U.S. iPhone owners happier with their phone than Pre owners
When asked what they liked and disliked the most about their phones, 45% of iPhone users said that the touch screen interface was the best feature. What did iPhone owners dislike the most? No surprise. 55% of them said they did not like AT&T's network. 47% of Pre owners also favored their device's touch screen interface, while 45% cited the short battery life as their chief dislike.

kinda interesting that a poll that makes up 240 people is newsworthy....

I can't believe that they actually waisted there time with this survey. Of course they're going to be happier with the iPhone 3G than the Palm Pre. Apple has had plenty of time to work out "Most" of the bugs out and the Pre is Palms hail mary pass to stay in buisness.

In an old keynote Apple, they said that the first gen-iPhone had over 9/10 satisfaction rates. And it's not like Palm blindly put their phone on the market. They had been keeping up with the latest technologies and latest customer needs the entire time when they were making the phone. Comparing the 1st generation iPhone to the the palm pre is as fair as comparing a phone from the 1990s to a phone from 2010. And just because the iPhone is on it's third year that doesn't mean the Pre is three years behind. And I think a lot of people are having trouble understanding that.

i cant believe they asked 200 iphone users and only 40 pre. i think it would be more fair to ask even number of people on both sides.

A survey showed that 66% of people who eat food, prefer dinner over lunch. While the remaining 33% of the people surveyed, claimed to either enjoy breakfast or nothing at all. All 3 people surveyed had a dislike for cigarettes... This is not news! Of course people love the iPhone and hate the service. Anything that promotes the damn device, the website deems it necessary to post for everyone to see. Again, change your name to iPhonearena.com so that everyone knows what type of news to expect...

Well, I mean, that's kind of funny, because everytime I see any user ratings for the iPhone, it's ranked substantially lower than a vast majority of other phones, not excluding the Pre. I agree 100% with the assertion that surveying a whopping total of 240 people is a ridiculous idea. But, I guess it makes sense, because as we all know, when surveyed person equals 1 million people, so 240 people surveyed equals 240 million people. So, that makes more sense, hopefully everyone is a bit more satisfied, now that I've explained scientist logic to you all. Trust me, I know some scientists... Through some contacts I've met here and there, they've introduced me to tons, if not a couple scientists in my life.

And what I'm trying to say in that post, is that I KNOW scientists, everything about them.

I actually like the 2nd exhibit where it asks: What do you dislike most about your iPhone 3GS and replies were majority in "ATT Network!" Bahahaha, I can't wait to see how many people switch when iPhone comes to Verizon.
