I have a Galaxy Nexus GSM unlocked and a Motorola Xoom, both running Jelly Bean....the last time I needed to reset the Xoom in November when it was running Honeycomb (which everyone agrees was not a very good build) and I have never had to reset the Galaxy Nexus.

If you go to the options, then go to 'about phone' or 'about tablet' then hit 'status' it tells you how long it has been since the last reset...

Currently my Galaxy Nexus stands at 1,293 hours, which happens to be the exact number of hours since I installed Jelly Bean....before installing Jelly Bean, then count stood at around 1,500 hours, which is the exact number of hours since I've gone about 1,800 hours without a reset,...those 1,800 is equal to the number of hours since I bought and activated the phone. I have never reset it or even turned it off since activating it. The only reboot was to install Jelly Bean. That is so far 75 days or about 2 1/2 months without a reboot or reset.

The uptime on the Xoom at this moment is 949 hours, which is the exact number of hours since I installed Jelly Bean, before installing Jelly Bean, my uptime was at 2,949 hours, which is the exact moment I installed 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. I don't know what the uptime was when I installed 4.0.3, but I know it was more than 1,000 So my total known uptime, since upgrading to 4.0.3 is 3,898 hours, which is more than 162 consecutive days or a little more than 5 months. And truthfully, I haven't had to reboot this thing since I got Android 4.0 in January, so I know the actual uptime is a lot longer than what I have recorded.

In short.....Android 4.0 and above, on a phone or tablet running stock Android, is extremely reliable and stable. The uptime is measured in months, and the only time you absolutely have to reboot is to install an OS update.

So I call shenanigans on your claim that you are constantly having to reset Android devices.....I think you're full of it.

I have two different Android devices, made by two different manufacturers, both running stock Android, and I know for a fact that the uptime is measured in MONTHS......

I am willing to grant that iOS is also a very stable and reliable operating system...but so is Android, and so is Blackberry 7 and so is Windows Phone, Apple doesn't get to claim a monopoly on dependability....all the modern mobile OS in use today are very stable and dependable, reboots and resets are largely a thing of the past.

You need to update your Apple talking points, they are badly out of date.
