Sims mobile vs freeplay

LOL I'm sorry I just don't understand why they had to make 2 different mobile games. Smh what do you think? Which do you like better?

    I prefer Freeplay. I have tried Sims Mobile but deleted it as it just wasn't as fun as I thought it was going to be.

    Originally I liked Freeplay better but I'd say they're pretty even now. There are different aspects of each that I really like.

    I'm still figuring out TSM, but I've played TSF for years (stopped 2-3 years ago) and what I've never liked about it are the quests' limited time to complete them and long hours some actions last. In comparison to TSM it's better if you like playing with different households, building different homes and playing with 8 sims (I think), because in TSM there are only 4 Sims available and one household.

    The Sims Mobile: it has TS4 content, which I love; although the prices and money you earn is not balanced and some people say prices go up as you progress in the game (like in TSF, but at a much rapid pace). IMO the interaction's menu between Sims is not clear enough, because if you're a first-time player it can mislead you, like it's happened to lots of players, me included. Sims can't be deleted, stories can't be changed, but different events can take place at the same time, which allows players to do multiple things at once.

    The Sims Freeplay: it has grown over the years and has original content (build and buy mode). There are many lots to place your Sims and it's a great idea, you create their relationships with your own Sims, there aren't NPCs. There are no stories to complete, you just choose is it's a friendship, romantic relationship or enmity. You can have pets, visit you friends households (from FB) and establish relationships with them.

    (There are more characteristics that I may not have covered because I don't know them yet or I forgot)

    I haven't played TSF in a long time, I left it when there were apartments available, but I think TSM is a combination of TSF and TS4, I suppose it will change over time as TSF did, and expand its word. They are different but have similarities. Personally I prefer TSM now, I don't know if in a few months I will hate it, but that's my view on both games. :)

    I've tried TSF and TSM and I prefer TSM. It's easier to dip in and out of for a start. Where as TSF seems overly complicated and more work. I don't have an issue with work lol! But sometimes I can't dedicate the time to complete tasks and I feel that TSF maybe a game I need to dedicate the time too

    Thank you for this, I was also wondering what the differences are now my mind is clear, I have tried TSF and TSM and I have to say I prefer TSM as like a few others said you can hop in and out of the game.

    This is really off topic - but instead of 2 sims games I wish they would make a sims forum app! That would be so cool.

    Honestly I prefer Freeplay. Sims mobile is so boring I tried it for a few hours and immediately deleted. The energy and the taping multiple times to do something gets really old. I also hate how it re-uses TS4 stuff, which they are re-selling at outrageously expensive prices.
