Android and iPhone are the two variants that are used worldwide when it comes to smartphones. Although users have differences while using both to their use and even it sometimes takes to a fight on social media or even in a group. But still, if we think in general which of these two variants is the best when it comes to performance, camera quality, sound and even playing games or opening apps then you will find people’s opinion stand divided on the device which they usually use. But still, we will try to give a review on which device is better on all the above-mentioned factors. We usually use Android but that does not mean that we will only give priority to that device as iPhones have their importance in the market.
Android is made by many manufactures but the iPhone is only made by Apple so in general, you will find that iPhone quality is much better to Android. Android is available in many models which are available from many different brands but for iPhone that models stay the same all over the world and you will never find it confusing. Because the Android models are made by many different companies so you will be getting many different software tweaks inside them but with iPhone that is not possible. So you will surely think that iPhone is the best in terms of Hardware but still, the most android phones which are high end give a performance that surely Apple can’t match out.
So which one is better? Obviously iPhone phones are better than the low-end Android phones but scenario changes when Android Flagships come in for the competition.
Updates are an important part of your phones. The base software versions need an update from time to time to integrate some useful features which could come in handy when the situation demands it. But as the trends go: Android update is available for the high-end devices first and then it is gradually passed on to the low-end devices. Many devices running Android never gets an update or there would be a big delay is rolling out the update but with iPhone be rest assured that the updates are timely and quick.
The reason behind quick update is that iPhone is owned by Apple which is the only maker of the devices and hence there are no modification in the software for a particular model and hence it is fast. But sometimes Apple does push in some untested updates which can make you phone buggy but still they provide the patch updates fast enough.
So yes in updates iPhone is much better than Android.

App Store for the iPhone has a limited number of apps when compared to the Google Play Store. But still having a low but quality apps which never breach your security is something that every user looks for while downloading the apps. So if you think that owning an Android gives you a lot of software to choose from then you are right but still, it puts your security at risk.
Surely the apps available on iTunes are costly as compared to android Play store and you can get even the free versions on android os some apps with ease. Another way of comparing them is in terms of development time, the android apps are made in parts and are then integrated into one, which makes them a little complicated and even costly but that surely doesn’t make iPhone apps development is cheaper. But the standards for iPhone are strict compared to Android.
So the iPhone wins this section comprehensively.
The gaming industry is on a boom with some good games coming out daily and many popular games like PUBG, Fortnite, Clash Royale, Clash Of Clans, Call Of Duty, etc are available on both the platforms. But for gaming in Android, you need to have higher-end phones that are capable of delivering high graphics and sound without any lagging issues.
But if we compare the same with iPhone then you need to have iPhone 6 and above to tackle the demand of the latest games. The games on the iPhone run smoother and even the quality of graphics is at peak on it.
But if we take in the gaming phones from Android then iPhone really don’t stand a chance to compete with it, so hence for low-end android models vs “iPhone6 and above” iPhone is a winner.
File transfer between iPhone and Android is something that is still considered to be difficult. The file transfer can be achieved with apps such as Xender, Shareit, etc that enable inter-platform sharing. But still, the scope of sharing apps, video, music and documents is still a problem with the iPhone. The security of the iPhone file system never allows it to share the downloaded file to another device which is a flaw in itself.
If we talk about Android then it can share apps, documents, zip, music and video with each other without any problem and hence it makes it a crowd favourite. The file-sharing mode with computer needs a USB for android which is quite easily available but for iPhone you need a lightning port for sharing the files and then also there is a limitation in sharing them.
So Android wins this section of debate with ease.

Customer support is something that always drives individuals towards Apple. The support provided by the iPhone store is always up to the expectation of the users as compared to android which delay the support time for its devices. The screen replacement or even the hardware change takes less time as compared to Android phone centres and the replaced parts are always genuine.
So hence the iPhone wins this segment too.
AI (Artificial Intelligence) is something that enables a phone to work more efficiently to the request made by the users. The Android support Google Assistant and iPhone have Siri. Siri is good in many manners but it is still in the learning stage so if we compare it to Google assistant then surely Google is an easy winner.
Setting alarms, multi-language integration, task creations etc are some of the cool features that Google offers with quality.
So Google is a winner in this section.
Battery optimization is something which comes with every Android device and nowadays iPhone is also providing it. The battery management in iPhones was once considered to be the best but as the technology trend changes Android chipsets are becoming more and more battery efficient.
So if we look for a battery management software that can effectively manage backgrounds apps then it is something that you can easily find in Play Store. Android over the years learned the trend for battery optimization and now their battery optimization technique is far better than Apples.
So hence we can surely say that Android battery management is something to look out for and iPhone still lacks in this.
Security is much-discussed topics nowadays and is something that every user look out for in their phone. Android phones security is being tightened over the years but still, it lacks somewhat when compared to iPhone. Apple puts a lot of effort with permissions and other features for securing the lock and file security. So in terms of security iPhone is much better suited than Android devices.

Price is something that every user looks for while buying any phone. iPhone are costly when compared to Android. Even the high-end devices of Android would not cost you that much when compared with the iPhone. Apples look for quality and hence it makes its products rate quite higher as compared to Android which looks for user engagement and hence makes the cost affordable for maximum people.
So in price section android is much cheaper than iPhone for sure.
