I am sure I would have felt different after spending some time with it, so I guess I'd just say hang in there (if you're forced to by an onerous return policy) and I'm sure you'll feel better after a little bit of time.


Neither has Pio. The Fascinate he owned was not part of Verizon's Droid line. wink.gif

Android = Google's mobile OS.

Droid = Verizon marketing term for some of the Android devices they sell on their network.

It feels heavier...maybe because it's smaller.

Btw, just read the feedback on the Swype apps. Universally hated and apparently don't work. ffffuuuu.gif

Yes, my Fascinate was considered a buggy platform originally. It never was for me but I understand it was to many. Which is why I'm so ffffuuuu.gif over the highly vaunted iPhone 5.

Okay, let's convince me this phone is not a PoS. Let's start with Sens Clock. I loved. Big easy to read clock, had a ton of data on the widget, from how much free internal and expansion (expansion memory card. ffffuuuu.gif ) to the temp of the battery, % charged, and the weather with a nice quick picture that changed so I could see if it was currently storming, or a full moon, etc.

I managed to back up the iP4 to my computer finally. Never got iCloud to sync. But no matter, I have just restored my iP5 from the iP4 backup.

But I note now that iTunes seems to think the iP5 actually is the iP4... at least, it's named it that. But I still have the iP4. I want to keep using it, as an iPod, web browser, remote control, etc. in my home. How do I get iTunes to realize they're not the same iDevice?

ps. The map corrected itself after an hour or so.

pps. Fucking hell, LTE is fast! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


I'd still make an appointment with the Apple Store regarding the iCloud sync. You want that. Trust me.

Not sure about the issue you are having with iTunes. Once Apple launched "PC Free" with iCloud I almost completely stopped syncing my phone with iTunes. I do it on occasion, but it's largely not needed. If you go to the Apple store they can help you with this too.

I still don't have my iPhone 5!!! ffffuuuu.gif

Well I did warn you that you were not going to get Swype if you switched platforms. Don't know what to tell you here.

The problems you are expressing are not bugs. Some of them are not even problems, like the tabbed email which iPhone does have. Honestly, you just need to spend time with iOS to learn it. Same thing would happen if you switched from Windows 7 to OSX. It can be jarring.

I still owe you a more formal post on the comparisons.

We all warned you that you were not going to get Widgets (like the clock) too. You knew this going in. FYI, notification center can show you weather and stocks and that functions as a quasi-Widget. It's also highly customizable to show you emails, texts, app info, etc.

It's well known that the iPhone does not have expandable memory. Many Android phones don't either.

You can easily configure the iPhone to show battery percentage and/or time left on a charge via the settings. It displays on the info bar at the top.

I looked for that setting to turn email tabbed. There was nothing on the screen where you said to look.

How many email accounts do you have configured? The workflow I am describing here is based off of having more then one. I am not sure if it's different if you only have one account, but I can't see why you would be asking this if you didn't have multiple.

When you are in your inbox seeing the scrollable list of email you have, at the top left you will see "Mailboxes." Toch that and you will be taken to a screen with a list of all the email accounts you have. You can select the one you want to be in. I always go with "All Inboxes" because I like a unified mailbox.

I have four linked. On my Samsung I would open the email client with a touch. I would be given a tabbed screen with the tabs at the top of the screen like a browser page, so I could tab directly between boxes vs. this constant back and back and back way I have to navigate everything on this phone.

It's functionally the same thing, just handled differently.

Pio, many of the things you are bitching about are minor or are reflections of the nuances different UI have. You will never get iOS to look and function exactually like Android. If you want a phone to look and function like Android, buy an Android device. No one is forcing you to own an iPhone and accept the difference in how they operate.

Just keep in mind that you are used to TouchWiz on top of Android 2.1. Stock Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwich won't look and function like your old phone either. Hell, even the latest TouchWiz on the latest Samsung handset running a modern version of Android won't. You will just need to accept that changes to workflow will happen.

I guess I am not conveying my disappointment well or that disappointment will not register on iFanatics. I am first disappointed in myself for not doing more due diligence. I am pissed off at myself for buying into the cult of iHype. Then I am disappointed the iHype is quite obviously just hype and not deliverables. This is more than "nuances different UIs have." This is me discovering, in my brief iPhone ownership, distinct advantages my two year old phone has over the latest iHype-phone. I knew there was going to be differences and what I thought would be trade offs. I'm really pretty serious I've not found anything the iPhone does in a superior fashion yet. I thought the camera function was going to be just great too but have not seen an improvement in usability over my old Samsung yet.

Anyways, I'll try to stick to questions of use unless other folks feel the need to pontificate further as to why I'm incorrect in my evaluation or what have you.

So, to link a video you use the video tags. You then press the play button to play the video.

And that video makes you out to be a little princess in this exchange. laugh.gif
