Today customer is more concerned and choosy on the basis of software rather than hardware while shopping a new smartphone.
Are you a Apple fan? Are you a Android Geek? or you are a Windows supporter…
As you may already know: Windows, Android and iOS are the top three operating systems available today on the mobile market.
all though it’s an unavoidable truth that we also tend to focus on the hardware when we’re going to buy a new smartphone. A high-resolution display, attractive design and fast hardware dominate our thoughts long before the software running on the device. But today we will talk about operating systems of the smartphones.
ANDROID VS IOS VS WINDOWS 10 MOBILE: DESIGN AND UI
Android offers the greatest amount of customization. You can arrange same type of apps in a drawer like messaging apps. Also you can apply custom themes which will make your UI more beautiful. Moreover, Different type of animations are available with different themes
Apple does not follow the same. Customization is not allowed in iOS. Though UI is very good but user swho want new look every day, they will not like it. Simply swipe around to find your app or you can search it.
Windows 10 Mobile has a completely different design from android and iOS. Its homescreen is a tiled interface, with resizable tiles which flips to provide more info about the app. You can group apps in windows also just like android and iOS.
iOS is the most lucrative platform for developers: the Apple Store charges slightly more for its app downloads than the Google Play Store and it’s easier to develop for. Therefore, the most cutting edge apps usually appear on Apple devices first.
Android users in some cases have to wait for release but as Android is open source so developers can easily access code use to develop apps. Due to being open source a large variety of apps can be found on Google Play Store unlike iOS and windows with limited variety of apps.
Although you can run any Windows application on a Windows 8 phones, the number and quality of apps designed for touchscreens available through the Windows Store simply can’t match Google’s or Apple’s. At the time of writing, the Windows Store had 168,000 apps compared to 1.2 million for Apple and 1.3 million for Android.
Android and iOS stores are growing very fastly but windows store is not that much productive.
One of the biggest security threats to mobile devices comes from the downloading of malicious apps into phones.
Apple is the most strict in terms of apps in app store. Every downloadable app, available on the Apple App Store is subject to strict security protocols – so the chances of you downloading a corrupt application from store is very less.
Android also is very critical in examination of apps even though its system is open source.
Windows is also very strict and variety of tests are conducted before providing it openly in store.
Each OS has its own positive and negative points and it only depends on the person according to its demands. iOS is very simpler in design and good in security but expensive whereas Android is highly customizable and secure. Whereas windows is also very good but due to lack of applications on windows store it lags behind from iOS and Android.
