If you even TRY to argue that IOS stock is more configurable than Android OS I strongly recommend that you lay down the crack pipe, take a few steps back and then see about help. You can't argue that IOS notification system didnt suck prior to IOS 5x and even now it does not compare to Android 4.1.1, which they continue to struggle to "improve/innovate/whatever the want to claim it as" their poor notification system.Not a waterboy for Android OR Apple.

I also see no issue with notification center. It receives notifications. I mean it does what it's suppose to do. And really your entire post validates my posts. iOS is just easier. There really shouldn't be a huge Learning curve to learn a phone.
When I got my s3 was excited. Woohoo look at all of these settings. Once I was done playin with all the new I found myself irritated that things didn't run as smooth and as together as iOS.
You will probably argue with me but not sure how you can argue with my opinion. I feel iOS is better than android because iOS does what I need it to, it looks awesome and is stream lined with all my other apple products.
To me android is best suited for people that feel the need to tinker with setting and such. I don't even jailbreak because I like the way my phone runs with out the jailbreak.

They are not as intuitive as most believe. If you are coming from a BB there is still a learning curve. Heck, even our prestigious grand poobah can't make a call on one the first try or two.
I've had the 4 and 4s. They were nice, compact phones that were great music players. They just didn't meet MY needs.
My wife has a personal RAZR MAXX and for work a 3GS (don't ask, somebody with AT&T business accounts apparently needed to move a bunch of old phones). She absolutely hates the 3GS (stock). I haven't looked at it closely, but think it is on the latest IOS version it can run. It runs it......barely. Her battery never lasts her a full day at work.
As for streamlined... I HATE that abomination called iTunes. My brother recently got a new 4S on AT&T, and I had to spend a while on the phone instructing him how to make custom ringtones from his music collection. He wanted to know how long it took me to make mine and I told him about 40 seconds. Longest part was deciding which section I wanted my on-phone application to use. I have an iPad I like, but have not had any Android tablets (personal) to put through the paces with to see if I want to convert over on the tablet format. The iPad is doing everything I need it to do ( other than being processor/memory limited).

I have to agree with subywrex. it's a matter of opinion. For ME, android is nifty but when I want reliable I need my iPhone. I had a friend lend me a Samsung galaxy s2. I learned how to root and flash roms. I used it for a few days, and honestly speaking it just lost it's magic. There was no "wow" factor. I really really wanted to like it.
I don't care (enough) for quad core processors or 2 gigs of ram (maybe these are things YOU look for when looking for a new phone). Simplicity is king for me. Again it just comes down to PREFERENCE. I'll admit android does have some features that I would love to have on my stock iPhone. But in the end it's just not enough to make me want to make the switch (yet).

When someone is use to physical buttons taking them away causes confusion. I mean my 2 year old daughter knows how to unlock my phone and iPad swipe through pages open folders and open a game she likes. Lol
Not saying that the same cant be done for android cause its same basic concept. But iOS is far more intuitive than android. It took me two phone calls to even figure out how to get back to the call I was in. And I'm not just an average user. I'm very much a tech geek and understand technology.
But to each there own. 👊👍
