I've seen both movies twice.
For me, the most enjoyable part of Infinity War is also its greatest weakness - all the characters. It's truly magical seeing all those MCU characters together in one epic movie. But, after the first viewing, that feeling wears off quickly and you realize it's lacking on substance; it's 90% action and fighting. It's the same problem I have with the first Avengers, except it's more egregious with IW because there are way more characters and most of them are just there for the action scenes. Apart from that, the magic of this major crossover event also loses a lot of its value if you haven't kept up on most of the prior MCU films, of which there are a dozen or so.
I found Aquaman to be a more enjoyable and fun film, whereas IW was more of an experience. I’ve seen Aquaman several times and only saw IW in theaters. I think they are both the best films in their respective franchises. But man the action and visuals in Aquaman just blew me away. I gotta give it to fishro
