Apple does make great products. But, because of their tightly knit ecosystem, they could keep increasing the price year by year and people would be hard-pressed to buy as they are already trapped in their ecosystem. Yes android do keeping increasing their prices, however, in the android space there is stiff competition, every android phone released in a year is a possible upgrade path, from Samsung, oneplus, oppo, huawei to google. If you arent happy with Samsung, switch to other brands, they are all android. Innovation comes from competition, android phone markers are push faster wireless charging technoloy, faster wired charging technology, fast screen refresh(120 hz), crazy sharp zoo, etc. I am not saying in anyway apple devices are bad, but their innovation year by year is running stale, incremental upgrade with a price hike.
Stop using Samsung as the only comparison for android as a whole, Samsung isn't the only android phone in the market.

What the ****?

My Samsung phone battery life is absolutely garbage. 100% to 20% in one bus ride from office to home when I don’t even use.

That was when I told myself enough with this garbage.

what Samsung phone is that?

I have used Android, Windows and iOS. I prefer Windows, but it is dead.

Android phones have some nice features and iTunes suck.

But I am using iOS now primarily because I want to be as far removed from Google as possible.

PS.I know Apple also collects my data, but less.

Don’t mind me asking why is Windows dead?

For being as far from Google, what have you done so far? Do you use DuckDuckGo? I am and it’s not bad.

Reading some threads and comments in EDMW of this site, I realised that the amount of hate on Apple is sky high.

Thoughts? I thought most Singaporeans are using Apple products and is one of the biggest market for the company?
hate on outside, deep love on the inside

I was referring to Windows Mobile. And yes, I use DuckDuckGo, together with Vivaldi browser and the privacy extensions etc. In fact, I have reduced my use of FB too. No Google docs or tracking on YouTube either.

Some will call me paranoid but I don't need Google and FB to know even more about me than I do myself.

Just regular hype followers who bash Apple coz they cant reali afford it.

When u defend a brand, u called urself a neutral guy who used both ecosystem which is stupid becoz they like to label u as sheep.

Apple still make decent great phone, maybe fufiled 70% of most ppl 's expectation. Altho still got some features they refused to put in 11.

you guys know that the Android beta was modelled after the Blackberry OS right?

When people say if there is no Apple, there is no Android, it is very true

End of day, reliability is most important, no point having the latest tech that isn't reliable or require work arounds

Changed to a S10+ after 5 years on iPhone, seriously contemplating moving back to iPhone, moving to a new Android device requires too much effort already

From apps to notifications and settings, too much of a hassle
