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.

Review: iOS 9 And Its Latest Invention

Apple has always been the target of the market. It has become our priority to see off and on updates of iOS, iPhone, iPad and so on. When it comes to iOS 6, iOS 7,  iOS 8 and now iOS 9 is going to release soon.

Apple is now all set to give us iOS 9 with upgraded features. With more speed, Apple is launching its latest products like iPhones and iPads. This is unstoppable chain.

iOS 9
 
Apple has been celebrating its victory with per release. I am sure iOS 9 has more good stuff to offer.
Do notice some updates we are likely to have in iOS 9.
 
The features may vary from my updates but you never know I am very close to my guesses.

1. User Accounts

The idea of having user account will solve the purpose of having privacy for your images, IDs and some official details you want to hide. If this feature will be there in iOS 9 then really it will be winner. What if you can log into iOS with user name or account. What if there will be privacy for the bookmarks, apps and media content. There should be such account, which can prohibit anybody from seeing your personal images and your social sites.

2. Video Messages with Face Time

This feature is made for managing the issues like if you want be connected with your closed one when you are apart  then video messages will help you immensely to stay connected.

3. Group FaceTime Calls

The pre loaded Face Time calls are in great use when you have number of people more than two for the conversation. It promotes group conversation whether it is professional or personal.

4. Pre-loaded apps can be deleted

It is somehow not required to have those apps which is unnecessary for you. You cannot like every apps you have sometimes you need keep your phone less loaded with apps for the fast browsing. When you will have privilege to delete those apps then this ability will be appreciable and can be expected from iOS 9.

5. Home screen

Tech is at its best. This is certainly great if there would be the privilege of Home screen widgets. Life seems to be easier if you have weather widget for enjoying the background of the Home screen.

6. Local Siri

When you have net connection then Siri can work perfectly. Sending voice command back to HQ through back-end servers of Apple. If your mobile network is not working even you can send message then this is something everybody need.

7. iMessage with more upgradation

This really irritates when you are unable to send message via text if the signal is not supporting. In that condition, you need to go through long process of taping and selecting Send as text.
iOS 9 Apple

Apple developer is giving us more what we human deserve. Tech is moving faster more rapidly. I am waiting for ios 9 beta release.

Apple iPhone 5s : Features And Specification



For those who are waiting  for Apple iPhone, here are the details about new iPhone 5s. With iPhone 5s, getting into your phone is faster, easier and even a little futuristic. 

Apple Introducing Touch ID — a new fingerprint identity sensor in iPhone5s








Put your finger on the Home button, and just like that your iPhone unlocks. It’s a convenient and highly secure way to access your phone. Your fingerprint can also approve purchases from iTunes Store and the App Store, so you don’t have to enter your password. And Touch ID is capable of 360-degree readability. Which means no matter what its orientation — portrait, landscape or anything in between — your iPhone reads your fingerprint and knows who you are. And because Touch ID lets you enroll multiple fingerprints, it knows the people you trust too.



Apple iPhone 5s introduces A7 Chip- First 64-bit smart phone in the world


The new A7 chip gives you CPU and graphics performance up to 2x faster than the A6 chip. Even more impressive, A7 makes iPhone 5s the first 64-bit smartphone in the world — that’s desktop-class architecture in a super-slim phone. And because iOS 7 was built specifically for 64 bit, it’s uniquely designed to take advantage of the A7 chip.
