iOS is more “INTUITIVE”
Many people argue that anything
Apple makes provides a more intuitive
and easily-learnable experience for
just about anybody. It’s true
Apple care more about design
standards. Though Google has taken
many steps in recent years, it’s clear
that Apple cares about it more than
pretty much any other tech company

iOS 7 introduced Control Center;

settings, adjust brightness and
control music with quick swipe

time but the big difference is that
on Android it comes down from

tap to get to.

Comprehensive and attractive

On Android double tapping
the home button brings up a
vertical list of apps with
previews of content.
Apple’s version sets up on the
apps in a left-to-right list
instead, and gives the previews
far more screen real estate. To
quit an app just flick an app’s
thumbnail up and away to the
top of the screen

One of Android's strengths has
been its rich notification system
pull down the notification
drawer; and you are given the
latest missed call, tweets,
calendar items and so on---.

The iPhone’s Camera has
always been a strong Point; and
the latest devices are no
exception. The latest native
camera app is clean and
incredibly simple to use.
Cameras on Android are
generally speaking, competent
but not yet exceptional. Big
promises from Samsung and
HTC don’t always pan out in real

• Apple has killer design engineers whose job is
to make sure you’re going to love the interface
and how it all works together.
•But, say, you’d like more control over how
widgets appear or what the interface looks like,
i.e. defining them according to our needs, in that
case, Android is your better Choice.

In this area Android shines.
Although you can certainly
move apps around and make
folders on the iPhone, the OS
doesn’t have anything like
Android’s ability to create
shortcuts to contacts right on
the home screen.
Customization and Widgets
WINNER: Android, iOS could learn a thing or two from Google’s OS in
But, the enhanced multitasking in iOS (and Android) has made
widgets less necessary over time

Although software is king, hardware
design plays a huge role in one’s
purchasing decision. What Android has
wide range of form factors, including
sliders and slabs in multiple screen
sizes. Some favorite designs include
Samsung Nexus S with its Super
AMOLED display, the HTC one.
iPhone with Its super sharp Retina display is second to none in
terms of resolution and clarity, and the glass and steel design
just feels more luxurious than anything in the Android camp.

FINAL THOUGHT / CONCLUSION
Although iOS and Android are extremely competitive in out-of-the-box
experiences, we would be neglectful not to mention that Android’s user
experience is very customizable, where iOS 7 is not.
You may not be able to add fingerprint scanner to your HTC One, but you
can totally change how the phone looks by using custom icons, widgets, lock
screens, and so on. It one are where Android definitely has the inflexible iOS
But other than this, it’s not a clean sweep anywhere, Almost anything you
would want to do with a Smartphone can be done well on either platform –
Something that was not the case a year or two ago.
Lastly…. The best way to answer the age old questions is to ask “Who is
using iOS or Android ”? Show your device! If you like it… use it!
