The media is frequently debating the competition that Apple and Android seem to continuously be taking part in with one another. This adds to some hilarity over the issue of the iPhone 6 apparently bending out of shape which was seen through some angry customers in an article on the Daily Mail. I’m sure that could be done with any phone but for some odd reason, Apple gets judged tremendously.
Which leads to the question of why. Why are people still using iPhone’s if they complain so much about them? I for one don’t have any complaints about the way an iPhone works or the design of it and mine has not bent (knock on wood that it doesn’t.) Then again I wouldn’t go testing that theory out because bending a phone isn’t really what you’re meant to do with it.
I personally have used both. I used an Android while I was waiting to get an iPhone and it is not something that I would want to use again if I am completely honest. The quality of the camera’s aren’t that great and the device may actually have too many apps, to the point that I felt lost in the phone. Yes, there is the factor that users can be more “free” when using an Android, I frankly don’t mind not having any freedom when using an iPhone. I don’t fancy changing any codes or modifying anything, honestly, I don’t even have the brain capacity to try and attempt doing anything like that. Having no freedom isn’t such a bad thing when it comes to the use of mobile phones, well for me anyway and I know many other people that feel the same way.
However, if you’re really smart and changing codes or modifying the Android software/system is what you want to do, then you go right ahead and be my guest! In relation to my chosen media platform, Instagram, I have always found that the app is presented a lot better on an Apple iPhone than an Android and even though there isn’t much difference, I find it easier to use on an iPhone. The photo quality is a lot better which makes taking effective pictures much easier.
It all comes down to personal preference, your own opinions and what works for you. I think Apple has won this one.
Please leave comments of your own opinions, I’d love to hear!
