6 reasons why the iPhone beats Android (P) - Alba24

Time 02/10/2022 By myhoneybakedfeedback

I like Android phones, but when friends ask me for my opinion on which phone to buy, I tend to recommend the iPhone over Android. Here's why!

Let me start by saying that I love Android phones. I like the variety of hardware and the multiple customization options of the software. The Samsung Galaxy S10 and Google Pixel 3 are particularly special and have a sleek design and some of the best cameras around. But despite all that, I always end up recommending people I know to buy an iPhone, not a Samsung.

Notice I didn't say iOS is far above Android. The reason to go the Apple route is that the software and hardware complement each other perfectly. The iPhone also works great with other Apple gadgets, including Macs, Apple Watch, and Apple TV.

Here are the best reasons why an iPhone is better than an Android phone!

1. iPhones are faster

If you're considering buying a newer iPhone, know that the A12 Bionic chip inside is better than anything in the Android camp. The gap between the two brands is smaller than it was in the past, however, thanks to the new processors used in the latest Android phones. We also found that the latest iPhones can transcode video faster. We ran a test, and an iPhone XS did it in just 39 seconds, compared to nearly two and a half minutes for a Samsung Galaxy S10. This difference in speed also makes you enjoy apps at their true worth.

2. Better hardware and software integration

In the past there were plenty of examples that proved Apple's advantage over Android systems. Even though this technology has also evolved a lot, there are still things that only Apple can do.

The latest example is Face ID, which securely connects you to your iPhone using a 3D scan of your face via a TrueDepth sensor. Other companies have also tried to copy Face ID, but none have succeeded.

Animoji and Memoji are other examples of Apple hardware and software that work perfectly together.

3. The easiest to use

Despite all the promises from Android phone makers to streamline their themes, the iPhone remains by far the easiest phone to use. Some may complain about the lack of change in the look and feel of iOS over the years, but I consider it a plus that it works pretty much the same as it did ten years ago. Of course, Apple has made improvements over the years, such as Siri and Control Center. With iOS 11, Apple added the ability to edit Live Photos and organize files through the Files app. Expect improvements to continue on iOS this fall!

4. OS updates when you want them

This is going to hurt Android fans a bit. As of February 2019, 83% of iOS devices introduced in the last 4 years were running iOS 12, according to Apple. This gave users the ability to use older devices to their full potential. If you own an iPhone , you can update it to the latest version of iOS or close to it, depending on how old the phone is. And the company promises that this dynamic won't change anytime soon.

5. The best apps

Now that both iOS and Android have millions of apps in their stores, the arms race is over, right? Not quite, not exactly. The iPhone is still favored by developers as the launch platform for the hottest apps.

The Google Play store is a kind of Netflix of virtual stores: it receives many applications, but usually they are released first in the version for iOS. A prime example is the famous Fortnite, which switched from iOS to Android after a while, and even then it was exclusive to Samsung. Other apps like Super Mario Run and HQ Trivia followed suit. It also took a few months to reach Android. The parade of apps that were available for iPhone earlier than Android include Monument Valley 2, Affinity Photo, and Snapchat.

The message is clear: For those who don't want to be treated as second-class app users, the iPhone is still king.

6. Apple Pay

Between Android Pay and Samsung Pay, Apple wins hands down. Apple Pay is the most popular mobile payment method. It is also very simple to use. All you have to do to use Apple Pay is bring your phone close to the payment terminal and then tap your finger on the Touch ID sensor. With the latest models you just need to double-tap the side button and then look at the phone to use Face ID and make the payment.
