    There is nothing iphone can do that android can't. Plus you pay a premium many times over to do that on an iphone its almost a crime.

    Plus android has its own plus too like multitasking and customizable UI and its open source and it has more choices.

    Because my dad chose my deal and I've had for it years now.

    And just saying, I never paid out the ass for it anyway.

    From eBay I bought an iPhone 5 (bought at the time around £170). Slapped a tamper glass and a flimsy Chinese see through case on it.

    Its lasted me a good 4 years.

    You see, iPhones are good looking, simple and are a very known brand.
    Furthermore the iPhone camera (at the time) I felt was better than any android phone can muster. Maybe its different now (i think s8 camera is better than iPhone X?) but one things for sure, iPhone's camera is never neglected, is always improved and is usually top notch.
    Also, I feel like for the price, cheap iPhones are still very worth it. Yeah, Apple do purposely slow down their phones-but goddamn your not getting anywhere with an £170 equivalent Android phone. Its literally a piece of ****-my iPhone 5 is still much faster than my dads Sony z3-I feel like Android phones, over time just get slow, clunky and overall bad. Like using a phone at 3 frame per second

    I feel like the only time Androids are good is if they are expensive, and the latest ones. I feel like Apple iPhone's last much much longer, in terms of usability-like damn I had an iPhone 4s for sooo friggin long. I feel like with an Andriod, since it gets so slow and **** so quickly, i'l have to change it quick

    EDIT: None of my phones have ever been contract, always pay as you go
