#8 Downloading and Installing Apps


  • When you want to look for and install Android apps, you can do so directly from your browser and from Google Play. Since its allows you to download them directly to your phones from the website.
  • CAN´T do that with your iPhone, since you can´t download them from the web, you are ¨obligated¨ to use iTunes or the App Store, so you can there start to download them and install them.

  • NOT the iPhone, even with inferior specs, amazingly it is still VERY expensive.


#15 Various User Accounts

  • Even though this point isn´t directly for the iPhone, it does involve iOS, where ib this Android Vs. Apple, we have a clear winner. Android tablets have the advantage that the user can create multiple accounts so, the whole family can use one tablet. This way only the user can see their information and not someone else´s.
  • The iPad DOESN´T offer its users this option.
