    Apple all the way. Better UX. Better integration across devices (Apple watch, HomePod, Apple TV, iMac, iPad) and the way AirPods work across all!

    Android, for ethical reason

     
    Open Source.

    While in some ways I like this feature of Apple's, I also like being able to have multiple Android devices that are not linked. I also like the freedom to do whatever I want with my device.

    But where Android really stands out is the ability to NOT have to buy overpriced hardware just to use my devices.

    I've tried both and I'm all in on Apple. iPhone, multiple iPads, MacBook Pro, AirPods, ATV all are great and work seamlessly together.

    While Android is definitely cheaper, I feel Apples quality is better but the major advantage is that the company that makes the hardware also makes the software for it. I used to build my own PC's but just got tired of updating individual drivers etc etc and with Android, each phone company slaps their own software on top...its a mess imo

    As for the price, honestly, I just keep each device longer. I don't need a shiny new phone or computer every year or 2 where realistically the major advance in in the phone is just the camera. My current iPhone X from late 2017 is still working great. I'll probably wait till there is a major update before replacing it.

    Android. The flexibility of the OS lets me customize the phone to make it my own. Also I use Pixel phones. Heck, I started with the Nexus phones! Remember those?

    I've had every Pixel since they came out. I wouldn't change to any other Android phone. I hate the software that other companies put on their phones over top of Android. The Pixel line gives a great plain Android experience.

    I'm glad to hear that. Everyone I know that has them loves them. I just keep finding an excuse to grab the big Galaxy Notes every time and end up barely using the features

    Edit: AND overpaying for them!

    Yeah... I'm a Galaxy guy.

    My first smart phone was an Apple... but, at the time it seemed everyone had an iPhone and the rebel in me wanted something different.

    I got one of the early Samsung Galaxy phones and have upgraded off and on up my latest phone... haven't looked back since.
