Retina is just Apple's term for high pixel density, and I'm not an expert on Androids, but I'm sure many Androids have even denser screens. Plus, if you want an iPhone, you have no choice but to buy a "retina" screen.
Those people just choose to make a compromise for what they want. I personally don't like anti-glare and can deal with some fingerprints.
I do like your analogy, though. lol
