Apple Vs. Android

Apple: Everything You Need To Know

The tiny company that famously started in a garage has blossomed into one of the largest and most widely recognized conglomerates in the world.

Those who are loyal to Apple will say that it’s just downright better — the iPhone is compatible with all Mac devices and iOS systems and allows you to curate your own suite of products as you see fit.

Here are some of the most common features to consider about Apple, and specifically the iPhones:

  • Choices: From a hardware standpoint, there are a few different shapes, sizes, and models from which to choose. But other than your color variations, the choices of each iPhone model are relatively limited.
  • Compatibility: All iPhones run on the iOS operating system, a system which is uniquely designed by and for Apple devices. That makes integration between the iPhone and other Apple devices (like the iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV) fairly seamless and consistent.
  • Camera: The iPhone has long been heralded for its camera, which has always been ahead of the curve as far as capabilities and capturing detail. The biggest advantage of the Apple cameras is that, while they may not be as good as a select few, they are always consistently good.
  • Apps: More than 2.1 million available from App Store
  • Browser: Safari
  • Extra Stuff: Siri voice commands, in-person support at the Apple Store, FaceTime video calls

Android: Everything You Need To Know

The term “Android” refers to just about any phone that isn’t made by Apple these days.

The Android operating system is currently (as of April, 2018) on its eighth iteration and has made great strides in order to catch up to the paths paved by Apple.

A few of the key features that users look for in Android phones include:

  • Choices: Selection is one of the biggest pluses that Android has going for it. Major phone manufacturers include Samsung, Motorola, LG, HTC, Sony, and Google.
  • Compatibility: Android phones are largely compatible with just about any PC, tablet, or other device through a simple USB connection.
  • Camera: Android phones have improved throughout recent years, and the biggest hit the system has seen on the camera front came with the newest Google Pixel 2. The 8-megapixel camera has been praised as one of the best to ever hit a mobile device.
  • Apps: More than 3.5 million available from the Google Play store
  • Browser: Google Chrome
  • Extra Stuff: Google Maps, universal charging cables, completely customizable
