There are over 24,000 unique Android devices according to OpenSignal¹ and every time a new device is released you always have a crowd of people complaining about what they don't like. Let me put this into perspective. There are 1 Billion+ 30-day active Android users and when you think about it every single one of these people have different opinions about what they like and dislike in a device. There is no way that you can build a device that appeals to every single person. Just like there are over 7 Billion² people in the world, there is no way you can create clothing, food, cars etc. tailored for everyone's likes and dislikes. Android wasn't designed so that every device released appeals to everyone. It was designed to give users choice. It was designed to spur innovation in a mobile market where things can get stagnant pretty quickly.
If you can't tell, this is where Apple and Google differ. If Google wanted every person to have the same device they would have taken the Apple approach and they would have given users one type of phone and tablet. The point I'm trying to make here is that the system wasn't designed for you to like everything. The complaints that spread through the Android community when devices are released aren't warranted and mean nothing when the very nature of the system was to give users choice. Embrace the differences and enjoy the options you have. Be together. Not the same.
