Very informative video but on the youtube feedback you have a viewer saying you are wrong when you said downloading stops if you watch a youtube video. Not sure if they are right but if they are maybe need to correct that, or correct them if they are wrong.

I think what you have is very good and hope to see more on youtube.

It's so much better to see differences in action rather than read through pages of fans from either side claiming things like they do on various sites and forums, very informative.

He is not wrong. The example I use, owning both as well is the browser. If I enter a large content web page with slow data, then recieve an email and view it, it does not matter how long I am away from the browser when I come back it is still loading. Other apps stop running completely when not in the foreground. With the browser example it appears that once you are out of the app for a couple of seconds it stops downloading. So it is not exactly where you left it but it never completes opening the web page till you come back to it. There are some apps that fully allow multi tasking, such as yahoo radio that will run in background. allot of this in my opinion is done behind the scenes in the os to make things appear to be moving faster than they really are.

the reality? lol are you a software engineer or something to make such bold statement? I think you're just silly, but it's ok if you like your buggy phone just don't think that's "better" usually apple users are more educated than android users and this video is proof, but proof of that lol, the way this is developing google will end up with a flying, shining invisible phone... that crashes when you need it to do a simple task, meanwhile apple will still be the best...
That guy is too funny. Apple users are more educated than us I guess.

Pictures worth a thousand words. Video is priceless.
OP, great work!

Suggestion: keep stock vs. stock to be fair in comparison since we all know Android custom ROMs go far beyond.

Customizing your icons,replacement launchers and widgets don't matter when the phone can't smoothly respond to the touch and apps look butt ugly compared to iOS. Wow, I can have live wallpapers,but the phone still lags so what difference does it make? My phone is a tool, I don't want to waste hours of my time rooting and flashing roms just to make the phone usable. I won't even get into tablets where Android is 5 years behind iOS.

Well he is telling the truth if you like it or not. I was surprised to see my newly purchased transformer still lags with live wall papers. It's true that android apps look like poop compared to their iOS counterparts. Android on Tablets has a long way to go.

The example videos shown are 100% stock, the phone shown at the beginning is current and that's just rooted nothing crazy with custom icons.

Keep the series going so I can slam this in "iphanboys" face, not to prove superiority, just to prove a point. My opinion the only thing that iphone has better is accessories. I like that you chose to do your review with a Samsung product also. Well i guess it was two Samsung products. (see what I did there?)

I think it's pretty amazing that Android can work on so many devices. When you think about how many different types of processors, ram, memory, screen sizes etc exist and all of the millions of possible combinations. I would say it runs magnificent, Apple just has to worry about a handful of combinations it would be ridiculous if they couldn't get that right (Apple still has issues). Like I said on my video, people always scrutinize Android but does iOS run live wallpapers with widgets and live feeds (social networks) at once? Can iOS even handle it? iOS is nothing but a 4x5 grid, that's it! When iOS can do everything Android can on a similar level without any "lag" then I will say the iPhone is better. Until then, it's still a limited device that can't do everything Android can.

would mind telling what iOS version your Iphone running with?
Not sure that matters much but he said the phone was a 4s I believe so some itteration of 5, which sucks badly by the way. Battery life for the iPhone is about 5 hours of moderate use now

I shouldn't really feed trolls but here goes....

First off when ios gets these things you'll be praising them but until then my android phone responds fine to touch. Android devices can have lag, not because they are inferior but because they properly multitask whereas ios prioritises touch events and doesn't fully multitask.

Second of all if you think ics is five years behind ios you really don't know much about the world other than what apple tell you as its the other way round.

And third, you don't have to flash roms to have a quick phone. In case you don't know this wp7 is as quick as ios and a stock nexus with widgets in use at the time beat a stock wp7 phone recently so if as you claim android is soooo slow it should have lost.

And fourth....please do try utilising facts in your regular sessions of android bashing.

Could you give an example of an ios app whose android version look "like poop" in comparison?

Also could you mention what live wallpaper you use that's lagging? The transformer is known to have a number of issues which the manufacturers claim are driver related and therefore is not a good example but I would be happy to check said wallpaper on my less powerful phone to see if it lags.
