It’s been years and the iPhone vs Android debate seems like an unending feat of argument,  this is as a fact is due to the constant, regular updates and upgrades given to these two  platforms. The latest being Android Lollipop 5.1 and iOS 8.3 respectively. So, anyone making an argument as per these

two platforms must considerably be in vogue too.
    Here, we are going to take a quick look at the features that makes each of the platforms better, in an unbiased format. So I’ll be giving you  reasons why Android beat iPhone and Vise Versa.
MICRO SD SUPPORT

When you buy an iPhone, you’re stuck with as much storage as you decided to buy at the get-go. The 16GB  iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus options don’t offer enough room for most users, and that is the amount of storage you are stuck with until you buy a new iPhone in maybe two years. Whereas, most Android phones support a Micro SD card that can store photos, videos and some apps so that you can easily add more storage  with a small memory card. Even some Android  phones support up to a 128GB Micro SD card and almost all current Android phones with a Micro SD card slot can handle a 64GB Micro SD Card.

USER FRIENDLINESS

Quite a lot can be said on this note as iPhones has failed to improve on this part.
    Android doesn’t care where your music comes from. Apple however, require iTunes if you want to load your iPhone up with songs, and you need iPhoto if you ever want to get your photos onto your computer.
    You can use any micro-USB cable to charge your Android phone. If you want to charge your iPhone, you need to have Apple’s proprietary “Lightning” cable.
    You can customize an Android phone much more than an iPhone, like by adding widgets on your home screen. Whereas, you can’t do that on an iPhone
     Android phones don’t force you to keep all of your apps on one of your home screens, as iPhones do.
    Google’s app store lets you download apps to your phone directly from its website. If you search for an iPhone app in a browser, on the other hand, you have to launch iTunes or the App Store to download and install it.

MULTITASKING

The multitasking implementation on Android allows any program to run in the background, for as long as it wants.
iOS does not allow true multitasking for third party apps.  iOS only allows certain APIs to run in the background, such as audio streaming and push notifications.  An app stops running the instant the user switches to another app.  Apple gives their own apps multitasking abilities that other apps are not allowed to use, which can cause confusion.

iOS’ strict control of multitasking this has a couple of benefits. First, battery life is greatly improved, because apps aren’t running in the background, and because app creators often have to run functionality in a server and utilize push notifications from that server for functionality that might have been easier to implement in the mobile app.  Secondly, interactive user interfaces are never impacted by apps running in the background, leading to the superior smoothness of iOS.

BETTER INTERCONNECTIVITY BETWEEN APPS AND AND ACCESS TO DATA

Apps on iOS appears to be independent of each other and problem comes when you want to share data from one app with another. While things have  gotten better with iCloud Drive and iOS 8, Android still leads the way in being able to easily access your data. You can even browse all your data using a file manager app if you so wish. This allows you to work with, back up and move about your data the way you want to.
