(Disclaimer: I like iOS, Android, and Windows Cool

I think Apple was right that it's less about the hardware and more about the experience.

Android is a very fragmented ecosystem when you get down to it, since every manufacturer has their own take on Android and they have to adapt the software to their hardware, then test and apply updates when new versions are released (or choose to not support newer versions of Android). Android phones set themselves apart by innovative hardware: first to adopt LTE (before iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows), first to adopt NFC, etc. So naturally the more technically inclined people, who value an open system with high-end hardware, are drawn to Android. But when you get down to the core of it, Android is ...

I agree it more about the user experience. And yes I am an Apple hater but I will absolutely give Apple its due. And yes you are right about the seamless software/hardware integration. That is what I like about Windows Phone 8.

But you cannot tell me that the iPhone is not fragmented. Just because the iPhone 4 is on IOS 6.1.3 doesn't mean that it has all the same features as the iPhone 4s or 5.

You're right, it's not 100%. And I also agree, it's why I love Windows 8 and it's my favorite now (get my cake, eat it too).

However, my friend upgraded from a 3GS to a 5 and said it was the exact same thing to him. If he upgraded from a GS2 to a HTC One, that wouldn't be the case.

It's less about features and more about interface.

But there's no difference between interface and features, as the interface IS a feature.

Personally I have used iOS, Andriod, and WP, forced to use Blackberry because of work.

I like Andriod over iOS because I dont have to hack my phone to be able to customize it to my liking. Then there were a bunch of missing features that I love on Android and wouldnt have on iOS. The iOS 7 hopefully will take care of that. Even then the iOS is not for me. I hate iTunes with a passion and all those compatibility issues with Apple devices all bad because I dont like MacOS.

I would use WP8 but the lack of functional important apps kills it for me. So for now Android has been the most functional one that works for me and my needs.

As far as Android and user interfaces no matter which one you buy you arent stuck with what you got like...

Who knows, maybe cause the new one is TOO similar to the old one, lol! Still no 4.5/4.7/or 5.0 inch screen, I'm not one of those crazy Galaxy Note people who likes "monster phones" but I do like a good size screen to watch videos on..
