Limitations of Android OS:
Below limitations are based on comparing a single mobile from each OS. I posted only the drawback I frequently read about Android and my practical experience.

Little lag
Still an Android OS with quad-core processor has a little lag. I tried opening Temple Run game in iOS (iPhone), Windows 8 (Nokia Lumia 920) and Android OS (Samsung Galaxy Grand). Once I clicked the game icon Windows 8 and iOS responded immediately and showed 'Play' button, but I found there is a little lag in Android and it showed 'Play' button nearly after 30 seconds. In Windows 8 and iOS the game opened just like a 1 KB text file. This is unsolved problem in Android OS and many tech experts commented about this. This is the only reason iPhone tops every time.

Awkward design
Android mobile design is always awkward. When I have that above mentioned mobiles in my hand, Lumia 920 was eye-catchy. It looks very professional and impressed me a lot. We still love Android mobile only for its free apps.

If you use Wi-Fi connectivity for about a hour you can feel the heat in fuselage (back panel). I didn't notice this either Windows and iOS.

Most of the complaints were made for app crashes and lags. But Android is the only OS that provides you unlimited free apps. In Windows or iOS you need to buy each and every app.
