You're comparing apples to oranges really. iPhone is a device. Android is an operating system.

It's comparing apples to green robots

iPhone means iOS, so it's not only device, but also OS.
reply
Only because it's a closed silo. If it were really your device then you could install whichever operating system you wanted.

Actually by jailbreaking it's possible to run Linux on some iPhone models. https://www.xda-developers.com/apple-iphone-7-ubuntu-linux-checkra1n-project-sandcastle/

Dont know @kristapsk iphone is a tangible thing but android no. ;)
Both run on Unix/Linux
reply
Unix and GNU/Linux.
GNU stands for "GNU's Not Unix!", so as the name implies, it's a different OS.
reply
Free software or closed silo?.

But, doesn’t that only really count if you are running F-Droid and no Google android stuff?

I'm not ready to sell my freedom for iphone. I'm from the era when phones looked different

Less privacy on android
reply
GrapheneOS has excellent privacy.

Less advertised privacy.

Never owned apple, never will.

When I'm on an iphone I feel like i'm in kindergarten.
  • Turn off Wifi!
Well ok but when I think it's needed I will turn it back on.
Iphone is for people who need a nanny.
reply
Unfortunately, none of those.
We are really lacking a free (as in freedom) OS for mobile devices. There are several different attempts, but none of them got traction.
The best you can do is to use some custom Android builds that get rid of Google.
reply
Yeah, GrapheneOS for example.

iPhone is FIAT tech

iPhone, overall is solid phone like it or not.
My favorite Android device is the Nvidia Shield Pro, still little better than the Apple TV.
reply
Because never used iPhone before. Android is okay for me. No need for another device.

Android.
It's Linux, I can run any app that I want in it, I can run a terminal, SSH, whatever. I can even run another OS, like GrapheneOS on it.
With iPhone I get zero control.
reply
I go for Android every time and in every lifetime
reply
Android, of course.
reply
I’m gonna have to go iOS. But with where apple is headed, I could see me jumping ship within the next few years.
reply
Locked in a long time ago. Gonna be painfull to switch to Graphyne, etc.
reply
And i miss Cyanogen ....really interesseting alternative at its time
reply
I've gotten used to Calyx. Some things need improving though. Maps and notifications mostly.
Apple make a great product, but they're still exploiting and controlling all your info. For me no more apple. Waiting for the graphine on apple for my old devices
reply
I have a GrapheneOS phone, but I really don't like it very much. I miss my iPhone
reply
iOS is simple and clean
reply
The user experience just isn't even close on Android and even worse on graphene. I'm not willing to put up with the ios privacy theater though.

I switched in october 23 on grapheneOS from my iPhone. I absolutly agree that android is not even close to ios. I was a bit of a shock for me xD But, where shadows are there is also light. The installation from opensource apps was really refreshing for me. After 4 months I understand a bit more why privacy is a path to walk through and not a apprupt change. With my independence through grapheneOS, I no longer plan to switch back to iOS.

android is just a robot apple is juicy
