Yeah, nice job on trolling. As a user of both Windows phone and Android, I have definitely had no problems on either. BTW, your WP device crashing has nothing to do with it being an HTC. WP doesn't allow much modification to the WP underlying architecture, in the sense that Android manufacturers can go wild on customization and putting on their own UI (ex: Sense, Touchwiz, Blur, etc.). I have never had the Android OS crash on me, I have had apps. force close, but from all the apps. that I have used, developers update very quickly (and yes, Android devs. are far more responsive than WP developers).
Errr, yes it did. no they have to follow a certain standard as far as components go. but the quality of manufacturing and the components still varies, and with HTC. it's pretty much lowest sorting cheapest prices, cheapest manufacture that counts.
if you think component quality and production quality matters for product quality and stability, you've got some things to learn.
Rubbish. ICS and JB stock are very stable. I'm running ICS right now and it's very stable. I'm looking forward to getting JB for its butter smoothness too. In every comment you post regarding Android you say it's buggy, laggy, or unstable. I doubt you've even used a modern Android device.
To the OP. if your stock device isn't good enough, you could always install a rom from AOSP.
Sure I've not used a modern Android device. when I bought one two months ago, I decided to buy an old Droid 1
Are there Nexus devices from un-reputable manufacturers?
So far, we have had HTC, Samsung, and Asus produce Nexus devices.
