i would answer Symbian. Because iPhone is not really a smartphone and Android is a spyware.

Maybe English isn't their first language.

I believe you can do a lil more out of the box of a android phone than you can an i phone. Yes Apple does have the bigger app store but there is still restrictions that you must jailbreak the phone to in joy. as for the ease of use, i think it depends on the individual themselves. I do agree when many have said that anyone will buy the iphone simply because its the iphone. Its the latest trend that proves to those who care you have some kind of money. Very few people know or care about the full functionality of their phones. If you go down the line of specs yes android has it locked but i also think the smooth interface of the iphone kills that. I've used apple before and it seems like unless your in the "Apple Eco-System" of products, The Iphone actually does the same if not less than most of its competition. If i had to make one choice only it would be android.

I was in New York a few years ago and you have to have balls of steel to drive in that city on Saturday night. Otherwise who cares what New York thinks?

NYC is all about fashion and style - it is about fitting in to society. So, no surprise that New Yorkahs love iphone - good for them, they can keep their i(nferior)phones.

this article just proves more on what kind of people are on here then about phones themselves

so an article saying new yorkers prefer the iphone, first its not concrete and doesnt mean its true you cant speak for a whole city, second does it matter or effect you in any way what others prefer to have

all the comments are either slating iphones and promoting android as amazing (as usual on here) or attacking new yorkers themselves as stupid etc

dont you think at this point you should find something else to pin your life on if you get so defensive and annoyed by a flimsy article

This comment section is full of win. NYC in one densely populated area, and there are a lot of iPhone users here but there are just as many Android users, only difference is iPhone users tend to be a bit on the dumb side as they only know that this phone is popular and mainly parrot off crap told to them. Although I know so many Android users and they actually know about their phone and it varies, from professionals to regular jocks.

Thing with Android users they actually find out about their phone prior to purchase, iPhone not so much. It's the same with all Apple products since Apple became popular, these idiots think that an iPod and an MP3 player are two different things. NYC home of the craziest things you can think of. Don't judge New Yorkers as all obnoxious and full of themselves, because in every city you can find people just like that, in fact some of them are posting right here in this comment section xD.

This is a bad test, poll or otherwise failure of getting any worthwhile information. Fun to read comments though, can find out who is green with envy because of lack there of though.

NYC is also a high target for iPhone theft.
