Hi guys what do you think, which one is better and why ???
I think that iPhone is just an device good for showing off. Android has to offer so much more. I would like to hear your opinion ??

Android, for the fact that it's open source.

I would never have anything but an iPhone again (as long as I'm in an area with coverage).

Had an Android a few years ago in an area that didn't support iPhone.

IPhone is just better then any other phone I've had.

I personally prefer Android phones because the cables are mostly universal. I can use my Samsung charger with my htc phone. Also I just checked and I can use my PS4 charging cable with it as well. Although, I hear that Iphones are more "user friendly".

Android, started with an Iphone first (3g) but with each successive update in the OS it gets more and more resource heavy (because they just pushed OS updates meant to work with dual-core 1000mhz processors onto my single core 300mhz phone) until basically the 3g was barely functional. It would take over a minute for the the screen to unlock, there was a perceptible lag between typing letters and them showing up on the phone... I just came to the conclusion that they were trying to make my phone unusable so i'd pony up the money for their latest greatest model.

If good gps/maps are needed, or service in rural areas, IPhone.

I've had both. Currently have s6 edge. Wife has iphone 6s.

If you want your phone, apps, etc to just work and really don't care about customization then I'd say iPhone without question. Things seem to work more seamlessly.

However, if you like fiddling around with the phone settings, apps, programs, etc and don't mind a few bugs, then Android.

My biggest beef with both phones though is that I am sick of the carriers loading up these phones with useless apps that you can't delete. I'd pay a little extra to just get a phone with nothing installed on it so I can do my own thing.

I'd say it's personal preference depending on what you use your phone for and the other devices you might want your phone to interact with.
I've been a die hard Android guy since the HTC Evo.
Also, do you want removable storage like a microSD card? Only Android.

Currently I own a Motorola Moto X Pure and couldn't be happier. Only $400 out of pocket, can use it on virtually any carrier, microSD storage, quick charge.

My gf has been an Apple die hard and just upgraded to the 6s. She owns a Mac and iPad as well so all of her devices talk to one another without a hitch.

Go to a store and play around with several phones, see what you like and what fits your lifestyle. Good Luck!

NOTE: As above, Android devices use a micro USB cable, virtually any one will do. Apple's cables are proprietary and VERY PRONE TO BREAKING. And the person above is right about the apple OS making a seemingly new device much slower.

but....

You can remove whatever you want on either, provided it's been jailbroken/rooted. Or just buy a Nexus....

Absolutely, under no uncertain terms....BlackBerry. Lol.

I suppose you can make a case that ALL phones are more "locked up" than an average PC. It's not like you an control them, but the fact is if you have an iPhone you are beholden to one company that keeps a very tight grip on the whole thing. With Android, you have choices. Several different companies make them. Their OS is transparent (for those who understand it), and a decision by one company does not lock you into "their way or the highway."

Therefore, Android.

Yep, that's me. And my kid works in Hollywood production which is almost entirely Mac/Apple.

I want seamless. No interest in fiddling.

To some degree it depends on what you will be using it for. Ios based mobile devices are useless to me because they don't offer OTG capability like Android does. This means that with an ios you can't use the usb port for any external devices like jump drives, software defined radios, printers, wireless devices, webcams, network adapters, etc. At least with Android, if the OS supports a driver then any usb device can be used.
