Both of them can provide a great experience to the user, but there are many differences between these products leading people to started big discussions about which one is better.

One main point that leads people to buy an Android Phone is the price of a device. Android Phones differ from iPhones in that they are cheaper, yet they still can show a great performance and the same settings. The amount of money that people spend buying an iPhone is enough to buy two good new Android Phones, which definitely crash the apple on this scenario. Also, by having an open operational system, developers can share information to solve issues in programming new apps, reducing the cost of the system. Assuming this, Android OS is more compatible with new apps, because people do not need to wait for big updates of apps from the main developers of the OS once they can get it directly from small developers. However, this open system can lead to security problems once people are installing unofficial apps on their phones. These apps can be used as spy ones, stealing important information like passwords and bank account details. Nevertheless, people have a lot of options of choice.

However, in contrast to Android Phones, iPhones can be really expensive not offering much more than Android ones like I mentioned above. But regardless of the price, many people choose to buy an iPhone assuming that it has a better OS. The operational system from an iPhone, the iOS, is really more intuitive and easy to use. Users are really comfortable about the way how the iOS flows into screens and apps because many of them are used to it since the first iPhone came out. Also iOS differ from Android OS in that it has a closed OS. Every app to iPhones need to be downloaded directly from the Apple store, which is the app store to iPhones. So developers cannot change structural settings on the iOS. All this things makes the system safer and stable, it is unusual to see crashed apps and system failures such as security breaks. Obviously by not allowing changes in the OS, developers can create apps specifically to iPhones guaranteeing that it will play in every iPhone with the same iOS version. Developers don’t need to worry about the changes made by another brands like in Android Phones. However, by having less options of choice, iPhone consumers are tied to the few models available in the market. Like an apple can just be green or red, iPhones can be found in less options. If a person does not like the design or

    In my opinion and from a few people that I’ve asked why do they think people prefer iPhone over galaxy, they answered, “Oh, because it’s easier to use than android, and in my opinion I think that people use iPhone because they aren’t smart enough to understand how to use an android so I think that android is for smarter people and iPhone is for lazy people that just don’t have the time to try to understand the logic behind a android. What people also like about the iPhone is the design of them most of the people just like how the iPhone looks compared to the Galaxy.
