Okay okay. No one needs to argue with god damn phone brands. seriously. Some people like Apple, but some people like Android, Windows, etc. Please don’t fanboy over a phone, and stop trying to defend your own team. This is not the point of arguments just because of a “Scan Document” update. I mean, Android and Apple are both good in my opinion.

Smoked Rhombus says:

Android uses 3rd Party Applications to scan their documents and so does iOS back in the early days but iOS11 Integrated That Feature into the Notes App so iOS Users no longer need to install/download a 3rd party app rather than Android

Before all the kids become brats. SHUT UP. No one wants to hear you complain. The companies aren’t even fighting. You are basically making flamewars in the comments. It’s stupid. It is a phone if it works. Not if it has advanced features. Heck, people even still use the iPhone 4s or the Samsung S4! Smh this is soo anooying. Hope you kids learned something new.
