iPhone vs. Android: Which is better for you?

iPhone vs. Android is the ultimate battle of the biggest players in the mobile industry! Being the biggest and the best, choosing between these two operating systems for your smartphones is daunting. 

You might have biased views about either operating system because of your past experience. However, your previous experience isn't enough for you to make a present buying decision when it comes to these operating systems.

The easiest way to start an argument is by saying that you prefer one over another. The truth about these operating systems is that they both have their advantages and drawbacks. When it comes to choosing the operating system for you, you need to weigh in these factors.

Comparing the Key Features of an iPhone And an Android 

The only real choices in the mobile market are iPhones and Android phones. The reason being that the other alternatives don’t have anything as close to iPhones and Androids. 

So, let’s delve a little deeper into the key aspects of these operating systems! 


The ease of use of the iPhone and Android interface is quite similar. Historically speaking, when the iPhone was launched more than a decade ago, it was better than Nokia and Windows phones.

When you view them at present, Android phones and iPhones are similar to use if not difficult. Although, if you’re looking towards customization and application control, Android gives you more control. 

The flexibility that Android phones give is far superior to that of iPhones. So, if you're looking to set up your phone in a way that you like, then Android is the one for you.

Hardware Finish and Price 

The high price of an iPhone is truly justified in its high-quality hardware and finish that seems to last over the years. However, when it comes to Android smartphones, the phones' quality and the hardware used vary.  

For many, the fit, price, and finish of the smartphone is a huge buying decision, as it should be. So, it is advised to get the best Android phone from the top and expensive manufacturers like Samsung or Google Pixel. If not, you might not be getting the same quality as that of iPhones. The cheaper alternatives in android phones aren't that great. 

Integrated and Consistent Experience

We all love our gadgets and devices interconnected. Especially when you have so many smart devices, it makes sense that they should work together. This is where an iPhone and other Apple products are a clear winner over Android.

Unlike Android, Apple has explored the smart devices industry. Apple offers the continuity feature so that your calls, messages, emails, and all data can be shared and accessed across iWatch, Mac, and iPhone.

Google offers some level of continuity over applications like Maps, Gmail, and Google Now. However, if you are craving a unified experience, you should stick to Apple products.

Voice Assistants 

Apple blew us away when they launched the AI-powered Siri back in 2011. The appeal of Siri lasted on for a couple of years until Google's Voice Assistant came along.

It is no secret that Google’s Voice Assistant is far better than Siri. Google Assistant is much better in terms of interface and having seamless continuity across all google applications. It makes it much better. 


Software Updates 

If you're a fan of everything latest, then iPhones are the one for you. The reason being that Apple rolls out the latest versions of their OS so that every phone compatible can update. But, that's not the case with android smartphones.

Android is comparatively slow in giving out operating system updates. Being open-source, Android also gives low-security features. If you are giving priority on security features and rolls out updates to all compatible devices faster than Android phones, you can visit the Apple Store and look there for the right fit.


iPhones and Androids are the best-operating systems out there. You can get lost while comparing the features of these both, so it’s best to pick one according to your needs. 

More appropriately, you should approach this never-ending argument by mapping out your needs and budget. If your needs are fulfilled by an iPhone and afford it, then go for it. Also, if you have a tight budget and are looking for a decent phone, you can find affordable options on Android!
