Google search on iPhone defaults to classic results

in iPhone edited January 2014
I'm a pretty experienced iPhone user (got it the day they came out), but I'm really frustrated.

Safari search (set to Google) defaults to Google's classic search results (NOT iPhone optimized).

When I go to I can get the optimized results.

When I go to at the bottom it shows:


View Google in: Mobile

Yet it still defaults to Classic from the search bar in Safari.

I have tried when logged in and logged out. I have tried switching to Classic (in and back to Mobile. Nothing works.

Anyone have this problem? How can I fix it?

Any help or advice appreciated.

    Yes, I see the same thing. I guess I didn't think it was a problem because I didn't know about the optimized results. \

    yeah i was pretty disappointed that apple did not do anything about their built-in googler in safari, but obviously as an alternative you can set a bookmark on your home page, or do what i did, and just use the yahoo as the search engine and it gives you back optimized results. its not bad or anything, i just prefer google, but yahoo's search works just fine and is formatted for the iphone.
