Summary of the last argument at HappyPancake team about iPhone vs Google Nexus with @pjvds.
This discussion, unlike last discussions about Facebook Flux or JSON assertions, was over in 10 minutes.
- iPhone is a product with premium design and polish. It is more expensive.
- Google Nexus is a good product with similar hardware specs but less polish. It is less expensive.
- Recent iOS updates make iPhones feel outdated slightly faster than recent Android changes.
- App ecosystems of iPhone and Android are comparable. iPhone has a few more exclusive apps and apps are generally more expensive and polished. Android has more apps with lower quality on the average.
Pieter: values iPhone design and likes polished, premium feeling. He is willing to pay for that.
Rinat: prefers Google Nexus, since it feels great, has similar hardware specs and is less expensive.
Tomas: prefers iPhone, since it just works and is well designed. He dislikes the Safari for its treatment of HTML standards.
