I'm using Android. I love the freedom of the OS and how custom you can make it. I've never had a pleasant experience with any Apple product. It feels like you have to go through loops and hoops just to do the same simple things.

Me personally I like apple better than android, although andriod has it's perks. It's just to the contrary of what people mostly say, I notice andriod phones break easily.. Software and hardware wise. I've dropped my iOS device in dish water on accident and it still worked and is still going on strong. Never really had a problem. And then with it being so open (andriod) you run into the risk of getting malware if you aren't careful (which does happen) I kinda find simplisty is bliss for me. But sometimes the UI for andriod looks a bit... Ugly..

Apple. I've only used an Apple phone so... yea. They have a really simple and clean interface, which what I like about them.

Although they lack in storage comparison to Android. I've never had a battery problem so I don't really care about that issue.

iOS devices

pro
> apps are approved by Apple, meaning there's much less risk involved when installing apps
> customer support

cons
> price tag
> limited 3rd party support

Android devices:

pro
> customize to your heart's content (if you're not happy with your android UI, you're doing something wrong)
> lower price tag in general

con
> fragmented OS. you might have to wait months to get a software update
> customer support pretty much non-existant. your only choice is pretty much relying on the android forums for troubleshooting

in the past, a larger screen was a deciding factor, but not anymore.

I love my moto X (second generation) you can customise it, not as much as the 1st gen moto x, but still... The phone just feels smooth and the hands free commands with google are pretty good. My only complain is that when out in the sunshine the screen can be a little hard to see at times, depending on how bright its outside and the camera is good but nothing amazing

I've used both Android and iPhone, my first Android phone was an original Motorola Droid. I switched to my first iPhone and really the only thing I like about it is how wide of a selection of apps and games there are on iTS compared to Android. I eventually switched back to Android for phones using a Galaxy S5 and don't see myself turning back.

I would like an iPhone 5c if I could get my hands on the extra money for one , but unfortunately I'm stuck on the S3 Mini which I must say is actually really nice considering how small it is. It has a lot more customization then the iPhone for sure, but I just have this attachment to the iPhone because I know it's more likely to give me less problems over time.

Android, but I don't go for the 3rd party OEM crap, if I go Android, it's on a Nexus device with a purer form of Android. Nexus devices are also far more developer friendly, and Google supplies factory images that I can use to flash my phone far in advance of OTA updates. I ran Lollipop far before it went out on OTA for my carrier, in fact, I flashed the dev preview of Lollipop well over a month before the factory image did. Battery problems disappeared, I might add.

Once MS revises their store policies though, I do plan to go to WP.

android, because I do not have a smartphone, but this 'tablet', https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNIYJYqRynE , which is awesome BTW, and the IOS store doesn´t allow any emulators. It also doesn´t have a certain awesome manga reader app I use a lot, and it doesn´t have torrent apps. As long as IOS devices can´t download apps like that and awesome emulators from the store like android devices can, there is no way I am buying an Apple device, thank you :-)

The thing would be pretty useless with IOS lol Accept for mobile games like GTA vice city and such offcourse, a lot of those support controllers, they´re awesome to play on the go like this :-) (the crappy touchscreen controls simply dissapear from the screen)

For anyone who lives in Australia you know how much more expensive everything is in comparison to places like the US - including phones! There's no way I'd fork out the money for an iPhone unless it was a hand-me-down from someone else or a super discounted price.

I currently have a Galaxy S4 and, regardless of dropping it on the first day I got it....and every other day, it's 100% perfect. I managed to get it at a discount price of around $400 AUD when it was originally upwards of $700ish. I also got a polka dot case that cost a few dollars which surprising is doing it's job really well.

I've had apple products, Windows phones and, of course, Androids. I prefer Androids, and this phone itself is the best I've ever had as well.
