probably a status symbol,Android is for the less fortunate lol. (I am one too but I don't care about status)

Where I live, Apple is seen as a huge status symbol but many cannot afford the latest versions. So you see a lot of people still buying the 6S or 7 just to save a few bucks over the newer models. I got the 8 Plus and was surprised at people's reactions towards it, but then when I visited the US earlier this year, everyone has an iPhone. Dime a dozen.

Eh. Status symbols are kind of dumb. I don't mean to brag but there's just simple stuff Android does that iPhone doesn't

-easily rooted for features like YouTube without Ads, background play, dark themes for all apps so you don't get blinded using it at night(super practical), internet with no Ads
-Android's sound quality is higher, which is odd when iPhone was a phone spin-off of the iPod. If you're rooted you can take it a step further with ViPER FX, the best sound mod you can get really.(amazing difference)
-far more customizable interface
-more apps
-more differentiation between models. Something for every price point

Just really practical stuff when you think of it. In many ways iPhone is wildly impractical and they've even made excuses for throttling their phones. They're not exactly cutting edge either, they have to wait years to get Android features. If it weren't for the fact most owners were rich kids I'd feel bad about them choosing something like an iPhone. I mean a music phone with crappy sounding music? Shit.

Where I live (UK), more and more people are wising up and switching to Android. Iphones are seen as overpriced and outdated, and people are increasingly looking down on Apple 'nerds' who blindly follow the brand.

Because people in the UK tend to be smarter than ppl in the U.S, lets not forget. :)

I use iPhone because I’m old enough to have had flip phones lol iPhones were the first easily usable, well marketed smartphones. In Canada at least. I’ve had one since the iPhone 3G. Now I can’t switch. I have all my music through iTunes and I just like the user interface having used them so long. Most people use them because they are easy to use. Everything works as you expect them to.
Androids are more versatile and a better value for what you get admittedly. But they can be a pain in the ass to use and everyone I know who has an android doesn’t even use the full capabilities of it. Android does a lot iPhone doesn’t if you care to use it all.
But in the end it’s strictly personal preference. They aren’t drastically different.

Undeniable proof that the average IQ of American kids is plummeting.

Your comment is undeniable proof that the average IQ of American adults is a result of that...
