Re: Sadly it doesn't run iOS.
Well, iOS would be even worse for doing things the way you want rather than the way the manufacturer wants.
But Android 4.4 is plenty bad enough.
The author conveniently forgets to mention that in Android 4.4 you can't write anything to the SD card, making things terribly cumbersome in daily use if you're doing anything more than making phone calls and fumbling around on Facecrook.
Stability or not, at least Android 5 fixes that major issue.
