We have all been to debate competitions during our school and college life but what is the world debating about right now? The debate between the top two operating systems are such a topic in which no side wins. The iconic battle between Android and iOS has created a wild rift in the mobile market. So, when we are out to get ourselves a new, shiny phone we are often stuck between a fruit and a robot. With so many great features and the relatively similar prices, we are always in a dilemma as to which way to go. Sure, there are other OS, but most people choose Android phone or an iPhone since Microsoft appears to be fighting a losing battle with Windows phones, and Amazon has already given up with the only phone it ever made: you can no longer buy a Fire Phone.
THE CHANGING POINT
Android is now the world’s most commonly used smartphone platform and is used by many different phones manufacturers. iOS has is only used on Apple devices, such as the iPhone. Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on a modified version of the Linux Kernel and other open source software and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. iOS, on the other hand, is a mobile operating system created and develop by Apple inc. exclusively for its hardware. It is the operating system that presently powers many of the company’s mobile devices, including the iPhone iPad and iPod Touch.
There was a time when the developers release the apps for iOS first, and Android users tend to have to wait to for a while to get them. Android has over 3 million apps and iOS has 2.2 million. Outside for a few exceptions apps are available on both platforms and typically there’s no wait for the Android version. The breadth of choices excellent on both. The Play Store still has a higher percentage of free apps from the app store but the best mobile game still land on iOS first and they don’t always come to Android.
Apple is known for its pricey phones. But the iPhone X took things to a whole new level with a whopping start of Rs. 83,000. For sheer scale and variety, nothing competes with Android.
You can spend a lot if you want to, for example, Google’s Pixel 2 phones and Samsung’s Galaxy Note line almost match Apple’s iPhone pricing, but there’s also a huge choice of low-cost handsets from a wide variety of different manufacturers and the platform has been deliberately optimized to run on low-end hardware. The fact that Android also leads the field in free apps makes it the natural choice for the budget-conscious.
BATTERY LIFE AND CHARGING POINT
When comparing Android and iOS devices, battery life plays a major role. However, it’s difficult, maybe impossible, to say unconditionally whether one mobile OS has an edge over the other.
Apple offers different versions of the iPhone and iPad comma and their dozens of Android phones and tablets from a variety of manufacturers. By comparing battery ratings and tests, the most you can say is that the battery life of iOS and Android devices are largely comparable, but there is plenty that you can do to get the most out of any mobile devices battery. most Android smartphones have batteries with higher mAh ratings than the iPhone, so you’d be tempted to conclude that Android battery life is always better than iOS battery life. But there are more variables to consider.
CALLS AND MESSAGING
Basic calling and messaging functionality is good on both platforms, but it can be confusing on Android. Google appeared to be folding everything into Hangouts, which allows messages, SMS, video chat, group chat, and more via Wi-Fi or your data network. There is also Android messages, which used to be called Google messenger, and it’s the default texting app.
FaceTime and iMessage come pre installed on every iPhone and iPad, so it’s remarkably easy to connect with your friends and family. While iMessage is very easy to use, it works best when communicating with other iPhone users. You’ll find third party app integrating fun stickers, GIFs and much more in message.
This is a difficult category to call. In the past, we’ve argued that Apple does the best job capturing lighting, colouring, and other details, but the latest Android smartphones are making us change our opinion. Google’s Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL boast the best cameras we’ve used so far, but the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X come close.
The camera apps on both platforms a very good and very first there is more variation on Android simply because me and then to at their own camera apps with lot of features, some good, some a bit gimmicky. For ease of use and best results without tweaking, the iOS camera app takes the cake.
Different categories count for different amounts to different people. Some people care about the look and the brand, some will value hardware, while others be inclined towards the battery life or mobile gaming. There are several types of Operating system in the smartphone market but Google’s Android and iPhone’s iOS are the alphas. But you know, what they say about wolf packs; there can’t be two alphas, someone’s got to be the beta. So who’s it gonna be? The green eyes or the blue?
