Which Android manufacturers have the least trouble with bugs?
So who consistantly makes an android that is stable and reliable? Do I need to root the thing to get rid of bloat in order to acheive stability? Or do I have to get last year's model to get mature software?
These open platforms verses closed systems (including the iPhone) reminds me of the mid-eighties battle between the PC and Mac. We were able to build PCs, modify the Bios, choose operating systems, and apps. Every PC could be quite different.
Being able to shape your Android to work the way you choose is powerful and intoxicating! -Like rebuilding a muscle car, without the grease under the finger nails.
As well, HTC tends to do a better job, IMHO, out of the box making a great, bug free Android device. There is no such things as 100% bug free, though, given these really are just small computers with very large and complex operating systems. Even the iPhone has plenty of bugs and glitches.
You (and Hobble) have convinced me! Now I just have to muster up enough discipline to hold out until HTC releases a dual core LTE device! (Maybe the Vigor?)
They are, imo, the BEST phone manufacturer out there.
