Posted 24 days ago
Post your thoughts down below and why :D

I prefer iPhones because they're a whole lot less complicated than Android phones. It just.... works. :D

I've had an iPhone 6 for almost 2 years now and I'm still happy with it.

I've never had an Android phone though, so idk how they compare.

I've had so many problems with android... especially because most of them are still made of plastic which makes them overheat so much.

i prefer iPhones, they're pretty and simple. That's enough for me

Android

my first phone was an android

Nexus 6(new) for $200

no complaint

it was stock android so no need to worry about bloatwares

not a fan of iphones-- too many restrictions and pricey for me-- i'll also avoid Samsung phone for the same reasons


as for the Galaxy Note 7

...I wouldn't know as I don't own a phone at all.

I'll just say from what I've seen Android is more complicated but is a lot more durable and iphones are easy to use but can easily break. (Android phones can break easily depending on the type so it would seem)

Bruh, android phones have such crappy battery life. My S4 legit last an hour and a half when watching youtube videos. It goes from 100% to just about zero by watching videos.

Oh man, that's rough. My phone has pretty decent battery life, I can usually get it to last through the day. I also bought one of those charging cases, makes life so much easier haha

you should check out various mobile sites

places where people are testing both android phones and iphones

they can provide you with an objective opinion

my nexus 6 has a quad hd (1440p) 5.9in screen . watching movie on it will last around 5-6 hours

i'm using wifi and data a the same time to watch 1080p movies..

the time will vary depending on the contrast you set it at

if you have android phones with 1080p screen it will last a lot longer


when someone told you they have a phone that will only last 1-2 hours when watching movie.. it's either an old/used phone

batteries have life cycle..

you can not expect a battery to last 2-3+ years at 100% capacity if you keep charge it 2-3 times a day due to excessive use

my nexus 6 can last 4-5 days on stand by (doze- android 6.0 os) with minimum usage

but when i'm watching movies continuously for hours i'll need to charge it every day

but from 100% to 0%.. when watching movie will take 5-6 hours for my nexus 6

it's another scheme these phone companies are doing.. making the battery none removable on their latest phones so when the battery can't hold charge anymore people will upgrade.. so some it that time might be 1-4+ year. depending on usage

as for battery.. if removable.. be careful not buying cheap chinese fakes or used batteries

which will not hold charges for more than 1-2 hours even when you barely use the device

I would have to say iphone when I owned a iphone 4 it was the best thing ever in all honesty and was able to play all the 3d games they had flawlessly but did something a bit blah and traded it for a android and got stuck with android 2.3 and regret it lol.

They both have their pluses and minuses. Easy two are apps.

Unless you have a developer setup on an iphone or it's jailbroken, only apps from appstore can be installed. This makes the likelyhood of malware or such getting in much smaller.

Android doesn't restrict as much so it's easier to get an app on (including something a friend wrote up) and even install pretty much manually. But this also leaves it more open to malware and infected apps and the like. So you need to be a bit more careful of what you install and the like.


In essence, ios has better security but more restictions, while android has less restrictions but not as good security.
A lot pretty much comes down to what people plan to install on it and the availability of those apps.

So I prefer my iPhone simply because it's easy enough to set up a developer liscense and install unofficial apps.

I've had both iphone and android, and have to say, iphone is definitely my favorite. Had the galaxy 3 and the thing was always overheating. Plus, it was so complicated to find nice cases, which I have an obsession with. I've had my iphone 5s since my last upgrade three years ago, and has never given me a single problem. No overheating, it's simpler to use, and overall, just more aesthetically pleasing for me. If I have to say one thing I miss about my android is that I miss the decent camera. Although I'll be upgrading to 6s with 32gb by next year, and heard the camera is better on that one.

iphone downsides:

#1 itunes
#2 not being able to delete photos transferred from pc without connecting to pc
#3 itunes
#4 no expandable storage
#5 itunes
#6 need to remain at previous OS if you want to jb

but it's still a solid phone, especially the later models (6s / 7)

android...there are too many android flavors, but if you're not using nexus, you might have to wait a long while to get updates..if you get an update at all. carriers also love to put bloatware / spyware on android phones (though that's more of a carrier fault)

NO need for expandable storage considering no Android phones have the same internal storage size of 256gb like the iPhone.

-iTunes sucks. I love my iPhones, but the one thing I absolutely hate is iTunes. It's complete garbage, and has pissed off me soooooooo many freaking times.
