Flame war coming in! Android is better because its not price hiked for the name, they're more durable, have more customization and freedom, have more than one soft button (the home button row), and dominate 80% of current smartphone sales. Also, Apple is evil.

No we all have friends with Droids, and have played with them plenty. We know exactly what we're "missing"

I chose the galaxy so all of my chargers for my older android devices wouldn't work and I'd have to buy new ones. (well, the first four words are true)

And 90% of the people here shouting out how much better Apple is than Android have never actually used an Android for long enough to have an actual opinion.

Agreed Apple is the original. But the reason you don't see people in line for Android is that there are new phones being released throughout the year, unlike iOS. More choice for Android is both a plus and a minus. And I would argue that at the high end, Android phones meet or exceed iOS.

Just like I don't understand why anyone would be a member of the Republican Party, I don't understand why anyone would use anything but an iPhone.
But, even though I don't understand, I am very glad that we're not all the same!

iOS, wishing I had my android back.
Apple thinks they know best, I can't customize my search engine, my maps, my keyboard.
Allow me make my iPhone mine, and I would never change.
But they have the best camera hands down.

Say what you will about Apple, but DESIGN-wise, nothing beats an Apple product. They are beautiful little machines. Maybe, you can't customize your keyboard as you'd like, but I definitely have a high appreciation for the sleekness, and simplicity of their products as a whole.

so steve jobs said "let there be apple" and everything was good. But the consumer, who only wanted to use flash on his device said "but oh great and powerful jobs, may we download third party apps?" And jobs replied "nay my child, for i knowest what is best for flock. But yay, if you jailbreakest

Why have a cheap imitation when you can have the original and the standard, Apple. Ever since the IPhone, all other smarts phone copy its look and shape. Also, I don't see people standing in line for android. Apple is the standard, Apple is the original.

As a developer, they're a horrible platform to create apps or make money on. The android market is much too fragmented with different devices, buttons, processors, and there's no easy way for users to pay. Until they figure something out, they're cheap and worthless (Exception is kindle though)

SOH started as an iphone app. Then ipad. Then android phone. Then Kindle Fire. It still gets about 4x more daily downloads from Apple's app store than from Google's. Amazon is the wildcard, as it can sometimes get hot and blow away all other SOH downloads for a while.

Anyone who actually used an Android and switched over to Apple either had a cheap p.o.s. Android or was just too computer illiterate to understand anything but Apple's one-size-fits-all products.

It's also available for Android and Kindle Fire, but since it has been available for iOS a longer time that's one factor affecting the poll numbers.
