1 thing that I'm not very sure for android, if you buy a new phone is there anyway for you to transfer all data from old phone to new android phone?
For iphone, quite simple just backup & restore using itunes.

iPhone$$ are usually out for me as I prefer to spend as little as I can on a phone so that I have more for cameras/lenses :bsmilie:

Here ya go:

Google Sync

For starters, Google has you covered when it comes to most of the important contact and email information. All your app data (like game saves) calendar, Browser, Contacts, Gmail, Photos, Music, People details, and even more detailed things like WiFi passwords and other device settings. All of this can be synced to Google’s servers with two or three taps in your device settings, and restored when you get a new device.

Just curious: how come when Apple announce new phones, Android users will go out of their way to slam it (not just here but on other forums too). But it is not true the other way.

Does it backup everything including all your apps & sms?
There are two options / ways:
1) Branded Android phone (e.g. LG G3, Samsung Galaxy series etc.) usually come with a backup software from the phone vendor. It's part of their branding on top of Android.
2) Non-branded phones (Google phones) come with plain Android + Google stuffs. Here it's up to the user to select and install the necessary backup tools.
Contacts go to Google / Gmail anyway, there is no need to set any backup. Photos can be pushed to cloud (Google Drive, Drop box), some of these tools offer even automatic sync to cloud the moment you snap the picture. For other documents people can use tools like FolderSync and others to keep online copys and backups of their data.
For apps there is no need to backup (although tools like Titanium backup can do that). After getting a new phone and linking it to the Google account the Google Play store will push all apps applicable for installation.
More options, more freedom. None of these requires any central tool like iTunes.

It's just fun. We welcome Apple users to catch up with the technology status that other people have already for two tears :)

Moderator's advice:
Please keep it civil guys, brand wars for phones are off limits similar to brand wars on cameras.

I guess you meant "years". Although I have heard of someone nearly in tears trying to learn how to use an Android phone.

Anyway, on technology: some years ago I attended a close door meeting where the boss of a local firm who claims to have invented the portable MP3 player took out his company's player and a iPod. He then went on to slam the iPod for how it lacked all the latest technology and features that his had. Guess where that company is at these days.

Bottom line: technology is a consideration but not the only consideration in consumer electronics.

I remember a story that when google was on the drawing board for a smart phone, it resembles a BB with a physical keyboard...after Steve Jobs unveiled the 1st iPhone, google promptly trashed all their designs...think for all android users that try to trash the iPhone, maybe they should remember that without iPhone, the android might not be how it is today...think without iPhone, smart phone technology would not be as advance as it is today.

Steve Jobs had said before that apple does not seek to be the first, but the best in what they do...enough said...

Not even a consideration. The late Steve had one guiding mantra: user experience. And here he is perfectly right. Technology is interchangeable as we can see; both platforms have touchscreens, cameras, a plethora of sensors and whatnot. Now both have NFC chips installed. But while the Android camp had it already for quite some time (leaving it open for others to use it) only Apple made the full move to implement a payment process using NFC. The user experience is: just swap, payment done.
To me it seems both camps need each other and will continue to exist.
