Let’s “examine why the iPhone is better than Android handsets,” Zach Epstein writes for BGR. “To start things off, many talented developers still launch new apps for iOS first and then release Android versions somewhere down the road. This is a big advantage for iPhone users who like to be ahead of the curve.”
“The design of Apple’s iPhone lineup is far better than most Android phones,” Epstein writes. “Other checks in the iPhone column include Touch ID, Apple Pay, better parental controls and Apple’s superior customer service, which is undeniably better than anything offered by any Android phone vendor.”
“Apple’s overall app ecosystem and the quality of third-party iOS apps compared to Android apps… has been Apple’s biggest advantage for years,” Epstein writes. “The simple fact of the matter is that while Android developers have far more freedom with their apps, the app experience on iOS devices is almost universally smoother and more user-friendly than it is on Android phones.”
“Even in instances where the same exact app is available on the iPhone and on Android, the iPhone experience is almost always vastly superior,” Epstein writes. “iPhone apps look better, they’re more fluid and the user experience is better by a good margin.”
