Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

It could explain the high marks the iPhone always gets for user satisfactions and the much lower scores for Android.

Use an iPhone, buy a newer model, synch back your settings/apps and you instantly know how to use it and everything is there. There is no learning curve when upgrading to a new model. Besides the fun/usefulness is in the 3rd party apps. iOS gets nicely out of the way. The Android fans here make it sound like people are using the OS itself all day or keep staring at the home screen. Normal users launch their favorite apps.

Android keeps changing, manufacturers keep adding their own UIs. Switching either OS, model or brand and it's a new and confusing experience.

Apple adds features to each iOS release, but the basics remain the same. You are not forced to first master these changes to be able to use your device. They do the same with OS X.

Looking at usage statistics iPhone users are much more active, while Android users aren't and kind of seem so lost that they don't even bother figuring out how it all works.
