Is Android Or IPhone More Popular?


More Smartphone Makers Use Android.

A large contributor to Android’s popularity is the fact that many more smartphone and device manufacturers use it as the OS for their devices.

In contrast, iOS is limited to Apple-made iPhones and iPads only.

Apple’s iOS continues to dominate Google’s Android‎ on mobile platforms in the United States. A new data for December 2018 shows that iOS remains the most popular mobile operating system in the U.S. – iOS held a share of 56.91%.

Is Android or iPhone better?

Because of that, Android phones vary widely in size, weight, features, and quality. Premium-priced Android phones tend to be as good as the iPhone in terms of hardware quality, but cheaper Android options are more prone to problems. Of course iPhones can have hardware issues, too, but they’re generally higher quality.

In a very short time Google’s mobile operating system (OS) Android has become the number one choice for smartphones. Google’s Android has overtaken Symbian and Windows mobile in terms of number of users. Unlike other operating systems that are protected by lots of copyrights, Google chose to keep Android open for all.

This means that more people use Samsung devices and more Samsung devices are sold. iPhones seem to be more popular in developed countries and among younger people, but because Samsung is cheaper and has more products, more people still use Samsung.
