Likelihood to Recommend

Android

Huge collection of supported free apps in Play Store. Supports a wide range of devices. Extremely customizable. Available for mobile and tablet devices, even for desktops and virtual machines.

iOS

iOS works well when you want solid control over institutionally-owned devices. This generally works best when you play by Apple's rules and buy through them and use Apple School/Business Manager - so if you're going for a BYOD model, this probably isn't the way to do [it]. There is a wide variety of management tools, but bear the costs of each in mind.

Cons

Android

  • Lacking in maturity in terms of security handling and ecosystem.
  • Lacking in quality management of apps in Play Store.
  • Lacking in virus protection.
  • Lacking in battery management- several background apps keep running and eating the power.

iOS

  • Replacing the battery is hard and shouldn't be.
  • I know it is for security, but the ability to remote control iOS and help users would be great.
  • Security can be tight with the iCloud and passcodes and you can brick a phone if you are not careful.

In all likelihood, common users will either already have experience with iOS on their iPhones, or will pick it up quickly. The UI is generally simple and mostly visual. Power users, on the other hand, may feel constrained by the inherent limitations built-in. Root access, terminal commands, and deep customization are not really to be found here.

There have been only two times that I have needed to contact Android support for technical issues and both times I received some support. I received more helpful tips from Youtube, so I now bypass support and try to do most of our troubleshooting on my own with these support videos online.

Lots of help articles online for just about everything under the sun. I have never personally had to engage Apple's support team to comment on their helpfulness.

Alternatives Considered

Android

Android allows users to customize their systems. It is very simple to use and there are a lot of devices running it. The interface has been improving a lot since Android Lollipop and it has been becoming more useful.For developers, Android gives more possibilities and the license for distributing your app is cheaper than the Apple Software Developer Program.

iOS

The software updates have a wide coverage for iPhone models and I love updating software for additional features and/or improved software stability. It has also genuine feel of the phones they offer. Easier to set up and use. It helps me do more productive tasks. If I have the latest phone model, I would have additional software advantages that are already included in my OS.
