    Wow. I would prefer more color but I like the simplicity. Of course the author had to point out that this is something Adroid users have been able to do for some time, nah nah na nah nah.

    Android users don't have time for stuff like that - they need to be running their virus checkers... ;-)

    nobody has yet convinced me an iphone is worth the money

    my samsung galaxy does everything I need and I don't have to feel guilty about supporting apple given it's rapaciousness when dealing with app store developers

    it is better to say nothing and appear a fool, than to open your mouth and confirm it is so
    and a donkey is always best left to bray alone...

    It's all good.

    The last iPhone I bought cost 90. Our whole family uses iPhones so we are part of the ecosystem.

    Best thing for me is that I can make and answer calls through my MacBook and all of the iMessaging.

    I have an Android phone and an Android tablet - but only for cross-platform app development testing.

    I can extend my comment to apple computers

    have to say 90 GBP sounds fair - is that 90 for the phone only [no sim] or is it as part of a package ?

    I generally don't buy new phones. My Android phone was new because it was dirt cheap.
    Similarly I generally don't buy new Apple kit unless I can source it at a good discount.

    I use an Apple MacBook. It is a joy to use and look at.

    I bought it at two months old for 66% of the new price.

    We don't need Apple wars here do we?

    I share some of your Apple misgivings as a company.

    I'm not against apple kit at all - just the pricing....

    we all decide for our selves, plus I like to customise my hardware which is easy with windows based kit, and [possibly as a result of that] I have an aversion to buying second hand technology
