Lets see what they offer and lacks
=> Apps ; Android Google’s Play store has over one million apps available, they offers more apps than Apple’s App Store simply because Android is an open source, its software is open for developers to generate apps. But Apple is still leading in terms of quality,most app developers and companies choose to publish the iOS version of their apps first in Apple’s Store before looking at Android Play’s Store.

Android is still behind in term of software, with multiple crashes and bugs in it.
