it bothers me because it makes you seem ignorant. you just spent all this money on a new phone and refuse to call it by its real name.

so many people i know are like
"omg i hate my droid" and im like
"well it came out it 2009 so its probably outdated"
"what? no i have the new samsung thingy"
"S3? S4? Stratosphere? which one?"
"Oh S something"

like god damn, why did you buy the thing if you dont even know what its called?

Sounds almost like the average iPhone user.

You don't see a difference between posting about a new pc in the pc building thread and complaining about people calling android phones "droids"? - you sound like a whiny douche.

I have always referred to most soft drinks as a coke. It varies by region as to what people call it. Calling Android devices a Droid is a matter of varying intelligence on the other hand.

At least the word "droid" is found in "android", calling all pop/soda coke is nonsensical.

To expand upon the argument:
If somebody says "droid phone" and not just "my droid", it seems like it would be easy to figure out since saying "my (motorolla) droid phone" is redundant. Just saying "my android" and not "my android phone" in reference to your phone makes no more sense than saying my "droid phone"; its the same thing as saying "my windows 8" talking about your PC. If you're not an idiot its pretty easy to know what people are talking about immediately. But if you're incapable of using context clues I guess I can see getting so butthurt about shortening "android" to "droid". Still makes you a baby back ***** though.
