I am a phone app designer & over time I have used both Android and iPhone phones. Unfortunately it is fact that many device owners own iPhones just to gloat.
But there are a few important features that renders iOS devices an intelligent buy. The iPad protects it's user's privacy well. No 3rd party apps can access the phone's call history, emails & different features, and this should be considered really important. In regards to the Android ecosystem it is normal that third party apps are able to read the phone's calling info and messaging data. If you have downloaded some game and it might read and transmit the phone's messages or more personal data such as banking credentials.
And also think about the smart phone users who really don't look at the access permission requests whilst installing and downloading new Apps . Every single one of the apps and games on the app marketplace have been thoroughly vetted via Apple manually as well as by the automated system prior to displaying it on the App Store. It has been proven there are no chances of spy games & apps being in Apple's Appstore. However the Android handsets, an unknown app producer can upload any kind of game or app.
Usability wise, Apple devices excels, hold an iPhone XR in one hand & take a Samsung example in the other hand. If you call a phone number & look at the result. The response delay is unbettered in an Apple device. Typing experience is delightful using iPads & iPhones. Specially if you are using the Safari 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 But the cheap Android phones are not upgradable and will be outdated in next 1 year.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 easy falls.
