If you fire up a Galaxy Note 8 alongside an iPhone X, you may believe there is not much difference between iOS and Android anymore. The apps are similar as are the grids and the approach to settings and notifications is also alike. At this stage, you are probably happy with the OS you have chosen and want to stick to it. But, is there a need to reconsider?
Over the years, iPhone and Android have borrowed enough features from each other that the superficial differences don’t seem like much nowadays. However, if you do some digging, you will realize that there are three aspects where the iPhone is still superior than Android. What are these aspects? They are outlined below:


In the last few years, Apple has been very keen to discuss the privacy advantages that the iPhone has to offer. More of your data is stored on your smartphone, less is stored on the cloud and Apple is not very interested in collecting a lot of data in the first place. A lot of data that Apple does receive such as map locations and search queries is segregated and anonymized. This is called Differential Privacy in which the data gets scrambled so people cannot be personally identified by Apple.
In contrast, Google tries to collect as much personal information as possible in order to provide personal and customized services. In addition, Android phone makers like Samsung and LG have their own data collection policies. Not everyone is comfortable with having their information collected and used so you may want to think twice before you sell iPhone 6 plus or any other iPhone.


One of the most notable things about the iPhone is that its popularity and ubiquity has prompted other manufacturers to offer support for them. This means that iPhone users have a wider choice of compatible devices. If you are looking for a smartwatch, you can choose between an Android wear device or an Apple Watch. You can send audio to an Amazon Echo or HomePod or beam content to a Chromecast or Apple TV. But, if you go for an Android device, you will not have access to Apple services and Apple-made devices.


Last, but not the least, you should reconsider your decision to sell iPhone 8 online because the security outlook between iPhone and Android are stacked in the former’s favor. More malware targets Android devices and it gets through quite frequently. Plus, the security updates don’t roll out as quickly on Android devices. While iPhones are not exactly invulnerable to malware, but they are locked down more tightly, which means that you don’t have to worry about security that much. Yes, this means that apps might be a bit restricted on the iPhone, but your phone stays safe from malicious apps.

Google’s OS is targeted more often because there are fewer hoops they have to jump through and more devices running on outdated software as compared to the iPhone and this means greater vulnerabilities.
