To the people who play this game a s***load and know a lot about different phones:

Is the iOS version far less laggy and glitchy than the Android version, or is the Galaxy Grand Prime just a super potato phone?

My buddy came into town last weekend, and I set him up with a new PoGO account. He has an iPhone, and I spun some stops for him and caught some pokes while he drove. The responsiveness of the PoGO app was soooo much snappier than on my Galaxy Grand Prime, and his battery lasted about 3x longer than mine.

tldr: Is the Android version of PoGO that much worse than the iOS version, or is my phone garbage? Maybe both?

I have an iPhone 5s and I sometimes use my boyfriend's Huawei to play. In my experience, my iPhone is much better, but I'm not sure if that's the phone or the system. The game takes 2 to 3 minutes to load on his phone, and I'm unable to attack gyms 3 out of 4 times because the app crashes when I click on a gym. The only problem with my iPhone is that the game crashes out of nowhere when I play for a long time or evolve +-30 Pokémon. But I'm always able to restart in 20 or less seconds and it never crashes multiple times in a row.

In my experience, the game will run better on older iPhones than older Android phones, but it's damn glitchy and crashy on either.

This latest update is really unstable on my iPhone, though. Crashes during lucky egg evolves, locks up when doing several potions one after another, crashing when looking at gyms, etc.

My Grand Prime isn't really "old." I just got it last year.

Let's put it this way: The Galaxy S5 was released more than 3 years ago and has a 2.5ghz processor with 2gb RAM. The Grand Prime has a 1.2ghz processor and 1gb RAM.

So the answer to my initial question is "both."

The Android version of PoGO is glitchier than the iOS version, and my phone is a potato.

Lol the name "Galaxy Grand Prime" is such a scam. Makes it sound like it's the top of the line super premium but really it was just a budget phone even at launch.

You'll never get a good experience on a phone with 1GB of RAM. Niantic recommends at least 2GB, which is what my Nexus 5X has and it runs pretty well for me. I used to play on a phone with 1GB and it was terrible with long start-up times and lots of freezes.
