why droids are eating apples for lunch.
iphone vs. droids
"Google's market-share rose so quickly because their OS is FREE. It's nearly impossible to compete with free "
That is partially true. It was free and that helped, but it was mostly because it was open. You can get anything you want, vs the one phone fits all model of Apple. Up until 2012, Android was inferior, but still outselling IOS for those reasons. Now, its actually a much better OS than IOS and you can still have options, and its free.

- Flexibility in OS (Tons of Custom ROM's, etc)
- Flexibility in hardware (qwerty models, removable batteries, larger models, smaller models, high end models, mid range models, cheap models)
- Micro SD card
- Micro USB (Like every other phone made by every other manufacturer on planet Earth for the past for years, except of course, Apple)
- Plug and play as a flash drive to copy files
This list has alot to do with why Android is outselling IOS 5 to 1 and growing. iPhone just has WAY to many things missing for a high end phone.
