Apple vs. Android, Which Side Are You On?

Apple vs Android. A debate that has been around for the better part of the decade. A debate that eclipses all others including Cox Internet Plans vs Comcast Internet Plans, mayo vs peanut butter and Coke vs Pepsi. Its often very hard to answer any of those questions. People choose on over the other based on their personal preferences. As iOS users and they are loyal to Apple. Ask Android users and they maintain it’s the best user experience. In this blog, we won’t be promoting one over the other. Instead we will be looking at certain key areas and how both Apple and Android perform in those areas.


Security

Security is an area in which Apple has the clear advantage. Its not completely impregnable but last year only 0.7% of global malware threats were aimed at iOS. This is partly due to the fact Android has more users but also due to the fact that Android is an easier target. Android users also tend to not be regular about updating their device, leaving it vulnerable to hackers. 

Customizability 

This one is a win for Android. Androids offer customizability in everything from lock screens to fonts. You can add or remove widgets as you please, changing the interface according to your preference. Each Android manufacturer has its own specific ‘flavor’ of the operating system, but all are fully customizable. Android allows you to tailor the user experience to your taste. On the other hand, its much harder to customize your experience on iOS since Apple holds its control measures very close. 

App Quality

Apple wins overall in the quality of apps you can download. Many apps are not available on Google Play due to concerns over piracy. Apple also has a stringent guidelines developers have to follow before getting their app approved. This ensures a measure of quality control across all the apps available on the Appstore. Apps on iOS tend to run smoothly, with fewer bugs and crashes than Android apps which don’t have the same quality. Android apps tend to have less effort involved in them because Android users tend to prefer free apps. 

Privacy

Privacy is a key area in which Apple is the clear winner. Apple has always been providing end-to-end encryption for iMessage, passcodes and fingerprints that are hard to break. Additionally with Touch ID, Apple became the first smartphone manufacturer to use Secure Enclave in its processors. Essentially, Secure enclave is a subsection of the processor which stores fingerprints and other security data. What this means is that if you own an iPhone 5s or above, Apple itself cannot break into your phone. 

Usability

This one is sort of a tie between the two. For someone who’s going through their first smartphone experience, Apple would probably seem to be the most user friendly. An average person accumulates around 20 plus apps and games on their phone which can affect user experience in Android phones. Too many apps can cause Android phones to become laggy and crash-prone. Apple keeps your phone running the same way it did on the first day even if you have 100 apps. Then again, Android offers the better user experience with its flexible interface controls. No clear winner here, its all dependent on what fits best with you.

Pricing

Android wins it when it comes to pricing. Android phones are much cheaper than Apple by far. Apple only has a small number of good phones and they are available at higher prices. Conversely, Android manufacturers tend to come out with smartphones of varying price ranges. When buying an Android phone, you can choose one according to the budget you have.

Innovative Hardware

Android is again the winner is in this category. Since there is fierce competition amongst Android manufacturers, they tend to go the extra mile to differentiate their brand. This has resulted in a range of innovative hardware features that you cant find in iPhones. Some examples are VR sets, IR blasters and dual SIM capabilities.

Specs

This is again an area in which Android is the clear winner. Android takes the lead in specifications like display resolution and touch screens like the AMOLED display. This makes for much clearer and sharper displays. Android phones also have better camera quality, storage capability and battery life than iPhones. With the advent of NFC, Android have stepped up their compatibility game when it comes to interacting with devices nearby.

There are tons of other areas in which the two popular operating systems compete. Both have specific strengths and weaknesses. While this blog can’t conclusively settle this debate, it hopefully gave you useful information to make your own decision. That means we can now shift our focus to other debates, such as the Frontier vs Comcast one.

Use Virtual Office Software for a Greener Planet


Nowadays, it’s cool to be concerned about sustainable environment. But more importantly, it is inevitable to be concerned about sustainable environment as it is the only way we can ensure a safe environment for our generations to come. While there are many obvious ways that are advocated for reducing the CO2 emission, there are some subtle lifestyle changes that can also make a drastic difference if made on a large scale. One of them is using a Virtual Office Software and reaping its many benefits that actually reduce the CO2 emission and help us save our planet.


Virtual Office Software and lifestyle change

Today, there are many Time Tracking Software that are changing the way we work. The knowledge worker of today prefers to work from his home by relying on unfaltering connectivity and collaboration tools. If the trend becomes permanent, more and more people would want to work from home and in turn reduce CO2 emission in the following ways:

1. Working from home means no need to drive to the workplace. It means that not only time but also fuel is saved when you work from home. Hence, you save your share of fossil fuel burning.
2. When remote workers are hired, the employers do not need to maintain a workplace. This means that extra electricity is not consumed. This cuts down the cost of electric bill. This also cuts down out usage and hence dependence on production of power through during of fossil fuels. Hence, less CO2 is emitted.
3. When remote workers stay at home, they collaborate and communicate through email and other digital form of communication. No paper based formal memoranda are sent out regularly. Since, Project Management Software take place of physical Project Management, less paper is used, less paper is wasted and less paper is recycled. This is good news for trees and certainly for us humans as well.
4. Remote workers spend way less in maintaining an up-to-date wardrobe. They don't mind working in their PJs as well. This laid back lifestyle choice means that there is less dependence on industries like fashion and makeup. A person opting for such a lifestyle will be doing his part of cutting down CO2 emission.

Conclusion

Time Tracking Software and Employee Monitoring Software are often endorsed to help businesses, boost productivity and increase profits. But a much nobler cause is often overlooked, that these software help in taking a step towards a Greener Planet.
