But we cannot deny that iphone ios6 run smoother and faster than Android,
Android sometimes responds slow, even after I clear memory.

I can not comment on ios as i've never owned an iphone, but i will admit that on my android phone i've experienced some slowness, but in saying that, Androind is not the native operating system on my phone, and i believe icecream sandwich was denied to more powerful phones than mine, so that may have something to do with that.

Yes, your experience is true, many of my friends also complained the same thing, from gingerbread until ICS,
though it is dual or quad core CPU, the Android system sometimes can be slow or even hanged and force you to Reset or plug out your battery.

IOS, is faster, I do not own iphone, but I borrow people's phone and use it 1 day, very different experience.

Even if IOS is faster and more smoother in operation as you said, Apple is not linux friendly and they won't make syncing iphones and linux desktops easy.

At least that can be done with all Android phones. How many iphones can do that? lol

The thing is, Ios and Iphones are no different to Apple computers and Osx. Osx is made with specific hardware in mind. This creates a unique computer because everything (should) syncs together in perfect harmony. I own a mac, i purchased it as my first computer a year and a half ago, before learning about Gnu/Linux. I run Gnu/Linux on my Macbook pro, and i can definitely say that Gnu/Linux is no where near as smooth as Osx on that computer; why? Because Gnu/Linux support thousands of different pieces of computer hardware, but osx is optimized for only a few including my Macbook pro.
Ios is no different, it's optimized for the hardware it's run on, (iphones). Android on the other hand supports heaps of different phones.
The comparison between the two in the sense from where you're coming from is unfair, is my point. It's like saying, Android is better because it runs on lots of different phones and Ios doesn't.

I also prefer Android than WP7/8 or ios6,
but on desktop, intel PC, linux is running faster than Windows, I think so.
Probably android is not 100% linux compliant?
