Apple or android? A question that has created many disputes between people who would rather save money and opt for a good phone and people who are willing to spend a little extra on a great phone. So, what is the difference, really?
Regular iPhone Operating System (IOS) updates are one of the best things Apple has produced. Without fail, they consistently deliver IOS updates with new features and security enhancements to keep your iPhone up to date, while Androids, are a bit slow in bringing in updates that make your smartphone more secure.
Android is what most people opt for, due to its affordable prices and high variety of phones to choose from. The fact that most smartphones run on android and also because many companies build android handsets, are also a plus. This cannot be said for the iPhone, which has a track record of being extremely exclusive and expensive at launch, and only decreasing in price after the introduction of other generations. Outside of the cameras, iPhones are famous for their privacy and security systems. They offer security features like facial recognition and fingerprint authentication to protect your personal information. One might argue Android has them as well, but the efficiency is not guaranteed. The iPhone even stops apps from tracking your activity online because of its limiting and efficient operating system.
So, which one is better? Would you rather buy a perfect phone with state-of-the art features, or a reliable phone that is much more affordable? Are you willing to spend a small fortune on a phone that will protect you and your information, take photos that make you seem like a professional photographer and give you all the latest tech features, or would you rather save money where you can and buy an Android?
