My daily drivers is currently the One X and 4s, though it will soon be the iPhone 5, which is currently being used as a DD by another dev.
(Other phones in the fleet include an HTC Inspire, iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 4, Galaxy Nexus, and Droid X2.)
If you want to know why I side with Apple's reasoning, it's because in the big picture, Apple has created an ecosystem that is extremely healthy. It's not just the iOS, it's the hundreds of thousands of really killer applications. Users are comfortable paying for quality applications, and developers are comfortable investing time and energy into perfecting a lot of details. No way around it- they've done a fantastic job.
Google's getting there, but I've been critical because instead of biting the bullet and focusing on a solid user experience, they were trying too hard for checklist dead-end features (Flash.). ICS and JB are finally pushing it to where I think it should be.
