Which one is more user-friendly? - Android or iPhone?
When we buy a smartphone, what we want most is it must be user-friendly. Mean it is easy to understand and easy to use. If you have ever use an iPhone before, you will find out that you can simply pick up any iPhone and quickly and easily understand how to use it without needed to figure out what to do. All you need to do is to tap on the app icons desired. That is why when you purchase an iPhone, you will not find any user manual inside the box.
Most of the Android devices come with several button for different functions. After you have unlock the screen (This may vary on different types of Android device), you will need to face with many possible different type of front screen that may need you to scratch your head what to do next.

Battery for Android devices is removable and replaceable. The battery replacements can be easily found in the market. You can always have another standby fully charged battery for your emergency use.
iPhone do not have a replaceable battery, and you cannot even see or know where is the battery located. If anything happen to your iPhone battery, all you can do is to send it back to Apple and hopefully you will get back a good one. And you will have to suffer a period of phone-less days.

The memory of smartphones can be differentiate into two categories.
1) Internal memory
This will be a big drawback for android smartphone as it has a limited internal memory, why do I say so? Because by default when you buy your android smartphone, the internal memory is already limiter due to the default apps in it. What to say if you have a lot more of photos and media content that you put into it later. And the more apps you have in your phone, you probably make it slow and become less "smart".
Whereas iPhone has a good internal memory sizes that you can choose and is range from 8Gb, 16Gb and up to 32Gb.
2. External memory
Android smartphone has an advantage that you can use the external memory like SD card to add an extra memory to your smartphone. But since SD card is removable, many reports shows that it is easy to get corrupted and that will causes you lose your valuable data, photos or your favorite song or movie clip.
iPhone has no external expandable memory. But there are no complaints so far as the internal memory by itself is huge and good enough. Moreover, the size of the memory is what you have chosen. And I have not heard anyone have lost their photos or data due to corruption of data.
