This may perhaps be the reason why Android owns 78% of the mobile marketshare compared to iOS at 17%.
iOS is an exceptional mobile operating system which brings ease of use through its simplicity. All Apple products live in a comfortable ecosystem due to its uniform design, making it easier for manufacturers and developers to make products and apps for iPhones. Developers don't have to go through the hassle of adapting their programs to various screen sizes like on Android; this results in newer and better apps releasing on iPhones first. Additionally, iOS is by far the smoothest, most optimized mobile operating system there is. With an astonishing camera, it is able to capture pictures under any conditions with just the right lighting and display. Having said that, iPhones are not quite there when it comes to customizability and personalization; unlike Android which let’s you take full control. With an iPhone, the user is restricted from doing certain tasks; the operating system is confined with certain limits which disallow users to freely explore their phone to its potential. This is an important deciding factor for individuals looking to buy a smartphone.

However, there are several key differences which may lead an individual to choose one over the other. If you’re an Apple enthusiast, meaning you already own a Macbook or an iPod/iPad; the appropriate choice would be to buy an iPhone for it’s profound ecosystem and smooth software. If you want to truly be able to do whatever you wish with your device, Android is the right way to go; provided that you will be sacrificing the optimization and smooth experience iOS provides. Nevertheless, whether you buy an iPhone or an Android, you will be satisfied.
