My husband and I constantly go back and forth on which is better. He’s had an android phone for almost half a year and he loves it! I’ve meanwhile never had either an android or apple, but I’m thinking of getting a really nice phone and I’ve always wanted to try an iphone, on the other hand my husbands phone (the motorola photon) is really nice too. I don’t want to buy the iphone and regret it and compare it to his, on the other hand I dont want to buy the photon and find it’s shortcomings and wonder if I should have gone with the iphone.
If you could let me know your prefrences and why it would help! 🙂
I don’t want to use the phone for work. I would download apps and play games. I would use the phone to play my music (I have it all on itunes currently). I would use it to check my email, facebook, etc.
Especially if you switched from either to the other I would love to hear why!

I just went freek being a blackberry super fan to the new Samsung galaxy 3 and I’m in LOVE. Never had an iPhone but I have an iPad so… Essentially the same thing but bigger! My bf has the iPhone 4 and it’s good… But I prefer my phone!
Edit: no idea what “freek” is… I meant “from”… Stupid apple! Haha

My vote is for the Samsung Galaxy as well. Love it. Gorgeous phone that is essentially a super fast mini computer/phone/camera. I have lots of Apple products as well but have never been able to justify buying a $300 Iphone when I already have multiple Ipods, etc. I personally think that a lot of people buy the Iphone to just have an Iphone. Its kinda in line with buying a Louis Vuitton just to be carrying a Louis Vuitton around. In other words form over function BUT with the Samsung you get both. 🙂

Thanks!! I’ve not spent enough time around both to judge! It helps to hear from someone who has.

Androids. I have the Google Nexus S. It’s my baby, love the phone.
I was actually discussing this topic tonight in my marketing class. Our prof informed us that the new iPhone 5 does not actually come with Google Maps/GPS and thus they might have problems competing with the Galaxy.
Personally, I cannot justify paying $699 for an iPhone, when I got my Android for $50.

I’m defiantly an Apple girl….actually my family is kind of an Apple family – cousins, aunts/uncles, parent (mom has a droid – blech hate it! Thankfully she is ordering the iPhone 5), etc. I have everything apple…iPod, iPhone, Macbook, and going to get an iPad after the wedding! I just find them so user-friendly and have way less problems. My mom’s droid is so glitchy and difficult to use.

I have a Droid Razr (purple woot) that works great. Granted, when I first got it, it had a couple of glitches, but they updated the OS and it’s fine now. I’m definitely an Android girl. 🙂
I’ve looked at Apple phones, but they simply don’t appeal to me, what with the high cost, and restrictions of certain things (not to mention that ‘if you don’t have the absolute newest at all times, you’re considered nothing’ mentality some folks have).

I had a Droid Incredible 2 and had to go through 5, yes 5, phones before I finally got one that would turn on and work. It did work, for 6 months, then would continuously shut down for no reason, call people when I hadn’t pressed the call button, etc. It was a terrible phone and I hated it. Before that I had a blackberry that I loved, but wasn’t as compatible with music, apps, and games as my droid was. After my Droid I switched to the iPhone 4 (FREE!) and will never look back! I love how user friendly it is and I haven’t had a single problem with it. My FI went through a similar experience with his Incredible and hasn’t had any issues with his iPhone. Since then we have gotten a MacBook and plan to get a iPad in a few years.

My option doesnt fit. I think Android is better after having switched to iPhone. I had the Droid Incredible which I loved but it started getting really faulty with lots of errors and crashes and memory issues. I switched to iPhone and was so much happier until FI got the Samsung Galaxy. It is amazing. Wider screen, sleeker phone, and the system runs so fast and smooth. I will definitely be switching next upgrade!!

Android! I’ve never had any apple products of my own but I’ve played around with FMIL’s iphone and I thought it sucked in comparison.

- Wedding: April 2013 - Rhode Island
My fiance has an Android. Playing with his phone is what made me want to get a smart phone in the first place, and I also knew I wanted to get an iPhone.
I’ve always had a preference for Macs, and the new iPhone 5 is just amazing! I absolutely love it and now can’t use his Android at all. It just drives me crazy.

After hating my little blackberry for he last two years, I just got a galaxy note 2 & think it’s the coolest thing ever. It’s relatively big, but I’m getting used to it. Triple points for the stylus!
