With iCloud, you don't even need to use iTunes if you don't want to.

People will always rationalize their decisions (myself included) but your reasoning is far out at best.

I'd like to point out the Samsung has some of the highest failure rates per device of most of the tech sectors that they are involved in.
I think you missed the sarcasm in my response to an obvious troll.

My phone actually cracked while I had it in my pocket. Something a phone should not do. But yes either screen can break, that was my point.

As someone else said, they are forced because apps stop working if you don't update. I do agree that apple does at least provide long term updates, but they do make older phones slower because they are optimized for the newest phones hardware.

My issue with iTunes is that it runs horribly on windows. I also hate that it makes you sync everything. There is also no easy way to just drag/drop stuff onto the phone. I have most of my music on my desktop, but sometimes I want to put a file on my phone from my laptop.

I am honestly happy there is no android version of itunes. A simple way to backup might be nice. When it comes to iCloud, it's basically a pay feature. The free 5gb wasn't really too useful for me. Even turning off iCloud sync for anything I could easily just download again I always had more than 5gb of data so I had to back up by connecting to my computer.

Again, it's personal choice at this point. If you like iTunes and the iPhone get an iPhone, if you like the s4 get an s4. Both have their own benefits over the other. It's whichever works best on an individual basis.

Yes. For me, the price of an Apple Laptop is not worth it based on what I would use it for.

Am I taking it personal or the guy who trolls every android discussion? Go look at your recent posts. How did I know you'll trot out the "I have a Nexus 7" line? If you're not a fan of something, what use expending energy on bringing up negative points about it to people who own it?

On a slightly tangential note, I find it ironic that Windows users bash what I believe to be Microsoft's best operating system in years- Windows 8.

Best how? In which ways is it better than Windows 7?

I might come around when flush border touchscreen monitors become the norm, but until then, I don't find it very user friendly or intuitive. It sure starts up real fast!

i guess voicing opinion = trolling. works both ways on iOS threads for android fans right?

I haven't read anything but this last page but can guess what this thread compiles...however, I dunno if your being sarcastic but I agree with the WIN 8 being best since Office 2001 Pro. And I find myself no longer being an "apple hater"....its just that I can't make switch cause Im in too deep with droid and open source possibilites.

If I owned a mac, iPad, apple TV, apple this and apple that then to me it only makes sense in owning the same phone for convience.

But anyone got good insight on the sony Xperia...I've heard good things but only heard

Yeah, OK... These are your comments in Android/PC threads from just the last week or so. You sure have some "opinions". But oh, you have a Nexus 7!

Why? You're obviously not sharing information or looking for it. You're looking for an argument and an opportunity to denigrate a product which you say you have no interest in. Isn't that just a quandary?

This is a good example of why OEMs should stick to the standard Android button configuration and stop making arbitrary changes.

Double tap on the home brings up the app list to close stuff down...just like I remember it from the iPhone...but better and much easier to close all of the apps down quickly.

The interface is bold, simple, elegant (different, which lots of people can't handle) and in general proves Windows is capable of joining the rest of the industry in the 21st century.

I know most of you already have these apps but I found it helpful and thought I'd post it up:
