I like Apple much better than Android. Just a preference and I like their customer service.

Neither. I want my phone to be as small as an ant. But if I had to choose, I would go for Apple because that's what I'm currently using and it's trending, lol.

Apple is good at making phones, tablets, and computers. Samsung is good at making monitors, tv's, and various other minor electronics like blu-ray players, projectors, etc.

I have the Galaxy S5, but I did almost get the HTC M8. The dealbreaker is that I keep my phones for several years. The battery will die before I'm done with the phone. The HTC M8's battery is sealed in and not replaceable without breaking the phone.

What? All that build up and this is all you're asking? Sheesh.

They both fit phenomenally well.

Apple is a marketing god who will be studied for decades to come for their success. Apple excels at everything that the technical among us would call "soft skills." There's a reason the "cult of Apple" is a thing. There's basically only one type of iphone user: one who loves it, warts and all. They don't care that there's only a few variants of iphone, or what the hardware specs are. They only care that it is indeed an iphone. Blessed by the spirit of Jobs, peace be upon him, amen.

Samsung and other makers of Android phones on the other hand cater to the needs of the rest of the market by offering broad and varied product lines to suit the needs and budgets of the rest of us.

Oh, and then there's Windows and Blackberry... yeah, they're still around.

I'm writing this after a brief conversation with my friends about the newest cellphone models coming to market.
Lets have a civil discussion about the cellphone war going on.

I'll keep this brief, cellphones which are "state of the art" in its hardware mean nothing in the modern world of mobile devices, here's why. Application developers are constrained by a few unshakable rules:

1) Your application's hardware requirements cannot exceed the capabilities of the most popular devices.
2) Your application must be accessible to more than just the most current generation of mobile devices
3) Your application must be accessible to more than just one brand of cellphone

I do not claim to be an expert in application, I have not developed one myself, but these rules only make common business sense because catering only to the demographic which keeps up with the latest technology puts you at a major disadvantage. This is because there is a limit to how fast people can adapt to new technology, therefore there will always be a large amount of your potential customers who have not kept up with the latest models of cellphones.

This being said lets say say a certain cellphone has a processor, GPU and RAM with modern triple A gaming capabilities, how well would this cellphone sell? Very poorly. Because cellphones like this do not cater to the unimaginably massive demographic of mobile users. This cellphone caters to a very small niche who likes the latest technology.

Now you may say, "but the hardware performance trumps every modern cellphone today!". This also is meaningless. A cellphone which is not massively popular will, just like the Playstation Vita, fail due to lack of support by both parent company, application developer and consumer.

The quality of a cellphone is not defined by hardware, it is defined by how well it fits into the current mobile market and the needs of both the consumers and the application developers.

How well do you think your favourite cellphone fit into this idea of market compatibility? Between Apple and Samsung, who does this better? Let me know!


Rules are meant to be broken that said. From a coding point of view purely speaking as a tester/developer yes I know how to read and write code. Hardware is always changing the landscape is not static what was the top specs two month ago is now at the bottom. So you don't go off of that you aim for the middle or lower middle more possible devices since users only replace about every two years roughly unless they have money to burn.

Application programing can be done on any platform the only reason you limit yourself to one is the time it takes to recompile your code to a new platform unless it is another language at which point you are rewriting it Android is mostly Java coding where as Windows and IOs are C++ but even that is a small hurdle to overcome. Isn't hard to find someone that can write both I know three myself C#, Java, C++, I can also do HTML on the fly but I can read and write those three. Been awhile a bit rusty but I know how to code.

So if you wanted to hit the most number of platforms possible code in C++ convert to Java. Which means Apple and Windows Mobile to start. I suggest doing it on Windows Mobile since they have a better set of development tools personal taste mostly but honestly dogfood is great when it comes to making the tools. Dogfood the practice of using what you make as habit so you know how to improve it. We make dogfood we eat dogfood.

Rule one: Coding is flexible and open.
Rule two: The platform only limits what you can do on the top end.
Rule three: Aim for the middle not everyone has the top, more users are in the average than at the top or bottom.
Rule four: Rules are meant to be broken a designed is only limited by their imagination.

Mime fits in fine does what I need it to do Nokia 928 with Windows 8.1 on it Cortana says hello.

If I were to put it in short, Apple devices are higher-quality products, but Android devices are far more customizable. I like each for different reasons

One of them was caught paying $340,000 to online reviewers to praise their smartphone and make fake criticism to the competitor's, such as the HTC's. guess which company did it. hint: it's the same company who refused to replace a broken Galaxy S4 under warranty because of a faulty power adapter, unless the user gave up on his warranty (meaning, if his next phone was faulty, he'd be out of luck).
