I just recently switched from an LG G4 on my business line to an iPhone, and on AT&T I currently have an unlocked HTC One M9 that I am messaging you from right now ... the reason I switched from the Verizon branded LG G4 to an iPhone 6S Plus is simply from utter annoyance that the carriers can do whatever they feel like on Android phones branded with their name on it, like they own all exclusive rights or something, which does not float well in my boat. I feel betrayed by Google that you guys allow the carriers to modify my phone without my permission, withhold updates from me if I am not using that carrier's network, and completely destroy my phones with bloatware that cannot be removed and re-enables easily and remotely if updated. I bought my LG G4 for some great reasons, like LG's promise to system updates, useful Smart Actions features, the ability to customize with Themes, and more but instead I got a phone with ALL those features turned off and instead had Candy Crush, Clash of Clans, and other silly games that do not interest me WHATSOEVER deliberately pushed onto my phone and then forced to pay for premium visual voicemail - I got sick of it! I didn't want the phone anymore because Google, you let Verizon and other carriers completely blindside the users that buy the phones from them just so the carriers get an extra few bucks here and there for advertising the user did not consent into. iOS doesn't do that, and neither do (most) unlocked Android phones - Which is why I switched to the iPhone on my Verizon business line (and also stayed with my HTC One M9 Developer Edition Unlocked). Apple, regardless if the carrier subsidized the phone, forces the carriers to follow STRICT policies that prohibit the carrier from keeping the user from using their phone as advertised and bypasses carrier 'legislation' regarding OS updates, giving users the best software to-date and security patches as easy as a click away, instead of waiting months upon months to get something fixed, something so serious like StageFright or HeartBleed.
Google, please do something about this. To wonder why so many people stay with iOS or switch to iOS is a no-brainer. No advertising techniques will trump Apple because Apple is strictly towards simplicity, safety, and security of the users while Google, in many eyes, turns out to be in bed with the carriers for money and locks down any feature without reason, also adding to stability issues of the Android ecosystem overall - Everyone is on some form of different update or locked down to such where it's hard for apps and the phones in general to function.
Please take this seriously, I WANT Android to succeed moreso than it is now, but the users need CHOICE and the satisfaction that they bought what they paid for.
