it totally depends on you, apple or rather iOS is closed source meaning the development code is with only apple and only apple can modify or create better features in iOS where as Android is open source and the code is available for all to improvise upon. Now due to this reason there are lots of apps in Google (most of them are useless and shit but still ) and apple appstore has limited no of apps. Apple is very well known for its security.
Apparently, people will say that apple is less vulnerable and very secure, although it's quite the opposite. I'm not saying android is more secure or it has less virus but the fact is apple has more vulnerabilities than android.
Now again, if you have knowledge about bootloaders, ROM, Flashing, Kernals, etc etc then you can install different ROM's like MIUI, BlissRom, CyanogenMod etc etc whereas if you are buying apple, you are stuck with plain old iOS. You can even change your bootanimation if you phone is rooted.
Apple graphic specs are damn good but the phones are very fragile and performance wise Android phones beats apple easily. Also Android phones are tough and have good build. I dropped my phone like so many times (read 100+ times) and my phone doesn't even have a single crack.
Now you can root a android phone. Rooting is a process that allows you to attain root access to the Android operating system code (the equivalent term for Apple devices id jailbreaking). It gives you privileges to modify the software code on the device or install other software that the manufacturer wouldn't normally allow you to.
Apple's cloud system is topnotch, Android doesn't even come close in cloud tech.
Considering all these, i would tell you to choose Android. Rest is your wish.
And i am planning to buy Xiaomi Mi5... that phone is a beast.
