Could it simply be due to the fact that iOS has the ability to be built with a single piece of hardware in mind, while Android has a TON of different devices and therefore can't integrate it near as much?
Android developers in my opinion are better than apple developers. Apple has better designers perhaps. But the galaxy 2 for example is extremely smooth...the browser is as smooth as the iPhone or smoother! I didn't believe it when I read it online from phone reviewers but I tested it myself and it's true. Too bad the networks it's on sucks.
The one thing I admire about apple is it puts good phones out every time. No rushed phone. In that sense they're better than Android.
I wouldn't make the change to apple just because of the way they conduct business. And to be honest the galaxy nexus is not laggy. It handles big pages better than the iPhone on the browser. Plus its pushing higher resolution, a bigger screen and opens flash content as well.
Google also has better integration with their apps like Gmail and maps. Something apple will never have and something I need.
Not to mention the iPhone has that tiny ridiculous screen. Its nearly pointless for videos. My friends try showing me YouTube videos they have to put their phone a foot from my face. Me on the other hand, I can play videos and people sitting in the backseat of a car can watch it.
Both phones have advantages...but at the end of the day I love Google and dislike apple.
The Iphone doesn't "lag" because it's never trying to do anything but one thing at a time, unlike an android device which is doing multiple things at a time. It's like comparing an Xbox to a Computer, one does one thing extremely well, the other does many things at the same time very well.
My wife has the 4s and it's UI is super smooth but you can't do anything but click on one app at a time, while my Nexus is still super smooth and I can do half a dozen things at the same time.
Show an iphone user widgets, 4g, the larger screen and multi-tasking and they'll be blown away. They just don't know what they're missing because they're stuck in an ecosystem.
