To this day, I still don't understand why anyone would choose an Android over an iPhone. Not hating, I just don't get it.

I thought the same thing until I got my Samsung Galaxy II. My friends with iPhones even admit it's just as good if not better. Plus the screen is so much bigger.

For real? I've never used that phone so I can't comment on it, but no Android I've ever used has even come close to an iPhone for me. I'll have to give it a test drive.

Because android is a far far superior operating system?

How exactly?

I'm not sure which model is, but a friend of mine has a Samsung Android (just got it earlier this year), and it's incredibly slow and clunky feeling. Apps are always crashing, the operating system seems slow and laggy, the camera takes forever to take a photo, among other things.

The iPhone 4S is hands down the best phone I've ever used, in my opinion. Again, not hating.

For me, Android vs Apple is a no brainer, Android has been far superior for a while now, the sales figures dont lie.

Im a big fan of HTC, ive had 5 in a row now, just recently upgraded last month to the HTC One m8, and its frikkin awesome.
The sales figures of multiple phones a year versus one or two? Makes sense.

Yes, but comparing strictly software, 84.7% users of smartphones prefer Android compared to the 11.7% smartphone users who like iOS. (http://www.techtimes.com/articles/13...hone-sales.htm)

Windows may be across multiple hardware devices, but that doesn't mean that Windows doesn't do better than OS X.
Due to the incredible number of devices running Android. It would be a fair comparison if iOS were available from dozens of manufacturers.

And yet people compare Windows to OSX all the time?

Obviously I'm aware of this, that's why I said strictly from a software point of view.

I'm just saying, the comparison is horribly flawed and entirely meaningless.

I dunno, iPhones are pretty similarly priced to most android phones, so why not? The customer has the choice which OS they prefer, it's not like they HAVE to buy android just because there are so many.

Almost everyone I know well who uses an Android phone does so because they got it free on contract, many of them parents and folks who can't be bothered to spend the money on an iPhone.

Uuuuh iPhone is free on contract too.

2 year old devices can be. Last year's model is still $149 on contract here, whereas a multitude of Android phones are free or half that price. What don't you understand?

Rude much? Quit the aggressive tone eh pal?

In THIS country, the last model (not the iPhone 6) is available on contract on pretty much any network for bugger all. As are a lot of android devices.

My post clearly stated I was referring to people I know, who obviously live in this country, where year old iPhones are not free on contract. Starting your response with "uuuhhh" indicates you thought I misspoke, and I did not. That's all.
