Been seeing loads of people posting about adding the wireless charging like Apple invented it.... none of them seem to like it when I point out my 4 year old Nexus 5 is a wireless charger

At least with Android you get options. Love the Nexus series. The Pixel 1 is okay, my only issue is the screen spacing between the screen and bezel is little to large but that's it for that phone.
Stuff working goes either way. I know a couple people who went from iPhone to Android and they'll never go back. I've also had it the other way around, but generally speaking it depends on which Android phone you use that determines how much you like it.
No, No joke, I can only comment through personally using them in work but not owning any Apple product.

Fair enough. In my experience it's the opposite. If you take care of any phone it'll last. I just have yet to see anybody except 1 person I know take care of it.

I'm not trying to bash Apple as much as I dislike them, but build quality and IQ are definitely not on par with high end Android phones

Well I have had 4 iPhones till today and not one has broken or so. So I personally think that most people are just clumsy when they are cracked etc. Since an iPhone is generally speaking quite sturdy and feels well built. But due to the glass screen etc, it's at the same time rather fragile and can/wil break quite easily unfortunately.

You said it yourself, if you take care of any phone it will last

And I've tried both an Samsung Ace 3 and the Galaxy S7 Edge, and I didn't like either of them.

At the end of the day, the "war" between iPhone and Android users are the same as AMD/Intel and/or AMD/Nvidia. It all comes down to personal preference and I don't consider myself a "fanboy", I've just grown to like the simplicity of the iPhone and it simply works for me. Hence me having several iPhones and still using it today.

The only gripe I've had towards iPhone personally, is that they haven't got wireless charging. Which Samsung has had for atleast 2 generations already.

I've had quite a few iPhones now as you can imagine and apart from the odd fall they've all survived unscathed. I owned a Galaxy S8, dropped it after a week and that Gorilla Glass crap shattered. Not only that but music and Google maps over Bluetooth was a complete fail in vehicles so it was useless to me.

I do like the new iPhone X but I do admit it's very Samsung like, BUT better. I am confused though as to why you'd buy an iPhone 8 when you can basically get the future of Apple iPhone now..?

Bit annoying now though, Apple Watch Series 3 is coming when I got Series 2 last Christmas and slightly revised AirPods when I just got AirPods a week ago lol.

The difference is you need to seriously try to protect an iPhone. Whereas with Android phones you typically don't have to. The other difference is you can take care of it but after 1 year the iPhone will itself. Argue all you want but I've seen it since day 1. After 1 year iPhones fail. Every time without fail. Forces you to upgrade. If you go above and beyond taking care of the iPhones and you use it less than normal (which is rare these days) it'll last. That's what I meant.

What a load of absolute, utter nonsense. I'm on a 2 year upgrade cycle as is my wife and we've been using iPhones since the iPhone 3g, guess what? Every single one of those phones still work just fine. Plenty of people I know use them too and the only one who's had an issue dropped it onto a marble floor down 3 flight of stairs, I dare any phone to survive that.

Argue all you want but you're full of it and you know it.

Yeah, I gotta agree with Linchpin here. Sorry NBD, but it's starting to sound like you're an very Android fanboy and really trying to get me to change my mind here

Say whatever you want doesn't bother me. Guess what? Everybody has different experiences.
Argue with others experiences all you want just makes you seem like you have your panties in a twist because it doesn't concur with your precious opinion.

And Chrazey I don't care what you like. Apple Android hell even MS phone. I'm just telling you what the difference is. Call me a fanboy all you want because I have a "personal preference" like you do.

You're doing no such thing, you're just spouting a load of rubbish like it's fact and then whining when people call you on it and try to hide behind "personal preference". I guess every forum needs a clown and you're doing a bang up job of it.
