Not when u get used to it. Though yes, IPhone is a lot simpler to start
Report as
yes, but android has more freedom of the type of apps such as cmd and linux command apps.

iPhone is simpler because it is a more restrictive UI.

yes, true

Android for sure. Android is faster, can process more data, better camera I personally think, and u can refund purchased apps. That's just a few. iPhone is a lot slower and less effective. Look up some pros and cons on the Internet. I'd say android though

Apple created the touch screen and have more expirence on it, also ios is a lot faster than android. When you get a iPhone go to safari and look in the reading symbol it says iPhone user guide ( it's a tour ) AppleCare can make your iPhone faster :) Get a iPhone, it's better

You can make call in both. While iPhone lets you do much more. + it's more advance. Android is much lagged. And iPhone is much better to Handle or understand.

It's funny because my S4 has higher RAM, faster processor and a more streamlined OS... usually indicators that it will lag less (keep in mind there are hundreds of different phones using Android, vs. only a few using iOS.) The Apple UI is only simpler because it is a more restricted UI.

iPhone because androids can get viruses on it and mess up your entire phone and iPhones can not get them

Uhh, yes they can. People can create viruses for the iOS just like they can for the Android OS.

Android, but it depends on the phone itself.

Several Android phones (Galaxy S4, HTC One, etc.) have better processors and specs overall than the iPhone 5.

You can expand the memory with an SD card. On iPhones you have to pay an extra $100 for internal memory increases (an SD card is just $20.)

They have comparable app markets. You won't be missing anything either way (but Android's is bigger.)

Android is more customizable.

You don't require iTunes and Apple to manage your files, music and videos, or to recover your phone.

For me the biggest thing was that iPhones are ridiculously expensive and constrained. An iPhone 5 is $399 for the 64GB, or I could get my S4 for $149, also 64GB internal memory, but I can expand the memory with an SD card. Removable battery that I can replace when it wears out, larger screen, twice the RAM, higher pixel density and higher resolution. So basically, I can put more on the phone, it operates faster, and looks better on an S4 than on an iPhone 5.

Welcome. There are literally hundreds of phones that use Android, so you're going to have to compare the phones directly. A Kyocera Hydro isn't going to stack up well against an iPhone 5, but a Samsung Galaxy S4 or an HTC One will beat the 5 hands down.

Yeah, the phone I have now is a Samsung...and I favor them just a little.
But, I've never had a smartphone so I haven't a clue, really.
Thanks again. :)

I have android and I think the market where u get your apps and more random things are set up better than the IPhone but it depends on the person because my cousin loves her IPhone! I think the android is a lot faster but more complicated and has more things... but if u want simple go for IPhone... Also the IPhone does have a few problems.

Android: Cheaper phones, cheaper apps (way more free apps), more customization. The only reason I can think of that iPhone may be better is if you were raised on a Mac and are willing to pay more for the brand name.

If u are focusing on the quality go with apple.
if u r focusing on the features go with android.
iPhone has cool design, better camera and best security. To me that's the most important thing with a phone, no need to run antivirus or worry about what you are installing on it. The design is also better, far thinner and lighter, and isn't like a plate in your pocket. I had a good time with my iPhone. And I usually take some iPhone tips from iFunia iPhone Column.
Android is very nice too. I don't know much about it.

Depends on what are your uses.
Android is way more open and fun to use.
Most people want to hear Apple are better because they give you a luxurious feeling.
Android is an open-source operating system. You can do anything! Plus the connection to google is very comfortable in every way.
I'd say Android is better than IOS.
BUT if you only want crap like instagram and vine, it really doesn't matter which one.

Really, it depends on you.

I would just say Samsung/Android because if you lose your phone or damage it, you can get another one of cost. It's a little heavier, but it's more efficient.

Apple is alright, it's more brighter in a sense, but I don't really like how you need to enter your password all the time. (Yet it's a bit more secure, you can say.) It's more simple too. Yet the downside, is always the price. You can't really get a replacement if it breaks and such. (No WiFi for the phones.)

I don't really prefer any of the which, though.

Obviously android. Android phones are cheap, have up to triple the performance (benchmarked) of the iPhone 5's A5 chip, has actual customization, and don't rip you off. Some people say Apple's design is better? Look at the HTC One, Sony Xperia Z.
Some people say the camera on the iPhone is better? Galaxy S4's camera is better than most real cameras. Some people say iOS is easier to use? Android comes with an "easy mode" for those not used to smartphones. You can also root the phone and make the OS whatever you want it to be.

Android offers much more customization but is pretty complex as well and is cheap, the apps are mostly free and ad supported but is vulnerable to virusesand more spam softwares...
iOS is virus free fast simple and basic customization (iOS 7(upcoming) is promising) costly and less free aps but no spam and iOS is much more reliabl

That depends on you. iOS has much better simplicity, often being described as the "old people phone" but it really is for users. If your a user and not a modder/hacker/get-the-absolute-most-out-of-everything person then the iPhone would be great! However, Android is a lot more open source in the sense that you can change a lot more things if you really just want exploit every possible use of the device. It solely depends on you!
