Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Ralf Rottmann is CTO and co-founder of the largest mobile application developer in Germany, Grandcentrix. He has more Apple devices than an Apple Store and thinks he's a fanboy - yet, he's switched to the Nexus 4 completely, stating that "the latest version of Android outshines the latest version of iOS in almost every single aspect". This line in particular rings true for me as a Windows Phone 8 and Android user: "whenever I grab my iPhone for testing purposes, iOS feels pretty old, outdated and less user friendly". This will most likely be dismissed as a troll by some, but it has to be said: iOS has become stale, bordering on being outdated, and lacks several crucial pieces of functionality, neatly detailed in Rottman's article. Apple has a lot of catching up to do, or it will be Mac OS all over again.

Both platforms are fundamentally flawed, imho. Google needs to re-write Android's UI-prioritization from the ground-up (currently they're just depending on overpowered hardware to mask the deficiencies)

The hardware will likely only get more "overpowered"...

Android [...] Problem is that people seem to give the OS priority over the applications. [...] there are so few threads/discussions dedicated to using apps to get actual stuff done. Makes you wonder what the "power" users are actually doing with their devices in real world scenarios.

Hm, maybe people are happy mostly with core functions provided by the OS, Google apps, and web pages? (how many iOS apps are glorified RSS readers?)
