I wouldn't expect much from a guy who has a DBZ avatar, a show filled with men screaming like they are about to take a dump. At least they can produce Android phones.

The_Miz you know what DBZ is & guess what it's just as fake as your wrestling. lol But I know you would know fantasy better than anyone. lol That is so funny but since we are talking fantasy I bet Goku would kill The_Miz in a fight though. You know there is no dispute! lol

Wow coming from you this is hilarious. The Miz, the lame ass MTV reality TV star turned wrestler. Yes I don't think ANYONE should be talking about avatars here. Tho it would be even more amusing if you still had the half naked pic up, just that much better.

Apple users donate more because they need to. Their conscience can't take the crap on how these iPhones are made back in China. How a lot of people are attempting to commit suicide because of the work load and stress at work.

Study finds Apple users donate larger amounts. Study finds Andriod users have higher IQ. Study finds Android users eat more bananas. Study finds Apple users take a longer dump. I LOVE THESE STUDYZ!1!!

MichaelHeller is by far the best author on this site and ranks among the top in his profession. Every article I read of his is logic based allowing the reader to decide for himself or herself what to do with the information given. Phonearena cannot be held responsible for the outcome of the study done simply because the study itself is providing generic but factual numbers from a independent party not in any way related to phonearena. Yes phonearena does report on a lot of iphone stories and this is especially true this week with the recent passing of Steve Jobs and the iPhone4S announcement but for each article I read about Apple there is at least one article about Android. To the users on here attacking Michael and other users you simply need to understand that you're getting riled up over peices of plastic and metal and you need to control your urge to be ignorant and shameless.

Couldn't agree more! Always very enjoyable & informative for sure! No one is attacking anyone, also please don't go as far as saying that other people are ignorant & shameless because you are just doing the same. I had a disagreement with him we handled it like 2 grownups. Please do the same without the name calling! Thank you.

Have they put into consideration that there are more android devices out there than iPhones? obviously with a smaller amount per dollar donated you're going to get a higher percentage. Not saying that it's a bad thing people donate to good causes, I just hate how people think they deserve recognition for doing something morally right.

Great article, Michael! However, as you mentioned in your article, the donations could be because of higher income ipad and iphone owners recieve compared to their android counterparts. I think it would be more relevant to show the average donation in relation to their income.

That actually makes a lot of sense considering Apple users donate hundreds of dollars every single year for the new and improved iPhone. Seriously though, unless we are checking these *facts* and not just going by what these people are telling us then this really doesn't mean anything. I'm an Android user and I donate about 300 dollars a year to various orginizations. I said it so therfore it is true.
