Android Vs. IPhone
How it works
Today’s modern day debate: Android or Iphone? It is very rare to meet someone without a phone or an opinion on this subject. Its argumentative due to most favoring one over the other. Both phones are similar but also have pro and cons.
Hardware is the first place where the differences are made clear. Only Apple makes iPhones, so it has tight control over how the software and hardware work together. On the other hand, Google offers the Android software to many phone makers. Android offers multiple makes of phones each phone varies. Size, weight, features, and quality are something to consider in each phone that Android makes. When you’re purchasing an iPhone, you just need to pick which model you want. Downside of choosing an android is that many companies make Android devices. You’ll have to pick both a brand and a model, which can be confusing. Some people may prefer the the options that android offers, but others can appreciate Apple’s simplicity and quality.
How it works
Applications are something to consider with each phone. While android has more of a selection of apps, Iphone has more control. But it has been proven selection isn’t always the most important. Iphone does not offer as many apps as android, but the apps they do offer and compatible for iphone and ensure safety to your phone. Android has a compatibility problem, an app may be available for android phones, but since there are so many phone options they might not always work accurately. Also, there may be a security breach within the app. Android devices are at risk for getting malware which can make the phone inoperable.
In addition to using your phone most people also have tablets, watches, and computers. For people who use multiple systems Apple offers a more consistent and combined experience. Because Apple makes computers, ipads, and watches along with the iphone, it offers things that Android can’t. Apple allows you to start writing an email on one device and continue it on another. It is connected through all devices. Also, when you get a call all devices will ring. Each device is connected. Google’s offers multiple services too, such as gmail and google maps. But unless your watch, tablet, phone, and computer are all made by the same it is hard for all of your android devices to be compatible.
How long can each phone go without charging? Ultimately that depends on which android phone you have each screen varies in size and which operating system it is running on. Android does have an external battery, so you are able to switch it out as needed. Some android also offer high capacity batteries.
Older models of iphone used to not even last one day with having to be charged while newer iphones have proven to last days with minimum use. Depending on the setting of an iphone will depend on the battery life. With new operating systems the battery life has improved, but iphone still does not have as many options that android have.
Customization is something that android has down. You are able to customize just about every but of any android device. With the more options android offers, it can be confusing to use. Apple is extremely limited when it comes to customizing, but again, its simplicity is something that draws people in. With apple you aren’t able to change the default applications. While apple lacks in the customization department, its makes up for it with its quality.
The price difference between iphone and android is steep. Iphones can be hundreds of more dollars then any android device. But in the end iphones hold their value while androids do not. Iphone quality shows in its resale value. Iphones are considered a luxury item, and the longevity of the phone, means you can sell it to get the latest model.
The decision of whether to buy an iPhone or Android phone just isn’t as simple as tallying up the winners from the details I’ve provided and choosing the phone that won more categories. Different options have different values, it just depends on the user. Some people will value device compatibility, while others will care more about battery life. Both Android and Apple are good choices. You just need to decide what factors are most important to you and then choose the phone that works best for you.
