The famous Android / iPhone war! Everyone has their preference and is passionate about defending their favorite.
So we're sharing the advantages of Apple and Samsung phones with you.
PHONE SELECTION 💎
Apple only offers iPhones. There are several generations, but they're all iPhones. On the Samsung side, there are several series, giving you a wider range of choices for your future phone.
Obviously, with a greater variety of phones comes a greater variety of price ranges. You're bound to find an Android that fits your budget. For iPhones, you may have to pick up a phone dating from a few generations back if you're on a tight budget. After all, you're also paying for the brand.
It's very much a question of interface preference. The iOS system is known for being particularly user-friendly. So it could be a good option for your mom who finally wants to switch from her flip phone to a smartphone. On the other hand, the interface of Android phones is more customizable to your desires. You can customize your keyboard, the text messaging application, and so on. Apple's most recent updates have improved on the personalization front, though.
Apple stands out when it comes to its updates. Not only do application updates tend to be released first on the App Store, but iOS system updates roll out at the same time to all compatible phones. Android system updates, on the other hand, roll out gradually. So you may have to wait a while for your update.
VOICE ASSISTANT 🗣
Although Siri appeared before the Google Assistant, the latter is more generally more precise and has a better understanding of questions and different requests.
MULTI-DEVICE CONNECTION 💻
Apple wins this section hands down. You can quickly and easily switch from your iPhone to your iPad or Mac and get on with what you were doing. AirDrop is also great for sharing documents and photos with friends and colleagues.
PHONE ACCESSORIES 🦄
If you want to easily find cases, screen protectors and wires for your phone in pretty much any store, an iPhone is the right option. For Androids, it will unfortunately be a little more difficult at times, although there are more and more options for Samsung.
PHONE CHARGER 🔌
The USBC port has become the most common charging port, not only for Android phones, but also for other electronic accessories you may have at home that charge with a USB wire; Bluetooth headphones, virtual reality headsets, PCs, game controllers, and so on. So it's convenient to have the same type of wire for all your devices. Plus, USBC wires tend to be less expensive than Apple's Lightning wires.
With Apple exercising greater control over the applications that enter the App Store, there's less chance (though not impossible) of stumbling across a malicious application.
In short, both competitors have advantages and disadvantages, so it's just a question of finding out what's most important to you. Which do you prefer? 👇🏼
