At least half of all Android users will be able to run it, unlike the 100% of Apple users who won't be able to due to Apple being so restrictive

Its just pathetic that you follow followers.
I prefer following the pioneers.. The leaders.
I have my ifaith. Seems like u sold it to the green gunk in return for a weather widget on the lockscreen.
Moving on, when the iPhone was born it had less functionality than most other phones. Like built in notes or even a calender. Than apple "innovated" those apps and sold them for a $10 upgrade until later made free.
There are plenty of other examples but I'll sum it up with a couple major ones.
Siri wasn't created by apple, it was bought and was actually almost bought by Verizon to be put on flagship android devices.
The IOS notification center is a blatant rip off of the android pull down notification, if you don't think so you are in denial.
Apple is known to put old parts in a shine body and charge premium prices. You will always have old hardware For more than the newest hardware.
Also you think that all of your apple products are more secure but what you fail to realize is that the methods used on Mac and iOS are harder to find and protect against because of the closed source nature of the OS.

Android is much more fragmented... period. We know all you fandroids really love Apple products! You must since so many of you frequent this Apple products forum. It's OK, we understand your love for all things Apple.

Give me a sec to grab a beer, lol, this is beautiful. I am just wondering, will it ever end. Well, for sure, no and Apple and Google will increase and increase their profits and you will still fight over such a marginal gadget, called phone. ......pathetic

I am on this forum because I used to own an iPhone. Sold it and got an android instead though, and I occasionally come back to check up on my work. I used to make icons for themes as you can tell from my amounts of thanks <---
Anyways, I don't blame ya. Android is much more fragmented, but that is if you let it be. When shopping for an android phone, why would you buy a low end one? Buy the latest and greatest and it should run 99.9% of all the apps on the playstore (besides tablets ones obviously). Update for your device waiting to long? Get a Nexus device. Don't want a Nexus device? Simply root, flash, and boom. You're up to date and it took a few minutes.
People think flashing and rooting ruins the experience, as if you have to find a back road to update to the latest android OS, but when you think of it, Google WANTS you to root, and toy around with its OS. It's open source FOR A REASON. With Apple, they push out as many software updates as they can just to block a jailbreak. For Google, they don't care! Go ahead and root your phone. No big deal, it's YOUR phone. It's like buying a computer and the computer manufacture tells you what you can do and not do on YOUR computer. lolwut?WANT ALL THE FEATURES OF APPLE'S BRAND NEW OPERATING SYSTEM iOS 6 RIGHT NOW?

Once you have your iPhone jailbroken it's so much better than a droid. And really you only gotta JB once a year, and thats if you wanna keep up with the current iOS. Also I have never broken an iPhone. Dropped em soaked em, nothing, still good as gold. My Galaxy S2X gets wet for a minute and gone, out like a damn light. So I would say Apple is better overall though it does have it's flaws. And thank god that FB Home BS isn't coming to plague our iOS's anytime soon.. Hopefully never

I've owned ~4-5 Android phones and have yet to break one? Never put cases on them either. Stop using it like a moron and you won't have a problem.
As for the topic on hand, yes there is a lot of fragmentation because there is a large variety of android phones, covering every price point. If you don't want a problem with fragmentation, spend 200-300 to get a top of the line Android phone (comparable to iPhone prices) and you won't have a problem. Ie, GS3, One X, One, Note 2, Nexus 4, etc. It's just stupid to use the free with contract phones as "oMg, itz soo lagy!one lulz android 2.1".

At least jailbreaking my iPhone doesn't neuter it.
Also the power widget is a blatant rip off of SBSettings, barrel had screen transitions way before android launchers did...the list goes on.

The power widget has been implemented to android long before so settings LOL.
And launchers did not copy barrel Lmao!! And if anything, launchers on android support MORE animations. And no it doesn't kill battery.

Rooting your phone will never neuter it. Adding a new custom ROM, is a different story. You're putting an entirely modified operating system on there. Try doing an engine swap in a car and see how issue-less it really is. There are always ROMs that are the same as stock, with less bloat, quicker, better battery life, and will not cripple anything.
And you still didn't disprove my point. iPhone still needs to be jailbroken to do things that an Android phone does out of the box. And you managed to find one tweak....that's made by the same developer, how shocking that it came on Android after!
You mean to tell me that having a widget that easily lets me switch settings is a blatant rip off of sbsettinggs? You're stretching it a bit too far there buddy, it's just common sense that the widget would exist. There's a widget for everything else! The probability of there being a widget that controls settings is pretty darn high.
