    Is there anything that iOS does better than Android anymore? I sorta have trouble thinking of any :XX :(

    Maybe responsiveness..? :(

    There's a world to discover with Android.

    I would say more tablet specific apps, you could call it more simplified out of the box but you can simplify android too. Um...tap the status bar to go to the top. It's not a big deal but it is something I will miss when I leave iOS in a few weeks. iMessage only because most of my fiends have iOS but groupme is really catching on so that's no biggie. Honestly it would be easier for me to say what android does better at this point. But iOS is still great.

    It wasn't until after Apple dropped Google Maps and transit directions that I begun looking into Android.

    The things I like better about iOS is its apps/media selection and its simplicity/stability. I would never get Android on a tablet, though. Too many iPad-exclusive apps.

    But it's amazing how far Android is ahead of iOS. It looks awesome on a phone.

    iOS has Apple's ecosystem, superlative design and engineering teams, and support behind it. It's simpler (good or bad), more responsive, more stable, and has some advantages over Google in features.

    However, Android is packed to the brim with really advanced features. Some are going to be unseen and unused by the majority of consumers, but for die-hard tech geeks that require maximum control over their phone, Android is a must. From what I gather, anyways. I think it needs to be more user friendly, having some official aggregate for customization, more intuitive, and more responsive/polished.

    They're both really good, just different. Google Now looks awesome, and some things on Android are more powerful and just make more sense (Notifications, Multi-tasking). I'm tempted occasionally, too.

    Apples build quality is second to none but phones built by LG and HTC aren't too far behind.

    If I was going to switch to android it would be a phone. I still think iPads are better and if you have an Apple TV or airport express having an iOS device is a must.
