i have both (nexus 7 and iphone 5).

i think iOS is more polished. the annoying thing i notice in android are apps. some work, some don't. most apps arent universally compatible to all devices compared to iOS.
the scrolling is a lot better in iOS a well. but android has the upper hand in customization. but if you want a device that simply does what you want, iOS is the way to go. each has their own pros and cons.

Exactly. I wish more people would understand this.

This is exactly how I feel. I use my Apple products every single day of my life, and in the end, I just want them to work correctly the first time. Apple products almost never let me down in this regard. Not to mention they also look great. These things together make the devices worth much more than the price premium Apple charges.

No problem here. Except my set up looks really ghetto now; my Dice wire is Firewire based with no charging support so I have a converter attached to supply power, and now on top of that I have the 30-pin to lightning adapter. At least all of this is hidden away in the center armrest.

There isn't anything "obvious" about subjective subject matter. What's the best for some isn't the best for all.

The trouble is, there are a good number of people who've owned both who agree with their sentiments. Android is more customizable, but iOS is more polished and stable.

Not to mention unification. But this really shouldn't be a debate thread.

I'm not debating, just separating fact from opinion. Facts are things such as sales and activation figures, not "pick iOS if you want a device that simply does what you want." And based on such facts, there are also quite a few people who disagree with such an opinion.

I also like how no one jumps on the moderator for agreeing with me

Nah, he owns both. He is more qualified to speak on the two operating systems than you.

Well then I'm glad he agrees with me.


Anyways, in other news, it looks like Google is putting the finishing touches on that maps app for iOS that was rumored awhile back:

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2412213,00.asp

Given that it's approved in the app store, it should be available soon.

So go to a non-Apple thread and discuss what you want.

I don't understand why you constantly derail the iOS product discussions. We want to talk about the product, not the incessant "android is better blah blah blah" instigations.
