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.

People that professionally do music production use iOS, because it's the best.

People doing music professionally don't use iOS at all because ipads & iphones in the music world amount to nothing more than toys/gimmicks/novelties.

But this crap about how important 100 vs 20 ms latency is coming from people that have nothing better to do.

Latency is extremely important and addressed by specialized hardware, as I've already pointed out. 20ms is fine in production and live performance. 100ms is not. The only type of person who thinks thats crap is someone who has no clue what they're talking about.

Here's the dirty secret - it's exceptionally unimportant to 99% of users.

Yes, because 99% of users aren't doing music professionally and 99% of users are clueless on these subjects.
