I am sure there is a lot more android fanboys posting on the iPhone than there are iPhone fanboys posting on android.
That's not true at all, at least not here. With every major Apple or Android release the trolls come out from both sides, and it's not demonstrably worse from either. It's disappointing, to say the least.
However, there are also plenty of people who want to openly and honestly discuss these devices even if they don't intend to buy them. We don't require that you be interested in a device to talk about it, just that you follow the rules and, above all, respect other members.
The iPhone doesn't exist in a vacuum, it has competition and I feel like it's a worthwhile exercise to compare and contrast it to its competition. Whenever a new product is announced, smartphone or otherwise, the first things people seem to think are "do I want it" and "is there anything better". The problem is that many people seem to forget that so much of the comparison is entirely subjective. Treating subjective opinions as facts doesn't help further the conversation, and is typically where things go off the rails.
So talking about how you wish it has a bigger screen like [insert Android phone] because you've used said Android phone and like the screen real estate, or you wish Apple had added this or that because Android phones do this or that is fine. Saying that the iPhone 5 sucks because the screen is too small, or only fools will buy it because Android phones are so great, is not fine.
I hope people here understand the difference. The policy is, as it always has been, you can make relevant comparisons to the competition, but you cannot troll or steer the conversation away from the iPhone 5. Such posts will be removed.
If you have them, I'm happy to take questions or comments about this via PM or in the Member Feedback forum, but please limit this space to discussion on the iPhone 5
