Why are Android users so militant?
Has anyone else noticed this? I've never seen a group of tech enthusiasts so militant over a product.. I happen to own a Galaxy Nexus along with my iPhone so I visit Android centric sites as well. Man alive are they some angry hateful people on that side of the fence! I don't understand the extreme emotions these people suffer from..Mobile tech addict..

Haha! Apple copied everything from Android, even the phone key pad, because Android was the first phone on the earth!
That's how Android users act. But I don't hear anyone saying that Android copied webOS for some things in Jelly Bean, right?Gimme a vector, Victor. I'm coming home. Roger, Roger. Huh?

And there are still people out there who behave that way about their Blackberries. It has nothing to do with the phone, and everything to do with the owners. It's like religious fundamentalists. You can't tell them they're wrong, because they believe, and they don't understand why you're not swept up in their zeal.

Android users are a bunch of geeks who think that their platform is the best and only way. They are also generally the group that loves windows and thinks Steve Jobs was the devil. I think they are also a little jealous of how popular and easy to use our platform is. Let them fuss and Be jealous, we're the ones enjoying our phones while they complain.

I lurk and help ppl on ac and some of them are great people but some just hate anything not android but some are understanding of a persons choice of phone it just depends on the forum, in my experience over at xda is they troll new ppl to the forums and like to cause problems and conflicts IMO ..also they think android is never at fault for anything and apple is the devil And I frequently switch between iOS and android so I am not one sided to a community

I'm one of the people who focuses completely on learning and enjoying any device that I purchase. When I had my Blackberry devices, I was all about Blackberry and the same for my Palm, Android and Apple devices. That's just the way I am and I'm certain there are others who feel the same way.

All 4 of the major platforms, have users that are of ALL types, most are pretty cool most of the time, but some are wingnuts some of the time. I don't think any one platform has a monopoly on this. The Mobile Nations moderators do a pretty good job handling things when forced to, at least that has been my expierence.

The answer is simple. "iPhone Envy".
Seriously though, I simply do not understand why there is such fanboy fever from either camp.
Both platforms have their +/-, and neither has the ability to hurt the other.
Live Long and Prosper.
