  1. Some really strong debate points. I wish more people thought about the child labor and unfair labor practices that go into making phones and other merchandise. It was interesting that both of you made the point to put down the other side. I guess both companies are committing unfair labor practices!

  2. It’s quite simple. IOS or the Iphone Operating System, is the best software in terms of optimization. However, it is boring and way too simple, even though I personally switched from Android to an IPhone. Android is like America, a land of opportunity. Android is open sourced so you as the user can do pretty much anything you want with it, has more software features, and etc. Optimization may not be as well as Iphones depending on what brand you get(this excludes Google’s Pixel Phones as they come straight from the creators of Android) but companies like Samsung and LG sometimes struggle. It is purely opinion based.

  3. Asim Ali won because he brought up good points and he gave good counterarguments.Three reasons that were substantial was that the SD for Androids don’t give you a lot of storage, Androids aren’t fire resistant and they blow up, lastly Androids also copy Apple (apple watch).

  4. Overall good debate but i feel that the affirmative side won. Because he explains and exposes what apple does which basically they are stealing ideas from android.And that he had good comebacks and was prepared for what ever the negative was stating or his opinion.Lastly And he had good pictures and evidence to prove that he won this debate.

  5. I feel like Afan won because he had goo counterarguments and towards the end of the debate he even proved Asim wrong by saying that the iPhone 7 was red because they are supporting AIDS and not because it was fire resistant.

  6. I love the negative side to this debate as well it shows knowledge and he explained the ios 10 app and earbuds . I found it intresting that the images went so good with the picture its like right and ready but i also do think he went on a bit of a tangent explaining the earpods . Loved watching this debate 🙂

  7. Booth the sides were pretty good, but I think that the negative side won because they bought up all the points they used in their audio video and explained his facts and points briefly in the class video. The positive side could have done much better because their audio video was very good and strong. But in the class their points were weak and not that strong.

  8. I think the affirmative won because he was able to give good facts that most people could actually relate to in our today’s society and he was also able to give good reasons on why we would rather get androids instead of iphones.

  9. Both sides of the debate had really strong points with a lot of evidence and very great graphics and pictures. The video flowed very well, illustrating the different points in an organized way. Both of the students that were debating did a great job in their research, as so did the narrator. The narrator asked very interesting questions that could be answered and argued by both sides of the debate.
    The only aspect of the video that made it a confusing was the music at the beginning. The music was slightly louder than the narrator’s voice, so it was hard to hear what he was saying. If the music was a little lower, his voice could be heard better.
    Great job!

  10. Overall, I like Asim’s video more but in terms of debate, I believe Afan won the debate. Asim’s facts in his video were quite impacting and definitely made me think twice about where my phone comes from. Both Asim and Afan mentioned child labor which now makes me think that both Samsung and Apple are responsible for child labor.

  11. Good job two both of these gentlemen they did such a phenomenal job for representing there side and had great facts along with the awesome images, but I have to go with Asim winning this debate his arguments were much more concise and accurate also in the last question he did great job backing up his side I was going to go with Afan, but Asim’s answer in the last question changed my mind.

  12. I honestly think both argument were really well put and strong but I think the negative side won the debate because he had really great counter arguments to what the affirmative side stated. Although, I do think that the arguments should have touched upon the whole child labor thing a bit more in the actual debate. Overall really strong debate!

  14. I thought both of them did a great job in the overall debate. I love who the pictures in their videos connected about what they were talking about, but in the actual debate, I believe the negative side, Asim Ali, won this one. He had great data and facts withing his arguments and he had reposes to everything fast.

  15. This was really hard for me to choose who won because both did an amazing job explaining their sides but the affirmative side had a little bit more facts. I wish they would have talked about child labor more,, this was a really good debate! Good job.
