Android vs IOS Why Android is better
location: androidpark.com - date: June 20, 2012
So we've all been there: trying to explain to an Apple fan why Android is better.
Well here I've compiled a list of the reasons why Android is better, while I'm open to any suggestions or corrections.
I'm not an Android fanboy, I'm a fan of technology and I own Apple devices, so this is pretty objective.
I'm leaving out my personal preferences and opinions, only putting my examples into cases the average user will find himself in.
1. IOS Crashes more than Android http://www.forbes.com/sites/tomioger...d-a-data-dive/
2. IOS has fake multitasking where you can't download while doing anything else and apps are put into suspension when you leave them and stop running.
3. Google apps are much better on Android with better interfaces(e.g. YouTube) and more functionality (e.g. Chrome, Navigation)
4. There is no Flash player on IOS
5. Sharing is very limited on IOS where you simply don't get the choices you get on Android
6. File Management on IOS simply isn't the
Why are you staying on Android (vs iOS 8)?
location: droidradar.com - date: August 13, 2014
I've been using Android for about 18 months, came from an iPhone 4S (and 3GS). Started with a Nexus 4, and I now own a G2. I'm thinking about going back to the iPhone 6 and iOS 8, but I'm undecided.
I love android because:
- Vendor and shape choices. I love choices, although most of them have issues (Touchwiz for Samsung, LG UI for LG, bad cameras and poor availability in Canada for motorola for example).
- Better UI on select devices. By that I mean that I actually prefer the stock android look to iOS', but that's only available on the Moto X and Nexus 5. I've tried stock roms, they still don't have the same performance as real stock android, and not super stable).
- Battery Life - yup. Says it all.
- Upcoming AndroidTV and Cast protocol - My AppleTV is getting stale compared to AndroidTV's upcoming platform, and really needs an app store.
- Set default apps - Google Maps!!
- Better notifications system
- Google now integration
On the other hand, especially considerin
Snappiness of Android vs iOS
location: droidmania.com - date: April 20, 2012
I was listening to the This Week in Tech (TWiT) podcast, and one of the panelists of the show says he knows why iOS always feels silky smooth when swiping through homescreens, menus, etc. And it's a really simple reason: in iOS you're actually swiping through full screen "images" of icons. So there is very little for the OS to do processor wise.
Conversely, in Android, when you swipe through home screens all the icons, widgets, etc are being animated left and right, so the OS is doing a lot more processing, and there is more potential for lag.
If it's as simple as that, then I wonder why Android isn't doing this too.
Android vs iOS apps?
location: droidmania.com - date: July 7, 2010
I've been seeing a lot of posts, and threads over the internet about "iPhone apps killing Android apps" I'm really curious. Since this is more an Android phanboy site instead of an iPhanboy site, I doubt I'll get an objective answer, but what the hell...
I've never understood the whole idea that iPhone and iTouch and all that have better apps than the Android OS. I have had the iPhone 1G and 3G for a while, jailbroke them both. And really I have not found ANY apps any good on the iPhone that are through the iTunes store. facebook crashed consistantly on me, and didn't really sync with any other aspect of my phone. Just about every game I came accross was horrible. It seemed/seems(just switched over friday to android), that all these apps are in their infancy, and really aren't any good. Beyond for the apps native to the phone, many of the apps i dloaded from the store were buggy.
getting the "illegal" apps when jailbroken was better, but once jailbroken the
Android VS IOS VS Windows Phone? Better Software?
location: droidmania.com - date: April 13, 2013
So my Question or Topic is why have you chosen Android over Apple (IOS) or Nokia (Windows Phone).
All of them are great phones, but what makes Android the better phone
out of all them? Do you disagree that Android is a better phone to the other brands?
I've had all 3 softwares to play with. I personally love the Android software and phone simply because you are more free to do what you want. You get more for your money, you may not have as much apps as an Apple Store but then, depending on what apps your really wanting (as I yet to say oh apple has this app and android hasn't).
To top it off, I have a great forum site that if I need hints and tips I can just go into and I get help instantly.
Apple is a nicer premium phone and look and you feel like you are more connected with people when you have an Apple phone although you don't feel connected when your looking for any sort of friendly forums. It's not as nice as Android (phandroid). As for Windows, well if we give it
Android vs IOS(don't panic) for education
location: droidmania.com - date: January 19, 2011
I am in a college class that researches "Emerging Technologies". Because of the surge of tablets, my group decided to look at Tablets. However, we have to decide which tablet to use. I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab running Android OS(obviously), and another member of the group has the Ipad, running IOS(again obviously).
However, lets actually look at the software, not necessarily the tablet form. What software does Android have that can be used in an educational field?
What advantages does Android have over IOS?
What disadvantages does Android have over IOS?
What apps could be created to help Android surpass IOS as the educational choice?
What makes the Galaxy Tab better than the Ipad for education?
All help will be greatly appreciated.
Android vs. iOS 5
location: droidmania.com - date: October 12, 2011
So I just watched a youtube video of iOS 5. It definitely has some nifty features. I own an iPad 2 as well as a rooted Moto Xoom and a rooted Moto DX. The main one that me, a new Android tinkerer, thought was cool was the little notification animation! Is there any way that that specific animation could be simulated?! I'm currently running MIUI. The latest Defy Base. Hopefully this doesn't start too big of a war if any at all.
My thoughts on Android vs iOS apps
location: droidradar.com - date: November 26, 2012
I recently got myself a Nexus 4, my first Android phone, and had been using it as my main phone for the past five days. I come from the iOS world (keen jailbreaker) and my initial reactions were very positive: Love widgets and how convenient they can beLove the extent of customisationLove the big screen and clean UI in generalLove the hardware (camera and speed)Love Google service integration (maps, contact, calendar) = just works
However, there is one aspect that really bothers me and I wanted to hear what other people think. APPS. iOS apps are often more polished than their Android equivalent, in another word they contain less bugs. I find Android apps crash more often and some of the functions donít always work. Example: I found a bug in Skype that the ringing tone continues to sound even after the call is connected. Skype has been around for so many years and yet there is a bug?
.Android donít always get the newest or most updated apps because it is easier for developers to c
Sprint android vs iOS, not what you think... Quick question.
location: droidradar.com - date: July 16, 2013
I have a iPhone 5 on sprint and the speed is so slow I can't stream pandora nor the iOS 3rd party gmusic app so in kinda wondering whether android would be a better choice for sprint. I'm a sero p member so my plan ins great and even though the sped sucks the voice is usually reliable and texting tends to do double but overall for the money I'm paying for a single line it would be stupid to leave sprint even with the crappy data.
Anyways since iOS has no file system and everything relies heavy on data and streaming and sprint sucks with that I'm wondering whether android is better due to the file system and the ability to save to sd card or the hard drive.

Capabilities: Android vs. iOS An interesting read

Next time someone asks why Android is superior to iOS, point them to this app. I didn't realize just how limited some of the capabilities of iOS really are.
