    Hmm, you seem to feature iOS a lot. I feel Android being ignored? Being the 2nd largest OS for Smartphones, I believe it also should have a share in the limelight...

          Well I own a Nexus 7 and its the worst gadget ive ever bought. It runs slow the apps are poor quality and my Nexus is running slow even though i shutdown the apps and even reboot the device it still runs like crap. So i bought a iPad and wow everything from the quality of its build to the amazing choice of apps and build quality of the apps are amazing.

          On my iPad i have all the apps i need something i never had on my Nexus oh and i can download youtube videos on iPad cant do that on Android Google locked Android out.
