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.

The uppercase keyboard thing is something I constantly torture an Apple fanboy colleague with. And, yes, his only pathetic defence was the ludicrous one that you stated - "real keyboards have upper case keys all the time".

Android has a better default keyboard than iOS without a shadow of a doubt and has had the ability to change between the default and third-party keyboards (some of which are even better than the default) for years now. I personally prefer the Hacker's keyboard, which has the option for what I consider essential keys such as cursor keys amongst others.
