    1. No Jerry…….Your gone
      Yup, one gone dude!

      Just love it when trolls know Apple has the best phone & software and is now has the cutting edge software lead.
      They are so conflicted that their hate is denying them
      ownership of this superior phone.

      1. That’s a funny one coming from an Apple groupie.

        Isn’t everything in the media about Apple all speculation?

        Does anyone really believe anything the media has to say about Apple products anymore?

        Apple is for groupies who are unable to think out-of-the-box.

        You want innovation, you will LOVE Microsoft.

        Microsoft is COOL, INNOVATIVE and offers only best-in-class products at the lowest possible price (unlike Apple who offers low quality products at the highest price possible).

        Apple on the other hand is same old same, old same, old same old.

        You’re gonna LOVE Microsoft!!!!

        1. Thanks for answering my question as to who would actually believe this. It appears it is those who have an IQ level below 50, are under the influence of illicit drugs, and think Steve Ballmer was a great CEO.

  1. The amazing thing is that Apple iPhone and iOS continues to gain share throughout the year, even though new iPhone models are released only one time each year (and it’s not a big mystery when the next ones are due). The Android collective releases new phones all year long.
