Iphone Vs Android Essay

There has been a hot debate for quite some time over which phone, iPhone or Android, is

the best. Some people say that Android is more customizable whilst some people say that iPhone

is easier to use. There are some obvious distinctions between the two that might make or break

one’s decision.

One of the first things that is noticeable between an iPhone and an Android is that they

differ in looks from each other. Apple, the company that made iPhones, have sort of a

“signature” look to them – the designs are very simple and elegant. Android, on the other hand,

can and will vary aesthetically from phone to phone. Apple has always kept the original four-to-

five inch display, until recently with the new iPhone 6 unveiling a whopping

Price is another factor that dictates the difference between the two phones. iPhones are

generally more expensive than some Androids, with the iPhone 6s starting at $649, and the

iPhone 6s Plus starting at $749. The more modern phones have the same price as the iPhones –

the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge plus, starting at $799.99 and the Samsung Galaxy Note5, starting at

$699.99. The difference between the two companies is that since Android offers more of a

selection, the prices are going to be lower. The newer Android phones coming out are going to

be priced similarly to Apple if it is a name brand – Samsung, HTC, LG, Google, Sony, etc. There

are exceptions however that do not follow the price-to-quality ratio. Some of these phones

include the OnePlus One, which has similar specifications as compared to the Samsung Galaxy

S6, but is only $299 for the 64 GB version; Asus Zenfone 2, which is also comparative to the

Galaxy S6, but is only $299 for the 64 GB version, and many other phones that are

iPhone’s processing power and RAM is also behind compared to Android. The iPhone 6s Plus

has 2 GB of RAM and a dual-core Apple A9 processor with clock speeds of 1.84 GHz. The

Samsung Galaxy S6 has 3 GB of RAM and two dual-core processors: Cortex-A53 and A57,

which deems it an octa-core with total clock speeds of 3.6 GHz. So not only is the Samsung

Galaxy S6 faster than the iPhone 6s Plus, it is also ninety dollars cheaper. The thing that wins

iPhones over Android is the software. The software is so fluid and constantly updated, iPhones

do not have a need for high quality hardware. They run just as fast as Android does, if not faster

at times, despite the lower hardware quality. The last thing that is obviously between the two is

the expandable memory. Ever since Apple’s release of the iPhone One, they never bothered to

put in an expandable SD card slot. Almost all Android phones have this, with the exception of

the newer ones.

All in all, iPhones and Android are strictly based on personal preference. If you like a

simpler, ready-to-go, and friendlier user experience, choose iPhone. However if you are one
