Ah, the age old debate. Apple vs Android? Will it ever end? Probably not…
In the video above, my brother (Android Fanboy) and I (Apple Addict) had a little friendly competition over whose device was better*. We thought we would see which phone had the best shortcuts (unlocking device and opening camera) before the LG G4 put my iPhone 6 to shame. The open nature of android devices lets users do things such as have animated backgrounds (this is now available on iPhone 6S’), change the font and even have multiple active screens open.
While Apple does have some redeeming qualities (easy to use and navigate, good quality camera, and seamlessly (debatable) syncing to other Apple devices), you have to wonder if the closed nature of iOS is driving users away. For more information about locked devices and generative platforms, take a look at this post from last semester.
