we will begin seeing the demise of Google Android.
We understand that you, as an Android pundit, might not understand these concepts. Smartphones do far more than make telephone calls.Software Updates
. Frankly, this is one of the dozen major issues with Google Android. Google just doesn't care about consumers they care about their customers, the advertisers. Buying an Android-based smartphone today virtually guarantees you won't have Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for another twelve months, but most likely never.NFC Support
. Millions of people aren't walking into restaurants and paying for their meal with their Android-based smartphone. NFC Support is a gimmick.Offline Dictation
. I guess you need offline dictation when Google sells you a mobile device that isn't really mobile.Great Maps and Navigation
. 2D and 3D views with Flyover and voice-activated, voice-guided turn-by-turn dynamic routing navigation and Yelp! integration that displays appropriate detail based on the zoom level in one Map! When will Google catch up?Notification Center
. Are you saying Google's notifications aren't very good?Voice Search
. Siri is absolutely amazing! Too bad that third-class wannabe from Google sucks so hard.
You better get down of your high horses right now because you are acting exactly like the typical stereotypical pretentious Apple fanboy. You aren't any better than anyone else just because you are using Apple products. For your info, I was a happy owner of a 3G and 3GS, I own an iMac and a MacBook Pro as well as an iPad. Am I sufficently qualified to express my opinion, sir? Do I have your permission?
Ecosystem : you are defining iTunes, but all that applies to Google Play as well.
Updates : I'm buying Google Phones, my Nexus S is still supported after 2 years.
NFC : it's a gimmick until Apple puts it in their next phone
Dictation : gratuitous statement
Maps : people always say here that you shouldn't compare that isn't even out with something that has been out for years. You obviously didn't try the beta... Again, your trolling is a total fail, everything you are talking about already exists on Google Maps (plus street view (yeah you don't use it I know)), 3D is soon coming, and, what? Yelp?? Lol that only works in the US, it's not as complete as Google adresses.
Notifications : on ICS they are already better tham on iOS (single tap all-erase, better sorting). They are even better on JB (direct mail, messages, g+ fast answers in the notification tray.
Siri : it's so great that it's still called a beta, it often fails, it's uncapable of answering a simple question, it's uncapable to understand "itinerary to Wall Street" from outside the maps app.
