Are you an Apple fan? (poll results)

Are you an Apple fan? (poll results)
If you visited our website yesterday, there's a good chance that you came across our Monday poll: Are you an Apple fan? 

For some, it came across as a weird question to ask, but there is quite some context behind it that avid readers of the site will be aware of — generally speaking, Apple and its products are typically belittled by the Android community, whether because people feel the company is making too much on every iPhone, or because said iPhones supposedly aren't packing the best-of-the-best in terms of hardware. In fact, whenever we speak up for Apple, as we're bound to given the quality products coming out of its gates and the fact that it's our job to, whatever is said is often (mistakenly) taken for unjust praise. The reality is quite different, of course, as we've tried to make clear over and over again. If we were to vote in our own poll, we'd go for choice number two — we're admirers, because we believe in giving credit where credit's due.

So how did the rest of you vote? According to the numbers, 453 of voters out of 2,810, or 16.12%, are outright Apple fans. On the other end of the spectrum lie the votes of 1,232 people (or 43.84%), who take a very clear stance against the tech giant, and supposedly don't appreciate its work at all. In the middle, along with our fictitious vote, sits a body of 1,125 voters (40.04%), who aren't necessarily crazy about the company or its products, but seem to agree that its track record deserves respect.

As you can imagine judging from the first paragraph, this split hardly surprises us. Did it surprise you?

Are you an Apple fan?

Sorry for answering a little late, but I just have start reading it I am not sure if this is a joke or not. But in case you were new or whatever, the poll has ended and that is you can't vote (no body can vote) after the poll ends. However, there is new polls on phonearena.

yeah I wouldn't call them innovators as much as they are trend setters in my eyes and they set a few that have really evolved the market and heated competition in the last decade!

I'm with you @AmitMajumder... Credit where it is due!!! Apple changed the smartphone scene at their start... And has kept most of their consumers with it's hype. I've changed from an Apple fan to leaning more towards Samsung's innovations. O.o

I can never be a so dedicated fan of specific company that I go on and fight on the internet forums for that company. What good does it do to me?? I am always supporting the "Credit where credit's due" mindset.

i wouldnt consider myself a fan, cuz there was a time when i was completely sure of ditching every piece of Apple tech i had at home (and that's a lot of tech) but lately they seem to be doing the right thing, from the larger iPhone to streaming music service and widen color options for their products

Yeah, they've goofed a few times but the hate they're getting is unjustified nowadays. Tim Cook imo has been making a lot of the right calls for the company, Android fanboys should recognize.

This is amusing to say the least! After all the people that got banned or reported for calling Apple Fans as Fans, this is an official poll now being carried out by PA :) Careful now PA...you may gert reported and then banned ;)

Choice no.2 seems about right. The hardcore fans of Apple make no sense, how can you be so die hard of something that is recognized by how much profit it's made from your money? That means so many things from it's products and it's R&D, makes no sense. But then personally I'm no fan of any tech company, bar Google cuz I don't really care that they are making money by making my Google Now and other internet adventurers a better experience for me for free. But I do love Apples's new Force Touch on the Macs and that is gunna be insane on a phone

I'm not a fan of any particular company and I'm pretty much an anti-fan of Apple.

Credit where credit is due. Not a fan of some of Apple's business practices, but the company is getting better under Tim Cook, so this may change soon. iOS has been growing on me.

Credit where credit's due. I don't see any benefits of being a fan of any manufacturer
