We have always had iphones. I still have a 5, my daughter has a 6. I am going to upgrade her (she only has 16g memory) and I'm going to take her 6. Now she is saying she wants a android phone, probably Samsung. She likes her friend's Galaxy 6. I have no problem going that route, but I am not too familiar with it and hate to invest in something ultimately she might not like. Having said that, she will probably be more flexible than I would learning a new OS. I am used to ios and am not a super power user anyway so the Apple products are fine. She goes through all kinds of apps and may prefer the Android. Looking at Androids, I was kind of surprised they are just as expensive as iphones. My younger son has had a couple of android based cheap starter phones. I wasn't to thrilled with them because they are totally different, but he seems to have adapted to them pretty well. I have never had any wifi issues on the ios that I can recall.
