It really depends on what you're looking for.

Android offers a free/open experienc to its users. While iOS limits your experience to what they want it to be. Each has it rpos and cons.

Andoid offers you the option to upgrade memory using an SD card (most Android phones), iOS, well, you're stuck with 8, 32 or 64 GB. Each capacity represents a different cost.

While there's cloud storage on both platforms, not everyones has unlimited access to the internet, nor always. So being out of a hotspot really makes it difficult to store that info to then have memory storage available.
Plus, if the device fails you can kiss your "un-clouded" info good-bye.

Android gives you access to a removable battery (most Android phones). Which is very good when battery problems appear, also if you're a heavy user and can't wait for your phone's battery to re-charge, a replacement battery will take care of this. iOS, Apple, doesn't. If you're experiencing battery issues, good luck, chances are you're gonna end up paying extra just to replace a battery.

iOS doesn't have widgets. Not too much of a problem if you don't really use/need them. But again, on Adroid you have the option to enable/disable them, which even if you don't use widgets it would still be neat to have the option to devide by yourself.

Apple doesn't have NFC technology and refuses to adapt to this "revolutionary technology".

iOS doesn't allow you to multitask.

While Apple limits your experience, this is exactly why the iOS experience is what it is. By preventing/limitating what you can and can/t do, they guarantee that each user will have the same experience as the other.

On the other hand, iOS is easier to use than Android. Even a child can use an iPhone. Then again, on Andorid you'll find "Easy Mode", which is a simpler display of the OS.

Both OS's have their good and bad things. None of them's perfect. You have to look at each one individually to find which one suits you better.

However, "Steve Wozniak, one of the FOUNDERS of Apple does not use an Iphone, but a Google Nexus and has been quoted to say that the Iphone is good, but an Android is just simply better and more powerful."

If you still need help deciding, that may set things straight to you.
