PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Many people think that all Androids are equal and it's a race to the bottom where the cheapest vendor wins. This could not be farther from the truth. For me, it all began half-a-year ago, when I bought the Samsung Galaxy S III and was absolutely stunned by it, then exploring and comparing it with other Androids. Now that Google has fired a shot across the bow with its low pricing for the unlocked Nexus 4, where does that leave Samsung and its flagship handset?

The way Android works, is that the OEMs do all the testing, tweaking, and implementing new features. Then Google takes the best implementations and incorporates them into AOSP so that everyone gets access to them.


You're saying that Samsung, LG, HTC, etc. give Google their proprietary source? Really?

Differentiating features - no. Common improvements - yes.

No, Google takes the best ideas and implements them in AOSP.

So Google steals their ideas then?
