Android is exceedingly superior to IOS. Now hear me out before you angrily switch to another article, for I am not just saying that to be controversial. I have done some research (by talking to those who hold Apple in highest regard). As I was inquiring said people, one question kept popping up in my head; “User-friendliness, but at what cost? ” That is what this editorial is based upon.

 

To begin let’s look at the positives of IOS. Yes, it is user-friendly; and no it doesn’t have bloatware (pre-loaded apps that come with the phone at setup). Not to mention the lightning cable is better than micro-usb. However, that is all I can say that the iphone has going for it.


Android on the other hand, has a lot of perks. Such as its much higher versatility. Sure, Android has a bit of a learning curve, but those who have mastered it know how much Android is capable of. Android is (from a developer’s perspective) much more powerful an operating system. It even has developer tools built in, Plus anyone who can make an app can submit it to the Google Play Store, no hassle. Some models of Android have preferable cameras.

One feature that was frequently talked about during my research was how good the iphone cameras were. In actuality, Android has better cameras on particular models. Another point that was made constantly was how “stylish” the iphone is, both in its user interface and physical design. Well, my rebuttal to that is that Android is extremely customizable. It has tons of options for everything from the icons and fonts to even the actual phone. There are so many brands/models of Android that there is one for everyone. Lastly, it is more cost efficient (typically).

 

So next time you are in the market for a new smartphone, heed my advice and think twice before shelling out a couple hundred dollars for an inferior product.
