Several factors come to play when choosing which smartphone to go for. Both platforms offer good choices for different people. A person would need to decide the factors that are most important to him or her and then choose the phone that best meet such needs. The factors include:
Operating System Compatibility
Most companies are very slow when it comes to updating their operating system. Apple does this better. Android makers are too slow at updating their phones to the latest version of the Android operating system and some do not even update their phones at all. To be sure you have the latest version of your smartphone operating system, the iPhone is what you should be considering.
Android phones vary widely in size, weight, quality, and features. This is because Google offers the Android software to many phone makers. Only Apple makes iPhones, so it has very tight control over how its hardware generally goes.
Quality-priced Android phones tend to be as good as the iPhone in terms of hardware quality, but the relatively low pricy ones are far behind, and these relatively low pricy ones are much more available. In buying an iPhone, you only need to pick a model while for Android devices, you would need to pick a brand and a model. Some may prefer the greater choice Android offers and others would appreciate Apple’s simplicity.
Apple devices like the iPod touch and iPhone are the dominant players in the mobile video game market. They have tens of thousands of great games and tens of millions of players. Some are already projecting that Apple will soon eclipse Nintendo and Sony as the leading mobile game platform.
Apple is creating more powerful game technologies and its tight integration of hardware and software makes this even easier. Android certainly has its fair share of good games, but the iPhone has a clear advantage.
Integration with other devices
Apple offers a more consistent and integrated experience for persons who use computers, tablets, and wearables like watches in addition to their smartphones. You can unlock your Mac using an Apple Watch, you can even start an email on your iPhone while walking and finish it later on getting home. With Apple, all your devices can receive incoming calls coming into your iPhone. Android devices hardly have such a unified experience.
The Google Assistant, which is the most prominent artificial intelligence assistant is an intelligent assistant on Android. It uses every information Google has about you and your world to make life easier for you. Notifications as regards your routines daily or otherwise can be sent to you; you get a notification to leave early if your Google calendar knows you are to meet someone. Siri plays almost the same function for Apple devices but the Google Assistant is well ahead.
