    Let me say this before Alli comes along. Readers don't turn this thread into an Android vs. Apple\iOS thread. Just saying.

    Android simply has more options to place icons and the likes ANYWHERE on screens, themes and the likes. Simply put.

    Addition of widgets like a weather/clock widget on your home screen. The ability to change the icons if you want, use different launchers than stock such as Nova or GO Launcher.

    Trust me there is a ton of customization options on Android which dwarf the capabilities of iOS but take it from someone who started with iOS then went to Android and came back most of the customization gets boring after awhile.

    Basically an Android is more tweak friendly, unlike an iPhone where you are still confined to certain limitations...an icon vs the ability to see real time data on the screen is an example.

    Only way is for you to try android and experience this for yourself. I own both iPhone 5 and nexus 4 which both have +'s and -'s.

    One thing I I really like is I don't need to rely on iTunes to add items to my phone.

    The biggest difference is that in general terms, the android OS allows for the type of personalization (themes, notifications, widgets and icon placement tweaks) that is available to iOS only after jailbreaking the device.

    In addition to all of these, Android also allows you to assign different default apps

    All of the above. For me, while all that stuff was neat for a moment, in the end I want a great performing phone to do everyday things.

    Android based phones have more customization options in native form...that is what they are referring to. Once an iPhone is jailbroken, the customization argument because moot.

    I've been using a Galaxy Nexus as my daily driver since July. I just got an iPhone 5 this weekend and am back.

    To me customization is really the one difference between Android and the iOS If you pick up stock Android Nexus and an iPhone IMHO it's the same thing; rows of apps on the screen. Android does have a secondary UI layer in the "app drawer" but that's moot for me, as it seems redundant to have icons in 2 spots. But for customization on the iPhone the only thing you really get to customize is the layout of your app icons, sounds, and accounts. On Android you can customize just about down the single pixel if you really want. You can load up a new keyboard instead of the stock keyboard. You can load new launchers with different transition effects. Move the search bar on the screen; add a new one. Literally just about every "thing" can be customized or changed. The benefit of this customization is what should be debated. Not what is "better" because to me, neither is better; they both are what they are. You can decide which one you like better, no one should hold it against you.

    I believe iPhone is a great performing phone too



    Customization comes second of importance in my opinion

    I agree

    Itunes sucks and the whole dynamics of putting files into itunes and then tranferring them to phone and the way syncing work is such a pain in the butt.
