  • Tyler C

    What makes my Android device so much better than the competition? How about that lovely kickstand on my Thunderbolt that accompanies my morning breakfast while I read the latest Android and tech news with Google Currents.

  • Keyan X

    My Android is better than other OS phones I've tried because it's easier to screw up and fix, which can be very fun-strating :D

  • Clint Pedersen

    I love that I can run custom ROMs without anyone throwing a fit!

  • Steven Caravella

    I love the fact I can take Movies and TV shows and put them on my android and share them with others (unless they own an apple). I also Love that they come with HDMI ports!!! Keep up with good work making me hate Apple!!

  • Anthony Fox

    I use my galaxy nexus to tether its 4G LTE to my Ubuntu running laptop so repo sync doesn't take hours.

  • Nathan Salapat

    Angry birds is free on Android, Need I say more. :)

  • http://strifejester.wordpress.com Justin Ellenbecker

    Out of the box nav. Replaced my garmin and canceled my OnStar.

  • Richard

    Great T-shirt.
    I was talking to a co-worker and said he loves his iPhone, and was leaving Apple.
    He is not a fan by any means, but I said I love the openness of Android, I love that I am not as limited as an iPhone.

  • http://www.paulbasehore.com Paul

    My Android devices are better than other devices because they are so customizable. I can make it look and feel like anything I want, change the colors, change the launcher style, change the icon, anything. It's designed to be open, and that makes it better.

  • http://www.theandroidsite.com Ben Marvin

    Porn apps. Not that I actually use any, but it's nice to know the option is there.

  • Audienceofone

    Um 3D, that just says it all!!!!!

  • David

    I have an SGS2 and 2 friends with iphones and we always argue about whats better, of course I always win the battles, but this shirt will make me win the WAR

  • Bradley

    One of the reasons I love my Android device is for those times when I can show an Apple fanboy all the stuff my android device can do that his iOS device can't.

  • NCX

    My Android is better not because of the hardware but because of the awesome community that gives us custom roms, customization options, great apps from incredible developers like the UCCW app and CM9/AOKP. With Android we don't have to worry about our carrier restricting the software we use, we can always update with a custom rom of the latest version of Android thanks to groups like AOKP. The list goes on.

  • Johnny Sarcasm

    My Droid 2 has a slide out keyboard. Lets see your iFoney do that. :-P

  • https://plus.google.com/u/0/?tab=wX#105009165741919841248/posts BarneyDroid

    Removable battery, Expandable memory, Bigger screens.... what's not better about my Bionic!

  • Kevin

    I'll take any hardware with larger than a 3.5" screen. I don't care how clear that tiny screen it, it just doesn't cut it any more.

  • Andrew L.

    Gotta love the customization that Android offers!

  • Alex

    Google Wallet, because it's from the future!

  • Bob

    I love that I can do whatever the hell I want with my phone and don't have a corporate overlord locking my Nexus down.

  • Orrett Douglas-Prawl

    The customization is ridiculous. Need new icons? Change it... Need a new theme? Change that too...Need a whole new ROM? You bet android has got that. Possibilities are limitless with a little bit of customization.

  • Bionic Beast

    Android is king and will always remain king as long as I can customize it to function and look how I please.

  • polo79

    I love to be able to change every aspect of my rooted 3vo.

  • Jeff

    IPS+ on my transformer prime for reading textbooks next to windows :)

  • mastermind26

    After seeing the evo, I fell in love with android (was not so enamored with the G1).

    The customization, the feel and look of it all.

    It feels like home. :)

  • Joshu

    Widgets! Can't live without 'em.

  • Sam

    My Asus transformer is quite good because I can flash custom roms, tinker with the kernel and have the freedom to do whatever I want with it.

  • skid

    Android is better than apple cause... i can think for myself and do not need to be told what i can and can not do with MY device. oh yea.. it's also nice to have the option to add more memory via the micro HCSD, oh and 4g, oh i almost forgot about the largeer screen.. oh and hdmi port, usb port, do you see where i am going with this....

  • Mujtaba

    Open-source FTW!

  • http://about.me/seanprunka Sean Prunka

    My Android has no competition. I'm a fanboy through and through. I've had an extreme distaste for Apples ever since the first iPod (long before Android) back when I was a Creative fan. I suppose some could convice me that a Windows Phone might be competition, but I haven't heard the argument made yet.

  • Sean

    Because I can use my Android devices the way I want to, not the way someone else wants me to.

  • Coy L

    Open source and lots of options for roms make Android the Best!!

  • bobAbooey

    External storage and a removable battery.

  • edgar amaya

    custom roms and LTE

  • Vanick

    i love how easy it is to personalize android with rooting and different roms!
    my phone is unique to me and only me

  • Alex

    I love that a beautiful android experience is not confined to 3.5 inch screen

  • mikeymop

    The OS is customizable and easier to use.

  • John

    Being able to Beam what I'm looking at to my Fiancee so she doesn't have to find it herself on her phone.

  • orkillakilla

    I love the customization. I love that I can run a custom ROM and custom kernel that gives a 10x better user experience than the carriers and OEM's can give us. I love that I can get as many free ringtones and wallpapers as I want. I love the almost endless amount of free apps, and just as many awesome decently priced apps on the Play Market!

    But what I love most of all? It's made by Google!

  • Matt

    Open source. Plain and simple. I have full control over my Razr due to roms and customization. And I really don't trust Verizon.

  • Andrew

    Being able to customize to how I like (change pretty much whatever I want) and they integration with Google products!

  • Courtney

    I love my android because I don't have put all my media on it through itunes. Stupid IOS and no side loading.

  • Adam

    The navigation is the part that separates me from other types of phones. It's hands down a solid feature for Android phones.

  • http://www.Noodle.mx/?utm_source=androidpolice.com&utm_medium=Blog_comment&utm_campaign=Comments Daniel J. Lewis

    On my Android smartphone, I can:

    • use my email program of choice (Gmail),
    • use my keyboard of choice (Swype),
    • use my SMS program of choice (GoChat),
    • get free apps from Amazon.com and GetJar,
    • share from almost any application to almost any application,
    • synchronize my multimedia however I want,
    • connect to iTunes to get my podcasts and music,
    • root my device to install cooler ROMs or unlock special features (like wireless tethering),
    • not have to remember passwords because LastPass works so well on Android,
    • and, oh yeah, I can make phone calls.

  • Phil

    i can customize how ever i want make look and feel cool with out being tied to one look. We android users have a great developer team to help us with our messups.

  • Nathaniel Graham

    What makes Android better than the rest of the competition is the openness of the OS. If I pay $500 for a phone I want to be able to do what I want. With iOS you can't unless you jailbreak, and that's a cat and mouse game.

  • Ronald

    Love the freedom and community that comes with Android that you don't get with others.

  • Max

    Android is open source!!! XD

  • Travis Faulkner

    Being able to access all of my phone, recordings, pictures, video, without iTunes!

  • Kaz

    I love my NFC payments on the GNEX. My phone is usually a lot more accessible than my wallet, so it makes things very convenient for me.

  • matthew

    Ease of use with functionality and depth. You control it, not vice versa...

  • Kris Linville

    4" AMOLED Display, Multi-tasking, Custom ROMs, Integrated Google.

  • Seraph

    Even cutting out custom ROMS, even running 100% stock there's so much more customization. Widgets, alternative launchers, all that. Plus, having an alternative to EVERY stock app is a godsend.

  • Bedwa

    When you've got a Tablet that doubles as your phone, who needs anything else? Plus when you put it to your head to make a call, the looks are priceless.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 (p6800)
    My Tab makes calls Yo!

  • Samir

    Cuz Android can do anything.

  • http://Website exso

    True multi tasking

  • Svinkall

    The thing i love about my android is the freedom doesnt like the launcher? change it, doesnt like the sms app? change it! Its my phone not htc's or Samsung's or whatever. Its mine and it looks lite i want it =)

  • Ramon

    A beautiful 4.6" display that blows away the 3.5" fruit screen.

  • Daniel

    My Galaxy S2 has a removable battery, bigger brighter screen, weighs a ton less. iBrick, no thank you.

  • Gabriel Féron

    Simply because... CyanogenMod!

  • Harold

    Beats Audio in any music player with appropriate files flashed plus Sure sound-isolating earphones makes a better media player than anything the gang at One Infinite Loop put out.

  • Derek Renfro

    I love my android because it allows me to control everything in my life from one device. if i need to do something on my computer i just log in to it from my phone and do it. If i want to read a book i just load it onto my phone. If i want to buy something i just pull it up on my phone and buy it. I couldn't live my life with out my android.

  • Joe D

    I love my Android because its able to let me stay in contact with friends and family in an instant by being able to set up my phone the way I want.

    Also whenever anything goes wrong, it is so easy to fix by my self or the great help of our awesome android community....

  • SDL

    Would be nice to own one of these. Makes it so there's no need to respond to android haters.

    • SDL

      What the...?
      It didn't add my full comment. Anyway, I love my Android device and android devices in general due to the freedom. That's pretty much it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/barbie.doll.keri Keri

    I like my android device simply because I can customize it to my liking. Right now I am running GrapeGum Gummy Nex and I love that it's all purple. It's my favorite color. :P You can't do that with an iPhone or Blackberry :D

  • Doug Klimah

    The best is switching between ROMs.

  • Radek

    It's so much better than other systems because of possibility to really "own" your phone and do with it anything you like... And of course, who would like to write his own apps in objective-c or c# rather than in such a cup of coffee as java is? :)

  • Johnny Vu

    I'm a big fan of Android. Android does everything i need. Apple suck, it's useless piece of device and it's not even for T-mobile! Apple is even too expensive that does less than Android. I am a proud owner of many androids device. I need to win this T-shirt to represent my loyalty to Android.

  • http://www.computerandyou.net/ Abhishek Prakash

    Free Angry Birds Game

    Free Extra Space in Dropbox and Box

    Lots of special offers

    And I dont have to spend as much as on an Apple product

  • Eric

    You can simply put it into one work OPTIONS!!

    I can do anything I want with my Android, from custom ROM's, app's that control every little aspect of your hard/software, and the list goes on and on

  • smurf

    I own apple stock so I love it when the fanboys buy one apple device after another. Personally, I don't have one thing from apple.

  • Ruth Chiu

    I love my Swype keyboard. I wouldn't be able to use a touchscreen smartphone without it. Thank you Swype! I also love that your able to use your voice and install other third party apps for the keyboard and clock/weather utilities.

  • Roger Allen

    I love the Android OS and Google because it doesn't treat their customers like criminals with DRM and only put iOS only on Apple products.

  • Chris L

    I have no restrictions and can easily do or play anything on my over clocked transformer prime!

  • http://gplus.to/KraigWebb GeekYoshi

    I have to say the (in most cases) simple ability to gain root and do almost anything I want with my device.

  • josh fokis

    loved the finger print scanner on my phone.

  • Android Guy

    When I root my Android, I feel validated as a man. When I jailbreak an iPhone, I feel dirty inside.

    Hence, I'd go with an Android all the way, except if its been rooted by many people. Don't like the ones that give out too easily.

  • Jaime P

    Options options options :-)

  • ncobs

    I love that I can play console quality games, while simultaneously tethering my 4G to my Google TV box to watch Netflix!

  • Scott Suehle (@8bitdad)

    Android is built on an opensource platform. Game Over.

  • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com Cody Toombs

    Android is better because there's no limits to what can be done with it.

  • Joseph

    Because I am able to actually see the screen unlike some fruit phones. That is why my GNex Android eats apples.

  • John

    I love not having iTunes on my computer. And the kickstand on my thunderbolt is a fav of mine.

  • Sunghwa Woo

    Android is like the Rebels in the Star Wars, and the Apples are like the Clones. As most of the Android users feel, there's freedom with Android. Like R2D2, Android is capable of doing tremendous things and I like the fact that it is backed by Google. Yes the Android will the apples.

  • Konstantin

    the android is used by samsung, htc and and ans ... i can choose my favorite design and still have a very good system!

  • Freak4Dell

    I love that I can customize the way it looks to my preferences, rather than a corporation dictating what my phone can and cannot look like.

  • Karthik

    My android device is vanilla, allowing for as much customization as i please

  • Pete

    This makes my android better than iOS:
    Display size 4.65in vs 3.5in
    Display resolution 720x1280 vs 640x960
    Front camera 1.3-megapixels vs VGA
    RAM 1GB vs 512MB
    Flash support vs none
    and last but not least CUSTOMIZATION.
    My phone, my android and I customize it my way. (Launchers, ROMs, widgets, etc.)
    Verdict: ANDROID

  • Chad

    My Android device allows me to become adept at swapping batteries.

  • LeeMan

    My device is the best cause well, to say the least, It's an android. Fully customizable, Smart, and Fast...Loving it..lol

  • Christina

    I love android. It's open, so I can control what I do with my phone. It has flash support and there's so much variety that anyone can find a phone that fits their style.

  • Marshall

    I love that Android based phones are super easy to use for the end users and developers alike. Unlike some other phones out there.

  • http://thekonietzkystrain.tumblr.com/ NeuroMan42

    The best thing about Android is not be locked into a wall-garden and being TOLD what I am allowed to like, use, read, or listen to by Big Brother.

  • DcMasta

    Since it's inception, Android had allowed the user to customize your phone the way you like it. Don't like the way your OS runs? Put a new ROM, how about the splash screen? Oh you can change that too! The fact is with the name iPhone, it sure seems like apples phone, not my phone. Viva la Google!

  • Tony Marr

    The fact that two of my friends who have the IPhone recently had ota updates, but because of their poor signal they hopped on my free wireless tether to download the update, apples can do that? Sent with love from my signal sharing, Apple updating, blazing fast E4GT running ICS 4.0.4

  • Jason M

    My Android device is better than the competition almost entirely due to the Google services that integrate so well with it. It has access to services that iOS, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry do not offer, and for those services available on any or all of those competing platforms the Android version is almost always more capable.

  • Lennyg

    Siri sucks. Can't even tell me when to turn in order to reach my destination.

  • Mook

    Open source, customizable, and expandable memory.

  • leonardtj

    I love that i can check my email, calendar, voice-mail, current news, facebook status, and twitter all with out launching a single app right from my homescreen. Can the mactards do that? Nope

  • LayZee

    The only customizing you are able to do on an iOS device is changing the wallpaper and ringtone -- seriously?!

  • Erik

    My Android is a universal multi-tasker. It can do more than what my old Blackberry and IPhone used do. And because the Android OS is NOT proprietary any one device, I have my fair choices of which device I want next whenever my upgrade comes up.

  • Tyler

    I love the autosync feature of DropBox.

  • William

    The customization possibilities are endless.

  • Victor Sanchez

    CyanogenMod that's it!

  • Zachariah

    My phone is better than the others because it's MINE. I've customized it MY way with themes and ROMs and Mods..... Plus, something that iPhone just hasn't managed to copy yet, I can pay for my dinner at McDonald's using my phone's NFC chip ;-)

  • Elizabeth

    I love that I can change all my icons and the look if my phone.

  • ZACHERY FOWLER

    I love android cause its open sourced.. If a company fails to release an update, there is always a way to be happy with the device you have..and with roms like cyanogen mod 7, you've got the t-mobile theme chooser so you not stuck with the same icons-notification bar etc...lol for some reason i love the touch-wizzed theme :) I bet no other mobile os had more developers backing it up!!!!

  • JGrove

    I would love to have one of these shirts...it so fits me. While everyone around me has drank the kool-aid and bought an iPhone/iPad, I am happy with the openness that Android allows. Apple locks down everything and Android lets me use my devices how I want to use them.

  • http://androidpolice gregory johnson

    what I like about my android is the way it multitasks

  • Les Brown

    I love my Android because I can customize it how ever I like and change it when ever I want unlike the stuipd idevices

  • Omar Zayyat

    Android is better than pretty much every OS device because you can drop an android device and not worry about it breaking into a million pieces.

  • Branden Loock

    My RAZR is awesome because I can customize to my liking. Its also super fast!

  • Scott

    No matter how much I break my android phone messing with ROMs and such, I can fix it myself. Also, I can take out the battery

  • Chris B

    I get the freedom to choose what I want on android, be it the keyboard, launcher or something else.

  • Jeff E.

    Well, my phone is cool because it's running Android and that's all I could care about. :P

  • Smiley Smith

    I like Android because you can customize everything.

  • Ovi Roatis

    NFC rocks. I love Wallet.

  • Mike

    Being able to customize my phone to my liking is the biggest reason I love Android. Rooting has also made it possible to have apps like Droidwall, so I can prevent any app I want from accessing the web.

  • cole baiker

    Customizable OS, great user schemes, and oh yeah, its not apple!!!

  • Bryan

    I like to customize my Android device with different launchers and browsers. It makes it look unique. You cant do that with iOS. You have your apps in your face all the time. I like my widgets.

  • Brett Books

    Big ass screen...none of this 3.5" screen only crap.

  • Josh

    Flexibility and fun. Google is way more fun than Apple, and it translates into their mobile OS. Easter eggs like the "zombie Android" from Gingerbread are awesome. Plus, the ability to refer to your OS as a dessert has a fun factor that can't be overestimated.

  • https://plus.google.com/u/0/114485308445108937435/posts Bill Stull

    Android has an attitude about itself. SWAG

  • Artur

    IT PRINTS MONEY....also have the ability to have a completely empty homescreen...good luck trying that on an i*hone

  • http://www.imnuts.org Mark

    It helps keep my phone healthy :)

  • http://www.androidpolice.com Brandon Houtz

    I love my Galaxy Nexus with ICS. Ice Cream Sandwiches rock! I also enjoy using the NFC enabled GOOGLE WALLET>!

  • TR

    I want to win a t-shirt!

  • ajs2677

    I like to play games on an emulator on my Epic 4G Touch, use a PS3 Sixaxis controller to control them and run it via HDMI into my big screen television. What a phone!

  • http://www.androidpolice.com Brandon Houtz

    I enjoy my ASUS Transformer Prime as it has GPS in a WIFI tablet which works! Also the Asus cloud storage is nice.

  • Niko

    I've always been big into all open source things and I'm a long-time Linux user, so I can hardly think about using anything else than OS-based phone if there's one available. Currently I'm rocking out with my Desire HD and CM7.2 RC1. ;-)

  • Mark S

    i love that with the freedom to root and install custom ROMs has made my long obsolete HTC Liberty still run like a champ.

  • http://www.onecityoneblog.com brandon

    My Android is better than iOS phones I've tried because i can actually browse the file system.

  • Tyler jones

    The screen on my newly purchased galaxy note is better than any other screen and an iphone fits nicely within the viewing area

  • lortay78

    I love that I an sideload anything I want on my device. It encourages me to try and make my own applications rather than feeling tethered to some huge company who feels like they should decide what software I can run on my phone.

  • http://na Saksham Manchanda

    Love my android because I love to flash new ROMs every weekend

  • Alex Ross

    Love how my phone can get 4 now and the iPhone is still using 3g. And my phone doesn't look like yours. All iPhones look the same.

  • Josh Peckham

    What don't I love about Android --- I was able to purchase a $99 WebOS tablet and turn it into a rockin Android Tablet which is now running ICS...It's Frickin Awesome!! Oh and it helps that as an Android junkie I can rub it in my wife's face how much better it is as an she's an Iphone user

  • Canrith

    Just switched my iphonie for an ANDROID so what do you think

  • http://gpoints.wordpress.com Gerald Points

    After owning/using -
    -> a Newton - breaking it - $500 to fix
    -> an IPhone - breaking it - $100 to fix
    -> an Android phone - breaking it - $20 to fix...I expect to break it.
    So, I better find something affordable to fix. Throwing more money at something doesn't necessarily make it better (...especially since I mostly throw my devices).

  • Sean D

    I love being able to run emulators on my phone, definitely one of the best things about Android.

  • David

    Android is my better choice for screen size. I have been looking into other options lately, but I really like the way Android is headed and there no longer a ton of apps that are luring me to leave. I just wish EA would step up and offer all their games on all devices and get some onto android that are Apple only.

  • http://www.impulsivestudios.com/ Justin Myers

    My Android is better than iOS because:

    I have LTE.
    I have a screen larger than 3.5".
    I have Beats Audio.
    I have more free applications.
    I don't need iTunes to make ringtones.
    I can stream from the cloud with Google Play Music.
    I have a 2MP FFC.
    CyanogenMod. Nuf said.
    I have a removable battery.
    NFC is the future.
    extmicro/mirco USB is better than Apple's port.
    HDMI
    Flash is native.
    This shirt is AWESOME! ;)

  • mcstraun69

    I am rocking my HTC Desire HD proudly it was once the king of all android phones and I'm displaying my loyalty. The android OS is terrific. In today's world we wants options not do-it-for-you closed os like you-know-who.

  • magiman7

    Android, where devs can kang and claim credit for others work even better than Apple ;-)

  • Graham S

    My Galaxy Nexus is better than the rest because it is pure Android by default, and it is so simple to unlock the bootloader and root the phone. Life is good with the GNex :-)

  • Gene

    I love the fact that android OS is open source which allows anyone to customize it.

  • xorob0

    i can make exactly what i want and need
