Comparison Between Android and IOS
Android and IOS are the most popular mobile operating system nowadays. Sometimes it’s became so confusing to choose one of them. Here a comparison has been made so that it become easy to choose one of them.
|Type||Mobile OS||Mobile OS|

|Platforms||32- and 64-bit: ARM architectures, x86, x86-64, MIPS and MIPS64||64- and 32-bit ARM architectures:

The above comparisons are only the technical comparisons. According to the User Experience it is seen that android is a bit slower then IOS . The reason behind this is, Android uses java and java is excellent but a bit slow. On the other hand IOS use a language named swift which has been designed for speed. Â Android gives you the opportunity to tweaking your OS in every ways whereas you cannot even use IOS without Apple’s permission. If you need a independent mobile os with unlimited features and you will consider the speed a little bit then Android is here but if you think that you need a OS that will give you ultimate speed and you will consider some feature limitation then IOS is here.
This isÂ Â my opinion. May be your opinion is different then mine and Always the Choice is Yours.
