In general I think it is a stretch. With Android like with any other OS you need a warming up phase. I remember the struggle I had the first few days with Windows and now I can do anything on a PC.
But there are some things that could be easier. I just spent 2 hours rooting my brand new Nexus 7 (which is my first Android device). It was a struggle. I wish they had 1 button in Android to do that.
