    Please vote on this poll and lol if necessary.
    Let's see how accurate this study is...

    For those of you who didn't get it, this is a joke.

    So 1/3 of Iphone owners are idiots. Not a real surprising stat.

    Comparing the accuracy of a general population study with one on a iPhone forum isn't going to give you great results. 99% of the idiots who think they have 4G aren't going to care enough to be members here.

    Which G are we talking about? 4 Generation iPhone? it is....

    no point in polling unless it is absolutely clear what we are voting for

    Reply deleted because apparently no one understands my logic.

    Most people on MR know that it isn't 4G ... but then again, that's the small majority of iPhone users.

    The problem is people getting confused with "iPhone 4"
    Instead, I end up hearing a lot about "Hey , is that the new iPhone four-geee?!"

    6G? Mine is 8G, just in case anyone is wondering I skipped 7G because it was too slow for my liking.

    This issue goes back to the original iPods. Apple referred to iPods by generation eg: Fourth Generation. People began to shorten that to 2G, 3G, 4G, etc. When the iPhone 3G was released, the 3G actually stood for 3G connectivity not a specification of generation so once Apple released the iPhone 4 people quickly got confused and referred to it as 4G.

    This just proves that those marketing terms are meaningless because many don't know what they really stand for.

    How is 8G? I heard the download speeds are pretty average, only 3-4 Tbps, and the upload speeds are even worse maxing out at only 1 Tbps :(

    You see, 1Ebps is nice, but when you need to do real Internet browsing I find that my 25G 10Ybps connection is waaay better...
    :p

    Apple doesn't specifically use 2G, 3G, 4G etc. but it is a common shortened version for 2nd Generation, 3rd Generation, 4th Generation etc.. You can see it being used on Apples urls for support page on identifying iPods.

    So are we talking real 4g, or what AT&T defines as 4g?

    Well this is a pretty bad way to test the accuracy of the test. You're asking people who know tech better than the average consumer, so obviously there will be more people denying that the iPhone is 4G.
    Go around the streets of USA and ask the same question, come back with some stats, and then we can talk about accuracy.

    I voted yes precisely because this is a stupid poll. I think OP knows it's not serious though. I'm pretty sure there are just as many people using Android, BB, and WP7 who don't know if their phones are 4G (and probably don't know what 4G even is)

    EDIT: For the record I know there is no 4G iPhone

    Of course it's not serious, lol. I'm just wondering how many people on a tech-intelligent forum don't know what they're buying.
