Apple's innovation fell off the wagon but IMHO their iPad/iphone build quality is far superior to the competition

I prefer their iPad, mostly as I use it regularly for work and its better suited.

Phones however, that hasn't been my finding.  Beyond the fact apple havent innovated at all since the iPhone 3, the build quality on something like a HTC one m8 seems easily on par with anything from Apple.

Combined with the superior features, lack of the walled garden, superior camera (at least in the s5) and the ever marching increase of market share resulting in more/better apps (http://www.businessinsider.com.au/android-apple-market-share-australia-2014-9/), for me the choice is straight forward.

Still, its all a matter of opinion.

Once upon a time I would have agreed, but now the Android phones and upper end Tablets are on par in build quality.


The thing that causes people to perceive that Android devices are rubbish quality are the cheap arse Tablets and knock off phones that are available all over the place. But if you stick with the big brands, some of the internals are actually much better........

yeah...that's the thing. I sometimes have someone tell me they used android and it was rubbish...slow...jittery....then i find out it was on a $150 phone and then i show them mine and they change their mind.

A good thing about apple is that all their products are superior spec so you don't need to worry about buying a dud.

That's all the excuse I need to upgrade. Whatever 700 spectrum is, I need it.  :p
