Guys I am writing here since there's always so much talk about Android vs. IOS and Samsung vs. Apple. Currently I'm using Iphone 4S and before this I had Galaxy S2. When I had Galaxy, my friend who is a big Apple fan, used to say that once I use an Apple device, I would never think of any other brand. However, now that I have used both Samsung/Android and Apple/iOS I think the case is not exactly the same.
At the outset, I must say whether it is Android vs. IOS or Samsung vs. Apple, all have their pluses and minuses. When I switched from GS2 to Iphone 4S, the biggest disadvantage that I felt was of smaller screen. Since I extensively use my phone for game playing, that was the biggest issue. GS2 was lighter and bigger, while Iphone 4S is heavier and smaller. And there is almost no difference in graphics and game playing (at least to the extent of Real Racing 3). Even it was lil bit more smooth on my Galaxy.
Then I started facing another problem in iphone. The game started crashing and a time came that I was unable to play it at all. This issue wasted a lot of my time, energy and the advancement that I had made in the game. However, I tried to find a solution online and I was lucky enough to get one. The solution was the simplest unless someone knows it. I just had to restart the phone and all was fine again. Now i am back on track with my game but the point is, I'm not enjoying the game as much as I was enjoying it on GS2.
Then iOS is a closed OS and not as customizable as Android. Those who like to change appearance and looks of their phone's UI frequently, will feel very much restricted if they switch from Android to iOS. But that's personal choice and something one can easily live without.
But admittedly, iOS is faster and perhaps more efficient OS. It looks mature and clean. Although switching between applications is not as easy as I felt it on Android, somehow it appears quicker.
Then comes the app store. Both stores are big and have paid and unpaid apps and they too have their advantages and disadvantages. iOS apps usually have better looks/UIs. Apple store also looks more mature and clean, but that's more money hungry as well.
Internet was faster on GS2 it also had the advantage of a large screen but except that there was not much difference in overall experience. On a whole, I am not as much impressed by iOS/Apple as I was myself expecting.
At last, its about personal choice. If I have to make a choice between Iphone 5 and GS4, I may choose GS4. But both are good in their own worlds. The battle between iOS and Android is no more the same. Also, the edge that Apple initially had over other brands (mature product, better display resolution) is no more there. Android has polished with time and Samsung has perhaps presented it better than any other brand. Even apart from Samsung, there's big variety of brands and types of phones (can't ignore screen size) running android. However this choice is not available in case of iOS.
Well the thing is that the world of cell phones has become so big and exciting over time that it's extremely difficult for a single brand to maintain its supremacy. Everyone is coming up with something new. However, a couple of them are better at this art than others.
