Apple iPhone 5 might have manage to attract people attention around the world. But for tech junkie that happen nothing more because of Apple’s brand power. When it comes to innovation, Apple iPhone 5 is way behind most recent Android handset. Do not believe in my words? Then why don’t you check my 10 complete reason why Android is better than iPhone 5 below.
Screen - iPhone 5 is packed with bigger screen that it’s predecessors. But when you compare it to Android, this handset looks like a tiny toys. Most android phone are now packed with minimum 4.0″ display. Droid RAZR M, which is considered as compact handset, is currently carry on 4.3″ touch screen.
NFC - Stands for Near Field Communication, this feature allow you to share data or make mobile transactions by tapping your phone. NFC is currently available exclusively for Android. For iPhone fans, you might have to wait until 2013 when Apple announce iPhone 6 with (probably) NFC on it.
Desktop - For the first time in iPhone history, Apple is finally allow users to put their own app shortcut on the dock. In other words, iPhone 5 got more icons that the previous device. But for Android users, this kind of feature is so last years. Android allow you to customize your handset in any way you want. Put widgets, make your status bar transparent, change desktop indicator, even screen animation!
Docks and Ports – Unlike any other modern day smartphone, Apple decide to use special ports for iPhone. The company decide to call it as “lightning.” It means that you can just buy iPhone 5 charger around the street. So you better careful with your current charger. On the other hand, Android using micro USB port for the connectivity features.
Keyboard - With iPhone 5, you will be stuck with iOS 6 default keyboard. Lucky for you if you feel comfortable with it. But if you want to get a replacement, you better forget it guys. On the other hand, Android allow users to install any third party app to replace Google’s own! There are plenty of options available on Play Store. You may use Swype, Swiftkey, or Thick Buttons. Each has their own pros and cons.
Attachment- It is quite strange that iPhone 5 only allow you to attach video and images on the default email service. You won’t find similar thing on Google’s Android. Users are free to upload anything that they want, from Powerpoint presentation to .zip package file. If Gmail is not good enough, you can always rely on third party app like Dropbox or QuickOffice.
Sharing - Android allow you to share any files with any apps that installed on your handset. So, let’s say that you have a picture or photo on your SD card. Open it with gallery app and press share button. You can tap on lot of options like Pinterest, Facebook, Picasa, Zune, or any apps that you have on your handset. On the other side, iPhone 5 Safari browser only allow you to share via Facebook, Twitter, Google, Flickr, Pinterest, and Google Talk.
Files and Folder Access – Plug in your Android into the computer, mount it as USB storage and you will be able to gain access to all folder in your SD card. But if you do the same thing with iPhone 5, you will only see DCIM folder a.k.a picture folder. This is mean that Apple only allow you to drag and drop images!
Feedback - Most Android handset, even the old ones, offer haptic feedback feature. The screen will vibrate when you make a tap, so you will be able to tell that your touch is already registered. This should be very useful to avoid unnecessary double tap. On the other hand, iPhone 5 offer nothing but flat and cold screen.
Notes - iPhone 5 is a great android handset, but you won’t be able to do free hand writing on it. Off course you can buy compatible stylus, but it will offer you with nothing more than thinner fingers. On the other hand, Galaxy Note II and LG Optimus Vu are both great representation for Android that allow you to create your own scribble notes. This function is fluid and deeply integrated into the system.
