    As the title says which one would you pick. I can't decide on which one. I've owned an old iPhone. We are talking the iPhone 2 and I have a note 4 that needs to be replaced

    Age old question. Both solid devices. There's really only two glaring points to pull one way or the other IMHO (along with a lot of more subtle ones):

    Do you need or just really like Apple's integrated messaging, ease of sharing photos and videos via text, etc.? If yes, get iPhone.

    Do you like tinkering with everything? Do you not care about downloading a bunch of crap only to find it really sucks or is full of Chinese spyware - or know how to avoid the Chinese crapware? Get the Note.

    Forget it ... Apple IOS increasingly being ruined by clueless, millennial, snap chat generation retard "engineers", too young to remember Job's KISS principle.

    Facetime used to take one touch to switch from front to back camera ... with IOS 12.1 now takes two swipes and two touches ... total BS.

    Why upgrade ?

    My note4 is still running strong and does everything I want it to do. And you can replace it for 160 bucks on ebay.

    If you have a iPhone stick with that. If you have an Android stick with that. These days we are so connected through our phones that it is hard to switch platforms.
    BTW Android Note8 or 9 for the win.

    I went with the iPhone xs max. I like it. My note 4 was on its last leg. A small learning curve for me.

    Neither? I refuse to pay more than $500 for a smart phone. I had a IPhone 6 for 3 years and Apple pissed me off once they changed OS that started draining the old batteries and only attempted to fix it when caught. Spoke to a couple Android folks and went with the Pixel (Pixel2 already out) I got it from newegg for $400. A bit of a learning curve but I like it well enough. Maybe I will go Pixel 2 next year or maybe a Motorola. Buddies told me the Samsungs have a lot of bloatware. I like the idea of unlimited photo storage. Apple began charging me .99 a month.

    Keep up! The Pixel 3 was just introduced a couple of weeks ago.
