quote: Sorry I can't hear you over the sound of you NOT being featured in a world-wide tech article :)What some peanut butter with all that JELLY?
quote: Unlike you, I do not consider anyone an idiot just because they're using iOS devices.
quote: You're showing more ass than a pornstar here.
quote: I agree that he has a superiority complex
quote: that's the reason he's so difficult to reason with.
quote: Anyway I think we should get off of how epic I am
quote: That said, he doesn't troll, he just says what he believes, no matter how offensive.
quote: ... I've had some serious disagreements with Reclaimer over the years.

quote: If you, middle aged IT guy who spends all day on company time defending his phone,
quote: You people are obsessed
quote: Patches killing GPS on my GS3 did happen to lots of people though, myself included.
quote: He sure buys alot of Android phones for an Android hater.
quote: And the lion's share because Reclaimer was quoted rather than the actual story itself.
quote: Trying to understand your logic. SD card support, which Apple doesn't even have, is somehow on par with bugs that break your phone?
quote: Wake me up when iPhone's have SD card slots
quote: and they stop charging a fortune for $5 worth of flash memory.
quote: Until then, you have ZERO argument that even makes sense.
quote: Says the guy who wrongly claimed the Samsung S5 Mini comes with a Snapdragon 800-series SoC, when the actual specsheet said Exynos 3470.
quote: He didn't originally claim that
quote: It IS with KitKat.
quote: LOL, I don't care that iPhones don't have SD card slots irl.
quote: You're not doing too well trolling me, Testerguy3.
quote: So not being able to run apps from the SD card, but being able to use it in EVERY other way, is completely broken to you?
quote: Prior to Android 4.4 KitKat, applications — provided they had permission to access the SD card — could read and write to any area on removable storage, including the system folders like DCIM, Alarms, etc. That has all changed, and now third-party applications — as in ones you download from Google Play or elsewhere — can only write to files and folders that they have created or have taken ownership of.
quote: So you DO care that Android doesn't do SD support to your satisfaction, but you're also perfectly okay that Apple doesn't?
quote: You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means.As far as I can see, the only one trolling here is you. Badly.
quote: Oh look, troll calling others out for trolling, how novel!
quote: READ THAT. Then tell me what that means for phones with SD card slots.
quote: So not being able to run apps from the SD card, but being able to use it in EVERY other way, is completely broken to you? Okay whatever. Nice try.
quote: If you think $50 to go up a storage tier is cheaper than Apple's traditional $100 per tier, you are severely deluded. $50 is still overpriced.
quote: Just like every other iPhone update ever released, this has worked perfectly for me.
quote: And he's lying on top of that. Android updated "bricking" phones? FUD.
quote: Yes Android updates can fail
quote: You realize 9 out of 10 bricked/boot-looped android phones can be un-bricked, right?
quote: What happens when a software update fails on an iPhone?
quote: if that fails you can use DFU mode to select an older version of the firmware
quote: Oh and can I revert to the previous, working, version of iOS? Nope!!! Not without jailbreaking the phone. Why? Someone please explain this to me.
quote: Don't expect logic or objectivity from these people though.
quote: So what does this say about apple who can put out a software update for a hardware platform they have 100% control over -- because they designed it? Should something like that ever fail to update? Should the update, once installed ever exhibit the problems described by Jason in the article? Not unless the company is a total failure and did not thoroughly test their software.
quote: That would be Google's hardware
quote: No it's not. That would be LG.
quote: The Nexus 5 (codenamed Hammerhead)is a smartphone co-developed by Google and LG Electronics that runs the Android operating system. The successor to the Nexus 4, the device is the fifth smartphone in the Google Nexus series, a family of Android consumer devices marketed by Google and built by an original equipment manufacturer partner.
quote: An exaggeration that stings because it is based on a painful truth.
quote: I accept your apology Tony!
quote: What is your problem with facts, logic and reason?
quote: So you are saying that such problems are okay for a perfect device paid for with a premium? I can understand this happening with companies creating cheap devices but not for the most valuable company in the world. It's like they cannot be bothered to spend a little more for QA - something they are proud of.
quote: Nice to see Reclaimer77 getting so stoked over seeing his comments quoted :)
quote: "It just works" ? That phrase needs to be retired.
quote: it's going to eternally echo in the realm of technology as the butt of countless jokes and sarcasm.
