Android Actually is Better than iPhone, See Why!

Android Actually is Better than iPhone, See Why!

Many people do not understand what Android is and why Android phones are usually better than the Apple iPhone.

Android is a general operating system that has been around for many years and you can find phone that are 5 years old running android. If you take a 5 year old Android phone and compare it to the iPhone 5, yes, the iPhone will be so much faster.

But let us compare Apples to Oranges (or shall we say, Apple & Androids).

If we take the latest Android phone like a Samsung Galaxy S4 and compare it to a iPhone 5 you will see that Android has already far surpassed Apple.

Here are the main differences between the two phones:

iPhone 5 Android Galaxy S4
Memory Card Slot None microSD, up to 64 GB
CPU Dual-core 1.2 GHz Quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A15
Dimensions 4.87 x 2.31 x 0.30 in 5.38 x 2.75 x 0.31 in
Internal Memory 1 GB RAM 2 GB RAM
Primary Camera 8 MP, 3264×2448 pixels 13 MP, 4128 x 3096 pixels
Screen Size 4.0 inches 5.0 inches
Second Camera 1.2 MP, 720p@30fps 2 MP,1080p@30fps
SIM Nano-SIM Micro-SIM
Weight 112 g (3.95 oz) 130 g (4.59 oz)

 

The Samsung Galaxy with Android has a faster CPU, more memory, a better camera on both sides of the phone, and even comes with the ability to add a mini sd card. So instead of paying an extra $100 for more storage space on your iPhone, Android users can just pay $15 for a 32GB mini SD card from Amazon.

Android Apps are plentiful nowadays and your are not tied into using Apple specific software. Many apps that cost money in the Apple App Store are free on Google Play. Like the very popular chatting app called Whatsapp, Apple users must pay $1 and Android users get it free.

So if you really want the latest and greatest smartphone you are better off going with an Android that came  out last week. If you want the latest and greatest Apple then just go buy the one that has been sitting in Apples warehouse for the past 6 months.

Please share this with all uneducated smartphone users out there! You will save yourself much worthless arguments about which phone is the best!
