tzeshan said:other question is with a skin can Android phone use the Apple EarPods with the ability to scan through music lists and ask Siri questions without touching the Android phone?
Should I claim Apple is bad becuase I can't use gear VR or I can't use micro USB accessories.

I acknowledge Apple is better at updates. I also don't see that large of a problem on Android. Security updates are independent and are released monthly. Most SDK hooks are in play services. It is a problem in reality Google has done a phenomenal job breaking things out of Android to bypass the OEM and carriers. Remember we are comparing apples to oranges. Apple has a vertical intergration this is one of the benefits to that. Google has an open intergration this is one of the downsides to it. No matter what we compromise. With Nexus I don't have to compromise software.
spheric said:It is NOT the same, because that S5 Samsung CANNOT be updated to the latest OS - which is precisely the point of this article: people aren't upgrading to the latest Android versions!
It would be similar if that 5s still sold today were only upgradeable to iOS 8 (though Android L was replaced by M six months earlier than iOS 9 was released).

Also, Im an iOS developer and use dozens of phones at work for testing. Many are older devices that have been upgraded to new os's, and not a single one of them has been "upgraded to un-usability". In fact, in many cases they work better than they did before, as Apple is continually upgrading iOS's background and process capabilities.
So is Google, for that matter. It's just that there many people are functionally unable to upgrade Android devices, so it doesn't matter.
