Which one to go on - android or IOS

The age-old debate of Android vs iOS will never end. Google's Android and Apple's iOS are operating systems used majorly in mobile technology, such as tablets and smartphones. Android, which is Linux-based and partly open source, is more PC-like and its interface and basic features are generally more customizable. iOS has uniform design elements that many consider as being more user-friendly.

So which one should you go for? Phone repairs Adelaide sees both operating system types daily and based on the user experience has few points that can help you decide.

1) Ease of use

People who are loyal to their precious iPhones love to say only Apple products work for them. It is certainly true that the iOS interface is quite user-friendly. The Android interface is also easy to use but different from iOS. Switching over from one type to another might take little time only.

When the iPhone was first launched in 2007, Windows Mobile and Nokia Symbian phones were the market rulers. the iPhone's innovative interface and user experience blew them away. It was a revolutionary invention. Fast forward to the current scenario and the competing features are minimal with Android phones at the helm. Both are equally matched in this department.


2) Price 

iPhones are expensive and there is no debate on that. Android on the other hand has a wide range of price lists across several models. The flagship iPhone 12 Pro Max price starts from A$1,849 and goes up to A$2369. Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra ranges from A$1,249 to A$2,149. However, there are cheap android phones starting at just $239 as well. So customers have a wide variety of options when it comes to Android. iPhone repairs Adelaide can help to source used phones at cheap rates.

One of the main reasons behind this is that Apple makes nothing but luxury phones and never a cheap iPhone. Their target audience for new phones is only the middle and upper class. Others will have to settle for a refurbished phone. Android on the other hand targets audiences in all budget ranges. So in the matter of cost-effectiveness, Android takes a win.

3) Security

Google is more relaxed than Apple in regards to the applications it will let into its app store. Google reports that 0.16% of all apps contain malware. The best way to keep malware off your Android gadget is to get apps exclusively from the Google Play store. Android phones have an option to download applications from sources other than the play store whereas Apple only allows downloads to their devices through the Apple store. Thus iPhones are relatively more secure when compared to Androids in general.

4) Open vs. Closed Systems

The iPhone remains a closed-loop and opposed to many customizations. If you’re an iPhone user interested in books and plan to buy an Amazon e-book from the Kindle app or perhaps watch a Google Play movie using Play Movies, you’re out of luck. Only Apple-developed apps are supported on iOS.

Android, however, is both Open Source and open to alternative applications. Also, Apple hasn’t ported any of its applications to Android yet, so if your music library is based on iTunes switching to Androids may require some time to get your music ready to go.

5) Timely updates

Apple beats Android easily in this matter. When Apple releases a new update or patch all supported phones get it whereas Android phones do not. It’s up to the phone manufacturer to deliver upgrades and patches like the base operating system and other programs which Google provides, unlike the iPhone, where every detail is under Apple’s control. With high-end phones, chances are higher that you will get the patches and updates whereas all the other Android smartphones may get left out. This round goes to Apple. iPhone repairs Adelaide can help with updates that you may have missed.

6) Siri or Google Assistant

When it comes to Google Assistant vs. Siri, Google Assistant takes the cake because of its superior voice interface to Google search. Google Assistant can make life simpler with Google applications, such as Google Calendar and Google Maps. Although Siri may have been first to market, it is still pretty basic. It is good for answering questions, but Google Assistant is much better at understanding follow-up questions and offering contextual answers.

7) Battery life and charging

Nowadays Android phones are also launched with nonattachable batteries. Android phones don’t need to be recharged as often as iPhones. But some people turn on many unwanted battery-draining features on their phones leading to different results. So let’s call this something of a draw, depending on the phone in hand, how you use it, and how regularly you optimize the applications.

To summarize, there isn’t a simple, one-size-fits-all answer otherwise this debate would have stand resolved. Both phones have their advantages and disadvantages. Pick one that fits your budget and needs. Daddys Phones is a leading Phone repairs Adelaide having hands-on experience with both types of phones.
