Android doesn't have bezel gestures, but they're moving away from physical buttons in favor of onscreen buttons. Also, several apps have moved to multi-pane views. For example, with the youtube app you have the main pane, then you swipe from the side to get a scrollable pane that shows your account, suggestions, uploads, etc.

Well I would base my opinion of Android off the version I have running on my TouchPad. The problem some of you don't seem to understand is that Android runs on lots of different hardware so people's opinions will be different based upon the hardware it was used on. If some other phones have more features then the stock Android then fine but don't act like it's universal for every variant of hardware or that everyone has the same experiences as most people don't have the time to know about every possible device out there.
Comparing Android on my TouchPad to BB10 is a no contest in favor of BB10. Some people like myself just don't like the UI of Android. It's very clunky to me and even forgetting about the UI I also happen to prefer a real-time microkernel OS but I guess that makes me technologically illiterate.

BB10 - just a heavilly skinned version of Android?
we can agree to disagree but in terms of real use, there is only a slight difference between the two, that being android only works for new messages and bb10 can work for old ones.
if you want to point out differences, i mentioned in another thread that the hub is better to use then peek and flow.
the way it integrates with the calendar and contacts all in one place is something i havent seen the like off yet on android. dunno about ios cos i dont have access to those devices

The simple fact is that all modern smartphones are much more than the visual appearance of the UI, and the look of the UI does not the capability of the phone. Leaving aside legal contraints a competent programmer can make any phone's UI resemble a competitor's product although the phone's capability, technical design, and software are completely different. Apple -v- Samsung proved that perfectly in front of Judge Koh.
