I feel like theres a lot of controversy about this topic, so I decided to get some data about it my making a project on replit. I wrote this app originally for a Ronaldo vs Messi voting site and I used most of the code for this project.
Too bad, now I’m gonna explain why I think Android is better. Apple have good phones in general and features, but Android’s have a more sturdy model at least my phone won’t break if I drop it on carpet. They also have a much more wide range of customization as @AMDryzen5600X stated, better battery performance as well. Iphone batteries go bad after awhile and it’s not like you can just get a new battery, but with androids you can :).
One of the big things for developers is probably the app store too, Apple has been taken to court multiple times because they take an insane cut of the earnings developers would make from apps (I recall 30% but that could be wrong). I don’t know what Android takes, but I’m pretty sure it’s less.
