Here, to help you choose your next Smartphone, we are listing some of the essential features of both OS to make comparison easier.

Comparison: iOS or Android

The best way to compare iOS and Android is to take a look at the features.

  • Interface
    While talking about the interface, one highly noticeable interface feature of iOS is that it has much brighter colors than Android as iOS uses flat design and Android uses material design. Another highly noticed difference is that Android has three navigation buttons, i.e., back, home, and recent bars. On the other hand iOS uses swipe from left to right for easy navigation. Another interface difference between both the OS is that android uses hamburger menu whereas iOS uses the Bottom Tab Approach.

  • Speed

  • Security
    For security, we can undoubtedly say that iOS has better security than Android. The reason behind this is that iOS doesn’t allow malicious software to attack the phone.
