Well, the main difference is customization options. If you're okay with a company deciding everything about your phone, what apps you have, what the OS is, and so forth (and don't like thinking about changing it), drink the punch and go for an iPhone. If you like having options, even once you've bought your phone, go for an Android. For example, I tried out three different systems for it - the vanilla one, Aviate, and Google Now Launcher, before deciding that I love Google Now Launcher. If I change my mind, I can change it. You can also add widgets and customize your home screen so much more, along with everything on your phone. I like those options, thus I go for Android.
Furthermore, Apple only has iPhones. Android has so many other companies producing phones. I love my Samsung S4 as a phone, and don't feel any envy for iPhone owners. I can take out the battery. I can add a microSD to get almost unlimited storage. etc.
In short, Apple believes that they know what you want, and give it to you. If you want the same things that they think you want, it works out well - nothing to think or worry about. However, if you want more, or at least other things, Android gives you the ability to decide.
I would suggest Apple to people that aren't tech-savvy, though. Less ability to mess up your phone by accident. ; D
