I noticed the fieldrunners icon. Has the game been warped by North Korea so the attacking soldiers wear american uniforms?

then howcome android demand better hardware then ios and wp for the same smoth experience?
i mean the kind of hardware used in todays smartphones are way better then what was used in pc's 10 years ago, and they never lagged like android right of of the box.

Is it really that hard to build a stable os? apple, microsoft and blackberry doesnt seem to Think so anyway.

Android demands a lot of resources when your providing more features for the customers with every major and minor release, hence higher hardware requirements. This made it especially annoying and difficult in the early days of android but has gotten a LOT better over the years.

yeah thats what thay said with windiws vista to, but you know what after we go vista we got win 7 with even more features and less lagg might i ad, and then we got windows 8 and more features, and this is probably the first lag free windows pc OS ever. well the 95 was pretty sweet to back in the day =)
But the argument with many features is bullsh't.

My personal theory is that android is an old OS with many build ons, and google are forsed to continue on the same os for the sake of apps, and the longer they do that they will loose to the younger OS's.

even windows had to scrap DOS evnetually, losing a lot of programs. when will google scrap android for something better?

Still better than Apple's mini sanitary pads, since it has similar or higher ppi for only $200. /s
