    I have an android and an iPhone , I love my iPhone .

    keyboard wise , Android is the same as iPhone . nothing better .
    Battery - both at the same level.
    Camera - android is better .

    I found iPhone more stable by far .

    I've had both, and I prefer Android, mainly because of it's customizability

    Galaxy is a Google product, 4,65"

    5 MP Continuous auto-focus
    1.3 MP Front
    LED Flash
    Zero shutter lag
    HD Video recording at 1080p

    I do believe it has Swype, a keyboard layout for, well, swiping, as well as many other customizable keyboards in the play store

    You can search through keyboards if you'd like

    Like akhalighi mentioned however, Iphones are much more stable, Androids, as far as I've had contact with, tend to restart or overheat or bug a bit more frequently than Iphones, however, it works nicely. As for screens breaking, I suggest the Otterbox

    For IPhones or Android

    Hope some of this helps

    Those devices ar enot available in my country.
    I'm really looking for a design Android phone, big screen. Isn't there a HTC or Samsung with really big screen, with name like One Note or something?
