Android Ice Cream Sandwich vs iOS 5
Android Ice Cream Sandwich vs iOS 5 – verdict
Google has tried time and time again to beat Apple at its own game, and iOS has remained victorious. But times are a-changing. Both operating systems have a vast number of identical features that make them equally appealing, but it feels like Android just has the edge when it comes to notifications, multitasking and web browsing.
A combination of iOS-inspired-instalments, complimented by its own non-Apple tweaks means Google has rolled out its most aggressive and advanced Android update yet, delivering something completely fresh to the forefront of Android smartphones.
Apple may rule the roost in the app department, but its user experience is starting to feel slightly hackneyed, even with a fresh injection of UI tweaks. With greater customisation options, more control and a complete overhaul Ice Cream Sandwich is, on paper, putting its feet more firmly forward than its iOS counterpart. If Android apps could up their game, too, we feel that even hardened Apple aficionados might find their loyalty wavering.
