10 functions iOS 8, which is not enough Android users




Android and iOS – the two leading operating systems in the smartphone market – the device under their control took about 90% of the market in the third quarter of 2014. While Apple is constantly suing the producers due to copy their technology, design and functionality of the aforementioned platforms differ greatly.


The debate about which operating system is comfortable, functional and better in general, do not cease. Authors thematic blog Mobile Review have compiled a list of 10 features iOS 8, ​​which is not enough to be completely happy mobile platform Google.

Create a full backup

As the years passed, out the new version of Android, and such basic functionality as a full backup, still has not appeared. Yes, Google have learned to save passwords from Wi-Fi and a list of your applications, but data recovery in the games (without the support of Play Games), location applications, etc. still do not have, and it’s very frustrating.
Unification resolution displays

Now this applies to most iPad, because the iPhone has also appeared mess with different display resolution. But here the situation is reversed for the iPad – there are two basic display resolution: 1024×768 pixels and 2048×1536 pixels, and all the games and applications are written specifically for them. In Android is a huge number of different resolutions, it gives a fair amount of problems for both developers and users. I think that could be introduced 4-5 standard permits and to oblige manufacturers to produce devices it is with them.
High performance

Yes, now there are two smartphone operating at or even slightly faster than iOS 8 is 5 and Google Nexus HTC One M8. But this is a drop in the ocean on a background of a huge number of different devices. Even after the Project Butter some tablets and smartphones are still retarding the same launcher and standard applications work.
Censorship and standard design applications

Have you ever wondered how many different designs there are applications for Android? Holo, Card Style, Material Design, and I am silent, that 90% of applications and does look like it is not clear what. I believe that Google needs to impose strict criteria for the appearance of the application, and those who do not comply, just removed from the Play Store.
Timely OS updates

Because of the huge number of chipsets, diversity-resolution display, different volumes of operational and internal memory and, of course, their own skins, Google alone can not update all devices to the newest version of Android. And leaving it to manufacturers of smartphones, we got a disregard for this process.
Good native keyboard

On Android, there are many third-party keyboards, some of them are superior to the standard keyboard on iOS functionality and vocabulary, but an integrated solution I do not like, it was a meager vocabulary and ugly appearance. I know many readers who like iOS keyboard Stock much larger than any Android-keyboard.
Normal sync photos

In Android 4.1 is finally a normal synchronization quality contact photos. That’s only one problem left. After the initial synchronization of these photos loaded into the bad quality. To picture was of normal quality, you had to go to the contact card, and wait 3-4 seconds. In iOS is no such problem, and it is a big plus.
Merge menu applications and desktops

I used to be exclusively for sharing desktops and the applications menu, but for a long time popolzovavshis devices Meizu, and then iPhone 5s, realized that still an option with the placement on the desktops of all icons convenient. Especially if the same Google Apps originally been collected in one folder. Would not prevent horizontal mode for the desktop.

In iOS 8 appeared remarkable application Health, is an aggregator for information on all of your fitness program. In Android analogues yet, but with the release of Android L will change if I am not mistaken.

I have not used this feature, but thrilled by the idea. Most of the time I work from home, and I feel so much more convenient to answer an incoming call or SMS from your computer. To tell you the truth, I would love to see this functionality on Android, though, I think there probably will be some manufacturers add it than himself Google.
