iPhone for the simple truth and fact that they don't slow down unlike Androids which slow down after a while, even the most highest end. And iPhone does everything I need it to and it's a lot simpler to do things I need to on iPhones. Android is just a mess to me.

If you want to get to the point where you could actually answer one half of the questions people ask here, you would probably need at least 6 months solid experience in either Android or Apple. So there is no clear answer.

It's personal preference. It's easier to migrate from the Apple ecosystem (mac, ipd, etc.) to the iPhone. But some bad experiences with iPod file structure and lack of transparency drove me to Android since being a fan of Apple since 1983 with the Lisa.

I can't say that Android is any more transparent, and some of it is Windows-style kludgy, but now I have at least seen both views.

Every OS is good for certain things, but Android is the most versatile, which is what I need.

iPhone.
Reasons:

  • Build Quality

  • Customer Service

  • Jailbreak experience is a lot better than rooting

  • No Google

  • Software Updates

  • User Interface


I used to call iPhone users sheep. So there's that.

I prefer android because of file access and system variety
