    People get really tribalistic and defensive about phone operating systems. Myself included. The best post is one that supports your tribe.
    Stupid people focus on the math, smart people focus on the information.

    Imagine if someone posted one of the opposite articles in the Apple thread for no reason If you read the article it reads just like standard 'controversy' clickbait for website traffic.

    He says things that are plainly false, offering no backup whatsoever, and goes on to say some things that are extremely hard to believe. I feel like most people have long got over this pointless debate - everything is so polished and so fast now, you can just use whatever hardware/ecosystem you are in and you will be happy.
    Most of the analysis was generic, but he's right about notifications. They still suck in iOS and I have little hope they'll ever get it right. They can't even get grouping right, which is just bonkers.

    Any place that uses Xamarin to develop their app cross-platform will have a slow Android app as Xamarin's compilation on Android is horrifyingly unoptimized.

    I've been an avid Iphone guy since they came out.
    Just quit my job and had to give my iphone back.

    Picked up a Galaxy S21, we will see how this goes.

    You can't disable notifications when using an app (e.g. while playing a game).

    Can't arrange grouping - it's just LIFU.

    I still have rogue notifications that don't get grouped.

    I should be able to get a notification on my lock screen that just say "from app".

    Also I should be able to set a global "there are notifications" setting that shows that I have something to look at.

    And to top it off iOS 14 has some weird bug where notifications just don't appear for some apps.

    Well, it's been 6.5 weeks since I ordered the S21 plus/ultra/uber/supernova edition.

    Samsung quoted 4-5 for shipping. That was annoying, but to miss your target - unacceptable.

    I wanted to give you a try Samsung, I really did! But I think I shall cancel.

    Yeah that's way too long to wait. I liked the Navy blue color the best but I was scared of delays and I use a case anyway so I just ordered black. If you aren't set on the special color you can probably get one quickly, otherwise maybe contact them for an ETA and if they can't tell you, I'd probably cancel it too.

    I'll probably just wait to see what Google comes out with next.

    After ten years of of using google phones, I decide to try Samsung and they immediately trip over their dicks. Not a good way to get a customer.

    People who are huge on Insta prefer iPhone due to better camera integration instead of screen scrapes of Android version. The lack of hardware diversity make app makers life a bit easier on Apple.

    This has been a terrible year for tech shortages in general, but I wonder if they are having issues manufacturing the special colors or if they were just in higher demand than expected. The S21 Ultra is by far the best phone I have ever owned - screen, performance, cameras, everything is just excellent. Genuine 2.5-3-day battery life is the cherry on top. Especially if you use a case anyway, you might consider just getting a black one or whatever.

    Next rumored Google phone release is a Pixel 5a, an update to their budget Pixel 4a. I am not sure if they will have their in-house Silicon done for this Fall or not, but I would guess it'll be at least another year for the really interesting stuff from Google.

    Samsung works directly with Instagram to polish the experience - not sure about other brands. I don't use Instagram at all though myself.

    Someone needs to make an even more elite phone on the osx platform. Then sell to millennials, but they have to line up for it and they only make 100,000 of them per quarter. But colored differences exist.

    I call it the Supreme iPhone collab.

    Insta-boners all around??

    The OnePlus 9 Pro is scheduled to be announced on March 23. Looks OK, nothing too amazing. Fall/Winter is when most of the smartphones for the following year get announced so it's done until this fall for the most part. S21 Ultra is still the best out there in the Android world at the moment, at least of the phones available in North America.

    If I were you I'd just grab a black S21 Ultra and be done with it, but I also understand that you might be a bit salty over the 6 week delay on your original order haha.

    salty? Sure. Disappointed that I tried to switch brands and they fucked it up. Morons.

    Their order page doesn't even have a cancel option, or a "contact us" buttong, never mind a chat window. What year is this? If they suck at this aspect of the experience, how can I trust them the rest of the time? Google and Apple get this shit right.
