As of May 2019 the market share for phoneoperating systems is really only a two horse race – iOS and Android, with Android controllingjust over 75 percent of the market and iOS with just under 23 percent. Kai OS and some others like Nokia’s OS werenext with a negligible market share. It’s become a matter of fact that in thisworld there are Android fans and iOS fans, and people don’t tend to cross over to theother side. We all know folks who would never give uptheir iPhone for say, a Samsung, and we all know people who tell you iPhones are overpricedand more of an accessory than a necessity.
But which operating system is really the best? That’s what we’ll try and find out foryou. Before we get to the pros and cons of eachsystem let’s first have a look at the history of these two OS’s. We’ll start with Android. The company Android Inc. was founded in 2003by a bunch of guys, but the one you’ve most likely heard of is Andy Rubin. At first the idea was an operating systemdeveloped for digital cameras, not phones, but soon the creators changed their mindsand announced that their technology would soon rival Microsoft Windows Mobile. Not many people believed that and it wasn’teasy getting this company going.
In fact, it’s been reported that they wereso broke they couldn’t afford to pay for their office space and even the founders’closest friends didn’t really believe they were on to something. Google however, did believe in their OS andacquired it from Android Inc. along with key members of the company. There was a lot of secrecy surrounding Androidand its acquisition but the rumors started to get out that Google was developing itsown software for mobile phones, and little did we know how quickly this software wouldbe in most of our pockets. Then in 2007 Apple dropped a bombshell andreleased its iPhone. Prior to this, Google’s operating systemwas developed only to run on standard phones, not ones with touchscreens.
When the iPhone came out the Android teamknew that they had a lot of work to do. That same year a group called the HandsetAlliance came together and made the bold statement that they would create “the first trulyopen and comprehensive platform for mobile devices.” Members of this alliance were Google, Samsung,HTC and Motorola as well as others. They weren’t just full of hot air either,and soon we saw a bunch of different versions of Android. These were “Cupcake”, “Donut”, “Eclair”, and”Froyo”. Later we got “Kit-Kat.” You might be wondering why computer softwarewas named after things that you eat, and Google later answered that saying it was becausethe mobile devices running this software made life sweet. The first Android phone was the T-Mobile G1,or HTC Dream as it was called outside of the USA.
The reviews were mixed, but many people didsay that theOS had lots of potential. Now for the iPhone and iOS. In 2005 the one and only Steve Jobs had ahuge job to do – shrink the Mac and make the perfect handheld device. In 2007, Apple announced this new phone alongwith its operating system. The first of the systems was called iPhoneOS 1, and unlike Google, Apple didn’t go for sweet-sounding names and just kept countingup in numbers. So far we have only mentioned phones, butas you know both operating systems ran on various mobile devices. The first iPhones were praised as a spectaculardevice and only added to the mystique of Jobs who for some was like a techno-god. You just have to read those early reviewsto find fawning praise about how the iPhone was sleek, fantastic, innovative, a superbdevice for surfing the web, like nothing else before it.
Gizmodo wrote, “I’m thumbing through myown iPhone like a teenager with his first Playboy.” It was in a league of its own. It wasn’t perfect and lacked a few features,but hey, no one was saying negative things about this device except perhaps one thing. This was the fact it was so darn expensive,coming in at a base price of $499. Compare that to the first Android phone whichlaunched at $179. But the price didn’t matter to many as iPhoneswere being hailed as the future of mobile devices. That’s kind of been the story ever since,but as we’ve seen in the years since, many high-end Android phones are also now veryexpensive. They might have cost a lot of cash, but thatdidn’t stop people buying the iPhone. If you look at the best selling phones ofall time you’ll see that it’s topped by early Nokia phones. And it makes sense, you could throw them againsta wall and they wouldn’t break and the battery lasted longer than any human could stay awake.
That said, the third phone on the list isthe iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and it beats any Android phone by a long way. 220 million people bought that phone, whichis more than impressive. The best selling Android phone of all timeis the Samsung Galaxy S4, and that sold just 80 million units, a long way behind. It ran Android 4.2.2 “Jelly Bean”. But then just below that you have the iPhone5 and iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus which sold 70 and 65.9 million units respectively. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S aren’t too farbehind that, while various versions of the Samsung Galaxy have done ok too. If you look at the historical market shareof operating systems you’ll find in 2009 Android was barely getting out of the blocksand iOS was in front. The operating system called Symbian, usedby a bunch of big manufacturers like Nokia, was ahead of them both, but that soon changed. What you see in the years ahead is MicrosoftMobile taking a huge nosedive and Android rocketing to the top.
