I don't own a Hox (still rocking my Evo smh) but the title of this thread caught my attention. I think this guy has a really valid point. I'm not an Apple fan by far, but there is a simplicity to Apple products that makes people feel empowered, like geniuses.
To many, lack of options equates to ease of use and consistency. There's a million Android phones to pick from, but ONE iPhone. iTunes syncs music for you, requiring less manual control. The majority of people don't care about being able to change root files, overclock, or customize OoM values. They want the bragging rights to say I'm smart because I connected all the devices I'm my home with an airport.
I love my Evo, but only because devs have spent countless hours enhancing what HTC said was finished. Ever since I rooted my HTC Hero years back, I hated being on stock, but it sucks to feel like I have to invest time to make it do what I need it to. All of my non tech friends hate Android, because they aren't savvy enough, nor have the time to learn, to get all the potential out of it.
To quote those people, "I just want a phone that works". And the iPhone makes them feel like they have the power.
Sorry for rant. Proceed as normal
