    Linus. Google offers password save NATIVE thru chrome. Last pass is just more 3rd party junk. Just sign into chrome on your phone and computer and BAM. Last pass without 3rd party BS. Best part is that is automatically signs you in to even your apps when you get a new phone. So as long as your Google account is secured. Your life is secured.

    Apple took inspiration from word because any time I try to change where an app is, everything else gets messed up too

    I don't care which one is better. I like both. They are both awesome. I would never judge someone for liking Android or iPhone. iSheep and Fandroids are equally annoying. I love my iPhone Xs. Before this phone, I loved my Galaxy s7 edge (in my opinion better than the s8 and 9, but that may be biased).

    If you love iOS, too bad for you: you always need to spend big bucks when you buy a phone. With Android, when the bills are piling up you have a choice to buy cheaper phones.

    I do agree with a lot of things Linus my boy said, but some of his reasons involved hardware instead of just android in particular. And as you can see from my profile picture, I am biased, so please don’t egg my house and write harsh comments if your a diehard android fan. If so, I will find you and kick your butt.

    People actually hold their phones in their right hand! Why? When your left hand should be more than capable.

    Linus just nicely summed up what makes apple different from the rest of the competition and always has made them different since the beginning of their history. Technologies are popping up in every corner of the industry constantly, but to reach the average consumer you need to package it nicely into a simple and intuitive product that works well and reduces stress and complexity for the average consumer. People want to just buy a product that they can effortlessly learn to use, and make work with their other devices and seamlessly integrate into their lives without having to educate themselves on how it works. Android users love to claim superiority becuase of the customizability of the hardware and software, which makes tech geeks excited. But surprise surprise, 95% or more of people are not tech geeks, and they want to be able to use their tech as simply as a microwave or a toaster—as Steve Jobs put it, the product should feel like "an appliance". This is an incredibly complicated challenge that android manufacturers lack the sense or balls to do. Fandroids love calling apple users uneducated "sheeple" who don't understand technology, but who the fuck cares about how enlightened you think you tech geeks are? Without apple, tech would still be a niche plaything of the tech-educated but Steve Jobs made tech approachable for the average human, which is what has always and always will make Apple much better loved by the majority of people.

    Not a butthurt apple user or anything but I gotta give the jailbreaking comunity some cred. I remember back in 2010 I had a iPhone 3gs where I overclocked the cpu and could install custom apps from the "jailbreak appstore" or even from piratebay. And also change the color the notification light flashes? Thats stock on oneplus for years back.All and all I prefer android in todays with the more or less perfect oneplus 6.

    1. Customization was fun at first but it died pretty quickly. Also, Customization on Android is not giving you that much freedom. And these customization are mainly messing up the stock UI even more makes it looks and works worse than ever. FYI I've been messing around with Android (root, custom roms, modifying UI elements and all that shit) since my first eclair phone back in 2011, so get this fact right before you accidentally embarrass yourself by saying I know nothing about tech. No matter how hard I try to make the UI looks and works exactly as I want, it just failed me all the time. The only way I'm able to customize it the way I want it is editing the internal code itself which is too risky and difficult. 2. Side loading apps and OEM markets are cool, useful for some occasion. But I don't think it's important at all. Besides, when all the OEMs started to put their own market on the phones, which are showing apps that is already exist in the PlayStore, you know how sucks it is right? Oh, you actually have a similar way to side loading app to your iPhones through iTunes. But Apple killed the feature last year.3. iTunes and how iOS works is pretty much one of the strongest reason what made me stays on iPhone. Just drop anything into the iTunes and let the software sort the files for you. Drag and drop might sounds more simple to you but wait until you see those files you dropped to your Android phones messing all over the place. Even if you managed to sort them out folders by folders (by spending maybe half or an hour), you mostly can't do anything abut the file naming system, tags and everything. Some of my CD-ripped or illegal downloaded mp3s are missing some tags on Android even if I already set all the variables. On iPhones? I just need to put them all on iTunes, rename some shit (probably took few minutes), sync, and it's all sorted automatically on your phone the way you sort your media on the iTunes. And this not only works with musics but also for videos and movies, all sorted on their own categories, with the actual name/titles and all the extra details as tidy as you want4. Split screen is great, but I almost never using it after trying it few times when it was still new. Unless you have a longer screen like the new Xperia, you might use this split screen multitasking pretty often5. Apple definitely put the USB-C to newer iPhones6. Why would I need a back button showing all the time in the far bottom side of the display (which very hard to reach, and also eat some screen area) when I can just swipe anywhere from the left side of the screen to go back? Nothing is more ergonomic than this. Or do you actually mean you don't know this feature exists for years????? damn tech enthusiastsMy current complain with iPhone is that Apple need to let the Control Center toggles turns the bluetooth and wifi off again, and they also need to make it easier to send/receive pictures with PC because I threw my Macs away for a Windows computer due how sucks their computers are. And my biggest complaints about Android that the whole system itself suits better for an actual desktop computer than a handheld devices. Some other tiny cherry picking things are the UI became much more inconsistent compared to 8.0 Oreo, and they added too much unnecessary apps and features that is useless unable to delete completely, thank God I can uninstall most stocks apps I don't use on my iPhones
