I made the leap from Android to iPhone on late last month and have to say that I'm not at all impressed by any particular feature.  I don't know that there is anything the iPhone does better than Andoird except for having excellent battery life and limiting background processes (to save battery life).  As bcruze said, they just work, which is often times more important than having the latest gadgetry.  My most missed feature thus far is Waze in Android Auto.

Android - because iPhone Apple world is a closed shop.

Android is a more open world.

iPhones are very secure however

Android with a phone that supports Lineage OS that's in your budget.  You can buy the phone outright or a used phone and get service through a MNVO without a contract.
