That certainly has its value. Not for me, and many people get an iPad or whatever for each one in the family. But, yes, for those who share it is indeed a welcomed option. I certainly made a wrong post by pointing out negative stuff, while there are positives to Android as well.
Would you like to have more robust and inclusive notifications, lessening the need to open some specific app to get the information?
I don't think the current NC is of much value, and never use it. But the 'number of unread' top right icon is enough for me to open the app, deal with responses or whatever and close the app. I can't say if Androids' notification is any better as I've never seen/tried it.
What about Smart Widgets coupled with the ability to turn various radios on/off without going into the settings dialogue?
Not a problem for me. I have WiFi on, BT off and if I attend a concert or something the Airplane Mode is nearby.
Would you appreciate the ability to set your own app defaults rather than accepting just what your device came with?
That would be nice, although I use all stock apps anyway. I sometimes switch to Bing as preferred search tool, sometimes go back to Google. But I certainly understand the request from people, yes.
Can you think of any benefit to off-line text-to-speech entry for some users?
No, but I'm certain there are people disagreeing with me.
Would you appreciate a faster response to search requests? Those are all possible advantages of the current version of Android over the current version of iOS too.
And that's a good thing. People can choose one over the other. It might become a problem when one wants to switch back and forth, while already having invested in apps. That might be the stickiness issue to this. Heck, that might be my remaining on iOS, at least for the unforeseeable future. But if Apple is going to create a 5" phone **as their smallest option** I'm definitely running away. Because I want to be able to use it with one hand.
