We've all seen the "shit [whoever] says" videos. Now, there's one for Android users. Parts of it are pretty accurate, while others are a little exaggerated (from my experience, anyway).

Either way, it's still pretty damn funny.

P.S. - It's not copying if it's better.

    I feel like I'm too close to the guy in the video (except in looks, of course... pshhhh).

  • Air Rick

    I use the "Oh, I see the problem...It's an iPhone" quote on the daily lol. I'm such a douche..:/

    • IncCo

      dont change!

    • MikehMike01

      At least you're an honest douche.

  • Brian Walker

    This has brought all of my worst faults to light.

      you. are. my. hero.

  • cy_n_ic

    KUSTOM-EYEZ-ABLE!!

  • Lorenzo Cruz

    "what are your specs?"
    "what ROM are you running?"
    "dude! check out my ROM!"

    basically me in 3 questions :))

  • Tyler Chappell

    I counted 17 things in this video that I myself have said, and I don't regret a single one of them :D

  • Ben

    I'm a big Android fan and this video did not at least a bit offended me. =D
    Its just simple as that we have bigger screen, widgets, nfc, standard micro usb etc. in 90% we are better than iOS. =)

    I've said the thing about the Micro USB cable, I think I'm innocent of the rest. But Apple really is douchey about the cable situation.

    • http://twitter.com/rtorres81 Ricardo Torres

      That is one I am guilty of. Coworker is always asking if I have a cord to charge his iphone. We have tons of micro USB cables in the office.

  • Al McDowall

    *whispers* "Let me root your phone"
    That made me laugh, perhaps a little too close to home.....

    • Paul_Werner

      Me too

  • Grady

    Sadly I have said or heard all them......

  • Fritz T

    just roflmao

  • John O’Connor

    I'm disappointed. I was hoping for more self deprecating, sarcastic and ironic humor, and less douchey.

  • Brian T

    oh crap I have one of each what does that say?

  • Hugo Pinto

    Guilty of them all except the whining... and shopping for girls shoes...

  • Dwayne Wilkinson

    My wife is currently in a mad panic and scouring the house for hidden listening devices... o_O

  • Seamus Conley

    I've said a lot of these things when I'm openly comparing different phones (Which, is generally when an iPhone user asks why I don't use an iPhone) but never in douchey manner like that. I do see tons of other Android users just outright hating on people like this all the time though and it always bothers me. Especially because most of the people I see doing it don't seem to actually know what they're talking about . Being a Fanboy will never really convert anybody to your side, if you want to sway people too your ecosystem just happily use your OS of choice and thoughtfully explain the comparative advantages of it to other people if you happen to peek their inquiry.

    • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

      I've seen fanboys of both platforms act like that in real life. I don't think it's common, but it does happen. This stuff is so much worse on internet forums and comment sections.

      Ashley Esqueda of G4TV claims (https://plus.google.com/u/0/+AshleyEsqueda/posts/92SDQYNx5Rq) she didn't feel comfortable about going to the Big Android BBQ because Android fans were threatening her over getting an iPhone 5 to write about. I personally thought it was a gross overreaction to a bunch of basement trolls that haven't seen sunlight since Clinton was president, but I suppose she got the attention she wanted out of the event.

      • Seamus Conley

        Oh yeah definitely, I wasn't saying it was an Android only thing by any means. There's a reason why the phrase iSheep exists I know tons of iOS that will blindly defend Apple to there grave. And yes its definitely worse online but I still see a ton of it in the real world too. Its really the console wars all over again.

        • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

          Hey, I said the same thing about the console wars when I was talking to a friend during the Ashley thing. I remember searching for something a couple of years ago and stumbling onto an article about a game that was coming to both PS3 and 360, the comments section was nothing but people screaming at each other. If the site started filtering swear words, there would have been about 900 comments with 20 total words.

          Weird thing, I wasn't actually replying to your comment, it was actually to the comment from Jonathan. I'm not sure why it stacked onto yours. Oh well, no harm.

  • Jonathan

    Android people actually say these kinds of things? Gawd, no wonder other people think we're a bunch of whiny haters. Oh, and I've never known a true hipster to own anything other than an iPhone, so this video doesn't quite ring true for me.

  • Aviatora

    Lol that was funny; there's so many things in there I've said to Apple users too.
    Though the part where he asks the girlfriend in bed to "root" her phone is kind of dodgy, as here in New Zealand (and Australia) "root" is slang for having sex. :P

  • flippingthecoins

    "Even the magazine is twice the price " ..Awesome

    • http://twitter.com/moogz_ Luca

      so true xD

      • http://www.Mikereviews.co.uk/ Mike Brown

        double true

  • MikehMike01

    Exaggerated? It's not nearly exaggerated enough...

  • QwietStorm

    The first 10 seconds was funny, and then dude got annoying as shit. I know there are people like that out there, but I'm glad I don't know any of them.

  • gladgura

    I think we have now established the difference between android users and apple users. When commercials make fun of Apple people they get all pissy infancy and fussy and get all upset. When a video makes fun of android users versus Apple users we just sit back and laugh at ourselves. But then again, of course... there's always the exception. Very funny video.

  • monkey082506

    So they put all the advantages of an Android phone in a video and we're supposed to be offended by it? iSheepFail

  • http://www.facebook.com/RobJohnson90 Rob Johnson

    The only accurate things I noticed are "Can I root your phone?" And "What rom are you running?"

    I can't be the only one who must of the time sticks with unrooted stock manufacturer roms?

  • Cristiano Ronaldo

    That shit was funny but god damn... that's one ugly dude!
    Would face unlock work for him?
    Or would the phone go into a boot loop!!

  • Nashoba Darkwolf

    I would be offended by this video, if apple actually had a pot to piss in with its phone tech and mobile OS. Sadly it doesnt.

  • tredglx

    My adult son went through THREE D-roid phones in less than two years. Same failures every time: screen would display random crap, phone would reboot and dial random numbers, even just laying on the desk charging. Battery life sucked, reception sucked.
    Gave him my old iPhone 4 when I upgraded to the 4s, and he wishes he'd gotten one to begin with instead of his D-roid. He's never dropped a call, battery life rocks, and no hardware/software failures.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000003999549 Mike Harris

      What the hell is a D-roid?

    • Rohin Galhotra

      So why exactly why are you on Android Police?

      • tredglx

        Because a friend of mine who is one of you Droid fanbois sent me the link, that's why.
        Down arrow my comment all you want, but in my son's case, it's a fact: the iPhone performs better than a Droid.

        • Chris Lambert

          Good for you and your son, everyone's glad you're happy with your devices.

          Anyway...

        • Al McDowall

          "Droid fanbois"

          Just because you speak French, doesn't make you fancy...

  • http://www.Mikereviews.co.uk/ Mike Brown

    i'll just use my Youtube widget to watch this on my 4.7" screen in native 720p. :p

    Sadly this is so true, and I still do it! Not in that manner hahaha.

    "Standard micro USB cable"

    I'm guilty as charged.
