When it comes to buying one of the best smartphones, the first choice can be the hardest: i Phone or Android.
It's not simple; both offer a lot of great features and they may seem basically the same other than brand and price.
But unless your watch, tablet, phone, and computer are all made by the same company – and there aren't too many companies other than Samsung that make products in all of those categories – there's no unified experience.
Winner: i Phone Both smartphone platforms generally work pretty well and, for day-to-day use, don't usually malfunction.
Key apps also almost always debut first on i OS, with Android versions coming later, if they come at all.
Winner: i Phone There was a time when mobile video gaming was dominated by Nintendo’s 3DS and Sony’s Playstation Vita. Apple's devices like the i Phone and i Pod touch, are perhaps the dominant players in the mobile video game market, with tens of thousands of great games and tens of millions of players.On the other hand, Google offers the Android software to many phone makers, including Samsung, HTC, LG, and Motorola.Because of that, Android phones vary widely in size, weight, features, and quality.The general expectation that Android apps should be free has led game developers interested in making money to develop for i Phone first and Android second.In fact, due to problems with developing for Android, some game companies have stopped creating games for it all together.Premium-priced Android phones tend to be as good as the i Phone in terms of hardware quality, but cheaper Android options are more prone to problems.Of course i Phones can have hardware issues, too, but they're generally higher quality.Winner: i Phone The Apple App Store offers fewer apps than Google Play (around 2.1 million vs.3.5 million, as of April 2018), but overall selection isn’t the most important factor.The makers of the phones – not users – control when the OS is released for their phones and, as stats shows, most companies are very slow to update.So, if you want the latest and greatest as soon as it's ready, you need an i Phone.
