The two top players in the smartphone wars are going head-to-head for the hearts and minds of consumers with the newest versions of Android and iOS – Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and iOS 5.1.
It's a matter of opinion, some people prefer ICS and some iOS.
dont care. i use custom roms for both.
'iOS 5.1 is the better mobile device operating system...in my opinion' Fixed.
Rubbish article - I wish whoever wrote it would get their facts right about how Siri and iCloud works.
the author picked a winner before even writing this article.
"Both Ice Cream Sandwich and iOS 5.1 are able to store the contents in your device to the Cloud. Google have been doing this for quite some time. Apple, on the other hand, is playing catch up with iCloud"
"Apple iOS 5.1 is late to the party when it comes to face detection. Already Google is way beyond what Apple has introduced to the new OS"
"The Android browser, which recently surpassed Opera Mini and Opera Mobile to become the number one mobile browser in the world, now has more features than you can throw a stick at"
Ease of use is purely debatable and is 90% personal preference.
siri is the only thing its good at doing and even then its not by leaps and bounds.
so basically Apple is behind in 3 out of 5 comparisons and according to this user it still comes out on top. yeah sure....
Don't think there is a huge difference between the two either way. Only thing I noticed is that most Android phones require a bit more setting up to fit your comforts than an iOS phone but it isn't a big deal.
it is a bit more setting up but i found that that is what makes it more customizable.
I have NO idea why people say Android is so complicated...I assume they must refer to retarded people then.
Android is just as simple as iPhone in my opinion, but you know some people. They just read comments from one source and rehash it as their own story.
people are saying more things to set up on android because the android has more options, think about it some androids even come with hdmi ports. IMO ios is really nice specialy with siri but the android is more customizable in alot of ways, and the app store is catching up.
Siri is a nice feature however it's a work in progress to the point it does not even work properly outside of the Untied States, moreover the more polished Google Voice works more accurately than Siri. Now Siri is more "flashy" in certain ways in its responses but I find this ironic as the Apple slogan is: "It just works" Siri does not in most cases. It's still beta. Voice has been out far longer and is more polished. http://www.ijailbreak.com/n...
better for what and for who is the question.

Android can run and work in devices that costs less than $459. Does it count? Android for me.
