OS comparison is really more of a comparison of active phones. Since the manufacturers have been terrible in providing OS updates, most of us are stuck with whatever Android version the phone shipped with. - terribly disappointed.
I'm on android 4.2.2, but that's because I have the nexus 4. My wife has the galaxy S2 running 4.0.4. I know its a aging device, but it's still being sold by Boost were I bought it so I still feel it's kind of a shaft to not upgrade it. I might install cyanogenmod on it or something.
That's the beauty of Android, so many ROMs to choose from. :)
Yeah, that's what I love about it. I've tried a few roms. I could even try out the Ubuntu OS on this Nexus. It's not even close to be ready for daily use though.
Can't help wondering if this is the result of Google starting to exert some subtle (?) pressure on manufacturers regarding updates ; after all, one of the most common complaints about Android phones is just how difficult it is to get updates. Improving this situation would go a long way towards increasing customer satisfaction....
