Base on my experience with the IPad2, it freezes/lags/apps crash a fair amount - never lived up to the hype for me. My Rezound is rock-solid, but I don't like how Sense forces me to do some things a certain way, much how IOS irritates me.
I believe it almost everyone I know with an iPhone has had issues with it at one time or another. Although the same can be said of people I know with Android phones. I personally never had my Droid Incredible crash when it was stock but since I have rooted my phone I have crashed it a few time which I totally expected too.
So long as tech products are made by humans there will ALWAYS be some issues. So obviously that includes iOS and Android. Until we create some super robot group that makes perfect products and then one day betrays us, we will continue to have issues with our devices. Hopefully they are at a minimum though.
Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!
Hatred is by far the ugliest trait any human can possess (think about it)
I was at the VZW store today and was looking at the razer maxx. A rep was helping me and at some point he let me know he had the Iphone 4s. At some point I pushed the browser icon on the razer maxx and the phone froze up for 3 seconds. He then jumped all over that and said "that's why I'll never own an Android". Haters everywhere!
I think the report leaves out a lot of details. Android phones differ. One model may crash more than others. They're not all equal. Like many others here, I started my Droid experience with the OG Droid the weekend it was released. Being tired of $85+ monthly bills, I then switched to the Motorola Triumph on Virgin Mobile ($25/month). All I can say is that the Triumph has been an absolute piece of junk. The OG Droid was much better. And I'm not talking about reception which is based on carrier, but I'm talking about quality. GPS almost never works on the Triumph. Constantly needs reboots. I miss calls because it loses reception. Wifi works half the time. Constantly gotta restart the browser. etc. etc. etc. BUT....I'm saving $60/month. Considering the savings, the Triumph is worth it (even with all it's headaches). I don't talk much on the phone anyways and have had my fill of apps over the past years. I really don't even install that many apps, just a few. Maybe I'm getting burned out or just frustrated with the issues of the Triumph.
Getting back to topic, this is why the study of which OS crashes more is pointless since there are so many different models of Android phones.
I'm going to lay this down here and call this article / "results" of this complete and utter bullsh*t. I owned a Original Droid and then bought a Droid 3 when my contract was up. I had my Droid 3 for exactly 3 days before I sent it back, and one of my BIGGEST complaints was the crashes that occurred with the device. I have NEVER been so dissatisfied that I actually returned a device in less than three days. While the crashes were definitely not my ONLY complaint, it was one of the major ones. NOT TO MENTION on *more* than one occasion I was unable to make phone calls - including emergency ones - because it just flat out would not connect to the network at all until I rebooted.
Fast forward a bit to the phone that I got in exchange for the D3 - my iPhone 4. While I've not done much with the 4S (some friends have it), I can tell you that without a doubt my D3 AND OD BOTH crashed MUCH more than my iPhone - and I'm a power user, and have my phone connected at the hip.
In the YEAR that I've had it (or just shy thereof) I have had to reboot my phone approximately once a MONTH. Even with my OD I had to reboot at least every week due to SOMETHING on the phone not working right.
Again I say BULL. I hugely question the objectivity and how these "statistics" were obtained. Were they "crashes" as dictated by the OS? If so, I would surmise to say that Android probably just doesn't report as much. I say this because any of the "crashes" I've ever experienced went like this:
"This app has had an error. Please send a message with your support info!"
*app functions flawlessly w/out having it force closed and/or having to close and reopen it*
Also, I'm not anti-Android by ANY means. I severely miss my Google Nav (NO app on iPhone comes even close), and tighter integration with Facebook and Twitter (not to mention being able to post to ANYTHING via the Camera Photo Album app (iPhone just does *not* do that, and it's a huge downfall / fail for Apple). This said, I can't say, BECAUSE of the quality control checks (or severely lacking thereof) that many Android manufacturers have had in the past disuade me against Android in the future. Maybe when the next Nexus comes out I'll change my tune, but as of right now, I'm quite happy with a phone that #1-works, #2-fits in my freaking pocket #3-construction is solid as heck. #4- and I know I'll get blasted for this one, but it's worth mentioning - look at the number of peripherals / accessories that are made for iPhone and now do the same for Android. Talk about mismatch! Definitely will stick with my iPhone & am looking forward to a 4G version (hopefully we'll get one this year *crosses fingers*)
