Android phones are so much freer (if that makes sense) and have so much more access. Apple seems so much more constricted and not able to do a whole lot unless jailbroken. I have apple and like it I just wish it had the jailbroken features without having to jailbreak
honestly it depends on if you get the most updated versions. If you get the five then it's better than any other phone out there and even the new fours because they now all have 4G and let me tell you it's fast and you can get service basically anywhere.
