More polished? iOS is so polished that it is actually shaved off.
I used to love the iPhone but now it is absolutely behind andoid on EVERY aspect.
As a former iPhone user I have to agree with you. I have all Apple products in my place except for the phone. I gave the iPhone up to a Galaxy Note 2 and I don't regret it one bit. The Note 2 does things that iOS can only dream of. The screen is absolutely amazing for remote desktop and web surfing and email. I wish Apple would come to their senses and increase that screen size some more. Also, on the Note 2 and other Android devices, you can set the font on the browser to a specific size so you don't have to increase it with your fingers every time you visit a web site. That was very annoying on the iPhone.

I have never had that problem with Apple maps, in my state/surrounding states it works just fine. I do not use "street view" though, so that could be why. I also like Waze much more so than Google maps or Apple maps. I downloaded it when I got my Galaxy S3 as well.
The making phone calls part being so far down the list is an interesting discussion though, because its probably 4th-5th on my list of what I use my phone for as well. Its almost as if we need to change the name from being a smartphone into being a pocket device, because more and more we are changing to this.
You must have a special edition of Apple Maps my brother because that application completely sucks and its broken. When I had the iPhone I tried to use it twice to find addresses that my Note 2 and my 4 year old GPS can find and the Apple Maps simply said it could not find them. That is ridiculous.

Will you still say iOS is more polished when the time comes and it navigates you, say, into a forest instead of where you actually want to go?
And I agree here with you as well. It happened to me. I told Apple Maps to take me to the local Winn Dixie and it drove me 13 miles away from the specified location to some apartment complex....LOL
Apple Maps is useless.
