My primary phone is the iPhone. I love the beauty of it. But I wish it did all the things my Android does, I really do.

Speaking to Dan Lyons in an article comparing the iPhone to Android devices, Apple(s aapl) co-founder, Steve Wozniak points out the relative limitations of Apple’s iPhone. Woz makes the case made by many smartphone power-users, suggesting the iPhone is still a great device for most people, but with a little effort and understanding, more can be done to an Android (s goog) phone. Greater customization and user control have always been key selling points for Android devices; both the high-end smartphones and even the low-cost units.

Another interesting tidbit from Lyons’ article: unlike me, Woz prefers the Motorola Droid Razr (s mmi) over the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Really, Woz? Are you running a custom ROM or are you suggesting that Android 4.0 isn’t as good as its predecessor? Oh well; that’s the beauty of Android: To each his or her own!

  1. I actually prefer the DROID RAZR to the Galaxy Nexus, as well. For one, the hotspot service is much more stable on the RAZR than the Nexus. I’m also not a fan of some of the menus and settings reorganizations of ICS, especially the new launcher.
