Or if our 2 year contract isn't over yet.

Mine ended very recently and I have upgraded to a WP7 device. I belong in the 22% minority but that's ok, I love my phone.

I'd prefer an iOS device too

But the handesets are stupid exensive
The plans for those handsets are even worse
They get updated once a year. For how fast the mobile market is moving, not often enough IMO
Android OS is much more customizable after root/jailbreak

So I got Android

Fixed.

My issue with the smartphone's out there are the plans they are tied too. I can't justify spending almost $100 a month on any of the phones out there.

Looks like my best bet is Virgin Mobile after my VZW contract expires early next year. $35 a month sounds right where they all smartphone plans should be priced at.

Really, how does any of this effect us? We're all going to pick what we prefer, a poll isn't going to change any of our opinions (some rather fanboyist as well).

Me, I don't use a smart phone. With my job, if I was to get a smartphone, I would starve. So I use a prepaid phone. Nothing special, just something that doesn't cost me an arm and a leg every month. I also have an iPod Touch for the whole "smart" aspect. I have an iPod Touch instead of an Android handheld because of less fragmentation and the biggest one, I can't find a cheap Android handheld that doesn't require a contract. I don't want a phone, I want something I can use for game development, and Android simply doesn't offer that right now. Not for cheap at any rate. And that's where I personally stand.

Hey look, there's that argument again. :3

Well, the consumer market is simply too preferential to what's hip and popular, so choosing iOS comes as no surprise. But for the educated person, Android phones simply do more for less. Just take a detailed comparison of what each platform can do besides having apps.

I bet the iPhone can't even have a backup system similar to a restore point.

I'm an educated consumer, and I'd take an iOS device over an Android device. Android can do more, but I don't need extra functionality. I need music/media streaming from my home server, web browsing, phone/skype conversations, and games.

I know what all the stats and numbers for phones mean, and you know what, I'd take a webOS device over iOS/Android. I guarantee you that I'm in a vast minority there, but I love webOS and want a Pre3 as my next phone.

This just in, different people want different things, even if they're educated on the subject!

The numbers speak for themselves. It's not that 50% of people are just stupid. It's that Apple offers a more appealing smartphone.

No offense to anyone, but almost *every* reason I see for buying Android is something that the general population considers to be "nerdy" (but I guess that doesn't matter on this website). For the average user who just wants a useful, fun, simple to use, yet powerful smarphone, the iPhone is a clear choice.
