Android.  Moto G7.  You can get nicely spec'ed midrange Android phones for much less than iPhones.  Back in the day, I used to root my phones - not so much reason to do that now.  I prefer the homescr

When my wife gets a new iPhone, I get her leftovers.......LOL! Currently using an iPhone X

Only had the iPhone 2G and 3G and then Android all the way until now. I'm not a fan of Apple's policies and pricing. I'm a techie, I like to customize and do stuff on my own, so prefer Android.

I was an Android user for a long time, over 10 years. I switched to "vanilla" Android phones when the Nexus 6p was released and used google-made phones up until the Pixel 3. I love Android for its customization options, and Google's camera software which I believe to be superior to Apple's.

Today, I'm using an iPhone because of work, I couldn't find an android-friendly app that supported PGP email encryption that worked as well as Canary for iOS.

The new iOS that's releasing actually has a few adoptions from Android, and the same can be said for the next flavor of Android borrowing some things from iOS. The differences between the two are slowly shrinking, which is good for us as consumers since we lose out on less going from one platform to the other. That said, the prices for iPhones are wild and cost almost as much as their laptops somehow.

The debate comes down to software, not hardware IMO. Samsung and Apple make great smartphones - hardware. On software, iPhones work marginally better than any other devices and their apps are more bulletproof, Android phones offer more features (sooner than Apple). But the real debate IMO...

...we’re not Apple devotees, but we use iPhones only. No problem with Samsung (their phones are top notch) or other Android smartphone producers, but we don't trust Google and avoid them as much as possible - it's essentially impossible to avoid them entirely. No platform is perfect WRT privacy, but Apple doesn't do anywhere near the data-mining that Google/Alphabet does with Android. Apple uses and keeps only the information it needs to provide good service, Google hoovers up anything and everything they can get from users and will monetize your info in every way possible (and it's not all aggregated data as they claim). YMMV

That said, your son may have a very strong preference based on his circle of friends. Good luck.

I’ve had both, but I prefer iPhone now because it works well with my iPad.  Years ago I had the same debate with my teenage son.  He got a windows phone.  He showed me!

We're iPhone all the way.

When smart phones really started coming on strong, my wife and I both got Samsungs running Android. As soon as our contracts were up, we moved to iPhones and haven't looked back. We had way too many issues with app compatibility and performance on Android. Hasn't been an issue at all on the iPhones.

I bought an UMIDIGI android last fall and I really like it. As good as any Samsung at 1/4 the price. Battery life is amazing. I don't think I even charge it every week.

Being a Cyber Security Expert I used to only use Apple but now that I have retired I switched to Samsung. Why?

1. The cameras are the best you can get in a phone. When I travel unless I need a powerful telephoto 300-600mm all I take is my phone. They have been able to take pictures in the dark for 4-5 years without flash. My mate has the iPhone 11 and it does not even come close to the quality of my S9.

2. Battery life. I run two apps both using GPS when I play and if I start with 100% by the time I finish it will be 84-85%.

3. I used to love the way Apple apps were designed to be easy to use, now you have to have a degree to work them out. And I am a computer engineer.

The only thing that I did not like was the interface, however I found a thing called Simple Mode with basically makes the screen similar to a iPhone layout.

Here is a picture, anyone like to guess what it is. Note resolution has been greatly reduced - file size was 1.2MB now only 95KB.

Based on 1 and 3 I think you would like the vanilla Android experience aka not TouchWiz (Samsung's flavor of the launcher/OS). Google's launcher didn't allow me to do what I wanted it to do, so I switched to NovaLauncher Prime. I like as minimalistic as possible, and that's what I was able to achieve. On my iPhone, I can't really do that as much.

I google image searched that picture. It's some variety of milkweed flower?

 

edit: also, the way notifications are handled in Android are leaps and bounds above my experience with iOS

Android here.  I have no strong preference for either though.  Some would say that nowdays Android and iPhone are so similar that its really more what your brand preference is.  IMO, most who say that iPhone is better are really just going off of their brand bias and the outdated notion that everything Apple is the best.
