could you elaborate on what's so great about iOS? And don't say the Eco-System, because that's a whole different topic...
Apple's iOS is as outdated as a DVD player. I've had multiple apps crash on my iPad, except that in iOS you don't get a Force Close message, the app just disappears from your screen, like nothing happened. I'm not talking about third party apps either, I have Safari shutting down randomly almost every day.
Don't even get me started about the Home button and iOS' "multitasking" capabilities. I takes two presses of a button, a long press and a short press to shut down an application, as opposed to Android's 1 click and 1 swipe.
Apple even half-a**ed the stolen notification bar, the only thing it's good for is annoying people. You can't even disable/enable wifi, bluetooth, data or whatever without going to the settings screen.
Just to be clear my basis of comparison is Android 4.2 Jelly Bean vs iOS 6, so I'm not talking about how crappy Android used to be 2-3 years ago, but how crappy and unchanged iOS is compared to the latest Android version today.
