Nah. It wasnt the first, but it was pretty much the first one that didnt suck and took the braindead user into account. Im no apple fanboi, trust me on that, but they did revolutionize the phone industry.

lol no they didn't. youre clearly a fanboi. they took what android phones already did and just slightly built on it, that's not revolutionary. ive never had an iPhone, androids dont suck.

if anything, Apple created a dumber version if youre saying they have braindead customers. making something dumb isn't revolutionary lol. Android is revolutionary in that they started it all, continue to evolve, and offers many more options at much more affordable prices


american teenagers obsess over iPhones. the world chooses Android.

Android holds 71% of the market world-wide. IPhone is only 28%

Ok bro. I didn't realize I was picking a fight with an android fanboi. Btw, both my responses to you were from an android phone.

Well my point was, they made it accessible. Yeah, you can call it dumbing it down, but that is often what is required to bring new tech to the masses. Jobs (or at least his engineering team) were pretty good at figuring that out at the time. Sometimes that dumbing down feels unnecessary to tech people, but you gotta get the masses moving to push things forward. There is no big money in catering to the tech savvy. Its just like Facebooks Metaverse, they havent figured out how to make it palatable to the masses no matter how good the tech really is. Until they can do that, its going no where.

they dont sell to the masses though. they almost thrive on creating a class divide. they aren't accessible at all, they're expensive as fuck. they're a status symbol & I think that's the only reason people view them the way they do. they reslly dont do anything a cheaper android cant do. I dont understand whats so complicated about an android to people.

the problem is that Apple chooses to make it impossible for Android & IPhone to work well together. my in-laws all have iPhones & it's like they cant even send me pictures, it's stupid. Apple goes out of their way to make it a class divider. like I dont want to spend $900 on a phone wtf

Bro the first iPhone was out for a year before the first Android phone. What are you even talking about?

IBM created the first 'smartphone' in 1992.


DopeDetective t1_j252mcg wrote

uh the first iPhone came out in 2007...

I didnt say Android was the first phone, I said the iPhone was not the first phone

the first phones with music and cameras were androids though which is why I said iPhone built on androids.

Yes, and?? The first Android came out in 2008.


DopeDetective t1_j253ed8 wrote

I edited too slowly. I never said android was the first phone. I said iPhone was not the first phone.

I really shouldn't say "android" because thats just the processing platform I think. but like Samsungs first cellphone with a camera came out in 2000. iphones just built off what everyone else already did.

Ah ok, my bad. Hell even Blackberry had phones out before Apple did.
