It seems that U.S. citizens are more fond of iPhones rather than Android devices, as a recent study correlates iPhones with education levels
Pfft, I'll never own one! Samsung FTW!
It's mostly a status-thing, I believe. An iPhone is considered high-value, so 'earns' you more status, while you've got Android phones in all sizes and prices. Also, an iPhone is an iPhone. It just is what it is, and people KNOW what it is. Somehow, people seem perfectly fine with accepting it's limitations, while perhaps Android-users are a bit more 'demanding'. Thirdly, obviously, because there are so many Android phones, there will also be lots of mediocre or poor Android phones around, so yeah, of course those customers will be left less satisfied. Personally, I'm very happy with my OnePlus Android. It's not 'perfect', but neither is an iPhone. Hardly any phone is 'perfect'.
I think its because most of the people who use an iPhone don't even know its limitations.
Meh, I believe so many people have been burned by shitty Android phones there is a hefty popular opinion that Android sucks/unstable/gets slow/no OEM support ect. I have went back to Android 2 separate times and have gotten burned both of them. Once bt HTC and once by Samsung. If me, the technical user gets robbed, then my mom for sure cannot handle it and I would never recommend it
I'll take my HTC One m8 unlocked on Straight Talk all day long. 45.00 a month unlimited everything... It's actually more like 40.50 a month due to the wal-mart discount as my wife is a Pharmacist & a manager for her pharmacy. She is also using a HTC One M8.. Statistics like this are always skewed.
i find it funny that andriods usually does what iphones do .....and do what i phones usually don't do but its about quality over those specific features they accuracy of the keyboard i have massive hands and a tiny iphone 4 in my hand and i can text no issue... but with samsung gs3 (andriod ) it was horrible and the phone was waaaay bigger! go figure im on ios 5 steve jobs ios not tim cooks wanna be andriodish ios
I prefer my Sony Xperia.
Totally agree, i had both a iphone 3 & 4, looked at the 5 and saw nothing that merited a upgrade, i went for the Z2 in the end, great phone, much better quality than the iphones, OS is also so customisable.
your avatar is cute.
Not really a fan of all these phones in general but is it true that an iPhone is much *safer in terms of **security features that it is with a Samsung and others? Have a friend whose a mobile phone addict says this is why iPhones are more popular besides the status thing.
