Are Android users really more loyal than iPhone users?

Jonny Evans

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    Loyal to what? Most don’t know that they have a phone made by one company and the data stealing software is made by another company. Just like most people didn’t understand that their crappy hardware was running crash o matic windows.

    This is one of those statistical sleights of hand. Far fewer Android users can afford to switch to iPhone, than vice-versa. Many Android users aren’t so much loyal as stuck.
    Now before you accuse me of classism, let me say that I sympathize with the Android users. I wouldn’t have an iPhone if it wasn’t for more wealthy family members helping out, otherwise I’d be using an Android phone as well. Reluctantly, though, as I fear Google’s invasiveness more than I fear Apple’s (and can’t say that I “trust” either).
    Nor would I deny that some people, perhaps many, actually prefer Android. I might too, but I’ve never used Android so can’t really comment. And then there’s the “stickiness” factor. Just sayin’ that this is a meaningless statistic.
    There are lots of things in life toward which one could be loyal. I don’t think tech should be one of them. What kind of loyalty have they shown _us_, after all?
