There are both pro's and con's to the removable battery thing but increased reliability in their computers and secondly their phones and portable devices is something that is widely reported and known.

What on earth would be a con to removable batteries?

Like I said before, I seriously don't see how iDevices are any more reliable than their Windows/Android counterparts. I'm looking for a concrete example to support this rather weak argument.

By the way, disregarding brands and OS'es completely for now, my most important criteria in choosing a phone were: removable battery, microSDXC support, acceptable audio quality, big screen.

This is probably Rikkun's reaction right now:

My phone supports external HDD's. Where's your God now? rolleyes.gif

Not really. I don't actually care about this whole debate, but I find it amusing to step in to the argument. Perhaps as a troll, perhaps as someone serious.

Rikkun, his comment clearly shows the lack of time spent with a Mac. And when I say lack of. I mean having a PERSONAL Mac that has been used extensively for a month. But with Rikkun, I expect that even if he does that , he will still like Linux better, but at the very least, there won't be comments on how he can't find anything or what the hell is going on with t.

Where are those statistics? You can say they exist, but that doesn't mean I believe you.

I have plenty of experience with a Mac (I estimate it to be >300 hours). I'm not saying it's bad, just that I find the UI less intuitive. It's still usuable, but I simply have a considerable preference for my current desktop environment (KDE). I realize this is entirely caused by me being a Windows/Linux user, but that does not invalidate my experience.
I don't think Apple is bad in any way, just that it isn't as suited for the audience of people like me as other OS'es like Windows and Linux.

If you think I'm an Apple hater, then you're completely wrong. I'm just a Linux preferer.
And I am also of the opinion that Windows is an absolutely crappy OS in terms of stability, RAM usage and reliability. Even Linux is better in my experience.

Con? There are many, you are introducing another factor of user caused error. By making it user replaceable, you need to have a removable something that of which usually looks asthetically unpleasing as well as strucually weaking the device both of which are important to Apple, next with no removability you can increase battery space and life as you can use up every millimeter of space with "less" plastic on the battery that most would have for consumers as since users can't easily take it out to have a baby suck on, it doesn't need the hard plastic on the outside and doesn't need the "Consumer" connectors up top and can just use direct pins that connect to prongs, this can and does increase Apple's battery life incrementally where they can offer Core i5 CPU's right now in less than an inch thick laptops with 8 hour battery life. Also people like me and Apple and 3rd party shops can make money as we can EASILY replace it. Apple batteries on all their products as of right now ARE VERY easy to replace if you do it carefully. And cheap too. Basically the IT business right now is all on dumb people, I wouldn't have as much money as I would have if everyone was tech savy.

 

iDevices!! OHHH I though you said their computers. iDevices vs Android or Windows reliability? There is none that can be accurately gauged of course....although we can argue that Android on a per by per base has less as Android includes EVERY device that uses it of which there are MANY in China with very poor hardware, but I know what you mean, "real" Android devices.

 

Your dream may just come true if you have an Android device with USB OTG or a Nokia with it..and the FiiO E18.

 

Sounds good but like I said before, I was just trying to put that as that EVERYONE has a different perception of what htye like. Sure, you don't like it , but many really like the Mac menu's and how it works with just as much windows experience, just pointing that out there.

In my experience, I don't think there really is any difference at all in terms of "user friendliness" or usability between modern and minimally competent OS's. It's just a matter of whether or not you are used to how something works and your preferences for how you'd like them to work. You can get used to just about anything and become proficient at it if you use it long enough. For example, I don't think there is a meaningful difference between using expose or using a superbar to navigate through your open windows if you are used to and good at using either one. One thing I do find retarded regardless of preferences or experience though is Finder. Curse you...Finder. "ᕦ(ò_óˇ)

*1: So you're implying Apple's customers are usually dumb? Because Apple's protecting their customer's idiocy by closing off the battery and make it non-user replaceable.
*2: Arguable. Most, if not all high end phones**1 don't look ugly when they have removable covers for their batteries.
*3: bad parenting


**1: I will be only using phones in this arguments LOL, since that's the most 'experience' I have.

Dumb? No. Humans in general can do bad things, with a remvable battery, if the phone is dropped, it could fly out or they could use or replace it wrong.

 

It depends on how you look at the phone, Apple's all in one designs are very beatuiful and popular.

 

Your questions aren't exactly attacking or opinionating my critique of both removable and non removable batteries, both are nice, it depends on what you have and or want.

But even if you don't think so, there still is, with how easy a user can perform tasks and what not. Yep, how it works but many consumers just don't get it.

You can argue that but when an OS makes you go halfway around it to share a photo, to save that, or have a half working menu or native app(very common) and lags, that is the cons of it. Needless to say, Apple suffers from some of that Y U NO SHARE PHOTO or Y U NO BE ABLE TO DO THAT QUCIKER type of moments, but for consumers it just happens to be that those somehow rank less than for others.

post #30778 of 131076

I saw this come up recently within this thread...but is there a way to store more memory than the already onboard iDevice memory? I keep hearing of some adapter that lets you use SD memory to play music/videos/photos from. Is this true? I'm a lil confused as to what it  was.

I was thinking more about the interface.

Umm yes and no, you can't exactly get apps to store to the external card though, some can, but most can't as downloaded apps are auto installed on the iDevices storage and other stuff and the adapter is VERY ....not useful to have attached.
