I've currently only ever used Android systems for tablets and phones. My only real issue with it is bloatware from the vendor and random .txt files appearing in my documents folder. What are they for? Why do they appear in the hundreds? I don't know.

I have an upgrade coming up or already here. So I was planning on getting an iphone and see how that works. Hopefully it's easier than going from Windows to MacOS.

Beware of iTunes. That's all I have to say about iOS devices. I LOVE my iPhone, but absolutely hate iTunes. Don't even try WiFi syncing with iTunes, and save yourself the headaches.

I have both, and each have their own perks.

The things I like about iOS are iMessage, the app ecosystem and availabilities (iOS is 95% the first OS to get the app). Also, the fact that I don't have to constantly clear the cache in order for it to function normally is nice. Camera is nice, I just hate the camera roll, iPhotos and iTunes and the syncing. Deleting media files via iPhotos or iTunes is a giant pain in the rectal cavity.

Some Android OS versions differ from one another. The functionality is good, when it comes to having to cut/paste/copy/import/export/etc. I also like the fact that there are more device choices, since I prefer purchasing unlocked. One of my Android phones have pretty good battery life. By good battery life, I mean 2.5 days or even 3 days later after a charge, I still have 18% left, and that's still good for streaming music or videos for about 5-6 hours.

Hmm,

I have had both. Every android I have starts slowing down after a while and I have yet to run into this problem with my IPhone 5. That being said not being able to use an SD card is a pain in my butt since I keep running out of memory for photos which can get quite annoying.

Overall I still prefer my IPhone, its the only Apple product I think is actually worth it (if you get it on sale like I did).

Android, because I don't like being coddled like a child.

Basic advantages:

Wide selection of devices
Side loading
Highly customizable
Low App policing - apps that are deemed "offensive" - like Civil War games that show the confederate flag (shocking I know) - are allowed.
Not forced into using iTunes

This doesn't seem like a lot at first, but some specific things:

Some devices have extra usability, the Turbo 2 uses smart display, gestures, and Google Now.
I can pick a device with better battery life, performance, durability, etc.
If I decide I don't like the next phone series from a given manufacturer I can change manufacturer without losing my apps.
If I don't like the default layout I can change launchers till it operates how I want it to. Currently using smart launcher which is rock solid.
Competition is higher which typically results in lower prices in general.
Side loading means if an app gets rejected from the play store it can still be sold or distributed outside of it.
The odds of an app even getting rejected are low which means you have a diverse app demographic.
You can sync with a variety of programs - use what you're most comfortable with (besides, iTunes runs like ass on Windows)


The "it just works" mantra means that no matter what you must use a highly controlled ecosystem for it to work that way. When you get into that level of control you have no say. If you walk, you lose your apps which if you've invested any significant sum in will be painful. Don't like the 3.5mm jack being removed? Screw you, take it or leave your apps and hope we don't give you a second dosage of courage!

Androids because I hate the IOS and UI of Iphones. Also I hate how it doesn't play nice with anything that isn't an apple product.
