- Ease of use Has a little bit of a learning if you're coming from iOS but it's relatively simple to use.
- Speed It's snappy but there are random spurts of slow downs. I'm convinced at this point that Android somehow sucks with keeping a data connection up though.
- Configurability From the keyboard to the launcher you can configure it anyway you want!
- Ecosystem (apps, drivers, etc.) Yes, the number of apps are great but a lot of these apps (even Google apps) need a lot of polishing!
- Openness Compared to other mobile operating systems, this is the most open OS there is!
Android is good because it's open and very customizable but my patience is being tested because Google doesn't seem to polish everything about it. From little graphical glitches to the perpetual "sending" box in Google Voice, Android really is starting to point towards iOS. I like Android a lot because of how Google built everything right in. But honestly, if it wasn't for Google Voice integration, I'd probably jump ship to iOS at this point.
