My coworker got a Samsung something Android. And I fell in love with the screen. I know everything about fragmented And screwed up Android is but it seemed to work quite well. Doesn't anyone else wish the iPhone had a bigger screen I feel like I got a piece of out dated 4s.

Get an iPad.

The second the word 'Android' is used on eiC everyone becomes sarcastic :(

It's only an OS, it's not that bad. The biggest flaw is the hardware on which it runs.

Samsung are good phones. I had the epic for sprint before this 4s and I loved it . I got tired of Android so I came to Apple side!

It would be another thread, but I wonder if screen size is the most often repeated discussion here:rolleyes:

And my answer is, No. Can't see why anyone would ever need it in a phone that they want to put in their pocket! As mentioned, that's why they make iPads.

That's your opinion, though. This is why we have a forums, so we can discuss things. I for one want a 4" screen, I mean, why not? 4 inches isn't actually that big. If you don't want a phone with a big screen, simple, don't buy it.

True enough. I'm just saying, it's a subject that is frequently repeated over and over. And over.

Hence the reason why this site needs an FAQ. I'm working on it :)

I think there is some impressive hardware, the Galaxy S II for example.

I can't speak for everybody but my comment was towards the screen size and the outdated comments that I've been hearing since the release of the 4S. I can speak for everybody that it's getting old, well, not everybody apparently :D

nothing wrong with a 4 or 4.5" screen it's not that much bigger. folks who say that a screen bigger than 3.5
is an ipad or tablet are folks who most likely have very small hands and fingers like toothpicks. so
in that case a smaller is best for them. but there are many folks out their who have bigger hands than
a 3 year old. and have no problem using a bigger phone. not too mention the iPhone is much heavier than most
Android phones and when you carry that extra wieght in your pocket, after using a much lighter phone.
believe me you feel it. it feel like you have a brick in your pants. lets not forget that nowadays most cell providers
off a 30 day trial. you should use that to your advantage.

Believe it or not, it isn't Android that people here are sick of.

It's amazing how when Apple releases a smaller iPod everybody goes "WOW" a thinner laptop, same response, but the phone needs to get bigger, because lets face it, we have to watch our movies and play MW3 on our phones, why buy a tablet when I can have everything in one device. Matter of fact make it bigger every year so I can sell my HDTV and use my phone for EVERYTHING!

Well, if you don't want a 3.5" screen, simple, don't buy it.

That argument doesn't really work, does it?
