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. - ryanrimmel

Not a single more word, freedom is enough. - Hamad_Sayed

I sense an Android fanboy. It's just a phone and people act like it's a religion :/

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. - ryanrimmel
