So why do people actually believe Google is the lesser evil? Because they allow arbitratry code execution in their mobile OS, and therefore must standup guys? They sit on so much exploitable information on a large part of the world's population. It has got to corrupt them at some point in time.

I long for an affordable, secure and non-shitty smartphone without the surveillance bits and with an actual app eco system. Yes, that's a lot to ask.

"long-term stability"

Citation needed. I haven't customized the shit out of my new Nexus 5, but I have experienced the odd freeze-up, requiring a restart. I don't recall ever seeing that on my old iOS device, and quite frankly, the ability to make your UI look like even more like shit is not something I'd choose another time. And while Apple's garden may be walled, Google's is under constant surveillance, recorded for later use.

Everyone says that Android is the bee's knees. I just don't see it.

Well, least corrupted if you look at how corruption is defined in the laws of the land. A lot of the corruption is legalized by law(state sanctioned or state run monopolies, or oligopolies run by politicians) and thus not counted towards the corruption score in international rankings.

That's a lot of conjecture in one post. But then again, conservative shills with their ritual hate of wealth redistribution would write something like that.

Would you care to give some examples from the countries in question? (SE, LU, FI, DK)

I will concede that Spain's problems are vastly different than Greece's. But you can hardly call it a good role model of economic growth. Look at all the empthy new houses, apartments and deserted airports. They failed at reining in the bank sector from committing greed driven harakiri. Along with many other countries.
