If you are an Android fan boy that's great. Seriously, I have no qualms which camp people wish to reside in. Apple and Google mobile worlds are quiet different, thus it all boils down to this: If you like Borio's instead of Oreo's, Duplo Blocks instead of Legos, preferred Zune instead iPod, leave your car doors unlocked and home front door wide open, then Android phones are for you.
Daniel Bader of Android Central recently reviewed Apple's iPhone X. After reading his review I genuinely felt sorry for him. Bader had to bend, contort, or piecemeal his article in an attempt to come up with an Android outcome that could stand on the same stage as iPhone X. And what of privacy? Bader never much discussed privacy in his review. But it's not like security with iPhone paired with iOS is anything new, and Android paired with off-the-shelf pinball machine parts is something not new.
I'm going to avoid the temptation of going over Daniel's review piece by piece. It would take too long and showcase all he omitted or doesn't understand about iPhone and iOS. Suffice to say, he's not an iPhone guy, so he doesn't get the depth of some iPhone features and where and how they can be used. Bader likely knows his audience and is catering accordingly.
What jumped out more than Bader's lack of iPhone understanding, was that an Android publication was going full tilt to review an iPhone. Does Android Central review every new iPhone (albeit slanted or blindly so)? It isn't just Android Central reviewing iPhone X, it's a host of Android-centric sites all reviewing iPhone X. However, when new Android phones come around, even flagship versions from Samsung, it isn't like Apple or iPhone centric publications are scrambling to get their hands on the devices and review them. Why is this?
Want to know which phone is the best? Which phone is the leader? Which phone is every other phone trying to become? It doesn't take days or weeks of reading review after review to figure it out. Actually, it's rather simple. Just look at iPhone-based publications and how they review new iPhones against previous iPhones. Check out Android sites and watch how those phones are always compared to iPhones. And really, that's all you need to know.
