Taylor Martin, at PhoneDog, switched from an Android-based HTC Thunderbolt to an iPhone 4, and gives five reasons why. Here’s “stability”:
One area the ThunderBolt has always struggled has been with software stability, and that could easily be said about most other Android devices, especially HTC-made phones. Sense UI is bug-ridden and known to be the culprit for lag and battery drains. The likes of custom ROMs proved to be no better as development for the ‘Bolt has hit quite a few road blocks over the months.
For a PCMag story, I’ve been using an iPhone as my primary phone for a week, and though there are a million things I don’t like about the iPhone this is the one I can’t disagree with. The iPhone just, simply, works better than any Android phone. When you tap something, something always happens. When you press a button, it always registers. There’s little lag, little crashing (and the crashes that do happen are always single-app, not the Earth-shattering everything-crashes that Android is prone to), and it works as it’s supposed to. That’s a big deal.
