Many people own a phone. They scroll through social media and their screen freezes up. They go to take a picture, but the quality is blurry and fuzzy. Then they consider getting a different brand, wondering which is better. Two of the most popular phone brands are Apple and Android. Both companies’ products have their flaws. They both have quality competitions all the time and there are multiple rating charts.  The latest Apple iPhones include, iPhone 7s, 8s and the X and more. Androids include phones like Samsung and Google Pixel. People are always comparing them to each other.

Many people say Apple phones are very good quality; they have multiple features other phones don’t have, for example, different ways to really capture the moment in a picture clearly. On the other hand, with Androids, many people complain that the pictures aren’t that great, and their screen freezes as well. However, there are some comments on the pros of Androids, like their universal chargers and their widgets. The Apple phone has about 222.9 million users, and Android has about 1 billion users. Android has more users than Apple, but that is due to the price of the iPhone compared to that of an Android. Forbes  says there are 30 million users from Apple switch to Android, but 112 million switches from Android to Apple.

Each phone is manufactured differently, with a unique way of being made. Apple does this a certain way and Android does another way. Both ways are fantastic, but the customers are always going to have their opinion. Some will support, and some will complain. The most common complaint for the Apple company are all the new product launches, the price, and all the hardware upgrades. The most common complaints with Android are the battery, the freezing of the screen (slow speed), and a faulty Wi-Fi connection.

The website Techworm says, “Battery drain is one of the most common problems in an Android smartphone. One of the major issues in an Android smartphone is slow speed. The reason behind the slow speed is installation of lots of unused Android apps.”

The Guardian says the biggest problem in iPhones is, “ The endless hardware upgrades: Thanks to those product launches, we now have cupboards full of obsolete iPhones, iPods, iPads, MacBooks, chargers and cables, plus 30 pairs of white headphones.” And they argue the price is too high, “The cheapest iPhone is still way beyond the reach of people in poorer parts of the world – places whose phone networks are likely to be expensive or unreliable, if they exist at all.”

In conclusion, Apple and Android will always be competing to win customers’ trust and affection. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and has a preference between the two. Each company has their flaws, but nice qualities as well.
