    Your words. Not mine.

    TBH, most of the comments are to/about people who blindly buy Apple without looking at other options, purely because it's Apple. The sort of people who see nothing wrong with anything they may or may not do and treat everything Apple does as some brand new thing, despite it being around for ages on other devices.

    If iDevice is the best for you, fair enough. If you bought it just because it's Apple... You're going to have a bad time.

    @Little-Miss - to put your mind at ease, much of the problem and stigma lies with the blind, not the faithful. There's a difference. I will call *anyone* a complete and utter moron if they buy a product for either a £stupidamount per month contract or a £howmuch? one off amount compared to other comparable products, if they can't afford it or are stretching their means. If you know what you're buying, like what you're buying, and can afford what you're buying, then the only morons are those saying otherwise.

    I think this is much more down to the superior attitude that Apple users have traditionally had, this has been the status quo for ages and generates a certain amount of fighting back. All those snarky Apple ads about pc vs Mac showed that the same attitude was celebrated by the company and a large chunk of it's userbase. Is it any wonder there is a reaction especially from those forced to shoehorn Apples tech into areas it is not good for by the same snarky fanboys that promote it at all costs especially to those that don't bother to make a considered decision.

    I hear ya. Good to know...

    Feel like anyone that owns an iPhone is being judged the same. I'd like to think i know what i'm doing. Don't get me wrong as a lot of you know, i am tempted by the shiny shiny (and i personally don't think its that nice looking a device), don't I buy the thing cus it's got Apple written all over it.

    Last Android phone i owned was a HTC Fire, so like mid-low range hardware which didn't show me the best of what it can do, so i can't comment on it.

    I wont be dumping my iPhone 5 to get a newer one. When my contract ends i see what i fancy and choose then.

    Also...where's the purple?!

    iPhone users are lucky in regards to that.

    Because they're so popular, you can just buy skins/cases.

    I can't find any for my Galaxy S/S3...

    @Little-Miss: Don't worry. All the Android users are Ingress addicted hackers, the Blackberry users are the technological equivalent of old codgers without a touchscreen and Windows Mobile users can't post because there isn't an app for that....and their phone crashed. (I'd kid about that, but mine crashed at lunchtime ).

    I love the idea that I might have an attitude that I am superior to others because I am an iPhone user ... Most people tell me it is because I am a geek.

    However, the truth is simpler than that. I have an an attitude that I am superior to others because ...

    I AM SUPERIOR!!!
    Bow down before my awesomeness!


    Then again, my Lumia 920 is as good in most ways as my iPhone 4S, not as good in some and better in others ... but I still dig out my Sony Ericsson P800 to use occasionally, because I like tech and because I can!
