You’ll often hear from people that the iPhone is just better than Android because it’s more polished, beautiful and the app environment is better but the counter to that is that Android gives you more flexibility and power. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak still considers the iPhone the best but even he’ll admit that Google and its partners have surpassed Apple in many aspects.
“My primary phone is the iPhone,” Wozniak told The Daily Beast. “I love the beauty of it. But I wish it did all the things my Android does, I really do.”
In particular, Wozniak said the voice commands on Android were better, as was the GPS capabilities. You can make up your own mind about Siri versus voice commands but I think that it’s clear that the free turn-by-turn navigation on Android is an amazing thing which iPhone owners would love to have.
Wozniak also said that some Android things are more complex to do but not by much and that if you’re willing to work at it, Android can offer more for you. Knowing Woz’s engineering and geeky background, I guess I’m not surprised that Android really appeals to him. While Ice Cream Sandwich is more consumer-friendly than previous versions, I still think that iOS is a bit easier to use than Android but Google’s platform will offer users more power if you dig into it.
What do you think, friends?
