Even the iphones have started to get longer and I meant the operation of the 2 phones are same fluidity not the difference and edge the ios used to have over Android phones before

I agree the gap has been bridged significantly since ICS, and I'd take Android over iOS regardless of the fluidity which I still think iOS has the edge. Doesn't bother me though.
In regards to size, any bigger than Note II or III and I'm out. Can just about live with this current size for comfortable everyday usage and going out with friends at night.

The software is optimized for the low quality hardware within the phone thus making the experience smoother. while android is not always optimized and is made for over thousands of different devices around the world from hundreds of different manufactures.The Note is great for casual use as well as other multimedia uses. The iPhone is in a different category then the Note 3 it is unreasonable to compare the two. By the way there screen size was the universal standard 4 years ago
Yep I agree with that, but most people couldn't care less about the specifics of why it appears smoother. The average consumer has no interest in specs or how the software is developed or optimised on a closed platform.
It would be nice if all apps could be optimised fully for Android, because really we should expect everything to be buttery smooth on the hardware of these phones, but even apps like Tapatalk stutter every now and then.
I can live with the drawbacks though and still prefer it over iOS.
