When will iPhone stop being popular?
Every year when this hyper-capitalistic time we call "Christmas" comes, iPhone market share goes up. Why do normalfags still consider this device with inferior hardware consider worth buying?

The only hardware inferior on the iPhone is less RAM, which doesn't matter because iOS is much more efficient at using RAM than Android is. The problem with iPhones is that iOS is shit.
Are you an Android phone user? Do you remember what it was like when there weren't many apps for the platform? Do you agree with how infuriating it is to see developers make apps for iOS and totally ignore pleas from users like yourself to port it? Do you hate Apple fanboys/girls? How they and the media always talk like the iPhone is the only smartphone that exists, or that matters? How they're utterly clueless about how to function outside the iOS ecosystem but insist that they're whizzes because they know all of Apple's "intuitive" (read: not really intuitive at all) use paradigms? How the media always leaves off better-performing Android phones in reviews and comparisons for iPhones, while ALWAYS mentioning the iPhone in Android phone reviews (in order to point out how it's superior)? How those reviews are always clearly graded on some weird scale so that the top Android phones and tablets never, ever get better scores than iPhones and iPads? And how major tech innovations are ignored until they show up on iDevices, at which point they're hailed as a breakthrough that will change everything? And, knowing all of this, don't you hate how the aforementioned fanboys and media refuse to acknowledge that these things are true, even when all it does is bring the conversation about mobile devices back to reality, instead of a weird LaLaLand where Apple's products are perfect and unassailable even when you can do things like bend them in half?
Congratulations, you understand white privilege. Owning an iPhone makes people feel like (or reaffirms their feelings towards) being white.
Because it looks cool, it just works, and you don't even have to think about how expensive it is when you're paying off the subsidy in monthly installments that all but the most destitute of people will be able to afford.
Plus, you don't have to deal with shitty samshit bloatware.
This whole mobile phone fad needs to end. We're fucked as a society because we need our mobile goddamn internet and communications everywhere to pretend like we're socializing instead of really doing it.
And being monitored by the government.
>BUT DEH MONITOR U AT HOME
Not your every fucking step and ability to create false associations by location to fuck you over.
>not being able to watch youtube and write emails at the same time
Windows mustard race
But I bet Apple will just make you buy two phones and call it their innovative iTaskMaster technology
When will the smartphone fad be over?
When are we getting laptops with 4K resolutions and 1-week battery life?
I know so many people who don't even own a real computer, just their smartphone, maybe because they can't afford anything else but their monthly bill?
I just don't understand it.
Why are you comparing a mobile operating system to a desktop operating system? If you want to bring Windows into this then OS X lets you write emails and watch youtube videos at the same time.
Never, probably. I only just got my first smartphone recently. It's too damn convenient. I'd rather have something in the same size with a slide-out keyboard, tiny trackpoint, and running Win7, while retaining the capability to make calls, but it'll never happen.
>hurr muh evil capitalism
>lol fag sheeps
>I'm so enlightened
>South Park image ebin XD
Kill yourself fedora neckbeard
There's absolutely nothing convenient about a smartphone unless the only things you do are send texts and make calls.
Everything takes so much longer to do on a smartphone than on a real computer.
Not really dumbass, and computers don't fit in my pocket and get cell reception and speedy data.
>he spends all of his time in the basement
>thinks he's qualified to speak about technology for people who actually do stuff
It's a fact.
In 2014 if you prefer to be tied down with a laptop, or god forbid, a desktop, instead of a much more extensible and portable smartphone, then you have no social life, and most probably have never held a job in your life.
Can we just get a phone board to keep all idiotic phone discussion off of /g/?
None of it even relates to technology anyway, it's all dickwaving over specs and mindless one-upsmanship with apple.
>I'm so old school guys give me real buttons not touchscreen shit ;)
Good luck browsing the Internet or literally doing fucking anything besides dialing a number. And if you have buttons and a touchscreen enjoy all of your precious space taken up for something that you only use for short entry occasionally.
God some of you fucking retard losers on /g/ infuriate the fuck out of me. I'm so glad you fucking spergs don't get to design phones.
The only flaw in your argument is pic related :^)
>Can we just get a FOSS board to keep all idiotic linux discussion off of /g/?
>None of it even relates to technology anyway, it's all dickwaving over ricing and mindless one-upsmanship with gentoo
>they have different opinions and feel that some features are useless for them
>ggrrrr you make me mad
Kill yourself with that anger then if you're too dense to realize some people find touchscreens unessential .
>I like making things harder on myself because I'm an old bitch who's unwilling to change
>I also secretly think that it's really cool and edgy to hate on clearly superior newer tech in favor of difficult and archaic old tech
Good luck browsing with that numpad fuckhead
I'm sure it happened, I just don't really follow iPhone news.
Maybe you could connect this to Hernán Cortés and the myth of Quetzalcoatl. White thing gaining a mythical status for no other reason that being new and scarce.
Dude what's "ba-ee-tsu"?
That would be very interesting and I'd love to see you explicate.
It is when it allows people to ignore reality without any social consequences. If someone says that iPhones have faster processors than other phones, you should be able to slap them. Same for white people.
hey I second that. Look at this motherfucker on my pic.
All I want from my phone to be like a pocket computer. I don't feel that on android for some reason.
The phone is for two people:
- Teenage girls
- Old people
Unfortunately teenage girls drive the phone market and old people just like it because it functions as a phone.
The only way to kill the hype is to make something teenage girls will like.
that feel when clover doesn't window
>probably uses amd
>thinks it's better cause muh cores and muh ghz
>We're fucked as a society because we need our mobile goddamn internet and communications everywhere to pretend like we're socializing instead of really doing it.
Maybe I just see the grass as being greener on the other side, but all of the most socially well adjusted normalfags that I know love mobilefaggotry and social media. If anything, I'd say I, the guy who doesn't like/use social media very much, is ruining society more than them.
