most of these updates they are getting are half baked.
when all devices get them the low end ones get half-baked updates

Yes I'm aware of instant messaging apps that you mentioned, in the absence of data subscription, how can you transfer files from one device to another? Yes that's where bluetooth comes to play.

there we can use bluetooth.
plus apple has bluetooth but we can't share files with any apple user over bluetooth even with jailbreak.

there are hundreds of such things and restriction on apple devices even after jailbreak and not to forget the lack of functionality when compared to android

BT transfer for iphone vs size limitation of files on android argument cancel each other out right? haha

How did they use BT transfer? if 90% is doing it? ...

Most popular way people transfer is via FB / Email / MMS / Dropbox if big files.. unless ur transferring XXX pictures that need to be kept confidential.. -_-

While android excels at file transfer protocols, it has size restrictions and mounting restrictions.

Cannot download greater then 4gb, fat32 restriction.
Cannot mount ntfs via otg.

But then again.. if you jailbreak your iphone or you root your android, both limitations could be removed, and iphone can use BT transfer, just as android can mount ntfs or download greater then 4gb.

As for itunes, you can use diskaid instead to drag and drop files.

But you got a point there, iOS is more restrictive if you are the only iOS user.

You virtually can't do anything without going through iTunes. Lucky iTunes works fairly well, but it's still a ball & chain.
