iOS :

Smoothness , Easy to use , No need to change anything from stock to run well.

Android :

Jerky , Laggy , Not as easy to use , and stock android does not run nicely.


iOS wins in making a product that works straight off the bat .

Android requires time and effort to get to the same or better standard.


My Desire HD at stock was awful images would actually stutter and jerk between pictures.

For me Android does nothing better than iOS besides the customization area which i don't really care about .

Not really gonna want to start an argument, but you're making some hasty generalizations here.

That's the iPhone's greatest strength, and its most glaring weakness. It does indeed run excellent out of the box due to Apple's extreme optimization of software, including full hardware acceleration (as is with its Mac line). However, it's due to iOS being limited in many ways, including a narrow range of choices and features. Once you jailbreak the device and add more features into it, chances are your iPhone will slow down by a bit - that's due to 3rd-party content not fully optimized for the hardware and the platform stressed well outside its confines.

As is with the iOS argument, Android's open-ended platform does relatively poorly in the smoothness department due to its extended range of capabilities. That's sadly the price we have to pay for the amount of user control over the operating system. Yes, it is jerky at times but it's not as game-breaking as most would seem to think. The higher-end Android models like the LG G2x and Samsung Galaxy S II feel incredibly smooth to navigate - despite the platform's lack of full hardware acceleration. Google is promising that feature in 2.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, which should give most phones an incredible speed boost.

I experienced the Desire HD which is a decent handset and by no means does android at stock function better than iOS does.

Its quite obvious that the only benefit of going to the android platform is for customization . If you don't fit this category then a Iphone is a better option.

As at this current time STOCK iOS is a smoother and better functioning OS than STOCK Android is.

^ By the way, isn't the Desire HD an HTC Sense device? If so, then it not really is stock by definition. HTC still added Sense as its UI overlay which could hamper performance. A pure Android experience could be found in the Nexus line; try a Nexus One or Nexus S and see how they perform without any kind of bloatware or manufacturer UI onboard.

Stock for stock, iOS wins no doubt. But of course Android offers people an opportunity to tinker with it well beyond that - that is its clear advantage. Whether users will like this choice or not, it's up to them.

EDIT: BTW we haven't even talked about multitasking and other minute features of both platforms. Different ball game. :3

Yea it does have Sense . Which again just adds more bloatware.

Ill try out a Nexus S if i can get my hands on one.

I agree as well. The main reason I considered another phone was because I was just bored with what any iPhone had to offer.


And if this continues to be another "vs" thread, go ahead and close it. So sad. Life guess I could have titled it differently, not that it would have stopped the inevitable apple/android battle... I just really wanted to show and talk.about my new phone. And being that it was a new phone to the market, thought it might interest others. If the thread doesn't get closed first, I will be uploading pics comparing the camera on the infuse and my digicam.
