    Apple vs android.

    Man I've been an avid apple guy for the past 5 phones and I was a huge fan. I bought a iPad and everything. They're really user friendly that my in-laws, grandma, and my dad could even use it. So, with that being said I've had a lot of friends switch to the samsung so figured I'd give it a shot. I got a new s6 edge plus yesterday and I'm blown away. All the different apps and gadgets are insane. I love it and I'm glad I switched. What a re your guys opinions.

    I've had iPhones since early 2009 and have been thinking of switching in January for the Samsung as well. Apple just isn't keeping up any longer. I bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab for $149 last month just to get some cool apps that all my Apple devices can't do. It is amazing. I can cast a movie to my TV and watch another on the tablet at the same time with the quad-core processor and free movie apps only for Android.

    I made the switch from the droid to the iPhone. I only made the switch because I was using an iPod at the gym and my daughter finally got to an age where I could leave her at home while I worked out. I need to carry a phone just incase she needed to call me while I was at the gym. I would much rather have my droid back. I am too illiterate to figure how to get my music from iTunes onto whatever the droid uses to play music. Also I hate iTunes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IPhone sucks. They lock you into using it THEIR way. Android can be more complex but once you get used to it it's clear it's superior. Just the fact that apple doesn't let you easily replace your battery on your own is enough evidence for me to say they suck

    The one thing I liked best about iPhone is the music app it had, and iTunes. Music could be bought and played seamlessly The rest goes to my HTC M9. What does piss me off about my M9 is that the music app I have is shit and cuts out at times. One time it called 911 while I was working out.
    Also, Android's app store is all open market. To get an app on Apple app store it has to go through an extensive review process which sucks ass.

    I agree 100%. I had an Iphone for years and switched to Android a few months ago. I feel like I was using a kid's product and just got the adult version (like pretty much all Apple products anyway). No way I'll get back to this Iphone crap.

    I've used both and I like the android for a couple of reasons:

    1) Cost - I can buy 5 of my current phones for what an apple would cost.
    2) No ****ing iTunes - iTunes is a horrible way to manage files imo. Androids drag and drop interface matches what you're already doing on Windows.
    3) SIM card - Sim cards are awesome. Damage my phone and I can pick up another for $100, swap in my SIM and go. Can't do that with apple.
    4) Less restrictions - Like PoB said, apple tries to lock you into doing things their way. Some songs that you purchase on iTunes are copy protected meaning that if you leave iTunes, you lose your library of protected music also.

    Like I said, I've used both and there hasn't been a single thing that the apple product did that my current android can't at 1/6th the cost.

    I've got both an iPhone 6 (company phone) and Note 4 (personal).

    IPhone is so easy to navigate and use. Its fool proof.

    The Note has a better screen, i can customize the screen, and overall seems to have more individualized options.

    If I had to pick I'd pick the iPhone , because its smaller does everything I need .. But no denying the android has more capabilities out of the box.

    You'l have to jailbreak the iPhone to get similar features..

    I have hated Apple products since they became the "trendy" and "hipster" cool thing to have. I generally didn't like them as I didn't like apples operating system and compatibility issues with certain software. The ONLY apple product I own is an IPOD nano, but it's because it was given to me.

    yeah ive got a mac, and an iphone, wife also has an ipad and iphone, BUT i want to switch to the sony xperia, shit is water proof, and seems better than both samsung and iphone... i cant get the samsung active on verizon or id be all over that, as it can go thru the ringer...

    apple is soooo far behind the times, i dont understand how an ipad pro with a stylus isnt balked at as that was done um like 10 years agao byt non other than hp, and a few others...its racks my brain to understand how apple makes any money when they are bringing old tech basically and trying to sell it off as new and inovative.... yawn apple is so crap... lets be hipsters and go drink out coffees and get excited on how we are going to change the world...

    The I4 is a reliable phone that is super heavy duty and does all the standard issue telephone and text stuff good gps good music good photos ok internet horrible. Its not that flashy piece and it doesn't draw much attention from thieves. The galaxy SIII is much lighter weight works great on the Internet and out performs the I4 the only drawback is reliability. Flimsy vulnerable to viruses and for me easy to loose because its so lightweight and thin. The I5 is better because it has 4g capability. The S4 and I5 both jump upin quality at about the same rate. Im always running a couple years in the past when it comes to the phones and tablets.

    Conclusion Android is best for zipping around the web this and that
    Iphone is best for sturdy rugged phone reliability and virus free

    Herm, I will answer the real question for you. Both are good at displaying your porn. And your snapchat nudes. Really what else do you use your phone for? Dont act like you got to schedule appointments and shit............................

    Here's a question for the Apple fans in the crowd; What does your phone do (that others can't) that justifies the price tag?
