The Android vs. iPhone debate is as hold as the Android platform itself. And the general consensus has been the same ever since Samsung first came out with their Galaxy line (the only Android phones that can TRULY compete on level footing with the iPhone in every regard):
-Get an iPhone if you aren't particularly tech savvy and only use your phone for basic things. You're a lot more limited in what you can do, but there's also a lot less room to cause damage to the phone because those limitations prevent you from accessing the low level capabilities needed to do things you shouldn't be.
-Get an Android if you are tech-savvy and know your way around a computer fairly well. You can do a LOT more with Android and you can get a lot of things for free that you would have to pay for on iPhone. The Galaxy line of phones in particular tend to have more features than equivalent iPhones.
Don't bother getting an iPhone if you plan on "jailbreaking" it (unlocking it so that you can install apps and media files obtained from sources other than iTunes/App Store). By doing so, you are essentially negating every advantage it has over the Android.
There is an inherent problem with the current generation iPhone (6/6s) in that the overall build quality isn't what it was with the older 4/4s/5/5s. The newer phones are prone to getting extremely hot (to the point of overheating) and are extremely fragile compared to older generation models. My PERSONAL opinion is that if you're comparing current generation models, you should go Android regardless. From what it looks like, Apple recognizes their mistake and will be going back to a design more like that of the older models because of it. If you're in the market right now, however, do not look at a 6 or 6s. Get an Android, or if you're okay with an older generation phone, get your hands on an older 5s. Or wait another year before buying for the next generation iPhone to eventually come out.1
