Remember our last posting? We mentioned that not only are people excited to see the iPhone 5, iPhone fanatics are also getting ready to sell iPhone 4S to get an upgrade! And why not? We’ve heard rumors about the iPhone 5 that would make any Apple fanatic drool in excitement. There were rumors about bigger screens, HD front cameras, smaller SIM card slots, smaller docks, A6 processor chips and even a 3G display! But since we know Apple loves surprises, we’re putting the rumors to rest to concentrate on the most important factor in the Apple-verse—YOU!
We all know the iPhone isn’t a perfect device. For all we know, it’s one of the most problematic devices people have. Still, Apple manages to sell iPhone units in bulk every day and continues to hold the largest part of the market. Is the iPhone really just a good iPhone? Or are Apple fanboys turning the wheels to dominate the smartphone buying scene? That, we can’t be sure of. But are YOU an Apple fanboy?

Here’s the final verdict! If you got…
3 points to 1 point: You’re a non-fanboy and probably not much of a techie person. That or you’re just not into Apple. You may be a Linux person or an Android addict or somewhere else in the tech arena but not much of an Apple geek. That could also mean that you’re not into the ‘sell iPhone for a new iPhone’ craze so you’re pretty much on the safe tech side.
6 points to 4 points: You’re an iPhone lover but not an Apple fanboy. You strike a balance between other devices and Apple products, which is good because that means you’re a diversified techie! Non-faboys like you own about 2 kinds of Apple products (2.7 on average) and more or less 2 types of mobile Apple devices (2.3 on average). Surveys also show that only 4 out of 10 non-fanboys own a Mac while 8 out of 10 them own a Windows PC. And while non-fanboys can be regarded as certified Windows lovers, they are not so keen about Androids as only one out of 5 of them owns an Android smartphone or tablet.
10 points to 7 points: Congratulations! You’re definitely an Apple fanboy! You probably own more than 3 kinds of Apple products (3.7 on average) and more than 2 Apple mobile devices (2.8 on average). Surveys show that 9 out of 10 self-proclaimed Apple fanboys own Mac products as well but are 13% less likely to own a Windows PC. Surprisingly, though, there are more Apple fanboys who own Android devices (3 out of 10 fanboys own an Android smartphone or tablet).
