Who would have thought that what began from the invention of the wheel to facilitate travel, would
grow out to so many inventions that we would live in a world like ours today. One where you could
just get everything done right from your home with a click, your shopping, your assignments, just
anything that you like. That is how easy technology has made it for you to get stuff done and
honestly, nobody is complaining. Why would they? Life is so much easier.
The Perpetual Change:
This ease in life, however, keeps changing. I mean to say, the technology behind this ease, is subject
to a perpetual change. So, say you bought an Iphone worth a $1000 today. Just three years later, the
phone will not be worth as much because new models with better features and technology came in
that was so much better than that old one.
However, Iphones are one of the very few phone categories that do not lose its value as easily as
those in the android category. So, you will find it comparatively easily to sell iphone with still a
relatively good return on your investment than when you sell an android device. But the fact that
the technology can and does change as time passes so that old ones become obsolete still applies to
iphones and their price still falls.
Why IOS though?
Although this only minute fall in price as compared to a plummet in price for android is often used as
a point of discussion whenever android vs ios debate is sparked. The reasons for this small fall in
price may be many. For one, the fact that the iphone does not seem to be affected by age as much
as all the android phones are is a fact that nobody can deny. The IOS operating system of an iphone
grants it much greater life than a typical android. So, you could use your iphone for 6 years
consecutively without noticing a very huge fall in performance, but android devices, you will have to
change after every 2 to 3 years.
Of course, a reason for this is also the fact that the updates in android devices are much faster and
new and better features come out ever more frequently. But, the fact remains that the performance
in an android is affected adversely over the years in an android device.
Android vs IOS:
Although the aforementioned argument does involve a flavor of the debate that rages between
android and IOS users all the time, here is the real comparison between the two:
One of the very first points of discussion in an IOS vs Android debate is the processing speed. It
seems that the RAM sizes offered by android devices can be huge, yet the speed that they offer may
be less than what the smallest RAM sizes in IOS can offer. This is largely due to the fact that IOS
offers much better optimization when it comes to RAM space and can handle apps much better.
However, a great drawback of small RAM sizes in IOS is that it cannot keep the applications running
in the background. This contributes to the great speed of the iphone but can be frustrating when you
have to swap through multiple applications at the same time because it will take its loading time all
over again. The speeds offered by the IOS may also be due to Apple’s exclusive processors that allow
for maximum speed and optimize performance even further.

However, when it comes to the drawbacks of the IOS system, or the iphone in general, there are
several features that it lacks in comparison to android devices. For one, it will not allow you any
downloads other than from the itunes store, while android will allow you plethora of free
downloadable songs, videos and everything else for free. Moreover, IOS does not have a Bluetooth
functionality which is often termed as its biggest drawback because a Bluetooth is one of the most
basic functionalities in a phone. Next, it seems apple lags behind in some of the newest features of
modern phones, such as face unlock, fingerprint scanning, multi-screen, multi touch and so on.
Yet, the iphone is known for its amazing camera quality that allow the most natural results and its
superior performance around the world
