In this debate, I will be arguing that the Google Android OS (Version 5.0.2 Lollipop) is better than Apple's iOS (Version 8.1.3). Any opponent is allowed to enter.

Definitions:

Android: The Android phone I am arguing for is the HTC One M8.
better than: More useful as a daily driver.
iOS: The iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, according to Con.

First round is acceptance only. Second, third and fourth rounds follow conventional debate rules (argument, argument+rebuttal, argument+rebuttal).

Really? THE ANDROID IS COPIED OF THE APPLE IOS! Really you can't beat the original!

My first point is that Android has significantly more options for things than iOS can offer. Not only can you change basic details like the wallpaper, you can also change the icon pack, the application market, the lock screen and even the entire launcher. This offers a user more freedom to express themselves. If you really like darker, more grimmer themes, then Dainty and Crumbled will be your type. If you are more of the vibrant type, then Nova Launcher and Moonshine will suit you.

In your first post, you mentioned that Android is a rip-off of iOS. It is slighlty true, however, the iPhone was not the first phone to be released nor was it the first smartphone to be released. In fact, the first smartphone was released by IBM.

This is a pointless debate as my opponent has forfeited both rounds and has not rebutted my argument nor made their own argument. Vote Pro, vote the green robot.

I shall be starting this debate again but this time only available to more willing debaters.
