Although it is difficult to pretend to reach an end point in the discussion of Android against iOS , it is always interesting to delve into the arguments that have going for them defenders of the two systems. The basis for our selection comes from a specialized in Android, and although some of the items on the list may be more or less questionable, we have highlighted five that seem pretty solid though, of course, some may not be convinced. We show that, in our view, are 5 tricks undoubted operating system in favor of Google, and have much of the blame for its unstoppable growth.
Clearly, one of the attractions of iOS is, without doubt, the appeal themselves have devices Apple . Both the iPhone and the iPad, are devices with an undeniable aesthetic value and technical specifications which are always at the highest level. The fact remains, in any case, that among the wide variety of smartphones, and tablets phablets running Android are devices that can stand up to the products of Apple , both in design and hardware, with unassailable that we always have more options to choose from.
Although in regards to tablets has opened some range of options with the launch of iPad mini (and perhaps in the near future also do a mini iPhone), the variety of devices Apple is quite limited and prices are high. True, you can choose between different models of iPad , for example, and spend more or less money but honestly, the prices at which we face range from high to very high. Even without entering the industry buoyant low-cost, between devices Android there is much more variety of prices: we can choose high-end devices, with prices and characteristics similar or superior to those of Apple or choose other midrange pro, spec techniques more modest, but are also more affordable.
No doubt that the design of iOS is extremely careful and is itself a point in his favor. Apps, however, has on his side the advantage of personalization and not just in terms of appearance: plus a huge variety widgets, animated wallpapers, interactive, and other options to modify our home screens at will, the operating system of Google allows the installation of a number of ROMs that allow us to adapt every little detail of our devices to our liking.
More free games and applications
Until recently, the App Store had the advantage of having a greater number of applications, but with the steady growth of Google Play superiority on iOS in this sense is over. Although in regard to tablets should be recognized that Apple still has the advantage of a greater number of applications optimized for them, Google also working to cut this difference. In any case, Android has a trick where it appears difficult for iOS will come to pass: the offer of free games and applications, whether ad-supported or under the freemium model, is much broader in Google Play it in the App Store. Even get to take the case to see applications for Android are free and for iOS are extra.
Integration with Google products and services
This may be a controversial point, but in view of the importance of different services Google and take advantage of many of its competitors in some ways, we feel that there is every reason to include it. If we have any doubts, the small chaos generated maps Apple in the latest version of iOS, and that had the huge demand for Google as were available in the App Store seems a perfect example of this.
