Fan of Android called 10 functions that are missing in iOS 8




Due to the cost and availability of solutions for manufacturers of Android operating system in a few years has become the market leader in mobile devices. However, many users prefer the premium segment devices on the platform iOS – iPhone and the iPad.


Disputes about what mobile system better not cease. Proponents of Apple boast quick response and smooth scrolling, and Android fans meet endless possibilities the gadget settings. Authors thematic blog Mobile Review have compiled a list of 10 features Android, which is lacking in the mobile “OSes” from Apple.


1 Complete access to the file system. Even though I have a positive attitude to iTunes on OS X, I still think that the user should have a choice: to use proprietary software to synchronize with a PC, or just plug it in USB-drive mode. Apple has not only limit user iTunes, but do not let it use the same multimedia files from one application to another (I mean drenched videos in mkv, for example).

2 Convenient scaling in Safari. Safari has many advantages, but one major drawback I can not forgive him: he does not adjusts the text to fit the screen when it is increasing. There is only a compromise in the form of “reading mode” but it is not always convenient and not always correct format articles with pictures.

3 Enhanced by “rassharivaniya” content. 8 In iOS the ability to use third-party applications to share the same photos, links to articles or documents, but this possibility should enhance the developers themselves, who are in no hurry to do so. On Android, this same functionality is present by default.

4 Replacement of the main programs on their counterparts from third-party developers. Though iOS gradually move to it until we see only the emergence of third-party browsers and keyboards. And browsers are not going smoothly, because the main remains Safari, no matter what. Also, some readers will note that the keyboard until the work is unstable, run longer and have a number of different bugs.

5 More functional application for calls. Over the years, with Android I am very used to exDialer supporting SmartDial, and the Stock Dialer from Android 4.4 is very functional. Gestures, fast search, large photos of the contacts in your address book – all this periodically so lacking on iOS 8.

6 Themes. Exit iOS 7 was perceived by the public in different ways. Someone new fresh design liked someone left untouched, but someone did and dreamed of returning to the style of iOS 6. In my opinion, all of this could be avoided if a new OSes themes emerged. Could make 3-4 threads runoff and require developers to draw icons for them, I think that would be enough for some users.

7 customizable desktop. Resizable grid widgets on the desktop, manual placement of icons, where necessary (but not compulsory rebuilding). All of this is sometimes sorely lacking on the desktops of iPhone and iPad.

8 Full background. At Dropbox has a lovely feature called Camera Uploads, it allows you to automatically upload all your photos into a separate folder in the cloud. On Android simply connect the device to be charged and have a stable Wi-Fi, to start uploading photos. Same on iOS, you must first run the application and keep it open to photographers began to disembark. Or take the same WhatsApp. To send a message to the application must establish a connection and keep it installed all the time, otherwise you will not be able to send, it is also associated with the peculiarities of iOS.

9 replacement batteries, memory cards, support for two SIM-cards. This, of course, a controversial point, but I often see people who are upset because of the fact that one of these items do not have an iPhone.

10 Reduced price. Yet, one of the main disadvantages, according to many readers, it is a high price. The entrance ticket to the world of iOS is quite expensive (when it comes to iPhone), and it deters many from buying a smartphone.
