Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

Android has changed so much because it needed to change. It is just now with JellyBean becoming reasonably usable w.r.t performance.

But then again everybody (most of them anyway) are upset if Microsoft dears to innovate in Windows.


It's always been usable, it's just that vendors did some horrific things with it and put it on underpowered hardware. As long as you had the right phone, it was fine. Even in 2009 with the original Droid, it was light years ahead of iOS. Anything that ran stock (as opposed to skins like NonSense or Bloatoblur) ran beautifully. Maybe not as smooth as iOS, but smooth enough.

It's like Linux... ya just gotta be using the right distro ;) hehe

In 2009 when it was finally time to upgrade my Nokia E70 I tried stock Android in emulator on a high end PC. And it sucked, not because of underpowered hardware or Samsung's bloatware, but because Android was garbage.

Bought Nokia N900 instead.

If its only smooth using X phone on Y carrier with Z ROM then its' not really smooth. The average user wont be mindful of that.

Android the brand, stood for a subpar experience, and I've observed this personally from many, and only recently is this sentiment starting to change with people.

Really? Is that why my Gingerbread phone runs so well? (Especially for a phone that cost a tenth of an iPhone).
