- Ease of use The UI isn't always as simple as iOS, and it's not very pretty either.
- Speed Froyo runs very smoothly on even older hardware.
- Configurability You can pretty much do everything you want to configure Android to run however you'd like, if you have unlocked hardware.
- Ecosystem (apps, drivers, etc.) Plethora of apps, but not many are very high-quality. Market is confusing and cluttered.
- Openness Android is the most open of all mobile operating systems, but it's not really *that* open.
Froyo is now the most common version of Android and is still the version that many phones ship with. It's fairly feature-complete, but not as refined as Gingerbread (2.3). Luckily, it's generally very stable and quick, especially on the latest hardware.
