Google The Verge reviewed Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. "Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is one of the best products Google has ever produced. It's fast, fluid, and beautifully designed. It also does a better job of unifying all of Google's disparate services than anything else the company has ever offered. Everything from the Chrome browser, Google+, Maps, Gmail, and most of all Google Search - in the form of Google Now - is tightly integrated into a user experience that outshines even the company's web properties."

You are talking about a much broader question than I am. I'm just saying the software is better. Of course there are crappy target devices and the OEM's screw with the OS and ruin the experience.

In any case, I disagree that cheap devices can't have a good experience. Even cheap $100 phones and tablets could have AOSP via roms or if the OEMs simply weren't such total imbeciles in thinking that they are improving their product by "differentiating".

If an OEM wants to differentiate, they should just commit to using 100% AOSP and releasing fast updates.
