I was an android phone user for years. I switched to an iphone 5 when it came out and I can say that as of now, I won't swap back any time soon. The iphone just seems to be more solid and stable. It is also more user friendly, IMO. Quite simply, it works...and without the glitchy nature of the android phones I've owned. The Apple restrictions can be an aggravation, but for how I use my phone, it hasn't been a big deal.
