Android vs iPhone,which suits you?
Android vs iPhone:I will review all the major parameters of both iOS and android OS devices so that you can choose depending on which one favors you the most. I have used android for so many years, but I decided to buy an iPhone just to have a look and experience on how it perfume and everything. You choice and mine cannot be the same so that is why I have decided to only give details on each device. My concentration will be much on these latest smartphones like Samsung galaxy S10 for android and iPhone XR for iPhone. Android is owned by Google while Apple owns iPhone.
Android vs iPhone
|Mostly expensive.most apple phones are expensive
Most apps on apple play store are paid
|Price||Mostly cheaper. most android phones are fairly priced.
Most Android apps on google play store are free.
|iOs has restrictions. only apple company can develop the operating system.
You cannot make any modification to iOS to meet the market demand.
|Source Code openness||Android is open source Os. Any one competent enough can develop an android Os for some improvements
Also compatible with most apps developers make.
|iPhones have great camera quality also, the latest XR has 5x digital zoom which is far less than Samsung S10||Camera||Android phones got great cameras, depending on which phone you are dealing with. for example Samsung S10 has 10x digital zoom|
|2g, 3g, 4g available to most iphones||Network connectivity||2g, 3g, 4g available with most androids|
|iPhone battery isnt that strong that is the truth.
for example, the latest iPhone XR has 2942mAh battery capacity far from Samsung S10 which has3400mAh
|Battery||Androids have both removable and non removable batteries.
If you need a phone with long lasting battery go for android particularly Tecno phantom. On this one I give credit to Tecno company. It has 3700mAh capacity. also infinix has phones with great battery
|iPhone has great storage but it depends which version. some up to 128gb just like Android phones.
Expanding memory is not common with iPhone
|Storage||Most android phones have great storage capacities. Ranging from 8gb to 128gb. Others have more than that
Storage in most androids is expandable using external cards upto 512gb in Samsung S10
|when is comes to durability all the credit goes to Apple. apple has very strong phones and made of metal most of them. if you want durable phone then iPhone is your answer.||Durability||Android phones are strong but not compared to iPhone. Depending on the brand some are much stronger than other androids but not to be compared with iPhone.|
|iPhone has security flaws too but not as much as android. due to its closed source the advantage is bigger security-wise
Though resetting an iPhone isn’t simple it is not immuned from being stolen.
|Security||Due to open source android security isn’t that good. People can manipulate the system for malicious gain.
The system can easily be reset for theft purposes despite Google’s FRP
|Apple has maintained its good quality due to its closed source. no one can pirate Apple products.||Product quality||quality phones in android depends on the brand. the cloned android phones are flooding the market due to android being the open source.|
|apple is not more flexible on themes. If you want to change your phone’s screen appearance it means changing the device or upgrading it.
Settings are not complex with iPhone.
|Customization||Truly android offers great customization for its devices. There are so many theme options to chose from. make your screen look the way you want it to.
settings are also simple and offer more options, depending on which brand is running the android
|Apple has icloud for personal data storage and management. the good part it is unified for all the personal data types.you can control it in a unique way according to how you want it to be accessed.||Cloud computing/personal data management||Android has google cloud storage but you have to install different apps. google drive, google contact, google notes etc. things are scattered|
|iPhone shapes and sizes are almost the same. you cant do anything about it. you have to what the company offered you.||Shapes and Sizes||I bet android phones comes in different shapes and sizes. you have to choose which one is good for you
you can go from one brand to the other untill you find what you like most.
|iPhone is known for single sim card. the new XR has an eSim but is not generally supported by many network carries.||Sim cards||Android phones offer both dual and single sim slots.
Nano,Min, and Micro sim cards compatible ports.
|In most iPhones there hexa-cores cpu.
perfomance is grest though.
The iPhone XR has hexa-core with maximum cpu running @2.49 Ghz
|Processors||Androids comes with many CPU Cores ranging from octa-core to Deca-cores. this gives great Perfomance.
For example, Samsung S10 has octa-cores with maximum cpu running @ 2.73 Ghz.
|iPhone too is user friendly unless the user is a BBC (Born Before Computer).||User friendliness||Android is user friendly. They are not difficult to operate. they are simple to maneuver with function-wise.|
|Apple is good when it comes to its customer support. They provide guide and other repair support to their phones.||Customer support by OS owner||android support is present on Os upgrades but nothing much outside that. We can excuse google because it is not the manufacturer of all android powered devices.|
Disadvantages of iPhone
When you buy an iPhone its company owns part of it because of the restriction. You do not have a complete ownership of the gadget per say.
I am not saying it is bad because some people like iPhone while others likes android. Being android fun for many years, I tried to buy Apple’s iPhone just to feel how it is to use an iPhone.
I can tell you the experience I got wasn’t good. I do not know if this depends on what I use my phone for or what. the waste thing is that I couldn’t use my favorite apps it seems they are only available to android Os. Most of the things are restricted with iOs and I do not know why. The device seems to be expensive almost for nothing. On the other hand android apps are mostly free on google play store.
Disadvantage of Android phones
Due to its open source Os anyone can modify the system and make the device vulnerable to security concerns. Theft is common with android phones because they are easy to wipe and change the IMEI while iPhone isn’t that simple and few are familiar with it.
there are so many gong android phones because of its open source. any one can do whatever they feel and find market especially in African countries. too many substandard android phones on the market.
when it comes to security android is not ideal. Despite FRP phones can still be bypassed to make stealing successful.
Android vs iPhone Summary.
Android vs iPhone? It all depends on what purpose you need a phone for and also price consideration. from the above descriptions you are able to chose the phone that will make much sense to you. for regular phone users you may need to chose iphone because it has restrictions and you wont worry about it. if you like many apps for free android is your choice.
