In recent years the mythical race between Android and IOS has turned it head in a turn of events. More like the turtle and Rabbit race where the rabbit always wins, here being portrayed by IOS was dumbstruck when it was surpassed by an accelerating Android power packed with some new upgrades in recent years.
Android has more apps
The Google Play Store is where most Android apps can be found. The App Store is the app marketplace for Apple (iOS) devices. There are more apps available in the Google Play Store than in the App Store. At the moment there are a little over 2 million available for the App Store, whereas the Google Play Store has 2.5 million.
Android is more customizable
While some people are quite content with the homogeneity offered by iOS, those of us who like to see a phone as an extension of ourselves want to tweak it. You can even completely replace the software on some Android devices.
Android devices let you change just about every aspect of their on-screen appearance – from the keyboard to the home screen launcher, to your email app. If you get Cyanogen Mod, you can pretty much strip away any unnecessary features that come pre-loaded on your phone.

There's an Android phone for everyone
Need a rugged phone that you can take mountain-biking or rock-climbing? Galaxy S8+. Want a high-end phone that performs well? Nab yourself a OnePlus 5T. Great camera? Google Pixel 2. Android is brimming with a choice – and we love it. As of last year, there were over 24,000 devices from 1,300 brands.
There is a wider array of price ranges
Let's face it, sometimes we feel like spending a ton of money on our smartphones and other times we don't. If you're upgrading to the next generation of iOS devices, then you've got just a couple of different choices – and all of them are expensive.
There's an Android phone out there for every price range. You can pick up a $20 Alcatel Pixi Glitz or jump into an $800 (starting price) Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The choice is yours but the point is that there is a choice. Apple won't release a phone under $500, so you're quite limited.
You don't have to use iTunes
Apple is a pioneer of hardware and software design, but iTunes – which is required to transfer music between your iPhone and computer – is a bloated mess. Uninstalling it is a nightmare too, to the extent that Apple published an extensive guide for how to fully remove iTunes from your PC.
Android users don't need iTunes and are given many more choices for music services and purchases in general. More and more services are expanding to Android and not just for music but movies, TV shows, games and many more. Heck, you can even get iTunes on Android if you want to.
You're integrated with Google
Android is an open source project called AOSP (Android Open Source Project) that is led by Google but not owned by it. Google uses this to make its version of Android, which is then used by the other manufacturers. That said, Google services are an integral part of Android and are a good reason to pick up one of these devices.
Google services are great and people are flocking to their convenience. How could we live without Google Maps, Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Music or Google Chrome? When integrated, these services make our lives so much easier and Apple just isn't keeping pace.
Aren't Google services great?
Android keeps up with technology
Apple moves slowly, while Android races ahead at full speed. Individual technological innovations of Android devices are way ahead of Apple. Usually, Apple follows Android. For instance, the Huawei P9 was released with a dual rear camera system earlier this year and now the iPhone 7 Plus has it.
If there's a new innovation you're interested in then you should go with Android. Manufacturers of Android devices give you plenty of fresh choices for new technology. If you want last year's innovations jumbled into one device, then Apple is the best bet. Remember, many new features Apple touts are already on Android devices. The iPhone 7 is now water resistant, but Android did it first two years ago, and the Galaxy S7 still has a higher IP68 certification than the IP67 certification of the iPhone 7. Android started using haptic feedback two years ago as well. Apple marketing is clever. For instance, many people believe that Apple invented the smartphone.
The Huawei P9 had the dual-camera system before the iPhone 7.
Android has microSD card support
If you want more internal storage on Apple devices, then you need to either erase your stuff or buy another phone. Apple devices don't give you the option to expand with a microSD card. But many Android smartphones come equipped with microSD card access.
All in all, both Android phones and iPhones have their advantages and disadvantages. I could write an article about some iPhone advantages over an Android phone as well, but the Android advantages way overpower the advantages that you get with an iPhone in my opinion. If you enjoy the advantages listed in this article such as having an abundance of phone choices, customization, better hardware, and expandable memory just to name a few, go with an Android phone.
