The Android juggernaut is rolling at a steady pace and already it has got the lion’s share of the smartphone market. The Android operated smartphone account for 74.4 % of the smartphone market while the iOS operated smartphones occupy 18.2% market. With the launch of the iOS 7 operated iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, it is expected that the iOS will increase its share in the market. However which one of the two is better? It will be logical to compare the two OS in a step by step manner.
The iOS 7 has been recently released by Apple and experts say that the adoption rate of the new OS is around 26% in the existing iOS operated devices. It must be remembered that wireless carrier may choose to stick to the older version of the OS. The iOS 7 adoption rate is much higher than the Android updates. One of the highlights of the iOS is that the updates are quick and prompt as compared to the Android OS updates which are often lengthy and pretty delayed. The iOS scores creditably over the Android OS in the head of updates.
One fact which often earned the ire of its fans is that iOS is very slow in change. However the iOS 7 has brought in sweeping changes in the interface as compared to the iOS 6. The iOS 6 interface was far behind times and featured designs approved by the thence Steve Jobs. The latest iOS 7 interface is much simpler and helps the user to keep track on multiple fronts simultaneously. The Control Center is a new concept in the iOS 7 and gives quick access to features like the Bluetooth, Wi-Fi toggles, brightness, flashlight and commonly used commands.
The Android Jelly Bean 4.3 is a little more than an incremental upgrade from its predecessor. It brings a load of new features which highlights the importance Google attaches to its Android OS in comparison to iOS 7. One unique feature is Beam, which is akin to the Apple Airdrop. This feature enables files to be sent from one device to another via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection. This negates the need of locating a cloud service to host the files, or send them through emails.
Another important addition is the Android Now which is a marked improvement over the Android notification system. Gone are the multiple notification spread across the applications and instead we have a consolidated information of all the updates at one location.
