Android is winning...yes
But I would still say hats of to Apple
They single-handedly battling it out Android (WP included). Releasing one phone/year.
How many OEMs does Android have? Yeah...
I still do think it's a feat for Apple.

Get your fact straight. Android is just like the rest of them. There will be another OS to replace it. It's not like Microsoft vs Apple in PC.
Anonymous, 14 Dec 2012Too many android devices out there vs the iPhone? Are kidding me?
Samsung, LG, Sony, Motoro... moreno matter how many competirtors youll be battling of as long as you own good phone. costumers will choose your iphone but the truth is 72% android users didnt see iphone good.
best strategy of android is google make it open source and if youre an advance user you can costumize your android phone and you can learn more knowledge too

Such is the level of b blindness.
Rony15, 14 Dec 2012whatever any one sais.....iOS is the bestMay be to u alone,ios has no sd card for expandable external memory while android and even wp has.iphone5 no nfc now days even a vending machine has nfc u have made a mistake actually apple ios is the worst,uglyest and dumbest platform.android is the greatest.
Rony15, 14 Dec 2012whatever any one sais.....iOS is the bestNokia Asha users say the same about their feature phone OS with some smartphone functionality. And aha is smooth on low end hardware, don't need dual core and a gig of RAM. And it's not dependent on iTunes.

say NO to change!, 14 Dec 2012That new activation numbers are worthless, because sadly user root their phone and need to re-... morerooting does not reactivate your phone rooting just gives you superuser access like admin on windows, your thinking flashing roms not rooting.
Now i know why Android is infested with malwares. Something that is open welcomes nasty things. :D
Mr.Esa, 13 Dec 2012I use both OS's daily and have to admit, its all about iOs stability and user experience vs op... moreMan, if you use your phone just as a phone(like calling,a little surfing,4 or 5 popular apps like fb,skype etc), iOS is good.It has the biggest and nicely controlled app ecosystem. If you are looking for a greater reach, Android is the only way, which MeeGo could be. ICS and later JellyBean update awesome,smooth,extreamly stable. If I had iPhone 1 or 2, could I get the fun of iOS6? But I am getting JB fun in a 2nd generation phone albeit I didn't get the official update. And using iOS is expensive compared to Android, be its pricey hardware(iStuffs) or its 70% of 'not free' apps whereas 65-70% of android app is free or has a free alternative. The only problem in Android is fragmentation, Google fighting that maintaining a clear app design guideline. But again, if you've watched Tron, you know perfection is not always good ;)

Anonymous, 14 Dec 2012wow,you need to retype all that mess you just spewed.Yes in term of quality, design, apps and UX all goes to iPhone.
Its amazing so many quality can be put in one product!
Its not google vs apple. Its apple vs the world.
And looks like apple smack the worlds ass!
This is not the same as Microsoft vs Apple on PC. Mobile phone space changes fast. Windows Mobile, Symbian, iOS were once had most marketshare. Android will be replaced with another OS too.
Anonymous, 14 Dec 2012Of course it is winning as Android is a made-in-American product. Amercian technologies best! umm,so is the apple IOS.but ,way to crack the case there murder she wrote...
