For me it is. I never said it was the best industrial design for everyone. Or did I?
Design taste is totally a personal choice. I love the iPhone 5 looks and feel, but you will never see me saying it's the best. Or should I only like Android phones? (Because I also think the HTC ONE X looks marvelous).
Why are you so confrontative with other's choices?
You should like what you want to, don't let some retard like me on an internet forum change your perspective. I hate iOS for a cell OS, while my girlfriend is about to purchase a new iPhone 5...
I personally use both a lot, nearly every day over a few different devices (ipad, ipod, nexus and iconia). So to each their own. iOS is consistent across EVERYTHING, pads, pods, tablets, even OSX is getting close. My SGSII, nexus 7 and Acer Iconia, while all running android, all operate COMPLETELY different while still being somewhat similar.
In my humble little bubble of a world every phone would run android OS and every tablet would run iOS. and every computer would be running a linux kernel. Thats just me, thats whats reliable and functional and works for me. Im also incredibly frugal. I dont like spending $800 on a 6x3 inch piece of metal I'm likely to break or lose. my $250 SGSII outright is a much better option. I can replace it 3 times and still be on top.
I like how many devs on android offer free side-load apps on their development blog, while their play listing costs money... Things like that, the flexibility. It comes at a price though. Learning curve for android is likely as steep as it was for linux.
I personally find iOS to be ridiculously expensive for its featureset these days. In 2007 it was the absolute best bang for your dollar. These days android has superseeded it in flexibility, windows in performance. If it weren't for jailbreaking to allow SBsettings, XBMC, barrel, quick-toggles, and the many more talented 'under the table' iOS devs, there would be no way I would ever touch iOS again.
my 2006 macbook and 2007 mac mini which hardly ever see any downtime are working as good today as the day I bought them from the apple reseller. Very few people can say that about any computer.
