Everyone seems to be using Android phones these days and prefer not to go with iOS because of some of the reasons listed here. In actual fact, I’ve come to realize that most of those who criticize iOS do not actually have it and never used it once. Quite unlike iOS, it’s like the Android fever is spreading and almost every dick and harry carries an Android device around.
I am a fan of iOS and I love it. Here, I’m going to list the reasons why the Androids sucks.
1. Exposure To Virus & Malware
One great thing about iOS is security and even in the App Store, there’s no single antivirus software for iOS because practically, iOS does not get attacked by virus and malwares. By downloading and installing files or plugging your phone into a computer through USB, your Android device can be infected with virus. This is the reason why you can see different types of antivirus apps in the Play Store for Android because they already know the OS is not protected from virus attack. Any one can send you a virus from the internet or through bluetooth. Sucks, right?
2. Low Quality Apps
Another sour side of Android OS is the amount of crappy apps that fill the Play Store. Anyone can just decide to create an Android application and get it approved for users to download. The play store is poorly regulated leading to loads of apps that may even brick your device. Some of these apps can even steal your personal on your devices.
3. Software Updates Not For All Android Devices
As you can see, Google might decide to launch a new OS for the Android but this will never be available for all devices at once. Someone using a Samsung Galaxy S4 may get the update while Samsung Galaxy S3 users may have to wait for some months before they can enjoy the new features that comes with the update. Even worse, Sony Xperia Acro users may not get the updtae till after 6 months. This isn’t the case with iOS that rolls out firmware update for all devices (iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini, iPod Touch, Apple TV) all at once. You don’t waste your time waiting for a firmware update while other users are enjoying it already.
4. Battery Consumption
We already know that having a good battery on mobile gadgets is the one of the ways to enjoy its functionality fully. I must confess that one of the reasons why I prefer the iPhone over Android devices is because the iPhone battery is already sealed and cannot be removed easily… this is because under normal circumstances, your battery should serve you pretty well and you don’t need an extra.
Battery consumption on Android OS can be very annoying.
5. Less Apps And Games
It’s often said that the Play Store is about to catch up with App Store but the gap between these two applications world is more than little. The number of apps and games available for iOS is far greater than Android OS and this is one major edge iOS has over Android OS. Quite a lot of developers prefer to develop for iOS and the ecosystem even encourages development of more quality apps.
Apart from the fact that there are less apps and games for Android, the quality of those apps too is something else.
Seriously, I think Android OS sucks and it’s simply overrated. What do you think?
