iPhone vs. Andriod

You are ready for an upgrade. You walk into the mobile store and your eyes are wandering around on all the gadget candy available to you. After playing around with a few devices it all boils down to either the iPhone or Android. Both of them feel so right in your hands and you cannot decide which one will come home with you. Perhaps I can assist with this vital decision you are about to make. A good question to ask yourself is: “What do you need this device to do?” Answering that question for you would be difficult, but we can look at some of the personality traits of these devices. This applies to tablets as well.

The iPhone is the popular kid in school. It is in shape; it has the hottest possible shell that comes in many colors and sizes. Choose the size wisely because once you buy it, you cannot increase the capacity. It is quite user friendly therefore it can get along with almost anyone. However, it won’t just hand you all the goods for free. There are many free apps in the app store, but you are going to have to pay for most of the tops ones. It can do almost anything you want, but for a price. Mobile browsing is not it’s strongest feature, but if you are not planning to surf the Internet too much then this won’t be a big issue. Not bad for a smart jock, but perhaps it won’t fulfill your nerdy needs.

The Android is the geek who is top of his class. It’s always researching and keeping up with technology. It has ambition and strives to break the barriers in the mobile world. It is not afraid to try new things, even if it means working its way through minor glitches. Best of all, you don’t have to put much thought into the brain size of this device. Most Droids come with expandable memory that provided some flexibility if you low-balled the anticipated space requirements needed and the browser works like a charm. It cost little to nothing to customize and make this device entertaining, but you have to know what you are doing. The iPhone does most of the work for you, but the Droid requires a little more thinking to get it to warm up to you.

Now it is up to you. Which device fits your personality and needs? The ‘iDevices’ maybe be a little harsh on your pockets, but if comfort and convenience is what you need then it’s worth the price. If you like customizing and do not mind a challenge, the flexibility of the Droid is what you need. What about a Windows phone you ask? I feel that one has a little growing up to do in the mobile world.
