Re: Yah, Yah, Yah.
You didn't just moved the goalposts in your pointless and brain dead rant, you swapped them for a basball mound and moved the entire stadium.
I have an iPhone, so there goes all that Android nonsense straight away, and that's without the fact that there are many, many good Android devices out there.
Apple don't make the hardware. The bits are made by other people and assembled by Apple.
If batteries are consumable, why are they so hard to replace in an Apple device? In fact, at one point Apple said they weren't consumable and shouldn't be replaced. You should replace the phone instead.
Apple have admitted that they slow the phone down, so your ramble about email fetch, sms and signal are all without merit.
You don't get to choose if you want a slower phone or a faster phone, Apple make that decision for you.
Come on fanboy, this isn't a BBC "Have your say" article. This is a technical site. You can't just BS your way through it.
