Apple would have probably focused on providing Nexus devices or phones with vanilla Android in general for the best experience. But then again, it might lock the bootloader or not release kernel sources if we're going by its current policies.

Google making an iPhone would be different. It would be easily be getting OTA updates as soon as they are ready and would release the iOS source code and APIs. Also will probably loosen up the policies of the App Store but in turn might invite some unsightly apps.

I never really understood why people cared so much though, since it's not like your phone has 1080P pixels.

Well, at least we're transitioning to 720p displays and playback through HDMI is already possible.

Nobody answered my previous question.

I don't believe iOS5 + iPhone 4S is jailbroken yet. So my phone is currently not very "customizable", just the way Apple likes it. I shouldn't have to wait for a new jailbreak to be setup everytime the OS is updated. And that's the point they're trying to make, that with Android you don't have to in order to do most things.

Mmm, I see...

I'm not so sure about that. iCloud is pretty top notch, it covers every base and does it very well. Android's might work well, but I'd have a hard time believing it's as good as iCloud, without a direct comparison.

Interesting Side note: the jailbreakers had a patch for the vulnerability a day before apple did.
Ah, I see. Thanks.

Mmm, I'm not so sure about that but I haven't tried it. I'll give it a go sometime. The only real benefit is when you output it to a 1080p HDTV.

I did, although not directly. There's a tethered jail break, but not an untethered one.

Many people don't want to root/jailbreak.

In other words you're telling me that my argument is weakening my argument lol. and jjsoviet has the whole rooted vs jailbroken thing down pat it seems. Read that.
I root my androids so it's only fair that i compare my phone to a jailbroken iphone
without rooting my androids is a POS

Wasn't it Jailbroken since beta?
you do have to wait on android for ROM devs to get their hands on a base and then do their thing to it, port it, etc.
Like ICS for example. I'll be waiting 6+ months b4 it's available for the ROM that I want.
I'm sure I can probably find a ICS AOSP ROM sooner but I LOVE the ROM that I use now so I doubt I'd even want to use a AOSP ROM in the mean time

If evolution were have been up to Apple, we would all be broke apes.[/I][/B]

Android, IMO, has come a long way sense the beginning. OS changes, hardware upgrades, hell, I remember when the DX came out 8MP camera, HDMI out, 720p playback, that was over a year ago etc.. And the 3G was still out, now Android is busting out, (and has been for a while) all the DualCore phones etc, and Apple just now got around to it?

Good read though, thanks OP!
Yeap I agree. Heck I still have my Droid X staring at me in the face sitting in it's desktop cradle playing a slide show and streaming Scanner Radio Pro. It's a beast of a phone.

Now I'm getting a Droid X2 as a gift on November 1st. Can't wait for Tegra 2 baby. That's not to say my Droid X is slow by any means. But some super elite games, like Dungeon Defenders does make the X cry with it's aging GPU. So Tegra 2 insides are going to be baller. It's my favorite feeling phone and to me one of the best quality made hardware phones ever made. But we all know that Motorola knows how to make very good hardware.

The jump from Android 1.5 to Android 4 is a massive upgrade, and all in a very few years it's received so many upgrades and features.

Aside from minor hardware upgrades each generation and a few additions to iOS Apple really hasn't done much. But when you look at just how far Android has come, well it's a no brainer.

Minor hardware upgrades and a few additions to iOS? .... that's ridiculous. There's been massive improvements in iOS each year, and also big improvements in the last few iPhone's.

I must have missed where you said that, but either way, I think the important part of the argument is customization in general.

Any person I've met that heavily customizes their phones or tablets knows about rooting/jailbreaking. If you're going to heavily customize your phone, I assume it's safe to say you'll most likely root/jailbreak it. Regardless, the phones are comparable and competitive with each other as far as customization goes.

Also, wasn't a law passed officially saying that Jailbreaking your phone cannot void your warranty? If so, what's the difference if it is rooted?
