Whether you are passionate about smartphones or not, you will come across, at some point or another, the question of which operating system is better: iOS or Android? Aside from the fact that you will find loyal fans on both camps, the question does have relevance for investing in a smartphone device that offers a smooth and interactive user experience.
However, the very definition of what is regarded as a good smartphone experience is contested due to differences in apps, affordability, and user interface. In this post, we compare and contrast both operating systems according to these factors and give our final verdict.
First and foremost, the user interface is both colorful and fluid on iOS and Android operating systems. Both utilize home screens that are easy to customize, along with scroll down notifications and app drawers that provide updates and access to the most common settings at the click of a button. However, when comparing the two, Android runs differently on each device and so the claims of a universal Android experience does not hold true. Depending on what Android version you are using, the user interface can be sluggish, excellent or simply average.
iOS, on the other hand, provides a far more consistent and smooth user interface experience, mainly due to the fact that it is not run on open source software platform as in the case of Android. Using the iOS is not only fluid, but also more responsive and de-cluttered in its appearance. This uniform and stylish interface allows it to stand out unlike Android.
Apps are another aspect that requires close inspection. iOS operates on a closed source platform policy, which means that app developers do not have room to tweak program features according to individual use. Although this is somewhat of a disadvantage for app developers, it does result in higher quality of apps for users. This is why many of the apps are first released on iOS rather than Android. Apps on the Android do benefit from increased customization, but suffer from higher rate of crashes and other inconsistencies. Thus, iOS takes the lead in the app contest.
However, when it comes to side loading and alternative download methods, Android is far more convenient. Aside from its Play Store, Android users have the convenience of downloading apps from various other third-party stores and have access to greater variety of apps than that offered by iOS.
Apple’s iOS has always been marketed as a high end and premium operating system, which is why its headsets tend to be more expensive. Android handsets, on the other hand, are cheaper and allow users access to far more apps and an intuitive user interface along with it. However, this does not necessarily mean that Android only caters to the budget friendly. In addition to price, Android has a major advantage of variety and scale, from low-end phones to more high-end ones such as those from Samsung. This very advantage has enabled Android to take a huge slice of the market share at the expense of Apple’s and continues to provide excellent operating system software advantages.
