Android VS Apple smartphones
The benefits of having a phone with open platforms may seem greater than that of closed platforms, though when you look at the bigger picture in relation to smartphones, I believe closed platforms come out on top! Android consists of an open platform, allowing buyers of the product to be in control of the content they put onto their phone (e.g. apps). The manufacturer of this product has little control over the content of individual phones and the access the users have to certain sites, meaning the user is free to roam as they wish.
But I believe Apple comes out on top.
You may be thinking, “Is she serious?? She lists all these good qualities about Android and then acknowledges Apple as superior??” And yes, you’re absolutely right! The thing is, the lack of this open platform with an iPhone does not actively affect me. I do everything I want with my Apple iPhone, and am perfectly happy with how it works for me, despite not being able to play Club Penguin on Safari back in the day ((((that is until they released an app for it)))).
Another bonus; iPhones are much less likely to develop viruses thanks to the manufacturers creating them to be a closed platform.
