24. I Wouldn't Think It Would Be News If Android Outsold The iPhone

Isn't Android comprised of a bunch of different brands and a bunch of different phones on a bunch of different carriers? Assuming the answer is "yes," why wouldnt 50 (or however many) phones on 15 (or however many) carriers be expected to outsell 2 phones (iPhone 4, iPhone 5) on 3 carriers (ATT, Sprint, Verizon)? I don't understand the comparison. Now if you want to compare the iPhone(s) with Android phones as far as features/performance, that's a different story.

I've always wanted the iPhone. I like Apple products. I'm not a fanboy. I have never/will never camp out for a product on release day. But I've loved every iPod I've had (save for the 1st gen Shuffle). I have a MacBook Air from 2011 that I love. My sister has an iPod Touch from a couple years ago that she loves. I think their products work well out of the box and are user-friendly. Not saying other products aren't. I just know Apple product are.

I'm with US Cellular here in the midwest, and their phones have always sucked balls. This year they've finally started to get current phones when other carriers had them (rather than a year later). For instance, they got the Samsung GS3 in July and the Note 2 in October. Thought about the GS3 in the summer, but a lot of people (at least on USCC) have had to return them (up to 5 times) due to signal issues for talk/data.

USCC has started to sell off to Sprint in larger markets (Chicago, St Louis). That freaks me out. Not sure if I'm going to stay with them and get something like the Note 2 or if I'll go to Verizon for the iPhone. I've been with USCC for 9 years. Was with Verizon before that. Hated Verizon then, but I'm guessing they have better coverage now.
