    my ipod touch came with a terrible quick start guide. My Droid X came with a quick start guide. It took me a day or so to get comfortable with Android since it was my first smartphone.

    Its not about being smarter or dumber. Its preference. Some prefer a cell phone that does what is says it will do and that's its it. I would have my mom get that one. Others prefer the one that they chose and the one that changes for them and with them. That's the one I suggest for my friends that want to step just outside the box. We have all read some pretty unbiased, smart posts from iphone owners and some bad ones from our own community. Shoot we even fight amongst our selves from Razor to Resound to Gnex. Let bygones be bygones. Nexus is best of course... for me. Happy holidays Droid forums.

    generally speaking, android owners are more tech savvy then iphone owners. same way that windows is for everyone, linux isn't. you've got to have some pc knowledge to use linux.

    The type of phone, phone OS, computer or computer OS that a person uses has no correlation to intelligence. Some very intelligent people have more important things to do than use every feature of a device if they have no need for that feature or mod the device or OS for no reason to them. Just because someone roots an Android device, it does not automatically make them more intelligent than someone who does not or uses an iPhone or just a simple phone. If someone needs to show their intelligence by bragging that they mod something just for no particular reason then perhaps they are not quite as intelligent as they think they are. Some people need to impress their friends by owning an iPhone. Others have to impress their friends by showing that they rooted and ROMed their Android phone. If they were truly intelligent they would not have to prove it in those ways. Do you think that Einstein would have modded his phone if they existed back then? I doubt it. He had much more important things to accomplish.

    Don't worry. Sooner or later there will be Galaxy Nexus for Dummies and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Galaxy Nexus books. Every smartphone gets one.

    I wouldn't think it would be too much trouble to put a link to a user manual in the browser similar to what the iPhone has. The majority of the time it isn't needed but sometimes it comes in handy.

    Ill admit, the people who are not as tech saavy seem to have harder time becoming acquainted to Android due to the amount of features. Honestly, I reccomend just taking time and playing around. That's what I did and found a lot of nifty features. Also, great websites like Droid Forums, and Android Central have helped me alot. The iPhone is also more universally popular than the Nexus. (Its been out alot longer, and its a unified platform).

    By the way, Apple's strategy for their IPhone are to make them so the user cannot mess them up. They are made for people who don't want to modify anything and just want it to work.

    Of course it has nothing to do with intelligence in general however perhaps technical intelligence. I've met some very smart people on these forums.
