Kids at school keep hatin iPhones or Android, depending on what they have. What we need to realize is that everyone has different needs.
I enjoy tinkering with my phone. So I got an android and Lin'd it. I got many iPhone friends who love the simplicity.
Use what you feel comfy with, sure, be open to suggestions, but IT'S YOUR DAMN PHONE.
