No, it is a horrible comparison. And you're making it worse.
For one, you can do a hella lot more than "play" on an iPhone. And for 99% of the smartphone owning world, be it iPhone, Android, or whatever, we're all doing pretty much the same stuff with those phones anyway: phone (obviously), communications & socializing, web surfing, apps, light gaming, etc. You make it sound like every Android phone is being used to do uber high-tech things...it's still a phone to practically everyone, people.
And second, you can do pretty much anything you want with an iPhone too. If it matters that much to you, it's trivial to jailbreak it and then it's wide open. It's fine if you have a philosophical stance that this stance should be unnecessary, that Apple is a bunch of evil control freaks and all phones should be open from the start...okay, great, I get why Android is more to your tastes. But ridiculous allusions that only Android can do all that stuff are false.
I should have posted this the first time, but thought better of it: Console vs. PC is not a correct analogy, Mac vs. PC is. Mac OS killed DOS and Windows in the early days, it was just silly to compare the two products. But PCs were open and customizable, and consequently released in many makes and models by many manufacturers; which generated a much larger market share over time than Macs, which remained (except for a very short period) an Apple-only venture. We will see (and are already seeing) the exact same script play out in smartphones: iPhone literally invented this product space, but is remaining closed and an Apple-only affair; while Android is playing catchup in features, but its open nature and wide array of products is already causing it to overtake iOS in sheer deployment volume.
Nowadays, you can connect to the internet with many consoles, you can browse. So, in thory, you can do pretty same things, but in practice it matters what is projected for.
On a console, you just enter the DVD or usb stick with the game and select Play. On a PC, you have to type your username and password, you have to enter the game trough the desktop icon, then browse to the menu where you hit play. And I didn't mentioned the installation time which most people get caught in, and then they will say: "Why we need more clicks to do the same thing? Why the process can't be the same as on Consoles? This PC's are very bad, they lack a good user interface"
It's the same thing that iPhone user complain: "Why we need 3 clicks when we actually can do it from only 1 ? So, on consoles you can do more things, but you have the game at one click away. On PC, everything is at more clicks away, but it is well balanced among more type of tasks.
On iPhone, you have everything at one click away, but they assume you do the only thing they told you. "Why you need that when you have games one click away?"
