Actually, my phone has a quad core proc clocked at 2,36ghz and a 5,2" IPS screen and it has been the most optimized phone I've had in terms of both performance and battery life.

Now Android users have no right to say "iOS copied Android". They both steal equally as much.
If you're implying Google is copying Apple with this new android version I'm afraid you'd be mistaken. Google has been moving towards flatter designs for years before Apple even revealed iOS 7. Not to mention: Microsoft also ventured into the flat aesthetic with both Windows Phone and Windows 8 before iOS 7.

Have had nothing but problems with my Google Nexus 5. The WiFi range sucks, it can't connect with the settings common in many routers that all the iPhone users have 0 issues with, it can't make phone calls through WiFi anymore (Google killed that for everyone a month ago - way to go Google) , and Google support has been terrible. Just check the forums if you don't believe me. I now fully understand why iPhone users are so happy. Because they "just work" and Google's "just don't". :(

Interesting, I've had a Nexus 5 for 3 months now and have not had any issues what so ever. Best and fastest phone I've ever used.
And with android 5/L it can only get better

No problems what so ever with my Nexus 5. Great speeds over 5Ghz wifi.
If I need more wifi range I switch to 2.4Ghz which has a better range.

I don't like the navbar design. Other features seem fine, music and gallery look good although they are showing mostly social network features which I don't really care about. I wonder if there are any changes to launcher or settings.

How much is Apple paying nowadays for posts?

Most iPhone users are blissfully ignorant and shouldn't even own a "smartphone". But then, you just proved that point.
