Android vs. IOS: Comparing features & functions

  1. 1. OPERATING SYSTEM CASE STUDY ON ANDROID vs. iOS This document provides the case study of the two most controversial and the most evolving Operating System of mobile ANDROID and iOS. This document also explains our thought process on supporting iOS and Android, and which factors are making the biggest impact in this evolving decision. 2013  Nepaul Alphonse (113)  Vishal Bhatt (123)  Dipesh Bhatiya (002)  Dakshay Sanghvi (124)
  2. 2. AnDroid vs iOS ANDROID:  Android is a Linux-based operating system designed primarily for touch screen mobile devices such as smart phones and tablet computers.  Android is an open mobile phone platform that was developed by Google and, later, by the Open Handset Alliance. Google defines Android as a "software stack" for mobile phones.  Android is open source and Google releases the code under the Apache License. iOS:  IOS is an Objective C based Operating System.  IOS (previously iPhone OS) is a mobile operating system developed and distributed by Apple Inc. It was originally named the iPhone OS, but was renamed to the iOS in June, 2009. The iOS currently runs on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.  Like modern desktop operating systems, iOS uses a graphical user interface, or GUI. However, since it is a mobile operating system, iOS is designed around touch screen input, rather than a keyboard and mouse. For example, applications, or "apps," can be opened by a single tap, rather than a double-click. Different screens can be viewed by swiping your finger across the screen, rather than clicking on open windows.

  5. 5. AnDroid vs iOS Round 1: Siri vs. Google Now  Siri has greatly improved. Apple is aiming to make the virtual assistant more than just a novelty. Siri's newest features include her ability to speak sports scores and standings.  In addition to keeping you on top of your favorite teams, Siri can also make a reservation for you at your favorite restaurant via OpenTable. And movie fans rejoice: Siri can let you know what movies are playing at your local theater.  Despite Siri's new additions, though, she is no match for Google Now.  Google Now gets to know you personally. It is designed to be truly helpful. In addition to providing you with sports scores Google Now scans your calendar and lets you know when to leave so you'll make your next appointment on time  Google Now is much more advanced than Siri. It can do so much more and truly gets to know you. Point for Android Google: 1 Apple: 0 Google Now Apple Siri
  6. 6. AnDroid vs iOS Round 2: Google Maps vs. Apple Maps  When we first found out Apple was developing its own Maps app, we were excited. Then we actually saw the maps, and we were completely underwhelmed.  Apple has a long way to go if it wants Maps to be on par with Google. Apple's Maps don't include walking directions or transit directions and that's a big let down for a lot of users.  Google just recently revamped their Maps to include 3D mapping and offline maps. The offline maps are a killer feature; they are useful when you have no service.  Offline Maps, transit, and walking directions give Google a point in this category. Point for Android Google: 2 Apple: 0 Google Maps Apple Maps
  7. 7. AnDroid vs iOS Round 3: Android Beam vs. Shared Photo Stream  Android Beam is an easy way to share videos and photos. Besides sharing photos and videos, Android Beam lets you send pretty much any type of file from one phone to another. As long as your device supports NFC capabilities, you can beam away.  HowStuffWorks spoke with Google and it told them, "You can sum up Beam as this: it's a feature that enables just about any type of proximity-based interaction."  Apple's Shared Photo Streams allows you to share only the photos you want, with whoever you choose. Think of it as Apple's private version of Instagram. Once you take a photo, it is uploaded to your Stream. You allow users to access certain photos.  Google's Beam wins out on this one too folks. Photo Stream is pretty cool but being able to share more than just photos with another device is awesome. Point for Android Google: 3 Apple: 0 NFC Shared Photo Stream
  8. 8. AnDroid vs iOS Round 4: Safari vs. Google Chrome  Safari's new feature, iCloud Tabs, now keeps your tabs in sync across your Mac, iPod, iPhone, and iPad. Safari also saves web pages, in addition to just links, with the offline Reading List feature.  Under the hood, Google vastly improved how its browser plays with the phone's hardware. Google's browser brings better HTML5 video support and improves performance, CPU, and memory efficiency.  Google's Chrome browser is made for fluid and responsive interaction with Web content. Chrome already synced your tabs across multiple devices.  This matchup is pretty even. Safari is a robust and well-designed browser. Chrome is very good and works across multiple platforms.  We're giving Google a point on this one because it allows you to change your default browser and that is a killer feature. Point for Android Google: 4 Apple: 0 Google Chrome Safari
  9. 9. AnDroid vs iOS Round 5: Google's Camera and Gallery vs. Apple's Camera with Panorama  Photo quality depends on which device you have, so we won't compare that.  But Google has added some neat features to its actual camera app that makes the experience more pleasant. For example, when you focus on an object in Camera, a new animation gives you feedback on your focus state.  Apple's newest camera addition is a panoramic feature. Panorama lets you capture up to 240 degrees in one shot. You can even go vertically. Apple says it has made sure the hardware and software work together to help you get a nice high-res picture.  This one is a tough comparison. Apple's camera takes great pics because the hardware and software work together so well. Google can't achieve that same feat because they typically don't make the camera. Point for iOS Google: 4 Apple: 1 Google Camera iOS’s camera with Panorama
  10. 10. AnDroid vs iOS Round 6: Google Notifications vs. Apple's Notification Center  Google's Notifications are awesome. It gives us quick and easy access to brightness, airplane mode, Bluetooth, data usage, and pretty much everything else we care about.  Apple's Notification Center on the other hand is just a hub for missed alerts. The feature we use the most is weather. Even with iOS 6's new social additions, Notification Center is still pretty boring.  Google gets the point for this one. Point for Android Google: 5 Apple: 1 Android Notifications iOS Notifications
  11. 11. AnDroid vs iOS Round 7: Apple's new Phone app vs. Google's Phone app  Apple has greatly improved its phone app. iOS 6 introduces a completely redesigned phone app. Now when you decline an incoming call you can instantly reply with a text message, or set a callback reminder.  Google has also added some neat features to its phone app. You can play voicemail messages directly from the Notification Center when you miss a call. A new notification lets you return the call or reply by SMS with a single touch. And as a result of Google's Project Butter, the dial pad is more responsive.  The features are pretty even on this one. We'll give them both a point for this round. Point for Android and iOS both Google: 6 Apple: 2
  12. 12. AnDroid vs iOS Round 8: Google's App Store vs. Apple's App Store  Apple's App Store has over 700,000 apps. The store is supreme. Developers want to make apps for Apple and others are struggling to keep up.  With iOS 6, Apple has completely redesigned the look and feel of its App Store, iTunes Store, and iBooks store. It's now much easier to browse the stores and find exactly what you're looking for. We really like the cross device compatibility.  Google revamped its app store, Google Play, a while back and bundled books, music, movies and TV shows into it. We like Google Play but are still unimpressed by the selection and quality of apps. Google has come a long way but still has a ways to go. We do love the Smart App Updates feature, which ensures that only the parts of an application that have changed will be downloaded.  Apple is the king of Apps. They get the point for this round. Point for iOS Google: 6 Apple: 3 Google Play App Store
  13. 13. AnDroid vs iOS Round 9: Accessibility features  Accessibility features make it easier for people with vision, hearing, learning, and mobility disabilities to better use their devices.  With iOS 6 Apple has significantly improved its already stellar accessibility features. They have added a new feature called Guided Access. Apple puts it best: "Guided Access helps students with disabilities such as autism remain on task and focused on content. It allows a parent, teacher, or administrator to limit an iOS device to one app by disabling the Home button, as well as restrict touch input on certain areas of the screen."  Google has made accessibility a focus in Jelly Bean. Jelly Bean lets blind users use a "Gesture Mode" to navigate the OS using touch and swipe gestures in combination with speech output. Google has also added TalkBack, a screen reader for Android which supports gestures to trigger actions, to navigate applications, and traverse text.  Google has come a long way but Apple's accessibility features are robust and the company has put a lot of time and work into it. Point for iOS Google: 6 Apple: 4 Gesture Mode Guided Access
  14. 14. AnDroid vs iOS Round 10: FaceTime vs. Google Hangout  FaceTime is another Apple novelty. We used it for a while when we first got our iPhone 4 two years ago. But after the novelty wore off we find ourselves rarely using the feature.  FaceTime is one of those features that's nice to have but isn't a necessity.  We feel similarly about Google+ Hangout but the features are just better. Hangout lets you see live video streams of all participants in a Hangout. In addition, you can chat with up to nine friends at once.  Point for Google because they allow you to chat with up to nine people at once from your phone. Point for Android Google: 7 Apple: 4 FaceTime Google Hangout
  15. 15. AnDroid vs iOS So what's the score? Final Score: Google: 7 Apple: 4 Conclusion:  Overall Google's Android OS is much more robust and feature packed than Apple's.  Jelly Bean's updates are focused around speed. Google wanted to drastically improve the performance throughout the system and for the most part they achieved that.  Apple has polished its operating system and added a lot of nifty features but it is still struggling to keep up with Android.
