Veridic Technologies Pvt Ltd :- With the growing popularity of mobile phones today, developers are scrambling to perfect their mobile OS along with hardware development. Two mobile OS that many users like to compare are android and IOS as both come from the two most distinguished technology giants: Google and Apple, respectively.
Obviously, the usual question is, which one is better? First, let’s examine iOS for the iPhone – the game changer in the mobile phone industry. Apple should be credited for giving rise to the new breed of cell phones that changed the way we think about these devices. Not only are they capable of text messaging and calling, they’re the new multi-media devices that also allow us to go on-line wirelessly. There is no doubt that the iOS UI is the most gorgeous UI around. The capacitive touch gives it an even smoother effect as you slide your finger to violin around the menu.
Since the hardware and software both come from Apple, they’re seamlessly integrated and gives the device an impressive speed and stability. Exactly like any Apple product in the market, the IOS is a closed system. That’s, users have a lot less control over the customization of their device, unless they resort to other means like jail breaking and unlocking, which ultimately voids the warranty. Speaking of unlocking, one problem with the iPhone is you’re stuck with only one carrier. Lots of users have tried unlocking their iPhone only to discover that their files are deleted each time they plug it in a pc.
And on the other hand, android is an open source OS, meaning users have more control over their handset. This allows mobile manufacturers to release handsets powered by android unlike the IOS that’s exclusive for the iPhone. It’s also easier for developers to program almost any applications for the android. Other handsets can even be over-clocked to give it a higher speed. The android is also nicely integrated to Google’s products and switching from one network to another is a lot simpler. Roid based phones were documented to be buggy and battery hogging. Other users complain about annoying error messages from applications that frequently crash. Google claims this problem will be solved by simply upgrading to the most recent version of android. At the end, it’s the consumers which should decide which handset is best for them. Each company clearly targets a certain market section.
