How to Choose Between iPhone and Android Smartphone

posted by Chris Valentine

Most smartphones are based on iPhone or Android. How will you choose the phone that suits you best? The following steps will tell you what you need to consider before choosing.

1. Understand the differences: Android and iPhone are similar. But there are some differences.

Do you want to change the appearance of your mobile phone at times? If you are not satisfied with the application included with your mobile phone, would you like to use a third-party application? Do you rely heavily on Google’s application suite (drives, Gmail, Google Maps)? If so, consider buying an Android phone. 

Do you want a smart phone that is elegant and does not affect its functions? Do you rely on Apple’s application suite? If so, consider buying an Apple iPhone.

2. Choose the screen size that best suits you. Do you prefer small, medium or large screen size? The iPhone comes in some standard sizes, such as the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and 5S, or the larger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. In contrast, Android devices come in a variety of sizes. This is from compact to large and various full-screen phones.

3. Determine how important the hardware is to you. Do you like the latest and best specifications? Do you want to innovate with ultra-fast processing speed and cameras with megapixel load? If so, you can consider buying flagship phones of various brands. The latest flagship smartphones price in UK will be more expensive.

4. Consider whether UI simplicity is more important to you. It may not have dazzling processor speed or huge RAM, but its performance is excellent. Compared with Android, the iPhone’s UI is easy to use. While Android has a higher degree of freedom and can be freely defined.

5. Consider the design of smart phones. There is no doubt that no smartphone is better than all other smartphones. Each model has its own advantages and disadvantages. The appearance and beauty of the mobile phone are as important as its hardware specifications.

6.Try using the phone of your choice.

Keyboard. Try using the iPhone keyboard and Android keyboard to enter some words. Both are virtual keyboards with physical feedback. But you may find that one is more suitable for your fingers and typing style than the other. 

Media: The transfer of media files (music, movies) to iPhone is completed through iTunes (software installed on the computer. It takes some time to get used to). While Android only needs to connect USB cable to the computer to accept files. The quality of audio depends on the specific device. 

Camera: Similar to music, Android photos can be transferred from the device to the computer through USB cable. While iPhone photos need iTunes or other special software. The quality of the picture depends on the specific device. 

Radio: Some Android phones have built-in FM radios. While Apple is equipped with applications that can simulate radio functions. 

Operation: The iPhone interface uses a single “Home” button, while the application interface displays a virtual “Back” button. Android’s “back” button is physical. It has another useful “detail” button. This displays advanced options. If you are never looking for any advanced features, you will not use this button. But it will often come in handy.

7. Determine whether you are satisfied with the planned updates to the expected operating system. Some people want to be at the forefront of technology. They want to have the latest and biggest updates. Some people are satisfied that their mobile phones have been updated. While others simply ignore the update. Consider which category you belong to, and then choose suitable smart phones.
