    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..

    Ask Apple why they decided to use obscure patents to go against Google, when obviously Apple has copied some of Google's, and not to mention, other companies'

    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?

    During my time on the "other side of the fence", I met and dealt with a great deal of nice, helpful and motivated people from whom I learned quite of bit. This, of course, was via the XDA Forums. Every so often, an Apple enthusiast would peek in and cause a commotion. Yet, I've experienced the EXACT SAME THING now that I'm on the Apple side of the fence. There will always be people who are passionate about a particular brand or product and there will always be others who are less passionate and non-committed. It is what it is, I suppose.

    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.

    +1 Alli. I still use Apple products, and although i've given my iPhone4 to my wife (in favor of my Vivid), i never knock Apple products. The radicals within the smartphone community are the BB users. IMHO.

    I believe anyone who frequent tech forums can be considered a geek of some sort. It should be of no surprise to anyone that a segment will find a particular platform to be the best for him or her, whether it is iOS, Android, Blackberry, WebOS or any other platform. It is all subjective.

    As an Android user and one who posts on a Android site I wouldn't say they are any more "militant" than the iOS users who post here. I enjoy the benefits that both platforms have to offer.

    iPhone 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 Apple and thinks Steve Jobs was the second coming of Christ. There, fixed that for you. (All in good fun. I use both platforms.)

    I disagree very highly. I use Android and I am certainly no more of a geek than anyone else who posts on various tech sites including this one. Also, Android users are enjoying their phones just as much as you are so stop kidding yourself. As an iOS user as well I can tell you Android users definitely don't have anything to be jealous of when it comes to the locked down, none customizabilty that iOS has offer.

    This.

    I've noticed the mods at Crackberry handed out quite a few bans this past weekend to a few users who enjoyed stirring the pot. I liked my Storm2, but it was a half baked product released way too late to compete with iPhones.

    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.

    Well said, pkcable. I think the mods here at iMore and Android Central do a great job of keeping the forums friendly and a nice place where new members will want to come back to again.
