Im pretty sure Android gets crap because for the longest time the majority of their figures were based of $50 Chinese pieces of **** running android 2-2.2...and lets face it, the numbers are high because of the Chinese masses contributing to the very open (read hackable) mobile OS...

The platform is already independently reviewed as being the most malware ridden platform available and from a developer point of view even though it has a massive piece of the market share, most developers are making significantly less thaan they do on iOS....

You know as well as everyone else that until droid 4.1 the lag and stutter and performance was ridiculously bad....and even more recently Google has eye balled the likes of Acer for daring to release a Chinese version of what was originally Android basically threatening to cut them off if they didn't stop releasing...

Sure Samsung and HTC have done a very excellent job with their flagship phones but in reality its all because they wanted to get a toe into the mobile OS market and this was the most open platform i.e. open source (kinda) that they could get in and hack around with because tha laternative to this and prior to them getting on board with Android they had shithouse Symbian type crap with a different skin every phone that was released and NO APPS...

I think, generally speaking of course, that these are some of the reasons droid gets cained....

its also funny to note that as soon as Apple mauled Samsung Google quietly ran over to Acer and began stroking them?? and how they really really really don't like Amazon kindle even though that's based on droid as well....kinda crazy don't ya think???

speaking of fragmentation, look at w$, they have at least 3 'environments' right now with their brand "new" OS. One for tablets, one for desktop and one for phones. They cant see each other properly, only in the "cloud". And if they can share something between, need a "proxy" program, which makes the compatibility useless by definition. In the other hand, Android EVERYTHING is transparent, where it shares in between without need anything else more than a cable or an ip. Nothing proxy like itunes and yet another thing that m$ copy from apple (oh great idea!).
Android would grow up more than they think, not only with the 3rd quater of the market but just like everything. And remember, its OPEN SOURCE and FREE.

dude what you smoking??? 3 environments...u mean the only platform that can seamlessly play nice on three screens??? what do you mean cant see each other properly??? I mean what do you base that on exactly...just because everything works seamlessly through cloud doesn't mean it cant work any other way like nfc, wifi lan etc...

why don't you try connecting your Droid PC, phone and gaming console together ...oh wait they don't produce 2 of those...

when the droid idiots spend a lot less time fingering their phones and actually using a computer to work on and produce something we might sort out the non stop wanking these people engage in...

its a freaking phone, get over it and get back to whatever social not working you were up to before you shat in the comment box...

That fragmentation bit is BS. None of the top 4 mobile OSes have 100% of the user base using the latest version, yet Android is the only one who gets crap for it.

Indeed i would understand if the majority of apps only worked on Android 4.0+ however most apps will work on Android 2.2 and up, which was released over 2 and a half years ago.

Microsoft shills still blather on about fragmentation, and Android phones are still selling in massive numbers. How many years does Android have to blow Windows Phone away for before you admit that fragmentation is nothing more than a boring buzzphrase that means nothing to consumers?
