🙂 Here is what I found for you:

 

. Android Phones

Pros:
Excellent software/application support
Thousands of Apps (free) to download online
Wide variety of phones (to suit your budget) – Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorola
Frequent OS updates (for improving performance)
Android phones can also function as a router to share Internet.
Multitasking

Cons:
Some phones become sluggish (slow) after installing many apps.
Most of the Android phones are touch screen phones without keyboard (there are a few exceptions)
Most of the features need internet (which is not major issue now)
If you are buying an expensive android phone you might not like the fact that there are many phones available at really cheap prices which operate on Android.

Verdict: If you love to experiment with new apps and games, and chat with your family and friends on whatsapp and other messengers, this phone is for you.

2.  Apple iPhone 4/4S

Pros:
Amazing software support
Very good battery life
Touch screen sensitivity is mind blowing
Camera is great
Visuals are very nice and eye catching
Very snappy processing
Does not become sluggish even after installing apps
It gives you a good feeling (If you don’t have an iPhone, you dont have an iPhone) – Exclusivity, for brand concious people

Cons:
Many of the good apps are paid (not free)
Micro simcard support only (Normal SIM Card dosent fit into it)
No Flash support in the web browser
No file transfer over Bluetooth or USB Mass Storage mode
No hardware shutter key for the camera
No FM radio
No keyboard, No stereo speakers
No microSD card slot
Too dependent on iTunes for loading multimedia content
Poor loudspeaker performance
Very expensive
Hardware cannot be opened manually like other phones

Verdict: If you love visuals and experiencing new games and softwares in your free time and can shell out a lot of money then this phone is for you.
