It's really a personal opinion. One is android and one is windows phone if I'm not mistaken, so that can be a big factor. What are some apps you think you would want to have. Are they available on both? What kind of features do you want to have in your OS? Take those questions in to consideration for both.

Android is a OS that many developers like to use and consumers like to modify, if you are new to the smartphone ecosystem then you might want to have a look at iOS (iPhone). Android is a complex OS and is harder to use then the simplified iOS. Windows Phone 8 is becoming popular every day, it has many features like live tiles and the ability to customise your start screen beyond any other OS. However both platforms come with pros and cons, for example iOS is not able to be customisable the only thing you can do is change the apps around the screen and the lock screen and wallpaper. Android has problems with its software because the software is not optimised for the hardware like iOS or Windows Phone 8. Windows Phone 8 has the least app selection out of all three but its growing every day and many popular apps will shortly be ported for the platform. But like ryebread761 said its all up to your personal opinion.

Like most things this depends on you and which one would suit your needs. I stuck with Windows Phone for the past 3 or so years as its what I prefered. As stated in the previous post, there is a few apps that you might want to use that Windows Phone can't offer like an official YouTube app or perhaps Instagram. That aside though don't let that persuade you decision as Windows Phone 8 is still a good OS and Phone.
