Google Android's Smartphone Superiority Over Apple's Ios

1034 words - 5 pages

If you are a dedicated iPhone consumer you must realize that you have basically bought the same phone over and over again. It is time to trash the iPhone and get a new Android. Although Apple’s tyrannical iPhones took the cake by far in the beginnings of the smartphone revolution, Google Android soon came in to assert its dominance over the now pathetic iPhone, much like an omega-wolf taking down an alpha-wolf to become the new leader of the pack. With Android’s wide variety of smartphones, like the well-known Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One, consumers have more options than ever. Also, the Android phones themselves are unequivocally better when it comes to customizability. On Apple’s part, software features are severely lagging; Whereas, Android has an abundance of features, including the ability to run two apps simultaneously. On top of that, Apple negatively affects its user’s productivity while android does not hurt its user’s productivity.
Even though, Apple iPhones have hypnotic, tantalizing, half-eaten apples on the backside of them, Android’s wide variety of phones and prices make it more consumer friendly. Currently Apple’s flagship smartphone is the Apple iPhone 5S. Flagship: the best or most important thing owned or in this case produced by a particular organization or company. Another comparison is when buying a new phone with a plan. The iPhone 5S has an outrageous starting price of $199.99; whereas, Android has a multitude of devices and prices starting at $0. To sum things up, you can get a better phone for a lower price by buying an Android. Android’s large variety of flagship smartphones include, but are not limited to: the Motorola Droid, LG Optimus G Pro, HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4, and Samsung Galaxy Note 3, unlike Apple which only has the iPhone 5,5C and 5S. These Android devices range from Flip-Phone/Smartphones, smartphone watches, regular smartphones and Phablets, Phablets: Phone tablets. All, excluding the Samsung Galaxy Note, have starting prices under $199.99. Something to think about is that, if you are not able to afford a costly iPhone, you can get a free Android phone with any wireless contract and download a launcher at the play store that will make your phones operating system look like an iPhone’s operating system.
The customizability of Android, in comparison to the iPhone, is like comparing a rich man to a peddler. Android is rich with customizability options like the ability to root, which basically gives you the privilege to do whatever you want to your phone by the way of software customization(Black Dog Media Limited 96). If you are not at all knowledgeable of how to operate a smartphone, most Android smartphones have an available “easy” mode on it, which makes the phone as easy to use as a Jitterbug. However, Apple, the peddler in this circumstance, has few customizability features which are limited to folders, home and lock screen background changes, a favorite’s bar at the bottom and changing the order...
