Reasons Why Android Is Better Than iPhone

1

Recently the market has been flooded with releases of new phones from Apple and Android.

So there will always be a debate about the best phone. We know iPhone is always sought after but there are reasons why Android is better than iPhone.

Let us have a look at why Android is better than iPhone.

Customization

Apple offers very little customization irrespective of what your needs or wants are. It locks the user interface. Whereas with Android you can download thousands of third-party applications as per your needs. You can have your own launcher and make you phone look completely unique.

Hardware

Android phones come in various sizes- big and small, even giant sizes. They have built-in projectors, QWERTY keyboards and replaceable batteries.  They are designed to survive fall or being dropped in water. Whereas the iPhone is a delicate phone and cannot take a beating.

Back button

Android’s back button offers a really modest and accommodating way to return to a previous screen irrespective where you are. The button even works across apps. If you hit a link and get land up on the Chrome browser, you can return to the social media app when you press the back button.

On the iPhone 6s, you can use only app-specific navigation or press the home button to end up back on the home screen. That’s a lot more tapping to do which results in wasting your time.

Multi-window

You can multitask on your Android phone. Phones from Samsung or LG allow you to split your screen between two apps, for for example, look at the company’s Web page in one window while you reply to your client’s in another. Apple has added a split-screen view in iOS 9, but for tablets only.

Universal chargers

Android phones are depended on the USB chargers, but charger meets the requirement of all the Android phones. Whereas the Apple phones have “lightning” cables. But the older cables will not charge the new Apple devices. Plus the Apple chargers are far too expensive than the USB chargers.

NFC support

Right from the beginning, Android phones had the NFC support (Near field communication). With this feature, it becomes easier to exchange files, contacts etc. Apple has these feature on iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, but you can use it only for Apple Pay.

More Storage

Most of the Android phones offer more storage at less money. You can easily open the back of the phone an insert a Micro SD card which adds more memory to your phone. But, with Apple you can do that, you have to spend big bucks to upgrade from 16 GB to 32 GB or 64 GB. Android completely wins over Apple here.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Lionel Gurjao

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
