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.

I used to think that iPhone is just a toy before I got it. Now I realize that I was wrong: iPhone is a kind of a pocket assistant for me
I use task planners, shopping lists, GPS, social networks, read books, watch Youtube videos, play games, ... and do lots of other things.
And needless to say, I like its design and interface as it is very easy to use.

Apple doesn't do everything right but what it does do is create a cohesive interface and high quality user experience plus they do a great job packaging everything together into a pretty product.

When I try to setup Androids, there's always a learning curve as to where configuration settings are between HTC, Samsung, Motorola, Google, and other companies' products.

I have no affection towards phones. They are just necessary things, like TV or internet. I tend to get iphone just because the game developers tend to make exclusive iphone games.

That's the only reason.

i like the appstore and the endless stream of new games.

without the Appstore, i'd choose an android device any day.

Noise brings so many things, make my tingling skin freeze.
