The only thing that interests me there is the wireless charging.

And it's a fact it's easier to use an iPhone--I've used both.

More apps. Not better apps.

Easier to use

I completely disagree. I have one word for you: widget.

Better music apps

What's a music app? Oh, you mean iTunes?

Android is superior to iOS (see my upcoming debate)

The Galaxy S3 is my favourite (and the 4G model has the among the highest specs) but HTC do some damn sexy phones too...

There is no right answer. There are ways in which Android is better, and vice versa.

Useability:
Apple is arguabley easier to use for a complete novice, as it has a highly restricted set of controls. It does not hide anything you can do.

However, if your more of an advanced user, and want to do things like modify settings, controls, and the like, android is actually easier to use as the menu ability allows you to really get to the advanced stuff without having to hunt for it.

The back control is actually really nice, there is an equivalent for the iphone, but having a dedicated key, is actually one of the nicer things.

However, on android, Auto-correct sucks more than any other thing you can imagine. Writing "Im" autocorrects to "Important", rather than "I'm"

There are a lot of features in android that are really neat though, app management being a key one that I like, integrated downloads and the like simply blow ios away.

Speed:
iPhone is generally faster, although this is to do with the phone, rather than the operating system itself.

Oponeness:
This is not covered regularly, but android is vastly, vastly, vastly superior in terms of openess. It's a lot easier to move things around using USB, to expand memory using SD cards. You don't have to jump through hoops to move things about, or do your own thing. One of the key things for this, is that apps can actually do more because they are not limited by restrictions.

Screen size:
The larger screens of galaxy are really, really nice. Going back to the iPod from a galaxy seems teeny tiny. The screen size does help improve usability and experience.

Stability:
iOS is no more or less stable, I have had apps and the like crash more on ios than the equivalent versions on android, although it has gotten better on ios with later versions. The main difference is, that ios is a little better at dealing with it when it occurs; mainly in that it completely hides that there has been an issue, whereas android generally tells you that there has been a problem.

Multi-tasking:
This doesn't show up a lot, but can make a big difference on some apps. I play a couple of games that load up using the internet when they start. iOS automatically starts them, but when using ios multi-tasking, the app is restarted every time. Android genuinely keeps the app open, and while it takes a little more battery, it reduces that re-load time. I actually really like multi-tasking on android, but most of the time you may not notice the difference.

I love my galaxy note 2 because I can root it and overclock it, you can also load ROMs and kernels that use less system resources. I do not agree with you saying that Iphone is faster, as top-of-the-line android phones get higher benchmark scores, and perform better in general.

I would say that Android is better than iPhone. I'm specifically talking about Samsung Galaxy S III and iPhone 5. I have used and tried both of these two amazing phones, and I have to say that Samsung Galaxy S III is slightly better. Of course, this is just my opinion.

It's a phone. The only real difference that you will notice is the price tag.

The Nokia Lumia 920 is good. Windows Phone is better than both Android and iPhone, and costs less.

I highly recommend using Android , I am having Galaxy SIII and it has better battery life as compared to iPhone. It can be hook up to USB keyboards and mice. Best thing it has widgets the add on program that run on home screen. Very stylish and trendy look.
Mobile phones should have good UI and user experience. For more details visit us: http://www.chesstelecom.com...

The best thing that ever happened to me was when I literally, but accidentally baked my apple 3s in the oven. It was crashing all the time and the battery was going bad. Here is why Android wins hands down.

1. Don't have to use that absolutely horrid iTunes software on the computer.
2. Can buy a back up battery for less than $20.
3. Added 64 additional gigs of memory to my samsung GSII
4. I can talk to to Google's voice recognition and it knows what one is saying.
5. Android has allows competition as far as where you want to buy media from.
6. Don't need that stupid proprietary plug for apple.

Anyone who thinks apple is better, has simply just not done a good honest side by side user comparison.

Android is much better then the iphone. For one price it's gonna cost alot, even with a contract, to get a new iphone. Android has a variety of phones from many manufacturers to fit anyone's needs. As far as apps are concerned Apple may have android beat currently but it's because the iphones have been around a bit longer then android has but if you look at the statistics androids marketplace is growing at a much faster rate then apples app store. It's not going to be long till they overtake apple in that department. Google also designed the android OS to be open source which allows people to make their own version of the OS and modify it if they want but with Apple you can't do that at all, well you could try but you would probably brick the device. In turn I believe both phones are great but if i had to choose it would be android for googles stunning reputation and their constant need to evolve ahead of the technology world. In a few years google will be so far ahead of apple that the iphone will be retired and apple will stick to making laptops and other computers which is where they thrive.

I think that Android cannot be compared with Iphone as Iphone has its own special feature more than Android. Not only the feature, but also its outlook's design.

I just bought the iphone 6 today, and I have never been more impressed with a phone. It exceeded my expectations by a lot, and it is more of an improvement from the 5s, than the 5s was from the 4s.

Apple all the way!!

People only hate on Apple because they can't afford their products, so they go out of their way to justify their lackluster phone so they can sleep better at night... Just saying.
