Why? Those people have their reasons. From those who don't agree that Apple should be taking as large a cut from sales in terms of profits, through those who simply don't dig the closed nature of the iOS operating system, down to the specs nerds that feel that Apple is using inferior hardware compared to its competitors. At the same time, however, the Apple loyalists are plenty, and they vote their mind every time a new iGadget comes on by camping outside of Apple Stores and with their wallets.
It's an interesting love/hate dynamic, and one that deserves its own dedicated piece exploring the causes, but for today we'll settle for a real simple poll: Are YOU an Apple fan? Let us know by voting your mind, and then consider speaking your mind in the comments below.
Are you an Apple fan?
Credit where credit's due — I'm an admirer, but not necessarily a fan

80 something % of world population owns an android phone. What does PA expect from this poll? So majority of PA users like android and probably half of them hate anything Apple. I see no logic behind this kind of poll. Why dont you ask something that most of us DONT KNOW?

My reason was bang for buck, I rather buy the S6 edge for the same price since it offers android + better design, camera and battery. The iPhone is a ripoff for the price. They make huge profits off the iPhones because of huge margins. Edit : I don't hate Apple. The iPhone 6 is a great device. I'm just saying that a 350 euro price tag would be more fair. (S6 and S6 edge are also overpriced because of the memory scam which Apple also applies).

My reason was similar for getting the S6. When I bought the S6 international version 32GB, it was almost $300 cheaper then the Iphone 6 64GB. If only Iphone 6 has a 32GB version, I would probably buy an Iphone. Andriod is nice and all but the app market sucks. Even with all of our specs and stuff, most games and apps still run smoother on the Iphone.

Same on the s6 edge being the best for the cash, on a small note to help you, Samsung adds ufs 2.0 over Apple using cheap parts, also sd card can not be added as it does not work with ufs 2.0 as sd card reader damage the bandwidth of the HD and why Apple always had faster speeds on that before the s6 edge. I.e. Samsun is not doing a memory scam, just like to offer a phone that will not lag after 3 months of using it like all Samsung phone before it

As you can see by the numerous replies to this post, the comment about people buying Android phones because they can't afford iPhones is completely bogus. It is the main reason why I hate Apple fanatics: pretentiousness. Apple fanatics try to pretend that they are rich and all Android users are poor. I paid outright for a brand new Galaxy Note 4 on the day it launched. That was $700. I bought it because, unlike the iPhone 6 Plus, the Note 4 does what I need it to do and then some. Like others have stated, it is about getting more bang for your buck, not pretending that you are somehow better than everyone else. If the iPhone was a halfway decent product that was a little cheaper and didn't come with Apple's baggage (locked in ecosystem, stupid fans), I would maybe considering buying it. However, there are a ton of Android phones that are way better than the iPhone at half the price.

Not really. iPhone is a good (yes apple fanboys not great) product, no argument on that but their pricing vs. technology used and some of the phone's limited features makes majority of the planet's population got turned off to buy it.
