SummaryDefinite choice if you are iOS user who needs all of what Apple offersGood for those looking for cloud storage for back-up files, photos and videos – compatible with both Android and iOS platforms*

Apple One: Recommendation

Apple One is only worthy if and only if you are an iOS user (iPhone or iPad) who make use at least these 3 services: music, movie and games. Or if you plan to share the services with your friends or family members who are also iOS users. My recommendation is to get the Family plan and split it with 5 others (in total 6 persons), so each pays $3.325 / month.

If you are an Android user, Apple One is not so worthy to get, especially since you can fully make use of Apple Music only. Apple doesn’t have Apple TV+ app for Android, though you can watch it via web browser but the experience won’t be that great. And Apple Arcade is compatible only for iOS.

Google One: Recommendation

Google One is cheap! But Google One is only worthy if you are at least storing your photos and videos on the cloud via Google Photos (available on both Android and iOS). Or if you are a heavy Google products users: Google docs, keep and other bunch of Google products and require saving into the cloud for easy access. My recommendation is to go with the 100GB plan first to see if you can make use of all the storage spaces.
