Many of us have been bombarded with the question of buying an iPhone or not. Whether an android is better and should someone consider investing money in it?
What is an iPhone?
It is a smartphone made by the company Apple that combines a computer, iPod, digital camera and a cellular phone into one device with a touchscreen interface. iPhone runs the iOS operating system (OS).
Some differences between an iPhone and an Android:
- There are a lot of differences between an Android and an iPhone one main is that with an iPhone, it is just one uniform platform and an Android get a lot of choices.
- There are thousands of Android devices in the world. Companies like Samsung, LG, HTC and even Amazon make phones and tablets. There is n number of phones available to buy and this means Android is really fragmented. An Android usually takes longer for updates, especially ones with critical security fixes. All Android devices work differently and have software that differs from one phone to the next.
- If we talk about hardware property of an iPhone, then only Apple makes it so only Apple has a strong control over how the software and hardware work together. On the other hand, Google offers the Android software to many phone makers, including Samsung. Because of that, an Android phone varies in feature and quality.
- The premium-priced Android phone is as good as the iPhone in terms of hardware quality but not the cheaper ones. If you want to buy an iPhone, just pick a model but an Android purchasing can confuse you a lot.
- If operating system worries you, get an iPhone for the latest version because Android makers are slow at updating their phones. Older phones are generally considered or expected to support the latest version of OS, older Apple is a better supporter of the new OS
- Apple store has nearly fewer apps compared to the Android. Around 2.1 million compared to the Android 3.5 million as of April 2018.
- Apple is too strict about what app it allows on its app store. Google is a bit relaxed
Do you really need an iPhone? Consider this:
- No, because the hardware hasn’t changed enough to warrant the price.
- No, because even for the best iPhone that everyone considers, the value isn’t there. The latest iPhone X has failed to deliver value commensurate with its price.
- No, keep your iPhone 6S. A new iPhone every year won’t make a large difference as a new one doesn’t possess a different version.
- No, because it seems like it sometimes not worth buying an iPhone and with some case issues, new iPhone X users say it is a step backward.
- Yes because it is a step forward for biometrics and device security.
- Yes because the face ID, TrueDepth camera, and overall design make it absolutely worth it.
- Yes because it lived up to its hype in terms of functionality.
It can’t be said which is the best iPhone, but giving the reasons if you look up, you can consider them and decide that whether you really want to buy an iPhone or not.
