This one is as old as the infamous quote from Bill Gate "640K ought to be enough for anybody".  The Xerox Gui has nothing do to with the Lisa and original Mac GUI ,the other story about Apple has stole Xerox research is another hard to kill myth, in fact Apple has pay Xerox Corp with shares to use some of their research, and everything SJ and apple's engineer saw at Xerox Parc facility has been retaught from scratch.  They created the first 100% graphical home computers...
 Why are you narrowing on video content only??? Gamut have big implication for ages in digital publishing and having different screens gamut and color representation is the reason why the Colorsync was created at the first place.  With the right colorsync profile in the OS to inform apps how to represent accurate color for a given screen, there is absolutly no reason why you don't want a screen the largest gamut for accurate proofing.
The saddest part of Android is while they modernize the UI to make it on part with the original iPhone, they have keep the archaic JavaVM runtime avenue used on first gen smartphone OS like Symbian and Blackberrys.
 I think most of us don't realize that even if Samsung would have access to all schematics of the A7 from Apple, they still doesn't own the right ARM licences for creating their own core like Apple did.  Also, like you pointed out, you can't by only looking a chips under a microscope determine the ISA and all logical aspect of the chips.
Quote: Don't get me wrong, I do share the same feelings of yours.  There is failed Windows tablet attempts for more than 15 years now, but the dream of having a full Windows on a mobile device is a hard one to kill in people imagination.  To my understanding the reason why all Windows tablet are still a market failure come from the fact that none are better than a conventional laptop at the same price point, and legacy UI or apps cannot be used without a keyboard and mouse...
 I think Windows compatibility is the biggest deal for having a x86 on a tablet and I'm sure Microsoft is lobbying really hard to push this solution, I think this is also why there is near zero interest on having an Intel SoC in a smartphone.
 I do questioned your over reacting impression of calling things broken or crap base on anecdotal impression.   Apple haven't got a free pass for this, as you related your self, Apple made a recall and replaced the top case free of charge, I don't think those issue is enough to utterly call it crap.  Same apply on your assertion about the A7 and iOS7. I've seen so much worst problem in the past, like the unstable for real Quadra 700, the bad power supply iMac G5, the ram...
 Why are you avoiding the conversation? have you any Intel smartphone you can compared with?  On tablet they all need to compensate with bigger battery.  The iPad Air is currently one of the tablets with the best battery life with the smallest battery capacity, same apply for the iPhone 5S.
Too bad it's currently the prime and sole example of a Intel Soc in a smartphone.  2 years ago Clovertrail got the same level of praise of the forthcoming Silvermont and under deliver on actual product, like the nVidia Tegra, they got a lot of hype and praised by the bloggosphere, but got deceiving product at the end.
 Until the Silvermont, every previous Intel attempt was base of Atom architecture without Out of order capability, Silvermont will change this but still base of Atom and Celeron architecture.  As I said, Intel can't win against ARM on effiency with all x86 legacy their CPU needs.
