I have had an iphone 5 for the last 2 1/2 years. I loved my iPad so I figured why not get the smaller version. I had a Droid X before that and I was really unhappy with it. I love the iPhone except for the tiny screen and ITUNES which sucks complete ass. I am moving away from iPhone strictly because of iTunes. OTherwise I would get a iPhone 6 plus. I would love to have something about the size of an iPad mini or even the iPad be able to be used as a phone. You can do that if you have another phone with it but I mean on its own. .. So I went to the verizon store and looked at all the phones. Did it at Sams Club in case I missed any. narrowed it down to 4 phones and did research all day. read all the reviews and user reviews. I have decided to go with a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. I though the note edge looked cool but the edge apps are not worth the extra money. I would go with the iPhone 6 plus if it were not for iTunes.
Windows is much better for Office 365. Using the Office suite on Mac just isn't as good.
Mac is much better for aesthetic appeal and ease of use.
Android doesn't feature anything proprietary over iOS that a casual user would really benefit from. That said, my next phone will likely be an iPhone depending on how the next generation of Fire phones pan out.
I prefer Android OS to iOS simply because you have more control over it. With iOS it's too Apple centric and too heavy on Apple just deciding "this is the way it will look and be and you will toe our line because Apple."
And before someone goes oh you can jailbreak and be more free, rooting Android > jailbreaking iOS in terms of what all control you have and what all you can do.
As far as Android though I prefer vanilla Android with xposed mods unless I find a ROM that just has me like wow then I'll go flash that ROM.
Sure, the apple os is simple and just works, so it would fit nicely for people needing just a phone. But i'm a bit of a technophile, so i make use of the android functions. Currently running kitkat (sony version)
Android because those phones are cheaper. There is always a risk of a terrible construction (Xperia Sola after 4.0.4 update) and iPhones have longer service lives but that doesn't make up for the insane price tag in my opinion.
Android all the way. Apple is expensive and overrated. The only thing they're really good in is making tablets. For everything else, Android. I wouldn't switch I think just because Apple is way too expensive and I don't like the fact I can't change as much on the software as on Android. I also like to download things.
