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.

I finally moved the other way around (to iPhone) last year. Got fed up with devices never getting updated.

Couldn't be happier.

All you had to do was install CyanogenMod 12, you can get updates daily, yes daily. The iPhone is just no where near as powerful as an Android device as it's missing many core features. You can't select your own default apps, you can't run apps in the background, inner-app communication is horrible, Example: if you install OneDrive, you will never see it listed under any of the apps share list, so it's pretty much useless. File management is just horrible in iOS, it saves all of its files under the app that created it. You can't modify the quick settings toggles, etc. There are a lot more but you get the point. Now I'm sure you will come back with I don't need any of that, yes, actually you do, your just compromising and are convincing yourself that your fine without them. You can torture yourself if you want as it makes no difference to me but any company that doesn't allow you to at least choose your own default apps is not one that I want to do business with and if you except this as being okay, your part of the problem, as it's wrong. No other mobile OS does this but Apple's iOS, that tell's us that they think they can get away with anything, which if people like you keep ignoring things likes this than, well I guess they can.
