This thread is funny.
Comparing Iphone to Android phone is bad because there are so many android phones.
I got an android phone that at the time was in the higher/middle of phones. I FUCKING HATED THE THING. It froze all the time, text messages would randomly get deleted. I would try to answer a call and it would freeze. Sometimes all of my apps would just disappear. So many issues. But, I have seen people who have the highest of high end android phones and they love them. That's great for them.
Iphones are for people who just want something that works. All the apps go through a screening process. It updates and syncs easy. There isn't much too it.
Androids are for people who want to customize the shit out of it and don't mind some things not always working. The low end android phones are generally miserable.
I will be the first to say though, that the new Windows OS is quite beautiful. I am absolutely a mac user when it comes to computers and prefer the Iphone to any of the Android phones, but goddamn they did some great work with the UI. I just still hate IE9 and it uses Bing rather than Google... which I also don't care for. But the UI is beautiful.
