iPhones were the first phones to really revolutionize how we use the smartphone. It had a huge screen, a built in iPod, and a really neat interface. Samsung blatantly copied Apple when they released tier samsung galaxy line and have been copying Apple patents ever since. Apple won in court to have Samsung pay them billions of dollars for copyright infringement. The iPhone was the true pioneer and still is in the smartphone industry. The trade screen size with acceptable battery life (unlike samsung), have a much more organized App Store, is much more user friendly, is much more stable as an operating system, and just all around cooler and easier to use.
Actually most of Apples ideas were copied off of by other companies http://www.mondaynote.com... like they say in the article apple doesn't actually invent anything, therefore they never revolutionized the tech industry today much more hurt it than helped it. Also androids such as samsungs have a ton more variety and has better hardware, also they are a lot cheaper. I guess its a OS preference, so it would be an opinion on if apple products are amazing.
There's no problem with using other people's ideas and putting your own spin on it. Samsung blatantly copied features of the iPhone according to a court order. The battle is still ongoing. Plus, when the first iphone came out in 2007 there wasn't any phone like it. The screen, music, apps, and other capabilities were the sole ideas of Steve Jobs.
Android phones have more variety but variety doesn't mean quality. Quality determines which phone is better. The higher quality android phones don't have a much variety and only very few, if any, have better hardware than the newest iPhone. The iPhone is the best-selling smartphone of all time and reviewers regularly complement the user interface, features, simplicity, and speed of the iPhone vs. it's competitors including samsung. iPhone is the highest quality smartphone on the market given these qualities and innovative history.
Steve Jobs is a scam, he sued what ever company he took the ideas off of, he sells crappy non customizable macs to people that think they are better because they are more expensive. Apple calls their love whipped customers stupid and cheats them out of their money because they are easy to take advantage of. They hurt other businesses, and make people go bankrupt apple should be sued by every single phone company in the world, id love to see apple go out of business.
Apple probably has better lawyers and siding when it comes to companies. Battery life, most android and samsung phones have better battery life than iphones, your battery dies on the bus you can pull a fully charged battery out of your pocket and boom you have 100% charge. Beautiful interface, that is a opinion (Technically this debate is opinion unless we are adding hardware facts) ease of use ( again can be classified as an opinion) sturdiness, if you dropped an I phone 1 foot it would break.
A samsung galaxy can have a ton more space, it has a bigger screen more apps than apple ( its probably has a more optimized interface for app developers) The hardware in samsungs phones are better, you can even see this in some apps that are cross developed such as flappy bird, the android version had more pixels and shading than the one for apple, until they optimized the game to run better on the iphones hardware, because there would be some fps lag if they didnt.
