Android or Apple?

What do you like about Apple & Android? Also, which do you prefer?

 

My Answer:

Of both, i do prefer Apple. I like Apple because its products are a little more high quality than that of an android phone, especially the build quality of the Galaxy series. iOS is also very good looking in my opinion and has many apps that look and work seamlessly which makes it feel nicer and more connected. On Android, I feel like apps os OS services are designed however the developer wants, and are not applied to a specific guideline and so the phone has no overall ‘modern’ theme or design. I also like the App Store on iOS better and little things like iMessage and FaceTime are a huge bonus. I do, still like Android, especially for size in phones. They have more detailed settings which allow me to set even more specific options, and it is more available to customization. Although you would think an Android phone is better for me considering I like technology, but I still rule in favor of the really nice designs Apple puts out.

HTC or Samsung?

Hey! I was just wondering, which phone you feel is a better option, an HTC One or a Galaxy S4? Why? Thanks!

-Sreekar

Official Answer:

While both both phones are really good, I personally would go for the S4. It has a slightly larger screen, and Samsung’s TouchWiz UI overlay, which I like. It also has a faster 1.9Ghz quad core processor. It also has a large 13MP camera, versus the HTC’s sad 4MP. Although it has many advantages, I still don’t like the S4’s plastic construction. It just seems too cheap. Also another advantage the HTC One has is its dual stereo speakers, so that might be good if you use them often. Still, I prefer the S4.
