I've had both, and am nowhere near technologically challenged (I worked in IT security for years until I decided to stay home with my children). Both are good in their ways. It really just depends on personal preference and how much you want/like to play with your tech.

The experience with Android is more customizable (I've had an iPhone for two years and the only things I truly miss are widgets), any the cameras are much better than they used to be. The apps are comparable between both--there are some apps that are only available on Android and some that are only available on Apple, but most can be found on both now. iPhones are generally stable and usually don't freeze or have any problems. However, Android has gotten much better over the last couple of years.

At this point, the only reasons I have an iPhone and not an Android are because I have an iPad (syncing) and my husband got an iPhone through work and travels a lot (FaceTime and picture sharing through iCloud). Those things could easily be addressed with an Android phone, though. The biggest reason is that I have no desire to have a phone with a huge screen. My hands are small and most Android phones are uncomfortable for me.

Be not afraid of going slowly; be afraid only of standing still.

I've never had an iPhone but I have an iPad (the original one) and an iPod touch so other than the phone part, I think they are pretty much like the iPhone.

I prefer my Android because it just seems I have more options. There is supposedly more software for iPhone but I have found everything I could want in the Android Playstore/Market.

Some stated here you can write your papers on the iPhone. Do some not realize you can also get free Office package programs for writing your documents on the Droid? I think some iPhone lovers have not really used the Droids and think those great things they do on the iPhone are not also possible on the Android. Others are used to the Operating system and don't want to change to have to learn something new, and I really don't blame anyone for that.

I suppose for ease of use, the iProducts are more "same-ish" so they seem easier to use to some because of that. I don't mind learning new things and the variety and options of the Android phones.

Even though I do have some iProducts, I do agree with another who stated she didn't like Apple's marketing tactics. I don't either and think their products are over priced. The iProducts I have were given to me as gifts. I do like them but probably would not buy them for myself.

I had a android for a few years and really liked it. Most people I know have the iphones and they are just too small for me to see. Now that I am getting older my eyesight is not what it use to be so I need to bigger screen. Now with that said I just downgraded to a basic phone because the thought of spending all of that money a month for a smartphone was really starting to bother me. For me it just was not a fiscally responsible thing to have and I am really surprised how much more relaxed I am without a smartphone.

I had an driod for about a week, personally I didn't like it so I went back to my blackberry. I just recently purchased the iPhone 4s and I love it. It is so easy to use, very important since I am not real good with tech.

Android, for the reasons LEC358 listed and also because I think that Apple is not an honest company.

One reason that I feel this way is related to what they tried to do with ebooks (colluded with all the publishers to start using an "agency model" where no retailer could sell ebooks for less than any other retailer, prices were the same everywhere, no sales were allowed, etc.). There's been a rather large antitrust trial over all this and the five major publishers have agreed to settle with the DOJ, but Apple refuses. Overall, instead of trying to compete honestly in the free market, it seems that Apple tries to limit the free market to benefit themselves and take choice/competition away from consumers. In my opinion, this is not good for consumers. For this reason and a few others, I do not (and never will) own any iStuff.

I currently have the IPhone 5. This is my 3rd iPhone, my first one was the iPhone 3 and then the iPhone 4. I always liked the iPhone since I could download Pages (the word document program through Apple) and can write papers on my phone during my hour long commute to school. By doing that, it made the life of my computer longer and I haven't had any issues with the iPhones. I think it depends on how you use the phone and what you are looking for in a smartphone.

I like my iPhone. But when my contract is up and my current phone dies, I'd consider buying an android. It may be sacrilege to some, but beyond some aesthetics, layout and the occasional unique feature, smart phones are largely a lot alike. Make a list of what you need and what is essential to you, and go from there. For me, it's mostly battery life (day to day and long term), decent camera and ease of use. Everything else that I need - email, gps app, facebook, etc -- all smart phones have.

Depends on how much you like fiddling around with settings and the way your phone actually looks. I like the different homescreen/launcher options I have with Android, plus I can customize the settings a lot more on my droid than I can on my iPad. Also, you can get a better Android phone (specs wise) for less money compared to Apple.

ETA: also Androids have bigger screens than the iPhone (almost universally at this point) so you have bigger text on Droids than on iPhones (and you can change the text size too).
