An Iphone is perfect for you, as it allows you to stick to the apple brand through the years and be assured of a high quality product (although not the best, as they used to be), and due to the high costs be assured it will remain relatively exclusive.

I have some dictures on my iphone, but they were taken with my old 5MP. They do look clearer on the retina display though.

Generally speaking, an increase in MP does not correlate to an increase in image quality, and tends to have a negative impact on low light performance. However, some SF members may find the extra resolving power of 8MP useful (when it comes to dictures).

8MP is needed as a minimum to capture the majesticness of my dictures.

You have a macro lens?

Careful! That's just asking for some fanboi grief.

This is a great point and should be kept in mind during online discussions like this. Android users often like to point out the use of custom ROMs and kernels as a major plus for the platform, but this is ignoring the reality of the mass market. Most people have no idea what a ROM is or would ever bother to root their device. You can brag all day long about how "open" Android is, but that's not a concept in the world that most smartphone owners live in.

I also have yet to hear a compelling argument on how installing a custom ROM on an Android device is all that much different then jail-breaking an iPhone. Depending on the hardware there may or may not be a few more steps, but the end result seems to bear similar fruit.

This does not accurately frame the issue. With Android there is a huge spectrum between "factory settings" and "custom ROM" but with iOS you have what you get (splendidly simple UI!) or a jail-break. Android allows one to do as little or as much as a person wants.

And even some Apple leaning folks here have specifically mentioned how nice it would be if one could put icons wherever the hell they wanted vs. having to line them up like little fanboi soldiers. smile.gif

Sure, but how many people actually take advantage of this? Just because you are sophisticated enough to do so, does not mean the general public as a whole does. My initial point was centered around the fact that it's important that we look beyond the "bubble we live" in this regard. wink.gif

My father just got an iPhone last night. It is his first smart phone. I give him two days before he breaks it.

Um, I think you are forgetting my "geriatric ass" has been informed that I am unable to operate such high tech devices proficiently. wink.gif

smile.gif I thought the similarities were striking..

In all seriousness though, I'm quite adept with electronics and computers, but the last 5 years I preferred to take the "lazy" route. I just dont have the time, patience or peace of mind anymore to configure everything untill its to my liking, and even then I'll still have the occasional crash/getting stuck/etc. moment.
Hence the macbook(although that is all about osx, and not the laptop itself) and the Iphone. Even though I still miss some features (BB unified inbox! and nokia battery durability) , the reliability and general ease of use wins me over.
