Samsung and Google equals innovation. Apple equals restrictive software, small screens, and cult like following. They can take a brick and put Apple on it and their fanboys and girls would buy. Lol. I'm glad they started it all though. Sorry to get off topic.

Most Apple fans do regardless of its limits. Good product, but too restrictive.

Not really sure how it's restrictive. Works great for all of my needs.

Can't customize. Can't change battery. No nfc support. Small screen. The list goes on. It's brand loyalty. Nothing to do with performance or what the software lets you do. It has to be jail broken to do customizations. That's more important to me than brand loyalty. It's like buying Nike's even if there is a better performing shoe. Just because they have Jordan written on them.

Apple makes the highest quality products. The others are like Radio Shack - they may have cool gadgets, but they don't always work very well. Apple products simply work.

If that's what you believe. I disagree. Apple has good salespeople who can convince. I've used both. Apple isn't for me. Too restrictive.

Why in the world would you need to change the battery? I think the screen size is great myself. Go figure.
