You do realize they are to different countries.
South or North Korean, you're still Korean. And since North Korean students aren't all too common, Korean students is synonymous to South Korean students.

Android: Larger screens, better battery life (Motorola), replaceable batteries, open environment, catching up to iOS. Yes, Android has many faults too.

Apple: Apple Maps (no updates/corrections what-so-ever), no real innovation since the iPhone 3G, poor quality standards as of late (my original iPhone 5 had scratches on the case and so did my replacement from AppleCare itself).

As for "the deep integration". This just makes the iOS footprint larger. At least give users the options to remove features...

Words can't even explain.

Anyone who sees that iOS 7 will have Vimeo integration and immediately jumps to the conclusion that it will be a disaster of an OS is clearly either trolling or an idiot.

So, which one are you?
Anyone that knows a thing or two about social network integration would see that it's nothing more than a gimmick used to avoid substantial OS changes.

The jokes on you.

Lay out a more detailed argument, please.

What does that even mean? Anyone that knows a thing or two? Did you say that out loud before you typed it? Are you an expert on social network integration? Does the guidebook on it say "Only integrate social networks if you don't have any substantial improvements to your OS"? There are so many unanswered questions after your post. I expect none of your answers to be very good.

Piecemeal changes. You know, small features like social network which nobody really cares about rather than a bottom up change that most people expect.

Done.
You haven't given any more details. What does this 'bottom up' change involve? Is it a combination of hardware and software or just software?

Also, nobody cares about social networking? No one at all? Citation needed.

First off, you don't reinvent the wheel at every OS release. Adding more features on top of an already established and good OS is what you do. I'm not really expecting, nor do I want, a total rework of iOS. I like iOS as it is, but I encourage the addition of more features to make my experience even better.

Also, I care about social network integration. I've recently started using Flickr, so the addition of it to my social list is a plus for me.

Link to where the changelog for iOS7 is published and only mentions piecemeal changes? You speak as if you're in the know. Are you?
