When you have Apple sticker on the back no one cares about "force closing". ;)

No it is not normal in Android world too, but if it was on iOS world then it would be normal for Apple lovers. Same as Apple says that purple tints on Apple iPhone 5 pictures is the camera's normal behavior or same as Apple says that iPhone 5 scratches out of the box are also normal...

Which phones still force close a lot? I haven't ran into that in about 3 years. Also, the one Apple device in my family seems to do something like that all the time now.

3 years? Really? Dating back to 1.9? Never a force close?

If you believe that, I have some ocean front property in Idaho you might be interested in.

yea, I also remember all the wide reports of force closing on iOS5, and while I havent checked in on it, I bet the same is going on with iOS6. People that pretend apple is somehow magically stable just have their eyes closed.

Nothing like good ol fashioned "compatibility bars" for apps either eh? Ahh.. nothing like black bars on the top n bottom of the screen since iOS apps can not dynamically adjust to resolutions like Android apps can.

Can you provide some of these "wide reports" of Apple force close articles? The difference in app crashing between my work iPhone and personal S3 are night and day.

"The difference in app crashing between my work iPhone and personal S3 are night and day."

Statistics says that iOS apps tends to crash three times more than Android apps.

Until these hilarious statistics are backed up by facts, I'll assume they are being pulled out of fanboys assess.

Statistics made by analytics company: www.crittercism.com

Here: http://www.forbes.com/sites/tomiogeron/2012/02/02/does-ios-crash-more-than-android-a-data-dive/

So, gonna close eyes and ignore it further?

As quoted from your article..

So what does all this data mean? On a basic level, you can see that iOS apps crashed more than Android apps during this time period. But Crittercism’s Levy cautions that this doesn’t necessarily mean that overall iOS apps crash more than Android apps. That’s because Apple had recently released a new version iOS 5 in October. Android’s new Ice Cream Sandwich operating system (Android 4.0), meanwhile, had not been widely released on phones yet at the time of this study. “I expect as Ice Cream Sandwich just launched and the new Nexus S phone launched (during the study), we’ll expect the same situation to occur (with Android) as what happened (with iOS),” Levy says.

Ok, I see that you decide to ignore that.

This quotation from the article is just a author's interpretation and nothing more.
We clearly can see what statistics says, they says that iOS apps tend to crash three times more than Android apps and this doesn't matter how you will try to turn that.

Oh so it's justifiable to base facts off of whatever a piechart tells you. Perhaps in the rest of the article you didn't read, the author stated that the numbers were bulls*it and the graph was made by his sixth grade son in computer class. But because it looks official and was published in Forbes, one of the leaders in mobile technology analysis, it's completely legitimate. Sounds good.

sad fact of misinterpetation.

When google released 4.0 there were some compatibility issues that were very quickly resolved. 4.1 has no such issues. Also, by the time 4.0/4.1 take large chunks of the android pie any compatibility will be long gone. All you have to do is pay attention to the nexus threads online to see if there is an issue. I've been running 4.0 since what.. last december. I dont remember the last time I faced a compatibility issue for an app.. maybe ... last december?

Always misleading this kind of rapport, no mentions about what models got updated and never a singel word about all the missing features that will be left out. Updating just give u a higher number of iOS on the phone, not all the features that come along and what the purpose to update then?
Apple are very good at deceiving peoples and they just got no clue about it.

Older android phones can update to latest if wanted, but alot of features will be cut offed (like iOS to older iDevices) and who want to update, if cant get all the features?
XDA have showed it can be done and not only iDevices.
But no one want a new OS if cant get all the new features.

This may be true, but only devices with a dual core processor can support all the features of iOS6. Since iOS6 really isn't that much of an improvement, iOS6 lacking new features = iOS5.
