iPhone OS vs Android

Well there's really no thread yet on this exact topic and I think this is a great topic, plus gives me room for an article later on.


What is better? Iphone OS or Android? Give me at least 3 reasons why you think one's better or worse! I'm all ears and don't judge upon decisions.

Re: iPhone OS vs Android

I'll give you 3 reasons for each -


Why Android is better:


1) more attractive and customizable UI - an Android device now comes stock with LWPs, widgets, different homescreens, different flavors (sense, touchwiz, stage, aosp). Stock iOS all you can do is change the background and have folders. Jailbroken you really customize the iOS UI a lot, but it takes a lot of know-how and work.

2) development: with Android, you can port any device to almost any other device, you can create custom kernels, flash new radios, custom UIs, themes, options, CM7, Sense HD. Hell i used to have a phone that ran WM6.5 and now runs CM7 on NAND! that's what you get with open source, ability to literally change any aspect of the OS.

3) More phones on more networks. What if I don't want to pay through the roof for capped data on vzw or ATT, what if I want a 3G phone on tmobile or Sprint? not going to happen, if I want an iPhone on tmobile, I have to pay 3rd party prices and unlock it, and still no 3G. On any network (even cricket now) you can get a sweet Android device, and have your choice or keyboard or not, screen sizes, etc...


Why iOS is better:


1) universally integrated OS - have you wondered why netflix has been on iOS for a while now, but taking forever on Android? How about a lot of apps not compatible with Eclair or Gingerbread? How come some apps that work on AOSP don't work right on Sense? Why can't I connect my wii remote to any sense build? More options on phones, UIs, and specs means more app fragmentation and incompatibility. It also means some apps run better on some phones.

2) more efficient OS. iPhone 4 gets better battery life than ANY android device I've seen. The OS is smoother, faster, and more responsive, even though every Android device that has come out since the Nexus One (besides the G2) has a higher clockspeed than the iPhone 4, yet every app seems to run faster and more smoothly in iOS because it's just a more efficient OS with better drivers that utilize the hardware/GPU better.

3) retina display. No matter how much you love super amoled or any other screen technology, the high resolution of retina display has gotten better reviews for its clarity and non-oversaturated colors and brightness. Personally I'd rather have insanely high resolution over any other type of amoled technology (ideally you'd have both on the same screen), but I'd choose higher resolution if I could.



having said all of this, the pros of Android for me outweigh the pros of iOS. But I like to have both and use the one I want that day.

Re: iPhone OS vs Android

android is better, but apple easily trumps in build quality of their product, and by a wide margin. Apple's products are so easy to use, a two year old can use it. The average consumer would rather trade ease of use and with less functionality for a slightly higher learning curve and more functionality.

another thing, out the box, Apple is a better product. it's ready to go. When you use android, you need to add a bunch of stuff to it to make it better. I think the iphone is slightly more reliable software wise. Android is definitely a more flexible product, but most users dont need that flexibility or even know/care about it.

Re: iPhone OS vs Android

Android FTW.
It's so much more customizable. I love playing with phones and the more access I have the better. I'm not a big fan of iOS and while its so tightly integrated it seems like a chokehold...

that being said, I agree that iOS is for those who don't really care that much about their tech. they walk around and flaunt it like its the know all see all device but truth be told if a 2 year old can use it, whats that say about them?
