Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Ralf Rottmann is CTO and co-founder of the largest mobile application developer in Germany, Grandcentrix. He has more Apple devices than an Apple Store and thinks he's a fanboy - yet, he's switched to the Nexus 4 completely, stating that "the latest version of Android outshines the latest version of iOS in almost every single aspect". This line in particular rings true for me as a Windows Phone 8 and Android user: "whenever I grab my iPhone for testing purposes, iOS feels pretty old, outdated and less user friendly". This will most likely be dismissed as a troll by some, but it has to be said: iOS has become stale, bordering on being outdated, and lacks several crucial pieces of functionality, neatly detailed in Rottman's article. Apple has a lot of catching up to do, or it will be Mac OS all over again.

My suspicion is that people were using Android 2 on really low-end phones/tablets (like less than half the speed of mid-ranges ones) and somehow the IT media perpetuated this myth that all Android devices prior to JB were uselessly stuttery!


I've got a very low spec Android phone (Samsung Galaxy Mini - 192MB RAM, 600MHz CPU Android 2.36). It works perfectly adequately
