Android versus iOS: The Ultimate Showdown

Cell phone owners all over the world can be divided into two categories; those who use Android devices and those who use IOS devices.

Each side has its fair share of loyal supporters. But which one is truly better? Let’s settle this debate once and for all:

Which One Is Affordable?

In addition to their features, Apple products are also known for their high prices. Just take a look at the starting price of an iPhone X ($1000). Even the costs of older models like iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8 are fairly high.

On the other hand, the prices of Android phones vary. Samsung Galaxy phones cost almost as much as the latest iPhone however there are low cost handsets available in the market as well. Therefore, from a pricing point of view, Android phones are a better option.

Apps

 

There are around 3.5 million apps available on the Google app store. In comparison, there are 2.2 million apps on the Apple store. On surface, Android is the clear winner however, it’s important to take the quality of the app into account as well.

All the popular apps are available on both of these platforms. In addition to that, popular games are always first released on Apple Store before they make their way to Google Playstore. Therefore, iOS is a winner in this department.

Battery Life

This one’s a little tricky since both IOS and Android devices have similar internal components and their battery life is more or less the same.

You might come across some people who claim that iPhones consume too much battery but there are iOS devices available in the market which use larger batteries. However, only Android phones allow you to actually see the amount of battery a single app consumes.

Android phones had an edge when it comes to charging since you could use fast and wireless chargers but all of that changed with iPhone 8.

Updates

 

When it comes to updates, Apple has an edge over Android phones. Almost ninety percent of iOS devices run the latest version of the software. On the other hand, only 0.5% of Android devices are running the latest software.

Customization

This is one area where Android has always trumped iOS. With Android phones, it’s very easy to make changes to your phone’s themes, add new widgets and change the user interface. With iOS devices you do not have as much freedom.

Why Is My Cell Phone Not Charging?

You were too busy watching videos on YouTube and didn’t realize that your phone’s battery had been almost died.

You get up, connect the phone to the charger and turn on the switch. Nothing happens. Sounds scary right? It’s natural to panic in these situations; after all you have no idea why the phone might have stopped charging.

There are several reasons you might be facing this problem. Let’s take a look at some of them:

Check the Power Source

We know how silly this sounds but there’s always a chance that the fault doesn’t lie with your phone or your charger. Check the power source. Maybe it doesn’t meet your phone charger’s power requirements.  

Problem with USB Port

Your phone might not be charging because the charger doesn’t come in contact with the insides of the USB port. Wondering why that might be happening?

Frequently connecting the charger and removing it from the port might result in damage to its internal components. Once this happens, your phone stops charging.

You might also face this problem in case there is an obstruction in the charging port. These obstructions create a barrier between the charger and the port and prevent the phone from charging.

It Might Be Because Of an App

Apps are great right? However, what you might not know is that some of them can wreak havoc on your phone. In certain cases, apps are the reason your phone might not be charging.

So how do you determine that the problem lies with a specific app? Start your phone on safe mode. In this mode, all the third party apps are disabled. See if the phone is charging in this mode. If yes, you know what the problem is.

Problem with the Software

Got the charging port repaired and yet the problem continues to persist? Maybe the problem is not related to hardware.

Sometimes a software crash also results in your phone not charging. Try restarting your phone and see if it solves the problem. Get in touch with an expert if you continue to face this issue.

Faulty Cables

Phone chargers are quite sturdy and they tend to last for a long time. However, the same cannot be said about the charger’s cables. Try using another charger’s cable. See if it solves the problem.
