Why do Android fans hate the iPhone so much?

Why do Android users seem to hate the iPhone so much?
In my experience, people with iPhones aren't really aware of Android (beyond the big Samsung phones), and couldn't care less either way :p
But anyway, what difference does it make? Why do Android users care if the iPhone sells 35 units or 35 million?

I totally agree. It is absolutely alien to me. Both ways, obviously.
I argue now and again - but that is about cherrypicking 'perceived' weaknesses etc... Otherwise? Who cares who buys what and why?
They all want our money; they ALL sold our stuff to the NSA, they will all drop support when and how it suits them!
This misplaced loyalty is absoutely counter productive. Not to mention sad.

I'm tired of criticising phone x, and always having to amend: "I'm not an owner of phone y or z"!?!!!

What does it matter?

Funnily, iSheep etc (sect-like etc) is thrown around a lot. I have never ever been trolled on Twitter or elsewhere by bitter little iFans. But loads and loads by Android and WP fans.
Also: the real life people I know who use iPhones, have no idea who Apple are. They have no idea that Android means Google. THEY DON'T care!
Nor do most Android users I know care, tbh. But there are vocal bloggers and such. And with the 2000 Android phones and apps and updates Google gives them loads to talk about.
They are people who need weather widgets cause their basement cubicles have no windows :p

I reckon it's the absence of widgets. Android users are loners who don't know anybody. They do not need a phone, but widgets makes their device look busy. Also: fake call apps in part 2!

Plus of course: poverty. Can't afford Macs. So they hate on the iPhone.


:p
