You're right... he doesn't know a good amount about iOS. I thought everyone knew about the split keyboard on iPad. Guess not. He also complains about the lack of Google-specific services while not comparing them to Apple-equivalent ones (Google music vs iTunes??)

But he does bring some important points on the iOS experience. We all know it. Android is levels beyond iOS. Apple knows it and their just too stubborn.

I honestly would've preferred him to do this video in Japanese. His Engrish isn't quite there yet.

Nice vid. The points he goes over is exactly why I prefer Android (Transformer prime) over the iOS (iPad 3).
I have both tablets as well. And have used Android and iOS for awhile now.

Youtube on iOS just sucks. App needs to be redone.
Browsing in iOS is smooth and touch response is better. However Safari just doesn't function half the time on alot of sites.
etc etc etc.
New Retina display is really nice. Text is crisp. I prefer ibooks and etc on iPad.
Movies... even with Retina display. Movies are better on Prime. Better aspect ratio. etc.

Coming for a user who has both as well. All the reasons he points out is exactly why I use Android over iOS.

iPad2 32GB
Samsung Galaxy S II Epic Touch
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Asus Transformer Prime 32GB

I noticed he was having a hard time with YouTube HD to work on ios, does iOS play HD by default? On some of the videos he was playing he couldn't really tell the difference.

I don't think YouTube app on IOS plays HD by default. I have an Ipad and never noticed it saying HD or anything like Android version does. the videos look good but not as good as on prime.

In my opinion, Android and iOS both are pretty neck and neck.

Performance between the iPad (2012) and the Transformer Prime follows:

The A5X has two A9 cores @ 1.00 ghz.
The Tegra 3 has four A9 cores @ 1.2-1.7 ghz.

Processing power: Tegra 3 wins and is fairly close to newer dual core A15 chips.

GPU wise: The A5X wins hands down.

The main difference is the Prime has a nicer build quality, is thinner, pretty equal battery life (without the dock) but has a MUCH lower resolution.

The iPad 2012 has an incredibly high resolution that is pushing for newer high resolution screens.

I use Android and iOS every day. I cannot decide which I like more just like Mac OS X and Windows. Android fans should be happy about the new iPad because it just means more high-resolution screens for everybody. iOS fans should be happy for Android because it means iOS is going to get better.

and everyone should be excited for Windows 8 for ARM.
IOS can never be Neck to Neck to Android...

The Ipad hardware is good but IOS is garbage....

After watching this video, I have more respect for the more "Sophisticated" Android OS. He compared the OS on the 2 best tablets out in the market today. that Ipad interface was soo boring. As far as functionality and everything goes, Prime spanks the Ipad really bad. Android YouTube app is way better and loaded up faster. Android mail or gmail was better. even the Ipad browser loaded up slower. plus you seen how the touchscreen on the Ipad was sketchy. had to keep tapping several times to make something happen. This video was a horrible reminder of part of the reasons I love my prime more than my Ipad. Android OS just has alot more going on. plus ICS now makes things simple yet still has deep features. Especially on the multitasking. Ipad multitasking is a joke. I don't feel the video was biased. he compared all the major common apps people would use on both devices. That new Ipad n IOS 5 looks just like my ipad1 on IOS 4.2.1. no difference on the surface(aside from display resolution). Damn that Ipad looks so boring to use. I watched most of the video but got bored looking at that simple Ipad screen. Ipad is for the more simplistic person. Android is for the more complex and imaginative person.

ill never go back to Apple. my Ipad worked great for me for 2 years. But coming to Android has opened my eyes up to the fact that so much more can be done on a Android tablet right out the box. video clearly showed Prime the better device. even prime homescreen sailings was faster. plus I love the point he brought up about tablet apps on IOS. which was true. All in all, new Ipad looks like a bore to use. ill stick with my thinner, lighter, more advanced technology(tegra3 quad/5 core) having Transformer Prime.

on another note, haven't you noticed that the new Ipad hype has seemed to die down already. this new Ipad hype has Sizzler out the fastest out of all generations. seems like apple losing their touch. Especially with ipad2 owners not being impressed enough to upgrade. previous generations made you want to upgrade. not this one

Only watched the first 10 minutes but I thought they were very biased. It was clear that this guy prefers the android experience to iOS. Also, comparing Google Apps on iOS and Android seems silly to me as it seems natural that Googles primary target will always be to provide the best viewing experience on devices running their own OS.
