The reality is many people don't want choice. They prefer to be told what to do, and how to do it. I mean hell, we re-elected Obama didn't we?
Oh, don't be silly.
I happen to have an iPhone (work-related, so not the result of an conscious comparison effort on my part). I'm pretty happy with it. This is not a matter of "I prefer to be told what to do", it is a matter of "it does everything that I actually want it to do". Thus the question of which is better doesn't really impinge itself on my consciousness. If both models do all I need, why would I change?
If I do have to buy my own smartphone one day, I'll likely look at usability (=UI design) and price first of all.
's response is more thoughtful, and thus nearer the mark, than your knee-jerk reaction.
