iPhone vs Android: 13 Reasons iPhone is Better in 2018
We’ll explain the reasons the iPhone is better than Android with a 2018 iPhone vs Android comparison that includes the newest iPhones and Android devices with Android 9.0 and iOS 11.
The iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus may not deliver super screen resolutions, but they hit the right notes for many buyers. Now we have the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus that add in wireless charging and upgraded cameras and the OLED iPhone X with Face ID adding to the reasons the iPhone is better than Android for many users.
iPhone competition includes the Samsung Galaxy S9 & S9+, Galaxy Note 9, Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL as well as an array of other phones. These represent a bigger challenge for Apple, but there are still places where the iPhone is clearly better than Android and iOS 11 is better than Android O and Android Pie.
You need to learn what the iPhone does better and how Apple delivers a better experience than Android to see if an iPhone is the best smartphone for you in 2018.
Use our list of reasons the iPhone is better than Android to figure out which new smartphone you should buy this year. Read our iPhone 8 Plus review to find out how this is different from the iPhone 7.

Even if you think you know which phone is best, you might be surprised to learn about all the reasons the iPhone is better than Android despite many advances from Android phones.
iPhone Apps Are First and Better Looking
Most of the popular apps are on both platforms, but many top games and apps still come to iPhone first. We’re seeing more apps come to both Android and iPhone at the same time, but there are still way more iPhone only apps that we see than Android only.
When apps are available on iPhone and Android we still often see a better design on the iPhone version than on Android. This is something that still rings true in 2018. For example, we still see some new Snapchat features and Spotify features come to iPhone before Android. We even saw this happen with better features for the Snapchat app on the iPhone X due to better face tracking. Fortnite came to the iPhone first as well.

We are also seeing major new apps come only to the iPhone with AR support. Machines is one of the blockbuster Augmented Reality games that is coming to the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X first. We’ve also seen new Pokémon Go features come first to the iPhone thanks to ARKit.
Apps are an area where the gap is closing, but the differences still exist and are noticeable. We also see Apple take better care of the App Store. Recently they purged 47,300 apps from the app store that were simply bad or abandoned.
Fast iPhone Updates for All
iPhone owners enjoy quick and regular iOS updates for the iPhone no matter what carrier they use.
Android updates take months to arrive on all the devices. After an Android device is 18 months old, you may need to wait for a new Android smartphone to get the latest software.
Apple delivers iPhone updates to devices that are three years old. Apple offers iPhone 4s iOS 9 support. It is unheard of to see support for an Android phone that old. iOS 10 is available for the iPhone 5 and iOS 12 is coming to the iPhone 5s this fall.
When you look at Android devices support ends much faster. Google promises at least two years for Nexus or Pixel devices. The Nexus 6 needs an unofficial rom for Android Pie. Google may push support farther out, but it is not a guarantee. Other Android device manufacturers don’t typically match the longevity of iOS updates.
On top of the added update support, Apple does not allow carriers to hold up the updates. As soon as the update is available from Apple it is available on every carrier.
If you really want Android Pie, you may need to simply buy a new Android phone.
Works Great with All Your Devices
If you own an iPhone, iPad and Mac your information flows smoothly from one device to the other. You can quickly sync photos to all of your devices, answer a phone call on your iPad or Mac and send text messages from your other devices. There is also support for Handoff that allows you to start a task on your iPhone and continue on your iPad or Mac.
Overall the connectivity between these devices is something Android doesn’t yet match without relying on a collection of third-party applications and services to hodgepodge together a similar feature.
Sharing a file from your iPhone to your Mac is also faster and easier thanks to AirDrop. This built-in service sends the file wirelessly directly to the Mac, even when there is no other WiFi around.
Every time we try to use Android, and we do on a regular basis, we miss how well the iPhone interacts with the MacBook and simplifies tasks we perform multiple times every day.

Your article is good but the major and best reason to buy an iPhone over anything else is because it’s an APPLE. You simply can’t go wrong. I own an iPhone 5, iPad Mini 3, MacBook Pro, iMac, and Apple TV. I would not even consider anything else, especially something from that “G…” company which I abhor. I won’t even use their search engine. Same goes for anything from that software manufacturer that, well, just call it “MS). Try calling any other manufacturer for support and see if you can understand what they are saying. I suppose I am bias toward Apple but after nearly 30 years of dealing with computers of all sorts I guess my opinion is warranted.
07/17/2015 at 2:03 pm
why people like iphones? I never understood why anyone would like to give control to another company of what you do with their device.
why force u to follow MEDIA SHARING and digital rights media? you cannot torrent on iPhone, nor transfer music and videos without ITunes or a paid online service in iOS.
I hate that Samsung s6 tried copying apple iPhone. no microsd slot and integrated battery. CMOn!

They don’t allow you to do things like torrenting and music sharing because its against the law. why on earth would you want to steal? Also SD cards are historical flawed systems of storage for phones.

Torrenting is not exactly illegal. People use torrents to download various operating systems (e.g. Windows, OS X, Linux, etc.) when the direct download speed is godawful. Downloading various legal files doesn’t mean torrenting as a whole is illegal. People only associate it as illegal because they haven’t been around the internet a whole lot.
“Also SD cards are historical flawed systems of storage for phones”
Which would explain why the most popular Android phones around the world have support for MicroSD cards. If they were TRULY flawed, then manufacturers would have ditched support for the card a long time ago. Not only that, but customers appreciate the fact that they can add an additional 200+ GBs of storage on their phone which may perform well today, but they have little to no storage left on their phone (excluding other factors). Please do some research and THINK before you attempt to argue.

It is simply the portability. I have watch ,I go to the gym. I have apple computer and I can receive my phone calls there and iMessages. It crashes less often than microsoft does. I can contact apple support, whenever I want. The other time ,the bluetooth in my iPhone did not work, I contacted tech support midnight and they were available. We could not fix the problem. They called me the next day and told me to go to the nearest store and pick up a brand new phone. One more thing, my iPhone was out of warranty for 165 days. They told me they cared about customer satisfaction. When I called microsoft in order to talk to me they wanted $250. Now, compare
10/12/2018 at 5:33 am
You can’t torrent, share films or music because that’s simply illegal and defeats the purpose of people buying music etc…
04/03/2019 at 2:02 pm
Gabe. Why are you so stupid?
12/02/2015 at 4:48 pm
You’re literally so idiotic that you can’t spell the full name of a company. Only Apple, cuz you’re an I sheep. You can go very wrong. If people were smart these days, they would understand that iPhones are unequivocally not the right choice for them. You wouldn’t recommend anything else, because it is too limited and unintelligent to use anything else. Stop trying to influence other people to buy garbage phones and devices
05/12/2016 at 8:20 pm
Why are u being a hypocrite calling someone idiotic for not knowing how to spell the company name right when some of ur sentences don’t even make sense. Apple doesn’t have any competition be used it is the best phone to get.
07/13/2016 at 3:19 pm
First of all, don’t criticize someone for calling someone else idiotic when you can’t even use proper spelling or grammar. Second, Apple is all marketing. There is nothing special about it. Android offers phones that have expandable memory (and guess who doesn’t?) and better high-speed data services. iPhones die extremely quickly, you can’t use iTunes on any other devices, whereas Android platforms are available on all devices, the picture quality on an iPhone is pathetic compared to Androids, and Apple products are majorly behind in technology. The latest update for an iPhone came out two years ago for an Android. Apple has a set array of things it can do, and you can’t customize or change that. But if you want a high-end technology phone, choose an Android. It does so much more and you can customize and change its features. I have had both an iPhone and an Android phone.
09/14/2016 at 6:56 pm
well,mam i am an android user and i would like to say that iphones are the best because when you buy an android first it will give you good performance but after one month it will start hanging and work slow and that is same with every android devices.and their are so many android malware which also affect performance. Iphones are the best, secure and stable.
09/15/2016 at 4:52 pm
Stay butthurt, loser ; )
12/04/2016 at 2:38 pm
“nothing special about it”
fastest phone ever
very good camera
looks very nice
“nothing special about it”
why do we need expandable memory on iOS? gime a few reasons for that. “better high-speed data” give me your source for all this information.
iphones die extremely quickly? how? do you even have an iphone? iphones have much better standby and screen on time with heavy usage than android.
you cant use itunes on other devices, yes, but ios wants to keep it ios exclusive because their services are one of the major selling points for them. android platforms are available everywhere, but google software is usually preferred to ios software.
pathetic picture quality? wut? iphone pictures wont lose quality when you zoom in and support much more colors than any old android camera. android cameras are very nice as well, though.
“apple are behind in technology” a lot of people say this but it’s actually quite the opposite. 3d touch was very innovative, its like a ‘right click’ for your phone.
the latest iphone update did not come out 2 years ago. you seem like you have no idea what you’re talking about and just spouting nonsense.
apple can do a lot of things without customization, but what customization do we really need? people always saying android is more customizable but never give examples, and when they do its “homescreen.” moving home screen icons around is a pretty useless feature tbh
android isnt more high end tech than iphone and i dont see how much more it does. you havent even explained how it can in your comment.
so please use common sense before spouting nonsense
02/27/2017 at 12:06 am
iPhones are by far the better phone. I’ve had android phones for most of my life but i bought an iPhone 6 about a year ago and now I have the 7 and I can’t imagine going back. Android is slow, every button you push there’s a lag before it actually opens the app or whatever you pushed. Also, every android I’ve ever had has had terrible battery life, it never lasts the full day but my iPhone almost always does. And my last point, android automatically installs like 10-20 on your phone that you cannot delete no matter how hard you try. Apple has 3-5. Yes, android has a port for SD cards, but what good is that if a large amount of your memory is made up of apps you don’t want. You’re entitled to your opinion but I advise that you get yourself an iPhone 7 and keep an open mind. I’m fairly certain you realize how much better it is
02/06/2018 at 11:23 am
Idiot, how is apple all marketing? Explain that. Who needs expandable memory? After i read that IPhones die extremely quickly, i laughed so freaking hard. You have absolutely no freaking clue what your talking about.
05/23/2016 at 4:37 pm
Not very nice. Also, Apple is just as good as Android, theres aspects that one company has over the other, and vice versa, so the best thing to do is just to test out both and find your favorite and use it because Android and Apple’s problems and advantages weigh out each other so it really just matters which one you like the most so just use the one u like and stop arguing.
08/19/2016 at 10:34 am
I prefer Android because of the coustomization it has to offer. I prefer to be able to change change almost every aspect about my phone and making it the way “I” like it, not the way Apple likes it. I like the coustomization while others find it chaotic, confusing, and would rather it be (in their eyes) simpler.

07/18/2016 at 3:43 am
That’s an interesting rather stupid mindset to have and it makes me reflect on the time I had those same views. It took me 6 years as an android user to eventually realise how inferior it is to iOS. Android is plagued with fragmentation, so much that not even customisation can save it. There should be a term that describes blindsided android followers, if there is one then I’d like to know it. iOS is solid, stable, secure and much more better looking than android – Apple pays exquisite attention to the finer details and they will continuously improve on the irritating nooks and crannies so many people mention in the comments. The best part is APPLE USERS CAN ACTUALLY BE A PART of the firmware updates and have assurance in a better OS experience overtime. I’ve had my S6 for a year and I’ve only managed to have one firmware update that took 7 months to deliver.
I can only give credit to android for the premium android devices such as my S6, until then the physicality of a device alone cannot make me shift in the near future.
I want a solid experience, not a hollow one.
08/02/2016 at 12:58 am
Your comparison of iphone with S7 is not right because in case of iphone both hardware and software are developed by Apple and in case of S7 developer of hardware is Samsung and developer of software is Google.
I use Nexus 5 phone, hardware and software both developed by Google and manufactured by LG and ipad Air2 by Apple. Both devices update periodically whenever updates are released and I am happy with both.

04/03/2019 at 2:04 pm
You moron. Apple is better. Yanno why? Because I like it. Therefore, it is much better. Idiot. Ask me before you ever comment again.
12/17/2015 at 7:15 pm
This comment, as well as this article are laughable at best. Coming from a person who owns all major Apple products but frequently bounces back and forth in the smartphone department, I don’t see how any of these actually make the iPhone “better” than android.
I would say the only point that is valid is the support Apple has from app developers. It’s pretty easy to see that apps on the iPhone can be “prettier” than apps on android with the extra animations, and quick gestures. However even that is relative, since iOS gives you security and “pretty animations” but gives of freedom and functionality in the process.
I still can’t tell you which phone is better, as that all is personal preference and I really don’t care which phone is “better”. I just want a phone that does what I want it to do without too many hiccups (which is why I’ll never buy another Samsung device).
For now, I’d say in terms of productivity, the iPhone is great if you are a person who needs iMessage, FaceTime, and the Apple ecosystem to feel comfortable doing work. While I believe most android phones will get work DONE. With the amount of third party apps available to you on the play store, multi window, Google now on tap, and other gestures. I have always felt an android is phone is more a workhorse while the iPhone is king of simplicity.

11/10/2016 at 12:48 pm
Just because he has another article doesn’t mean this one’s biased
01/30/2017 at 3:53 am
Thank you for that. This article and many commenters made me want to vomit thinking he was so biased and the sheep just followed along. I can give numerous reasons Android is a better OS, but that is not the point. However, some Android devices suck. Most of the detractors comments are true of stock Samsung devices. Samsung may be the most popular, but far from the best. They make pretty good hardware, but the software begs for rooting and custom ROMS. I am typing from a Nexus 6P, which is pure Android. Google does good with monthly updates, too. But I am using Pure Nexus, the best reason for owning a Nexus/Pixel device, with ElementalX kernel for out of this world stability, smoothness, flexibility, and battery life. Unless I use hotspot(tunneled over VPN), I only have to charge every 2 days under pretty heavy use. PN is actually updated more than Google’s stock and usually delivers security updates within a day of release, which is faster than Google often rolls it out to most users.
01/06/2016 at 2:57 pm
Why would someone else go with a product by Google, NVidia (I will come back to them), or Microsoft; over that “A…” Company (Repeat)?
The reason people would use nVidia over the AMD (god I hate AMD’s Products) GPU’s found in Mac products? They want a more powerful GPU. Apple says that their “PC’s” are better and use top-notch products. Why don’t they use the GeForce GTX 980m in the MacBook Pro? Why don’t they use Quadro cards over FirePro cards? Because Apple doesn’t know anything about Graphics. As for iMac’s I have no clue why some use an i5.
Apple products thermal throttle a lot.
Android is secure with the right Antivirus programs. It is also much more free to do what ever you want. But, because your an iSheep, you can’t process facts that favor the other side of the grass. Guess your life must be happy, getting råpēd by Apple, every year and paying thousands on eye candy.
Why use Google or Bing over Yahoo? Yahoo sucks, that’s why. Face the fact that Yahoo and other search engines are inferior to Google.
Apple products are trash and are eye candy for white girls (Starbucks and that stuff).
01/06/2016 at 5:36 pm
Now you have to bring the Nvidia/ATI war? What, the iphone/android isn’t enough for you?
Dude AMD cards are equally powerful, no matter how much you “hate them”. Why Apple chose AMD? Maybe prices, power consumption, price/performance ratio, easier to adapt to their hardware, who knows? But a company such as Apple (you can write the complete name, it won’t bite you) so adept at optimization doesn’t make these decisions lightly, they HAVE a reason, one that you *don’t know*, but that’s irrelevant.
About the i5, a reason for the apparent lower specs must be because of how streamlined and optimized the OS is, instead of being made to work with zillions of combinations of brands, boards, peripherals. So what you want in hardware to cope with the software, was made achieved with the fat-free software.
«Android is secure with the right Antivirus programs», well I guess any system is secure with the right Antivirus programs, isn’t it? but never 100%. How about a system that doesn’t need antivirus, just a little inteligence from it’s user?
Android safe… yes, keep dreaming, it’s not as the net isn’t filled with cases of security holes and breaches of android.
If you reply to my I advise you right now to not bringing ATI/Nvidia stupid nerdish arguments or sheep mentality, about mobile platforms and geekinesses like that, because I simply don’t have the patience.
P.s: «Apple products are trash and are eye candy for white girls» …. LOL… I’m trying to contain myself here… :D
04/21/2016 at 8:50 am
I love you 🙌🏼 (apparently I am a white girl who loves Apple and Starbucks… I’m more of a Costa girl myself)
05/23/2016 at 4:42 pm
Its based on opinion, Apple and Android are like XBox and PS4, they have advantages over each other and problems of their own, nothing is gained over arguing about it because recently Android has caught up to Apple so now its just up to personal preference because they are pretty much at the same level right now.
07/15/2016 at 10:45 pm
why does everyone write a full on report about their opinion this is ridiculous

10/06/2016 at 7:05 am
Amazing, almost all whats written in the article is wrong.
More apps with faster updates??? How can it be if 85 percent of the market is Android, and it much more easier to write an app to Android? It’s not making any sense and wrong.
Also other things like sharing things and integration compared to Apple products only.
Almost every line in this article is not right.
12/12/2016 at 2:26 pm
LOL, thank you for making me 100℅ sure that Android is way better than newest IOS. Your arguments are so poor and naive :). The only thing youve got right is the SD expansion, but it is not any issue at all :). Thank you, my hero :)
12/15/2016 at 1:16 am
You are so dangerously biased towards Apple that some of your words make so sense and are outright stupid. I have no problems with you choosing an apple product but lol. You don’t use Google search engine? Then you are missing out. Their search engine is still the best and most reliable and miles ahead of other search engine options. Google Maps way better than Apple Maps. Every tiny feature Apple introduces in the new version of IOS, Google had it in android 2 years back. I myself love some Apple products and appreciate the high standards of quality they incorporate in their products but please don’t even compare Apple with Google. Apple just makes iphones, macbook and some fancy toys. Google makes much much more and is the spearhead of IT innovation today. Be a fanboy but don’t be an idiot.

Yes, you’re right. People just buy apple because of the name “apple” is in the title. How about a better front camera? Samsung. More customizability? Samsung.

I love iPhones if they are smal like the iPhone 4 32 GB & iPhone 5s 64 GB which I got both and still using th 5s I don’t need $900 to $1,000 iPhone the camera I don’t give crap about because I don’t take photos I collect Anime photos I have had two android phones but the batteries just don’t last only problem with Apple apps they update to much other than that it’s excellent product so are Android but now the Apple phone are to big just like their android competitors I don’t need carry around iPad
06/23/2015 at 9:55 am
Some of these reasons for being better than Android phones are oxymoronic. An extended warranty and readily available Apple Stores suggest that the iPhone is prone to bugs and damage. I will stick with my G3 because I know if I drop it it won’t shatter and I won’t have to give more money to Apple either for a case and/or a screen fix. There is a reason there aren’t Android stores out there. Because their phones don’t nearly have as many issues in my opinion. Consider Chevrolet and Honda. The Honda will last and is just as nice if not nicer than the Chevy, which will not last nearly as long and will force loyal customers to buy yet another Chevy.
07/27/2016 at 4:32 pm
I would love to hear your comment now about your G3. Android stores are not because android companies dont give a f.ck about costumers, they just improve SPECS SPECS AND SPECS but where is NO improving quality. Why for example iphone 12 megapixel camera can beat sony xperia 23 megapixel camera, why iphone 1500 mah battery last longer than lg 3000mah, why fingerprint on iphone works much better than samsungs? And whats a practical difference between 640p vs 2k smartphone screen? Damn the real sheeps dont understand what apple cares about costumers and they stay at same screen resolutions because they just dont need to improve screens, android companies just keep adding numbers on specs. But where is quality improvment? You say iphone works better because of lower resolution screens, but than why androids keep improving resolutions but forget about older android users? I am ex samsung and LG user, rubbish costumer services, if android die than i must wait couple weeks for replacment, if somethin happen with iphone i know where is apple store and dealing with them in same day. Price stays high for iphone for a real reason. Iphone is not about SPECS, its about quality in every aspect.
09/30/2016 at 2:44 am
The issue with iPhones that I hated was that the only way you could fix any glitch that would inevitably crop up is by factory resetting the phone each and every time. It’s such an annoying and time consuming process having to set everything back up again. When I made the switch to Android I was really impressed by how stable and self contained it was. Whenever there was a glitch it was limited to that particular app and you could simply reinstall it and it’d be fixed. I’ve never encountered any systemwide issues such as the iPhone misc storage bug that would happen to me all the time with the 6s. Apple does a great job hiding all of its glitches by simply not providing any prompts. Apps just disappear when they crash. It’s terrible. I know a lot of people with the misc storage bug to this day and don’t know it. They just think they’re out of space all the time because they need a new phone..
09/30/2016 at 2:49 am
I lol’d at how much superior the author thought the lightning cable was because it was reversible. You have a fifty fifty chance at it if you do it blindly but most cables have a dimple on top to make sure you get it even time. It’s the most versatile cable, it’s simple, affordable and it just works. No one really has a hard time plugging them in, that was an invented problem.

I’m a long time android user, but I thought about switching to iPhone on my last upgrade. Some of these were acceptable reasons, but most were not. My wife is using an iPhone 6, and I have the Galaxy S6 edge. We both agree that my phone is far superior in terms of speed and screen resolution, but her camera, even being spec-deficient to my Android, seems as good as, or even better somehow. I like your point on the updates all rolling out at once, but almost every other “point” you made about iPhone being better boils down to one thing: lots of your friends have iPhones. That’s it. That’s the selling point, and the basis of this article.
“iPhone apps look better.” – That’s completely relative. Lots of apps do look better, but they generally are paid apps that are free in the Play Store.
“Works for all your devices” – So what? I thought this was a phone article. Android works with all your crap too.
“No Carrier bundled apps” – I dont know how that’s a selling point, but okay, you win. Bloatware is an issue on android.
“Sharing to other iPhones”/”Better resell” – Your friends all have them, so you should too. Then you can sell them to other friends who have older ones and make more money. Ridiculous. Yeah, you get a few more bucks for them, so that means you should have an inferior phone? Who buys a phone because of resale value? Preposterous.
“Lightning cable is miles better” – My S6 charges from nothing to 40% in 10 minutes. iPhone can’t do that. I understand that the cable may be good, but “miles better” is a stretch.
“Apple Stores” – So? I don’t even understand how this is a point in your article. Go to best buy, it’s the same crap.
“Touch ID”/”Headphone controls” – Those both work flawlessly on a good number of high end android devices as well.
“iMessage, Facetime, blah blah” / “Share apps easily” – All your friends have these, so you should too, or they’ll laugh at you.
“Siri works better than Google Now” – Google Now isn’t Siri. That shouldn’t be a comparison. It’s not trying to be Siri. It’s a voice search, and that’s it. Siri works, but it doesnt work “better” than anything else, because there’s nothing to compare it to. If you like having Siri, good.
“Notifications are better” – No, they’re not. Android’s notifications work exactly the same.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying iPhone isn’t better, I’m just saying you haven’t proven that it is here in the slightest. Both OS’s are very well made, and the playing field is far more level than any avid IOS or Android user wants to admit.

Excellent comment. I totally agree with you.
08/07/2015 at 5:04 am
DONT throw away your s6 edge… get an iphone but if you can use them interchangeably
07/15/2016 at 10:51 pm
lol hi sam
10/09/2015 at 12:35 pm
I disagree. Bloatware is not really a problem on Android; any respectable company will only install commonly used and necessary apps like the Play Store and Gmail. If you are buying a phone that will leave your wallet intact (and still deliver better specs in every single measurable way than an iPhone 6, such as the lenovo k3 note) from a less known company which may allow bloatware, you can easily root the phone and uninstall it. I do agree with your other points, though!
05/27/2016 at 7:55 am
Phinfankid you are completely right. I agree with everything you said. You are probably the only logical person who has commented so far. Also the iPhones storage is just a scam to keep people paying and buying more storage. Unfortunately the Samsung Galaxy s6 also removed the microsd slot, but luckily Samsung got it sh*t together with the Samsung s7, which in my opinion is the best phone.
07/12/2016 at 12:11 am
You really explained the situation very well! Loved it.
07/09/2015 at 5:07 pm
This article compares Apples to apples. Your references to Android are focused towards Samsung (you know the company that makes the screen, processor, RAM, and ROM in most Apple devices). Compared to a more vanilla Android experience, Apple blows. My $200 Zenfone 2 is better than any fruity phone at a third of the cost. With Apple, you pay more for less, but get a pointless logo.
07/10/2015 at 9:06 pm
What about Apples different charger cords? Droids micro USB cords work with any other Android device. In fact, pretty much all phones but apple use it. They want you to need to buy new chargers more often. Apples are streamlined fads also, just like every product they’ve ever released. Yeah, cause being “cool” means getting the same more expensive products all the other rich kids got.
07/30/2015 at 3:55 am
I had both and I don’t agree with this article. I prefer Android phones over Iphones. I think Apple have better computers, but not better cell phones.

03/06/2016 at 8:09 am
Keep dreaming….Apple has better computers you serious?
You can do a lot of stuff on Windows pcs while Mac struggles to do one stuff….At least it’s stable and easy to use through…But seriously it’s overpriced shit…You can get almost awesome gaming laptops for the price of a MacBook Air.
In fact, iPhone is better than android….Because the mobile era is another thing, it’s called mobile for a reason. It should be easy to use and quick. That’s why Apple wins at this point…Come on get real men you wanna play GTA V on your mobile? No for sure. Apps are even better (which surprises me why it isn’t the same for a Mac vs Windows) iPhone’s are faster than most android phones….But if you compare it to stock original android phones, the iPhone still beats them but not as much as other android phones. Because unfourtantely Google didn’t know how to configure Linux properly but i bet you if it does…The iOS faster than android is a history….Linux is ultra-powerful and that’s why most of the world super computers use it…Because you can tweak it the way you like and you will get an extremely faster performance than Windows and Mac. But Google couldn’t handle it I guess….Even the Java language is much faster in terms of processing but I’m still surpsised why iOS apps are still faster….It’s just another replica of Nokia’s fault with Symbian (Nokia never built a stable Eco system for it until it’s near to death period, which led the CEO to get rid of Symbian because it takes years to built an eco system)
05/19/2016 at 9:44 am
Right off the bat i can tell you are a little kid who just bought a samsung and is butt hurt you made the wrong choice, “struggles to do one stuff” he also pays great attention in class shown by how grammatically correct this is (as i was writing this I found this… “The iOS faster than android is a history” WHO TEACHES THIS KID I NEED TO COMPLAIN)!
08/04/2015 at 12:36 pm
Poorly written article bringing in irrelevant points and downright false information. Take your “works great with all your devices” section for an example. I use an android phone and an apple computer, and the two devices are 100% compatible with no need for a “third-party application” or service. Completely untrue information in this section. Also I have texts and all the regular online messaging apps I use from both devices well synced. All data, photos, contacts, music, etc from my phone are stored in a cloud service and attainable through my mac computer and my (android) phone.
Also your first section “iPhone Apps Are First and Better Looking” contradicts itself.
07/06/2016 at 6:43 am
My iPhones have NEVER worked great with my PC laptop. NEVER. And the people in the store aren’t much help either. I’ve wasted hours in there. So I don’t know who the person who wrote this article talked to, but my experience has been awful with compatibility between iPhone and PC. In fact, it’s the main reason I’ll never buy another iPhone.
08/10/2015 at 11:11 am
Really? Here are 10 reasons you have apples for brains:
Android is free, Google drive storage is FREE. 15 gig of files, unlimited photos!
Androids voice recognition is WAY better, try a comparison, Siri is like a nagging wife who can’t get it right.
Android phones have wireless charging!
Android phones built in payment that works everywhere. Not at 3% of stores like Apple payment.
Android phone MULTITASK, thats right you can run a dozen apps at the same time while talking.
Android phones have sizable widgets, so you have live streaming info on your home screen.
Android phones are available in endless formats, not like the communist way “everyone has the same”.
Android phones PLAY ALL FILES, iphones only play Mp3’s from itunes etc etc pain in the Apple.
Android phones have rapid charging, 10 min = 4 hours of use.
Android phones are available with 2 days of battery.
I could go on and on but your Apple brain will not listen anyways. You probably have a really nice typewriter that you show off the lack of it needing toner or electricity.
There is a reason Android is about 82% of the market and Apple has fallen from 33 to about 12%…
In fact the remaining iphone users I know all run Google everything on their iphone anyways, why not get the best hardware too.
I look at everything I can and see things for how they are, then I buy the best I can find, if you do the same you will love your new Galaxy S6 8^ )
12/13/2015 at 9:30 am
I tried, but stop reading after the «iphones only play Mp3’s from itunes etc etc pain in the Apple.» Just this BS of a sentence already has 2 lies in it. Which shows how much you know what you’re talking about.
08/28/2015 at 1:53 am

I like Android though but it seems like iPhone is much more reliable and good quality when it comes to their phones. This site shows the majority: https://ninki.co/android-vs-iphone
09/03/2015 at 1:39 am
Sorry, but that’s it? Honestly, these are more like 15 reasons why an iPhone user should switch to android as soon as possible. Most testify to the fact that Apple product users are chained together under the apple tree, sustaining themselves on apples only. On top of that they are forced to watch android user eat happily from all the trees in the garden, even apples trees, even inventing fruits of their own.

09/03/2015 at 10:57 pm
One of the worst article I ever read. And childish comparison .
09/16/2015 at 7:32 pm
I can say something here because I own and use both iPhone 6 Plus and a Samusng Galaxy S6 edge equally everyday. So I think I am in a position to give a fair judgement …or at least decide what works better for me. I have changed over from iPhone as my default device to S6 edge and back to iPhone few times. But I find myself using iPhone 6 Plus more often than S6 Edge…because of these reasons
1. Smartphone is smart because of quality apps. I always found iOS apps looking neater, working smoother and more consistent compared to Android Apps. Just to quote an example…Adobe acrobat reader which i made default app to open PDF files….is not able to open files since last two days all of a sudden and reporting error. Everything is updated but still doesn’t work somehow. But works fine with iOS.
2. Screen of iPhone is marginally inferior to my S6 edge which is stunning. But I don’t hold them near my nose and try noticing pixels. From a practical point of view iPhone screen is absolutely fine.
3. In spite of inferior hardware specs on paper, I can’t deny iPhone user interface is more fluid and smooth. Thats what makes the experience more pleasant for me.
4. iPhone 6s is already launched…I am not upgrading. But know what? Last night iOS9 update was available to my phone. I have already updated to same. Isn’t that amazing? I can’t help comparing my Galaxy note 4, my near stock android Motorola droid turbo.. etc..which haven’t received even 5.1.1 Lollipop when Android Marshmallow is about to be launched in a month. Sad. This alone is enough for me to stick to iPhone as my default device.
5. I havent noticed parallels for some Apps in Android (Drafts, Soulver etc). Which I learnt to use often and liked. I am a fan of some automation apps like Tasker on android which doesnt have an iOS equivalent. But as of now my use of same is less.
6. I guess iOS is bit more secure compared to android against virus attacks and hacking. it IS something important to me in this era of mobile banking and when we keep so much data on Google drive and One Note etc. and hey…Google has made most of its apps available to iOS.
I agree my S6 edge is superior in Camera department and pictures look very good. Also usage of widgets is better in android. But after using both OS since last 3-4 years, I am sticking with iPhone as my default and S6 edge for miscellany and photos. This is what works for me. I know others have other reasons to stick to any one OS. I have best of both worlds now but can’t help saying one is better than other at present.
12/02/2015 at 4:38 pm
Updates are an invalid point, because the newest version of iOS isn’t as good as a 2 three year old version of Android
12/02/2015 at 5:03 pm
I don’t agree with you there. Updates are important. They optimise the software, remove bugs and important to plug security issues. Of course Google releases them but only nexus customers get it. Other manufacturers don’t release it in time. Tell me now how many handsets are going to get Marshmallow and when????
04/25/2016 at 7:17 pm
So which is less complicated for the over-50 me who is good with words but not pictures? I had to ask a young person what all those little dots and waves, etc., meant on my Ipod Touch. I really miss words, but I realize I am alone in that. Is a Samsung any easier to navigate for (duhhh…) me?
07/11/2016 at 9:14 am
If you are over 50 you should definitely stick with Apple
1. it is extremely easy to use
2. you can do many tasks without even doing anything, but simply telling your phone to wake you up at 5am, or to remind you to take your pills when you get home
3. you can change the text size and icon size to accommodate your eye-sight
4. you can ask any teenager to help you organize the icons into more intuitive way
Microsoft Windows phones are rich on words, but while it would satisfy your need for everything being written – the phone will be difficult to use, and will still contain many icons.
So, go with Apple, even an older 16GB model, will still be fully supported, and will work perfectly well, do not get 64GB version, you wont need all that memory.
07/16/2016 at 12:20 am
but apple is expensive
08/25/2016 at 5:59 am
with android it is much easier to use… you can tell your phone to set and alarm….you can change the text size
01/10/2017 at 1:04 pm
Android is an absurd ecosystem, the UI is very hard to even remember, iOS is better due to the simplicity of the UI. OP was right about iPhones being easy, I use one because android is hard to use. Maybe you should get an iPhone, it’s 5x faster than every android phone in the world and you’ll get a good one on eBay for like $200! Why do you think Google is better on iOS than on android. lel, Android is a joke OS and should be defunct!
10/15/2015 at 5:17 pm
I´ve been an iPhone user for 2 years, recently I bought an Android phone to verify if really Android is superior… After 2 months of testing it, I sell the Android and bought an iPhone 6…
This do not prove that iPhone is better, but for my needs, iPhone is totally superior…
Android is good, everything is cheap but is not an stable OS…
Yes you can have all personalize, but for what? I´m not a teenager anymore so whats the point to have all personalized and change it every week?
By the way the output of the sound of the iPhone is really more superior than the output of any Android phone
With an iPhone (in music business) is way better you can control lights, console really simple with iPhone and all tech for music is much more easy to sync and to handled on an iPhone… Music business in a MAC is much much easier
I love iPhone and I would not change it anymore
Like I said I´m not saying iPhone is better for everyone but for my needs yes it is
12/02/2015 at 4:44 pm
Wow! You’re actually dumber than every other I sheep here. IPhone has good sound? Better than any Android? Hahahahahahaha! Have you even seen an HTC One phone? Best speakers and any phone! Ever. IPhone speaker is tinny garbage. The S6 even has the same placement, but sounds much better. Seriously, Google HTC One m8 or m9. Cm8 literally got the top phone of 2014, and everyone mention how good the speakers work. I also got first place cuz it was vastly superior to any iPhone. Better software, better design, better screen, etc
12/02/2015 at 4:45 pm
And please specify what Android phone it was. Otherwise I’ll assume you’re lying because there are so many and you can’t name one. Or you got a cheaper old one. Android high end phones are very stable. Look it up. They’re way more stable than iOS
01/30/2017 at 5:57 am
Signed, someone who has never used Viper4Android. Seriously, I can’t stomach the sound output of very many phones without it. Only a few Androids that have nice customized audio processing(like the LG V20) and no iPhones or Windows phones. Many of the rest of Androids can use this superior sound mod. I have a Nexus 6P with Pure Nexus and ElementalX kernel, which has nice front firing speakers, better than iPhones. V4A gives audio processing to match. Not available on iPhones or Windows Phones.
10/17/2015 at 10:03 am
Why r u only talking about iphone 6plus,which is much costlier than androide same feature phones, there are some other iphones had launched by apple like iPhone5, 5s,5c i compare this phones whith 20000 rs android phones where battery of iphones so worst and camera and no memory slot, nevertheless this iphones have more cost than android phones.
10/19/2015 at 9:26 am
LOL you will not get confused using a LIGHTNING cable? are you kidding me?????????
Does this mean that it is designed for dumb people who constantly flip the usb port? is this the main reason! why apple cant for some reason jussssssssssssssssst go with the flowwwwwwwwwwwwwww and use a normal USB port that makes it easier for all humans in the world to share chargers?
Dude, i use both systems and i can point out one thing better that most people usually ignore, my Father is blind, he uses an iPhone because tbh the Voice-over mode for iPhone is the best ive seen and used so far.
Nothing much..im still happier with an Android.
10/25/2015 at 5:58 am
There’s no Denying android ports are a p.i.t.a.
11/04/2015 at 6:35 pm
Lol i laughed my ass off as soon as they said “quick updates” and it showed a 904mb update. Its like we intentionally left out carrier costs, the limited gb storage that iphones have
And dont even get me started on “no company bundled apps”. Do you know how much tracking, data mining even occurs with an iphone? Fingerprint bypass? Are u srs?
The iphone is for the general public who doesnt know any better just following ignorantly what is popular culture.
Android = Professional industry
Iphone= uneducated general public facade
07/11/2016 at 9:21 am
yeah, tell that to all my banker friends who make millions and choose Apple to be the secure choice for the data exchange and storage, go “personalize” your phone, show them all how individual you are, myspace was definitely better than stupid facebook where you cannot “personalize,” so ignorant right?

Iphone is better for their OS. That’s it. Fine tuned OS for THEIR phone. NOT AN OS FOR MANY PHONES!!!
01/08/2016 at 6:01 am
I use an iPhone. Everyone I know in business uses an iPhone. Everyone I know that has money, taste and style uses an iPhone. All the successful people I know use an iPhone. The only credible alternative in business to an iPhone would be a BlackBerry running BB10. Android devices are for the unemployed and vagrants. Thankfully I don’t know anyone with an Android phone. I don’t want to either! Please only contact me if you use an iPhone and have a job / home. I don’t want be associated with anyone that uses an Android. It would make me look bad. Thanks.
03/03/2016 at 5:33 pm
The fact that u say “Android devices are for the unemployed and vagrants”, just ticks me off. You are what I like to call a dumb ass like every kid I know. You only choose an Iphone because every one else has an Iphone, if not you would of picked android and said Iphones suck, you also don’t even know how technology works bitch, so I would not be talking because there are far more android devices with better specs, and fyi i’m a kid obviously i’m not employed.
04/22/2016 at 10:44 am
Well then maybe you didnt know what a high end android phone is.. Poor you.
05/21/2016 at 7:16 am
This post is what makes you look bad.
05/21/2016 at 7:51 am
Also, aside from your arrogance making you look bad, you have got to be kidding about BlackBerry. I carried the Z10 now carry the Passport with BB10. I only have it because my company prefers BB’s security. But as far as fuctionality, it’s like working with bear skins and stone knives compared to iPhone or Android. The lack of apps and limited integration with other devices is stifling. That’s why I carry a separate personal phone. It’s also why BB is abandoning BB10 and switching to an Android platform. So are you going to cast off your somewhat acceptable friends who carry BlackBerry when their platform becomes Android? They better run out and get an iPhone when that happens so they can still be honored to be deemed worthy of your friendship.
07/11/2016 at 9:35 am
1. Android they switch to is FULLY custom and has all google services BLOCKED
2. This is the reason why companies are abandoning BlackBerry due to high maintenance costs and instead make private applications for iPhones which you can only download using a special code, a secure application within a secure platform, cheaper to maintain, more convenient for an employee to use.
I completely agree with Bob, Androids are for 12 year olds and vagrants, the paper specs of Androids (factually and historically) are not an indicator of how they perform. And the fact that you think that you are smarter than a mass of hard working high ranking professionals, and that you need to show them all how “individual” you are by always “personalizing” your phone – just shows you are a fool and have nothing to do but to play with yourself on your phone like a kid, I bet you are one of those people who thinks wearing a watch is stupid and unmanly because you have a clock on your phone.
07/16/2016 at 12:55 am
ur insulting me cos im twelve so dont try piggy
01/30/2017 at 6:08 am
You guys keep proving how Apple markets to ignorant people with a credit card. Reason many companies don’t use Android is because of the differences in OS customization from device to device and manufacturer to manufacturer. That can be a nightmare for testing in house apps. Nothing to do with security. My company uses Android tablets, but all the same kind. Only point you are right about is specs don’t reflect performance. Nexus/Pixel devices have good specs, not the best, but just try finding a faster Android or iPhone, for that matter. Why? Stock Android that hasn’t been bastardized.
01/17/2016 at 5:48 pm
I use an iPhone, but custom built my own PC. I don’t like Android phones (had a Samsung galaxy for a year before switching back) but I also don’t like Apple computers. Honestly? What people buy is a matter of taste. I will never understand this “MUH PHONE IS SUPERIOR!!1” nonsense. Get over it. People like what they like.

This article is so immature and stupid. Seriously, apps look better? You couldn’t even come up with a better reason?? I can literally break this article point by point. I would just like to say one thing though as a rebuttal,
A NEXUS too receives the ota updates.
An iPhone 64gb on contract costs almost the same as a carrier free nexus. I am a galaxy s7 user and the screen quality is maybe 2 generations over the iphone. As for the notifications, I prefer android’s iteration way more than apples. And about the cables, except the s7, all flagships use USB type c
Samsung compensates with wireless charging.
The battery life on a nexus or an s7 edge is way superior than the iPhone. And hangout video quality is as good as facetious. Also I like the fact that you don’t need to get out of hangouts to make a video call. In iphone you can usee iMessage but then to make a video call you need to get out and go to facetime. I get to play with manual controls on my camera which iphone doesn’t permit.
I can literally go all day long about this.
Just one actual good point about iphone you could have mentioned instead of the trash is that it has a stronger graphic processor that but by a small margin.

One more thing. You mentioned sharing. Do you feel ashamed that you cannot share media via Bluetooth?? The most basic mode of sharing? Talking about airdrop please use wifi direct once. Or nfc sharing.
03/28/2016 at 2:06 am
Basically what this article is saying is: “use iPhone instead of Android – it’s more easy to use if you’re an idiot!”… lol
There isn’t even one reason of those in the article that is 100% true… and almost all of them are complete crap! I mean come on – even monkey can plug MicroUSB and it is “a must” standard in Europa for instance anyway. Let alone that the future is in the wireless charging… And who today is NOT using Viber or WhatsApp? Who needs another messenger? I can continue, but don’t see point in that – the articles like this is obviously paid one. But sooner or later it will be clear at the end – the open environment will always be above the close one, because it is more close to the people! Cheers!

I’m not sure I get why the headphones are supposed to be a distinctive selling point. My GS5 came with headphones that offer the same control options. They didn’t last, because we have cats, but that’s beside the point.

A few years ago my wife bought me an iPhone after I discarded my Symbian phone. Anyway I started to use this and found out in dismay that I have to have all products to live . Windows used to crash if I connect my iPhone…….it does not like it. Couldn’t do anything without iTunes. Can’t see anything on the phone while connected to Windows except photo. Couldn’t copy my videos at all.
Then the account with and once you are inside the prisoners you are under arrest until proven innocent. Luckily the Sony Z1 appeared and decided to get one. In two days I found life with this phone by far easier than that silly apple I was using……..I just gave to a friend without asking for any cash. Good riddance….. I got rid of it at last and never again……….. is crop.

There are ZERO good equalizer apps on iOS, the frequent updates take up all your storage, music quality is horrible, the cameras are never good, I’ve taken better looking photos off a moto G, battery lasts nowhere near as long as an androids and takes much longer to charge, android can turn on instantly whereas an iOS device takes like half an hour to turn on if it’s died, an iPhone will shatter if you throw it at a brick wall, an android will bounce back at you, apple devices cost less than $50 to manufacture, you get charged $1000 for a closed source pile of shit, you might as well go burn a $1000

I’m in my 50’s and I have an Android. It’s a Huawei, nice BIG screen I guess they call a Phablet. My younger son has an iPhone 6 plus. I decided to try an iPhone 5s just to see what it’s like. I have 30 days to check it out. So far, the ONLY thing see is the slow motion camera that’s cool and maybe some cuter emogies …I think they’re called. Otherwise….. I’m so far not impressed. My Huawei Android is 16g the iPhone 5s is 16g. The Huawei was I think $200 and the 5s $160 with its VERY tiny screen. My son has a 6 plus and 64g and that would cost me $650 or maybe it’s $650 for the6 plus 16g. Anyway…. Lots MORE MONEY. I guess if you have a lot of music… It’s better but I just have Lots of pictures. I like my sd card for these. I don’t know all the techy stuff and I don’t do Twitter or FaceTime or sharing pics except Facebook and text. I thought maybe some apps would be cooler but so far… I’m not impressed with the iPhone at all. Just my opinion.

I knew this article was a joke when his very first reason is “Snapchat looks prettier on iPhone”.
And you’re listing reasons why apple is different, not better.
04/21/2016 at 1:52 am
Apple optimises the iPhone’s hardware and software. The iOS Is custom built for and iPhone but the android softwares are not built for any particular device or hardware so optimisation is nog as good as in an Apple device.
It not about specs the camera which shas more megapixels cannot alone deliver better pictures , a processor with more cores and greater clock speed can not alone give better performence until it utilises the most of it. So as Apple builds it products to its own requirements and deliver better products than android phones.
An iPhone has better quality of internals as well as the body and feels premium than its competitors so that’s why an iPhone is an iPhone.

Currently on my iPhone 6s+, sobbing as I type this.
I’ve just got through longingly browsing Google’s Playstore, seeing all the recent updates of my favorite apps and hidden gems that the Apple Store just cannot compete with. Android has some seriously dedicated developers, and I’ve always admired them and even began looking into Android app development. That is…
Until I switched over to iPhone several months ago after being a dedicated Android user. I will always be Team Android, hands down. I had a rooted Nexus 5, which means I’m all about customizability, design, testing, flexibility, and freedom. Then I decided I wanted to try something new—FaceTime, great camera, updated social apps like snapchat…you know, the basics.
Biggest. Mistake. Ever. Switching over to Apple feels like I’m using a flip phone.
Now I’m trying to decide if I should just switch back, or keep this iPhone as a means of communication (don’t know if I’m willing to give up FaceTime with family and friends) and have an Android for all the things I miss.
04/27/2016 at 6:26 am
I just giggle at these articles. Ok Iphone kids, my phone has a webhost, tftp server, a windows deploy share with every iteration of windows going back to w2000, an SMB client, FTP client and host, Tftp server, wi-fi signal scanner, packet sniffer(nmap), a high frequency oscilloscope, a bluetooth HID remote that controls anything bluetooth, a linux/android debugger, point of sale and inventory tracking software(apple has it too but not complete on the phone), and at will I can change my MAC and spoof other phone’s IDs. My phone is a half decade old S2. So I guess if you plan on propping up a desk buy an Iphone, for everyone else that has work to do either grab a toolkit full of different things or just grab your android phone.

I don’t understand why it is all Android users say that iPhone users are sheep and that they use an iPhone because everyone else uses an iPhone. The iPhone has less than 20% market share world wide. That means less than 1 in 5 smartphone users have an iPhone. It seems to me going with the herd is more of an Android thing than an iOS thing. Just saying…
05/21/2016 at 8:18 am
I think it is more because a lot of iPhone users seem cultic. I honestly think iPhone is a high quality product. But I really like high end Androids as well. However, I know people who use only Apple products and make little comments here and there about how inferior ALL Androids are. In that way I think they are like sheep because they have bought into this notion that their are no good Androids and they are operating on a higher plan than non-iPhone users.
05/23/2016 at 5:18 am
Agreed. Probably because in the beginning people lined up outside of stores to get the latest and greatest iphone. It’s great hardware, but I can’t get used to a single button. Plus iphones seem to have a higher resale value. I don’t know. I do like how apple updates their devices in a timely manner and no bloatware, etc. I think Android is getting there, but unless it’s a nexus, updates are all over the place. I want the screen of a Samsung, build of an HTC with the battery life of my droid turbo, a headphone jack at the bottom of the phone instead of the top and I would be in heaven.
Plus everyone I know say is that a Galaxy? So people in my area associate anything android as a Galaxy. Great marketing by Sammy, but perception becomes reality sometimes.
05/21/2016 at 8:20 am
Meant to say plane, not plan. ☺
01/30/2017 at 6:43 am
Yup, it is about the Apple cult and the attitude that you are unwashed and not worthy if you use an Android. The attitude you must be broke, homeless, etc. My Android costs as much as a lower range current iPhone and can do way more. Here in the US, they have much greater market share, unfortunately.
04/28/2016 at 6:59 pm
iphone has nothing on android. They have a good camera but that is about it. isheep all butthurt because android is taking over the world.
04/30/2016 at 6:42 am
So far all my favourite android apps were not available on ios, plus a lot of apps are a minimum of 10 cent cheaper on gpl than on apple app store. I also find it totally ridiculous that iphones need to be jailbroken to undergo any form of customization. Plus who wants fast updates at the expense of severe bugs, them slowing down stuff even more and getting a crappy operating system that hasnt changed since 5 years. Iphones are for people that only use their phones to txt and make calls. ps. I have a $20 alcatel phone and wouldnt ever trade it for an iphone. Buy what you like, but the points on this website are the worst I have ever seen. As far as I know you cant even use iphones to transfer files other than audio and photos to and from macs/pc’s. Apple phones are overpriced by like $500 dollars just because they have a flashy logo which they stole from the beatles.
05/05/2016 at 1:15 pm
I love my android devices. Have I had problems. Yes. More than my wife’s iphone? Definitely. But I tinker with it a lot more than her iphone. I transfer files back and forth from a computer a lot easier with my device. Yes using third party apps but it’s still easier. I have all my music in google play, but use itunes (whole family uses ipods) so I just sync up that to google music and playlists as well.
Each device has it’s pros and cons. I have used a rooted tablet to get pure android (didn’t like it) and have an ipad 2 which I love. It’s about choice and I like that we have it.
Two points I agree with the author about:
Timely updates and bloatware. HTC is bucking the trend to stay afloat by addressing this.
Wireless charging is not worth it yet. I much prefer quick charging and new devices starting to roll out with usb-c.
05/07/2016 at 6:40 am
The article and ensuing comments are a joke. This is what The internet has come to now days. Let me be clear, I have years and years of experience with Android, IOS, Windows & Linux. I have every certification and more hours logged on to these then most of you. Now that we have established my far superior ability to actually comment here goes.
First of all, the people on this blog and on others like it simply cannot help the fact that more people love iphone than android, period. So they make nasty little comments because they are frustrated that in reality they couldnt influence people in high school and they aren’t able to now. Second the android users who get angry at Apple users simply appear to only be mad because they don’t have an iphone them selves.
Let me be clear I have Windows and android and iOS. Iphone for the nomal every day user is PERFECT! Let them be! The android is perfect for more shady people who want to be power users an anarchists or some how feel like they are breaking the law or the rules. That is how android feels and that’s the base line of the os.
I currently have an android because I can be one of those more shady people who like to go against the grain. But I don’t like android. Who the he’ll wants to root a phone? Who wants to spend hours on doing something? Not I! It takes me 10 minutes to jail break an Apple as and BAM I’m a super users with a linux based system and am sitting with a very powerful device! They all being said I have an android bc of expandable memory, an IR blaster, and a few other small features. When Apple steps up the game with these I will switch to Apple. Here is one reason why. What is a smart device? It is an item created to make your life as a human eaiser. Apple does that by leaps and bounds! The phone thinks of you like a loyal old dog and wants to do nothing more than serve your every whim. I can tell you the iphone holds up better, know why? Ever had to fix your mom or dads PC? And you think to your self wth are they doing with this thing. We never hear that issue out of iphone. So really is a beast just for that reason alone simply bc the general population can break them by doing stupid stuff.
Now on to adress some other stupid comments for people who pretend they are SO smart.
Windows is better than a Mac ios! Hum WRONG! Know why? Windows is a dos based crap system with a gui created for the average consumer to use a device. It’s not a damn computer it’s a pretty device to help you numb skulls use paint and word or get on the internet. What is my point now!! Oh yet MAC IOS is FAR superior at least for anyone who actually knows how to use Linux which by the way was and still is the base os on which all other smart software was and still is created. So you pretty little Windows fanboy users, please get a grip because until you stop drooling over your poster size photo of Bill gates and actually learn Linux you know nothing about computing.
The really dumb person who commented about Honda’s vs Chevys! Hahaha seriously though? You also probably know nothing right? Honda and GM use the exact same part manufactures which in turn makes both cars CRAP! Research before you comment.
Go get what ever phone you want and fanboys of each need to get a grip!
05/29/2016 at 1:57 am
Just to clarify a few things for the “people who pretend they re SO smart”
Windows has been detached from DOS since windows 2000, It maintains compatibility by running an DOS virtual machine on the NT Kernel.
Not all systems are based on Linux, Linux is based on Unix, Mac OS (and IOS) is largely based on BSD which is a variant of UNIX, The Windows Micro-kernel is also partly based on UNIX.
For someone who has “years and years of experience with Android, IOS, Windows & Linux.” and “every certification and more hours logged on to these then most of you” you are spreading a lot of misinformation.
I personally own all apple products, but have and still use the other platforms, They all have their advantages and downfalls. And although I use a Mac, Ipad and Iphone predominantly I still have moments of frustration when I miss windows, android and linux for one reason or another.

You’re All Phaat And Stoopid!
05/24/2016 at 8:14 am
apple is just better in very way …. battery , faster processor , better sound quality , the most clear screen and best off is security . just being honest .
Samsung along with android are pure rubbish ….!!!!!! I have had android and thanks GOD that I changed cause I realised what is not worth it ……. apple is also better quality you now how it is cause if you drop the phone and the screen cracks that’s actually means its glass where android and sunsung is plastic and ya they look glass I guarantee its a platic/glass . it doesn’t matter if you think android is better because soon Samsung will die out and another android company will take there place then thrive and then fail just like all android companies where as apple is only apple they are actually unique thank goodness there’s at least one cellphone company that is unique !!!.
sorry android and Samsung but soon your time will come to a end as no android company will last because they all the same……!!!!!!!! apple you WILL THRIVE AND WILL ALWAYS BE NUMBER 1 !!!!!!!!!!!
apple is better and you now it and to all those that don’t now Samsung is 40% down in a lot of countries where apple is only 8% if its that high so enjoy android while its still there ….. just saying thanks for reading my own personal thought as I have had them all……..
05/25/2016 at 7:32 am
1. Apple means Awesome….Apple means Cool……Apple means best and good product in your hand…Apple means….Eco-Friendly…..Apple means innovation.
2. Android and Microsoft is copy of Apple
3. Android is copy of Apple iPhone and iOS
4. Microsoft is copy of Apple Mac OS X
5. Apple and Apple Products is much better and Eco-Friendly
6. Apple is always awesome in today…and coming future

Someome compiled a 100 reasons why android is better that iOS TAKE THAT!
05/26/2016 at 4:56 pm
What most of us care about is specs, you can have a 6gb ram on android and have the snapdragon 820. But when it comes to the games the android will never be smooth as Apple or faster the performance in apple will always be better. But android will only have a bit better graphics because of its amoled technology
06/02/2016 at 3:23 pm
If you wanted to make this a fair comparison you’d compare it against Vanilla Android so it’d be the Nexus 6p and immediately your points about bloatware and cable become invalid. Also, how can you say apple doesn’t come with bloatware? Have you tried removing the stocks app recently? What about file sharing, have you never heard of Android Beam? Or the fact almost every flagship has a fingerprint scanner now? This is the most poorly written, one sided piece of crap I’ve seen in a long time. How do you even have a job?
P.s. I own a Nexus 6p for private use and iPhone 6s Plus for work and they’re pretty much equal in every way except for the Nexus having a better screen, free apps, faster charging and longer battery life.

06/03/2016 at 9:32 am
This article made me laugh pretty hard. I just love the reasons they give for the phone being better. Now 1 thing that is always MORE important than ALL of these is the actual phone. Also, those apps that come with the phone, it depends on what you are getting… Also, you do know apple is making a switch to MicroUSB right? Humph. Seems like just in this 1 paragraph I have already made better points than this article. Anyways, phone-wise, androids are almost always more powerful than an apple phone because of the fact that iPhones are never equip with a good core or a good amount of RAM. They slow down quite quickly and seem obsolete after a few months. Yes. Months. I have had my Moto G3 for awhile and it is still ultra fast and has no technical issues.
06/03/2016 at 9:09 pm
problem with iphones is that u need itunes etc.. and too many permissions. I like to just plug in and drag and drop files…. I don’t give a monkey’s behind whether apps look better or what not. let’s be honest, price wise the iphone is beaten every time. there is just no bang for buck. I laugh at people who buy these things for the show off appeal as I know they are getting ripped in a rather large way………
06/08/2016 at 3:25 am
I used android for 7 years this is my first iphone 5s bought two years back
From the day i bought this iphone till now regularly i m browsing in website that why iphone is better than android, why iphone is better than android,why iphone is better than android,why iphone is better than android but while using android i m much okay with everything…. iPhone is simple best for call ,messaging ,camera with instant speed though its two year old device … But not more than that In android its like sea u can do lot lot more than iphone but not as quality standard reliability fast easy as iphone .
06/09/2016 at 7:13 pm
Has anyone thought that maybe iPhone is more simple than Android simply because the staff aren’t smart enough to produce anything more complicated than simple? It seems obvious to me. At least Android screens don’t break when you drop the phone on carpet like iPhone’s do. There’s Applecare because the iPhones break like a window hit by a baseball because the whole phone is either thin aluminum or covered in glass (which is a hazard if the glass shards cut you and potentially make you bleed out). The aluminum iPhone’s are currently being made of bend in your pocket! They’ll need some high quality flexible glass and easily bent straight CPU (without anything on the inside being destroyed). By the way, for the vibration thing on Android you don’t have to input password or anything just click the power button and hold down the turn down volume button for a second or two and that’s it.
06/10/2016 at 1:40 pm
So your reasoning is half “It’s popular” and most the other half is comparing apple features to the bad features of a multitude of android phones? The whole usb bit is quite a stretch too. You’re just another iSheep.
06/12/2016 at 12:33 pm
android is way better than android
its an open source os which means you can customize everything literally and you can’t say that ios is better than android because snapchat looks “prettier ” what are you?
5years old girl.
and apple users are like a bunch of sheeps.
apple never lets you do anything without their” ok”
and many other that makes an apple device less than an android one
in conclusion android is better than apple
06/13/2016 at 4:57 am
its very funny coz all of them are WRONG :D XD
Please use a droid phone before you write an article about it…. XD
Droid phones are better :) i have droid and an apple for my job.
Apple slow, makes mistakes, bad battery, compatibility is a SH*T, this phone is a JOKE for this prize :D
I am so sorry but if anyone pay for this device, get a “L” tatoo to your face :D LIKE LOOSER :D
06/15/2016 at 5:52 pm
I’ve got a Samsung galaxy a3 2015 it’s full of bloatware and half the stuff on it is for s6 or higher I can’t remove it almost 6gb out of 16 has gone with all the preinstalled apps it taken up 10gb before I can use it why do Google feel the need to mash up my phone with apps and cap il not use I’ve never owned an iPhone and I am saving up to get one as android is just not for me any more and apple have got software and apps I have always taught android would have but they won’t pay apple to get yes Google offers services for free but 99.9 of them come with viruses and it screws up your phone as for security it’s all third party apps APPLE SEEMS TO BE THE PIONEER OF SECURITY AND SOFTWARE THAT IS SIMPLE PLUS A PHONE YOU CAN PAY WITH AND PLAY WITH JUST MY THING BUT THE PRICE PUTS ME OFF £439 as a pose to £155 but I’m still undecided
06/20/2016 at 8:10 am
The worst trap you can get into is to be dependent on Apple.
06/21/2016 at 2:47 pm
iPhones made a big impact, but now they don’t know what to come up with next. It’s sad because Apple prides itself with innovation but releases the same type of phone every year. The only good use for iPhones is this now:
06/24/2016 at 4:21 am
People who don’t get hold of an iOS device are the ones complaining about them.
For people who say iPhone is not worth it is because you can’t afford it.
06/28/2016 at 8:00 pm
Many times i’ve seen android users commented about iphone negatively in some case when it’s the iphone article they would show up and get involved on the otherhand i’ve seen a very view ios user commented the articles about android. So we may conclude lots of ………
07/03/2016 at 1:20 pm
I’m so late to this party, but I HAVE to comment..
I do not care what the name brand is. It could be called Android or robot or Apple or peaches or dog poo. All I care about is having a good phone that can do the most. Phones are expensive. I’m not buying a brand name. I’m looking to buy something that has everything it could possibly have if I’m going to spend that kind of money.
You’re “reasons” show good things about IPhone, but are not “reasons” as to why it’s better.
IPhones are good phones. People like IPhones because it’s a trend. It’s popular. That’s it.
IPhones are not even close to androids. Be truthful.
Androids are mini-computers. Literally. IPhone is not. You can do 100 more things with Android that you cannot do with IPhone. The That is the truth. And Apple products are a lot more expensive.
Why would anyone pay more for a phone that gives you less? It boggles my mind.
Android has variety. There are many, many phones, companies, styles to choose from. They even offer cheaper options that get the job done.
They have an SD card slot. Why would anyone dish out $100’s more for more storage? That SD card is yours forever. For future phones or other devices. You can plug your phone into your computer and save(on the phone or SD card) anything (music, photo’s, video’s, contacts) and it’s yours. Without having to go through ITunes or anything else. Apple doesn’t own my stuff. I own it. And I can customize anything I own.
There are IPhone stores for these little nick knacks. Transferring files, contacts, etc.
It’s like going to a car dealership. One side has a variety of great cars. The other side has one car that is the most expensive. You see that all the other cars have a ton of features, options, colors to choose from, engines, horse power, cylinders, 2-door, 4-door, SUV’s etc. You ask “what’s so great about this lonely more expensive car tht only comes in one model and doesn’t have these other options?” The saleman replies with “Because it’s popular”.
07/06/2016 at 6:36 am
Yes, this! I agree 100%.
07/04/2016 at 11:09 am
No some of these staments are wrong android has a mode that will change you load out to make it simpler and look like apple cameras so much better its not even comparable iphones are rhe same every year android is some thing different like the edge and note you clearly didnt do your research i use to love iphone and thought it was the best and galaxy/android suchs but when i swiched ill never go back to an apple phone
07/05/2016 at 6:19 am
07/05/2016 at 3:12 pm
I just smell a whole lot of fanboying and bias.
07/06/2016 at 6:32 am
I’m astonished at some of the reasons listed why iPhone is supposedly better. I have two iPhones now, a 5 and a 6, that I can’t get my photos off of onto my PC laptop. I’ve gone into the Crapple store more than three times and still haven’t gotten them off. My idea of HELL is the Crapple store! I hate that place. There’s hardly room to stand and then you end up being sat at a table waiting with a bunch of other frustrated people waiting for a tech to help you. Of course this is after you make an appointment, or in my case last time, two appointments. I don’t see that as a plus at all because not only is going there a royal pain in the ass, but then they don’t even offer much help after several hours. My iPhone does not recognize as a drive when I plug it into my PC. It used to, and then stopped. I don’t want to have to use iTunes to transfer photos or music. I want to just plug it in and have it be a drive and copy whatever files I like back and forth. It does not work; and I’ve spent, literally, hours trying to get it to function that way. I also have a pretty complex DSLR camera and yet it is still easy as can be to transfer the photos from the memory card onto the computer. So why can’t a supposedly user-friendly phone just do the same thing? I seriously hate my iPhone 6 so much I wanted to shoot it, except I discovered it’s worth a good bit of money still so I’ll sell it on ebay.
07/09/2016 at 4:46 am
A lot of childish responses from android fans here. I gave the nexus 6p and try for 2 months after my old iPhone broke. Hardware was great, but I found on this android phone the app integration and interoperability to be no where near as good as an iPhone. Apple is just better when it comes to form and function. Buy an android if you want to tweak it forever and play in a sandbox, buy and iPhone if you need a productive phone.
07/10/2016 at 12:47 am
Your comment may not be childish but it is not correct. Comparable Android phones have far better form and function. Take the iPhone 6s plus verses a Note 5 or s7 Edge. The Apple is bigger and heavier yet packs has a smaller or same sized screen as the Samsung’s’ yet has far less features. Both these phones are far more productive, can multi-task properly, be fully customized and allow widgets on lock and home screens for speed, convenience and ease of use. The Note even includes a stylus or pencil. Great compact design, fully featured and greater functionality (Android) vs Heavy outdated bloated hardware with mid-range specs and limited functionality (IOS). Not to forget the limited compatibility of iPhones and lack of choice!
07/10/2016 at 12:01 am
There are facts, then there are opinions.
07/10/2016 at 12:26 am
This article is a disgrace, misleading at best. Most of the reasons are just not true or highly debatable.
07/12/2016 at 8:20 am
congratulation all of u commented on weather iphone or android’s is the best
In my point of view it may be any phone that is android or iphone. If we had a phone that should meet our requirements.Requirements means each and every people has different requirements in case of security,memory capacity and so and so.
Hence apple or iphone buy any thing because all are vanity, “vanity of vanities”
07/14/2016 at 3:55 pm
I’m someone who switched from android to ios but this article is utter bullshit. Yes, I love my iPhone and i’m so glad I switched by my samsung galaxy 4 was nothing but shit lately but these arguments in the article are dumb as hell. Lightning is better than micro usb? excuse me, what? my iphone takes ages to charge (iphone 6) whereas my s4 charged within an hour. i don’t see how that makes micro usb bad. but well my iphone battery lasts over a day and my old phone could have never. sharing location isn’t hard on android since almost everyone uses whatsapp bc imessage doesn’t exist on android and whatsapp has a location sharing option so that argument was dumb. yes, apps do look prettier on ios but i don’t see how only that would be a reason to switch?? this article clearly comes from someone who has only owned apple devices and doesn’t even know what they’re talking about, if you really want to prove a point you need to ask someone who has used BOTH of the things you’re trying to compare otverwise you’re just gonna embarass yourself. just saying.
07/20/2016 at 2:28 pm
Why are you guys even arguing about this?
07/24/2016 at 3:44 pm
The major advantage iOS has over Android is that Apple designs the phone and software. Whereas for Android (open source) other manufacturers have to play with it to get it to work and sometimes it’s not fluid. Take the Nexus phones for example…they just work like the iphones. No bloatware..nothing (like the iphone). Majority of my friends have iPhones and sometimes I wish I did too because of MMS (iMessage). I used both and I hate that i have to use itune for everything but it is what it is I guess.
07/24/2016 at 10:26 pm
I’m 8 years experimented developer for iOs devices and I say that Apple releases so frequent updates because iOs is just a stone age OS to fool iOs users that Apple works seriously behind their products. It must run to compete Android OS.
07/27/2016 at 8:49 am
Best to have both. I have an Se and G4 best of both worlds
07/30/2016 at 7:16 am
So many things piss me off in this article but specifically stood out
I have no idea with this author is saying he obviously hasn’t seen an android phone, they are exactly the same.
Lightning vs. Micro-USB
Micro-USB usually charges everything from headphones, to power banks, and of course cell phones. And multiple times to insert it is an absurd comment, after about a week you’ll probably memorize which way it goes, and how do you insert it incorrectly more than once. And USB type-C is just starting to come to the mainstream that’s why it’s not on everything.
Why do people even buy the 128 GB version, not to get apps but to download media like pictures, videos, music, etc. I agree with the statement about how sd cards are treated but there’s a much more simple solution, buy a larger storage option.
Sharing purchased content
Sign into the play store with the account that originally bought the content, install it, then sign out. Problem solved, and if anyone says “it’s more convenient” think about how often you might actually purchase something that costs actual money, I’ll bet it’s probably less than once a week.

I love iPhones. They always have nice designs and I like the simple interface. I have been itching to get an SE with its smaller dimensions (I like small phones). Money is not a problem to me but as much as I really want one I will stick with my Android device. Why? Cause the compatibility of iPhones to Windows pcs are real bad or none. You’d say “get a Mac” but I can’t: too many programs I need that unfortunately are only Windows-available. If this one single point of compatibility would be addressed, the iPhone becoming as compatible as Androids, I would get that iPhone SE in a heartbeat!

Who the hell needs iPhone I can name 100 reasons why Android is better but I’ll just name 20 1. Freedom 2. Apk 3. More sizes 4. More colours 5. Waterproof phones 6. Big and small tablets instead of the HUGE iPad 7. Clear cache option 8. For apps and also all the app store apps 9. No need for jailbreak but if you root you’re device will have no restrictions :D 10. Notification swipe 11. Google now 12. Google maps instead of the crappy apple maps 13. Multiple users feature 14. SD card storage So you don’t run out of storage easily like on the 16 gig iPhones (128GB or even 256GB) 15. Pattern unlock 16. There’s everything on Google play store even GPS spoofers to do the Pokémon go spoof in like 2 seconds 17. Unknown sources option 18. No need for an apple I’d all you need is a Google account which is way easier to set up and use 19. Get apps that are not out in your country easier (Pokémon go) 20. Android sounds better then apple

This article made me so angry I must go punch a kitten.
It’s an interesting psychological phenomenon, our emotional ties to brand loyalty. It’s as if the device we choose to use says something about who we are as people, and there is some ancient war of two types of people being waged through our genetics.
Apple users are like Yankee fans, Android users are the goth kid outsiders. And the war rages on.

The guy who wrote this sounds to be a one eyes man to me….. He is fond of his iphone and may have seen some android phones, but never used any. Then he decides to write an article called iPhone vs Android and iPhone wins!!!! Good job
09/10/2016 at 3:36 am
Some of these are true but Oh God some are just so, so wrong. Like, the notifications. Android is wayyy better. You clear all at once or swipe. It combines like notifications that you can separate. It allows to interact with the notification and app without opening it and its just, way simpler and cleaner.
09/10/2016 at 7:31 pm
Let me settle this. Choose an iPhone if you are incompetent or are ok with a company controlling you’re phone completely. Choose an Android if you want to be able to enjoy the latest technologies and can competently manage it’s abilities without whining that it takes more than half a brain cell to use.

Just read all the comments and wow it’s all he said she said. I’ve had my Nexus 6p which btw one poster said it’s Google made nope huewei or whatever. Point is not the same, for about a year now and I’m now getting the iPhone 7. Are the specs pretty damn similar? Yes alot of the same features? Yes update often? Yes Nexus gets all the Android ones first like Apple. Price? Actually the 7 is less than the Nexus by about 150.00 CAD sooo that defeats the argument about price… Just saying. I love my Nexus but I’m open to changing. Ice bounced back and forth alot between Android and iOS can I say one is superior to the other? Absolutely not it all comes down to does it do what I want it to and can I afford it.

All good and well people love free stuff but free stuff comes with a price of selling your info to the uncontrollable thirst party. iPhone also offer easy printing option than android you have to download something that will ask you to upgrade by paying just to use your printer no way!
Also iPhone helps stop third party apps that try to use your phone making phone calls example if you are searching for nearest restaurant Google will show the call number to the same restaurant but when you try to call instead of calling direct the parasite apps like whatsaapp, text… And more they pop up asking you to use them making a call while they can’t function without your service they bug you each time taking away the time you spend trying to make a call.
If you’re in a hurry and these app try to suggest you use it think how buggy this is. The same applies to text messages.

Have u really owned an android? There are many many more possibilities and helpful apps that came with my galaxy s7 edge and i love it alot! So many more features and charging is so much faster and the battery life is amazing
09/15/2016 at 7:45 pm
You are a stupid retard Apple isn’t better than android. Apple has had to recall their product so many times because people died from the battery exploding. And with Apple every 3rd phone they stop making updates for it. Android always has updates for their products. Plus Apple owes the government 37 billion dollars Android doesn’t. The iPhone 7 that is coming out is a total ripoff. They copied Samsung. Apple has never made a crack resistance screen and a waterproof phone. Samsung is simply better.
09/17/2016 at 12:00 am
I completely am for people having their own opinion, that being said I disagree with the title of this article. That being said without any bias coming into play here, some of the points that the author was trying to make aren’t true or aren’t completely true.
1. “Works with all your devices”…
The real title should be works better with all of your APPLE devices. The examples in the article are all apple examples. The author obviously has no experience with android or windows.
2. “Faster Updates”….
Compared to what android device? You can’t just say that Iphones get updates faster and compare that to all android phones. The way that this section was written made it sounds like the day an update is release for Android, nine of there phones get it immediately like the iPhones… this just isn’t true. If you have a nexus you get updates as they are released (just like and iPhone)
There is a bunch of other examples that just show the author has no experience with android devices, I’m just going to keep this short.
People will choose what they think is best for them. My issue is with the author, not the opinion. All the argument were completely based on opinion and not facts. People are going to read this and take it all as fact, instead of doing research and finding the right device for them.
09/18/2016 at 10:26 pm
I have both an iPhone 5 and a Galaxy S7. While there are some advantages to the iPhone, there are several reasons why I just can’t make a permanent switch. First, no home screen widgets (like my calendar and agenda). Sure, you can add something like that to the notifications screen, but that involve swiping, as opposed to right on the home screen. Second, it’s so difficult — even annoying — trying to organize files on the iPhone. On an Android, it operates exactly like a computer should (and our phones really are computers these days), with folders, subfolders, etc., so you can just copy the files to where you want them for later use. You can’t do that on an iPhone, where all of your files go to some mysterious and deep “collection” on the phone. If Apple were to add those two features, then I’d happily switch away from Android.

I wanted to try an iPhone, so I got an old one. I could simply not install anything because everything on the AppStore has moved to iOS > 7.
I could not bring a single file to the phone. All it would do is sync with iTunes on my Mac, but there is nothing to sync because I don’t use this Mac for everyday life.
The iPhone I got did not have any smart way to save battery.
The iPhone I got could not play any of my music because a) I could not upload it and b) I could not install anything that would play ogg files.
The iPhone I got was heavier, thicker and less good looking than my current Sony.
So OK it was an old iPhone, but 90% of what I say would be true for the latest iPhone, and at what price! If you live in the Apple world, then an iPhone is probably the logical choice. I live in the Linux world and now I know I’ll never take another look at an iPhone.
09/24/2016 at 7:11 pm
Worldwide stats – Android users 82% vs IOS users 18% There’s not enough votes to even tilt the scale towards IOS being better. Being as the story indicates Android phones are only good for 2 years that makes them more expensive. How can IOS users explain why 82% of the market would rather pay more for less?, if that were in fact true. Iphone offers less control, poor resoluion, no expandable memory and not all phones can share the same apps. Android offers all of it as well as compatible with Windows whcih is currently at 80% of the market share. This is like comparing the Yugo to Prius. Sure the Yugo is cheaper at first, but after a year of so, not so much. Iphone resale is more, but that will drop due to fewer and fewer users as they get tired of the box of crayons with only black and white as an option. when they can get the box of 64 and a sharpener
09/24/2016 at 8:41 pm
Is this all a big joke? You keep saying “iPhone is better than Android” about ten times in the article, like a mantra we have to learn and assimilate, Am I the only one who noticed this?
I have and iPad, and iMac and I used iPhone (4, 4s and 5) I am familiar with both iOS and OSX but actually I have an Android and installed Windows 10 on my iMac.
OSX is a good system if you like simple and easy interfaces, I don’t really have any problem with it, is a really good system once you learn to do things that are diferent with Windows, like formating drives with Disk Utility. (And if we forget how difficult could be for some people to use drive formats like NTFS in a Mac)
But iOS, thats another story, Apple manufactures iPhone and developes a OS which works perfectly with that device, which, supposedly, makes it safer. There ends all iOS and iPhone REAL advantages.
There are a lot of reason to say Android is better than Android, but the main reason is that you can freely add and delete files from it. I connect my Android to my computer, I press “Windows key” + “E” and immediately I see all my drives and my Android device there, and I can drag or delete files from it. But when I connect an iPhone I have sync up files with iTunes. Why the hell people think synchronization is good?
For example, I spent one week adding all my music from CDs to my iTunes library, then I synced my iPhone and… voilá, my music was there. Then my computer died, and my music adquired during years with my money was completely lost, just because I didn’t buy it to Apple. But hey, music was still on my iphone, but NO, I need a third party program, which costs money or could be a malware, just to upload my songs again to a new computer. (Of course I have all my CDs, but thats a week lost)
Im simply asking you to do like me if you can, just try everything, because if I read this article (iPhone is better, iPhone is better, iPhone is better…) I have the feeling that not everyone, but many people conform with iPhone. Just for popularity, for Apple fanaticism, or just because a website is telling you to buy it with superliminal advertising.
09/26/2016 at 11:37 pm
I actually find that android apps have become much prettier and definitely more modern than iPhone apps at this point. Twitter, Facebook, all the google apps, as well as plenty of others have better looking designs on Android now than on iPhone thanks in large part to material design!
09/27/2016 at 12:53 am
What a crock of misinformed shite
09/28/2016 at 4:39 am
Really. Devices cheaper, but they have similar power with iPhones. And it’s open-source, you can customize it all over you want. I installed CyanogenMod ROM for my Xiaomi device, and it runs faster, and i can set any proceesor mode for any time. And I can watch anime on it and play Hearthstone all the same time!
Check out my cool article with android vs ios, where android is better: https://vironit.com/android-vs-ios-what-is-the-best-platform-for-mobile-development/
09/30/2016 at 5:17 am
I actually like both but there are two things that make me stick with Android phones:
1) the compatibility with Windows. I plug the phone to any pc or laptop with Windows and I can access and modify the memory and sd card just like you do with an USB flash drive.
2) probably my favourite Android feat: if I don’t like a new update for an App I just download the previous version (you can get the whole updates hystory as .apk files of virtually every single app found in Google Play on the web) and there I have my dear older version that works so much better for me. This “roll-back” possibility is just pure gold.

I can do all of this with my Andriod plus a lot more that an Iphone just cannot do.

This is for Charles Alden.
If I could have 1/50th of your technical expertise I would be overjoyed. Meanwhile, I’ll just be glad I chose a Samsung. At least I got that right.
10/07/2016 at 1:29 pm
None of these arguments accounts for any good reason to buy an iPhone except argument number 1. Android can do these equally or better. I have been a heavy android user till date until yesterday when I bought iPhone 7 plus. I own an iPad since two years. I am happy with my iPad which I use mainly for games and some handwriting. Yes I was annoyed from android. I owned s3. It had, due to some reason, a built in issue which I only realized after warranty finished. My faulty s3 obliged me to hate Samsung and android. Then I bought note 4. It solved all my problems I faced on s3. But still there were some things I did not feel good about.
Now after purchasing iPhone 7plus 128 GB I understand the power of google. The three apps Google search, google maps and google drive are enough reason to close down iPhone factory from the face of earth.
10/10/2016 at 2:09 am
Thinking to upgrade from s5. Thought for iPhone 7. But it can not do even 5 % work compared to android. My andrioid mobile automatically silents itself when I enter meetings or office. Automatic meeting mode when meeting is scheduled (only beeps) I can give my mobile to anyone to see coz I have app specific fingerprint. Only sensitive apps are protected. All other is open. These are not possible with apple except jailbreak. These are just samples. I can write journal what android can do. Speed is not important with a Ibrick which can not do anything smart. I’m not a fan of apple or Samsung. I want my work to be done and my pocket secretary to work according to my requirements.
10/10/2016 at 1:47 pm
15 reasons why Android is better.
Reason number one, you have an actual file system. Anyone who has dealt with iOS horrendous file management paradigm appreciates the ease as at which files are accessible in Android. You simply click on Open, navigate to where your files are stored, select, done. There is also never any reason to use the Share function except when sharing data with the internet.
Number 2, multitasking, iOS’s multitasking absolutely sucks, especially when you compare it to Android. Example, I can stream a film to my TV wirelessly, while compiling an application via a remote terminal, while downloading a 40GB file directly to my NAS drive which is mounted as a local folder, while I convert a media file to .mp4, while I play N64, 007 Goldfinger using a replica N64 USB game controller.
I’m able to select my own default apps, so when I download a file and click open, the app that I normally use for that extension opens up automatically.
I have a global search function, which is one of the worst things about iOS, how do you find files. That was rhetoric, you can’t, it’s basically hunt and peck.
I can customize voice commands, this is perhaps one of the coolest things about about Android. I have around 250 custom voice commands, mostly for searching files. Such as, “show me all file [file extension] created on [date]. Even photos, show me all photos from [city] on [particular date/month, years], even for a particular person , “show me all photos for [name] on [particular date/month, year]”
External display support, when am connect my phone to a monitor not only is the resolution fully supported but so is the aspect ratio.
Mouse support, while connected to a monitor I can use a mouse and a keyboard. Even when not connected to a phone, having access to a mouse is an absolute must when using a tablet as a laptop.
USB peripheral support, so besides mouse support, my phone supports a TB external HD, HP All-In-One printer in which the scanner even works, USB replica game controllers in which a have one for the N64, SNES, Sega and PlayStation.
Better overall specs, I have a 2K AMOLED display, 6GB of RAM, USB C, SD Card reader, HDMI out support, etc.
I can use a custom desktop LDPI, I changed my LDPI to 380 which is the LDPI that activates tablet mode, which means all of my apps are a lot more powerful than the normal phone UI ones.
I can customize my entire system to what I want it to be, give it personality, iOS users have been using the same system UI for the last 9 years. There is absolutely nothing I can’t customize.
Inner app communication is a lot better, since iOS has a Walled off prison, or so called Walled Garden, apps communicate via API’s, which is the root of everything wrong within iOS. Anyway as stated above, I don’t have to use some half assed sharing function which creates a copy of the file your sharing every time you use it to open up my files within multiple apps, I simply click on Open. I can even open up the same file within multiple apps at the same time. I never, ever have to create more than one file, I just use the original file, always.
I can use Linux under a Chroot, meaning I have a full Debian server running under my phone. Why would you want this, well first of all I have CLI applications like; Python, Perl, PHP, MySQL, Apache, etc. I have all of my favorite Linux GUI applications installed like; Dia, Inkscape, Gimp, BlueFish, etc.
I can use my phone as a desktop computer, this one might sound weird but not only is it possible, it works incredibly well. Especially when my phone has 6GB of RAM and a Qualcomm 821. Like I said above I have all of my favorite Linux GUI applications installed in which a bring them up using a xterminal, when I’m at work I have access to about a hundred different Windows applications via a Citrix client which works fantastically. All of my applications including the ndroid ones are opened up in individual windows, so none of that dual app view non-sense. In which in iOS less than 0.5% out of a million plus apps actually support.
I have access to widgets, they might not interest you but they are extremely handy.
I can use wireless chargers.
I can use custom ROMs, even completely different OS’s like Ubuntu Touch, SailFish, etc. I will never, ever not be able to run the latest version of Android. When a manufacturer stops updating their phone, no problem, I just install a custom ROM and they work fantastically.
My phone is a computer, a real powerhouse, a real smartphone. Every time I use an iPhone I absolutely hate the experience. I mean even to type a post like this I would have to use a text editor as I would be afraid to loose all of my work as anytime you switch to another app, Safari just resets. It has happened to me numerous times, it’s why sites have started saving drafts, not for the Android users but iOS users. Though what bothers me the most is the lack of multitasking, yes, sure, there are a few apps that can run in the background but they are far and few and none of them are the ones that I need or want to use. Than there is the file system or I should say lack of, dealing with files IOS is simply a complete nightmare. Anytime someone at the office who uses an iPhone gets sassy with me about having an Android phone I simply ask them to show me their user directory, what, you can’t mount it, why not, your phone is so great. Not only do I have my remote server directly mounted as a local directory on my phone but my workstation and all of my cloud services as well, all accessible within any app installed. Again, my phone is also my desktop computer and why not, it’s not only powerful enough but more than capable. I couldn’t believe how horrible the external display support was on my iPad Pro, which I recently replaced with a Lenovo YogaBook, best decision I ever made. Talk about a complete makeover on how I work, I’m actually productive now. I can create detailed reports, all in the background and automatically, I have access to a scripting language, automation, multi-user support with OpenID to access my firms internal network, a real Office suite, MS Office for iOS was a complete joke, there isn’t even a import feature, scripting language, nope, database support, nope, by the way, I have the Android version. Which opens up every app under their own window, iOS’s dual app support on the iPad Pro was a joke, hardly anything supports it and that drag and drop feature, only apps designed by the same developer can use it, so MS Word to MS Excel yes, MS Word to Apple photos, no, useless.
Yes, my post is huge, but this authors best 15 reasons why the iPhone is a joke. Almost everything listed I have on either my Yoga Book or new Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus or don’t need it as it’s a waste. In fact 90% of the so called new features in iOS 10 are useless. I held on to my iPad Pro thinking iOS 10 would be a game changer, not only was it not, but there wasn’t a single feature that improved my experience. Apple keeps skipping over every feature that we actually want, need. If your happy with multitasking, file management, the fact that you can’t select your own default apps, lack of customizations, horrible external display support, lack of USB C, limited NFC, horrible USB peripheral support, especially mouse support. Horrible inner app communication including the Sharing function in which took Apple 8 years to even release that crap, ugh, the list just goes on and on and ………….
10/11/2016 at 12:18 am
This is one of the most biased articles I have ever read on complementing Apple. I am an adult, I don’t need Apple to limit what I can do with my phone and what I can share and who I can share with. I have used Iphone before and it surely not my cup of tea.
10/12/2016 at 4:11 am
Listen what I think is that you have written an article telling the blank truth of your mind. But you see I have an iPhone 6s,iPod 5,MacBook air, MacBook Pro, Samsung TV with built in smart tv, Samsung galaxy tablet pro and I don’t mind Samsung to be truthful. Also I find that Apple is more easier to use but harder to switch from an iOS device to an LGphone.

10/14/2016 at 2:20 am
Let’s face it… I use an android lollipop but after comparing and visualizing the specifications.. One can truly say that iPhone is way more better than android. ..though we need to invest some bucks unlike android phones. 😀
10/14/2016 at 9:12 am
iOS is superior to Android. I was suckered in buying 2 android devices the samsung galaxy s3 and the nexus 4. I gave it a try because my friends raved about android. They are smart people who generally have great advice and knowledge on technology. So I said I’ll give it a shot because they have good judgement. However I found out that their judgement were out of biased hatred toward apple.
1. on paper they have more ram, sometimes quicker cpu clock speed, higher resolution etc. however real life performance tests apple out scores android devices, just check geek bench and speed tests. As for higher resolution our eyes dont even detect the larger resolutions.
2. I found out the hard way, downloaded apps that just didnt work for my device. Google needs to improve this I dont know if they are better now but man they need to detect the hardware your using and tell you ahead of time before you download and install an app that its compatible with your device!
3. customizations my butt!! Its a great idea so called if all your launchers actually look good! haha I tried all these loaders for my s3 and they were all ugly. Just go with apple, its like saying would you hire great designers for your house and you would just let them have their way in designing the house for you or would you want to design it yourself? doesnt make sense look at xiaomi great example they just copy everything apple does and it looks great. Dont hire cheap designers to design the way your phone looks and works.
4. OS – android’s solution to everything is “oh just download this app to make it work or oh just kill this task or reduce brightness or this or that” why?! If I’m paying 1k for a phone why does it not just work? Why must I non stop have to tweak things on my phone to get save battery or make things work? For instance for whatsapp there was no function built into the app that when I want to send a larger video than that of the given limit on a video it just rejects it. On iOS whatsapp gives you a little function that u can just cut the video into segments and send them in separate messages? This sounds like it can be something that is on the app level. I dont know but as for end user experience its just not convenient you need to download another app that will cut videos in segments for you this is retarded.
5. battery life just sucks on android – and my friend is all like well it works for me…well that’s because he had to buy a new battery that was double the size and totally threw out the idea of having a sleek thin phone.
Theres on and on the list goes android and samsung devices are not superior devices. The features samsung lovers speak of are just gimmicks. Keyboards, widgets, notifications honestly who cares? Especially when widgets just take down performance on your phone? I just dont see any benefits on android especially the argument went something like this: “oh android phones are cheaper for superior hardware” Like I said hardware maybe superior on PAPER but in real life benchmarks iphones outshine samsung and htc and other top tier android devices.
By the way prices are not cheaper anymore so android fanboys have no actual argument. Like I said I tried android and they are not superior phones both hardware and software. Aesthetically Android phones are ugly. You now pay a premium price on sub premium products, and they explode. lol
10/20/2016 at 8:47 am
Sure. A Samsung or LG’s phone software is ugly. But stock android?! Android 6.0 stock? It’s an extraordinary interface with origami-style apps. The geometry with the shadows and vibrant colors is beautiful. The app drawer is simple, and you can put the apps you use on your home screen. Android’s advantage is software. iSheep are just too autistic to use it.
10/16/2016 at 8:02 am
I have both! I have an iPhone for work and I have an Android for my personal use, in my opinion the phone is shit and could not compare to the Android in any area,i f it were up to me I would NEVER own an iPhone. Anybody who argues this point has never used them side by side. No comparison.anybody who stands in line for the new iPhone is absolutely getting the shaft and not even getting the best product , it’s laughable!
10/18/2016 at 1:26 pm
Great article. Over the years I’ve had both. Even a couple of Macs. I use PC’s now because I like being able to work on them and build my own. For the average user the I Phone is a better choice. They are simple and work well. Here’s the big negatives for me:
The hardware and software are proprietary. In fact the phones are sealed. You can’t install an extended battery. No SD slot. No root access. Comparable Android phones cost a lot less. The Android phones natively work with Google Apps.
We use our phones in the business. If I were a casual user it wouldn’t matter if it were a Trac Phone or an I Phone. We use the Google phones and Motorola phones. They run pure Android without all the carrier bloatware. I like to say Apple invented the smartphone, but Google perfected it.
It’s like the choice between a toaster oven and a microwave or a full commercial kitchen. Most people will get along fine with the toaster and microwave. They don’t need a commercial kitchen. But, what if you could get the full commercial kitchen for the same price as the toaster and microwave?
Everyone has an opinion about which is better. But trust me when I say this isn’t a choice between chocolate and vanilla. There are very distinct differences between the Android and Apple phones.
10/21/2016 at 7:17 am
Wtf, apps never ever releases on iOS first. It always releases on android first. Also app updates releases on android first, so that’s kind of bullshit what you are saying. The only thing iOS beats android in is security and stability. Also you can get virus scanners on android, so that thing doesn’t matter. And one thing more, who ever uses FaceTime or iMessage, when we have messenger, Skype ect… And that point when you said that iOS stock apps was the stupidest crap I have ever heard. First of all it was a shit point, what are you gonna need the looks for? Second is that not everyone thinks it look better, so keep that mind. I am a iOS user and I am so disappointed that you can’t even customize the most of the things. I have to admit that the design of iOS is pretty nice, but you get quick tired of it. That’s why I jailbreaked my device to get the ability to customize it more professionally. But I don’t compare a android device and a jailbroken device, because jailbreaking is not something that comes with Apple. iOS is also very expensive compared to android devices. And checking storage on android is way more organized than iOS, so I don’t know where you get that idea that checking storage on iOS is better.

the lightning port part is bs i have an iphone (looking for a new phone android) and there are around me on my desk already 3 micro usb and 1 lightning port witch costs around 40 bucks for a new one
10/25/2016 at 10:16 pm
Terrible article by an obvious fanboy. You are listing many things, like lack of carrier or manufacturer bloatware, reversible charging plug, seamless sharing, etc and saying they are exclusive to Apple. Try Googling USB-C, the current standard on any higher range Android, some still cheaper than an iDevice. Try a Nexus, or as of this year, Pixel phone. No bloat, Android as Google intended it. That would be a more fair comparison as those are at least close in the chain to Google, like an iPhone is to Apple. That is, instead of being made by some company who may not even care how it represents Android, build quality, and other important things, instead of pure profit(not say all non Nexus/Pixel phones are bad by any means, but some do give Android a bad name with poor specs and modified/outdated versions of Android). Seamless sharing? Ever hear of WiFi Direct, Bluetooth, or NFC? NFC is the simplest. Just hit share and tap. All but the cheapest Androids have that these days. Anyways, I am convinced you have never used a decent Android, ever. Certainly not one from Google themselves. I will leave you to tend to your iFlock.
10/30/2016 at 2:00 am
For android, I think google products like nexus & pixel are much better than samsung. However, I noticed a lot of crappy apps available on google play that doesn’t work. Some apps require root access which only advance users should do. Android interface is not as intuitive as iOS.
Some android apps hang. I’ve never had ios apps hang on me

“You have to try multiple attempts before putting the charger in at the right angle”
1. If you do it in a lit environment you will get it in first try because the micro USB shape is easy to see
2. If you are in the dark:
And have an official Samsung charger – there will be a “bumps letting you know which way to put it and the only thing that can go wrong is you missing the port, which is possible on iPhone too.
And have any old micro USB – there are two, normal, ways to insert it horizontally upside down and horizontally the correct way both 180 degree angles so please don’t exaggerate it.
Finally Samsung cares about you that’s why they use micro USB. This may seem weird but basically to legally make a lightning USB cable you need a licence from Apple and Apple only have their own unique charger to earn more profit, that’s why apple chargers are always more expensive, because they are sold by Apple or the retailer needs to make his money back from the licence fare.
P.S. Samsung devices come with a 1 year warranty for free and because it’s Samsung you can get cheaper insurance than their one (yes they have one)
P.P.S. Sharing has always been easier on android to anything because you could share with a variety of options such as Bluetooth, NFC, messaging app, other third party apps, S share (Samsung own “air drop” that came out in Android version 4.1.3 BI7 – before Ios 7
Also the settings icon is useful, it’s like apple not making the send button on messages 3d touch to send so you don’t accidently press it, sure sometimes you send half written messages but it is more convenient and normal to have it to a single normal touch.
And there is a difference between apps looking better and having more features on Apple which are usually hardware based, I just brought this up because no matter who you ask if you compare a Samsung phone with its equivalent iPhone generation, Samsung phones ALWAYS have better displays and MOSTLY have better cameras.
Samsung phones are also very comfortable, for example I am writing this on a Samsung galaxy s7 edge
There is a setting that allows the micro sd card to be added as side by side storage
Finally Samsung has always had earphone controls so either I read it wrong that you said these are things we will miss very much or you are really confused

Each and every single of these are false. Android is actually better in every single of these areas. From the first to the last one. Worse yet, many of these points are actually some of the very reasons why idevices absolutely suck.
11/16/2016 at 7:08 am
apple is crap, these idiots make their products so expensive, but android is cheaper and has alot of awesome features.android is also WAY more customisable, with out necessarily rooting your device.And if you do, you can do almost anything from installing apps to changing your software.
11/16/2016 at 12:14 pm
I think both of them are just great!
11/16/2016 at 1:08 pm
The update can still download on older Apple products, because I have a IPad 2 that came out in 2011 and it still receives all of the latest updates. It is running IOS 10 right now.
11/16/2016 at 4:53 pm
Been an exclusive apple lover for 7 years now. But just bought an edge 7. Was amazed to see how much progress android has made and makes my iphone look so limited. I am aware that android tends to slow down over time but that is yet to happen to me. For now the openness of android is amazing as it is giving me a computer like experience while iOS still strictly behaves like a mobile device only.
Classic hurt points being in iphone /iOS being
No expandable memory
No dual sim version (i travel internationally and need this frequently)
Unable to use lastpass like apps the same way as in android (and keychain is BS, BTW)
Simple things like themes unavailable
Very less system wide control
Very limited customisation
I can go on but i think unless my expensive edge can give me same performance as now for ATLEAST 2 years, i’ll eat my words back
But, the 15 points mentioned here are almost all very unconvincing.
11/17/2016 at 6:18 pm
Apple are just simple phones no really fancy stuff I have had two Android phone I love their features but not their battery life which is crappie I have had two Apple iPods and two iPhone they were the 4 32 GB & 5s 64 GB now on Android your apps get updated every 3 months on Apple sometimes twice a week IOS updates are twice month at least I bought my iPhone 5s 64 GB which started with iOS 7 in 2014 now it got iOS 10.1.1 it seems the IOS are getting worse not better it freezes crashes most apps lot of the app you can’t even post two year let alone one day old photo I can get on my Samsung Galaxy S3 with 3 year old photos on it and post photos off it to any app only reason I like the small iPhones I can collect lot photos that way I can post to my apps like now I got over 106K photos on my 5s 64 GB which you can’t do with big phones only problems I got with iPhones are updates on apps and IOS’S like this month iOS 10.2 supposedly be coming out it seems the new IOS’s don’t really fixing any problems you get on your iPhone it just give you different problems while you still have the same old problems you also got figure Apple iPhones are about 3 years behind Android phones on new ideals

The author has no idea of the freedom of open source OS. From the moment you boot up ios, there are restrictions to what you can do with your phone.
Can you flash IOS9 to iphone4s?
Guess what, my old galaxy s2 is already running marshmallow like a charm and i think both of them were released in the same year.
and i am in the process of flashing Latest nougat 7.1 cyanogenmod version on my s6 edge.
You are writing about malware crap which is misleading.
New android versions since lollipop allow users to modify app permissions but i think you are so caught up in app constrained ecosystem, you didn’t noticed. IOS isn’t secure anymore as we thought it was.
Su vulnerability has already been fixed and there is no more stagefright bug in android.
And you obviously have no idea about the difference between android based phones and android phones.
Most of the Phones from samsung, htc, sony etc run Custom Android based OS, They are actually custom build port of android, not real android phones,
so obviously there will be some issues too if you try to port IOS on samsung.
A high end smartphone can go head to head with iphone in each and every aspect. My s6 edge is not even a tad slower than iphone 6, in fact, it performs even better.
The slowdown overtime can be experience on low end smartphone. Obviously the one writing this comment has no idea about fstrim.
Stop posting such nonsense crap in order to get traffic to your website.

I have never once had a problem with android phones, but decided to switch it up as IPhones are the ‘in thing’
It was okay for a few months, but soon started having plenty of issues with speed, memory and doing basic things. I decided to upgrade it to the 7, which turned out to be just as bad.
For the price, they should be giving people something amazing, not mediocrity!
P.S. How much did they apple pay you for such a bad article.
12/03/2016 at 10:08 am
You didn’t mention how Apple has a much smaller battery, late software updates, unneeded restrictions, is insanely overpriced, and most of all, Apples processor specs come in at a fraction of what Androids of the same price have, AKA 1.6 GHZ (Apple iPhones) vs 2.4 GHZ (ASUS, Galaxy S7, OnePlus all running Android), 2 GB of RAM (Apple) vs 4 GB of RAM (Android). Android is by far the superior technology. Your only argument is that Android uses Google’s superior sharing system, rather than their own like Apple does.
12/14/2016 at 2:50 am
For me, it’s all about security, and Apple has the best. Also, if you buy an iPhone you get updates and support for a couple of years more than Google provides for it’s own Nexus or Pixel phones. Two years worth of updates for the OS and Three years for security updates FROM THE DATE OF FIRST INTRODUCTION is totally inadequate. It means that you have to buy a new google phone from the date it is first available in order to really benefit from the updates.

Let’s compare the “core” features of a new iphone to a 2 year old android phone:
iphone 7 plus – Released 2016, September
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – Released 2014, October
iphone 7 plus – 1080 x 1920 pixels (~401 ppi pixel density)
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – 1440 x 2560 pixels (~518 ppi pixel density)
iphone 7 plus – Quad-core 2.23 GHz
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – Quad-core 2.7 GHz
iphone 7 plus – 12 MP camera
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – 16 MP camera
iphone 7 plus – Non-removable Li-Ion 2900 mAh battery
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – Removable Li-Ion 3220 mAh battery
okay…you can have your “better looking apps”.
12/28/2016 at 12:47 am
Yes Android phones are better everything wise but iPhone battery is better last as long as up to 3 to 4 years Samsung last up to 6 months I know had S3 and HTC 1 still got S3 3rd battery it’s just iPod on second iPhone first one was iPhone 4 32 GB lasted 4 years got iPhone 5s 64 GB it’s over 2 yrs old but don’t use for taking photos just for collecting photos which small iPhone can collect up too 100K photos like my iPhone 5s I’m not SELFIE PERSON where I got take photo of my self in every window mirror and bathroom I love stealing other people photos like Anime ladies in bikinis to post on my other apps even Animals if they are cute enough yes Apple do make there apps crappie and there IOS’s also which crashes and freezes a lot then half time you can’t post photos or articles from your e-mail too the apps but I take Apple for small phone over android big phone

More pixels require more energy and chip performance. To human eye it looks the same screen.
It’s same as you put truck engine in a car for same volume of fuel.
Do you really need that for your serious business tasks? Kids need that for games only…

This brought my iq down by 10 points, iphone users aren’t bothered by that because they dont have any iq points to lose. This list is pure “i don’t like it so that means android is bad” and “its apple so whatever it does it’s genius”. if you’ve ever ACTUALLY went from crapple to android (unlike 99% of the comments here that say they have but in reality… well) you would notice a LOT of improvements over crapple.
1: The price to quality ratio is MUCH better that apple’s.
2: More customisation options. Unless you count changing your phone cover as “customizing”.
3: It’s not apple, so it’s better (see what i did there? I did the shit apple fanboy’s do)
4: No dumb “inovations”.
5: Simplifying things and making something that takes 3 seconds isn’t better, Sony, Samsung etc focus on more important things to improve.

iPhones are more compatible with other devices if you have an iPad and Mac. But if you’re like majority of people and have a Windows computer that’s a lie. I installed iTunes once and my computer was never the same again. It was slower and crashed more often untill I uninstalled it. With Android you don’t have to install anything to put music on your phone.

I’d have to say if you think the last iPhone was 2 years ago then you know nothing about it. I have a android galaxy tab 3 and the iPod 6 generation and if I was to choose which is better it’s definitely Apples product and I never would get an android again. When I got my android new at Walmart it couldn’t even get the latest version, it was completely unbelievable. After I had it for 3 months it slowed down on me and its battery life is horrible. Now when I bought this IPod new I’ve had it for a double the time now and it works like new and best of all it can get the latest version. The quality of Apple is way better. In my opinion the iPhone is the best visual quality I’ve seen yet. Ive done some decent gaming on them and if you want something to save your progress then forget android, because not all the game link to your google play account so if you reset it the ones that don’t link are gone. Unlike apple I haven’t had any issues with it. I’ve lost decent money and progress on android because of it. Yes Apple does come out with the newest technology a bit latter then android but you can see it it a good way or a bad. The bad way would be that their slow, the good way you can see it as if their watching googles failing parts and their making it better.
01/03/2017 at 2:02 am
Also I can see you all are fighting over this topic which is pretty stupid. To be honest you can’t necessarily compare them. Everyone is different so everyone is going to want something different. If we all wanted android or we all wanted Apple we would become robots. If you wanted to find a phone to get then get into inside detail to see what your looking for. If you wanted fun texting and want to be more secure then go straight for apple because they got the best for that but if you wanted fun lock screens or be able to put micro SD cards and changeable batteries then go for android but let me remind you that anyone can take the SD card out and take your information. Hope this helps.
01/04/2017 at 4:10 pm
people will buy iphone just because thats what everyone else has they dont even know what they are buying. They think because its popular its the best choice..all robots who don’t think for themselves
03/06/2017 at 3:53 am
Since it’s more popular it’s better …
01/04/2017 at 6:25 pm
i read almost every comments and keep deciding what should i buy: an android or iphone. i own android for 8 years now (from the era when sony ericsson still existed) and got so accustomed to it. i changed devices for 4 times during the 8 years because i want to get spec updates regularly. i love the fact that it is very simple in android: you can buy any android device you want and you will feel like you never changed your phone. contact, picture, apps, music will all still be the same as in the old phone. i heard that iphone is more stable compared to android so i am thinking of switching but i am genuinely scared the switch will cost me more: i will have to buy new headphones, mac (because many say that iphones does not connect well with pc), and i am very clumsy so i’m scared of scattering my iphone screen and will need to pay more to repair it. my husband owns a 4s and it still works until now, and it is true that android has shorter lifespan for a clumsy user like me because after some point android will keep hanging..
but still i think android is perfect for people like me who doesn’t really have the money to be a vivid apple follower.. i don’t want to be all attached to itunes.. i dont want to be obliged to buy a macbook to operate my iphone well.. i just don’t really like to spend almost all of my earnings to buy a single phone, when at the same time the same amount of money can be used to buy an android and a pc, and a vacuum cleaner.. maybe someday i will switch to apple products altogether when i have a mountain pile of money to spend.. but for now i am quite happy with a middle-end android phone and will stick to it..

iPhones are better than androids, PERIOD. At least we don’t get viruses, androids are very slow and lag A LOT! iPhones are really fast, while androids have “better specs” than every iPhone in the world. Wow, people here in the comments are blind as heck, like have you people ever used and iPhone before? Think before you speak.
01/13/2017 at 6:22 am
I have used an android phone for the last 20 yrs and just in the last 2 yrs switched to an iPhone. Sure there may be more that an android can do ( provided you download appropriate apps) but as a comment above made, after a month or 2 the android starts slowing down dramatically. With the iPhone this does not happen. BUT the major improvement that will keep me with the iPhone is security !!!!!!
01/17/2017 at 2:39 am
Well said Josh Smith… But My view about your article is…No one can said this iPhone is better or Android is not Or Vice-Versa until you are not aware of their pros as well. There are alot to know about these two before making your mind to go for iPhone or Android, one of them. Both phones have their own features and plus points. It is insane to say this iPhone is best and other phones are rest. As we all know among both of these Android has very good quality of camera but latest iPhone 7 brings the revolution in the mobile market. To know more about this you can read from this link: https://peaktal.com/iphone-ios-or-android-which-one-is-best-to-buy/

Well said Josh…But my view about your article is…no one can say with his or her own perception that iPhone is better than Android or vice versa. There is alot to know about before making up the mind to go for iPhone instead of Android. Seriously, its really insane to say this iPhone is best And other are rest….As everyone know this Android has good camera quality but we also know this iPhone 7 placed the revolution in the mobile market as well. What i am trying to tell you is this perspectives and features. To know about these or making a decision about which is better or not… Please read about these two on this link: https://peaktal.com/iphone-ios-or-android-which-one-is-best-to-buy/

Apple fanboys,crying it out.What a pity,brainwashed fools
01/30/2017 at 5:35 am
I have been an iPhone user since day one (currently 7 Plus), but this article is insanely prejudiced. Most of the alleged superiorities are interoperabilty between iPhones (iMessage, Airdrop) or between iPhone and other Apple devices (Handoff) – if you are a PC owner, or have a large number of friends or fellow users on Android, these advantages are insignificant at best. I will concede that updates and lack of carrier bloatware are significant pluses, the author is doing an extreme disservice to new users by basically promoting an iPhone prejudice.
01/31/2017 at 8:59 am
iPhones win over Android smartphones for these 5 critical reasons. Security, Privacy, Stability, Performance and Usability. iOS gets far less malware than Android, it has far less critical vulnerabilities than Android. Vulnerabilities are patched quicker in iOS. iOS crashes and freezes less than Android, Apple doesn’t harvest data to sell like Google does (Google has even started collecting identifiable data since they released their new voice assistant). iOS is a faster OS than Android is while Android smartphones slow down faster than the iPhone does. And of course iOS offers the better out of box experience. Not to mention you can never make Android as secure as iOS, only close to as secure. Part of the reason is even if you tweak your Android settings to be similar to iOS, the official Google Play Store gets far more malware than the AppStore and Cydia combined. So only way to even remotely match it is not download apps or games. My other favorite part of iOS over Android is the fact you can use true adblockers in iOS, not just adblock browsers without the need to root or jailbreak. Google will never allow you to block ads in Chrome or block all ads third party ads without rooting. And as you knowing rooting and jailbreaking merely lowers the security of the OS. That’s another thing Jailbroken iOS is more secure than untouched Android as long as you stick to the default repos in Cydia.
02/01/2017 at 8:57 am
Download from unknown sources like a regular computer
Download files from browser
Plug in and transfer anything to and from computer.
Just acts more like a computer in regards to freedom to do as you will where iPhone is locked down like a game system.
03/06/2017 at 3:40 am
You can do all that in iTunes. iPhone is more careful to protect data while android is less careful. Today security is most important and that is iOS goal.

I also believe iPhone is better than Android. I am tired of using Android and going to buy iPhone soon for better camera, speed and style.
02/17/2017 at 3:51 am
One VERY important fact that no one has mentioned… with Apple you can be a total amoral ignoramous and be surrounded by adoring fans !!
Who really cares if the poor sods on the other side of the world live the lives of slaves? Who cares if they have to stand ALL day, and ASK for pissbreaks? Who cares if the companies solution to suicides are suicide nets around buildings and removing knives? Who cares if the iphone costs a dollar to make, but sold for $600? Who cares if most of the jobs are not in the countries paying for the status symbols?
So lets be clear, its all about “im better than you because i can waste money on bling, and *&$! your community at the same time”.
02/18/2017 at 9:43 pm
I’ve had both. many times. I’ve had every version of the iPhone. I’ve never had an Android phone update properly. My 3 year old plays on my old 2nd gen iPhone that has the latest IOS on it. . .. android can’t do that. with the exception of a Verizon flip phone, every single Android phone I’ve ever had got a virus, crashed and I had to reset to factory settings at least 2 times per phone. I have never, ever ever got a virus on ANY Apple product, and never had to put any software or app to keep it running correctly. As far as customization? Who cares. If you’re so busy and have so much time to waste trying to impress everyone with crazy fonts and wild customization, the iPhone is way to sleek, sophisticated and user -friendly for you. Software dictates hardware. The IOS blows Android OS away. And, any (anyone who’s actually worked on both will agree) Apple product gets sometimes twice the speed out of less RAM and processing than ANY other OS (Windows or Android). Give me stability anytime. so your phone has an expandable memory? What good is it when it won’t run half the time. Have a nice day all. . .. .after all, they’re just phones. . .. right?
02/19/2017 at 9:45 pm
Some things to add (pros and cons) as a PC & Android guy that just switched to iPhone (but I’m staying on PC):
1) The iOS versions of Microsoft apps are better than the Android ones and they work great.
2) Article is correct: the iOS versions of apps are generally better than their Android counterparts, in ways you will notice. It’s really kind of a shame for Android – I don’t get why they don’t just match the exact app.
3) Lightning is neat but I found MicroUSB more useful, since it’s used for more devices, i.e. I have a MicroUSB running from my desk to my PC to charge my wireless mouse, and then I would also use it to charge my phone sometimes.
4) Yes I do miss customization heaven with Android, but this iPhone runs like total butter. Android runs WELL but this thing is so zippy and responsive – you wouldn’t believe it until you spent time with one.
5) ALSO customization isn’t as cut-off as it used to be with iOS. Some apps can latch onto some functions in the phone, kinda like installing an extension for your desktop browser. It’s something.
Really I just bought an iPhone to “try something new” and I’m really liking it.
02/28/2017 at 7:39 pm
Just do a Quick google search iphone is less reliable than Android, theres your Answer in the studies. End of debate…
03/01/2017 at 7:25 pm
These comparisons are so lame…
Eg: Country X is much better than the rest of the world, because the rest of the world have varying standards, while Country X has only 1 level of corruption.

First: great respect to Steve Jobs who dedicated his life to Apple iPhone invention and to make communication better more joyful between people. Also to feel the power and beauty of technology in your hand. How I wished that Isaac Newton or Ainstein or Nikola Tessa or… would see what we have today…
Second: iPhone is far more serious for people who want job to be done as fast and simpler way without delays. Android phones are for kids who like customizations and pretty colors and to look like iron man or similar…
Third: iPhone is made of better materials. And looks for business high class. Android phones are copying iPhone’s look especially Samsung.
Fourth: iPhone technology, the software and hardware gives you exactly what you need. No more no less. Android technologies gives you extra things which are seldom used and are simply extra using more battery and device performance.
Fifth: iPhone has a specific style in design. Keeping updating same style to better one making it each time better and better.
Sixth: Applications on iPhone are much better with much less defects than Android.
At the end, I had various Samsung, Sony, Huawei, Htc and iPhone phones. I choose iPhone. Now I have iPhone 6s+ black limited edition with golden Apple. It’s very nice piece of equipment.
at the bottom line, Apollo 11 travelled to the moon using Fortan on its 360 kb computer. Today we are talking of gigs bytes. So I respect both iPhone and Android technologies for their great effort and progress. Competition shall exist to make difference and better.
Thank you for reading this…

03/14/2017 at 6:10 am
iOS is a more secure platform than Android.because we have many factor that show iPhone is much better than android :
iPhone Apps Are First and Better Looking
Fast iPhone Updates for All
No Carrier Bundled Apps
Design and build quality
In last we say simple line “If you have the money, go for iPhone, but on a budget Android wins.”
03/18/2017 at 8:18 pm
Since you stated in this article that the Apple costs 3 times as much as an Android; and that in resale you can get twice as much for an Apple as you can for an Android, doesn’t that mean that the Android has the better resale value, or did I miss something?
03/19/2017 at 7:36 pm
No doubt iPhone is the best. It’s highly secure and make people addicted to it with it’s cool features.

Why are people fighting over iphone & android? It should have been either ios vs android or iphone vs samsung,moto,etc.
Agreed iPhones are best
03/30/2017 at 3:44 am
I have just crossed the divide from a nexus 6 to an iphone 7 plus. Reason 1: os not supported by google now for updates
Reason 2: android still not working properly version 7.0 … come on!!
I have found iphone apps work better.
System is super quick.
Everything seems to work how it is supposed to without strange errors.
I am getting on with doing what i have to without googling why something isnt working properly.
Photo app is amazing.
Web sites load really fast.
I am now an Apple convert! The price difference is negligible now but the performance is chalk and cheese.

how dumb are you?
UI isn’t everything

Great delivery. Great arguments. Keep up the good spirit.
04/05/2017 at 6:55 pm
This is stupid I’ve used both companies and Android completely outperforms apple
The camera is better
They are faster phones
They don’t all look the same
Less annoying updates
Apple has a massive update that takes up all your storage and takes centuries to download like every two weeks, also iPhones only work “great” with apple not all your devices
04/07/2017 at 2:03 pm
My first phone was an android. I hated it, probably because it was really old and complicated. When I got an iPhone 5, I really liked the simplicity of it. The apps were way better and was less laggy.
04/09/2017 at 9:43 am
There are so many nonsense comments on this list . … iphone works better with your devices??? Lol if like to see that, yeah maybe if all your other devices are apple!! I can name about 50 reasons android is better than I Phone…. I have owned both and wouldn’t use an i phone if it was gifted to me !!!
04/10/2017 at 2:14 pm
It seems idiotic to buy an IPhone. You can get a phone with the same specifications(Processor, RAM, ROM, Battery) for $120, where it would cost $800 from Apple. You can get phones that are no joke, 5x faster for half the price.
04/12/2017 at 9:03 am
Sure apple’s phones die quickly but wanna know why… Because people actually like using them so they go on the a lot more than android.
04/12/2017 at 9:14 am
Jerry is right.
04/18/2017 at 4:37 am
Hardware and software both controlled and optimized by Apple
Curated app store, fewer worries of malware
Generally good support
No expandable storage
Open source, easily customized
Expandable storage on many phones
Wider choice of phones
Higher chance of malware
Interface not the same on all phones
04/19/2017 at 4:56 pm
Most of your “reasons” are bogus ravings of yet another member of Cult Apple.
04/23/2017 at 9:59 pm
This hole story is a joke if you look at the specs alone they are better look at the iPhone 7 no headphone jack come on removing a universal jack wow and also they are very over price and that second hand price part was pure crap I just look it up the iPhone are cheaper second the Samsung’s were a higher price in second hand condition. In conclusion I would recommend not to by and apple computer and or iPhone because of the very expensive repair price and the child proofing of there iPhones that is the only reason why they are prone not to getting viruses they are limited and closed it is very sad. whating for the apple fan boys to attack this comment with some more ”facts”
04/25/2017 at 9:56 pm
14 reasons why iPhones are better? Me and my brother just finished reading this article and were laughing hysterically through every single reason. My guess is that you’re a loyal iPhone fanatic who tried an Android phone for a week and didn’t understand it. You even used some funny tactics to make the iPhone look better in every photo, like using a small Galaxy model next to a large iPhone, with iPhone on full brightness and the Android one at around half. That’s a little sleazy.
First of all, you said iPhone apps update sooner and are pretty. That was true MANY years ago before Android was the dominant OS. The reverse is usually true, as most developers prioritize on Android because more people use it.
‘Fast iPhone updates for all…’ For one thing, the same is true on newer Android phones, which constantly receive updates just like iPhones. Sure, older Android phones no longer receive the newest updates… but neither do old iPhones. Does anyone here have an iPhone 4 running ios 10? I thought so. Also, major ios updates tend to make the soon-to-be obsolete iPhone model so slow that it’s unusable. It’s happened to me and others I know, to the iPhone 4 and the 5… and soon to the 6, so they can force you to upgrade to the newest polished turd they churn out.
The next one made me laugh so hard that I got sharp pains in my stomach. Thanks for that. “Works great with all your devices” Sure, IF YOU HAVE ALL APPLE DEVICES, just like my Windows Phone works great with my Windows PC. Android works well with Windows, and Linux, and… everything else, except Apple’s computers. In fact, no Apple device can integrate with anything other than another Apple device. It’s just a circular logic-sustained monopoly. If you’ve fallen for it, good for you, but don’t try to use such non-logic to persuade others.
The article argues that Android’s inclusion of carrier bundled apps depending on the manufacturer makes it inferior. Most people don’t like the carrier apps, but guess what, you can uninstall them or not use them. You couldn’t, however, uninstall Apple’s bundled apps until very recently. The only apps on Android you cannot uninstall are the system apps.
The article then point’s out Apple’s iPhone warranty. What’s funny is… You can get the same with many Android manufacturers, but you can also choose not to. After all, a warranty, like any other insurance business model, makes responsible users who do not break their phones subsidize those who do break their phones.
The ‘sharing to other iPhones’… Just like you can share to other Android phones on your Android phone, not to mention the fact that Android’s sharing options are more extensive and easier to use. So, that’s a downside on Apple’s part:]
“Worth more when you resell” This was another wildly hilarious one. Can you guess why iPhones resell at a higher value? It’s because they’re more expensive in the first place! Higher resell value is just a not-so-clever way of spinning the fact that iPhones are extremely expensive. Again, a downside on the iPhone’s part.
Lightning miles better than Micro USB? First of all, an entirely subjective statement. The Lightning cord was unpopular for a reason. It’s just a way for Apple to make more money, forcing people to throw away their old cables and buy new ones. That’s just crappy business. Also, I personally think Micro USB is much better, because they’re very versatile and widely used, and are compatible with ANYTHING else USB. Like the mighty kraken, Apple has a way of grabbing you and pulling you into their ecosystem, choking you to death by consistently overcharging you for mediocre hardware.
Apple stores for support? You mean like the equivalent support you can get from most Android phone manufacturers, MINUS the cheap rates and competition? That sounds FAR superior!
The next argument is over ‘ease of use’. First of all, most/all functions common to both operating systems are performed just as easily on Android. The ease of use argument only exists because some of the things you can do on Android, but not iPhone, can be difficult. Because the fact is, Android is so much more customize-able. You can install new themes, you can use file managers, you can manually install app packages, and much, much more. Some of these things take learning, but at least you can do them in the first place. If you just want an Android to use as a phone, you can do so just as easily. Ease of use is just another way of saying you cannot do anything advanced on IOS.
“HEADPHONE CONTROLS!” Newsflash: they work on Android too. It’s fully supported on every Android device I’ve tried, and i’ve tried some really old ones.
‘iMessage, FaceTime and FaceTime Audio’ There are good, equivalent services on Android.
Better control of notification? The way they are handled on Android is quite similar, and different types of notification ARE separated on Android, so I don’t know what you’re trying to say there.
Storage use and carrier options: It’s funny that the author uses ‘choice’ as one of his arguments. You can get most/all of the same options plus more on Android. It’s also funny how you decided to name Andoid’s common acceptance of SD cards a negative. You wrote that you can move some but not all apps to the SD card as a negative. Obviously, because you should not be able to move essential system apps to an external device. At least you can choose external storage in most Android phones, which cannot be done on a one size fits all iPhone.
This post was pathetic, mostly because every single argument is a non-argument, or reflects negatively on iPhones. It does provide a good laugh, though.

Iphone is a lot batter people
05/07/2017 at 6:43 am
U r dreaming IPhone fun! Read this: Galaxy S8 &Nougat!
05/09/2017 at 11:35 pm
really men are you for real
1 apps look better on android
2 android don’t require updates (apple sends security patches because IOS is S***)
3 this point is acceptable
4 in android we can expand the memory (with iphones u cant do any thing,an deteting stock apps only hides the icon
5 android is a software, be realistic
6 almost ever phone has Bluetooth and NFC for that
7 who cares about reselling price, this should be about usability
8 whatever u lazy isheep
9 again android is a software!!!
10 simply turn on Easy mode
11 there are headphone controls in android
13 Better Control of Notifications my ass
conclusion apple will be shitty for ever
06/21/2017 at 12:37 pm
I’ve used both Android and iPhone and I agree on all points. Curious, Josh Smith, what do you use as your personal daily phone?
06/21/2017 at 3:18 pm
Is this article a joke? Must be cause the first couple of paragraphs just made me laugh hard. Didn’t bother to read the rest. And for all the Apple hard-core fans out there: keep using your beloved Apple products by all means, I certainly couldn’t care less unless you try to push some bloody iPhone down my throat, but know you are a minority on the worldwide picture and that’s statistics talking – not much to argue on that.
06/23/2017 at 4:46 pm
Geez guys. I am far from an Apple fan and I think a lot of his reasons are invalid, but what this author is doing is very respectable. I didn’t realize it at first but he has another article that argues why Android is better. So he basically argues it from both sides and allows you to come to your own conclusion. Can’t get much more respectable than that.
07/16/2017 at 12:56 am
Those apps isn’t true you can set beta on and Thad you get those apps before iPhone does software update they need to make those updates for 24.000 devices and apple only iPhones but for Android there is LG Samsung Xiaomi Doogee Alcatel and much and much more all things you said weren’t true so when you make something do it good!
08/06/2017 at 1:09 pm
iPhone better than Android? Haha laughable in every way.
09/08/2017 at 6:07 am
True, iphone updates are awesome and mostly stable and offers for 4-5 years straight.
That means the iphone 5s still gets the newest updates and which makes the phone so slow, many complaints about that already on reddit.
2. Devices connectivity, Android market has way more devices of which you can connect with bluetooth, Wifi-Direct, Cast, NFC,…
3. No carrier bundled Apps? Ever heard of Oneplus?
4. Warranty? Every Android brand has it’s own warranty (2y in europe) and insurrance.
5. sharing to other iphones. everheard of VOLTE on android? No?
6. High selling price? A 800-900€ device wil always be expensive when reselling, no matter what brand.
7. Lightning is Miles better than Micro-USB, yup. Dash Charge from oneplus (Otto) is LIght years better than lightning. So another point for android.
8. Apple Stores for Support. You seriously have to go out, drive 30-60min to find a store?
Android has internet, we got ADBtools, we can access to recovery modes TWRP and even to whole system backup on recovery mode, try and beat that Apple.
9. Ease of Use Wins Over Android. Against you’re too biased towards samsung, concentrate yourself towards Google Pixel or Oneplus 5 and behold the power of stock android.
10. Headphone control? the oneplus 5 even has 3.5mm jack. And included a equalizer, come on apple. Can’t you do better than that?
11. “The iPhone still does a better job of managing notifications. Android makes it easier to clear out your notifications, but we still prefer Apple’s”
Really? I don’t even need to add any comment in here
12. storage use. you’re bragging of 2 variants. namely 64GB. Keep in mind the oneplus base model already comes with 64GB internally. it comes with 6GB of ram which destroys the iphone at multitasking. By having faster animation it’s the only phone who beats the iphone 7+ in speed tests.
All in all, The oneplus 5 costs 549.99e 128GB. For the iphone 7+, which has the same screen (5.5) and with the iphone 7+ 128GB model, that phone cost here 849.99e here in portugal.
The oneplus 5 has faster fingerprint unlocking, amoled display, identical camera performance, better performance in low light, faster UI experience, MUCH BETTER BATTERY ENDURANCE, faster charging,…

lets begin with ths guy or what ever is an apple fan so he lets us see only the good things for apple but some things he said are not an issue anymore he didnt show things that are for android because he knows android does an better job these days apple is the past
and f you are an computer guy you probaly have android
sorry for bad english im dutch. dont make a issue from it *******
11/08/2017 at 1:21 am
Google needs to get their act together and force everyone involved, cell companies, brand manufacturers and such to produce the updates within 90 days of the software or they just simply cannot carry the Google product any longer. Google is to blame here for not taking on the manufacturers and cell companies. It’s almost half fast what Google does with its updates because they know your going to continue to buy their products anyway.
01/22/2018 at 12:24 pm
Watching the anger pour out of all of the android fanboys… Just hilarious. There isn’t just 10 reasons the iPhone is better, there is way more. True Tone display, Computer Chip, Screen Resolution, Camera, Battery. All of those just blow Samsung out of the water.
01/25/2018 at 8:06 am
Another stupid comment from an iSheep
10/12/2018 at 5:59 am
I tried both types of the cellphone Android batteries don’t last plus cellphones are really big I like the small Apple iPhones but since they are getting bigger it not worth buying plus now both cellphones are getting too expensive like my iPhone 5s 64 GB I got over 196,000 photos on it which you can get that many on Android I noticed mostly the women love those great big phones I cannot see carrying big cellphone in my front pocket you might as well carry iPad or laptop around
01/11/2019 at 3:23 pm
If SD Cards so bad why do they have them in Cameras also in PLayStation VITA plus you can use them in Laptops which I can use on my Gateway which I bought in 2010 look all that storage you can get for your electronics
04/04/2019 at 3:43 am
I have had Android phones And iPhones iPods from Apple Apple is more protected then Android you got updates on apps sometimes twice week iOS are updated regularly about two or three times Year the Android phones I used not many updates on apps or the cellphone itself right now I have iPhone 5s 64 GB just put iOS 12.2 this is my second iPhone 5s the first one the battery died after 3 years 3 months this second one the battery was giving me problems after on year replaced it with new battery it running like champ
