Take a look at Pre- iPhone Android OS vs. Post IPhone Android OS, the change is drastic, originally it looked like something that ran on my LG Rumor
It has nothing to do with Apple per-se. It has EVERYTHING to do with the fact that actual hardware and the way phones were built changed, technology improved, got smaller, we got better touch screens etc, and really, none of that is thanks to Apple but those manufacturers like Samsung and others who actually make this hardware. Android, just like any other OS, evolves through time adopting to the new hardware and the way people interact with them. If anything, the only positive thing I give to Apple is that they managed to use their powerful marketing machinery to make mainstream consumers adopt it quickly.
The fact, that's undeniable to everyone but the biggest Apple fans that simply refuse to believe that anything can be better than Apple is that Android as an OS is and has been FAR superior to iOS in any way you want to look at it. Whether it's because Apple wants to control everything on iOS, or because Apple just didn't evolve iOS fast enough, no matter what it is, Android has always had things done better and had tons of features that iOS didn't. With ICS that difference is night and day.
