The war between iPhone and Android users has been going on since long. Millions of users on both sides are ready to dive into heated debates in order to defend the honor of their favorite operating system. However, we still don’t see a conclusion to the question, “Which is better, Android or iOS?”
Hopefully, we will be able to clear out some major confusions that people have about both operating systems. Follow us as we discuss different aspects of both giants in a little detail.
If you are not a hardcore user who relies completely on the use of a smartphone, then accessibility might not be an issue for you. Both operating systems are able to function flawlessly when it comes to accomplishing routine tasks such as shopping, commuting, socializing, and so on.
Both operating systems enable you to browse seamlessly through the internet. Even if you wish to enjoy services like FiOS® Digital Voice by Frontier FiOS internet service, that also works like a charm no matter what the operating system you may be running.
When it comes to your pocket, the two giants may part ways slightly. If we talk about the iOS platform, you only have access to an elegant line of Apple iPhones, all of which are a symbol of excellence, but require you to make a significant dive into your pockets.
On the other hand, Android is available on a number of different branded smartphones. While there are some models that can comfortably take on the gigantic iPhone, particularly Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G and Huawei Mate 40 Pro+, there are also models that are easier for low-income users to purchase.
If you talk about Apple, there are certain perks and benefits for a loyal iPhone user. For instance, you can access certain apps only if you have an Apple iPhone; you cannot enjoy these remarkable apps on any other operating system introduced yet. This exclusivity only comes with Apple.
In contrast, you can download almost all apps available on Android Play Stores from the Apple App Store as well. You won’t need to buy a completely new phone for you to enjoy a certain app.
Here, Android smartphones may have an edge over the spectacular iPhone. You can seamlessly connect an Android phone to your computer systems and other devices that you may have without any dedicated software. Android smartphones can even benefit from data cables from other Android phones as they all use a universal design.
Whereas Apple users cannot connect and successfully use all the features of iOS on other systems without first installing the dedicated Apple iCloud software. No matter how small of a synchronization, you need the software. What’s more, you cannot charge iPhones with any cable other than and a dedicated Apple data cable.
The potential of both operating systems seem to overtake each other in several areas. Let’s take battery life, for example, Apple users are often seen searching for a charger even if they have only used their phone for a few hours before that.
On the other hand, Android users can somewhat relax, that is if they have the right model, with extensive battery backup and its limitless potential. That being said, even though some Android phones may have a larger battery that does not mean it will stop the phone from lagging, overheating, etc. This is something that only iPhone users may be able to take pride in so far.
Another thing that Android has an advantage over iOS is the level of customization that it offers for its users. Android users can lavishly enjoy a number of unique features such as custom widgets, weather animations, and dynamic displays.
Whereas Apple can still relies on a relatively simpler format that offers much fewer customization options and consumer interventions. Apple does not yet offer its users features such as custom desktop launchers or similar features to captivate the audience.
In terms of security, Apple may still be ahead in the race. Apple users are relatively less affected by cyber-attacks as compared to Android users. Since Apple relies on an exclusive OS that no other brand hosts, maybe that gives it an advantage over the famous Android operating system.
The Final Verdict
At the end of the day, both operating systems have some solid arguments for claiming the title of “Best Operating System.” However, comfort and familiarity with an operating system solely depend upon a person’s own personal preferences. We hope that we have helped clear the picture a little.
