Android from google practically stole everything it has from iPhone and though i wont deny it is a solid OS and the phones are quite nice, I will always choose Iphone until they give me a good enough reason not to. Im grandfathered into unlimited data from AT&T and i abuse the hell out of it. Iphones may not be popular here but certainly have made a huge impact on the mobile phone market.

The iPhone started the smart phone era yes, but they are ALWAYS behind the times. Look how long it took them to get 4G added when the droids had so many models with it. Their OS still doesn't support widgets of any sort. Etc.

I dont think you can say they are always behind the times. First off they led the movement towards touch centric phones and have a much longer and more thurough R&D cycle than any other phone on the market and it has be extremely successful as result. They may have taken the longest to get to 4G but that was mainly due to the extreme amounts of data consumption that they would be inflicting on those relatively new and feeble networks. 4G is barely nationwide and putting millions of data heavy iphone users on it before it was able to manage it would have been horrible PR for both Apple and all the carriers.

Apple started out way ahead but they are always behind now. They have a brilliant marketing strategy, I'll give them that. Make everyone wait FOREVER for a new model phone to come out, have people camping and standing in line all night waiting for the store to open just to get the same phone they have with a slightly better screen/processor/camera/siri. This is an amazing feat. I had turn by turn navigation on my Droid phone two years before iPhone got it. True multitasking is what makes the droid superior. Jelly Bean has a superior Siri type voice system. I just don't have any desire to wait in line for a phone that is already outdated. iPhone is more user friendly, true, because my girlfriend's 5 year old has an iPod Touch and has no problems using it. I'd doubt she could navigate my S3 as easily. I just got fed up with Apple and their proprietary bologna. iTunes is ridiculous also. Just my two cents...
