Huawei always say their phones will be getting an upgrade, but it never happens.

The 4.4 upgrade by Huawei for ascend p6 was planned well ahead. They did affirm the upgrade back in august and earlier. Plus their timing is good too because their new version of UI, Emotion UI 2.0 is also coming soon within next two months. And add to that, a couple of new phones to be released.

Plus miui can be said as a rip off of something else and so on if you connect the dots. Different chinese UI have many similarities, for example many of them removed the app drawer, but people who seen just miui would say its a rip off from them while others who seen just iOS would say it is a rip off from them.

The LG family is getting it in December, that is official from telekom France. And they'll upgrade the optimus family: G, G Pro, LG G2 and the crazy VU2.

iOS is Closed and only Available to Apple I phones and No way it will become Open Like Android , So do not compare

I admire iOS, because they can update at one time, whole world, regardless of your country, carrier. With Android, the manufacturer, needs to send codex to Google, then Google sends back to manufacturer, then the manufacturer send it to carriers, then carriers decides, if they want to do some updates or not. Meaning, if they want to spend some bucks on it.
