No, not confused about what a consumer product is, just Apple fans claiming the iOS is the best due to number sold when they have major marketshare in a segment (e.g. iPad) and then turning around and saying Android is NOT the best when they have the major marketshare in a different segment (e.g. smartphones). If you read the post I was commenting on that would have been evident.
If you read an earlier comment I made, you would have also noted that I clarified that for all intents and purposes, when discussing "smartphones" specifically, iPhone = iOS. If there is another smartphone that uses iOS then, yes, the comparison between iPhone and Android in the area of smartphones would be incompatible.
