That is what we call the iSheep mentality.

the problem is claiming that the phone is the best. it might be the best for you. but a billion users out there picked android over it. sure, a large number of these users might have wanted to buy an iPhone but couldn't because it was just too expensive for them. so here's the thing. android is doing to smartphone market what windows did to pc market. making it affordable and gettable. my paanwala can afford a smartphone today because of android.
Apple was an ass back then. apple is an ass today. and they are now working with microsoft doing superass things. read about rockstar here.
and as i mentioned in another thread of mine... nexus 5 has finally gotten one long time iphone user (a friend of mine) to switch to android. and he has been loving it since he got the device in his hands 2 days ago. :)
also it is good to know that you can almost buy 2 nexus 5 for the price of 1 iphone 5s.

Yes. The people at the Google down there are all saints!!
It must be a nice feeling when all those billions of people who chose android over iPhone are actually carrying a stolen product. And Rockstar, licensing technology! Like Google was not in the bidding war.

Please correct me if I am not correct but
Google was invited by MS to join the group who eventually won the Notel's patent bid but they (snobbishly) decided not to be part of the group. They than decided to go in the bidding war on their own and eventually stopped bidding at around $4.4 billion (or something like that) and the other group eventually won. They than came out in public telling every one that how the other group is anti innovation :)
Google knew they were far behind at the patent scene and to make up for that they bought Motorola Mobility for around $12 billion and we all knew that after being acquired by Google, Motorola Mobility has already sued Apple over several mobile technology related patent infringements.
Although I agree that over one billion people have adopted Android and there must be something appreciable with the Operating System that so many people have been adopting it but you are making a mistake of comparing Android, the operating system with iPhone, the device

Further being adopted by 100 billion people is a measure of popularity of the system and not its quality. If I ask you to compare the smart phone owned by your paan wala with an iPhone 5s (please do not consider the price difference for a moment) which one do you think is better from performance perspective? I here also agree that there might be phone which are better than iPhone 5s but certainly not all of one biillion androids phones are better than iPhone.
As an analogy please consider the fact that Maruti sells tens of thosands of Swifts's every year but does that make it the best car in the world? Is Maruti ought to price its car competitively despite the fact that people any way queue up to buy a new swift? Does that make Maruti a bad company in your eye?

1 of my colleague just bought iPhone 5S. The phone is simply amazing! If only it was 4.5~5 inch, it would been great.
After looking at iPhone 5S, I could say-
Android = Maruti
iPhone = Mercedes
Windows Phone = Ferrari :pleasantry:
