IPhone vs Android: Pros and Cons?

Postby coburn » Thu May 31, 2012 6:31 am

Neither Android or the iPhone are “better” than the other at everything, both have their own pros and cons.
I personally have a Motorola Droid 2 Global, but I have sold cell phones for the last year and a half, and I have a bit of experience with both Android and iPhone, as well as Blackberry.

Android Pros:
Variety of phone types at a variety of price points and layouts
SD Card slots in most models
Some models have physical keyboards
There are some rugged Android phones (the Casio Commando is a good example)
Most models support Flash.
The operation of various versions of Android are fairly similar.

Android Cons:
No standardized revision
Some models never get operating system updates after 6 months on the market
The lower end models are mostly garbage (like the LG Ally, LG Optimus, and anything by Pantech)
Fewer (if any) custom accessories for each phone model
Open system is more prone to outside attack
No ready interface with iTunes

iPhone Pros:
Crisp Display
iTunes interface (you can use the iPhone as an iPod)
Great sounding speakers (for an item this size)
Better User Interface
Closed system lends a bit better system stability and security (in theory)

iPhone Cons:
Small screen
No physical keyboard
Easily Broken (compared to other contemporary phones)
High Cost
Frequently stolen
Also is known as a “cult” object.
Frequently does not live up to the commercials

Pros:looks like an iPhone, has Siri only on 4s, easy to use even if u never owned an iPhone, it's fluid like sketching screens has no lag at all
Cons:u can't customize the screen, kind of small for some people, some apps on apple u have to pay that are real on adroid
Pros:customizable screen, has a lot of varieties like big or small fat or slim
Cons:maybe laggy sometimes depends on ur phone though, not as fluid as the iPhone when switching screens
