In the kingdom of smartphones, we got two types of operating users such as Android and IOS. When we think and compare the features and facilities between these two we are confused actually which one is better. Today we will discuss the “Ten important reasons an Android phone is better than an iPhone“.
Choices VS More Choices:
Once you pick an Android phone, you’ve got what feels like an endless number of phone options. Would you like a phone that normally does everything on the phones with extremely good pictures? Buy a phone with the camera as its main focus. Would you like to have a rough phone that could resist dropping many times? Do you want a phone with a screen of 4 K resolution instead of a screen of 720-1080p? Would you like a phone with a shape factor smaller or bigger? Android phones, and so much more, cover all this. That’s Android phones ‘ beauty— you can get the one that’s right for you.
Okay, it’s just an iPad with an iPhone. What you get is what it has in it. Yes, for a smaller or larger phone with slightly different hardware, you might get 2 or 3 options, but that’s it. On a model-based basis, the camera, computer, internal hardware, etc. will be the same.
My vital part is the customization of an Android phone. If you enjoy the ability to customize your phone, Android is the perfect way to go. Don’t like the standard Android keyboard? It’s quick! Simply download a third-party keyboard app to replace the stock app. Don’t you like the whole launcher running your phone? A new launcher can be downloaded. Do you want your phone to have the same layout as a Windows phone? You can also do that, yeah.
For all your images, widgets, predictive text on your messages, a fitness app, third-party keyboards, Swipe text, cloud storage, Android had all these features even before they were launched with new versions of iOS by Apple. Now it’s safe to say that Android and Apple are always behind the majority of the latest and greatest software features. Android is winning.
We think the hardware group really enhances the Android-Apple controversy. People can argue all day about what software (operating system) is better for this or that reason, but for a cheaper price you can’t argue about better and faster hardware.

The Samsung Galaxy S10+ has significantly better specs than the iPhone 11 Pro Max, as you can see from the specifications comparison. With specifications such as a higher density AMOLED beautiful screen, double the base storage (128 GB vs 64 GB), more RAM than the iPhone 11 Pro Max, higher battery capacity, weighing nearly 2 oz less and having both an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint sensor and facial recognition, the Galaxy S10+ should be the clear winner when it comes to hardware.
The Google Play Store:
The Play Store in Google is awesome. It’s well-designed, extremely user-friendly, and offers any kind of app you might think of. They’re using a stunning, rather simple UI. It’s easy to read, showing users what they want to see, and it’s attractive visually. I used the Google Play Store as well as the Apple App Store a bit. Both of them are very good app stores— better than the Amazon App Store, that’s for sure.
On the other hand, uploading your Android-based app to the Google Play Store is much simpler. You don’t have to go through half of the stuff you’ve got to do with Apple. This makes your life less stressful and that’s what I like. How many people do you actually know that the software they downloaded from the app store has malware directly on their phone? I meet no one. Furthermore, in this day and age, has common sense just gone out of the window? The Internet is not being filtered from malware, so are you going to a website screaming “THIS IS A VIRUS!”? No, this is only common sense.
Widgets & Multitasking:
This somewhat ties in with the section on customization, but Widgets has long been Android’s huge advantage over iOS. Android offers a wide range of widgets you can put on your home screens. These widgets could be anything from a custom clock, weather, alarms, direct phone calls, flashlight, emails, messages, etc. These can be arranged anywhere on your home screens and your home screens are exactly the way you want them to be.
Multitasking has been around for a while on Android, and it’s very easy to use. All you need to do is open the multitask window and you can drag two apps in the appropriate boxes at the same time (see picture above). For example, while accessing my file system at the same time, I’m watching a YouTube video. Maybe you want to watch a lecture video just below the video when taking notes? And, watch a video while your friends are writing? Go for that.
Most Android phones provide expandable memory. It means that you can open the back cover or a slot on your phone’s side and put it in a micro SD card that will then attach power to your phone. What’s Apple doing? Well, they’ve never provided the iPhone with expandable memory. Alternatively, they’d rather give them an unwarranted amount of money to upgrade the iPhone from base 64 GB capacity to one with an internal storage of 256 GB or 512 GB. You’re serious? With 32 GB of internal memory, I took my Galaxy S7 Edge and added another 64 GB micro SD card to it and voila! My phone has storage of 96 GB now, and how much did it cost me? The SD card is $19. Android is winning.
User Removable (Serviceable) Battery:
Not all of them, but some Android phones are going to have a removable battery that you can pick up and replace or operate to your taste. The battery will begin to lose its original power after you use a phone a while. It’s not a question of whether the battery life starts to get low; it’s a matter of how it operates for lithium-ion batteries. They go through enough cycles of charge and then can hold only a certain percentage of their original capacity.
So, say you’ve been on an iPhone for a long time and it doesn’t last long before a charge is required. Okay, too bad, you’re going to have to go to the Apple store or some shop that can serve it, or you’re just going to have to live with it. If you have a removable battery on your Android phone, you can just hop on to Amazon and purchase a generic battery for your phone type (usually around $20) and pop it in. Then the battery of your phone is fresh again!
Almost all Android phones use chargers with either micro USB or USB-C. What’s got Apple? Well, they decided to make the lightning cables of their own chargers. These are not only different and can only be used for Apple devices, but they tend to be of extremely low quality. Why would you ask Apple to do this? Because it makes more money for them Unless Apple decided to use USB-C chargers on all of its iPhones, they will lose money. This is because on Amazon you can buy USB-C chargers much cheaper than Apple’s website costs a lightning cable. Plus, you have to fork over even more of your hard-earned money to buy a new one when your Apple charger goes bad.

Apple 85W MagSafe 2 Power Adapter
These are the three main iPad, iPhone and Macbook Pros chargers rated by more than 2,000 people on an average of 1.5 out of 5 stars. I have never seen such low ratings of goods from a brand that is so focused on their quality. They charge $19 for the 1 m flash to USB, $29 for the 2 m flash to USB, and $79 for the MagSafe 2 charger. It’s a theft.
This is specifically targeted at the controversy on the Galaxy Note 3 vs. the iPhone 6 plus that took place a couple of years ago. Because there are so many Android phones out there, the reliability of all Android phones cannot be assessed. Some are made of materials that are durable, some are not. Samsung, however, had a lot of heat to make their phones (e.g. Galaxy S5) out of polycarbonate (tough plastic) instead of aluminum like the iPhone and some other phones. The Galaxy S6/S6 Edge and the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge are now made of rugged, glass-faced aluminum. Samsung and other firms have really stepped up when it comes to the materials from which they make their phones.
This section refers to other features that are supported by some Android phones that are not Up to the iPhone 7. They’re like the “cherry on top” of all the other listed apps. Certain Android phones, for example, have some or all of the following features:
- Resistant to water and dust-Update: iPhone XS is the first IP68 certified phone. Before Apple did, Samsung had an IP68 certified telephone.
- Wireless / fast charging-Update: The iPhone X can now be charged wirelessly-several years after Android.
- Reverse wireless charging
- 5 mm jack (yes, tons of people still use this, Apple)
- IR (infrared) blaster to control devices
- Haptic feedback-update: the iPhone 7 now has haptic feedback-2 years after Android had it.
- Ability to use your phone as a mass storage device to access all your files And more…
As I said above, not all of these things have Android device (some have just a few or none), but the Galaxy S8,S9 has all of the things mentioned (except the IR blaster). The iPhone 7 was the only iPhone when it was released to have any of those things mentioned. A few years back, the Galaxy S5 had all these things. (Included IR Blaster)
All in all, there are merits and demerits for both Android phones and iPhones. I could also write an article about some of the plus-points of an iPhone over an Android phone, but the advantages of Android outweigh the benefits I think you get with an iPhone. If you enjoy the benefits listed in this article including having plenty of phone options, flexibility, better hardware, and expandable memory to name just a few, go with an Android phone. Go with an iPhone if you prefer a simple, more user-friendly interface for someone who might not be as technical and would not like to have a lot of customization options. Only know you’re not having your buck’s biggest bang.
