Buying an apple product say an iphone can be a rational decision.

I got an Iphone because all my family members own them and it allows free calling without a phone plan.
Plus i hate Android for how terrible the UI is.


>< education time

You can get that EXACT same plan with an android phone BUT it works for calls to any type of phone AND its cheaper

The UI is nearly identical just android offers more customization

Not where i live Android doesn't provide facetime which i use alot.

Also the UI is VERY different and i don't care for the customisation it's a waste.

Try harder also Androids are only $100 more cheaper then an iphone at best plus it has a cloud service and last time i used an android phone there was no cloud service unless they changed that.

Not worth the time by calling someone uneducated you are looking foolish.

I use both iPhones and Androids. I'm currently using an iPhone 7 Plus as my daily driver until tomorrow (Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is being delivered). I currently have a Samsung Note 6, Google Pixel XL, and an LG v20 that I use as test/backup devices as well.I buy these phones outright (not on a plan) and they cost pretty much the same:

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus (64GB model): $840.00 (plus tax -- $879.90)
Apple iPhone 7 Plus (128GB model): $869 (plus tax -- $910.00)
Google Pixel XL (128GB model): $869.00 (plus tax - $910.00)

If you purchase any flagship Android device, you're going to pay close to the same price as that of an Apple iPhone variant. Also, to clarify what Ryulightorb was trying to say: with Facetime, you can make audio-only calls for absolutely free. This is useful for those who have family members who are devout Apple users (or even kids with iPads/iPod Touch). Now, of course, you're going to say "But Ninjitsuko, you can do that with Android and Hangouts!" -- which is true. The main difference is that Hangouts isn't installed on all Android devices by default - whereas Facetime is installed on all versions of iPhone. Flagships will generally have Hangouts installed as they are part of the GSuite that Google requires for all "legit" installations of Android.

The UI is different enough to cause people to notice, unfortunately. Yes, Android and iOS have both come a long way and look somewhat similar (for the most part). The main thing there is that iOS' UI is polished for the most part, while Android has various launchers to try to make up for the variants of the UI (Samsung's TouchWiz, LG's Home, HTC Sense, Xiaomi's "Mi Launcher" ... etc). Then you have the UX of iOS versus Android (UX is "User eXperience") whereas more people are comfortable with the "out of the box functionality" - whereas, in some cases, you'd have to find features through apps on Android to get the same functions as iOS (nowadays, it's getting closer to a tie - but the UX isn't there yet for Android's UI).

Typical uneducated Android fanboy. I use both because I enjoy keeping a level head about these kinds of things. Price is the same as long as you're getting a "top of the line" Android or a regular iPhone device. UI/UX aren't similar enough so it's left up to the individual and their personal preference.

On Topic:

I wish people were more "grey" about things (sort of relevant to my response above). I feel that people are quick to dismiss the "opposing side" simply because they don't agree with one another all the time. This isn't just operating system choices but also political party alignment, social issues, and so forth. It seems that the level of discord/conflict has only grown. It reminds me of when I was a child and had both the Sega Genesis and the Super Nintendo - while my friends would argue about which one was better. There is no "better" - just what's relevant to yourself and your own desires, opinions, and such.

Totally disagree. Grey is a bland loss of individuality, a bleak conformity within a muted gradation of imposed shadows. It doesn't allow the expression of personal light, that spectrum that makes us who we are.

I wish people weren't so obsessed with politics in a way that destroys lives. For example, I'm best friends with a guy who disagrees with me on politics - he's a libertarian and I'm just not particularly anything. Last time I voted Labour, he voted UKIP. I voted against Brexit, he votes for it. We've had a few fights but I could never ask for someone so loyal and loving and I wish people wouldn't judge each other on their political alignment. I'm not one for censorship and really believe that white supremacists and stuff have a right to say stuff even if we don't disagree, but sometimes I also wish they didn't exist.

Mostly I just wish people would leave each other alone, y'know?


A great deal of politics is at the base level concerning social mores. In essence, what they find morally permissible or not, something exploited greatly. I can understand it, even if the reasoning in the first place is something I disagree with. If someone considers me to be a baby murderer, no different than Genene Jones for supporting abortion, then I should not be their friend, just as if they were blatantly supremacist in their views, then I would not be their friend either. There is a great deal more issues in politics, but there are fewer people willing to do anything more than base level, presumably because they are unacknowledged about such issues, especially concerning judicial precedence.

I think morality is very important to a person. I think tolerance should be encouraged, if not for the sole purpose of maintaining civility.


Yeah, but I made friends with this dude because we sat down and we talked about it. We bothered to listen to each other rather than making assumptions, I could have easily told him to take his Brexit arse and bugger off and he could have called me a "remoaner" - but we didn't. He's Catholic, cool with me being lgbt+ but believes the church shouldn't define marriage (and that lgbt-marriage should be separate for the same reason). I think if both people are willing to debate it in a civil way, the better.

I guess what I'm saying is, while I wouldn't happily be friends with someone who hated me - it's worth talking just to not miss out on okay people.

I wish more people had enough self-confidence, so they wouldn't keep trying to take mine.

I wish more people would stop giving a fuck about what other people believe or do. Let them do what they want, and live YOUR life, not THEIRS.

IDK about other people, but when people try to shove morality, religion, or politics down my throat unwillingly, I don't want to agree with it even more.

It's why I'm for gay rights, legalized weed, and abortion. I'm certainly not gay, a lady, and I rarely smoke, but I do get annoyed when people try to force other people to not do something that they are gonna do anyway.

Luckily, all three of these things are legal in my state. My annoyance headaches have dropped 50% ever since gay marriage and weed both got legalized. The Christian majority actually shut up and tolerate it now. (at least it open public. I know some personally who do not approve of family members in gay relationships.)

Well, the manner of "grey" I'm speaking about doesn't remove individuality - just allows for more of an accepting nature of other perspectives. When you lock yourself into one, unified, truth then you're pretty much stuck on auto-repeat until death. It's boring, characterless to be the brightest or darkest shades of personality. I find that the bright/dark shades are more conforming to their norms than that of the greyscale these days. I understand the lure and desire to have such vibrant things; just disagree that it supports individuality. Especially when it's become (more or less) that those of bright/dark colors tend to latch onto one another and feed each other's opinions/views to the point of conformity.

You’re assuming extreme opinion A and extreme opinion B are the two points by which we judge everything else – that all thoughts, opinions, individuals fall somewhere in a greyscale between. That’s conforming to someone else’s shadow. What if you didn’t give A or B that power over you? What would you be?

What I’m getting at is transcend that limitation, be what you want without intrusion from others. If I want to be the chartreuse pixel in a sea of indigo, that’s my prerogative. Empower people to be the color or non-color they choose and those guarding extreme opinions A and B become rather insignificant. There is no lure or desire for vibrancy, just a live and let be attitude.

It really annoys me when groups metaphorically circle the wagons when one of their own is caught doing something bad even though they'd be quick to condemn an outsider for the exact same thing. Similarly, people's tendency to judge the actions of people they dislike much more harshly than the actions of people they like has always struck me as incredibly unfair.

So, to answer your question: I think society would be better off if it weren't so damn tribal.
