Am I the only one who thinks the iPhones a toy?
I feel like iPhones a joke, everything from their apps to their poor security. I look at the iPhone as more of a phone to play around with, the iPhone has barely even changed over the past 5 years besides looks. Anyone else feel like it's more of a gamer phone?

Yup. Absolutely. It's a toy.
That's why NASA has a contract for them. And many hospitals. Doctors, nurses and surgeons all want to play with patient files, treatment protocols, and diganostics, so they use toys like iPhones. And the reason so many schools use them, such as universities, is because as everyone knows anyone who goes to school goes to play only and nobody every goes to actually learn anything.
And I use an iPhone whenever I want to do stuff to organise my day....not sure how I manage to do it without any games and such.....
Definitely a worthless useless crap device that is only good to play around and which has absolutely no redeeming qualities.Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy, and good with ketchupThanked by:

Although I do think that Apple built it with that intention (it was the smartphone that really started the consumer smartphone revolution after all, and most consumers don't really need a tool - but they love their toys), that doesn't necessarily mean it can't serve as a tool. I think the biggest thing that helps the iPhone is the ready availability of specialized-purpose apps, which is obviously a bit more problematic on a brand-new platform such as BlackBerry 10.Z30 (10.2.1.2141) | PlayBook 32GB (22.214.171.1243) | Lumia 1020 (GDR3, Lumia Black) | Nexus 4 (Android 4.4.2)

I have to disagree. Prior to coming back to Blackberry, I had an iPhone. The phone is great at what it does. It is easy to use and is great as a first smartphone. My Achilles' heel was the touchscreen. Doing lots of typing on the virtual keyboard was not something I ever appreciated. I came back to Blackberry (9930) because of the physical keyboard as well as the OS. There are quite a few reasons that I love Blackberry, but I wouldn't say the iPhone is a toy. There are many smartphones out there and many different choices as to what best suits YOU. For me, it is Blackberry.

Lets not forget how everyone laughed at facetime and thought apples html5 adoption was evil, oh microsim,thats evil too. Apple has done a lot to bring technology to the mainstream. And blackberry has ensured that for security minded clients there is no replacement. Both can exist without animosity.Thanked by:
