I have used devices running the Android operating system for many years. I enjoy the flexibility it provides and there is a large community of Android enthusiasts that can provide various tools and / or tutorials on how to do different things with your devices. Today I do not tend to "hack" my devices to install custom kernels or obtain root mode, but it is nice to know that if I ever do want to tinker with my devices I can probably find something on the Internet to help me do that.
I recently bought a car with Android Auto. While the car's native infotainment system was pretty good and integrated so you could do things like change audio settings and channels with voice commands, it was restrictive in what you could say to it and you could not send text messages via voice. One thing that I wanted to be able to do is not only hear the messages read back to me, (which it did fine), but also reply or generate a new text message, (which it did not do). So I enabled Android Auto and thought things would be good. However, as soon as I asked Google to text someone, it responded that I needed to enable more access.
