    COMPANY: Apple
    Apple hardware: iphone, ipad, MacBooks, and many other products
    Apple Software: iOS, MacOS...
    Apple web apps: ...

    COMPANY: Google
    Main hardware: Pixel, Chromebook, Chromecast, and not many others
    Google software: I mean, it's a long list, but the one of this subject: ANDROID that's very versatile
    Google web apps: Google, USclip, Gmail... let's sum it up by the Google Alphabet Initiative

    My point is that at the end of the day, I am an apple hardware fan, and prefer it's infrastructure, however, I enjoy using all of google's applications because of it's versatility. Heck, I use google chrome on all my apple hardware even thought it's super heavy on it.
    I don't believe one is superior to another, it's just a phone, very expensive ones. As Middleware engineer at home, I have a 3 windows laptops, a Macbook for everyday use and Linux server. weirdly enough because it's cheaper to have them and build than a phone and I enjoy using all of em for all my home ecosystem.

    now let's discuss things that really matters: Cereal before or after pouring the milk?

    What really pisses me off is that many of the apps that are free on android you have to buy on IOS Appstore. Play store is more user friendly...appstore just wants me to pay for every sh** I download. Also without USA market would be Apple totally screwed. In the US is not a lot of choices what phone to choose, like we have in Europe, so everybody sheepishly buys an Iphone. I kinda get it ...it is like common thing there to get an Iphone. Nobody thinks about the choice.

    Apple is not better than Android, it is better than at least 80% of all android phones, I don’t know about the others, but of course, as an IPhone user I can tell you, I’ve never experienced a single bug, and I’ve used android before and it’s completely different. iPhone is expensive as fuck, but to me, it’s worth it, plus people buy it because of the brand not because of the stats that nobody cares about, so what, it’s a clean phone, it’s worth it, never seen lag, never seen apps open in 20 seconds(cough cough, Snapchat had to make an android version of their app because it was slow on those devices)

    Every apple user would tell me "It's my first phone and I've gotten use to it". Same with me, and yet, without comparing it to other phones, I still took a hammer to it.

    I've been using Android for my whole life, except for the time the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus came out, the plus caught my attention and decided to give it a try. Three weeks later, I returned it and got a Pixel XL instead, and I still have it but upgraded to a Pixel 3 since. I couldn't use half the apps I use on Android, file managing DIDN'T EVEN EXIST on iOS 10, the iTunes stuff blew my mind on how stupid and useless it was, and just the inflexibility of it. My friends gave me a TON of crap when I returned it and got a Pixel XL, but I can't switch to iOS for all of those reasons I mentioned. If Apple adds a bunch of functionality to iOS soon I might consider getting another iPhone, but for now, my Pixel 3 is a gem and I don't see myself ever getting rid of the thing!

    What sucks is as a high schooler, I do not get to do things with my friends phone wise due to apple's lack of crossover, it's like every one under the age of 18 has an iPhone, out of the people I have communicated with through phone, about 75% of them have iPhones, then the most popular phone after that is the Samsung brand including me, then LG, then the lower popularity phones.

    Space Dude 11 days ago

    Here are some of my reasons:
    *Android* has thousands of different awesome apps and games.
    *Apple* has probably just a couple of hundred that aren't even good. For example there's no good video editor apps.
    On *Android* everything is really easy to find
    On *Apple* it takes me about 1 hour to find anything.
    On *Android* if you wanna hide an app, you can easily do that.
    On *Apple* it's impossible to do so...
    And these were just the main resons. There's way more things I could think of. Basically...
    ... Android is much better.
    But you know, it's just my opinion. You can plug in those TicTacs in your ears and pretend you don't hear me -_-

    • Gismo TB

      Just as you now. The Samsung Phone cost $500 more then the new iPhone 10. If you want a Macbook it cost you $1000. atlest if you get the Air. That is good enof for most work on a laptop. If you getting a Lenovo Tinkpad (that is as good as a MacBook), you have to pay more then $1000. Maybe $500-$1000 more. Just saying … Its a myte that Apple produkts are more expensive. Check the prices your self.
      Don't listen to the fanboys that love to hate on Apple. They lie alot.
      You no the diffrens betwen a Windows/Androide fanboy and a Apple Fanboy?
      - The Win/Androide fanboys like to lie and trash all apple produkts …
      And are mostly kids that get cheep and 2.hand produkts from there parents. And they compere the price on a 2-5year old produkt, with a new Apple produkt, that is made for business and work. Of course it's more expensive. because it's made to take a harder workload, and more durable. All Pro Equipment are like that. Even thos computers you have to buy Windows, to get a OS. Do you really think that Intel and Nivida and so on, sell there produkt cheeper to Asus, Dell and the others, then they do to Apple.
      - The Apple Fanboys talks about the good things about Apple produkts …

  • Gismo TB
    Gismo TB 11 days ago

    You better hire a person who can use iOS, OSX and other Apple produkts. Stop the bashing of things you don't now noting about. and trashing the devices because you don't know the features.
    - Changing to new iPhone: Just put in the Apple-ID, and the Phone is like the old phone, when it starts up.
    If you have turned of the saving of pitures on your iCloud. You probably use Google Photo, and all your pitures are there. That also mean its in you Google acount on any device.
    Having the option to install random games and apps, are like … No no no … I don't want keyloggers, hakkers and idiots to get in to my data. Thats why I buy an iPhone, and not a Androide.
    You have apps you dont use - Easy, delete them.
    I have had my iPhone 6S about 3 years, I think. Maybe longer. Don't have no one of this problems you talk about. I think you can stop using iTunes on iPhone 5S. I don't remember that fare back.
    You really need to learn who the Apple products work. You are like a beginner and a novice.
