Not only are they behind in that regards but user customization is terrible, it's spell check and autocomplete doesn't even work right. There is no swipe keyboard. The only good thing about iPhone is its camera, half the iPhone apps are way out of date to their android counter parts and security updates are slow and come rarely when there are so many well known malware and security app permission exploits and ad issues,
Android allows total user control and iPhone is heavily restricted to a point of almost unusablity. iPhones speak recognition is a mess and its search results is much worse than Bing day1. Forget using seri its hella bad, only good for a laugh.
I typed this on a iphone, it took about a hour because it sucks at type speed and can't keep up.
Save your money and buy any android phone over a iPhone as iPhone is dumbphone
