The battle between iPhone and Android will exist forever. IOS (iPhone OS) and Android are two operating systems that dominate the smartphone market.
Both platforms are considered quite "mature", as they have existed for more than ten years. This means that both operating systems have many opportunities. However, everyone has their own advantages and there are reasons why one can choose one or the other.
Let's see a comparison of the two mobile platforms:
iPhone vs Android: Why is iPhone better?
Ability to move from iPhone to other Apple devices: If you already have Apple devices, such as Mac, iPad or Apple Watch, buying an iPhone can be very useful, because the company allows you to transfer tasks and data from one device to another, which helps a lot in saving time. take it Handoff, for example, where your iPhone calls and Safari pages can move smoothly between iOS and MacOS. Another example is Continuity Camera, which lets you take photos and scan documents using your iPhone camera and then view and edit them on your Mac.
On the other, Few Android phone manufacturers have hardware ecosystems similar to Apple. Samsung is approaching, but it is not so effective. THE Microsoft products helps her Google to fill this gap with the new application "your PhoneFor Windows, which allows Android users to reply to texts and alerts on their computers. However, improvements need to be made.
There are still many other examples of transferring tasks from iPhone to other Apple devices and this is one of the biggest advantages of this particular smartphone.
Third-party applications for iPhone are better: This is clearly in the personal judgment of everyone, but many argue that the quality of applications Designed by iOS developers is better than Android apps. This does not mean that there are no great Android software and developers.
It is said, however, that applications from well-known companies (eg banks or airlines) are a little more meticulous and "clean" in iOS compared to Android, with better integration in the basic services of the phone, such as Wallet.
There is no bloatware: Another advantage of the iPhone is that when you buy a new phone (regardless of model and place and method of purchase), you will not find pre-installed bloatware when you open the device. This means that it is clean from the beginning, without unwanted software.
This is not found on Android devices, which usually come with a variety of applications and software, which users they do not want.
There is a greater variety of accessories: If you look at TargetThe Best Buy or other companies, you will find a wide variety of cases and other accessories for every iPhone model manufactured by Apple. You do not find this on Android. Usually, The accessories on the market are intended for the top Android Appliances from the largest companies. Of course, you can find cases and other accessories for Android in other markets, but there is not much variety, and the quality may not be the best.
Faster software updates: The telephones Android receive fewer updates from iPhones and many times there are delays.
The number of updates an Android phone receives depends largely on how expensive it is, from which carrier it was purchased (or if purchased by a carrier), and the phone manufacturer's software support policy.
On the contrary, iPhones receive many important software updates for many years in all cases.
Additionally, when a new iOS version is released, is available to everyone on the same day and can be installed on all models that support it. Instead, Android versions are available in batches, on individual phones.
iPhone vs Android: Why is Android better?
Larger variety of phones and a wide range of prices: H overwhelming majority of smartphones run the Android operating system and because many Companies build Android Appliances, You can find phones in a wide range of prices. There are very cheap and simple phones and some of the best and most expensive phones, phablets, foldable smartphones etc.
Due to the huge variety, you can find smartphones with many possibilities and at affordable prices.
The same can not be said for iPhones, which are usually quite expensive when released, while lower prices are only found on older models.
Users can make more changes and adapt them to their needs: Android has always had a reputation as the platform for users who like to play and adjust their devices. For example, users they can do various things like place their apps anywhere on a page etc. This feature is only available in iOS 14.
Android also lets you download applications third parties replacing basic services (eg web browsers, keyboards, etc.) and set them as default. IOS has improved in this area but not enough Android.
It is allowed to expand the storage space: Many Android phones still offer it expandable storage space with microSD card to store photos, apps, and more data that do not fit in the internal memory of your device.
This is very important considering the exorbitant prices charged by Apple and other manufacturers for double or quadruple storage when you purchase your device.
In addition, several Android devices still have a headphone jack, while Apple has withdrawn it in recent years. However, there are many people who still love and use the classic headphones.
There is a real file system (with drag-and-drop support on the computer): When you connect an Android device to a computer Windows, you can easily drag files to folders using the drag-and-drop method.
This means it is easy to transport and store locally. IPhones, on the other hand, hide the file system from user (except for the photos) and so on It is not easy to manage music, documents and other media.
USB-C is universal: Android phones rely heavily on USB-C ports for charging and porting data. This is very convenient if you want to carry only one cable.
Android gets the innovative features first: H Apple has definitely brought new interesting ideas. But it is only one company with a specific philosophy. Manufacturers Android there are many and therefore the ideas for new functions and features appear more often (eg wireless charging, fast charging, NFC monitors, 4G LTE, 5G, OLED, on-screen fingerprint sensors, multitasking, etc.).
Which to choose?
Both iPhones and Android devices have their advantages and disadvantages. Your choice will depend on what you ask of her device you.
