Wow, this is like the good ol, PC vs. Mac poop flinging.
You like Apple and their overpriced, boutique business model? More power to you. By all means, swoop on in and crap on the thread with how bad Android phones are and how only Apple and iO$ can save us.
Is Android the greatest? Probably not, but life goes on. It's gotten noticeably better with recent releases.
All I can say is Apple's OS must be friggin brilliant for all those people to continue to stare at those tiny screens.
As for "get a tablet with a cell modem in it." Really? Is that what the Geniuses at the Apple Store recommend? I suspect that doesn't convert a lot of people. I'm not convinced an iPad mini makes a proper cell phone. To be fair, neither would my Nexus 7.
When one reaches the age when you have reading glasses all over the house and work, screen size matters. Why the heck should I suffer through crappy little screens, or... sorry, lovely little screens at those prices?
Good news! iPhone 6 is supposed to come with a 4.7" screen. Kudos, they've caught up with the Galaxy S3 in screen size. Wait, never mind, please, tell me more about the pixel density on those Retina displays.
Can anyone explain to me why Apple can't see their way clear to bring out a 5" (+/-) display?
Then of course there's the "they want how much to upgrade from 16 to 32gb?" issue. Seriously, is Apple memory made of that Unobtainium stuff from the Avatar movie? Only true Apple acolytes will tolerate that sort of pricing scheme.
On the positive side, Apple uses kick butt processors... in their high end phones. Pity the poor folks stuck with the more affordable models.
Now, if the OP had actually asked about Apple products...
