One argument we might not be seeing the end soon is the beef between Android and iPhone users about which OS is the best. Although both operating systems have their Pros and Cons, which is actually the best.
iPhone VS Android
Alright let take a quick example here, Android users boast of very flexible and customizable options, multitasking capability, and of course Google Assistant. On the other side, iPhone users brag about their new home screen features, customizable app icons, FaceTime, and of course their iMessage.
Here are the 5 features that iPhone users used to surpass Android users.
1. Beautiful Widgets
I know it hard to admit but if we were being completely honest here, the iPhone does come with some very beautiful looking widgets. Apple allows developers to create apps with different sizes which users can position anywhere on the home screen.
2. Seamless Video Quality
FaceTime one of the iPhone’s major features which Android has been really trying so hard to beat but “things aren’t always what they seem to be.” Although they tried with their Duo app, it wasn’t still enough. All you have to do to get started is simply power on your iPhone and you’re good to go.
What makes FaceTime very awesome is the fact that it is very simple to set up, unlike other apps, you don’t have to go onto any third-party app to get or sync your contact. It is for this reason that FaceTime is the Go-To for families and friends.
Now, this is Android’s biggest competition when it comes to iPhone features, and I don’t really think they’ll be getting that feature anytime soon because it Apple’s default messaging service. iMessage also syncs across all your Apple devices and comes with a lot of interesting features you could play around with.
Nothing beats that feeling when you get a message and you see that chat bubble turn blue indicating the person on the other side is also an iPhone user. It doesn’t end there, you can also then chat over Wi-Fi and exchange media files easily with a very high-resolution.
4. Wireless EarBuds And Headphones
Pairing those wireless AirPods with your iPhone is a feeling that never gets old, and another interesting feature is the ability you get to actually use those same AirPods with your Apple watch or mac without having to pair them again.
There has been some very good competition on this side talking about the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy Buds which actually came close to giving that AirPods feel, but failed in range and syncing across multiple devices. Android’s best bet on this is Google’s Pixel Buds 2 which actually came close to recreating that AirPods feel but didn’t.
5. Easy Backup and Restore
But Android on the other hand I must say is not very encouraging, I mean this restore feature is supposed to reduce the time it takes to restore your files, but after going through all the logging in, crashes, settings, and all that, you’ll notice it still takes considerably more time.
With all these said, it is worth knowing that Android does have its own amazing features with which it beats the iPhone hands-down, but that a story for another day.
