Show Notes

Introduction to "iOS vs Android"

In this episode of the Lifestyle, Travel & Technology podcast, the hosts Alexander, Garry & Nikki go over the battle between the two titans of mobile operating systems - Google's Android and Apple's iOS. First, the hosts mention what phones they preferred using over the years with the accompanying operating system that comes with the phone. Alexander then goes through some statistics regarding the performance of each operating system and their respective features they offer to consumers.

At first glance, it is clear that Apple products and its OS are - on the spectrum of low-end to high-end products - rather leaning towards the high-end side, whereas Android based products have a wider range, offering anything from budget-friendly to expensive premium products.
