Apple has recently seen its sales jump by 30% after selling an astounding 75 million iPhones. This has undermined Samsung’s global leadership in the smartphone market. Despite Apple’s increasing popularity, there are many reasons why Android phones are better than iPhones. Here are a few:
- When buying an iPhone, you have a fixed amount of storage space. Most Android devices though have a microSD slot so you can easily buy more storage space for a relatively low cost.
- If your battery doesn’t work, you can replace it with a new one. This is not the case with iPhones.
- Several Android phones (including HTC One, LG G3 and Galaxy S5) can be used as remote controls because they use infrared technology. iPhones do not feature this technology.
- When you connect your Android phone to a PC, you can easily access your archives, songs, photos, etc. This is not the case with all iPhones.
- If you are using an Android phone, you can listen to songs in any file format without a problem. Apple’s new iOS 8 requires that you use iTunes whenever you want to load your iPhone with songs, and iPhoto, whenever you want to transfer your images to your PC.
- You can use any micro-USB cable to charge your Android phone. However, if you want to charge your iPhone, you need to have an Apple cable.
- You can share your Android tablet with your friends as you can create more than one account so that the other user only has access to his data. iPads do not feature this function.
- While the iOS allows you to unlock your device using your fingerprint or a password, most Android devices give you more options to do so.
- Unlike iPhones, Android phones do not restrict you to have all your apps on the home screen.
- Android users can switch between multiple apps. LG phones, for example, allow you to move recently used apps in separate windows, change the size of the windows, etc. This is not possible on iPhones.
