soviet iphone

I bought an iphone for a contract app and when my android died after 4 years of use I thought, how different can it be ?

It sure is shiny, fast, works well under stress and the battery lasts considerably longer BUT what you give up is flexibility. Try doing anything out of the ordinary, like changing your freaking ringtone to a custom tune.
I checked, it takes 12 steps and going through the mess called itunes to do it.

Now I know, the convenience you get is paid in actually NOT OWNING your phone. itunes owns your phone and it will decide to do whatever the hell it wants with it. iphone is your soviet appartment and itunes is your assigned commisar. You want something changed ? Have fun complaining to him, you may end up with no appartment. I want even go to the privacy issues because ... you know ... google.

I'll still keep it because it cost me 600 euros, but only as a dumb media player.
