iPhone vs. Android

iPhone vs. Android are often compared by students who are emotionally attached to one or the other.

iPhone’s have been around since 2007. Throughout the years, Apple has updated them tremendously for customers to like them even more. Apple has released a total of thirty-four iPhones over the years.

“Android, the operating system Google has made for mobile devices since 2008, is a largely open-source software. Androids have more than 24,000 different Android devices now. Android is based on Linux and thus is a fully open-source operating system. iOS, on the other hand, is developed in-house by Apple and only has parts of the code that are open-source. Users have barely any system permissions in iOS but in Android, users can customize their phones easily. Android software is available for many manufacturers such as Samsung, LG, etc.,” said¬† https://www.diffen.com/difference/Android_vs_iOS

“I like iPhones a lot more than Androids because they have better quality photos, videos, and just about everything you can see on the phone, but I also don’t like the new updates on the iPhone, and I feel like Androids have a lot more storage to hold the photos and videos,” said sophomore, Semiyah Royal. “Androids are also slow and ugly in my opinion.”

Other students prefer iPhones.

“I like iPhones because I think they’re better because you can Facetime on them, and you cannot on Androids. iPhone’s also unlock quicker with the new face ID technology that they have now where Androids cannot. I do not like Androids because of the cameras on the phones. I also think that iPhone storage is terrible because mine runs out so fast and Androids have a lot more storage than iPhones. The new updates on iPhone’s are pretty cool I think because they change mostly the appearance on the phone. If I had to recommend a phone to someone though, I would definitely recommend the Android because they are cheaper and have better storage,” said sophomore, Aja Adkins.

“I feel like more people like iPhone’s just because they are the most known phones right now,” said sophomore, Claire Crawford. “I personally prefer iPhones more, but I don’t see anything wrong with Androids.”
