    Your Lifestyle will answer that question for you easily

    I have iPhone because i have a Mac and several other apple products so it makes sense just to have a iPhone and i never really got to grips with android phones so apple suites me fine don't get me wrong doesn't suite everyone we are all different

    For example i always go for a walk every day to get some shopping so when the Apple Watch was released i bought it so I when i am walking i can change my playlist over if I wanted to and get emails and text messages easy

    I also do a lot of cycling to so messages and playlist are always easy to get to when I am cycling the watch has been a big benefit to myself a lot of people would say no but of coarse we are all different and wouldn't require one at all.

    It's like the air pods when they were put on sale i bought them with in a heartbeat because when i am going cycling or shopping i can listen to my playlists which ever i am doing and when i am done i can recharge my airpods up in the box
    And when it times to use them again they are fully charge and i don't have to listen to the Bluetooth headphones saying
    Battery level low the airpods have changed the way I do things it makes my lifestyle more easier for me

    Their is a brief summary of my lifestyle your lifestyle might be completely different to what mine is

    I have found the apple products more easier to work with no major problems

    Honestly, when it boils down to it there is no correct answer. A lot of people prefer iPhone over Android and there are other people who are loyal to Android. I feel like there is a lot of hype around having an iPhone, especially if you have the latest device. When I was first in the market for a smartphone I went to my carrier store (T-Mobile) and I told them what I was looking for in a smartphone and they pointed me in the right direction. After a year or so with the device I was ready to upgrade, I stuck with Android because I knew how their OS worked. After a year of that and after finding out that the iPhone was on my carrier I decided to switch. Honestly, I will never go back. Apple seems to know what they're doing when it comes to their phones. They're extremely easy to use, have a great camera and the battery life is superb. One example I would like to give us through the camera. When you open the camera of any Samsung device you are greeted with so many different options to manipulate the image before you take it. There are many different cool features that the camera has but not many that you're going to use on a daily basis. How often will you really use all the "cool" features it has to offer? Very rarely. The iPhone on the other hand is very simple. There aren't many words to go with the options that you get which gives it a sleek look (don't worry, it's only a few icons you have to learn). You don't get to tamper with the image until after you take it. This makes the iPhone camera quick and easy to use, no fuss. Personally, I feel that this is where many different split. Some smartphone users prefer the complications and the plethora of features they get to choose from, others want to simplicity and ease. Don't get me wrong, I don't intend to down play the iPhone, it still boasts a lot of cool features, but it doesn't make it overcomplicated as Android does.
    I suggest you get an iPhone if you have any other Apple product such as an iPad or Mac. When you have all Apple, everything is so seamless. Multitasking is an ease an Apple continues to make their productivity even better. If you take a photo on your iPhone it automatically shows up in the photos app of your iPad and Mac, the same goes for iTunes and iMessage. Since Android tends to be strictly for phones, it doesn't allow the integrated flow. This is possible using Google apps on your Chromebook, Android phone or Tablet, but not as easy and effortlessly as Apple.
    I could go into much greater detail and example, but I feel as if that's a bit much. When it really boils down to it, Android is great for power users who enjoy real multitasking (two apps open at once on the screen), more complex features and a bit of confusion at time. iPhone can be thought of as sleek, sophisticated and easy to use. The choice is truly yours!

    That is a personnel decision. Depends on what you want and how you are going to use it.

    All that talk about Android being complicated is utter crap. I've used Android on Nexus and the native camera app is very simple and clean so your argument may apply into certain devices such as a Samsung or other non Nexus devices. There's plethora of camera apps on Android that one can choose from, you're not stuck with just one. I still get confused when people say Android is complicated. What's so complicated? Everything is so straight forward if you don't tamper with the OS and keep it stock. The issue is people don't understand the difference between stock Android and customized Android by various OEMs.
