[April Fools] Apple iOS is Superior–XDA Changing Focus

ios-android-war-iphoneindiaHere at XDA-Developers, we pride ourselves on being able to eke out the absolute most performance and functionality from our mobile devices. And as Portal Administrator / Editor-in-Chief for the site, it is my duty and responsibility to ensure that this information is highlighted through our media outlets.

A month an a half ago, when the XDA Portal reached its second birthday, I took it upon myself to evaluate market standings and determine which platform(s) would have the most meaningful impact in the years to come. Through this, I came to a startling realization:

iOS is simply better than Android.

It is with great pleasure that I announce today our new (and improved) focus. Rather than wasting our time with inferior mobile OSes, we will simply concentrate on the best: Apple iOS. While other OSes have downright copied Apple, some resorting so far as to traveling back in time to the year 2000 to launch their products, we can only recognize Apple iOS as the true grandfather of everything smartphone. Furthermore, OSes like Android and Windows Phone simply lack the resources and efficiency to compete in the modern mobile market. HP’s webOS and Nokia’s Symbian showed promise, but even they are simply no match for the Apple juggernaut.

Now rather than talking about our past mistakes, let me present to you our new websites:

Thank you for your support and for making this transition a success. I look forward to a great year with iOS!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OK, you didn’t REALLY think that we’d give up Android and WP7 in favor of iOS did you? And you didn’t honestly believe that Google was hosting a second week of I/O or that we were shutting down our marketplace. And most of all, I really, really hope you didn’t step on your Gorilla Glass-laden tablet or smartphone and use it as a scale.

Happy April Fools Day, everyone! We hope you enjoyed our pranks. Here are some other notable April Fool’s Day Pranks seen across the web:

Device Review: No.1 X1 Rugged Smartphone

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?

This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
