Samsung…iPhone? What to choose? I have the answer for you! My favorite phone out of the two is the Android. I think iPhones right now are a bit overrated and people praise them for things that Samsung has already accomplished and have done better. Samsung beats the iPhone in so many ways like customization, assistants, and different versions.

With Samsung, there are many different versions of a newly released phone. For example, Samsung’s very popular phone the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has 11 different variants that mainly focuses on size and software and it can fit your standards and needs of the phone. Now the iPhone 8 only has a few variants and most of them are just colors! No specific changes to the software at all. There is a size variant though but that’s really just it. 

Customization is clearly the main reason why Samsung tops iPhone in the smartphone department. You can add widgets, change your wallpaper so much easier, and add shortcuts to the home screen instead of going into the actual apps. You can even customize your keyboard layout. Now on iPhones, there’s not too much to do with an iPhone. If you get an iPhone, you get what you get. To even do the slightest tweaking on an iPhone you need to have an app called Jailbreak which their customization options aren’t even that great.

Siri (iPhone) vs Google Assistant (Samsung). The winner goes to Google Assistant by a landslide. First of all, the Google Assistant does a better job of getting instant and simple answers. With Siri, it does a decent job at getting answers too, but they are pretty complicated answers compared to the Google Assistant. Also Google Assistant acts more than an assistant if you know what I mean. You can tell Google Assistant to sing you a song, or read a poem, or play a game with you, or more! But with Siri, All she does is give you an excuse not to do any of those things (try it yourself if you don’t believe me). Overall, Google Assistant is better than Siri.

These are my reasons why Samsung phones are better than an iPhone. There are many other reasons but to keep this article short I only listed a few. However, I am not an Apple hater. I use Apple’s iPads and think their Macbooks are better than Android computers. Hopefully, you will make the switch to Samsung or stay with Samsung.

    I hope you know that these phones were recalled over a year ago by now, and your precious iPhone isn’t much better.Just to have you know that making the rounds on Twitter recently has been a video of a smoking iPhone 7 Plus. The video, shows the device burning to the point that the case is melting away and smoke is erupting from the side of the device.

    I think apple with iphones are better. On an Iphone you can customize your keyboard change your background with a few clicks and they have way more apps

    Samsung phones can do this aswell, while there is an app required to change the way the keyboard looks it is still optional and functional. Sure, it is faster on iPhone but still, we can even create our own keyboards to our liking. Also, there is various backgrounds to choose from on samsung/android phones. There is no master race of phones both have equal power.

    I think that apple is better because they have brand new updates and you could get them on every phone so you don’t have to get a new one like how it is with android. The layout is also a lot better, its more easy than android

    I think Samsung is better because we don’t have to get all these updates like 2 times a month. We don’t have to deal with problems with our apple IDs and always having your phone needing to be charged. Samsung’s also don’t have all those useless apps that take up ALOT of storage. What Aaron Coon said on a Samsung we can do all of that! Also our phones don’t explode those were just the new ones and every person who had on of those got there money back ( Every person makes mistakes)! That’s why I think Samsungs are better than Iphones.

    Iphones are way better because they don’t explode first of all. Also the iPhone X is super cool and it has more screen space than the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Apple has a lot of cool updates and apps you can get. I know that the iPhones are really expensive but they are worth it for the price. The Samsung phones are also pretty confusing , unlike the iPhone, which is not confusing what so ever. With the iPhone you can choose the color of the phone (for instance, rose gold, black, silver,etc.) That is why I think the iPhone is much better than a Samsung.

    What about when the samsungs battie blows up, apple phones don’t do that. What if your phone is in your pocket/hand and the battie blows up, that would not be good.

    I think androids are more open software which is good and bad in some cases. versus Apple is more closed which also good and bad in some case

    Also with Apple if your parents don’t want you to get a phone yet you can get an iPod.
