Since the first release of the iphone it has become a benchmark of all smart phones. Android phone was still brewing that time and it was not that big compared to this day. Nobody knows that Android will become a primary competitor of Iphone. Android exploded since the release of 2.1. The mobile phone market has been divided to two instead of one. The lime light was then shared by Iphone and Android Phone.
When Iphone was first released it was big! Everyone wants an iphone, the flicking and sliding of the UI was very smooth and slim. It was flawless. But the first iphone was still lacking that time, like unable to forward and edit messages was a problem. Now the iphone 4 has a reception issue too. Despite these issues the Iphone is still the best phone according to its supporters. And then there was the Android phone, a highly customizable phone made by Google. Android is free since it is based on Linux operating system. Android users like the freedom to customize the looks and ui by using Android Themes; this is not available to Iphone users.
So what’s the best phone for you? Iphone or Android? For me I don’t want to label myself of any brand, I am neither an Apple fan boy nor Android boy. I like them both. I use both iphone and android and both of them has upside and downside. I like the iphone because of the UI smoothness, no lags, fling on the iphone is a joy. The downside is the iTunes, I like copy and paste that simple. Loading your multimedia files should not be dependent to the iTunes. If you insert you iphone to another PC or Mac it will erase all your media files. It feels like I don’t own my phone because I cannot control it. Plus it is not customizable; there are no themes to apply so you will be using the same look over and over again.
The Android on the other hand does not require any application to copy multimedia files. There is a SD card slot which you can expand so you can add extra space. If it’s a war against operating systems I will choose the Android over Ios, no doubt about that. It is highly customizable; I can change my android themes to anything I like from android tablet themes to iphone style theme. The only thing I don’t like about an Android phone is it lags. Even if you are using dual core phones there are times that it lags. Not all the time though but still it is annoying.
