iOS is pretty boring, but so so optimised. iOS 7 is anything but boring though. Has a lot of character.

Possible the OP doesn't even care about apps, so you can't discount WP8 neither.

I still use a Samsung Galaxy S1. The "Grandaddy" of the Galaxy Series(IMO). I have rooted and ROM'd my phone. It currently runs a JellyBean ROM and is smooth like butter. No hang ups, no freezes.
My wife has an iPhone 3GS. She loves her phone.

Here'es where it gets interesting. She like the options I have on my phone with customization. For instance. I can download apps and skins to make my Android Phone screens and buttons on screen to look like its running iOS. Where as I like the simplicity of her phone(at times).

Another interesting point. My wife and I run alot of the same apps. BUT! Half of the apps we both run she had to pay for whereas I was able to get them for free. iOS has a lot of apps, but many you are needing to pay for. But a lot of those same apps are free on Android. This is not always the case, but its there.

Here's yet another point. If you choose a iPhone you will find that whether it be an iPhone 3, 3GS, 4, 4S, whatever, that they are ALL THE SAME. This means that if you put down your phone and pick up someone elses iPhone that you will be able to navigate it pretty flawlessly.
Android has so many different manufacturers and models that it varies from one brand, model, etc to another. If you had a Samsung Galaxy S3 and pick up a HTC whatever you would have a harder time navigating the different phone even though it may be on the same Android OS.

As stated before this is not a iPhone vs Android thread. The only thing I can recommend is this, find a few friends that have both Android and iPhones. Ask them if you can sit with their phones for a bit(when they are using them of course.) and try to get a feel of both sides.

I believe that a chance to "test drive" each side will help you to make a more educated decision.
(One of the Cell Service Providers should take this idea of "Test Driving" to the next level and actually put it into action. They can give you 2-3 Options to choose from and you get to try each option out for a week or so. Then once you have decided you pick what you want. Maybe charge a fair deposit for each phone during the test period. I would happily pay the deposit on each phone(as long as it was a fair one) to test out iPhone, Android, and Windows phones. And since most providers can now transfer data between different types of phones, this would be a very viable experience to provide to your customers.)
