iOS vs. Android
Posted 04 August 2016 - 12:52 PM
Now, then. iOS is the best mobile operating system out there because of its accessibility. It's easy to pick up an iPhone and go. Also, because Apple controls both its hardware and software, iOS is specifically optimized to work flawlessly on iPhones, iPods, and iPads. The "one size fits all" ecosystem of Android is clunky and frustrating.
And when it comes to software updates, iOS updates release simultaneously on all supported devices, so you can have the latest software version as soon as it comes out. With Android, if you don't have a Nexus phone, you're SOL. Each hardware manufacturer has to tweak the OS to fit its specific device, and then they go and put their own skins on it, using up precious storage space and bogging the phone down. Case in point: Samsung. You just don't have that headache with iPhones.
And finally, iDevices have iTunes. And practically everyone has something on iTunes. Got an Android device? Too bad, no iTunes for you! That is, unless you want to go through the headache of .mp3 conversion.
So, yeah. iOS all the way for me. What about you?

I don't listen to music on my phone. That's what an iPod is for. But if I did it would be no problem as all of my music is in MP3 format; if I download something in another format i immediately (easily) convert it to MP3 so I have complete control over the file.

I literally wouldn't use an Apple product if it was given to me and I hope Steve Jobs is sucking Satan's bifurcated cock.

I have written before, I think, I had my same old Nokia phone for like 13 years but my company quit supporting it this spring. My adult kids have iPhones but I wasn't going to spend the money. I found a refurbished older model Samsung Galaxy online (for under 32.00) and I wasn't sure I would like Android but it turns out I love it! The camera is really nice; sound quality good, it let me put a Rush ring tone on it! As a first smart phone it's great and very sturdy as well. I just load music on from iTunes through the USB cord and there's no problem there, so I'm not sure what the Android fear is that people have. I don't run a lot of apps or play games though . . . .

I have never used a Mac computer and always have had PC's.

For phones, I find iOS to be far better than android for what I want. I can understand why people who want to customize their phones and who don't mind dealing with all the crap associated with that want to use it, but I like the ecosystem. I would try a switch from iPhone to something else if I were able to take all my games and apps with me, just to really test it out. But alas, I cannot, so I will not.
