Default Re: iphone5 or android phone ?

The iPhone is a perfectly good smartphone. Asking this question is like asking if you should get a ford or Chevy; or Playstation or Xbox. People have their bias, best thing is to go to a store play with their demo phones to see which one you like best.

You know I compare the specs to the android phones and the android phones seem to have more stuff. The best argument anyone has told me is that all the apps are made for iPhones and work better with iPhones, although, I don't know this to be true. Also, there is the rumor that Apple products can't be infested with a virus...

Apples can get viruses, just the same as androids. As for Apps, some are android exclusive, some of apple exclusive, some are on both. REGARDLESS, if there is an app you like on apple, and android doesn't have the exact same one (or vice versa), you can find pretty much the same thing, just under a different name.

The funniest thing to me, is that with the latest iphone update they are pretty much turning their phone into an android.

if you are the kind of person who wants to "tinker" on stuff to make it work better for you, go with the android, if you want to turn it on and it just work (and not be able to "tinker" with it) go with the iPhone

The iphone is a great phone. Android makes some great phones. And there are some crap android phones out there.

iphone is a more controlled experience. All apps have to be approved by Apple. This is good and bad. It limits some of the features that the apps can provide. But it also weeds out a lot of crappy apps that could crash your phone.

Android is an open platform. And devloper and hardware maker can do whatever they want with Android. Which is good and bad. It leads to more inovative apps, but it also leads to a lot more crappy stuff too. It's your job to sift through the good and bad.

In the end it comes down to personal preference. Go try out several phones and see what you like best.

These blanket 'fanboy' statements like

wife has the iphone and I have the Samsung S4. I really don't see a huge difference in functionality. Mine does pretty much anything that hers does. I'm not a big fan of apple while she is. I do love that my screen size is almost twice what hers is. But in the end I only really use the golflogix app, the rest of the time is just calling/text.

The ONLY thing the iPhone5s has is a very fast processor. Other than that, you are paying for braind name recognition.

The iPhone5c is not good. There is a reason Apple is slashing the price...it ain't selling.

Android phones...I like the Motorola Droid...they have dual core processors

You can also root an android phone. If you jailbreak an apple phone, you might be out of luck

Out of luck? not sure what you mean?


Jailbreaking just means you can get apps from other sources then the apple app store. It's really not that hard.

I did it for an early generation Ipod Touch. But have yet to come across a need or desire to root my iphone.

This! Not that it carries much weight but I used to work for Verizon. This is almost exactly what I told my customers. Apple will "just work" 99/100 times while android has more possibilities and is more of an open ended phone.

The things you need to think about are phone size, screen size, and expandable memory.

I would personally have the note 3.

One more thing and this may be too much to think abt in this thread buy over a 6-8 month period most android devices are going to begin to bog down if used heavily. Wiping caches and resetting this phone bring you back to that fast out of the box fast feel. My DNA w quad core 1.5 ghz processors needed a good ole reset. Now I feel like I have a new phone.

I prefer Android.

I pretty much agree with CNET's current list for Verizon (my carrier) . Take a good long look at the S4 and Note 3.

Yeah, I'm going with the Note 3. Now, I just want to figure out if I want to pay full price for it, or just get in a new 2 year contract.
