There's a good reason why iPhone has the marketshare it does, and why Android has the marketshare it does, different strokes for different folks, not one half of the population intellectually superior to the other.
Trust me when I say that I'm just as annoyed by the couple of iPhone fanboys in this thread as the Android fanboys.

This is the god's honest truth, but Soccer moms, chavs and other mouth breathers are the main reason there are so many iPhones in circulation.

That is NOT a slight on the OCN'rs that own them at all, because they're on OCN and thus not an idiot by default (in my eyes) but I see many, many many technologically inept people with them. I KNOW a lot of technologically inept people with them. They're simple phones that are easy to use and have boastable features.

Exactly, a bare bones OS for those who don't know or care.

Not really, it has most capabilities that most users need. There are a few handfuls of things iOS cannot currently do. It's just extremely easy to use for even the most technologically challenged consumer.

This says otherwise:

It was confirmed that those were faked.  OCN's own results did not match anything indicated in that graph.

Good god, help this forum. The results were NOT faked. Engadget ran their own test and got a higher score than what's in the OP

Two times faster? Twice the graphics performance? Better battery life? Actually, yes. The iPhone 5 over-delivers on all those promises. Running the Geekbench test suite on the iPhone 4S gave us an average score of 634. The iPhone 5 netted an average of 1,628. That's more than twice as fast and, while you won't necessarily see such huge increases in day-to-day usage, apps do load noticeably quicker, HDR images are processed in half the time and tasks like video rendering in iMovie are equally expedient.

No such thing was confirmed. The graph was pulled directly from Geekbench's aggragated data (i.e. lots of lots of sample points) with the only unconfirmed result being the iPhone 5's, which was substantiated yesterday with Engadget's review.

Whether these numbers are relevant is of course an entire discussion in and of itself, but calling them "fake" leads down a dead end.

I think the term flawed or better yet 'unscientific' would be better

We've seen those benchmarks, and they have been proven to be false. Multiple times.
They have most definitely not been proven false. The Android results vary. They even vary a little on the iPhone 5 -- scores from 14xx to 16xx.

They don't use their consumers or abuse the tech market. They make products that hundreds of millions of people like. That's that.
