C'mon
Not my mom, nor my nephew, not my grandpa, not my neighbor and neither my colleagues at work.
From all the people i know there's barely two or three that wants to root their phones because they read what can achieve, but none had do it because of fear, even if i said them that its not that hard.

Seriously, the majority of people dont give a shit about what they can do, but if that phone have that app that everybody else use. We, who discuss about tech related news do care, but we are a minority. That's why the jailbreak community is dying, that's why android OEM are barely interesting in release their code to those who want to really change things. We are simply a rounding number.

        Also I don't think many people buy androids to say they are special or tech savvy.. it's more iPhone users think they are all up with the tech..but people who buy androids think what can I do with this phone. They don't just get a 1000 pound iPhone and send emails texts make phones calls and goo ooo my feature for 1 grand is a emoji machine.. can you honestly tell me that most iPhone users do anything else apart from what I've stated.. o and maybe use Facebook and Twitter..

Also it refers to it being able to navigate and use computer programs to do such task so such as rooting a phone regardless of following instructions.. is probably a lot more than the typical iPhone user could do.. try do research on big words before you use and don't seem to have a clue what your talking about...

The downside imo of oled's is how the ramp the contrast through the roof.. lucky you can adjust this on later samsung intern of how much colour it's pushing. Though most people seem to think higher contrast looks better.. as if it's tricking the eye a bit like turning up music loud and people seem to think it sounds better..

                          Over 90% of people who buy iPhones do it for the brand name.. and get a case to show the apple logo on the back it's that bad..
                          They are to thick to know anything about security and think a iPhone will protect all there information.. without doing anything
                          I bet 99% of them aren't even aware or have heard of greykey.
                          People who buy android are more lightly to install stuff like anti virus software or be people who monitor firewall activity and even understand what a vpn is and does. Rather than just assuming that because it runs on a different OS it can't get infected. When the iPhone 8 first can out it was slower than the iPhone 7 in real life usage due to lack of optimization..
                          Yet you believe they are way ahead on security..When they optimization is poor.... need I go on...

                                Is based on the people surround you?

                                Cause i can say that the majority of proffesionals use idevices just based on all the accesories you can find for iOS. But i know that its just a market decision.

                                    People seem to be very concerned about having the greatest speed, even though they're not likely ever coming close to needing it.

                                      A tech savvy person, like me, knows how to use an Android phone with all Google services like cloud services, keyboards, email and such disabled. That is why tech savvy people do choose Android, because you can make it work like you want it to work, not like one CEO wants you to use a phone.

                                        Sometime the third-party app (browser) play a big role to the internet speed.
