    Why is Android so confusing to regular people?

    So a guy at my job and I have had an ongoing debate about iphone vs. DROID. Of course while we are discussing this, other people over hear us.

    One of our co-workers came out and said that the G1 was way better than the DROID.

    Another one bought a mytouch after playing with my droid and loving it. And while he wasn't there my friend i've been debating with said that the mytouch was way better than the droid. And like 3 people agreed.

    I told him that it was impossible because the DROID had better hardware/android 2.0.

    He came back with, "Your phone is the only android phone, the rest are google phones." (This is when I stopped debating anything with him cause...POINTLESS)

    Totally unrelated, someone else I knew bought a mytouch and he said that it was way better than the DROID and that he could do anything mine could. He said my droid was a "wack-ass G1."

    Why is android so confusing to the mainstream/average user?

    Dude the guy that said android phones and google phones is an idiot and it sounds to me that the other people you have talked to don't understand sofware at all so when it comes to the subject of smartphones they are also idiots so I wouldn't group them with the mainstream

    The challenge is that people do not understand the difference between a phone and an operating system. Until now they have been tightly linked. If you really want them to have a better clue tell them your phone uses Linux instead of confusing them.

    Prior to the Droid the most advanced phone I had was the Rumor. So I had NO idea what I was getting in to when I got the Droid.

    My whole cell phone experience was based around the proprietary "OS" that was installed on the phone I had. I was used to being routed down a specific path of how I was going to use the phone...I would guess that most people could say the same. I think that many folks are more comfortable with a controlled user experience.

    A Droid or Nexus is a freakishly large step from a 'dumb' phone

    So when I got my Droid...I was smart enough recognize that I had a ton of potential in this phone but no know-how to get to it...so I west a searchin' and I found Droid Forum...lucky I guess.

    any way...it will be interesting to see what happens to the Android Platform as it matures...will it still be the wild wild west....or will Google attempt to tame it and control the user experience so that 'normal' people will like it.

    google is just starting to get in there with the other smartphones as far as polpulari and you have to look that most people still see a phone as a phone and really do nt care about os. I normally do not want to go deep into it with other people so not to sound like a geek. It may be a good time to end the argument about whose phone is better. Even though 99% of the time. Apple fanboy starts it, the phone that is better depends on who is buying it, and what it is used for.

    You may consider yourself to be irregular, but I'm a pretty regular guy, and I'm not confused by the Droid.
