4 vs 5 yep ! its iOS 5 vs Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 of Android
Well, Previously i compared iPhone 4S with Samsung Galaxy S but now this time iOS 5 and Ice Cream Sandwich of Android are in state of war between each, who will be fighting side by side with iPhone 4S vs Samsung Galaxy S 2. Earlier in the WWDC June 2011, it was announced that iOS 5 will be coming out with more then 200 features introduced and but no big numbers of features are added or attached for the Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0. I do not know the why Apple hits the ground with words more than 200 latest features and simply no real numbers for the release of Ice Cream Sandwich by Android Team has been used.
But for sure, Galaxy S2 and iPhone 4S are in competition and same thing will be move for their software of course. But this particular competition started when Ice Cream would be ported inside Galaxy S2 and performance would be checked and comparing it with iPhone 4S.
So far the few features which everyone look in the cellphone’s software are discussed as under.
Faster Sharing Approach :
Well it is one of the fore front feature in Ice Cream Sandwich, where users will be feel so close to the contacts, in phone book, social networks, friends sharing any thing like, pictures, locations media files etc in nearly just two tab on the screen that’s what they claim and it seem a punching feature and it is powered with Android Beam, but same it goes with the iOS 5, where different apps integration has been in built, which make you able to do the same which Ice Cream Sandwich enable you to do. So on this particular point, Both are same.
Audio / Cellphone Assistant:
Well in iOS 5 Siri has been added, which is super added feature, where user via using voice commands can control and do what ever he want to do with the phone. In fact all the basic functions of Cellphone can be operated, sharing can be and notifications, reminder can be set, media file can be shared with the assistance of Siri App. In Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4, powerful voice assistant has been added but so far the performance does not matches with Siri. but other third party App on same Android works more efficiently even neck to neck with Siri.
Portability across different Gadgets:
iOS 5 still only designed for the smart phones same like J2ME, Symbians but this time as ever Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 is released with the concept that it can be ported and installed inside tablets as well in Smart phone. Here Android leads the market on porting and support has been extended in big time.
Both iOS 5 and Android Ice Cream Sandwich are optimized, which minimize the issues of consuming battery and energy conservation policy within the firmwares are kept on top priority.
Picture, Editing, Quality and Performance:
Well both firmware has been equipped with the latest features added tot he editors, capturing has been improved and the tool which are added in the editors are performing in better way than the past. 1080 HD video capturing added to the iOS 5 and HD screen has been added, which confirms the ability to support HD 1080 on Google Nexus as well.
Unlock / Locking Screen:
In iOS 5 it has been kept simple but different patterns locking and unlocking screen can be installed via App but in Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 Face recognition is introduced along side with Pattern Touch Screen unlocking and Locking. Which makes it different to the iOS 5 and little similar to the Laptops and other Tablets screen locking and unlocking.
And many more. For me right Android and Apple’s IOS is having neck to neck fight where already Galaxy S2 breaking the quarter sales and nearly ricking the record break sale again iPhone 4S. So guys having any of these product makes you feel better because both are having capabilities to perform at high quality and speed. graphic are also better than the previous older smart phone. So if you guys are living in Asia and Asia Pacific, Korea buying Galaxy S2 will the worthy deal but living in US, iPhone 4S can be opted but one has to look out for the price difference and affordability.
