The open-source operating system Android is superior to Apple's iOS. This is because Android offers a significantly larger amount of customization, has fewer restrictions on what it can do (such as mass storage and complete file access), has unique features such as Internet downloads and custom launchers, is available for more devices, has more free software on Google Play than the App Store, all with the security that Linux-based systems have to offer.

Bring it on :)

Apple is better because it has more storage, and only some apps are allowed for Android, especially the free ones, and Apple is one of the top brands inthe nation, with it having iPods, iPads, iPhones, and Macbooks.

The amount of built-in storage to Android devices is irrelevant, because many phones running android have expandable stroage, meaning that you can purchase an SD card and determine how much storage you want. This also allows you transfer data between two android devices simply by moving the SD card.

Although some apps are exclusive to iOS devices, there are also apps which are exclusive to Android devices. In terms of quantity, Google Play has already surpassed the App Store in number of apps available. (1)

Also, even though Apple is a successful company, Android-using companies are more successful than Apple. About 80% of the world's smartphones run Android. Not to mention, Apple has very expensive costs for their products when compared to the typical Android phone. (2)

Either way, I'd like to re-clarify the topic of this debate. We are discussing which OPERATING SYSTEM is better, not which company is better. Neither iOS or Android are companies. I ask my opponent to kindly explain why iOS is better than Android, regardless of which company develops it.
