PCH: What's your choice smartphone OS choice?

#21VolebamusPosted 8/5/2013 5:05:49 PM(edited)
I only prefer Android over iOS because of the choices of the larger screen size regarding the hardware that runs those OSes. I've been familiar with iOS directly through some use of an iPad, and even then the overall feel of that (if fair to compare to a smartphone) was still slightly better than the Nexus 4 I use now.

That, and app support for iOS is still much better than Android, though Google Play is much more convenient now than before. And the lack of support for the other devices is why I don't even consider them.

But despite that, smartphone screen size outweighs those other slight benefits in OS smoothness and app support.

Android

It's nice not being restricted to what formats to play or what software I need to use to sync my phone, and install apps that aren't necessarily okay'd by Google, and customize everything the way I want it...

Android, because even though some things are a mess, it's still better than dealing with Apple garbage.


As somebody who recently switched from iOS to android, I can guarantee that they are equally trash right now. How anybody thinks this this android garbage is better than the crap apple puts out is beyond me.


It's not iOS it's self. It's iTunes and the whole iTrash suite.


And? There isn't anything better on android right now either. Google play is a joke.


How does that matter? Android natively allows third-party apps without rooting. Apple still doesn't (from what I can tell).

That doesn't make it better by default. As far as I've seen, there is just as much worthless crap on the google play store as there is on itunes. Whether it is third party or not doesn't make it good.

Android is the future. Google is the future.


Better hope not since they are willing participants in PRISM or else you can look forward to a 1984 future.

the last Google Maps update, which really destroyed a whole lot of its usefulness for reasons I cannot figure out. :P I uninstalled the update, but it baffles me why they would change some of the things they did.


YES. I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE. Dear God, that update was underwhelming.

I have the same phone, and I noticed that too with the 4.1.2 update.
