Android offers the most choice of handsets and price points, and is a much more open system. There are a lot of customisation options in the operating system, and if you’re techy and inclined to code, you can really make it your own. Or, if you’re not very tech-savvy, you can keep it how it comes. Android users are generally on the cutting edge of technology and get new features first.
iOS is the Apple iPhone operating system, and is the most popular in Australia. The beauty of it being a more closed system, with apps only available from the official App Store, is that it’s much safer and easier to navigate. There are plenty of customisation options still, but most iPhones generally operate in exactly the same way, which makes it easier to get support and grasp new features. iPhones get all the latest and greatest features after they’ve been perfected, so iPhones always “just work”.
“A bigger screen is better if you’re going to be using your phone to watch a lot of videos, or if you find it easier to read larger text. But at the same time you need to trade off with how much pocket and/or bag space you have.” - John Wong, Mobile at The Good Guys.
