  • If you're ready to create a website, head over to wix.com/go/infographics2019 to try

  • out one of their premium plans right now.

  • As of May 2019 the market share for phone operating systems is really only a two horse

  • race - iOS and Android, with Android controlling just over 75 percent of the market and iOS

  • with just under 23 percent.

  • Kai OS and some others like Nokia's OS were next with a negligible market share.

  • It's become a matter of fact that in this world there are Android fans and iOS fans,

  • and people don't tend to cross over to the other side.

  • We all know folks who would never give up their iPhone for say, a Samsung, and we all

  • know people who tell you iPhones are overpriced and more of an accessory than a necessity.

  • But which operating system is really the best?

  • That's what we'll try and find out for you.

  • Before we get to the pros and cons of each system let's first have a look at the history

  • of these two OS's.

  • We'll start with Android.

  • The company Android Inc. was founded in 2003 by a bunch of guys, but the one you've most

  • likely heard of is Andy Rubin.

  • At first the idea was an operating system developed for digital cameras, not phones,

  • but soon the creators changed their minds and announced that their technology would

  • soon rival Microsoft Windows Mobile.

  • Not many people believed that and it wasn't easy getting this company going.

  • In fact, it's been reported that they were so broke they couldn't afford to pay for

  • their office space and even the founders' closest friends didn't really believe they

  • were on to something.

  • Google however, did believe in their OS and acquired it from Android Inc. along with key

  • members of the company.

  • There was a lot of secrecy surrounding Android and its acquisition but the rumors started

  • to get out that Google was developing its own software for mobile phones, and little

  • did we know how quickly this software would be in most of our pockets.

  • Then in 2007 Apple dropped a bombshell and released its iPhone.

  • Prior to this, Google's operating system was developed only to run on standard phones,

  • not ones with touchscreens.

  • When the iPhone came out the Android team knew that they had a lot of work to do.

  • That same year a group called the Handset Alliance came together and made the bold statement

  • that they would createthe first truly open and comprehensive platform for mobile

  • devices.”

  • Members of this alliance were Google, Samsung, HTC and Motorola as well as others.

  • They weren't just full of hot air either, and soon we saw a bunch of different versions

  • of Android.

  • These were "Cupcake", "Donut", "Eclair", and "Froyo".

  • Later we gotKit-Kat.”

  • You might be wondering why computer software was named after things that you eat, and Google

  • later answered that saying it was because the mobile devices running this software made

  • life sweet.

  • The first Android phone was the T-Mobile G1, or HTC Dream as it was called outside of the

  • USA.

  • The reviews were mixed, but many people did say that theOS had lots of potential.

  • Now for the iPhone and iOS.

  • In 2005 the one and only Steve Jobs had a huge job to do - shrink the Mac and make the

  • perfect handheld device.

  • In 2007, Apple announced this new phone along with its operating system.

  • The first of the systems was called iPhone OS 1, and unlike Google, Apple didn't go

  • for sweet-sounding names and just kept counting up in numbers.

  • So far we have only mentioned phones, but as you know both operating systems ran on

  • various mobile devices.

  • The first iPhones were praised as a spectacular device and only added to the mystique of Jobs

  • who for some was like a techno-god.

  • You just have to read those early reviews to find fawning praise about how the iPhone

  • was sleek, fantastic, innovative, a superb device for surfing the web, like nothing else

  • before it.

  • Gizmodo wrote, “I'm thumbing through my own iPhone like a teenager with his first

  • Playboy.”

  • It was in a league of its own.

  • It wasn't perfect and lacked a few features, but hey, no one was saying negative things

  • about this device except perhaps one thing.

  • This was the fact it was so darn expensive, coming in at a base price of $499.

  • Compare that to the first Android phone which launched at $179.

  • But the price didn't matter to many as iPhones were being hailed as the future of mobile

  • devices.

  • That's kind of been the story ever since, but as we've seen in the years since, many

  • high-end Android phones are also now very expensive.

  • They might have cost a lot of cash, but that didn't stop people buying the iPhone.

  • If you look at the best selling phones of all time you'll see that it's topped by

  • early Nokia phones.

  • And it makes sense, you could throw them against a wall and they wouldn't break and the battery

  • lasted longer than any human could stay awake.

  • That said, the third phone on the list is the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and it beats

  • any Android phone by a long way.

  • 220 million people bought that phone, which is more than impressive.

  • The best selling Android phone of all time is the Samsung Galaxy S4, and that sold just

  • 80 million units, a long way behind.

  • It ran Android 4.2.2 "Jelly Bean".

  • But then just below that you have the iPhone 5 and iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus which sold

  • 70 and 65.9 million units respectively.

  • The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S aren't too far behind that, while various versions of the

  • Samsung Galaxy have done ok too.

  • If you look at the historical market share of operating systems you'll find in 2009

  • Android was barely getting out of the blocks and iOS was in front.

  • The operating system called Symbian, used by a bunch of big manufacturers like Nokia,

  • was ahead of them both, but that soon changed.

  • What you see in the years ahead is Microsoft Mobile taking a huge nosedive and Android

  • rocketing to the top.

  • We will say, though, that over the years iOS has taken some small dips and rises but mostly

  • it's stayed quite stable.

  • Only lately has the iPhone been in a bit of trouble.

  • That might say something about its dedicated users over the years.

  • But since about 2013 Android has enjoyed an 80 percent market share, give or take a little

  • now and again.

  • No one can deny that Apple has very devoted fans, but it's impossible to contest that

  • Android is king of the market.

  • However, just because something sells more doesn't mean it is better.

  • As we know, the iPhone is very expensive which we're sure puts a lot of people off.

  • We went to an article by Fast Company and along with staff at the website some designers

  • and technology big thinkers talked about what phone they thought was the best of all time.

  • The article was released in 2018.

  • And you know what, the list of phones selected was mostly populated by various versions of

  • the iPhone.

  • Some old school phones such as the early Blackberry got a mention, as did those poplar Motorola

  • flip phones and old Nokias.

  • We couldn't even find an Android phone on the list.

  • Maybe those guys were just fond of the good old days... or maybe there just hasn't been

  • an almost-perfect Android phone yet.

  • What about 2019?

  • We looked to see what people were saying were the best phones you could buy in 2019.

  • Well, now it seems Samsung phones running Android top the list, although some lists

  • do include the iPhone XS.

  • It doesn't matter where you look, Samsung Galaxy phones top the lists right now, with

  • various types of Galaxy phones filling most of the top spots give or take the odd Huawei

  • phone.

  • Some of the top ten lists right now don't even include the iPhone, which is surprising

  • given similar lists you would have found published a few years ago.

  • From what we can see, according to the experts, Android phones whether Huawei, Samsung, Xiaomi

  • or One Plus, are favored over the iPhone.

  • While the iPhone was almost always at the top of reviews not that long ago, these days

  • people are talking about the fall of the phone.

  • That seems to have begun in 2018.

  • It looks like these days that sleek design is just too expensive for some people and

  • they think you can get a better machine for a cheaper price with an Android phone.

  • This still doesn't tell us which is the best operating system, though.

  • Again, the experts have chimed in, not just about which phone is best but what operating

  • system is best.

  • The first thing most people point to is that Android gives the consumer more variety.

  • That's why it sells better, there are just so many phones out there with all kinds of

  • features and at all prices.

  • But it's more than that.

  • The number of apps available for Android is approximately 3.5 million, while for iOS it's

  • 2.5 million.

  • Wait, though, because while there are more free Android apps and a greater variety, at

  • least one reviewer says Apple has the better quality apps, especially if you play games.

  • Some people also say that Apple is better at weeding out questionable apps than Android

  • and the App Store is better to navigate than the Play Store.

  • Another big deal is maps.

  • We looked at a few comparisons of Apple Maps and Google Maps and not one person said Apple

  • Maps was better.

  • Most reviewers did say that Apple Maps is getting better and better and isn't far

  • behind, but in the end you just have to go with Google.

  • What concerns a lot of people, too, is the battery life of their device.

  • It's a huge thing as no one likes seeing their battery run out on them when they really

  • need that phone working.

  • Again, it's all about variety.

  • The iPhone doesn't have a bad battery at all, but you can find many Android devices

  • out there with a superior battery.

  • The experts the public agree on this one.

  • It's looking like Android wins in most areas, but where Apple looks to be superior is offering

  • updates.

  • When it comes to adding new features, some bug fixes, and also security updates, Apple

  • is ahead.

  • Two other things talked about are how you can customize your phone and how easy it is

  • to use.

  • In terms of customizing, Android just has more options, as you'd expect when there

  • are so many phones.

  • But in terms of sheer simplicity, most people seem to think that Apple wins here.

  • But what if you want to sell your phone and buy a new one?

  • Which system holds its value better?

  • There is only one answer to this and no one disagrees.

  • It's the iPhone.

  • You can still get a fairly decent amount of money for a phone two years old.

  • You might also know people using iPhones even older than that which still work very well.

  • In the end, it seems like most people said that it's all about personal preference

  • and there is no definitive better OS.

  • If you prioritize volume of choice and range of customization then you have to go for Android,

  • but if you value design and ease of use then you can't go wrong with an iPhoneif you

  • can afford it.

  • But no matter if you prefer Android or iOS, there's only one answer when it comes to

  • building your website - Wix.
