The One Thing I truly despise about my iPhone

It’s just the one, I promise. My Blackberry 8310 had this as well.

The thing that bothers me so much about it on the iPhone though, like my 6 Plus, is due to the way I use the iPhone.

So you’re there on your phone: composing an email, prepping a tweet, editing a photo, taking video … and a text message comes in.

What happens?

Not much. The banner comes down with a preview of the text. Then it goes away.

Unobtrusive.

Same thing with email alerts, app alerts, etc.

No. Big. Deal.

But if the phone rings?

BOOM! YOU ARE COMPLETELY BLOWN OUT OF WHATEVER YOU WERE DOING!

Video gets killed, edits lost on a photo, etc.

I’ve had the iphone since the 3. I still get furious when the ******** thing goes off in my face.

“Well dude, it’s called an i’PHONE’ dude.”

Yeah, but it’s not ‘just’ a phone quite frankly. It never was. The iPhone was always a multi-function tool.

With the Blackberry it wasn’t bad.

What I don’t understand is why the damn iPhone phone function can’t just give a half screen dropdown with the number/label and Decline/Accept right underneath WITHOUT nuking the app you were in.

It really does irritate the hell out of me lol.

Ok, rant off 😀
