Ok, people, stop comparing IOS with Android. Android is Android and Ios is Ios.
Just buy a device with the OS satisfies you. For example, after a lot of thinking, i decided to buy a Windows tablet.
This is my vision of all mobile os:
Android for Google, games, personalization, pictures.
Ios for games, icloud, simplicity, updates
Windows 8 for work, school, games, updates.
Sorry, my English is not perfect. I am from Romania.
Have a nice day!
I Guess the Name for next version of Android OS can be "Lime-Pie"
Anonymous, 25 Jun 2014Actually the notifications on iOS are as complete as on Android.And the widgets are completely... moreNo they aren't. Widgets in iOS 8 are limited to notifications. They aren't available on normal screens in any news release or images that i have seen.
For example, on my GN3 home screen i have a calendar widget showing upcoming appointments, a weather widget showing temps and forecast for my current location, direct dial/contact widgets and a torch widget.
These show you live data and allow you to interact directly with a phone function without going into an app (i.e. start the torch or ring someone directly)

Ammu whity, 25 Jun 2014Android "L" could it stand for Lite or Life? Sounds quite catchy either way. Lollipop
