I have american accent. So I guess i prefer american. And i know more about american english words than British english words. But it's true that British accent sounds more polite.

I personally prefer British accent, because it sounds more polite and elegant, but some words I pronounce in American way. Before I started learning English on this website I spoke American English, but since I use this website for learning English I changed my mind and felt like I like British accent. So I definitely can distinguish American native speakers from British ones.

the British accent might be more polite, but I prefer the American accent because I hear it clearer than British.

I prefer American accent because I speak it with my theachers. It's cool! But it's true that British accent is more clear and polite.
