What Is Behind Android vs iOS's Debate?

Terrific times and a longtime battle the Android vs iOS debate has taken from all the bloggers, news writer, social media, business, etc. There are millions of posts related to this topic, but I would like to take a different approach that no other writers have taken before.

We are not going to be subjective; I will say that everybody should use whatever they like the most, there is not right or wrong argument simply diverse needs and opinions.

So, we all should stop the train wrecked about which one is better because each one will be in different scenarios. Let me take cars for examples, do you prefer SUV, Sedan, Convertible? We will guess that you will have one of the next reasons for each of the options:

  • SUV: family, big, secure car; it can take you to any place you want
  • Sedan: you like aerodynamics, you do not like how much gas a SUV consumes, you want something that drive you here and there in rural areas.
  • Convertible: you like sporty-nice looking cars, you do not care much about gas consumption or the risks that a convertible car have if it decides to roll over.

You may or may not agree with the examples in some way, it just depends about the circumstances where you place them. Mountain trip: SUV; Going to work: Sedan; Going to the beach: Convertible.

Same analogy occurs with phone and the operative systems and in the last couple of years the differences that existed between them is narrower each time.

Now iOS supports widgets, and I will say they are better implemented than the comparable feature in Android phones; In the other hand Android supports 120Hz refresh rate screens which allow you to see smoother transitions between apps, games, etc.

Bonus: Did you know that Apple uses LG and Samsung screen in many of their products? The biggest rival to iPhone (Samsung) is also one of their top suppliers for the wonderful screen iPhones have.

So, rather than looking for pros and cons, you should be looking for what makes more sense for you; Google, Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi, Apple ecosystem; I am sure that there are millions of videos and blog posts that outline each of the ecosystem’s benefits that I am not interested in getting into for now.

What do you think, do you different from my opinion? Join me in the comment sections.
