Android Vs iPhone?? The Dispute Ends Today!

Smartphones have become a major part of our lives since their invention in the 21st century.
With the advent of smartphones came an array of operating systems which include the Blackberry OS, Android OS, iPhone OS, Windows OS and so many others. But of all these, two major operating systems have managed to remain ahead of others, the iPhone OS and the Android OS. 

Now the major arguments over the years is which dominates which, Honestly I am a fan of the android OS, but that doesn't mean I resent the iPhone OS, matter of fact, I actually respect its beauty, speed and power. But everyone has a different opinion on what they want in a smartphone which is determined in a large way by the OS that the phone uses.
Below, I am going to highlight a few points about the two OS', then you can make your choice in which is the better.

• Security And Privacy

All software companies, Apple included, sometimes make headlines for high-profile security bugs, and it’s inherently difficult to maintain your privacy when you’re carrying around an Internet-connected device that can always pinpoint where you are. But compared with Google, Apple does take greater pains to keep its devices secure and your data private. Quick updates delivered directly by Apple with no interference from your phone carrier means that when serious security problems do come up you can get a fix for them as soon as one is available. Apple services like iMessage, FaceTime, and iCloud make extensive use of encryption to protect data traveling to and from your phone and data stored on Apple’s servers.
Though Apple does collect and analyze user data to study behavior and improve its products, the company anonymizes that data so that it can identify trends among everyone who uses its products without being able to see how any individual person is using their phone. By contrast, a report by Vanderbilt engineering professor Douglas Schmidt and commissioned by the trade group Digital Context Now shows that Android collects large amounts of data about browsing habits, location, and app usage whether or not you’re actively using the phone (or Google’s apps).
Winner: iPhone

• Pricing

If  you want an iPhone, you have eight choices: the $349 iPhone SE, the $449 iPhone 6s, the $549 iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 7, the $669 iPhone 7 Plus, the $699 iPhone 8, the $799 iPhone 8 Plus, and the $999 iPhone X. 
There are more than half a dozen good Android phones that cost less than $250. You can get a solid handset like the Moto G5 Plus — which has a 5.2-inch, 1080p display; a snappy Snapdragon 625 CPU; and a good 12-MP camera — for just $239. Available on MetroPCS, the $130 ZTE Blade Z Max has a 6-inch, full-HD display and lasts more than 11 hours on a charge.
Androids are relatively much cheaper than the iPhones, of course excluding the Samsung devices.
Winner: Android

• Hardware (Strength and Durability)

Hardware is the first place where the differences between the iPhone and Android become clear. You can always check the iPhone stats.
Only Apple makes iPhones, so it has extremely tight control over how the software and hardware work together. On the other hand, Google offers the Android software to many phone makers, including Samsung, HTC, LG, and Motorola. Because of that, Android phones vary widely in size, weight, features, and quality.
Premium-priced Android phones tend to be as good as the iPhone in terms of hardware quality, but cheaper Android options are more prone to problems. Of course iPhones can have hardware issues, too, but they're generally higher quality.
If you're buying an iPhone, you just need to pick a model. Because many companies make Android devices, you have to pick both a brand and a model, which can be a bit confusing.
Some may prefer the greater choice Android offers, but others appreciate Apple's simplicity and quality.

• Software

Under this category, we are going to feature a few subtopics to be able to pin point our arguments on all areas.
  • App Compatibilities: iPhones have a nice array of software compatibilities (applications that can run on the iPhone OS, but it is no way compared to the android OS, where applications can run on a large variety of platforms). Winner: Android
  • Speed: Straight to the point on this, it is a worldwide fact that iPhones are relatively faster than their Android counterparts. Starting up applications, switching between tasks, heavy usage, the iPhone gladly stands out in this category. Winner: iPhone
  • Software Updates: The biggest advantage iOS has over Android is its software updates: Apple generally supports new iPhones and iPads with iOS updates for five to six years after their release date, and all of those devices get the same updates at the same time. You get new features and apps, support for new image and video formats and security protocols, and patches for both online security threats and flaws that could allow people to get data from your phone. Android users aren't that lucky, because software updates usually don't come fast if at all. Winner: iPhone.
  • Storage: Although you can’t expand the internal storage of an iPhone—what you buy is what you’re stuck with—many Android phones have a microSD card slot that lets you expand the amount of internal storage available for apps, photos, and movies, and you can use Google Drive space to store everything from photos to documents. Apple’s iCloud service can also be used to offload photos and videos, and iOS offers a few other tricks (like deleting rarely used apps and games without losing your saved data) to save space.               Winner: Tie

• General Beauty

Critics, enthusiasts and smartphone users all agree on one thing, the iPhone is a beautiful device. This brand was created to be a luxury phone. Therefore, the design is futuristic and the iPhone is made of premium materials. This results in an exceedingly attractive phone. Along with the visual appeal comes a very high price tag. If you want a beautiful phone but don’t mind paying a high price tag, then iPhone is your ideal pick.
Winner: iPhone

• Artificial Intelligence Assistance

The next frontier of smartphone features and functionality will be driven by artificial intelligence and voice interfaces. On this front, Android has a clear lead.
Google Assistant, the most prominent artificial intelligence/intelligent assistant on Android, is extremely powerful. It uses everything Google knows about you and the world to make life easier for you. For instance, if your Google Calendar knows that you're meeting someone at 5:30 and that traffic is terrible, Google Assistant can send you a notification telling you to leave early.
Siri is Apple's answer to Google Assistant for artificial intelligence. It's improving all the time with each new iOS release. That said, it's still limited to fairly simple tasks and doesn't offer the advanced smarts of Google Assistant (Google Assistant is also ​available for the iPhone). 
Winner: Android

So there you have it, all facts laid bare for you to be the judge of. 
Do well to leave a comment about your chosen Operating system, will it be the Android or the iPhone?
