10 Reasons Why iOS 5 is Still Better than Android 4.0

According to the media abroad reports, both iOS 5 and Android 4.0 come to the world this fall. Steve Kovach of Businessinsider has post a report, and has listed 10 reasons that Android 4.0 can’t still defeat iOS 5 as below:

1. Apple’s App Stores are still the example for Google and Amazon to follow.

Apple’s App Store is the one everyone from Google to Amazon has been striving to imitate. It’s still the best. Up to today, Apple’ App always can select the best App to a well- marked place and make sure you see only the best ones. Developers also tend to take more time to design their iOS apps. Even big-name apps like Facebook, and LinkedIn look and feel more polished than their Android counterparts.

2. Good App prefer to launch on iOS first

Schmidt caused quite a stir this week when he said developers would start making apps .That’s a bold statement, but it can exactly explain that most App prefer to launch iOS, even launch only iOS. So do the developers, they launch iOS first, and then gauge whether they will expand to Android or not. May what Schmidt says could make the trend switch, but Android has no any advantages now at least

3. iOS system touch controls are perfect

iOS has had perfect touch controls since the first iPhone launched in 2007. There’s no jerky lag or sluggishness. In comparison, Android walks with many difficulties, Ice Cream Sandwich improves this problem, but there are still many these or those problems.

4. Easy access to music, movies

Apple always simply provides the best and easiest access to content with the least time. For example, the iTunes store is packed with all the movies, TV shows, and music you could want. With iCloud, you can purchase stuff on one device and download it to another. However, Android is still striving to imitate at this aspect.

5. Solid update schedule for all phones and tablets

If you own an iOS device, you’re guaranteed to always have the latest software update as soon as its available. It doesn’t matter which carrier you’re on or how old your phone or tablet is. But for Android, it has difficulty with software updates, so it will take you months to update your device.

6. Automatic backup with iCloud

iOS 5 provides the function of automatic backup. If you have set your device to automatically back up to iCloud, even your device are crashed, don’t worry, only to login your Apple ID, all the lost data will be back again.

7. Unified e-mail inbox

If you have many email inboxes, it may be trouble to open all the emails inboxes at the same time. iOS’ Mail app lets you view all your incoming messages from all accounts in one unified inbox. Ice CreamSandwichstill doesn’t have this function.

8. Overall design is cleaner

iOS sacrifices customization function to make the interface neat, slick, and clean. All the icons are designed with fingertips, it is convenient and everlasting. Ice CreamSandwichstill doesn’t come close to this level of polish.

9. UI is intuitive

Why we love Apple’s UI consistency in iOS. That’s because Apple’s is really perfect,  no matter what your doing in iOS, browsing the web, writing email, sending massage, everything is easily navigable.

10. You only need one button

Apple gives up the traditional 3 keys design, and successfully proves to all the people that you only need one button to get things done on your phone.
