I am a device application developer and over time I have used both iPhone and Android phones. Unfortunately it is true that lots of phone owners have the iPhone to just show off.
Indeed there happen to be some great features which renders iDevices an excellent buy. The iPhone is secure. No third party apps are able to gain access to the device's calling logs, messages & different features, which really should be considered vitally pertinent. In regards to Android devices its really common that installed apps in fact do read the phone's calling data and sms info. Think about if you have installed and downloaded some app and it could record and send your messages and other personal data like bank info.
And also think about the equipment consumers that foolishly don't look at any access permission requests when downloading & installing games and apps . All of the apps and games in the Appstore are comprehensively vetted by Apple manually and by the automated machine process prior to having it on Apple's App Store. So there are no chances of spy apps & games appearing in the Appstore. Now think of the Android handsets, an unknown app producer is able to upload whatever type of their game.
Regarding performance, the iPad excels, have an iPhone XS in one hand and have a Galaxy device in the remaining hand. Now dial a number and look at the legacy. The reaction delay is great in the Apple device. Typing interface is market leading when using iDevices. Especially if one is making use of the browser. Apple always provides new OS updates to all devices. But the cheap Android phones are not upgradable and will be outdated in next 1 year. That's another major issue with most of the Android phones.
Overall hardware is far better in iOS with compare to Android phones. Whether it is body, battery back up, battery life etc. Calling is also very good in iPhones. Have you ever seen that someone is talking over iPhone and voice is coming out? But on most of the Android phones voice comes out why calling and can be listened easily by nearby people. iPhones are strong enough. You may have noticed that you do not see someone's iPhone with cracked screen. But in case of Android like Micromax you may seen a lot of people with broken screens. iPhone screen glass is strong enough & does not break on soft falls.
