Our friends at The Loop found a pretty interesting survey that finds 34 percent of all iPhone owners think their phones have 4G. Of course, the actual number of people with 4G iPhones is zero percent.
I'd say something snarky about people being dumb, but given how many people have iPhones, the alphabet soup of tech specs is simply more than most people could be bothered to learn. They just want a smartphone that works well. It's easy to forget that in the gadget trenches sometimes.
