It’s hard to choose between Android Nougat and iOS 10 because both operating systems have their perks. Sure, iOS 10 is presumed to be somewhat more advanced, but Android Nougat is closing in with very interesting features.

The Android 7.0 Nougat has already been launched as Google announced last month that Nexus devices will start receiving it, whereas the iOS 10 is scheduled for release in a few days. However, several users have gotten around to testing both of the OSs and here is a comparison between the two.

AI Assistants

Both iOS 10 and Android Nougat are offering AI assistants. The former offers Siri and the latter comes with Google Now.

Siri has opened up to many third party app developers and will now enable users to ask more questions on various topics. Google Now also has improved functionality and can now make reply recommendations or pull out photos.

User Interface

Supposedly, the upcoming iOS 10 will come with a new ‘wake’ feature, widget support and enhanced 3D Touch architecture. The ‘wake’ feature is designed to solve a Touch problem encountered on iOS 9 and it similar to the ‘Always on’ feature on Android.

The widget support is a brand new feature for iOS and the notification drawer will come with an option to swipe right and to view an extension with widget information.

On the other hand, Android Nougat offers users the option to run two apps at the same time in landscape and to drag and drop items between those apps.

Messaging Features

Apple’s iOS 10 will come with more social features implemented into iMessage, whereas Google’s Android Nougat will come with a better messaging function called Allo and Duo – a video messaging service.

As you can see, while iOS is somewhat more advanced than Android Nougat, there are some features that are specific to the latter, that make it a great choice as far as OSs are concerned.
