    I'm laughing, hard at this :laugh:
    Someone wanna wake up those poor apple sheep up to the real world? Just LOL. I don't usually hate on apple too...I'm betting they're the apple fan(girls/boys) that believe mac and iPhones are the only choice in a world where there are choices.

    You really dont have to know much about tech to see that no iPhone has 4G...
    Its called an iPhone 4 for a reason.

    This just shows the average iPhone user.
    They don't know how many better Android phones there are, and they just get whatever the newest iPhone is.

    They don't even look at the specs. They just assume the newest iPhone has everything. In that case, 4G.

    Lemme guess. When the iPhone 5 releases, how many idiots go showing off there, "5G?"

    I'd like to see what percent of the 29% of Android users that indicate that they already have 4G actually have 4G. Ignorance isn't unique to any one smartphone platform despite what the Android fanboys like to claim. Android enthusiasts that frequent discussion forums make up a tiny fraction of the Android market share despite what those enthusiasts seem to think. The majority of any smartphone's user base is average consumers who know little about their devices.

    I mean, my father-in-law has a Droid X. He has no clue how to use it. He can barely make calls and text. Don't assume that all Android users are tech geniuses.

    So 34% represents the average iPhone user?

    Better is always highly subjective no matter what the topic. It's no different with smartphones. Never assume that your preferences are universal. Your opinion that Android is better doesn't mean that the next person shares the opinion. That should be pretty obvious from looking at the overall smartphone market.

    No. It shows that most iPhone users don't know much at all about phones.

    And this years high end Android phones are better.
    Whether there better for you is a different story. In terms of specs, they are better phones.

    While I think takeshi does make some valid points, DroidXDoes4G really makes THE point. Apple (and their rabid user base) seems to think that adding a little more chrome, glass, an updated iTunes icon and a micron thinner makes the iPhone more amazing.

    They don't think it makes it makes it more amazing.

    another thing to mention is that 1/3 of android users think they have 4G when less then 5% actually have a 4g device.

    so it doesn't matter what platform you look at .....there are alot of people that are clueless about their phones and network capabilities.

    Know what, I'm glad that many Android users think they have a 4G phone..Shows not all Android users are techies...lol. Despite how some ppl seem to think only techies want or like Android.

    I thought the iPhone 4 was called iPhone 4G just going by previous models. That was when it was released tho, not now and not thinking it had 4G speeds.

    Ppl thinking that now just need to get educated on it, thats all.

    i like how the title of this thread conveniently leaves out the 28% of android users who think they have 4G. iPhone users arent the only fools, trust me haha

    Specs are pretty irrelevant. No one cares about phone specs except people on forums like these, and those people represent nowhere even near 5% of total users.

    This study just shows what everyone should (but oddly doesn't) already know: that most smartphone users (Android included) are clueless about what they're buying.

    and 29% of Android users > %34 of iphone users...I am not sure why some of you laughed at the iphone users. People should laugh at the %24 BB users. RIMM are so behind in the smartphone business, and BB users still think they are GOD

    ^The thing is some of the Android users probably did have a 4G phone and knew it tho. I dont think that Android number is that high.

    Thats the point.
    A good number of Android users DO have 4G. I have seen more people with EVO's than any other phone around.
    No iPhone has 4G, so its showing that they believe they have it.
    And if I am not mistaken, no BB has 4G either.

    Id say 10% of Android users think they have 4G.

    haha, i mean i can throw out a random number too. I'd say of those 29%, 28% don't have 4G (see, doesn't really work does it?). The truth of the matter is Android users who don't have 4G probably think they do just as much as iPhone users do.

    This study was done to show that people have no idea what they're buying, but it was conveniently spun by the posters hear to mean that Android users are smarter then users of other platforms. The logical fallacies with that should be obvious (but unfortunately it's not).

    Gotta love the android fanboyism in here.

    "34% of iphone owners? Those idiots!"
    "29% of Android owners? Oh those people are the ones with 4g phones"

    Wake up people. This isn't supposed to be an anti-apple story, its supposed to show that the average, non tech savvy consumer doesn't really know what 4g is. And with good reason, because "4g" has become all but a marketing term, which is why I am glad Verizon always advertises it as "4g LTE".
