Not as seamless and my wife's iPhone, but close enough for me

And not as long either, Google only provides updates for 18 months. If you buy a phone on a 2 year contract (as many people do) and you get the new Nexus the day it is released, you still have 6 months in which you will not receive (security) updates.

Completely unacceptable.

No, you do it like apple, ask it when the app uses it first, that way the user can place the request in context. If you click on 'upload photo' in a social media app and it asks for permission to access your photo's, you know that makes sense and grant permission. If a calculator app asks the same when you start it, you know something's fishy. Asking upfront is the dumbest thing ever, the user hasn't even started the app once so has no way of knowing if the requested permissions make any sense.
