Android VS. Apple what device should you purchase

Android VS. Apple

It has always be a epic dual

 

Why Android is more advanced then IOS but less stable. First you need to understand that I carrier and use both a iPhone and Android device everyday. Currently I have a IPhone 7 and a One Plus 5 both are high end devices. The Android OS is more advanced for many reasons but the two that come to mind are better specs (physical hardware) and development.

Android OS is Open source which means that anyone can develop and work on the operating system. This leads to advances and new features all the time. What I have seen happen over the years is that the Android community developers come up with new software features in custom roms. Once the community shows that they want them then Google comes in and adds those features to stock Android. Really Google is genius in this manner getting great free development from the community. Apple IOS is ok but being locked down like it is means that you are waiting on the Apple company to come up with new ideas instead of the whole world. The benefit of Apple keeping it’s OS closed source is that they can control and keep it clean. This is again great for stability and uniformity.

Original equipment manufacturers like Samsung, LG, HTC, Motorola and many others use the latest hardware for there new device. Quad HD screens, 8GB of Ram, fast processors, and wireless charging make these devices amazing and for many people even better then there home PC. Apples hardware generally lags behind Android by 2 years. This sounds like a bad thing but really its not. Because by the time that Apple has this hardware in there devices all the software and hardware bugs have been killed leaving a rock solid experience for there users.

Last is security, while Android is open source which is great for developing on it this also opens up the source code to be looked at by everyone and that means bugs can be found and exploited much easier then on Apple. I am not saying that Apple IOS is 100% secure, I am just saying that it is harder to HACK.

This is the way I think about it and this can really help when others ask me about what device they should purchase.

Android = Advancements, Affordable, and Customization

Apple IOS = Stability, Security, and Consistency


Android will always be my choice of preferred device for these couple reasons.

Android Factory Reset Protection

Android Factory Reset Protection

What are the pros and cons of Android factory reset protection? This is a new feature that is included with Android version 5.1.1. First, I have to state that any security measures that can be added to your android device will only improve the safety of your personal data. That being said, you as the owner of the device, should also have the option and control to turn these features on and off as you choose. For example, unlocked bootloaders, carrier unlock, factory reset protection, and Write Protect to name just a few.

Pros

1. Device will not even boot to lock screen without the correct password. Kernel level password check.

2. Using Android device manager, you can remotely locate and/or wipe the data on your device.

3. If your device is lost, stolen, or wiped, only someone with your Google account or screen lock information can use the device.

 

Cons

1. Device protection is automatically turned on when you add a Google account and setup a lock screen password. I list this as a con because it is automatic.

2. If you have Factory Reset Protection turned on and you mess something up, it will not boot or you forgot your password, then you will also not be able to reset it in stock recovery. The only way to fix this is to use a tool like odin, rsd lite, fastboot, or lg flash tool to restore the factory firmware.

3. If you can’t provide your Google account information during the setup process, you won’t be able to use the device at all after factory reset.

 

Sprint put together a great little walk through explaining how to turn on and off Factory Reset Protection. HERE IS THE LINK

Another great read on this subject from Google  HERE

Important: If you reset your Google account password and need to do a factory reset, you need to wait 72 hours after changing your password to reset your device. This is for security purposes.
