PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Does Android skew towards a younger demographic? The numbers might surprise you. According to comScore, 52.4% of all Android users are aged 35 years or older. That is five percentage points higher than the iPhone. Near 55% Android tablets users are also older than 35." How is this surprising? Younger people tend to be more brand-conscious, and there's no denying that the iPhone is still perceived as cooler than Android phones. Also note that the cited figures are for the US, Apple's strong home market. I think the figures will look very different for Europe.

...by the end of each thread you will have heard every reason why this is the reason android is better than xxx.

Each of the reasons will contradict each other, as well the previous thread that came to the same multiple conclusions.

My observation of Android phones the last few years? Everyone loves the new one they just got, and then gets another new one every 6 months that "works better" since the last one didn't. They reenter everything, reload it, rinse, and repeat.

I see lots of buyer remorse on android, and when someone figures out the tech and what they expect it to do in their life they migrate towards iOS. People with iPhones use them for everything practically all day for 2+ years then upgrade when their contract allows.

But that's just here in the states. We 'get' Apple because we are Apple, they represenet the best US company going right now. We have apple stores everywhere and 'subsidies' as you call them (we call them contracts and they aren't well liked).
