Android

I am taking the plunge and moving from an iPhone to an Android device. I've been waiting a long time for Android to get to the point that it was fast and responsive enough, with a big enough application warehouse, wide enough support, and a smooth enough experience, to support me. Android is maturing with a consistent, system-wide look-and-feel, almost every major service now has an Android app as the counterpart to its iOS-first experience, and has a bright future with wearables, home automation, and more.

I certainly won't be the first person to change ecosystems entirely. Several have done it before, some looking for change or claim freedom, some aiming to save money, some because someone prompted them, some think they may be conforming by going with the ever-stylish Apple. I am doing it for this reason: for me, Android is now a better platform than iOS.

Gotta agree. I was recently playing with a Nexus 10 we have at work. On paper, the thing is more powerful than an iPad (at least pre-Air). Even with 4.4 the experience still sucks on it though. Returning to the home screen often flashes black for a split second before it can manage to load the wallpaper and icons. UI is laggier than iOS, Chrome quite unstable watching videos and often crashed. No thanks.
