That sentence makes no sense! Or is that what’s funny? The toddler-speak that Android users seem to be afflicted with?
If not, then can someone explain it? I assume most people over the age of 2 can speak better than that. Then again, serious “phone heads” (aka “BONE HEADS”) do seem to have a language all their own.

The caption reads: “I love all the features on this Android. I just wish I could hear on it.”
What I’d like to know is how anyone hears ON anything? We usually hear WITH things or occasionally just LISTEN. But to hear ON something makes no sense since the act of hearing isn’t a physical thing that can be placed on something. So shouldn’t that word “on” be removed or possibly replaced with the word “with”?
It’s a small change but a big improvement if the caption read:
“I love all the features on this Android. I just wish I could hear it.”
