There's no comparison between Apple phones and their Google knock-offs when it comes to performance. People clearly buy the latter for emotional reasons rather than rational ones. In order to feel different, or special, perhaps. Nothing wrong with that. What matters is what makes people happy.
It sounds like you're on the Google bandwagon. Good for you. The important thing is that what you do makes you happy. Don't try to tell people that there is something wrong with wanting the technically superior phone, though. Or mislead them by trying to compare the performance of your brand new phone with an iPhone from early 2013.
