You’ve always wanted to get your hands on an iPhone because your friends afforded to buy one of the models and now they make feel like a loser. Don’t worry, you haven’t missed much, as in the past weeks, Android OS proved to be worth of appreciation, being more stable than iOS 8, which is sill struggling to fix its bugs.
First of all, many iOS users are envious of the Android users because they have more cool features they can use on their Samsung, HTC or LG devices, and considering that in 2015, they’ll deliver new flagships, many Android fans will surely want to buy a powerful phone with a 64bit processor and which takes photos with a 20MP camera.
Apple is limited to its line of iPhones, and the old models can’t be upgraded to the latest iOS 8.1.3 version, which means they run much slower, but the latest iPhone 6 and 6 Plus don’t offer the best experience because of the bugs Apple can’t fix. But we’re expecting more stable versions once 8.2 or 8.3 will be released later this year.
Anyway, another advantage of the Android phones is the water and dust resistance, and we’ll give a few examples: Sony Xperia Z3v or Galaxy S5, while the HTC One M8 is a beautiful smartphone with a metallic design. If you’re looking for a phablet accompanied by a built-in stylus, then the Note 4 is perfect for you.
Another advantage is the wireless charging, which lacks from the iPhones. Also, they don’t have a removable battery or expandable storage, meaning that if you get the latest iPhone 6/6 Plus, you’ll have three variants of fixed storage – 16, 64 and 128GB.
Also, the iPhone 6 is extremely expensive, as the 16GB variant costs 649 dollars, while other Android devices with high end specs can cost 300-400 dollars (OnePlus One). The 128GB variant of the iPhone 6 costs 849 dollars, while other Android phones allow you to extend their memory up to 128GB and you’ll pay less money on the device + the memory card.
Apple might lure its users with the iCloud, Maps, iCloud Drive services, but Google has better web-based software and services.
