While the dominating debate is certainly about Windows vs Mac, the other great rivalry in the technology world concerns your choice of mobile platform.
Apple pretty much owned the superiority in the mobile department with it’s iOS, till Google’s Android and Samsung’s marketing came into play.
We felt the need to highlight the pros and cons of each mobile OS for the consumers.
Starting off with the pros of Android (Cons of iOS)
More Devices To Choose From
Android, being open source, is used my most of the major smartphone manufacturing companies building everything from cheap phones to high-end flagship devices.

Competition in the Android space is present and it’s high, providing users the users value for money and the variety.
This is where Android really kicks in. You can customize practically anything. The launcher can be changed, and within the launcher there are themes, icon packs, gestures, and a lot more. You can have multiple apps for the same action and choose defaults.
If you really wanna dig deep, you can try rooting your device and install a custom ROM for much improved performance and utility.
