I want to own a good Android device, I really do, but its just not quite there yet...
Android 2.2/2.3 I just didn't like one bit and felt very sluggish, unpolished and the upgrade path for Android devices being what it is, I'm not willing to drop $600-700 on a phone that won't upgrade to the latest OS in a year. But when Honeycomb was released I decided to purchase a Xoom... Wow, was that the biggest purchasing mistake I've made in a while. It was complete garbage, I couldn't browse the web for more than 15 mins without the browser crashing, especially when visiting Motorola's own support forum. I kept it as long as I could in case an update was released to fix the problem, but that didn't materializes within the return period.
More recently I was going to purchase an Apple TV but instead grabbed a Pivos Xios that runs Ice Cream Sandwich... So far that has turned out to be another major mistake. The UI is garbage for the TV, even with the "sense" remote which acts like a mouse (but only works in a limited number of apps). Apps don't scale to the TV size well at all, the fonts are either too small or too big, icons too small or too big, or there is a ton of wasted space. The device itself is stable, but apps crash all the time, especially Netflix and many other video apps and they are all extremely slow to use, it can take 5-10 seconds to see a response just from clicking on something in Netflix. For a box designed to watch movies this is obviously unacceptable... The only exception so far has been Google Play which seems to work flawlessly (and fast), so the capability is there, just the apps are not up to par. Unfortunately I missed my return window on this device, so its likely going to collect dust after I grab an Apple TV.
The Nexus 7 tablet looks nice and the price is definitely right, so I'm likely going to buy one once the local store has them in stock, but being burned several times already, I'm understandably quite skeptical still... It seems like Google has finally got the OS to a fast/stable point with Jelly Bean, its just a matter for the app developers to catch up.
There is no doubt though, in my opinion the Android app quality has yet to compare to the iOS app quality. Sure there are the odd high-budget apps like Angry Birds or something that is virtually identical on either platform, but the apps I use on a regular basis on my iPhone have no equivalent on Android yet.
You can't fault me for not trying, I own an iPhone and iPad because they just work and they have everything I need, but I hate many of the things Apple does and I would like nothing more than to see them fail, but I'm just not willing to give up my iPhone/iPad until there something at least equal or better.
