The Battle Between IOS and Android!

Android or IOS, a Commonly Asked Question?

Apple’s IOS and Google’s Android are the operating systems used in the mobile technology that is prevalently used on smartphones and tablets. Which is best for you? It boils down to personal preference and the functionality that you enjoy at the end of the day. The rivalry between the two is quite strong with each user debating to the death why their chosen OS is the one to use.


To be honest, after more than a decade on the market, both of these OS have amassed huge numbers of features and there isn’t too much that one can do that the other can’t. Some still do, however, find valid reasons why one should be chosen over the other.


Android

The little green widget has won a place in the hearts of many.


The Android operating system is largely based on the programming language Linux and predominantly open-source. What this means is that you don’t need any particularly specialised software to run any of the software, you also don’t need to buy specialised accessories. The Android operating system is far more similar to a PC than IOS systems.


Android is the most popular choice of OS by most smartphone and tablet manufacturers. Android is definitely the budget beater of the two. Android devices come in a range of prices that allows anyone to enjoy the benefits of a smartphone.


Android devices are extremely customisable and their ability to download third-party Apps to replace core services is a winning feature. An Android device is much easier to personalise and make yours while still maintaining high-quality, efficient functionality. Isn't that what we all want from a smartphone?


IOS

The once-bitten apple logo is iconic, there is no other way to describe it. This is one brand that has firmly staked its claim in the market.


The IOS operating system is a closed system which effectively means that you can’t simply download open-source software for use on a device. IOS systems require specific software and applications to function. IOS systems are only implemented and used by Apple. While Android does appear to be by far the most popular of the two, the uniform design elements of IOS are often viewed as more user-friendly. Third-party Apps for IOS just seem to be that much better than those offered up by Android and the accessories on offer are diverse with an extremely wide range available.


Software updates on IOS systems are more frequent than those offered by Android devices ensuring that your software is always running at peak performance. Purchasing an Apple or IOS device doesn't come with the customary no pre-installed energy or data devouring Apps that are often part of any new Android device. Your Apple device is a clean slate from where you can begin your journey. After purchase retail support is far superior to that offered by retailers selling Android devices. When you are paying large amounts of money for a device, customer service and aftercare is the cherry on the proverbial cake.


Making the Right Choice for You

When it comes to making the choice that is best suited to your application and uses of your mobile device, it is purely a personal one. Most android users don’t enjoy the IOS experience, however, those who use Apple will disagree profusely. It goes without saying that making the choice must be carefully considered. Changing from one to the other will mean downloading and possibly purchasing all the Apps all over again. There will also be a period of uncertainty as you navigate the new operating system and its functionality. For many, a smartphone runs their daily lives and businesses. Making the right choice is imperative to streamlined efficiency and total control.


As an Android user myself, I just couldn’t get used to using IOS. The system seemed user-friendly enough, the Apps phenomenal and the aesthetics next level, however, for me Android just seemed the more adaptable to my personal uses for the device but that’s just me. I am sure millions of IOS users the world over would disagree.
