Android In June of last year, I finally decided to commit to an Android device. I had carried every flagship iPhone up through that point from the original iPhone to the 5S. To the world around me, I heaped the praise into a life transforming device, but in my tech circles, and on my blog, I frequently posted about my frustration, mostly with shackles and intentional limitations imposed. So last year, why I decided to make the jump to Android. I outlined 10 reasons why I was finally ready to make the jump to Android’s 4.4 release, KitKat. A year has passed. It's time to revisit my original assertions and complaints with some follow up and see where I stand one year later.

About the bad apps and software support: Android gives everyone enough rope to hang themselves. Hardware companies, carriers, software developers alike. If you want the best of Android, you need a Google phone (Nexus) and you need to curate every app personally.

The only way to get Apple-like software support from Android is with a Nexus.... or by buying a new Android phone every year, so you never find out how bad your hardware manufacturer is at maintaining software.
