Why do Apple products get hate for each and every of their very few, tiny misgivings?

I mean, for example, when the Nexus 4 came out with only 8 and 16 Gigabytes of storage, not too many people were raving about this relatively small amount of storage. But, for example, if only a 16 GB variant of an iPhone were to be released, there would be an uproar like no other. Is it just Apple's high standards? Or is there something else I'm missing?
