Why You Should Buy An Iphone Instead Of An Android Phone?

When Apple introduced the iPhone in 2007, it changed the entire mobile phone industry forever. As an answer to the iPhone, Google Inc. created and open platform operating system that has been powering some of the best smartphones on the market today. Why choose and iPhone over an Android? It is a matter of what you want and need from your cell phone. Below are several reasons to consider an iPhone.

If you don't consider yourself tech savvy, the iPhone is for you. Android phones offer many options that the iPhone does not, but many of those options you won't even use because you can't figure out how to use it. The iPhone set up and interface is very easy to use, and you won't have to download anti-virus software on your iPhone; you will on your Android.

The Siri personal assistant on the iPhone 4S lets you use your voice to send text messges, dictate emails, messages, schedule your meetings, place phone calls and more. Just ask Siri to do things just by talking the way you normally talk. Siri does understand what you say, she knows what you mean, and even talks back. The Siri appl is so easy to use and does so much, you’ll keep finding more and more ways to use it, even ask her what she thinks is the best phone or what she thinks about Android.

The iPhone 4S has an excellent battery life when compared to its competitors out there and with people using their smartphones more and more, battery life is critical. According to Apple's specs , there is approx 7 hours of talking time and a amazing 6 hours of usage when used on 3G. So if you're not like me and use your phone just calls and emails , the iPhone can last you well over a day but why buy an iPhone if you not going to us it, I love mine.

The iPhone Retina Display is amazing and needs to be seen up close and personal to appreciate see how good it really is. Pixels are almost invisible and the video looks fantastic, do you need that Sony camera anymore!!. Some Android phones on the market come close to that hi-resolution, but they're still not as crystal clear as the iPhones fantastic Retina Display. Apple isn't the first to put a super-high-resolution screen in a smartphone. Google's Nexus One android phone, for example, features a nice OLED screen with a resolution of 800-by-480 pixels, but its subpixel arrangement has some issues when compared to the iPhone display.

Apples App store has now over 350,000 apps for iPhone/iPod/iPad. Unfortunately the Android Market has only around 150,000 apps. That 200,000 difference in the amount and varity of apps available is a reason alone to go for the iPhone.

Apple lets all iPhone users enjoy ever iOS update for free every couple of months and now with IOS5 release these updates can be done wirelessly, with a new major release once a year. Android updates come at the discretion of the manufacturer and cannot be done wirelessly, so you could be waiting months for the next version of Android, life is too short to way.

The iPhone 3Gs, 4 and 4S are now all cheaper to buy then compered to the high end android phones. The 3Gs is now available for free from AT&T with a two-year contract. That's quite a steal considering you'll get to enjoy most of the same features as the iPhone 4.

The FaceTime function, video conferencing is a so easy and amazing with the iPhone 4/4S. So with the latest update to Skype on the iPhone, you can make FaceTime video calls for free over any 3G network. Most Android phones have front-facing cameras by now, but not all apps work with each model. Qik comes close, but it's still not as good as the iPhones FaceTime.

The iPhone 4/4S is all glass and metal packed into a thin profile. It feels solid in your hand, like a truly-high end device. We've used way too many Android phones that are covered in flimsy plastic and feel cheap.

I bet you are now, ordering your brand new iPhone online now, you wont regret it!

I believe, as with all things, it depends on what you are looking for and your personal preference. For me, this is an iPhone, but that is because I just like it. I am sure there are cleverer phones, but I am also sure there is a lot about using an iPhone I don't know yet!

Having owned the iPhone 4 and the Samsung Nexus (android), I can honestly say that I am more partial to the Samsung. Apps are cheap, Google apps work properly in Android, flash works properly, and they are more modifiable. There are some things that I do like about the Apple however, it does still have the "cool" factor, even though there are millions of people that have it now, so it has lost a lot of it's exclusivity. It is also very simple and standardized and it is a more controlled environment for the average user. I like both...but I think my next phone will be an Android. ;)
