Default Still waiting for Android to come of age

Several areas in which Android still hasn't got it right.

-The best selling Android, perversely, makes the cheapest looking chassis of most phones on the market, including other OS's.

-OEM's continue to ship brand new phones with ICS to this day, despite JB being out for half a year.

-many OEM's leave their past phones standing out in the cold for OS updates even if they're only a year old

-OEM's are slow to update phones that are going to receive latest Android versions, and carriers make a bad problem worse

-many users are apologetic for the OEM and carrier delays rather than demand better service, they roll over and defend it.

-The closest thing to a pure Android (Nexus) has prompt updates but doesn't get LTE or expandable memory. Conversely another phone that offers a pure OS and OEM experience - iPhone - DOES get all of the following:
larger internal memory offerings
also receives updates straight from the source
good build quality

-The Nexus 4 stock situation is a fiasco

Android is getting there, but it's slow and they're not quite there yet.
