Why you like iPhone?

Because of the smart outlook, the powerful function? Or just because many others use it?
I like it for its idea. It always has new ideas that we never think about but we really like
and need. App Store for instance, this is a new world which detonated the app market.

The fact that you get a product which you know will last 2 years of a contract. When you buy a Samsung, you are desperate for an update at the end of a 24 month contract. With an iPhone, you are still perfectly comfortable with your device's capabilities at the end of the 2 years. I have the iPhone 4 at the moment and am due for an upgrade in a few months, but could easily use this phone for another year or so yet!

I prefer apple handheld devices over competing products solely for the apps, and slightly because of the customization options (there's like unlimited cases and designnyour own cases, more cases than any other phone on the market)
Also I guess a small part is ease of access.. The little short cuts and stuff ..it's so easy to use..and it's basically the only phone I can actually type on fast, I'm so slow on blackberry but I'm speeding Gonzales on iPhone. But it's mainly then apps.. 85% apps, 5% cases and other products like Bluetooth keyboards etc, 5% easy use, 5% may be social pressure to jizz over apple like the rest of society.

With my MacBook though i don't use apps, so for that it's probably 60% social pressure/style, and 40% easy to use. (the light up keys are magical, the gestures on touchpad are also brilliant..) it's just all the little things built to help you out and make the price justify-able.

Well I don't have an iPod, but the number of the quality apps, the easy to use UI and the overall satisfaction level I have with it just makes me wanna buy an iPhone

Good camera, good apps, easy and compatible...

And for me

iPhone > Android > Windows Phone > Dumb Phone

I work with them all.

Do love my iphone as it has everything i want on it. Dont get me wrong i love my ipod touch (64 gig) but i have to install fewer items on my 16 gb iphone.

But its so handy having a device with me all the time which...

a) Is my phone
b) can use the map feature if i get lost somewhere or need directions
c) can play soooo many great apps
d) can read books on it
e) can read graphic novels on it
f) listen to podcasts
g) listen to music
h) watch videos

I managed to pick up an iphone second hand as i didnt want to have a huge crazy monthly contract, i know some friends they pay 35 a month (55) which seems crazy. I've got a low contract as i dont tend to use my phone that much (Just in case i break down in my car or contact friends at the weekend). So i pay 20 a month inc internet which isnt bad

But the device is still a dream, the ability to do so much, i have a few emulators on it which still amazes me, if you told me as a kid i could have this small handheld device with 1000's of games on it i would be amazed and i still am !

I'm not an Apple addict as in i dont have to have the latest version, quite happy to be one or two models behind.

Because it is well built, reliable and simple to use. Although I could use at least some customization...

I like iOS for its games and reliability.

Everything else is Android. Customization <3 I also don't really see the difference between the apps, since they are pretty much the same. The only reason I use a device is for videos, showing off customizations, internet (unlimited data FTW. I can use as much data I want without Verizon slowing my connection :P), email, texting, emulators, Minecraft, and stuff like that.

However, iOS beats Android in games department, although Android is catching up :P

That's what jailbreaking is for
