The iOS and Android powered phones are ruling the smartphones market and a lot of people are still confused between buying an Android or iPhone. I know what it feels like deciding what to choose between the two because both of them are great products bundled with amazing features. The fact is; there must me a difference between the two products, that’s what I going to discuss in this article and that’s the best way out of the confusion.
First of all, let’s look at the operating system comparison. If you are the kind of person who wants to see his smartphone with the updated OS, then iOS is your best destination. Apple is the only company that has full control over its update and adds all the latest features to the iPhone while its Android counterpart is experiencing a slow process of OS update and sometimes their smartphones with older OS ends up not supporting all types of apps.
Secondly, when it comes to battery life iPhone is still you best destination. Most iPhone batteries go for days without charging while Android on the other hand does not try. The Android devices with 4-inch and above screen size drains battery more than those with lower screen size. Most Android powered devices need a charge after 8 hours of work.
When it comes to hardware design, iPhone is the champion; it is confirmed to be the thinnest smartphone in market. It also has a colorful 4-inch retina display and the iPhone 5 is very light in weight compared to other Android devices which does not even have a standard design due to variations from different companies making Android smartphones. For example, when you look at iPhone it’s made by the one and only Apple but when you talk about Android you are dealing with products like Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony Ericsson, etc which all have different designs.
The iPhone is believed to have a faster performance than their Android counterparts. This point is drawn from fact the iPhone is better than most Android devices when it comes to data speed because it supports true 4G LTE networking.
When it comes to apps, one would argue that the Android platform is flooded with loads of apps to use and i don’t agree with that. The Apple App store has over 350,000 apps compatible with iPhone while the Android market has around 150,000 apps and what you should know is that iPhone apps are better developed and have higher quality than that of Android. They are also easier to use and comes in full features.
Looking at gaming, the Android platform is widely expected to have free games and apps. This made game developers to treat the platform as a second class destination and go for the iOS at first since they will have what they are interested in. Money!
Note that the Android powered devices have their own advantages over the iPhone and that’s a topic of its own too. I believe that people have different variations in regard to what they want in a smartphone. The choice for the right smartphone that would suit your needs depends on what you really need in it.
