Apart from the iSheep part, he's right. Early adapters are going to be people who are Apple enthusiasts and are probably going to be happier than folks who are getting it out of general desire for the product. iHateCrapple, I'm interested in seeing what kind of phone you carry...And please don't say Android because if you're taking the time to diss Apple, but using a phone by Google then you are a bigger idiot that most...

Yep all the Apple fanboys got it when it 1st came out, and they're gonna say they are happy with it even though they might not be. That's fanboyism for you. All the anther non-fanboys are going to tell the truth, and they're not so satisfied.

But that's with anyone that's excited about anything. Apple doesn't have a following for no reason. Apple has a pretty great track record of not putting out shitty phones. Seriously, name a company that has done the same...

This is gonna be fun... Yes, I do carry an Android phone, Droid 2 to be exact. But I also carry a BlackBerry Storm 2 as my personal phone. So please explain to me why i'm an idiot. Google and Apple are two completely different companies and conduct business in different ways. And no, i'm not a Google fanboy, read through some of my older posts and you'll see that I diss both Google and Microsoft when a reason presents itself. There's just a lot more Apple-related articles on phonearena.

The early adopters are happier because they are more likely to be Apple faithful that will love, support, and defend any porduct Apple produces. The later adopters are less satisifed because all they heard was that this was a magical and revolutionary product and due to the timing all they hear about now is what is coming just around the corner. The same thing happened with my phone on a smaller scale. I got the Droid Eris long ago (All the way back in February if you can believe that. Yes, I've held onto the same phone for at least 8 months!) A coworker just got one not ttoo long ago because he liked mine (rooted & the works) but he's having buyer's remorse at hearing about the new phones coming out soon. People who buy just before new products are released are probably always high up on the list of less satisfied customers.
