I will say though, most of the stuff that's on Android by default can be achieved by jailbreaking an iPhone, so I really don't think Android is that much greater. The only thing you can't achieve on iOS is dualbooting multiple operating systems since iOS isn't open source and the kernel would never allow it. If I really wanted to, I could dualboot iOS and Android.Great minds discuss ideas.
Average minds discuss events.
Small minds discuss people.

I tried a Nexus and hated it with a passion. I gave my iPhone 4 to my daughter and ought the Nexus but after a couple of months I sold it for a massive loss ( I sold it just after Google reduced the price) and bought an iPhone 5
Android just didn't do anything without a lot of work and even then it just didn't work. I hated it, but if you want to do a lot of work for very little gain then Android might be for you.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

I'm on a Nexus 5 right now and love it. Of course, I still love my iPad too and (obviously) loovvveeddd the iPhone back when I had that.
iOS and Android are for different markets. Neither one is "better" since it all comes down to personal preference. What I liked about iDevices is that they just... worked. You could just take it out of the box and use it. You don't have to play around with the settings and stuff until you got it "just how you like it" because there wasn't much to change. Apple thinks everything out down to the smallest detail. Everything is sleek, user-friendly, and works well. I have my parents set up with iPads because it's easier for them to understand and use than a Nexus 7.
What I love about Android is the level of customization you get with it. I have mine rooted with the Xposed framework installed and I can get the phone EXACTLY how I like it without even having to install any custom roms or extravagant number of tweaks. Most of the rooted android tweaks are free (unlike jailbroken ones, which I definitely have nothing against) and they work WELL and simply. What I don't like about Android is how it's not as streamlined as iOS. For example, when I want to look at pictures, I have a Gallery app and a photos app. While they're both great apps and have different features, why can't google just combine them into one?
Just a little rant from someone who's seriously used both platforms and love them both equally.
