android vs iosAndroid and iOS – The Pros and Cons Technology ion the Smartphone world is quite on a steady rise as innovators have upped their game to compete in this very active market. Operating system developers are on a roll in terms of designing operating systems for Smartphone. With all the innovation on show two operating systems seem to stand out and are competing neck to neck. They are Android and iOS. This is in recognition that other operating system developers like Symbian are slowly going down and WP7 still trying to create a market niche for them selves.

However, both these operating systems are different with each having unique and distinctive features that give each one an edge over the other. Here is a look at the pros and cons of both the Android and iOS operating system.

Android Pros: With its multi tasking ability, Android is miles ahead of its other Smartphone operating systems developing competitors. Its notification system is top of the range as it comprises of emails and updates from widgets and other social networking sites. Android’s applications and Apps are most popular. This clearly shows that Android is a successful Operating System. There is no other Operating System that ahs a social networking integration better than Android’s. Android’s popularity also rides on the fact that it gives the user all the freedom to choose hardware that suites them. Its market for Apps is also on the rise, even faster than Apple which is considered the giant in terms of Apps. Cons: In terms of optimization, Android definitely is not the best Operating System. This is quite evident in its poor battery performance. Its batteries keep growing larger with running time growing minimal. To make matters worse you need to use a Google account to use the phone. There are many versions of Android with only a few years in the market. This tends to be confusing to the user as he won’t be sure which version he is buying. Android’s desktop syncing does not exist with carrying skins that are not worth mentioning.

iOS Pros: With its media playing abilities, iOS is most definitely better than Android and infact almost unbeatable. In terms of Apps quality and quantity, Apple is still way ahead even though Android Apps are catching up very fast. iOS comes with the best UIs and updates of the same are very fast as compared to other platforms. There is also a good gap provided in terms of development hence versions are minimal meaning that buyers won’t be confused in terms of version to buy. iOS has desktop syncing incorporated unlike with Android. Cons: Android comes first in terms of the notification system. It is even safe to say that not one Operating System can compete with Android on this system. Making things even worse s the fact that Apple’s rejection of Apps without any valid reasons does not sink well with developers and may soon give the Android an edge in terms of Apps.

With these pros and cons it is clear that both the Android and iOS Operating Systems are revolutionary in their own ways. With competition intensifying between the two developers Smartphone users are going to be treated to the best Apps and features in the market.
