What happens when you’re playing your favorite app or game in the bathroom, and you drop your phone in the toilet? Would you stay with the phone brand you have now? Or would you be looking to switch to the other option?
The iPhone or an Android. These two options may seem like the hardest. They may have a lot in common, but there’s significant differences that lean to what phone may be better.
To help you decide between these two, here are the advantages and drawbacks to each of them. It’s important to know what you want in a phone so you make the right decision.

iPhone Pros:
Camera quality
Hardware and software controlled by Apple
Emojis
Highly rated app store
FaceTime

iPhone Cons:
No expandable storage
Weak glass screen
Customization is limited

 

Android Pros:
Face screen unlock
A wide variety of phones to choose from
Expandable storage
Easy to customize

Android Cons:
No video chatting (Like FaceTime)
Apps for the phone are very limited
Emojis
Updates for phone rarely happen

If you’re still not convinced on the phone that you think you’d prefer, these students explained how they feel about them.
Senior Freddy Rosario:
Q: Do you have an Android or an iPhone?
A: Android (Galaxy 8).
Q: Why do you have that phone and not the other?
A: Because it’s more durable than iPhones and I’m just more use to it. Also, it has more features.
Q: What’s your two favorite features about your phone?
A: My phone unlocks with my face and you can download music without the need of Spotify or having to pay for it.
Q: What two features about your phone do you dislike?
A: It has a button called Bixby, which is like a Siri. Also, the cases for the phone are ugly.

 

Q: Would you or wouldn’t you switch to the other phone? Why or why not?
A: I would switch if it was an iPhone 8 that was all red, or just super dope.
Senior Sinan Felic:
Q: Do you have an Android or an iPhone?
A: Android (Galaxy S7).
Q: Why do you have that phone and not the other?
A: I liked the design of it.
Q: What’s your two favorite features about your phone?
A: The fingerprint unlock feature and the split screen.
Q: What two features about your phone do you dislike?
A: It has no FaceTime, and is kind of slow.
Q: Would you or wouldn’t you switch to the other phone? Why or why not?

Junior Sebastian Garay:
Q: Do you have an Android or an iPhone?
A: iPhone 6s.
Q: Why do you have that phone and not the other?

Q: What’s your two favorite features about your phone?
A: I like the touch ID to unlock my phone. The emojis are better and it has a way better camera.

A: The soft thin glass. It breaks easily when you drop it and that’s it.

Q: Would you or wouldn’t you switch to the other phone? Why or why not?
