Ever since smartphones were first introduced, the debate of which operating system to choose has raged, sparking online arguments, each side diligently defending their OS of choice until the very end.  Once blackberry died it has forever been Android vs iOS.

In this post, let’s go over the key benefits of each system to help you make the decision of which suits your needs.


Android offers the most customizable options compared to iOS. You can add widgets to the home screen, install a skin that completely changes the appearance, and much more. With iOS, you’re stuck with what Apple gives you, aside from changing the wallpaper.

App Selection

The Apple App Store offers millions of apps, each carefully picked and selected by Apple. This ensures there are fewer junk apps on the store or any apps that could cause damage to the device.

The Google Play Store is more lenient when it comes to which apps are accepted, meaning that you can download a wider variety of apps including gaming emulators and alternative music services. There have been some security risks in the past from apps on the Play Store, so if you are looking for the best apps on the market, iOS may be the best choice.


If you want to use iOS, you have to have an iPhone. What makes iOS so seamless and smooth is the control Apple has over the devices that can run it. All of the processors are compatible, the internal sensors work well, and the screens fit the visuals perfectly.

On the other hand, Android runs on thousands of different phones, and some phones run Android better than others. Also, many phones will run a custom version of Android that looks different and is better suited for the particular device.

If you want choice when it comes to your hardware, Android is maybe the way to go.

The Final Verdict

It all comes down to personal preference and what you are looking for in a mobile experience. If you want to customize the look and feel of your system, go with Android. If you want a pure, and optimally stable system go with iOS. Try both out for yourself and see which one appeals to you!
