With dedicated users on both sides the consensus of opinion to which device is the best tends to see-saw as new devices emerge onto the market, and soon it will be the turn of the iPhone with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus already generating a lot of excitement within the general public who now only have a few weeks to wait before September.
When you begin to consider smartphones and how we have come to depend on them for much more than making a call it seems pretty inconceivable that we managed without them for nowhere else can you access your bank, browse, shop and buy a multitude of items, save the world from destruction by alien forces check your health stats and play at your favourite casino, poker or slots site like Bingo On The Box from a device you can carry in your pocket.
All this is down to the advancement of technology and the ability to create even faster, slimmer and more advanced software as well as the faster Wi-Fi most of us enjoy. If anyone can remember what it used to be like trying to access say your favourite casino? To be honest the whole experience was horrendous as games would not load properly, would crash and with the small size of the screen you would have to have boasted ‘super vision’ to even see the game.
Now we can easily view in HD our favourite games, and once more we can enjoy great game play, superior graphics and audio/video clips whilst taking advantage of some fantastic bonuses and promotional offers.
- Both Apple and Google both provide good apps stores, but Android is far better at organizing apps which lets you put the stuff that is important to you on the Home Screen and hide the less useful apps within the app drawer. Also Androids widgets are considered to be more useful that Apples, hence this is an Android Win.
- Google is all about search but Apples Spotlight searches more than Google although Siris proactive search is limited with Google Now working tirelessly behind the scenes for flight reservations, sports scores, the latest news stories and best transit routes before you even think of them, making this a definite iPhone Win.
- Ease of navigation is the name of the game when we are talking about contacts and Androids are simpler to use. With its large photos you can easily see who you are looking for. The iPhone connects you automatically with Facebook and other social networks in order to fill your contacts photos whilst most of the Android phones requiring a separate app in order to do that. For ease of use this is an Android win.
- If you own an iPhone then talking to your phone is fun as Siri has a great personality and can also understand natural language better than Android, so for this reason talking to your phone is an iPhone win.
- Android has an incredible music playing app offering users an impressive free music, and although Apple has Apple Music which does not have free options it does integrate really well with your iTunes downloads and because of this it’s an iPhone win although this win could veer to the ‘other side’ very easily.
- iPhones have active notifications and you can respond from within the same notification without having to open the app which is something that Android does not have. Android, however lets you set which notification are most important and then automatically sends them to the top of your list. It is also much easier to clear the Android notification with a single swipe so this makes it and Android win.
What the above comparisons show is that there are pros and cons to both the Android and the Apple devices, which leads to the question, will there ever be and outright winner?
