True, and we may already be into the pissing contest you mentioned :biggrin: but you have to compare Apples to apples har har.I'm not kidding myself, and I would beg to differ. I dont see how you not knowing iPhones and not being able to turn it off is even relevant. I certainly dont know how to turn off a Samsung...
Anyways, my point is that my iP4, 6 and 7 all turn off the exact same way, and turn wifi off the exact same way. All of the settings/options are in the exact same location across all three devices. When I back up my phone before porting to a new phone, all of my apps and settings are exactly the same and need zero input (except TouchID needs to be re-set up). I highly doubt that a One+ and S9 and Razr do any of that the same, do they? Like Bond says, Android fragmentation is real.
I have had the same experience on generational Google phones (stock Android) as you have had on generational Apple phones. The interface remain relatively the same and just works. Things are automatically restored to my device when I upgrade my phone, etc. etc.
Saying that things working differently across Android phones from DIFFERENT manufacturers isn't a correct comparison. If Apple opened up iOS to other manufactures, allowing them to make it their own, you'd see exactly the same fragmentation over time. Samsung's Android UI is similar across generations, as is One+, as in LG, etc. But no, not between manufacturers. But that isn't a fault of Android, it is the nature of making it open and available for customization. Confusing for consumers? Maybe, but less so if they stay within brand, and at least they have the option to pick something they like better if they leave brand.
It is like Henry Ford's original statement in the early days of car manufacturing: "Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black." Slightly different context there, but you get my point That is the way it is with Apple. Nothing wrong with that but there is no other Apple/iOS implementation to compare it too.
Sorry fubar... we're likely a ways off your OP already! :haha:
