Android vs iPhone

Android VS iPhone! Here is the list of differences between an android phone and iPhone. The top nine differences between Android and iPhone are -

1) Browsing
Browsing with Android phone is much faster and easier. Android supports flash website which is not in iPhone. You can see all flash based websites and you can also play Facebook games such as Facebook City-City Farm Town.

2) Connectivity
On Android, you have 4 buttons -
Enable/disable Bluetooth
Enable/disable WiFi
Enable/disable Mobile Network
Enable/disable GPS
A press and you're done! There is also an application on the Android Market called Y5, which
disables the wireless network automatically when no known wireless network is detected. Now with iPhone, you must go through various options to control connections.

3)PC Connection
iTunes is compulsory to connect your iPhone to a PC. But with Android, you have to just drag and drop.

4) Multi - notification
In iPhone, to receive a notification of a specific program such as Facebook, Facebook application must be open.
But in Android, you will receive all updates in the notification bar for all your social activities in one place whether it is an e-mail, a tweet, a facebook update, an SMS or a missed call.

5) Personalization
Using the iPhone, you should stick with Apple prefixed look settings. But in Android, you can customize your phone look as per your choice.
If you are a social networking lover, then you can have a screen for Facebook, one for Twitter, and one for Flickr. If you're a business person, then you can have a screen for contacts, one for calendar, one for mail, one for for RSS feeds, and more.

6) Application Market
For the iPhone there is the Apple Store and so for Android. The Android Market is one of the hottest markets. You can find applications for anything and it is very easy to install them as well. There are billions of free applications for you.

7) Google compatibility 
You will be surprised to see how Android and Google are so user friendly and easy to communicate with all its services.

8) Open Source
There are thousands of  developers working on Android's software and upgrades, tweaking performance. So if a bug is detected, it is fixed quickly. iPhone Open source? Don't ask!!

9) Android allows you to choose your hardware
This is the best option available with Android. Apple says "think different", but when it comes to hardware you do not have much choice. It's either black or white, 16 GB or 64 GB, so you're stuck with 3.5-inch, 320 × 480 pixels display, 256 MB RAM and a 600MHz processor. But in case of  Android, they adapt to any hardware configuration whether it is Nexus One (with 3.7-inch 480×800 pixel display, 512 MB of RAM and 1GHz Snapdragon processor) or the Motorola Droid that has a physical keyboard.
