The battery is non removable n my Nexus and even turning of everything that makes a phone usable its life was still awful compared to the iPhone.
The battery on my Note is both removable and lasts longer than my Iphone did. I can also pack several for multiday trips out into the wilds. At least with Android you have the option of a removable battery.
I prefer my device to be secure rather than wide open to hacking and I've never had Apple pull an app whereas to install any Android app it asks for permissions which, in lots of cases I just was not prepared to give.
Android is secure, its the user installing dodgy apps that causes the problem (as it is for windows etc) and tbh i would rather have the option of being able to sideload apps at my discretion rather than being walled into a currated nursery. There are quite a few permission managing apps that can block uneccesary permissions, I use xprivacy, but there is also pdroid and lbe.
Again, Apple doesnt let you fine grain what an app has access to, its all or nothing and some ios apps are mega invasive (facebook springs to mind as one).
Customization? I can't be bothered with the amount of work involved. Nothing 'just works' like it does on the iPhone, Android just makes everything more difficult, from when you type in your 4 digit pass code and nothing happens until you realise Android expects you to hit the enter key as well (why?) it just goes downhill.
I never have a problem with passcodes or enter buttons, must be the way your device is set up, on mine I tap in the 4 digits and it unlocks without enter being pressed. I would also argue that itunes makes everything much more slow and complicated than just mounting the device as a removable drive. No flash video is a real negative as well, there goes half the video streaming sites available online.
I guess we'll have to agree to differ, I'm sure you will never buy another iPhone and I'm fairly certain I am not masochistic enough to buy another Android device so I'll just say good luck. So long as your happy with your device and I'm happy with mine.
It would be a sad world if we all wanted exactly the same.
Yup, tis like wine and women
. Good luck with your new device.
