4 Main Reasons Why Android Phone is Better Than iPhone

The controversy surrounding the topic of "which is best between Android phone and iPhone" can not be overemphasized. I could remember years back, the rival was between Android and Blackberry but now that BB is completely defeated and fazed out of the competition, focuses now turn to Android and PC. While some people claim that iPhone is the best because of its security and classy appearance, many others believes that Android is far more better. So here I explained 4 main reasons why most smartphone users prefer Android devices.

Although Android phones seems to be more popular in Africa, Asia and some countries in the Middle East, but in developed countries like the United States and Britain, iPhone rules. But in Nigeria, the truth is most people that uses iPhone do so in order to be seen as happening guys or babes as they don't even know what to do with it. Some iPhone fanboys buys it to feel among. Imagine! Anyway let's look at why Android is still better than iPhone.


1. Easy File Sharing With Other Devices: Trust me, iPhone is a stingy device. In a normal situation, you can not share files from an iPhone to another device which isn't iOS powered. Though Apple intentionally did this for security reasons to limit the exposure to malware and viruses, I think the bad effect is becoming more uncomfortable for some people hence they prefer Android phones where you can freely share files and even connect to PC without easily.
With an Android phone, I can easily receive files from other device using Bluetooth or Xender app. Like Aderola15 can easily share "The Wedding Party Movie" from her chinko phone to my Android phone through bluetooth whereby reverse is the case on an iPhone.

Even To connect to a computer requires the itunes Software where all an Android phone needed is a USB Cord. It's honestly one of the turn offs for iOS devices for the average user.

2. Tweaking: Another reason why Android phone is better than iPhone is the ability to tweak, the flexibility in customization even without rooting the device. In fact, new Android OS like the Marshmallow and Nougat allows users to tweak and get most of those features you normally get on rooted devices. Okay, take for instance, how many free browsing cheats have you been able to use on an iPhone. I can comfortably count how many free browsing tweaks I have posted on this blog for iPhone users but that of Android is uncountable. Also, manipulating and customizing Android is more easier than on iOS powered device where you must jailbreak the device in order to customize even a simple theme.

3. Faster OS and System Updates: Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. It is an open source OS that gives other manufacturers the ability to make devices with the OS unlike iPhone which are only made by Apple! Different brands now produce phones with customized features embedded in the Android OS and as such release updates on frequent basis. For instance, some Samsung phones receives system update and OS update on frequent basis to fix some bugs and also bring along new features.
Don't get it twisted, Apple also releases iOS updates but Android is faster from Android 4 known as kitkat, Android 5 (Lollilop), Android 6 (Marshmarllow), Android 7 (Nougat) and now Android 8 is almost around all these happening within a short space of time.

2. Affordability: You will agree with me that iOS devices are far more expensive than their Android counterparts. If you're thinking of getting an iPhone, you'll need to prepare an amount of 100k to 200k and above whereby you can get an Android phone with just #20,000! Yet, that doesn't mean you're limited to enjoyment ooh.
Meanwhile With your Android phone, you can Whatsapp, browse, Video chat, facebook messenger, use top web browsers like Chrome/Firefox, and LOTS MORE!
Indeed, Android had made things lots more easier!

In summary, iPhones are great smartphones with amazing security and beautiful design but the truth must be told, Android is still better and more preferable to the average phone user. Unless you are more concerned about malware attack and security lapses, then you should consider iPhone but don't forget that some Android phone makers like Gionee have started making phones with encrypted files making it difficult to get attacked by malware and limit other security lapses. In fact Gionee M6 is tagged one of the most secured smartphones in the world today.
