The difference between android and iOS is that if an app is targeted to the latest version of iOS, your 4-year-old phone (iPhone 3GS) can't update. Everyone else can update the day the software is released.

On Android even some phones that are less than a year old can't update, or have a lengthy wait before they can do so.

Don't even mention firmware OS updates. Talk about app compatibility, where there many apps on an Android phone that won't work on another. I had a Sidekick 4G, but you'd have to have a Samsung Galaxy S2 or S3 in order to work with a good app. It was so frustrating for me at the time. That's why I'm a full iOS and OS X user because of update and compatibility.
