Android is most common and a very comprehensive OS (released in 2008)with a lot of features and functions . It has largest market share in smartphone category and is still growing.

It’s more difficult to use than IOS but you can become used to it. It’s also highly customizable from widgets to everything . But its not as robust as IOS 7 but still doesn’t lags. Due to many android devices, apps can not be optimized but powerful phones can handle them brilliantly. Unlike apple there are thousands of android phones from hundreds of manufacturers that you can purchase ,they can range from approximately $200 to $600 And can range in screen size from 3 inches to more than 6 inches. Android is way to go for geeks, programmers and developers. Android is always keen to give more and more customizability and control to the user.

Why IOS?

IOS is considered the first touch screen smartphone OS released in 2007 by Apple for iPhone under the Apple CEO Steve Jobs. It is the second most common smartphone OS.

IOS doesn’t have many options and has limited functionality and is good for those who are not quite nerdy and like simple and easy to use OS. But what I like about this OS is its responsiveness and fast robust switching and opening of apps. All of IOS apps have been brilliantly optimized due to limited IOS devices available.One more important thing is screen size, iPhone 5 and 5s have 4 inch screen size. It’s not so customizable. Apple releases only one flagship mobile each year and it’s OS is brilliantly optimized for its hardware because it has a specific amount of ram, processor e.t.c. So Apple can program it’s OS in such a way that it efficiently benefits from the hardware meaning that midrange iPhone specification can match or in some cases out perform high end specification of android. IOS is a great and flawless and crashed much less frequently than android. It’s also more frequently updated by Apple to solve any problem that arise than android which depends upon its manufacturer as well as Google.

Major smartphone shipments by OS

Malware, spyware, hacking and loop holes

One major problem arises in android due to its open source nature is loop holes so it’s more vulnerable to malware , spyware and hacking . Apple is less vulnerable to these problems due to its closed source. So IOS is generally more safer option. It doesn’t mean that android is not safe, but comparatively it’s more prone to them.


Personally, I like both. According to me iPhone or IOS is sleek , robust and very simple OS (it just works ;p)While on the other hand android is a complex, comprehensive and powerful OS which can do much more than IOS.So it’s abstruse to fight over them because it’s not worth it. Its funny to see all people fighting upon android and IOS.The fact is that all OS are great in their functionality , usability and user friendliness but what actually matters is how you want to use it?, what do you expect from it? What do you want to do with it? . Anyways do let me know I case I forgot something . Peace. 🙂
