Hard to say ... you know, Apple iPhone, that's a a lot of restrictions from apple ... Android is opensource - no restrictions .... iPhone is heavily restricted, Android isn't. There's only 4 iPhones, Android has hundreds. iPhone isn't very customizable, Android is. iPhone can't install Custom ROM…'s (These change the whole look of the phone OS) iPhone can't. ;) (MORE)
I think the iPhone is better because it never crashes, never gets destroyed with malicious software, is easy to download media onto, and it just works. Anroid may have some cool features, but Apple does not have these so that they have time to perfect their features and make them as flawless as pos…sible. (MORE)
Android 2.0 of course. Every update is made to offer new features and improvements. So, comparing both of them, Android 2.0 brings a lot more things like: . Bluetooth 2.1 support . additional resolution . HTML 5 support . Microsoft Exchange support . Quick Contacts Interface and of course …faster processing and better optimization . (MORE)
Depends on what carrier you want? Specify a bit more! But if you want the ability to customize your phone to the maximum extent then Android is your go. If you just want a list of apps and a closed environment then iOS is your go.
Android is not phone ... Android is mobile operating system from Google Android operating system is inside Motorola Droid phone, HTC Desire , Samsung Galaxy S, ...
No. Android has far better applacations, hardwear, layout and performance. Blackberry app world has just over 500 aplactions, whereas android market had over 3000,000. Blackerry are also prone to slugish behaviour and constant freezing. I'd recomend an android, as you'll get a much better smartphone… :) x (MORE)
I would say iPhone becuz the Android crashes a lot and trust me my friend had it. The Android may look cooler (not) but the iPhone is better and doesn't mess up anything helped thank you hope this helped :) I had to improvise a little.
There's more or less the same difference between Android and iPhone as between PC and Mac: PC / Android: Freedom + Not so good looking Mac / iPhone: No freedom (at all) + Elegant Take into consideration that Apple devices cost significantly more. But Apple boasts far more apps than Android. …It's up to you to choose your phone according to your personal preference. (MORE)
It depends. But in my opinion Android is a little better, because it is more affordable and has a slightly better operating system. But the two are about the same.
Note that this question asks for an opinion. Below the line is one opinion. The comment about the type of glass would refer to a particular hardware manufacturer. There are many manufacturers who make devices which run Android (Motorola, HTC, Samsung, to name a few). There is only one hardware manuf…acturer for Apple. There are certain Android devices which can be at least as expensive as a similar Apple device. But there are many Android devices which are inexpensive. The lower end models will not be able to do as much or run as fast, though. . Yes, Android runs faster and is much less expensive than apple. Apple is expensive and the screens are very breakable, unlike Android, the screens are maxi glass so they are really nice! That's my opinion, but my mom brother and sisters like apple better. (MORE)
Depends on your criteria e.g. For Apps: Apple, For More Freeness Android is In my opinion who has an android phone and a iPod touch I think android is better
Just around a year back it was all about Apple and its products like iPad, iPhone, iPod touch etc these all products are iOS based and no doubt Apple made the finest quality but now scenario is completely different. Apple has lost its influential image. Android has changed the whole concept for Tabl…et Pcs and smartphones even for TV. Android devices are now the dominating products of technology market. Apple products are awesome but they appeals a lot but they are very strict and provide limited access on the other hand android devices aren't only appealing and cool but also provides flexibility. Android OS is an out standing open sources that allows to change it according to your will. Android simply damaged the value of hardware brand names, people are less bothered about hardware company name. Even when it comes to tablet PC or Google TV people don't consider hardware much. Its about the Os, Features, apps and interface. There is list of manufacturing companies like TMobile or Ozitechnology which aren't even globally famous like Motorola, Samsung, HTC or Apple but still those companies are doing well with android based devices.

It depends on what you want out of the device...Also if you want something cool and your in your teen or older years, an android tablet is the best. An Ipod is good but it cost so much and the only way you could get the music and videos and to start it up, you must have itunes. Some people cant g…et itunes. For the android tablet you just need to start it up normally. You dont neeed to install any software. You could put any files on any computer or anything. Also newer versions of android like 2.3 or newer is even more cool. ANDROID IS THE BEST (MORE)
I am a phone salesperson, so I've dealt with a lot of phones. The iPhone is cool and all, but they have limited memory and apps. Android phones have a larger useable part of the screen, more free apps, and everything just meshes together better. The newer androids are also much faster, and there is …no 4G iPhone. IPhones are the cool thing, but for better battery life and usage, go with a droid. IPhones do not have keyboards, which some androids do. You simply cannot compare an older android to the iPhone, use the HTC Rezound or the Droid Bionic to compare. Androids win in every way. I have seen way too many customers come in with cracked iPhone screens, so maybe that has to do with my bias too, lol. (MORE)
The question asks for an opinion. Below is one answerer's opinion. There may be others. See the discussion section, for example.... . No, because with Apple you have to buy the ipad or iphone which are the only devices you can buy, and there are both very expensive. With Android you have more devic…e options like the Samsung Galaxy, Motorola Xoom, Toshiba Thrive, and Black Berry Play Book. Android also power the two new digital readers, the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet. The over all price of Apple is $400 - $700, while with Android the prices are from $250 - $1000+. Also Android is, in my opinion easier to use than an Apple. Finally, Android is more open to installing apps from outside sources and it is legal to jailbreak or root Android devices. The Android Market may not have as much of a selection of apps, but the price on the apps tend to be cheaper. With Apple you can only download apps from the App Store (Apple's Market), it is also illegal to jailbreak you Apple device. So, in answer to your question Android is better than Apple. (MORE)
Because Symbian OS is essentially closed-source, you would need toconvert an Android app to make it work in an Symbian OSenvironment.
I have a iPod Touch and an Android phone and I prefer Android. Android has more customization like live wallpapers, widgets, a home screen iOS is much more restricted you couldn't until iOS 4 where you could change the wallpaper, iOS is only good because it has x1.5 the amount of apps that an…droid has.

wait for Nokia to corporate with "android" or "windows phone 7" in order to use
apple apps r better bcuz i had the iphone and an android phone and i typed in grand theft auto however i got a ton from apple and none from android thats stupid becuz apple haz it and android dosent so prefer apple
Android because it becoms more and more popular, therefore you have a variaty of apps abd games to choose from!
short answer: No Long answer: Because of the overwhelming growth of the Android platform in number of devices, apps and supported products, the iPhone and apple have been slow to react. in this slowness, they made the fatal error that the android platform was just a small bump in the smartphone… road. However, now it's apparent by the current numbers that Android now outnumbers iphones by almost 15%. These numbers and figures may not mean much to you, but what does matter is that mostly all new high end android handsets now have 4G radios, dualcore processors, better graphics, and bigger screens. In addition the android market will surpass the iPhone app store in number of apps in September of this year. (MORE)
Symbian OS was a popular mobile operating system in the early daysof smartphones, used by many manufacturers at the time but mostlyby Nokia. It ran on ARM platforms, and it had its own native(Symbian) kernel. Android OS is one of the most popular operatingsystems today, used by many manufacturers. I…t runs on multipleplatforms, and has a Linux-based kernel. To date, the Nokia 808Pureview (released in 2012) is the last smartphone to use SymbianOS. (MORE)
Android and Symbian are both open-sourced OS. Symbian at the timewas the most popular mobile OS worldwide (Nokia being its biggestproponent) until Android surpassed it around 2011. Part ofSymbian's fall was that much of its licensed source code wasrestricted to only member companies. In comparison, …Android'slicensed source code is relatively free of restrictions, whichhelped spur its use among manufacturers, carriers, and thedeveloper community. (MORE)

Android is a modern, Google - based operating system used in phones and Tablets which is open source. Android is the most versatile and popular of the new, modern mobile phone OS. Symbian is a proprietary (Nokia) operating system for mobile phones and on 11 February 2011, Nokia's CEO Stephen El…op, a former Microsoft employee, unveiled a new strategic alliance with Microsoft, and announced it would replace Symbian and MeeGo with Windows Phone 7. This places doubts over the future of Symbian which is now looking a bit dated as an OS. (MORE)
Right now the iPhone is much better than the Android. It has tons of appps and faster Internet speeds and can do everything better than the Android (accept for maliciously dangerous customizations). AND iPhone is getting a software update in the fall (iOS 5 with iCloud) which will make it even bette…r than the Android. I had to improvise this answer a little. (MORE)
Android phones are manufactured by Many companies. windows phones are also manufactured by many companies. The thing is that These two are two types of operating system for any smart phones. android phones have a larger count over windows phone. Main thing behind the success of android phone is… that it is more user friendly than any other phone. android phones available in the market is also a lot powerful. windows phones are hard to use. Windows comes up with a start menu the new rectangular box thing. While android comes with a home screen. Both of these have a log screen. Android is manufactured by Google and has the largest amount apps in any of the phone platform. Android is more like your chrome browser in your pocket. While windows phone is more like Windows explorer in your pocket. We know which is better I do prefer android. (MORE)
Android definitely they have a stronger operating system and have adobe flash players thatbyou can install them and sometimes they already come installed on the phone.
Android and symbian is different System, so if you want to play android game on it, you must use android emulator on your symbian.
android os is best for games and apps offering up to 20,000 aps (roughly), where as windows offers only 1,000 apps. But dont let that put you off though, windows is simple, effective at tasks and sutible for facebook users also, windows os phones have most of the time faster processers than android …phones with up to 1ghz or more. Android hands down wins with games depending on what phone you own. But this is a matter of opinion and is difficult to say which is better as i have had an android phone (Galaxy ace) and a windows phone, (nokia lumia 710). Hope this helps :) (MORE)
In the end, it all depends on what you use a smartphone for. If media capture, download, and playback is what you want, then iPhone is definitely superior. Android Phones, however, are sometimes far more useful than iPhones in basic phone functions. Calling, texting, web browsing, etc. can be done …better on such phones. (MORE)
Well to my opinoin I think they need a little comparing. Well for Android its very customizable you can get launchers and change some effects like a sliding effect you can make the sliding effect different when you slide to another page you can make it so theres another side of a box. Another thing …you can do is Change the dock you can make put a wallpaper in the dock or change the icons. Iphones you cannot have the feature to do that. You can only change where you want your icons to be or what you want on your dock. Another thing you can put on your android is Widgets unlike Iphones you may not. Androids their phones change a lot but they come in different carriers so you dont have to worry about changing the phones. Iphones you may get a lot of Applications that you cannot get in android phones. Thats one feature I have always liked in Iphones they have quite a lot of applications you can not get in Android Phones. Iphone you can do things do. But lets go and check on their Good things. The new Iphone has something called a siri. Its a voice command. People think it is better than google voice command and I agree because it is very good. Another thing is that Its not to complicating. Unlike the android phones these days their phones you have to go on the app menu to find the app you want unlike the iphone you can just slide to a page and their you go you found the applicatins. The android phones if you want to delete an app you have to go to the settings page and then go to applications and then you delete your apps unlike the iphone you just hold your finger on a app you downloaded and then you see X marks and then delete. Something they both have is an Notification bar you just slide down. There you have all of your notifications. The Iphone notfication bar is a little more cooler you have stocks and weather on there. Messages and missed calls will pop up there if you have unread messages. Android you just have setttings and Missed Calls also Unread messages and email. One other thing about Iphones notfication bar is that you do have emails on there but you also get news. One other thing they both have is a nice Market store. Only on the iphone you get apps But the android market you can get apps and movies. But there is a itunes app in the iphone that you can get movies in it. For me I approve for an Iphone if you want a more easier phone android if you want a more customizable phone and that you dont always want to change. (MORE)
No Symbian devices can't be converted into Android because the runtime with Symbian and Android OS is different.
No. Your iPhone may be a little delicate without a case, but in OS terms, your iPhone will last two years without being overridden with dangerous software or thrown against the wall in anger.
Trust Me Android Is Much Better, Why! Because It's Obviously! Blackberrys Are Hard To Right With, Cause Keyboard Is Small. Internet Is Rubbish And YouTube Is Slow! Small Screen. Not Good Quality Apps, Can't Even Get Angry Birds! Boring Design! Can't Add Many Things To Home Screen! Slow… Web Browser Speed! People Only Get It Cause Of BBM And Copying! I Think BBM Is Stupid, Because It's Gay! And Just For Blackberrys Not Other Phones, It's Selfish! Cost A Lot, Rip Of, Aspecialy On Contract And BBM Android Is Way Better! Touch Screen Customizable More! Easy To Use! Amazing Web Browser Fast YouTube Speed Great Quality Apps. Android Have Different Idears And Models, They Love To Experiment! Fast 3G They Work With One Of The Worlds Best Company Google! Thank You! (MORE)
An Android tablet is way better. All Android tablets are more customizable, have cameras, voice commands, faster processors, have more internal memory, more external memory, more apps, accept flash drives, SD cards, and more. Some Android tablets even have 4G LTE. The Kindle Fire does not offer any …of these things. (MORE)
Android is for phones, while Windows is for computers. Totally different devices. If you meant Android vs Windows Phone 7, then I don't know
IPhone 5 has WAY BETTER quality in video footage and pictures. Android however lacks appearance and awesomeness!!! Get an iPhone 5 if you can!
They have better and notifications and slightly better customization. According to the charts, that has not been enough to please the users though.
If u are listening to music you can put the speaker end in the bottom of a shallow cup. It will project the noise.
It depends on what you want for your phone. I think that Android is better. Why? Because it offers you the unique opportunity to personalize your phone, to download a lot of applications... Bada also has some advantages: stability, fluidity and most of Bada Phone are cheap. Hope that this answer is …helpful, Atyq (MORE)
It really comes down to personal preference between an Android device and an iOS based device. Both devices offer touch sentive navigation, have quality app stores, fast Internet browsing, email and navigation. Recently Android based systems pulled ahead of iOS due to larger screen sizes supported b…y the various Android supporting manufacturers, but with the upcoming release of the iPhone 5, it is expected that the playing field will be levelled with what Apple releases. Android traditionally has been targetted toward a more tech-savvy or business oriented audience, boasting features such as Near Field Communication etc and strong Google service based integration, but Apple is certainly expected to up the technical offering with the iPhone 5 later this month.

The iPhone is a device. Android is an operating system, it is not a device. It is impossible to compare hardwares between a device and an operating system. However, you can compare the camera applications. Well, here is the strong points of the iPhone's camera application: 1. HDR 2. Panorama… mode 3. Luminosity effects And the Android 4.2 camera app: 1. Sphere mode (you can take few pictures and assemble it as spheres). 2. Special effects. Hope that this answer is helpful (MORE)
This is not really a good comparison. It's like asking if a telephone is better than a TV. OK, well Android is an operating system, based on Linux (similar to Unix). Java is a programming language - a set of rules that programmers use to create the programs (apps). The operating system controls the …basic functions and how the phone (or tablet) interacts with files and the user. (MORE)
Neither Java nor "Android" games are "better" in any sense; Android games run on Android (but not other systems), while Java games run on other systems (but not Android). The actual quality of the software depends on the software developers, game designers, and so on, not the tool being used.
It depends what you are looking for. Here are some bullets to help you decide. iOS . high reliability . high customer satisfaction . easy to learn to use . extremely resistant to malware . one unified App Store . one unified Music Store (not including third party apps) . easier to updat…e without risk of corruption . ability to update to the latest software even on a 4-year-old iPhone . heavy integration with other Apple products with iCloud and iMessage . much better free customer support via Apple employees or volunteers on website Android OS . highly customizable . better notification system . higher selection of devices (keep in mind many will not run the latest software that is boasted in ads) .

Yes, apple has a lot less customisation features than android, android allows you to do a lot more and has a better design. This is coming from someone who used to use apple w u I then found Samsung and now only ever uses android
Android most likely. As long as users keep switching to tablets andmobiles android seems to have an edge. PHP doesn't have thetechnology yet to penetrate the mobile and tablet applicationdevelopment
Both Android and Windows based phones are great! It is all a matter of preference if you like Android or Windows based software.
Yeah, now time the android phone is stand on the fist stage forphones. The apple is not good compare with it high price. While theandroid smartphone use the low price and also buy the some featureapple's phone feature. So, more and more people like buy thesmartphone android phone.
