Android Fragmentation

It has recently been reported that Lenovo will be switching from their custom UI to stock Android for their smartphones. This gets to the root of the issue of why I prefer iOS over Android: fragmentation. Apple controls the whole experience so you get a synergy between the hardware and software. Save for the Google phones you have a different company making the hardware and software across the Android environment. Apple may have fewer phone options though that control leads to better phone and software integration. If I were to be interested in switching to an Android phone I would focus solely on the stock Android models(which is a reason I believe Lenovo made the switch too).
