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for me as a Windows Phone 8 and Android user: "whenever I grab my iPhone for testing purposes, iOS feels pretty old, outdated and less user friendly". This will most likely be dismissed as a troll by some, but it has to be said: iOS has become stale, bordering on being outdated, and lacks several crucial pieces of functionality, neatly detailed in Rottman's article.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.

Though I can appreciate what a user might see in owning a iPhone especially if their heavily invested in Apples hardware, I personally really dislike iOS. Nothing wrong with that, I have just gotten used to using a file-manager, especially one that can connect to my companies SAMBA drives. I also still really like removable batteries and SD Card slots, not to mention DIVX, Flash and other Media codecs.
