Its stupid when people talk about the whole iOS vs Android ish.
When people buy Apple, they buy the OS unwittingly. If they had a choice there are many operating systems they would choose from so there's no telling how much lower the iOS numbers would be. One thing I do know is that iOS is nothing special compared to Android. They force you into a narrow confine where you're 100% Apple or none at all.
Android gives you options, making it easier for anyone willing to do the research to get exactly what you want ... different hardware, different specs, keyboard or touchscreen only, manufacturer of choice .. all what you want to make the Android experience truly yours.
If Apple allowed competitors on their device, they would be k!lling themselves. Their ish isn't as good so they move units by blackmail.
"You want music? Use our music player or else. You want a phone? Use ours or else. You want a tablet? Use ours or else. fu*k you doing watching TV? We didn't make one yet so slow your roll, son. You want a computer? We got one for ya. Don't worry the mouse has only one button. The phone and the music player has only one button and that's all you need. fu*k you asking about options for? Its our way or else, bi*ch."
Come on apple has been a hipster product for years beyond years. It has always been the OS for those to feel "higher than thou". As this individual mentioned, you have variety to choose from whereas apple provides you with one bottom line product. "In my opinion" (for the fanboys not to get angry), I'd rather have options than a take it or leave it product.
Ok, now i will go ahead and answer the questions of the diehard lovers
Yes, I can afford the overpriced machinery from apple
Anything else wouldn't matter because this is usually someone's argument for not liking apple
