"you'll soon see the real reason why the Android platform has so many phones in the wild"
It's about choice. It's about competition. It's about all those things that will make America... (sorry, scratch that)
There's undoubtedly a lot of crappy Android phones on the market but there's also a lot of great phones among them. My current Moto Play Z is the greatest phone I ever had. Great battery life, SD storage, dual sim and everything works smoothly and reliably. At least as good as any Apple product but plays much better with others.
Did I mention it's also a lot cheaper?
