People have always doubt about which is better: the iPhone or the Android smartphone? Most people choose to be fans of iOS than Android. People have faith that iPhones were technically superior, and the only reason someone would choose Android was that they couldn’t afford one of Apple’s devices, but now the gap between Android and iPhone has narrowed dramatically in recent years. This article will completely change your mindset about Android phones, here you will know the things which android can do but iPhone can’t:
- More choices in Android hardware:
Apple smartphones offer only three hardware choices, but Android offers you wide range of options covering a wide range of sizes, shapes, feature sets, and price. Android devices offer you low-end equipment, mid-range appliances and high price devices (Samsung) that are comparable to those of a new iPhone. But the interesting point of Android devices is their midrange devices that compete for head to head with flagship phones costing up to twice as much.
- Media files can’t be transferred to a Windows PC easily using an iPhone:
Transferring your data from ios to other device is not always a big issue. But with an Android device, by using a USB port on your Windows computer, you can quickly transfer the media files. In iPhone, if you want to transfer music or video files, you must have iTunes and use this app instead of File Explorer, which is very difficult.
- There is no Back button on the iPhone
All Android devices have back buttons, but iPhones do not have it. iPhone device has buttons inside apps that are used to go back, but the Back buttons in Android devices are more comfortable. You could tap it repeatedly to get out of any app, and it was always there, in the same place, no matter what.
- Android devices have a headphone jack
There are many Android devices which offer you 3.5mm jacks, but in iPhone, you have to prepare to plug a set of headphones, and then if you recognise that you left your headphone dongle back on your desk, it will be very stressful and annoying, but luckily android gives you 3.5 mm (most android devices) jacks so that you will easily connect to your headphones.
- You can replace the launcher
The most frustrating aspect of using an iPhone is its inflexible home screen. You get one icon per app, which you can, in turn, arrange into folders on multiple screens. But you can’t arrange those icons as you like them; you can only rearrange their order, which makes the whole process of organising the home screen. On an Android device, the default Android launcher is easy to replace. The real benefit is that you can return the default launcher with one that you prefer. I like the POCO Launcher, so I had just installed the app and set it as my default launcher. It becomes easy doing work according to my choices.
- Android has widgets:
Both Android and iOS offer a unique home page, where you can add widgets for quick access to calendar items, a news feed, weather forecasts, and so on. But thankfully on your Android device, you can add widgets directly to the home screen. For example, there is a widget which shows the current date and time in a large, easy-to-read format, with a four-day weather forecast beneath it.
- Pinned icons are useful on an iPhone
Icons on the Android device home screen represents individual items. Android device main home screen has shortcuts to pages from OneNote notebooks, Excel workbooks and even PDF files of boarding passes and other electronic tickets. But in iPhone on the home screen are shortcuts for individual apps. If you want quick access to a particular website, or photo, or document then, unfortunately, you have to open its app first and then look for it.
