Although the author of these articles is trying to keep a certain perspective on the comparisons, I find the subtle pro-Apple leanings funny. This article says essentially, "Apple Notes: simple on the surface, powerful underneath." A couple weeks ago, "OneNote: powerful but needs Office to shine." Usually an Apple product is touted as, "great, with some hiccups", whereas non-Apple products are usually, "nice, but falls short." Rose-colored glasses when it's Apple, slightly turd-colored glasses if not.
I've only used Apple Notes on my iphone, and thought it was a pretty lame to-do list thing only. I didn't realize it had powers comparable to OneNote or Evernote. But per this article, a lot of it has to be structured on a Mac. I've been happy with OneNote, and there is less that I have to do on my personal Mac or work PC that I can't do on my phone. And OneNote updates on the fly between devices just as Notes does.
