Used iPhone 4 and Galaxy S3; prefer the Galaxy S3 because it's better at what I want it to do. It's a more open architecture and I can poke and play with it to my heart's content. The music player is somewhat poor and has now been replaced with Spotify :P
The camera is much better than the 4, assuming this is down to software not the lens.

The iP4 is a good phone if you want something simple and does everything for you. It's a "nannying" phone. But if you want a music player, somewhere to store your photos and Facebook, the iPhone is probably what you want.

iOS vs Android - Android. For the simple reason that I don't have to pay to develop for it and I don't have to jump through 10,000 hoops to get software I've written onto the phone that I own.

tl;dr - Choose the right one for what you want. They both have pros and cons in different areas but are about the same overall.

well in my experience IOs phones is better than android!.. especially when it comes to apps stability..

I prefer the iOS experience. Android has responsiveness issues whenever I use it, and that slight delay seriously affects the experience. Responsiveness issues seem few and far between on iOS.

iPhone, too locked down for my needs. Android, if I give enough consideration to the demands of a particular app and how it will work with others then Android will surpass an iPhone's capabilities.

As for performance and responsiveness, like the Air Force say, you can make anything fly if you put a big enough engine in it.

@deceptikon I had responsiveness issues on my S3. Turns out it was due to Samsung's crappy TouchWiz interface. If you flash it with a basic Android ROM it's snappy as hell :) (Bit like Laptops you buy form superstores that come bogged down with all their branded crap)

iPhone... hands down! Android sucks by my opinion but iPhones are going through a hard and challenging war with Samsung.

My responsiveness issues relative to iOS have been with straight Android, as recent as ICS. So while you're certainly right that manufacturers (Samsung especially) have been egregious with their crapware, that's not always the answer when someone mentions UI lag.

Sorry to hear that, when I re-flashed mine it fixed it right away. I am on 4.1.2 Jellybean if that helps at all?

My comment was in general, not directed at anyone in this thread. Though there are certainly many levels of craziness when it comes to preference. Some people are more reasonable, and others are irrationally stubborn.

When it comes down to preferences, specifically, there is no right or wrong, and we should all be grateful for that. My daughter has an iPhone, so I've had a play with one and don't like 'em. I prefer the flexibility of Android.

@Deceptikon Indeed, also with desktop OS's people get extremely crazy. It's quite amusing why people argue about such things because it's all preference and all products are aimed for specific uses and specific people, yet people argue...
