The latest technology included in the premium smartphones has got users hooked on such devices. The overall design of the latter has also been spruced up and not to mention the significant changes as far as software platforms are concerned.
Google went through a lot of updates ever since Android Lollipop was popularized and now it has Android Marshmallow out and about. Apple also rolled out a bunch of iOS updates in the past and its ultimate one being iOS 9. This is definitely one match you shouldn’t miss out on:
Design, Battery, Digital Assistants
Android M and iOS 9 are not that different. They come with home screens as well as support app icons, plus they support widgets in their own distinct way. Even if there have been some minor adjustments here and there, from a visual point of view nothing major has happened to Android Marshmallow or iOS 9. It depends what you prefer in terms of customization (which you get more with Android 6.0 M) or clean lines, which is something you’ll get to enjoy if you use iOS 9.
Battery wise, things are not that complicated. The truth of the matter is that your battery life span depends on the type of device you own, regardless if it’s an Android-powered one or an iPhone.
If you go with iOS, you will have the Low Power Mode feature which will come in handy and if you opt for Android Marshmallow, the Doze mode steps in and prolongs the device’s battery life. Regardless of how they allow a user to optimize the settings, they do wonders for the battery.
iOS 9 features Proactive and a tiptop Siri version as far as digital assistants. The former feature will recognize your most called contacts as well as frequently used apps and it will provide you with shortcuts to the apps/contacts.
With Android Marshmallow, you have Google Now on Top, which provides users with accurate details based on the question you ask. Siri, may shiver as Google Now on Top is definitely a top contender.
As far as mobile payments, Android Marshmallow’s old Google Wallet has been revamped and it is now known as Apple Pay. The big plus here is that the latter OS offers support for fingerprint scanners, meaning more gizmos will function with the latter. iOS 9 on the other hand has Touch ID and Apple Wallet app.
All in all, whichever mobile OS you opt for, both of them have pluses and minuses to consider.
