I figured some things out. So Steve Jobs was hands down one of the best sales people you could ever ask for. He could sell you a paper bag for $100 if he truly wanted to.

Alright, I'll agree with you on that, the man was a fantastic salesman...

What people seem to forget though is that a MAC is half the power of a PC and yet it sells for 3x as much. The Iphone may be compatible with other Apple products, but just TRY to attach your Iphone to your Windows run computer. It is a pain and honestly very difficult. Apple products are meant to pair with other Apple products.

...but WHAT? PC being doubly powerful as Mac? Where are you getting these stats? I regularly work with Mac and the Macs I use are far superior to the PCs. This is in a university setting as well. No one will buy PCs with as much power as Macs unless they know what they're doing. Therefore a baseline Mac will always be superior to a baseline PC. Sure you can build your own PC for about the same price as a Mac and it will be damn good. But that's another story. Also using an iPhone on a PC isn't difficult at all, do you even have experience with the phone? You lost credibility with me at that point.

The Android is far more powerful and does not only pair with Windows and MAC, but also Linux. 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.

I'll accept some of this as well...

Apple is simply a trendsetter, while Android is the life changer making it the true Smartphone. Let the Apple sheep follow the herd, because unlike Android users, they will not see the cliff that is ahead of them.

...but seriously, calling iOS users sheep? It's called a market. Most people don't need the features a high-end Android offers. It's all about preference.

A bit of research over the past few weeks has really given me the answer to why Android is better than Apple. Smile

tl;dr? Eh. There's no such thing as "better". It's personal preference. I'm an Android user 'til the end, but there's nothing wrong with the iPhone. Stop being elitist.
