Phones and tablets (especially cheaper ones) generally don't have much storage space, and their other components are not that powerful (low memory, slow processor, etc. The Operating System that runs on them must therefore be kept to its absolute minimal size, and be heavily optimized to the very specific hardware inside.

It's because Apple has to look only over its iPhone models, which are less in number. Also iOS is more efficient (runs well on old hardware). And Google also had claimed that KitKat will support low-on hardware devices well, and it does. But the problem with Galaxy Nexus is that Texas Instruments, its SoC manufacturer has discontinued SoCs and probably ...
