Smartphone is a phone which uses operating system just like computer does. It has many capabilities like a computer.
Android is one of the operating systems for these smartphones just like windows for computer.
iPhone is the brand name for smartphones manufactured by Apple Inc.

If you are planning for a nice phone that can do a lot of things, buy an android phone.

The people above are right. But android and IOS aren't the only operating systems. There are windows phones as well.

But I would still suggest an android if you are looking. Just read an article about the new Google phone, it's great.http://twistity.com/google-nexus-4-unbeatable-package/

A smartphone is a mobile phone that offers more advanced computing ability and connectivity than a contemporary basic 'feature phone'. Androids and iPhones are types of smartphones. Some other types of smartphones include Blackberry smartphones and Windows smartphones. There are many differences among all of them, but I won't list them all. The most important difference is that different types of smartphones run different mobile operating systems; e.g. Android smartphones run the Android OS, while iPhones run the iOS.
