Yes I love Android and that is what I use. But there are tons of people out there that love the iphone. It is a lot easier to use by default, there are countless of older people/and young kids that can use an ipod/ipad/iphone. This is great for them, a lot of people don't like to tinker with their phones, they just want it to work for them.
There is nothing wrong with this, for people like that, the iphone is the way to go. Also generally the iphone gets better battery life, this is for a few reasons. It doesn't have true multitasking like Android. No widgets or live wallpapers either. So this helps it battery life. Also ios has a lot less lag than a lot of the android phones, with each update android is getting better, but there is so much more going on with it that it is acceptable to me and hardly noticeable nowadays.
I personally like widgets and live wallpapers. I love tinkering with my phone all the time. Clearly I am all for android.
But no should be saying the iphone is crap, it is a great device, just not my taste. Clearly us on androidforums are going to favor android for the most part.
This is probably the most true of any statements in this thread. How can people say Sprint is not being loyal to its customers by acquiring the single most popular piece of cellular equipment? The small number of enthusiasts on this board pale in comparison to the number of "sheeple" who want their one stop shopping the iPhone provides. I don't foresee Sprint having a problem selling the iPhones, and in fact might lure back previous customers.
If Google really wants to be serious about killing the iPhone. Circle the wagons with Motorola as the defacto Android phone. Then make Amazon your partner for multimedia content, because if the Amazon Fire takes off like it might do, and dents Apple's hold on the tablet market with a closed Android system. I'm pretty confident it might try the same thing with cell phones too.
It's not always about specs and performance. Sometimes ease of use is the deciding factor.
