Blue Mosque and Suleymaniye: A Comparison

Most travelers don’t take the time to visit the Suleymaniye so I wanted to get your opinion. After visiting both I think Suleymaniye > Blue Mosque. I understand that the proximity to the Hagia Sofia and the Topkapi Palace makes the Blue Mosque easier to visit but it is simply not as grand. The Suleymaniye also provided incredible views of the entire city and was much less crowded with tourists. So tell me which do you like better?
