Android Fans to iPhone Fans: iPhone is an error
Linux/Windows, AMD/Intel, Nvidia/AMD. There are always battles between the hard-core lovers of their products, and smartphones are no exception to the “who’s better” conflicts. Here’s one story that’s no surprise.
In less than eight hours, they had maxed out Google+’s 500-comment limit. Boy did I get an earful. Here’s why people buy iPhones, according to Android fans:
The iPhone is a status symbol. iPhone buyers are attracted to the Apple brand as a prestigious status symbol or fashion accessory, for the same reasons people like Rolex watches or Gucci bags.
The iPhone is a smart phone for dumb users. The iPhone is supposed to be easy to use, so novices are attracted to it for that reason.
iPhone users are ignorant. iPhone buyers don’t know what Android phones are capable of, or how unnecessary iPhone limitations are.
iPhone users are suckered in by skillful marketing. iPhone users are brainwashed sheep, victims of Steve Jobs’ reality distortion field. Product announcements, commercials, packaging, TV and movie product placements and other marketing campaigns by Apple have convinced users that it’s a better phone. The iPhone’s assumed superiority is marketing-driven perception.
