I prefer bitcoin to litecoin because bitcoin is the most famous cryto currency in the World today, it determines the value of all other coins which litecoin is not exempted from, it leads other follows, lite coin can crash today and other coins continue to exist but if bitcoin crash today almost all coins will cease to exist.
Most local exchangers that exchange Crypto currencies to local currency trade more on bitcoin as compared to litcoin, this makes bitcoin easier to work with. The online stores that accept Crypto currency online most of them only accept bitcoin.
If you check most of the wallets both online and offline ones they are capable of storing bitcoin but not all are compatible to store litecoin. Bitcoin faucets are much more available compare to litecoin
