Android vs. Apple: The eternal war between the giants
Android vs. Apple is an eternal war going on since the last decade. While Samsung released Galaxy S3, they launched a direct attack on Apple’s claim that “Samsung violated one of Apple’s utility products”. The advertisement was,
“Do you love iPhone? Buy Samsung. Apple says that Samsung products are substantially the same as their… with bigger screen, better performance, more features, more free apps, lower price.”
It was indeed funny and sarcastic. But we can’t deny this endless tug of war between the two tech giants of mobile phone operating system. I.e. Apple and Android.
Apple launched the first-generation iPhone on June 29, 2007. Initially developed by Android Inc., which Google bought in 2005, Android was unveiled in 2007. Since then Apple and Google are literally in a war regarding their respective products. The followers of these two products are even more enthusiastic than the producers even.
Noteworthy, iOS, which is the only operating system that Apple uses in their products, was made by Apple only. After Google launched Android operating system many companies utilized the OS in their respective platforms. And android is still the bestselling operating system in the world. In that sense, Apple is much behind in the sector of popularity and accessibility than android.
The question is why most people would like to go for an Android smart phone rather than iPhone? Let’s discuss the reasons:
- Price: iPhone comes in a high price that is not affordable for the maximum people.
- Ease of use: Even though Apple claims that iPhone is easier to use, there is no doubt that android is not that tough either.
- Design and fit: Well, Apple wins in this segment. iPhone is beautiful and android smart phones may vary in their looks.
- AI (Artificial Intelligence): In this segment Google voice assistant gives a smoother and smarter experience than Siri in iPhone.
There are other areas like, security, updates where Apple beats Android. Still, if you’re looking for a budget friendly, smart choice you should go for android phones.
As goes for enjoying the war between these two, we’ll never run out of options to get entertained as long as both Apple and Android keeps making their experiments bigger and better.
