The only thing that will attract me in a phone will be a camera that is so much better you see the difference without zooming in and peeping at pixels or a phone with a batter that gives you 15 or 20 hours screen time. All other developments will be nothing to speak of.

After all the hoopla these are still just phones.

iPhone Max, or whatever they call the big screen phone they're rumored to be coming up with. I love the big screen on the note, but I don't find Android very usable. It's powerful, flexible, but I need a practical tool, not an experimentation platform, and I don't want to have to do testing and quality assurance for the manufacturer. Why bother having 10 different ROMs at your disposal when none of them works quite right? The minute Apple releases a phone with a big screen, it's sayonara Android.

Most of the ROMS work just fine, and there is nothing experimental about stock. TW works perfectly. I'd have a very difficult time going back to IPhone. Hell, I even hate my iPod now.

P.S. I'd rather have 10 different 99% working ROMS than 1, 7 year old 100% boring OS. Just my .02.

What exactly within Android Jelly Bean + that doesn't work quite right for you?

If you are talking about the MultiWindow and the cpu exploit, that is Samsung issues and not Android itself.

If you are taking about home launchers, that manufacturers add on, that is the manufacturer's issues. Which is one of the reasons why some people go for Nexus. So they can have Android without manufacturer's home launchers. You also have your own choice of home launchers too. Apple don't give you that choice. It is Apple's home launcher or the highway. Which is one of several reasons that some people say that Apple is not innovating. I don't see this as Android experimenting, but creating choice.

Are you talking about the way manufacturers try to prevent rooting and using roms? This is what manufacturers have to do to please carriers and to protect their own interests. And no different from what Apple does.

Are you talking about the mass of roms? Like I said above, rooting and using roms is not the intent of these devices. So that becomes your own choice and risk. This is what Apple prevents. Some see it as preventing the dangers of experimenting. While others find Apple's restriction as prevention of user's choice. But the point is you don't have to root or rom to use Android.

Are you talking about the delay of Android updates? This is due to both manufacturers and carriers alike. Still see more updates from Android than from iOS.

Are you talking about the innovative features that you see from Android and Android manufacturers like Samsung? Quirkiness goes with innovation. You see the same quirks with Apple innovation as you do with Android innovation. You remember Apple's maps in iOS?

Are you talking about the quirkiness of downloading iTunes music into Android devices? That is due to Apple's control over their own ecosystem and not Android itself. There are Android apps to make it easier to download iTunes music into Android devices. There is also Amazon music and Google Play Music that is easy to download and sync music with Android devices. But iTunes issues is totally due to Apple protecting their ecosystem. That is Apple's bad.

Are you talking about some Android apps not as polished as may want them? The openness of Open Source in Android allows more application development than iOS. Within this openness you will get some apps not as polished as you may want them. But there are many very polished apps for just about everything you want to do within the Android ecosystem. It is your choice which apps you use and how much money you willing to pay for the apps.

Android comes down to choice.

So what is in Android that doesn't work for you?
