See now this is what sux about these isheep and their posts. The iphones most prolific defender posted the link to the bgr.com page with the full survey article on it. When you read the whole story not just the first paragraph you will see that the 52% of Android users that plan on switching to the iphone5 drops to 27% and it says 52% of Blackberry users. heres the link read the WHOLE thing http://www.techzone360.com/topics/techzone/articles/222709-android-os-ad-impressions-increase-mobile-ad-network.htm

The article is correct, it's the chart that's wrong. 52% of Android users are dissatisfied. This goes right in line with last weeks survey where only about 50% of android users said they wanted to stay with android. We have survey after survey with the same results and each week you guys try to discredit it.

That's why the PR chart shows 27%/11%. While BGR's own article states 52%. lol Die hard uneducated Apple fanboy, please learn to properly read.

That is a HUGE difference in reporting you caught. The BGR post completely distorted the facts. There's a big difference between the actual 27% of Android users wanting an iP5 (11% if it's only an iP4s) and 52% (27% if it's an iP4s). The poster repeatedly switched the words Blackberry and Android when citing the stats. I'm not at all surprised that half of Blackberry users are considering the iPhone.

I'd like to know the sample size on this one. BGR doesn't mention it either. Also note that only half of each OS user at most even wants to try an iPhone 5, let alone a 4s. The next iPhone will sell. I'll be shocked if it destroys Android's market share though.

So if we decide to do a study that your brain is small. 100% of PA user(s) used in this study believes so. Clearly, your brain is small. Do you have anymore ignorant ideas?

That's a mockery on your own statement... lol. Guess you weren't too bright to figure that one out... "told you.. they were going to come up with excuses. sample size.... lol... wow total denial..." My sample size? I don't need to tell you, it's 100%, so it's 100% in the study. Therefore you have a small brain. Looking like a fool now when you can't even stand by your own words.

In other words, "I couldn't come up with a logical argument after he made a fool of me, so I'm just going to make fun of his name and try to make it seem like I don't understand him"
