FaceTime is by far the best way to video call somebody owning an iDevice. It offers a far greater quality and stability than competitors like Skype, especially in low-speed networks, FaceTime remains clear while Skype gets all pixels and the sound gets delayed. Given a medium network strength and a FAST internet connection, FaceTime offers the much clearer image and sound experience. I have now been using and testing FaceTime for more than 1-and-a-half years for several hours daily (my girlfriend lives in Australia whilst I am from Germany), thus am honest calling FaceTime clearly superior to Skype.

Pros
  • Audio Quality
  • Video Image Quality
  • Stability
  • Simplicity
  • Echo suppression
  • System integration and notification, if called
  • Adaption to network strength and speed
  • Says "paused" when minimised, image doesn't just freeze like Skype
Cons
  • Calls between more than 2 people are not implemented
  • Should show more than the last 100 calls in the log
