I'm just informing other people with my opinion. An opinion of a smart phone lover, a gamer, a app developer and a smart phone customizer. A truth opinion with no curves or small detours of information like most websites do, wining money from one side or another.
The word '' better '' depends on what you need as user from a phone. You can't just say this or that is just ''better''. Just like that. You have to know ''better'' for what. Especially when it's about technology, operating systems and smart phones.
Apps and market fight: android Vs iOS
At the time of writing this article, there were just over 600,000 apps on Google Play in total on June 2012 (check Wikipedia). Furthermore, about 72% of all of Google Play apps are free.
On the other hand, App Store currently has over 650,000 apps. The average price of an app in the App Store is $2.02. Finally, only 46% apps on App Store were free. (check Wikipedia)
The fight is very tied here but, I can say the difference it's not so great on number of apps, still the advantage goes to Google play for more free apps.
Round one: The winner is Android.
Devices Fight: Android Vs iOS
Here is the ''big deal''! The devices fight point can be given only by the user. I can not tell you what you need.
(Still I would go for an android, because of the variety of the devices I can chose from and a plus is, there are lots of lighter android devices that are framed in those above. iPhone is too heavy 140grams...)
From my point of view Android is again the winner, and the reasons are:
You tell me the winner! What you want from your smartphone?
