Fair enough, but I do, and I had zero issues typing on the iPhone screen

All I want to be able to do is view what I'm replying to in landscape mode, yet it seems to be an unfeasibly difficult thing to do on android.

Adjust the landscape keyboard height.

Did you sync with email and FB?

I don't have FB. I use K9 mail, not Android's built-in email.

I'm on my third android device. Started with a HTC Legend, then went to a Google Nexus One. After that I bought a Sony Xperia Arc. I just force installed the international version of ICS onto it to get rid of the carriers bloat ware. I'll pick up a new phone in the new year, but pretty undecided how I want to go. I think I want to stay in the 4.2/4.3" screen size, but I definitely want multiple cores.

My phone, nor her new phone have yet to receive the ICS update. ARG.
Update, her new phone got the ICS update, but mine STILL hasn't. WTFS?!?!

It's too hard to take screenshots in SMS/MMS in landscape on this phone. It works. If you don't believe me, I will ban you.

Why's it hard to do a screenshot? Girly small hands can't reach the button?

I can post screenshots later with proof it doesn't work on my phone...

Oh, I see it now. If you weren't half retarded, this wouldn't matter. If you can't remember the topic your texting about, maybe you should stick with the iPhone. Don't forget your walking-helmet.

I am with Hustler.

I don't see the appeal. You see only one line of text. Which forces Apple users to use texts as an instant message substitute rattling off 5 word texts one after the other. For what? just so you can see what you are replying too? Have fun cluttering up the airwaves. I would rather have 3 lines of text so I can write down my complete thought, proof read what I wrote and edit easily.

On the other hand, why dont you tell me how much stuff Android could do out of the box for years that iOS still cant?

I heard you guys are finally getting turn by turn directions. Only took 3 years.

I have said it before and I will say it again, using iOS is like being a guest in your own house.

I'm retarded? Ha ha how long did it take you to work out you were being a numpty? ;-)

It's ---- all to do with android vs iPhone either, it's a general UI glitch of which in android there's far to many for it to be pleasant to use.
