For me its the browsing experience I want my phone to be my mini desktop that it can handle almost everything in web browsing. I thought iphone 4s can handel that. But to my disappointment yeah you can jb it and add or down load an app to do that but to many side effec crashing is one of them. And when I jb it I notice it slowdown significantly. But my galaxy nexus it was wow. The screen is great and os is great. Can stream almost anything I did not root my nexus still in stock mode but still doing what I want. And most of all I got everything that I want without selling my remaining arm ( sell my left for that 4s )

Ye, and more Toyota Corollas are sold than S Class Mercedes. This doesn't mean Corollas are better than S Class Mercedes. Corollas are just cheaper, lower class product for cheap people with no class and not much money. And the cheap, low class, broke people will always be the majority.

iOS has its own advantages, so does Android. But, Android win in the UI customization for the phone owner, a lot of manufacture and hardware choices (i.e screen size).
Maybe iOS can do that, but by jail break.

One cant help be of the view that WP8 will be a game changer and Android and Apple market share will decline. This report is likely to be the highest Android will ever go particularly if WP8 is as good as has been suggested. WP8 will naturally hack into Anroid market share first given dogged Apple loyalty. I am looking forward to what WP8 can do and was also impressed with the Nokia 920. This is not about just benchmarks in isolation but a total integrated device, something Apple knows all too well, plus more, something Android just does not deliver.

If people like crapple products they'll choose it.
The amount of phones doesn't affect anything.
Just gives smart people some flexibility.

Ios users are accustomed to being ripped off and willing to fork out money for anything. In simple words, Ios is a Cash-Cow. Personally I prefer Windows mobile and have my own issues with both IOS and Android.

Aaaahhhh! Here I see Sanjay Chandra commenting again trying to defend iPhone or iOS. Later, will just end up saying “I’m not an iFan”! Oh common, why don’t you get a life! Are you an Apple paid employee who comes up in every iOS v/s Android comment and try to defend Apple! Or you think you’ll get the upcoming iPhone 5 for free from Apple if you aspire to utter good things about Apple Inc here! Please excuse me sir, have no intention in offending you but I guess what iHaters are commenting is RIGHT! Bring and iLover you may fail to perceive those negative aspects of having an iPhone and I’m sure you’ll just keep on complaining about other OS. And in case you don’t thrive in proving iOS is superior, you’ll seek help from WP8! Right?
