Because you know exactly what you want and the iPhone gives it to you? Okay, valid, but what if you change your mind? What if something changes in your life or in hardware and you want to use your phone a bit differently? With the iPhone, you're stuck with what you've got. Android is open source-- it can literally change as much as I want it to.
That's my take on it. Feel free to agree or disagree. The iPhone is certainly an excellent phone, regardless.
So this is actually the sentiment that I think I understand the least. I'm not sure that I understand what range of uses exist for a phone, other than getting apps. I could feel left out in the cold if I were to change jobs and find that my new employer would support android but not iphone (although that seems unlikely, given how popular the iphone has become for the enterprice), but other than that, I'm not sure how I could want to "use" my phone differently. Please explain what you mean.
