The fragmentation argument for Android really is invalid. It’s sad when Google’s 2yr old OS can keep up with Apple’s latest in terms of features etc.

Android synced far easier and more intuitively to my Windows laptop and several internet services (Dropbox, Twitter, Facebook, SoundCloud, Gmail, Chrome, Skype) than my iPad has.

It’s funny how you call Android phones outdated when the latest Android phones have quad core processors, larger 1280×720 HD resolution screens, bigger batteries and 4G (in countries that support it). iPhones are still stuck on measily 3.5″ screens at 960×540 and lack widgets, live wallpapers and until not too long ago they didn’t even have the notification bar.

Not to mention the lack of a physical back and menu key, it makes navigating iOS more cumbersome than Android any day of the week, the lack of widgets also makes the constant ‘app switching’ on iOS feel outdated and unnecessary.

The delays in rolling out the latest Google OS is entirely down to individual phone manufacturers and phone carriers not Google. The Galaxy S2 received it’s update to Android 4.04 about 3-4 months after the first ICS 4.0 phone was released which is acceptable. Gingerbread is still an extremely useable and fast mobile OS anyway.

7% isn’t ideal but again Google aren’t at fault it’s outwith their hands.

I have a third gen iPad on 5.11 and multiple times apps have force closed on me. Meanwhile I’ve only had a handful of problems with my Android 2.3 Galaxy S2 for the 14 months I owned it and zero problems with my Android 4.04 Galaxy S3 in the month and a half I’ve had it.

“Why do you think all the best apps are on the iPhone”
Considering ‘best apps’ is subjective and will depend on the category and requirements of the user you should just quit spouting nonsense now. There are thousands of high quality apps available on both iOS and Android for almost every purpose you could think of.

That would be entertaining to watch!

I would love to know other’s thoughts.

But, I think Apple really shines in learning from Droid’s mistakes and taking the time to make everything really seamless for the user. iPhones are slick both in hardware and software design. Androids feel clunky to me – I really don’t like the UI. That’s just my opinion and why I’m an Apple user. Plus, I really like how all the devices work together.

I’m talking bigger than the iPhone.

I have had to switch my team alliance to your team, because we don’t have one anymore. (At least I still get the Sonics on NBA Jam.)

Apple then steals technology and rebrands it as innovation and the only option. I’m all for sharing technologies but this sounds pretty evil.

You who told me I had a Samsung Moment ( a CDMA phone that was only offered on Sprint) running on a prepaid carrier such as Simple Mobile that uses HSPA+. You who told me on multiple occasions that rooting was for “2 plus year old devices” despite a HUGE rooting community behind your (then) Evo 4G. You who stated many times that the Evo 3D would be “Sprint’s flagship device well into 2012”, when it stopped being sold not even 3 months into the new year. Yeah, you know sooo much about technology.
