As an avid Android user, I had never thought of switching, but was curious why others were jumping ship at higher rates. Was it the larger screens that debuted with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus,
so what do you think !
Iphone is just simpler and more practical to use. I myself am an Iphone user and I would always recommend to use Iphone over Samsung. I had a few Samsung phones and they would just start to work very bad after a year or two. So if you ask me the answer is - Iphone.
For me, Samsung is more easy to understand. I've been using it for long time and every time I bought new phone I always choose Samsung. In Samsung you can easily understand the apps and buttons that was already installed in the phone.
I'm more a fan of Android devices, mainly because those devices are cheaper, and everyone close to me was using Android devices too. It was only later that some people switched to iOS devices, and they told me that they love how smoothly it can interact with other iOS devices.
But it's one feature I don't need, I need Windows, so I won't buy a Mac. Also, I'm never a fan of learning new things, despite my relatively young age. I know how Android works now, I'll be fine with just that.
For a newbie who wants to understand about how to use a smartphone.
Samsung is easier to start because it uses Android and I think this is also easier for newbies if they are considering using between Android or iOS.
I would also like to add that it would've been better to place this topic under "Buying tips and advice". By placing it under iPhone, you will most likely get responses from iPhone users, without getting a proper response from Android users, who you pretty much asked the question to as well.
