When looking for a new phone many of us have a bit of a dilemma Android or iPhone there is no doubt they are the two most popular types of phones on the market.
With the release of the first generation of iPhone there was no choice, it was a superb ground breaking piece of kit.
But as every next generation of iPhone has been released the gap between the iPhone and Android phones has gotten even closer, to the point now where we are on the iPhone 4s which was not the great technological leap I was expecting from the iPhone 4; sure it has a few more bells and whistles such as Siri, but while Apple has really made few hardware advances Android has been come on in leaps and bounds.
Maybe this is not down to the software so much but the hardware; we already have Android Quad core phones, 3D cameras, and higher resolutions which generally come at a price on par with or less than an iPhone 4s.
The iPhone 4s is a very good phone with a lot of features, plus it’s made by Apple, which is a good selling point in itself, but in light of the competition is it really worth going for an iphone?
Currently as the 4s stands I would prefer an Android based phone such as the HTC EVO 3D, but that said it would be very interesting to see the iPhone 5 which if Apple really want to keep their market share really needs to be something more than an iPhone 4s with a few more bells and whistles, and if the release of the latest iPad is anything to go by it could the phone we are all waiting for.
Android or iPhone Conclusion
If you’re currently using an iPhone and wish to upgrade now I would recommend checking out some of the latest Android based phones, bear in mind that it’s a different system and can take a little getting used to, but if you persevere it’s well worth it.
If you currently use an iPhone and would prefer to stick with Apple and are prepared to wait for the iPhone 5, wait and see what the specs are before making your choice.
I’ve tried not to make the review seem too biased, currently I use an Android phone, I switched from Apple around 6 months ago as I dropped my iPhone and was not prepared to pay so much money for a phone, it has taken a little getting used to the platform change, but would I move back to Apple? Android or iPhone it’s a tough choice
Probably not, my main niggle with Apple is why does everything have to be so locked down? Of course you can unlock and jailbreak your iPhone, but you should not need to.
Moving over to Android has made me realize sadly how locked down the iPhone was.
Not only this, but with the iPhone you have the choice of one phone, with Android you have the choice of many phones, by many manufactuers such as Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, plus many more.
