I just spent two weeks investigating and fixing iPhone and Android devices.
I'm not objective obviously, but I can honestly say that having put aside the money to buy an Android tablet I veered away dramatically when I actually started trying to use one. (I'd intended on buying the new Samsung Note 10.1 2014 but the user interface is incomprehensible - even for Android trained store staff).
I ended up buying the latest iPad. But have found it to be atrocious. You can't run two things at once. You can't access the file system, and most configuration settings are simply not comprehensive enough. You can download lots of apps but only if you sign up to Apples mind removal scheme.
The truth is that if you take away the app advantage of Android and iPhone you're left with dross.
I can only assume you haven't used or investigated say the latest Z30. It's light years better than the competition. When BlackBerry finally releases 10.2.1 for the Z30 it will hands down be the best handset on the market.
And yes. I'm in a reality distortion bubble. Just like you. Only I'd guess my distorted reality is a lot more user friendly than yours.
