The original iPhone released in 2007 was hailed as revolutionary in a world where BlackBerry, Palm, and Microsoft Windows Phone reigned king. Google was working on a competitor to these platforms with the Android team they purchased in 2005. After the iPhone unveiling, Google changed course and the T-Mobile HTC Dream was launched in 2008. How did the two compare and which one was better? iPhone vs Android.

    First iPhone itself was pretty bad phone with really cool looking touch technology. Because it was such a novelty it started an evolution and sadly lost it soon after. One bright moment was 3G, later 5 and maybe 6 but nothing groundbreaking or competitive ever since.

    Subsequently apple has added a keyboard to their extra large ipod touch. I dislike lock in. GPS on phone was a deciding feature for me back then. I had and ocean and a droid but voice to text is pretty good now. I was a little sad the web based apps didn't take off. Blackberry did good business for a while there. I really like the clicky screen concept because you could mouse around and we don't have that feature today though multi touch covers some of the function. I had similar functionality on a pocket pc long beforehand but they came late to phones. iphone touch keyboard was pretty good. I liked early swipe keyboards. Also I had picked up palms stylus strokes earlier and that was pretty fast. I'm also a fan of memory expansion. I wish webos had made it.

    Very good ,and well researched, we came a long way and people that comes from that era learned to appreciate both platforms. I am an android user,but admit apple's strengths, due to personal preferences android fits better in my world. I get really annoyed when an newborn apple user who comes from blackberry straight to apple want to tell me android is inferior, because they do not know what they are talking about I used android and Apple in the beginning and up to today after every apple update I still pick an iPhone and try out the new features for myself and appreciate the advantages of the new software and in my mind ai know it's not gonna be long then android has it and visa versa and that is good thing. I believe the competition between the two platforms brought us where we are today

    Smartphone's were horrible until about 2012, both Apple and Android. Saying otherwise is just "Nostalgia Goggles". The original iphone was cool, but it was slow and touch was iffy at best. Anyone that thinks any of these phones were good, were obviously not using the phones for anything but playing games, because having to use the things for work was a nightmare. It's the reason so many people stuck with Blackberry so long, they were much better until Apple and Google worked all their kinks out. Steve Balmer was right when he said business people needed a keyboard at that time, and that's probably the last time he was right about anything.

    The Only thing that made iPhone what it is today is the earth adoption of the App Store. There’s no way the first gen iPhone is worth 500$ Balmer was in the right for his reaction. People judge his reaction with respect to the entire iPhone line up and not the first gen. The first gen iPhone sucks. It’s only after iPhone 4s it became a great phone

    Both operating systems are pretty stable nowadays, but I do remember the old days where iOS wasn't very customizable and basic, but with Android I was constantly seeing a barely stable device ([App] is not responding. [App] has stopped unexpectedly. Etc. Android 4 and before was just...) Around that period, the most stable "Android" device I've ever owned was the first generation Kindle Fire. I almost never saw an unresponsive message or crash message. For what it was, it was very well-behaved, very well debugged. Nowadays, they're both great. Although, I tend to stick with Apple, mainly in the used market, not just for the OS, but because they have a pretty seamless ecosystem.

    First androids had resistive plastic screens, which can’t support multitouch. While on first iPhone there was glass capacitive screen, that was so much better to use. Difference between windows mobile, Symbian, android, other systems like Sony Ericsson and iOS was gigantic. Plus glass and aluminum on iPhone vs cheap plastic on other devices. First android phone I can remember to be somewhat on par with iPhone was HTC Desire, in 2010. And I know, cause I’ve been working at electronics store focused on phones at the time.

      Because they make money on the OS, they don't don't do so much on the hardware end. Also they sell your private information to advertisers. Reason why you don't pay so much upfront with many Google Android devices is the hardware manufacturers have to rely on getting that revenue/profit from software. Where as Apple actually makes profit from their hardware, that's why their hardware is typically the most apple tax because their Apple. The rest of the revenue comes from their ecosystem of App store, their own software and services.

Depending on how much and how long you use Apple devices you get your money's worth out of them over the years.

    When Vivo, mi, oppo entered the market they came up with the craze of cameras on a budget that everyone can afford and the scene changed again when Oneplus was changing the game with more storage and ram thing and that was the time when Samsung was making their flagship phones and the worst case that didn't have to happen,...Nokia was off the game as they weren't able to cope with the ongrowing tech. But sadly no one remembers the 40 mp windows mobile that was not that publicly famous.

    I had a Samsung flip phone from 2009 through 2013 (my parents Verizon plan and choice of phones). When I moved out I got my own service and my first smart phone was a Samsung Galaxy Centura which I really liked at the time. I got a Samsung S3 a couple years later. Two years after that I tried out an LG Escape 3 which I got as a promotional deal for $20 from my new service provider. Had it just over two years and was by far the worst smart phone I ever owned. In 2019 I bought a refurbished Moto G6 Play for $70. Awesome phone for such a great deal. I loved the Motorola so much that when I had to upgrade, I opted for the G8 Power which I actually just started using less than two days ago and I am absolutely loving it. Super awesome bang for your buck phone. I got it for $140.

    I have to say onething about android and ios animations. While iOS animations feels smoother than on android they feel slow to me. Like why can't we tweak the animation speed on the iOS. Android lets you choose from 0.5 x to 10x which you will never use. Android animations are plenty smooth and way faster than iOS. Thats why if a midrange snapdragon phone didn't sttuter it feels faster than iphone 12 pro max as well to me. Every thing just opens up quickly like keyborad navigation, app switching , opening notifications and lot others. And on android flagships, they genuinely feels faster than any other iPhone and with new high refresh rate technology android is awesome to use.

    Call me crazy but I find this 1st gen iPhone the best looking smart phone ever. That shape, the small form factor and chrome edge trims look so timeless: modern and classic at the same time. Not to say steam punk, more like a sleek 50's/60's sport car, with chrome trims, but with modern technology. The iPhone 5 and 2016 SE come close. I really dislike the modern huge 'testosteroned' bezel-less smartphones. I hope Apple keeps the classic iPhone style somewhat alive with successors of the SE 2020.
