Android and iOS, these are the two most competitive OS in the market of mobile applications. In such a healthy competition, no one can say that which one is better than other. In fact, I asked many people about their experience using iOS and Android but the supporters of both are almost equal. But I found in some cases that people prefer Android on iOS due to some genuine reasons.
iPhone released the iOS7 which is the latest version of OS. There is no doubt that the latest iOS7 is better from every aspect than other Apple OS but still it couldn’t defeat Android and people still love the OS of Google. Application developers for Android and iOS are also giving their vote to Android. Do you know why? Some features of Android are still better than iOS which I discuss below.
#1. Unlimited Sharing
It is a major edge of Android that it has unlimited sharing options. You can have any type of content, and move it through any app installed in your smartphone because the OS gives options to share the content to everywhere. On the other hand, iOS gives you limited options to share the content such as mail, message, social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc).
#2. Third Party Software Keyboards
In the Android, users have an advantage that they can replace the default keyboard from any type of third party keyboards available. This is not available in the iOS and still people are not happy about their typing experience in iOS7.
#3. More Options to Customize
Android also has unlimited options to customize your smartphone. Even if you want to download an iOS theme then you can through it. Whatever you want to do in your smartphone, you can do it by using Android. But iOS has limited options of customization.
#4. Easy Access to File System
When you attach your Android phone to your PC to transfer something then it gives a file system option in which there is flexibility for you to search any file(s) on your PC. On the other hand, iOS has no feature that can give you a similar type of access to your files.
#5. Import Photos from your Contacts
If you have an Android phone then it can automatically import your photos from your contact list. It also gives you the option to set these photos yourself. Due to this useful feature, it is very easy to view your contacts’ images rather than to view on iOS7.
#6. Multiple User Accounts
Come to the tablets. If you have an Android tablet then you can share it with any family member as well as co-workers because Android gives you a great option to create multiple accounts on one device, which just some limitations. But if you have an iPad then there is no similar type of option in it.
#7. Easy Access to Multimedia and Images
Download your favorite music and images from anywhere you want via your Android phone. It doesn’t care where the sources are from which you download any multimedia. But when we come to the iPhone then iTunes and iPhoto – both are required to access and download music as well as photos.
So, on the basis of these 7 features, I can say that Android is better and capturing the market more than iOS because users always prefer the ease and flexibility which they find in Android. I’m not saying that iOS has no value. It definitely has a big market in the world, but still, people love Android. Which do you prefer?
