I applaud everyone's efforts here at approaching this incident with skepticism. Just makes me value my membership here all the more.
I hope no one here reads this thread, especially my comments, as saying that iOS drools.
iOS, by design, does allow for app complexity and performance optimizations for those complex apps that Android simply cannot touch, as of the time of this post, and it's possible that may never change.
But with that righteous reputation has come the popular memes that it is unassailable on many levels, and that is false. The degree is less important than that fact, and it's important to consumers and potential buyers.
Put in the win column for both iOS and Android what they have earned, but put in the draw column that which is equally true.
iOS, like Android, can have force closes and lookups.
iOS, like Android, has security weaknesses. I will maintain that Android may be weaker, but neither is immune.
No need of me to repeat again that the perfect phone doesn’t exist, yes?
