He was asking, so..
Ignorance, apps are more "usable" on android..? Not only is that hilarious, but it illustrates you've never picked up a recent Nokia WP8 and used it. Apps are hilariously easy to install/delete and use.
Matter-of-fact.. any windows app has to meet a high quality standard to begin with, that is why their "app store" was built slowly, with quality apps. Instead of the piecemeal, hodge-podge startup apps strewn throughout android marketplace.
Lastly, both Microsoft & Apple's eco systems are far above, & superior.. to the ultra-fractured Android one.
That is without question. And something you unwilling to admit. but you don't see mom's going out and buying Free windows phones for their kids, do you..? No brainer that android = cheap = free. Because it's built on a free OS. With a LOCKED marketing campaign.
Yes, there might be a few high-end quality android phones. But they won't be supported in a few years, & still only "as good" as apple/ms.
If people are happy, then none of this matters. Because we are talking pre-purchase decisions.
Kids grew up (over the last six years) on android, now they are on a forum. Most are fans of android, cuz they don't know anything else.
