Just recently upgraded my 2-year contract with AT&T and bought an iphone5. I was always an Android user until some of friends where having OS bugs and glitches with theirs, so I just decided to try out the iphone. it's a great phone, but for some reason every time I whip-out my phone out of my pocket, can't help but feel like a douch bag. Does anyone else feel the same? opinions and or comments..
*Apologies if this sounds like a troll post, not my intentions.

I don't feel like a douche whenever I have my phone out. It's a decent phone but ever since I got my iPhone a couple weeks after launch, I've been having problems with mine. My next phone will definitely be an android.

I could give a rat what other people think of me when I whip out my phone. Take pride in your douchebaggery.

I have an iPhone5. I was going back and forth between iphone5 and galaxy s3. I was going to go galaxy s3 actually because i thought it had 2gbs of RAM and a dual core CPU but i found out that was only the international version has a 2gbs of RAM. I ultimately ended chose the iphone5. Even tho they're less "hackable", I find their OS to be super reliable and the hardware aint bad either. Evben though iPhone's A6 CPU is a single core, it's benchmarks are really good even compared to the s3's dual core.

Bottom line - Get whatever you want and f**k what people think.

I tend to go for specs and processing power, reliability, and what a machine can do. These things are all just tool for us users. Nothing less and nothing more. I have a MacBook Pro i7 16gb RAM, a custom built PC for gaming which i need to upgrade soonn and another machine running ArchLinux for.... fun... yes... fun.

I had an iPhone, but switched over to Android. Was having a ton of probs with the iphone that not even Apple could figure it out. But whatever, the phone was descent, i still like it, and that's about it.

I was also thinking about the galaxy s3 but it was giving a few of my friends' problems, which made me try out the iphone. I don't care what people think, but me, myself feel like a douch for owning one; I was wondering if other users felt the same. lol imho You sir are an exception; the majority of people that choose apple are reasons because its trendy, 'cool', and ridiculously expensive.
Nice, I as well built my own PC; will be installing a new board by the end of the month Hows does she run? (ArchLinux)

I don't feel that way, apple tends to be very optimized, and as mentioned earlier it overall just feels more easy to organize since I have almost every app in a sub catergory. besides I love the retina display not many displays have 326 pixels per inch.

For me it's the other way around. I used to be a big fan of Apple, and their products. until I started using Android. There are actually plenty more apps that can be used by android but not Iphone.

No I don't think people thinks you are a showy person to own an Iphone, On the other hand I think now it's the entire opposite, There are high end phones with better processing power than Iphone that uses Android. That A6 chip is very behind compare to latest samsung phones.

So if you have an Iphone, people might think you are uninformed, or behind the times.



Edit: For a while now, a quad core phone is the standard.. Apple Iphone A6 chip is very behind the times.

I have the iPhone 5, I had the 4 before that one and a razor as my first. I like the phone and haven't had many problems with it that I couldn't fix, it's the only phone I've had so I can't compare it to an Android or anything. The main reason I wanted one is because I owned an iPod and I listen to alot of music. I found it annoying to be carrying my iPod around along with my phone and wallet (only so many places to carry things).I love the phone, the only problem I have is that it's rather expensive but that's probably not going to change.

As for feeling like a D-bag, I don't, I couldn't care less what people think about the phone I use. I'll use what I like and other people can use what they like. I've heard people say things like people who have the phone are "Apple fanboys" and "hipsters" combined with all sorts of obscenities, yeah maybe some people are but I just like the phone simple as that. Sure it might not be the "best" phone but it serves its purpose for me, I'm satisfied with it and I have no reason to look for another one right now.

Owned a mobile phone about 15 years ago, never used it, decided I would never buy one again.

Bought a Galaxy S3 last year because people insisted I do. Barely touch it, except to send text every now and then and make a couple of phone calls.

I'm a technology nerd, but for some reason I just don't care at all about phones or the apps on them, and probably never will.

After I'm done with my gay crackberry, I'm getting myself an iPhone 5. Most of my friends have it, so I'd want an iPhone so I can interact with them easier.

I'm thinking about getting an iPhone 5. Not sure though. I like the HTC One for its beauty, but damn it's big. The S4 has great specs, but it's also big and not as attractive. Oh the choices.

As for what you said though, you shouldn't feel like a douche. Nothing's wrong with owning an iPhone. Many people do. They're great, pretty reliable, and hey you get updates! Also, since a majority of people use it you're able to see those damn emojis that everyone uses.

Xperia Acro S kicks ass. 720p, waterproof up to a meter, micro sd card slot, looks slick. If only I had money for the Xperia Z. That thing is a marvel of human creation.

As for the iPhone, I wouldn't get it. But if I did get it, then no, I probably would not feel like a douche. But that's generally because I don't do very douchy things, so maybe I just don't know what it's like to make douchy decisions.

Edit: I just thought of a scenario that solves it -- if I worked for a company that payed for me to have an iPhone, then no, I probably wouldn't feel like a douche.

No need to feel ashamed with a phone. You use it as a phone and don't run to strangers saying "I HAVE AN iPHONE!"I have an iPhone 5 and enjoy it. Does what I need it to do and if people don't like me for owning something I wanted, oh well. So enjoy what you got and don't let others judge you.
