When buying an android device, especially anything other then the NEXUS lines, don't expect speedy patches, updates or new iterations anytime soon. Not to mention the fact that apple supports their devices with new software for at least 3-4 generations/years (iphone 4 still gets new OS updates, although ios7 might cripple the phone speed wise they still make the effort to update it anyways)....Android devices your looking at 1-1.5 years of support if your lucky........
How many developers out there actually think it's a good idea to do major code releases over incremental updates? Not many.

What you have also failed to explain is how increasing the version # would make Android a better product, or how it has made iOS a better product.

Just to give you an example: ICS was 4.0. Jelly Bean was 4.1. There is a huge difference between 4.0 and 4.1. But apparently it only counts if they had chosen 5.0 instead?

The fact that Apple released several iOS's that probably didn't deserve a change to the major version number means nothing. All it means is that you have bought the Apple hype.


Your concerns about lifetime and fragmentation are completely legitimate, but it also points out that the version #s have very little to do with the actual changes that occur (ie. Android evidently changes enough that your phone will stop working after 2 years, and yet you claim that they haven't changed enough on the basis of their version #?).

incredible response

another point to add: if you want constant updates, you could just buy a google phone which all of them get at precisely the time the OS is released

but seriously, awesome above post

Looks like you can order the 5S online from Telus if anyone is interested:

https://shop.telus.com/iphone.php/?I...iphone5cBuynow

Have to wait 2-3 weeks for delivery though, starts at $229 for the 16gb, no activation fee. But the contracts are garbage.

Yeah, that's another great phone. Still prefer the note 3. the shit you can do now with the s-pen is ridiculous. And that huge screen is amazing.
