Apple products are OK if you want to be locked in to what they allow you to do. You can't even choose a different keyboard to use on an iPhone for example without jailbreaking it. You can't have widgets on your homescreen either. All pretty poor and restrictive imo and certainly doesn't make them the best, unless not being allowed to do pretty normal things = better.

Can't say I've ever had a problem. Have had Samsung (Android) stuff in the past. Currently I've got a Nexus 4. It runs pure Android, I find that even better, as Samsung tend to add some of their own bloatware.

Just the fact that I couldn't use SwiftKey means I won't go near Apple.

This is why I will always buy an Android device; no matter who made the phone or tablet, it will be Android.

I'm not locked into anything on any of my Apple products. I use a third-party bowser, third party email client, etc. I use iTunes because I love it and it works with my wireless, distributed speaker/media system at home where I can switch one or more sets of speakers in any room on or off using my phone or tablet for music/video around the house in every room (using Apples built-in Airplay system). I could, at great expense, get a third-party wireless speaker system...


You may be able to do all of the above, but Apple do apply restrictions in comparison to Android. As I said earlier you can't even use a third party keyboard.

Plus - you may not know this, but all web browsers in the app store must use old Safari engines, rather than their own engines used in the desktop browsers. That's why Opera is only a "mini" browser on iOS, due to it's restrictions with browsers.
Therefore, as a result, Safari is the quickest out of the bunch - so really you're again being forced to use stock products (other browsers aren't as fast as Safari).

A quote from the Tom's page:
Before we begin, we have to touch on one key fact that makes iOS unlike any other popular operating system today: the strict walled garden. You see, Apple mandates that any third-party Web browser sold in the App Store must use the stock WebKit rendering and JavaScript engines.

That's right folks, they're all WebKit browsers. And not just different WebKit browsers like Chrome and Safari on the desktop, either, but complete mobile Safari clones.
