tokyobags Its an iphone for me.

I like that fact that it doesnt requires me to meddle much into the phone settings and details to get it working well and fine.

Some of the other phones before the iphones just has too many little bugs here and there, that sometimes just makes even sending a text message buggy.

odizzido Android is not secure largely because security updates either arrive very late or never. Drivers are not supplied by manufacturers so you cannot update/reinstall your OS yourself properly either. If PC users had to wait for dell or toshiba to provide updates like android users have to wait on their manufacturers/carriers it would be a pretty huge problem. Assuming they even bothered to push out updates for your device which chances are they wouldn't.

The iphone on the other hand actually gets patched. This is great, but I find the lack of an SD slot and how they wall you off from everything on your phone to be extremely irritating whenever I am helping someone with anything more difficult than checking email. This is a theme for apple devices too. I remember recovering music off of an ipod once. Not only do they not bother to offer basic protocols to access your information requiring you do use third party software but they also rename all of your files. For example if you put an mp3 file like PathOfExileTown1.mp3 on an ipod it will rename it to jkhaslfkjhgljkhf.mp3. So frustrating. What's extra annoying is they don't have to do that, they choose to annoy you and make things difficult.

When I got a smart phone I had to choose between getting updates properly and having an SD slot pretty much.

Lil' Tofu I always had Androids, but I decided to switch to an iPhone since they're simpler and I don't care much for all the customization. I like it a lot so far.

I do have both, but even if I don't agree with the walled garden that Apple has become, I wouldn't say locked down unusable turd.It worked quite nicely, and I know for a fact that they have just the right devices for non-techies.

Now, I'd call them the dark side for a reason that is even more important than you own freedom : I am not quite positive about the situation right now in Foxconn, and even if I'm considering getting a new device, the simple fact that such devices have been assembled by enslaved chinese workers is enough to make me at least think twice.

Android is not insecure by default. What turns Android into an insecure device are the rogue apps. Also Privacy remains the same concern as with Apple devices. Ever heard of Ad Mob?

Apple or Android...?

Hmmm, give me something made under the same conditions as a Fairphone, that works as smoothly as any IOS device (also looks as good as IOS does, with all those lovely little quirks), and gives me the freedom of REPLICANT (free android, google it)...

Shandong Android, more freedom for the user!

ElaineV Not sure if this has been mentioned yet or not but iPhone's text messaging between iPhones through is encrypted. And Apple has stood up to the FBI to protect iPhone owners' privacy.

I use to work for a phone comapny too, and whenever i compared the specs between sony and apple, sony was always higher and better on everything and was also much cheaper.

MrVegi I use Android, I like that I can customize it in a way I want.
02-15-2015 05:07 PM
rasitha.wijesekera iPhone , it's really easy to do what you want from a phone but forget about any customizations or niche features.

VeggieTalk I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 now and the battery is terrible compared to my very old, but well loved Blackberry (I miss you!). That things battery life was insane! Three to five days without recharge!

varun Androids simply do more practical things quicker and more easily than iPhones. For eg., transfer of music/videos via USB/Bluetooth can be done without use of any specific software whereas iTunes is needed in Apple & even then people face difficulty with transfer.

Also its easy to completely customise the look & feel of Android i.e icons, wallpaper, ringtone etc whereas that nearly impossible in Apple. The only thing going for Apple is its security as its nearly hack/tamper proof, but that's because its obstructive in most ways.

Naturebound Just upgraded from a flip phone to an android two weeks ago. I have the Samsung Galaxy S5. It took me an hour just to figure out how to answer the thing lol. I am getting more used to it now and appreciate all the amazing features. I had thought about the i phone at first but was told from a number of sources that the Samsung s5 has much better camera capabilities. Plus every store I went to was out of stock with the i phones but had plenty of Samsungs lol.

Bruce V My wife has an iphone and she is not at all tech savy, so I have to help her with it and so I have some experience with it. I much prefer my Android

yellowduckie21 I just switched from Blackberry to Android, and I couldn't be happier. I didn't want to go with an iPhone simply because the specifications on Android phones are far superior to what iPhone has. I am not bashing apple by any means, but I personally feel like they are the smartphone for people who want technology from 3 years ago; Apple has not done anything significant in innovating and creating a more superior product.

kyr656 I have had both, Apple all the way. I had countless issues with Android- and I love the system I now have going with my other devices.

They generally have proprietary OSes.

For a while now I've wanted to take apart a Motorola Razr and turn it into a flip smartphone with the same keypad. I still think the old Razr design is one of the most beautiful and elegant.

Unfortunately I lost my old razr years ago and will probably go through a few of them before not outright destroying one. And it probably would just look weird. Razrs were pretty small by today's phone standards, some of which look like slightly smaller tablets.
