No self control
Downloading crap I dunno how they found.
Customizing things they don't understand
Thankfully Google is listening, changing and hiding stuff better. Fixing Dev options, unknown sources amd the new lollipop has simple settings and advanced which is nice.
Now we are stuck with giant walls of legislation that they created to profit off of. Same with our cell companies, its pretty sad...
Just wait till the merger shits really gonna hit the fan.
Most of the ones that fail are the cheap clearance, no name ones, the good Samsung and Intel ones are developing a great track record.
But on topic, the rovers are all custom and it's been 10+ years, i believe they already know about this flaw now and they have found ways around it with newer flash memory.
You have to wait for manufacturers to put their bloatware into it
Then you have to wait for the carrier to add more bloatware
Then 6 months later you get the now outdated update....
I switched to custom roms long ago, I get the update within 24 hours of Google releasing the source.
Moral of the story, phones and android would have a lot better rep if they took out all the bloatware. That's why Google's been changing rules in order to fix this problem. 9 out of 10 times your waiting for the manufacture or carrier for the update.
I have been on it since the source was released and it doesn't have all the fancy moded in tricks yet but it's looking very promising, I love that it includes tasks I had to use tasker for before lollipop and that my battery lasts longer. IMO the biggest problem with it hasn't been the OS but lazy app companies not updating their apps to be compatible for lollipop soon as it became "official" they should be updating their apps. t's funny how the small teams with crazy complex apps already updated yet the muli-million / billion dollar companies still haven't.
I still sub spotify sometimes for 5 bucks and I tried apple radio and it was a joke IMO. People might be like 2 services are you crazy.. Right cuz 10 dollars for a full month of any song I want is really expensive you probably spend more on fast food lol.
