Telegram for privacy wise. Whatsapp for usability. I think tons of features added in Telegram gives negative impact to its usability.
Telegram is also cloud dependant. It sometimes has to reload its app regularly in order to receive messages.
Nothing privacy in Telegram, new chats are NOT end to end encrypted unless you turn it on.
And its from VKontakte.. Those people are not really privacy minded.

If you do not want to use Whatsapp better go to Signal.

Whatsapp was made by Mr. Facebook, Telegram was made by russian guy. Choose Signal (or even better your own messenger).

Well, both WhatsApp and Telegram have their own unique features and it depends on personal preferences which one is better for you. However, there are some points that make Telegram stand out from WhatsApp. Here are some reasons why Telegram can be a better option:

1. Security: Telegram offers end-to-end encryption for voice calls and secret chats, which ensures that your conversations are private and secure.

2. Customization: Unlike WhatsApp, you can customize almost every aspect of the Telegram app, including themes, fonts, and even the app icon.

3. File sharing: Telegram allows you to share large files up to 2 GB, whereas WhatsApp limits file sharing to 100 MB.

4. Cloud storage: Telegram offers cloud storage for your messages and media, which means you can access your messages from any device anytime.

5. Bot support: Telegram allows you to interact with bots, which can be used for various purposes, such as news updates, weather forecasts, and language translations.

So, in conclusion, while both WhatsApp and Telegram have their merits, Telegram offers some additional features that make it a better option for some users.
