Top 10 Reasons Why Android Is Better Than iOS

The Top Ten
1 Freedom

Gee, I could say that even the Settings icon is better than iOS's. Is it even a competition?

I've actually made a way of comparing the two. With iOS, you are controlled by Apple. With Android, you control your device.

On Android, you are free to change your lockscreen, launcher, and pretty much every aspect of the phone's appearance.

Not a single more word, freedom is enough.

2 Can Download Apps from Third Party Sites

You can get apps not available on Play Store online, or you can even get paid apps free.

Or you can get old updates of games (such as Minecraft) for nostalgia purposes.


You can send files and contacts to another Android phone by touching them together.

4 File Manager

You can access your phone's file system, which can actually make your phone work like a Flash Drive.


You can wirelessly transfer music, photos, and videos from your phone to another phone, PS3 or PS4, or PC.

6 Data Alerts & Limits

You can set alerts to go off when you've used a certain amount of data and have it automatically shut data off at a certain point.

7 Replaceable Batteries

You can switch out your battery, SD card, or SIM card whenever you want by taking the back off.

8 LED Notifications

If you have a notification, an LED light will flash a certain color and speed according to the app. You will know you have a notification without having to turn your screen on

9 Cheaper

It's way better in almost every way, and some are only 20$

They give higher performance for lower price

10 Memory expansion
The Contenders
11 Infared
12 Better Emulation

It's a pain in the butt to download emulators for things like retro video game consoles on iOS, but on Android, you can just download emulators straight from the Play Store.

13 Android is Open Source
14 Easier Piracy
15 Less Version Requirements
16 Prices to fit your needs

Whereas iPhones released around the same time only vary by storage.

17 Expandable Storage

If you buy an iPhone, for example: Have fun only having 16 GB!

With Android devices, you can actually use SD Cards. Bought one with 16 GB? No problem, buy a 512 GB SD Card (depending on your device)

18 More bang for your buck
19 Can Run Anything from Any Platform

Provided it can handle it...nothing to do with the OS, more the hardware.
