      I never had an iPhone. But let's see what you missed iPhone does not have a an external SD card drive. If you want to upgrade to a bigger memory, be ready to spend another 800 dollars for an upgrade.

        Android is for losers who have nothing else to worry in life. If you are busy doing stuff, you do not have time to worry how icons look, wondering about how bright the colors are. You want rigid phone that doesn't lag and is reliable and relative safe to use.

          Hello. iPhone user here. I'm going to call bullshit on your claim still. First off, your statement comes off as totally passive-aggressive and douchey. Second, you don't HAVE to customize ANYTHING on Android. You can just leave things as is. So when you say, "It's for losers who have no life" is perplexing. I'm sure you spend tons of time on your iPhone.

            Jailbreak is actually more intuitive and fun than rooting

                              Android doesn't allow internal sound! Whyyyy

                                @I'm still trying to make a new name You can't record internal sound on android unless you use a custom rom (Xiaomi's screen recorder supports, and some samsung phones iirc). You can only have mic+internal sounds mixed and the internal sounds are low and bad quality.

                                            Most important about rooting: Extending device life span. Note 3 with Android 9.0 feels like a whole different compared to 5.0 TouchWiz which is unusable nowadays. Btw., my car "entertainment" (basically just a Radio) runs AOSP which Was quite surprising for me. About the back Button: I hate modern androids back button. I prefer the softkey with haptic Feedback on the Note 3 because it is super intuitive, especially if you assign Holding the back Button to reopening that last app

Personally i would not spend more than 400dollar for a Phone anymore because i dont need the performance and other features for Maps, Telegram and Phone. Galileo location is a must though.

Google and Samsung force run updates and backround app, there are simultaneous functions running on desktop preventing proper finger control and pushing into view from all sides, battery life killing mandatory apps, everything is on all the time that everyone asked for instead of having an OS that is moderated by one group like Ios.

                                                                            • Teemu M.

Root and go with an AOSP version of Android 9 with a modern launcher (Pixel/nova), better battery performance, better reactivity, newer Android. Some Apps are a hassle though (pokemon go for example) because they complain about modified devices. As of know, you can work around that though.

I had a samsung s7 and I never even was able to reset the homescreen to its original nice layout.

Samsung makes you write code and shit.

But The biggest reason for Android over Iphone, is if you have a bad experience with one android phone brand, there are other brands that have devices in all price points. If you have a bad experience with an IOS device... well, welcome to android.

Don't like the increasing price or removal of features from new iphones? Too bad, you're stuck in the ecosystem and it's a lot harder to switch.

As a developer that’s why I hate Android.... Why would you buy an app, when you could just download it off web + possibly hacked?! You could even install hacked RUclip... This is the reason why iOS has more quality apps and games But, yes.... iOS has some awesome advanced features, but yet not simple ones that Android had for years:/ But, yeah, you can’t really say which one is better. Ios has its +/- and Android does. It’s based on people’s preferences.
