    The Gmail and Maps app on iOS are superior to what's on Android. The Android Maps app still looks like it's coded for GB in many areas. Google developers even pretty much conceded that in some statements they made shortly after Maps released on iOS. If your phone is not on JB then Google Search on iOS is superior, as well.

    Camera+ on iOS is better than almost any 3rd party camera app on Android (and better than most stock camera apps as well). The fact that Android has 40 3rd party camera apps doesn't matter - they're practically all worse than that one iOS app.

    Same goes for iWorks. It's better than practically all the Office Suites on Android - though OfficeSuite Pro 7 comes close with its support for the biggest Cloud Services and revamped User Interface (and practically flawless PDF reader, thanks to Adobe Libraries), QuickOffice is terrible and Documents to Go is barely supported.

    The best 3rd party iOS twitter clients in some cases do not make it to Android. Where is Tweetbot? Facebook and Facebook Messenger on iOS are better than their Android counterparts. Even Google is releasing apps on iOS that has yet to make it over to Android (YouTube Camera, for example).

    All the better IM clients like Beejive and Trillian are on iOS, work better on iOS, and are better supported on iOS.

    Where is the $0.99 Ad-Free Words with Friends for Android? It doesn't exist. Have you used the Android version period? It simply doesn't compare.

    There are barely any apps on Android where iOS doesn't either have that same app or have something else that is clearly superior to it. Developers on that platform are willing to put in the time and effort to make great apps because people actually pay for them, in much higher numbers than on Android (which still lags ridiculously behind Apple despite having a ton more users in App Store income). WhatsApp is just getting a Holo UI version in Beta. How long ago was ICS released, again?

    If Apps are a big deal, the iPhone is clearly better. IMO, the main strength of Android is being an early adopter of new technology. Because of the way the Android hardware ecosystem is set up, OEMs are forced to adopt these technologies quickly in the fight to differentiate themselves from competing OEMs. So things like BT 3.0 +HS, WiFi Direct, DLNA, NFC, WiFi Tethering (actually that was on the HD2 before any (I think) Android Phones, but I digress), Higher Resolution Screens, HDMI output, etc. tended to come to Android before iOS.

    If you can care less about that (I practically use barely any of that except the screen on phones I've owned that had HD screens), then Android devices suddenly stop looking so attractive, and you realize you were buying into the hardware moreso than the actual OS or services ecosystem.

    Opinions don't change the facts, so asking for opinions on whether you should switch is fundamentally a worthless thing to do. Only way to make that decision is to use both devices for a decent span of time. This is why I used to have 2 active smartphone lines with data plans when I had T-Mobile. So that I could have two completely different devices and could come to serious decisions on which I wanted to use (SIM Swapping made that easy).
    Right, because those are the only apps out there..smh.

    Funny iPhone is "superior" but Android is outselling it when it comes to world sells.

    I could care less about what phone you want, does not affect me. My point was to someone complaining people aren't neutral when they clearly are not neutral.

    I think its pretty amazing how their is 1 in iPhone and it sells so good. There are probably 20+ if not more different android handsets that have been released in the past 6 months so of course its going to outsell the iPhone.

    Oh please, business 101 tells you it isn't about supply, it's about supply AND demand. Supply has not been and issue with either OS, so now it comes down to demand.

    Must of missed that course when I went to college. So u think if there were let's say 3 different iphones with different screen sizes and overall size that the iPhone wouldn't sell better than it does now? Its like saying hey wow look at that the whole Chevy car,truck,SUV, and van lineup outsold just the ford fusion. Its not very spectacular to me that 20+ android handsets outsell 1 iphone.

    Had the i5 about 5 times (switch phones constantly) and I can honestly say the note 2, s3, and nexus 4 are all better overall phones.

    It's also common sense. If it is superior, doesn't matter how many others there are. iPhone used to outsell Android, what happened was people got tired of basically having the same look and feel with each new update and new phone released.

    Not really. In the phone world there is a lot of ppl who don't always go for the best phone available. Do u always get the best specd phone or the phone that best fits your needs? I know people who like big screens so they would never consider anything under 4.8 screen no matter the specs. Also people who don't have the money or don't want to spend $200-$300 on an upgrade. U have tons of options like that with android which is why its no surprise to me that they outsell the iPhone. Its amazing people have one look one screen size to pick from and the iPhone still sells like hot cakes.
    Just because u aren't tired of the same look and feel doesn't account for the millions of other people who love it.

    I buy what is best and the best deal, which had NOTHING to do with price. Apple is not innovative, hasn't been in many, many years. Stealing others ideas is not innovation.

    Please quote where I even mentioned Android at all in my post. Apple claims people steal from then and they scream from the roof tops how innovative they are.

    There is also a difference in flat out lying and also being so hypocritical as to steal from others and then claim people are trying to steal from you and then trying to sue competitive out of their way.

    If you're saying that I'm claiming that Google has never done anything wrong then it's you that's blind.

    They don't do that. Google will probably start suing Apple also, because Apple is going nuts with it. That is why Samsung has started suing Apple back now. Even the courts said Apple shouldn't have received the patents they did. Apple started this many years ago with Microsoft and HP. Apple suing for things they have no business suing over because they have competition is nothing new.

    Exactly, it has become their business model, they left innovation long ago. Just like Samsung is expected to reveal flexible screens this year, that is doing something different to put you ahead of the competition, not trying to ban then from selling.

    Well Samsung has also made the only phone/tablet hybrid (that I know of), and the S-Pen is an awesome bit of tech. Those screens seem a bit out there tho lol
