Why iPhone 6 and iOS 8 cannot replace Android

Meet Hackers
It has been a while now that iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iOS
8 have been released. Until the previous versions of iPhone, the phones had
much smaller screens as compared to Android phones that were termed as Phablets
since they look a combination of phones and tablets. Now that Apple has
launched a larger phone and a more customisable operating system in the form of
iOS 8 (as compared to the previous versions of iOS), Apple is trying to bridge
the gap that has been created by bigger and better Android Phones.
However despite the new phones from Apple, these still
cannot replace the quintessential Android Phones. Android Phones for one have
much better resolution and pixel per inch. This makes the images look sharper
and therefore the display of several of the Android devices are much better
than those of the iPhones.
Secondly, Android phones are much cheaper that iPhones. When
it comes to value and utility, Android devices are much cheaper than iPhones. Android
phones are much more cost effective and this makes them a better ‘value for
money’ proposition. In most of the cases, high specification Android phones
come at almost half the price of an iPhone 6.
Batteries of iPhones cannot be removed and if there is any
issue with the battery, the process to replace it is much more complex. Similarly,
iPhones only sport internal memory and do not have slots for expanding memory
by inserting external memory cards. Also, most of the Android phones have more
RAM than iPhones.


Customisation is the most important feature of Android
phones. Android is open source and it is easy to make applications compatible
with Android as compared to iOS. Likewise, due to its open architecture,
Android is much more flexible and robust.
