Default A debate of Android VS iPhone

Man...
I just got done a huge debate with a dude on Facebook, about iPhones VS Android
Clearly, he doesn't understand what "open source" means. And he doesn't understand, also, that iPhone is stuck on one idea, where Android's Open Source capabilities can reach unfathomable depths and lengths, and leave iPhones in the dust. -.-
I tried my best to own him, considering I'm running on no sleep. But, if you wanna read the debate, lol feel free:

Androids VS iPhones - Pastebin.com

Note: If you're wondering why I posted this in here, it's because I'm a ZTE Force user, and it's all about Rooted Android and Jailbroken iPhones. :P
Also, feel free to add why you think Android is better than iPhones, on whatever scale. I'd love to hear more reasons you think why Androids > iPhones, as I cannot possibly think of anymore myself. I love trash-talking Apple.

It's cause they're desperate. Lol. They're making them and cutting corners on durability, cause they're a dying breed lol.

My roommate has a iPhone 4s,I hate the thing.
I agree that the androids are better in a number of ways,(Customization,Rooting, & Jailbreaking).
BTW,He also has an Apple Mac Book lappy.I think it sux too,
And he seems to think you do have to clean neither one(Software cleaning).

People are only about iPhones because it's a fad. "You're only cool if you have an iPhone." You can't do shit on one. Excuse my language. I've already converted 2 of my coworkers to android. They were hardcore iPhone freaks. Now they wonder why they even bought iPhones in the first place.

Android is open source. A lot of the drivers and extra software placed on the phone by the manufacture are not. If they were cm10 would already be completed

Comparing android to the iPhone is to big because there are shit loads of androids on the market. The only androids you can truley use to 1 up the iPhone are Nexus devices and GPE devices, as they are vanilla android (the nexus at least). Android vs iOS is the true statement but there's no point in even arguing because android was the one that bit that chunk out of the apple logo in the first place lol #AOSPlife

Right, android IS open source. So, once you remove the limitations (rooting), it becomes open source. All it takes is a matter of time to unlock it. It's built on open source, therefore, because it's Linux based, it's open source. Am I right?

Hold on. After I rooted, ROM'd, & themed my Warp Sequent (ZTE N861) I put my phone up against an iCrap4 & 4s. By the time we were done, both my buds threw their iPhones in the dirt swearing "never again!" The point in this is that my phone - with approximately half the specs theirs had - smoked the i.duds and newfound Android lovers seen the light, lol.

the difference is, iphones are better for people who dont have any business owning a smartphone. theyre like the fisher price of smartphones, big colorful buttons, stupidly simple to do your average mindless task. you want advanced customization and capability though you want android

i dont know anything about their hardware. dont care to know. but ive used one before and ios is made for the technologically impaired. it is idiot proof, which makes things alot harder on people who know what they are doing and want more advanced functionality

Well, this seems more like bashing on iOS rather than a debate... A pity...

PS: Apple's not the only company getting stuff manufactured by Foxconn...

Wow,If Foxconn is making mobo's for Apple's iPhones.Then I know that the iPhone is crap for sure.
In the computer world,Foxconn is known as one of the crappiest mobo's made,Along with ECS mobo's.

right i mean if someone has a different opinion speak up we can debate...

but i dont see anyone presenting any argument. and i have used one i personally hate it. it has its uses yes but its not for the advanced user and in my opinion they are overpriced too. you get an iphone if you want to look cool, you get an android if you want to do cool things

There are androids that look cool but you've got to remember customer loyalty. Apple could honestly make shit on a stick, put a shiny apple logo on it, and people will buy it simply because its apple. But apple isn't the only one who could do this, Samsung could make a galaxy turd and people will buy it because of customer loyalty. I won't lie to you guys, I love android but iOS7 was pretty damn polished in my opinion. the phones are built properly and the OS is optimized for the phone. But then I though about it, why am I going to sign a 2 year contract with a phone because it looks nice, I could get a nexus 4 for half of the price and do more than I ever could with the iPhone. It all just depends on who you are, kit Kat 4.4 is nice, iOS7 is nice, just explore your options and weigh out your pros and cons between the two before you get tricked by a brand.

I duno what version of ios i used. But i just remembered the most major drawback. Upgradable storage. You can put 64 gb in an android for like $50 extra. Hell if you wanna rig it for a full sized sd you can go 128 maybe even 256

The title of the thread was slightly misleading. I thought you were asking for an actual debate . Any debate on here would be moot, its on Androidforums, the arguments will be severely biased and one sided.

But just to add my view, everyone is different and so are their preferences. Apple products in general are made with the thought of simplicity behind them. They are created so that a person who is 5 years old or 80 years old, can pick them up and learn to use it in minutes. The major drawback being the lack of customization and options. A lot of people are intimidated when they have too many options to choose from. Others know what they want and are willing to spend a few hours to get it. Android being obviously the one with a lot more customization. However, that doesn't make it "better". Each platform appeals more to a certain audience. We are all individuals.

In short, Apple (iOS) products are for those who prefer to have a device that is ready to go and simple to use right out of the box . While android is more for those who enjoy learning something new while personalizing the piece of hardware/software that they paid for.

That is no reason against iOS. There are also Android devices with no expansion slot.

There are yes but very few and i have a problem with them too. but there are no ios devices with expandable storage. $300 extra for a 64gb internal vs a $30-50 64gb card, you can have your icrap

You gotta remember though. Android Jellybean did away with support for micro SD card expansion. Its highly unlikely that you will see it anytime time soon in a new Android update too as Google is trying to build up their cloud service. So on the topic of SD card expansion, neither side wins. Both Android 4.3 Jellybean and iOS7 lack official support for the feature.

Jellybean didnt do away with micro sd, it enhanced the security and made it multiuser capable. The only reason we dont have sd support is kuz something we have is incompatable with the updates, bit they actually have worked to upgrade sd support in jellybean we just got unlucky

Ohh, I see. I thought that it was taken out of source. I mean why else would they keep making nexus devices without the feature. I know some companies will add the feature in and rewrite the source for it to work (galaxy s4) while others won't (HTC one, Moto X, etc). It cost more money to add the feature which is why you'll notice how most devices shipping with 4.2+ don't have the support for it but will offer 50gb of google drive space
