    Yeah I like the hardware more than the software though if that were possible I would purchase i6+ instead of the i6.

    Not with 1GB of RAM. Even vanilla Android would make those resources hurt. Of course if they follow the 2GB trend of the Air 2, I'd love to see dual boot on a 6s.
    You seem to know a lot about phones girl! How is jailbreaking going with the iPhone I still have not yet done it. Used to run a rooted N5. Pm me

    Although I prefer iOS to Android any given day of the week, if I were able to dual-boot one or the other at my whim, I would consider it.

    Nope but I'd give iOS on a android a thought. With the specs in most android devices and the optimization in iOS I'm sure it'd be a great experience. Take a phone like the note 4 and remove samsungs laggy touch wiz for iOS and that'd be one beast of a phone ( not that it isn't already ). I prefer the fluidity of iOS and I love my iPhone 6 but I doubt it could handle android with such specs. Apple does a great job with ios though so it doesn't need to much to run it.

    So you're avoiding a whole, entire OS just because of your experience with a couple of the many devices available???

    Just because I don't own anything Android does not mean I don't have knowledge about the platform. I watch a lot of podcasts. I read blogs. I do it because I love tech. Do I hang out at Android specific websites and forums or watch Android specific podcasts? No I don't. However, like many geeks I'm tech support for my friends and family. So I do keep up with what's going on with other platforms for when I get asked about them. If I were forced into using Android it would have to be stock Android. However, I still wouldn't want it on my iPhone. I think it'd be a crappy experience. So to answer your question I'm avoiding an entire OS on more than just my experience with a couple of devices.

    Cool It was just from what you said, it sounded like it was based entirely off that.

    Stock Android is definitely the closest thing to iOS in many ways. I agree though, it probably wouldn't be the best experience in the iPhone.

    Sorry. I was being flippant with my answer. My sister's "crap" phones were Samsung's flagship devices at the time. So technically I guess I can't say they were crap, but I still didn't/don't like them.

    Well...I guess if you were desperate to have the particularly camera or design of the iPhone, that would be a reason why. I can't think how you could reply justify that though. There are plenty of pretty android phones with good cameras. So basically, there is no point unless you particularly loved the design

    In 2011 I had a EVO 3D which had Ginger Bread. It took a year for it to get ICS. By that time I had got a iPhone 4S a month before the iPhone 5 was released.

    I could still be using the 4S with the latest iOS. The EVO? I don't think so. The EVO was end of life a year after release.
    A year to get a OS update. A OS that was said to be perfect for the specs of the EVO.

    There are 6 iPhones that span a 3 year period that can be used with iOS 8. Are there 6 Android phones that run span the same time period that can use Lollipop?

    iPad 2. Same deal Almost 4 years old runs latest iOS.

    These are a few reasons why I avoid Android devices.

    The Apps was one of the things holding me back from my switch from Android to iOS.
    Why? Apps are much better on iOS. And more of them to choose from. I do a lot of photo editing and Photoshop on my iPhone. If I had Android OS on my iPhone, I wouldn't be able to do those things. The apps just are not there in the Google Play Store. I searched long and hard for them while my wife had her LG. Most photo editing apps for Android are more for enhancments and filters. Maybe that's changed since last year, but I couldn't find anything like Pankaj Goswami's Superimpose and Leonardo Photo Editor. They did have Adobe Photoshop Touch, but I read it was not as good as the iOS version.

    While updates are still a valid reason to prefer iOS, stock android is a different story. Just look at the Nexus 4. That is getting Lollipop, possibly looking at the next minor version of that if there is one.

    Then there is also this: Apple seems to update iOS devices just for sake of updating them. They have wonderful stats of X% being on the latest version etc. Then you look a bit deeper and start to notice how poor the updates can be. Even my iPad Mini 2 isn't running iOS 8 as smoothly as 7. I can't imagine iOS 9 or beyond. Performance seems to be very poor with iOS updates to older devices. Of course, the devices may sometimes miss out on new features that they could probably cope with, if Apple decided to put in a bit of effort to optimise.

    Yes, Apple gets its updates out very quickly, and provides updates for while, but the story is deeper than that. Stock Android is very good in these regards too, although other manufacturers aren't always as consistent.

    Because most of the apps I use I had to buy again or find something equal. They are more polished on iOS.

    I would rather try installing iOS on any android phone. That might be cool than trying android on iphone. I have seen people installed Yosemite on windows machines n they even work faster and stable and better than the latest model of the MacBook Pro. Yeah it's fun to mess up things like this anyway

    From what I see stock android is good on one line of phone the Nexus. What about the hundreds of other Android phones out there. I would guess that there are more other Android phones than the Nexus line.
    Of course older iDevices take a performance hit with iOS 8. I'm have the belief of using the technology and not letting it use me.
    My iPad 2 with iOS 8 doesn't get the work that it did when it was new but it gets it done.
    The manufacturers of Android devices should give users the option of using stock Android. That to me is more of a plan than the wish of Android being installed on a iPhone. But the lock down that Apple is always accused is greatly demonstrated by Android makers such as Touch Wiz, HTC Sense. I'm always reading about Samsung users hating Touch Wiz.

    I understand the humor, and the whole spec thing, just did not want to get into it. I've owned many android phones and don't feel like buying anymore. I love my Apple Hardware and trying different things I would not just limit it to android I would also like to try other OS's as well.

    I still think that having a dual boot device that could do iOS and Android, that idea is a bit magical to me. It could be really fun. I do think that spec wise, it would make more sense to put iOS on an Android phone. My Note 3 would be an amazing candidate to run iOS 8.1...
