Android or iOS - what to choose?

Post by satsedhu » 05 Sep 2013, 9:26 pm

Autumn is a hot time for lovers of smartphones. At the beginning of September to appear interesting new Android handsets , and according to unofficial data, the September 10 Apple presents the new iPhone in the fresh iOS 7 . For those who are soon going to buy a new smartphone, here are the seven arguments for each operating system . Android or iOS - what to choose?


Android and iOS are the two leading operating systems for smartphones. Equipment under their control mastered in Poland 31% of the market in the second quarter of 2013. Although Apple is still suing the producers because it copies its technology, design and functionality, the above-mentioned systems are different from each other. Gathered for you seven reasons to choose a smartphone with this or any other operating system.
Android
1 Control your smartphone

Unlike iOS and operating system Android is more open to users . The consumer receives a tool through which you can gain access to the internal memory and the memory card of your smartphone. Files can delete, copy, rename, and on an ordinary PC. Some programs even allow the user to system files. It is true that we can not change them, because this part is protected against the actions of the client.


Interesting programs for controlling Android jobs are managers that do not exist in iOS-ie. They allow you to keep track of all applications running on the system and processes. As a result, it is possible to obtain information, stop or disable the program. These tools are designed for more advanced users who like to have maximum control over your smartphone. 2 Skins Another advantage of Android is the ability to change the visual appearance of the operating system. The smartphone can look as if acting under Windows or Mac OS. You can select which interface is not at all similar to any known operating systems. For users there are dozens of applications that are responsible for changing the interface and hundreds of so-called skins.


3 Log in to Google

when you first turn on your Android phone, smartphone certainly suggest you register an account in the mail Gmail . Not worth the sacrifice, because the account is necessary to connect to an online store Google Play, which later are downloaded, installed and updated software. Authorization lets you run Gmail and other popular Google services: Youtube, Google Talk, Google Plus, Picasa, without entering a password every time. 4 Widgets Android allows you to put your desktop icons not only normal but also small applications - widgets . It's beautiful, themed apps that show images of data on weather, traffic, news, etc. Their content is constantly updated, and often the data is illustrated graphically. For example, HTC smartphones, a widget that shows weather extends over the entire screen, pouring the rain or hiding behind the clouds.

5 Informative status bar

Speaking of Android, it is impossible not to mention the multi in the status bar . On it displays current information about the system, running applications and services. With a flick of a finger take off the belt down, stretching it to fill the screen, giving you access to system settings, loaded applications, the list of received messages, etc. In recent versions of iOS and appeared similar instrument, but it is not as functional as Android . 6 A wide range of programs iOS If you install an alternate program, the system will still try to open the content in the optional program. The Android same user has the option to choose which of the available applications to choose at the moment and whether to use it in the future as the default. should also mention the presence on Android a large amount of e-book readers . Just like the iOS is the program to read, but lacks settings and support various formats of books. Tools for Android let you configure everything - from the margins and font size, background color of the logic operation of footnotes. In addition, most of these programs work with virtually all popular formats of books.

7 Alternative app stores

users who do not like the built-in app store Google Play can try these alternatives. In contrast to the strongly tied to a single source of software installation on iOS, Android platform allows you to select a foreign shop, or simply upload-installing via USB cable. Other stores can satisfy the user's attractive pricing, carefully selected or custom functionalities programs, and even alternative means of payment. For example, instead of a credit card, some stores allow you to pay a payment terminal or directly from the mobile phone account. Applications have their own stores, for example, such a great company like HTC and Samsung.


iOS
1 ICloud omnipresent

universal media player Apple's iTunes seems illogical, but it is a consequence of the large number of functions. The application really allows maximum management of your phone and download to the variety of information. In addition, each time you connect to your computer iTunes makes a backup of your phone data on PC and can, if necessary, to restore the lost data. It is surprising that the function of storing data on your computer is not on Android smartphones

IPhone users have access and can store data in a so-called. cloud, or in the service iCloud . A similar feature has been implemented on the Android platform, but the backup is less available data types and the process of playing the device is not as convenient as in Apple'u. ICloud data are available on any device with the latest version of iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod), as well as all the new iMacs. 2 Joining the Club Chosen Apple iPhone owners may feel as members of the prestigious club. Get creative, innovative technologies, latest games and programs, so that the iPhone has become a benchmark. However, representatives of other platforms if it fails to lay a single community, which could challenge the supremacy of Apple's Chosen Club .


Free SMS

One of the interesting features of iOS is the availability of protocol messages iMessage . For user messages look like regular text messages, but instead of the network operator, travel around the web feed. Programs to send messages via the Internet are many, but the iMessage service is configured more flexibly than in all of them. When a user sends a simple text message to a recipient who also has the iPhone, the phone automatically tries to send it over the Internet. In case of failure - will send the message again, but this time in a normal text format. Altogether mail messages on a tape in different colors: the usual SMS - on green background, iMessage - a blue . It is said that iMessage works on all Apple devices - smartphones, tablets, laptops, and even iPods Touch. To register online, please enter your e-mail address or phone number. the Apple devices are also proprietary video calling - FaceTime . Everything works more or less the same as in the case of iMessage. Those who have iPhone, iPad, Mac or iPod Touch can connect without having to connect to Wi-Fi. This feature is available as a normal voice call or a video call. The protocol is fully integrated into the system. No additional software is required.

4 Security

Sales of computers in the world more and more reduced, and sales of smartphones and tablets - is growing. In the wake of this change, customers often transfer their data to mobile devices and make them a key to your data on websites. This key can give access to personal information about the customer, his business, and even directly to bank accounts, and therefore a growing need for security in smartphones. messages about the dangers of data iPhone owners happen quite rarely, since Apple does not allow to enter deeply operating system, or the users or developers. In this way, one or the other it is not possible to get something to "break" the system. In defense of the identity of users is Apple, which thoroughly checks each program before publishing it in the App Store. And although there is no guarantee that the skillful hacker can bypass check, but in most cases this security measure sufficient to repel the attacks, leading to the infection of the device and void the user's personal information. competitive systems in the security situation is tense, there are reports regularly on fake programs that instead of its functions will be shipped with the phone owner paid SMS or provide access to manage it from the outside. Google introduced Google applications store their own system verification Play malicious applications, but so far it does not allow completely get rid of malicious programs. 5 Pre-installed applications, many built-in iPhone applications are created so that most users do not have to look for alternatives. For example, a program for image management - allows you to easily view everything recorded telephone, edit photos: crop, rotate, and a new version of iOS 7 lets you remove red-eye and applying various effects. Until fairly standard set of features are added features that even with cameras usually are not available, for example, automatically group photos at the shooting location or image HDR. The latter have better contrast, will also help when you need to shoot a dark subject against a bright blue sky. believe that you will not have to look for other than the built-in email client, which originally was able to receive messages from the mailboxes competing systems - Gmail, Outlook, etc. 6 Multimedia and office packages Apple took two packages that cover the demands of the majority of users and are cheap. The application suite iLife , which consists of products such as iMovie, iPhoto and GarageBand (all are also available for PC), will be easily formed and organize your photos with your camera phone (iPhoto), install the video (iMovie) and even record own music (GarageBand). Each program in this package cost of 16 PLN, and run reliably and predictably. User Android smartphones will have to delve into applications to find as stable and functional equivalents.

Office suite iWork allows you to work with text documents (Pages), spreadsheets (Numbers) and presentations (Keynote). The cost for each application is 16 PLN. It is now available a beta version that allows you to save documents from your phone to iCloud, and then work with them on other devices iPhone, iPad and Mac. 7 The version of the Android smartphones have a variety of different versions of Android , which must be taken into account by the developers. Furthermore, even if you work in an environment of the same release system on various devices, the program must take into account the specifications: CPU, screen resolution, etc. Otherwise, the application may not work correctly or at all. Along with the transition to Android 4.x software problems have decreased, but about whether or not your application will work only need to worry holders of the cheapest models using weaker processors. But absolutely can not avoid them. Why the topic of advantages for the iPhone we're talking about competing systems? In the case of iOS even older models are supported for a long time - appearing this fall a new iOS 7 will support more iPhone 4, released in 2010.
