      This is so typical. Apple fans never need the options Android devices offer. But, a few years later, when Apple copies it and calls it “revolutionary”, the iSheep drool all over it.

    • Tom-Helge Andersen

      No one is forcing you to use all of that. If you don’t want to use many of the things, then don’t use it as it wont be in your way.

      And it’s better to have alot of features in a phone as you most likely will have it for either 1 or 2 years. Alot can happen in that timeframe on what you actually might use.

      And it’s also a fact that you say you don’t need those things because you haven’t used it before. The second you start to use it and sees the benefits of it, it will be the second you can’t live without it.

      • cajhne

        Or 5 or 6 years. I still have all my Android phones from the beginning, and they all still work. I loaned my HTC Hero to a friend last week as a temp phone to use while he ordered a Samsung S4, and now that I have it back, it will resume duties as a network nannycam for the dogs in the other room. Still works perfectly after all this time. Compare that to my little brother’s iPhone, that just died after less than 3 years, or My sister’s iPhone 2nd gen that will not even work since the upgrades. She uses a Galaxy S2 now. It is fun watching iPad and iPhone users accidentally swipe up the new settings bar from the bottom while scrolling down a web page, get upset, and not be able to do a damn thing about it. There’s a reason why Android doesn’t do that out of the box. :P

  • Sergio

    D*mn I’m like I want to print the whole article and give it to every single person I know that has a smartphone, such a great compilation of things, this is tremendous!!! Keep going like that guys , the DROID effect is the sh*t

    • Raymond

      You shouldnt really as a large portion is incorrect. Ios has google now with cards, gestures and a bandwidth monitor for example. It has built in VPN functionality also and it allows for multiple gmail accounts. Those are just a few of the errors.

      • Sergio

        Well this commet is from 3 months ago, we all know that Google is making a huge effort to ‘invade’ iOS with its own apps, so it’s normal that they improve their own apps little by little, still you’d agree with me there’s still a bunch of true facts on that list

        • Raymond

          There are a few that are correct but so many that are not it would cease to be credible outside of the android blogosphere. I use both oses ( moto x and ipad ) and both have strong points but to distribute erroneous info like this makes the android community look duplicitous at best and ignorant at worst.

          • Sergio

            Could you please tell me which are the incorrect ones? , a friend of mine just got a 5s and I would like to check them personally

      Armando has these phones gifted to him for videos so he has iDevices and Android but clearly prefers Android as it is more open for users to do what they wish with it without requiring jailbreak. Apple makes things beneficial only for then while Google and Android OEMs make things beneficial for the betterment of Smartphone technology as a whole and because Android is Open Source, more phones will be apart of that, benefitting. I mean, I don’t see an Apple Maps app on Google Play, but I See tons off Google Apps and some are the top downloads on the App store right now.

      • AppleGeek

        This is b/c Google doesn’t money off the phone. Android is licensed for Free! Google makes their money off their users’ personal information. If you are an Android user, you are the product. Apple & Microsoft make money off the phone.

  • dimnex

    Armando have you considered making a Vs Windows phone? Like showcasing a Windows phone and what it can and can’t do?
    If you search on youtube for comparisons all you see is people scratching the surface with things like ‘this is how the lockscreen
    looks on WP” and “this is how it looks on Android or ios” etc. They don’t dive in to the OS and talk about everyday usage for example.
    Like how’s the sharing with WP etc etc, to show the limitations. This is why your original vs ios videos are so popular I think. No tech site ever
    takes the time to break down the OSes and really show you what they can and can’t do and how do they compare to the other.
    So I’d love to see one vs Windows, even if it doesn’t seem like a threat . Kill this platform in it’s infancy and save some souls from buying in
    a worse platform. Because who is gonna break it down to them? The employ in a store? bah

    • koffiezet

      Maybe because Windows Phone 8 is actually a pretty solid OS, which takes application integration to an entire new level, the entire OS is built on the “contracts” concept. The major downside of Windows Phone is the lack of applications actually using the possibilities of the OS – which makes it very hard to compare any phone OS to it, since all “big” apps for WinPhone are pretty straight-forward ports of the Android/iOS versions without considering the OS-specific features.

      • Guest

        yes it;s solid, but i cant stand using it, however windows phones are great for people who dont have big expectations.

    • Lance Lee

      I have lost al hope for iOS after 7. It not a smartphone OS. It is only as smart as the new Asha platform, only with more apps. Unless they decrease the price to $300, I won’t buy. I am still looking out for WP though. I see a lotof potential in it. if it finally gets a lot of apps, I’ll give it a try or if I can dualboot on an Android. I also think that it is the best looking OS without customizing. It also has thebest camera phones. On the sibject of Asha though, it seems like a great OS for the low end market. It just needs a lot more apps.

      • Jakub Vantroba

        Poor WP has like no Google-Apps :/
        WP is actually good but I still prefer Android over it.

    On your complete list numbers that are wrong:

    4, 9, 39, 49, 60 (itunes (dot) apple (dot) com/us/app/id575923525?mt=8), 62 is an opinion, 63, 64 is vague, 70, 100 (when you couple iOS to iOS devices)

    • robin

      The fact that there’s a Google Wallet app available for iOS doesn’t mean you can pay using NFC. You kinda also need NFC for that…

      • Rob Delaney

        His doesn’t say Google Wallet with NFC does it. Also Google is changing wallet to be a PayPal competitor since there are quite a few people with Google email addresses. But if you were a real technology enthusiast who kept up with more than just one or two operating systems, you might know that

  • EeZeEpEe

    Didn’t even realize iOS doesn’t have a “No Lock” feature. I use my NFC sticker in my car to change my profile to a car mode that includes “No Lock”. I think that was 3 things I did in one sentence that iOS can’t do right? lol

    • Roca

      I’m sorry to say, but, with iOS, we just have to enter inside the car, and place the phone over there, and everything is done automatically after one time initial setup

      • EeZeEpEe

        Sorry but that’s not the same as what I mentioned in my previous comment. My NFC profile turns on Bluetooth, opens my car app, pumps up volumes if they were decreased or off, turns off the lock screen, and turns off data syncing (My personal preference) all with a tap. You’re only talking about connecting via Bluetooth.

      Google Now for iOS is a shadow of what it is on Android. It does not have 360 panorama built into the camera app, “does not need to transfer apps to SD” why?, Cerberus is superior to what iOS offers, profiles does not work like it’s supposed to like on Android where you can change them at the press of a button, best way to unlock the screen is the one the user decides not Apple, you can not download files and browse them in iOS, you have no file explorer, “doesn’t need a back button” said no newly converted Android user ever, streaming is not the same as using external storage, does not have better dev support than Android, was that a joke?

          • RecalcitrantOne

            What Superuser are you downloading from the Play Store that doesn’t already require root access?

    + Turn you phone into a pc by connecting it to a HDMI display and a wireless keyboard/mouse
    + Read videos as they are without converting them along with the srt files and the galley will read them whenever you put them in the device or the ext sd card.
    + you don’t have to use your pc to sync ringtones, just copy/download them and use them immediately.
    + auto-backup your photos/videos to your google+ and ability to share them immediately from there.
    + if you are on Samsung then you will get free 50GB storage on Dropbox for 2 years!

    + In some countries the contact numbers must be written in international and local numbers to be able to see the contact names, not in Android.
    + integrate your contacts with the social networks apps you have.
    + can clear one notification instead of all of them.
    + delivery reports for sms

            Yes, That’s true. But for this point, the title is false. Then this is Not somthing iOS can’t do. It’s somthing Google forget to implementate. It’s like I would say “I can’t use Siri on my Nexus.

          • Priyank

            I don’t think Android users want Siri as Google Now is more use full and more informative then siri and being an Indian best part for me is Google Now understand our accent which unapologetically Siri can’t.

      Do 64bit processing, keep your info from Google, give you in-store support on all models, not have your phone obsolete in 3 months, tablet optimized apps…

      • http://people.ign.com/mrfrodo24 MrFrodo24

        64 bit processing – Useless without 4+ GB of RAM
        Keep your info from Google – Who cares? They aren’t the only ones keeping information. Carriers, manufacturers, and other search engines all store and even sell your information.
        In-store support on all models – That’s neither here nor there. Samsung is working on this, but it’s not a necessity, nor does it have anything to do with the OS itself.
        Not have your phone obsolete in 3 months – How is that a bad thing? That’s called choices. Enjoy the choice between 5S and 5C…
        Tablet optimized apps – You’re joking, right?

        For the record, I have owned a Macbook Pro for 2 1/2 years now. I love it, and I think OS X is a fantastic desktop OS. However, Apple’s iOS is crippled, and has been for 2-3 years now.

        • Roca

          aaaaand FYI: Useless without 4+ GB RAM??? You know the architecture of a system? It doesnt matter… however 3+ GB ram, needs 64-bit :P

          • http://people.ign.com/mrfrodo24 MrFrodo24

            It does matter. With 32 bit addressing, that gives you 2^32 bytes, or essentially 4 GB of addressable memory. A 64 bit system is redundant unless there is more than 4 GB of RAM available to be addressed. That is how it works.

          • Roca

            Thats only for the memory, and there is with the processing power too! 64-bit are capable of performing faster calculations on large nos!

          • http://people.ign.com/mrfrodo24 MrFrodo24

            Actually, having 64 bits when you don’t have the hardware to support it can hurt processing speed.

            The bottom line is that 64 bit chips are completely unnecessary for phones at this point in time.

          • Roca

            what you said is not correct.

            and In that case, it would be useless for quad-core/octa-core processors…

          • Vardan Nazaretyan

            I do, at least. Besides, you can get a Nexus phone off-contract with the same price as an iPhone on contract.
            Yet, you get a better screen, OS, SoC, battery, NFC, no-bloatware+Apple crapware + Nexus devices get updated FASTER than iPhones. Android 4.3 was announced, the updates started rolling out the next day. iOS7 announced at WWDC, 2 months afterwards people start getting updates and you get all this 100+ things that you don’t get with an iPhone.
            And who like to pay 700$ for a bitten Apple logo? I don’t, and most of the people visiting this awesome blog don’t.

          • Priyank

          • Vardan Nazaretyan

            A happy user of an HTC Desire S here. It’s does lag sometimes but it’s certainly better than the iPhone 5S, and it’s already 2.5 years old! My sister owns a N4 and is very happy with it(her first smartphone BTW). If my phone dies someday, it’ll be hard to choose between an HTC phone of that time and a Nexus of that time. But I can’t go wrong with either one.

          • AAG_1

            It lags because you have a virus. You must install an Anti-Virus. I recommend AVG or Dr. Web (I use AVG). If you already installed it do a full scan, It might take a while but if it says there’s no viruses that means you have many apps or files in your device. If it not because that, That means you have purchased your device from a not good store. I have purchased 5 devices from a store and they all are cool devices like GALAXY S4 and GALAXY Note and Motorola XOOM and 2 iPhone 5S and they all always freeze (lag) (Freeze doesn’t mean it starts getting colder, It means it lags) and crashes. (the device stops working and turns off)

          • AAG_1

            Only buy a device from a trusted store.

          • Vardan Nazaretyan

            Man listen, if I were to buy a device from a not trusted store then I wouldn’t be sitting here and replying to your comment. It’s that simple.

          • Vardan Nazaretyan

            You gonna be kidding me right? It lagged because it was freaking 2.5 years old with the same tech. Nothing to do with stores or viruses. And I know what freezing means when it comes to OSes.

          • AAG_1

            No, Seriously.

          • Raymond

            So 200 ( on contract iphone 5s price ) is more than than 350 ( off contract price for nexus) ? Oh about the updates… 4.3 was in development and anounced moths proir to release, they just didnt have a press conference. Ios is released on the same day for all supported devices.

          • Vardan Nazaretyan

            I was comparing off-contactpierced. Not everyone buys a phone on a contract here overseas. And nope, they announced 4.3, Nexus devicesgot update the next day.

          • Raymond

            No you were not comparing the two . you said ” you can get a Nexus phone off-contract with the same price as an iPhone on contract. ” That was erroneous. You have a point with jelly bean but then google messed up that streak with kit kat which has been anounced for quite some time now and is just rolling out as of the past few weeks.

          • Vardan Nazaretyan

            How much does an iPhone 5S cost on contract? (max capacity) Like $349 or $399 (don’t live in the US, thus don’t know the exact price). The same will cost you a 16/32GB Nexus 5 off contract, and it’s still better than the iPhone.

            you can call an ambulance even when the phone is locked. you can scan diffrent fingers on ios. i am not an apple fan, but applegeek says some right things. but in my opinion it doesn’t matter who came with the idea first, it matters how usefull it is. the fingerprint locker is the worst kind of protection, you can collect fingerprints really easy… just think about a keyboard or a “touchscreen” this means: when the person that locked the phone with fingerprint locker, won’t he give away his fingerprint by just touching the phone!

          • Bob Bobby

            for fingerprint id please go see htc one max

  • Dave

    Awesome list. Great site!

    You forgot LiveWallpapers. This is what got me on Android way back.

      Apple “created” the dynamic wallpapers

    Google integrated Google Now into the iOS Google search didn’t they?

    • Brian Shieh

      Yea. I think the Chrome browser can also be set as default on iOS from the app. Google is slowly (in some ways) taking over iOS again

  • Axe

    Awesome job, Armando.

  • Jeremy Decker

    This makes no sense…only certain android phones have removable batteries and expandable storage. Alot of these are redundant as well. If your going to compare android to iOS then its going to have to be one version of android. You cant just fragment everyones features and think thats fair. It should be stock nexus android to iOS that would be fair. And if you did that half the list would go away. So dont get to high on this list.

  • Mazz

    Spot On mate…i am a sworn Android dude myself :D

    101. iOS user’s can’t eat KitKat’s anymore. hahahaha love it!

  • John Chorley

    A good and fairly accurate article :) I love using Android it offers 100 more things than iOS :D …. oh there is one thing an iPhone can do that an Android phone can’t …..crash.

    • Andrew Zoll

      My years as tech support would seem to contradict your comment.
      Android: 95% of calls = “this is broken, fix it.” — 5% of calls = “I don’t know how to do this. Help me do it.”

      iPhone: 5% of calls = “this is broken, fix it.” — 95% of calls = “I don’t know how to do this. Help me do it.”

      Most common issue for Android phones? Crashing and freezing. Why? Poor memory management. Perhaps iPhone users want a phone that just works without having to clear cache and data on apps/wipe cache partition/master reset all the time.

  • Jaka Aria

    what about Samsung Multiwindows. Or TouchWiz SmartClipboard, that allow you copy separate text again and again without afraid current copied text, replace another one. And then select which text you want to paste. Even I don’t know a PC has a feature like this

    With android having an open file system, is the reason why android accounts for 92 percent of all mobile malware

  • Justin Hubbard

    WOW!.

    This is seriously the stupid fucking list I’ve ever seen in my life.

    The iPhone 5s is one phone that runs iOS 7. Your comparing a single phone to the collective whole of hundreds of Android phones, all with unique features that even other Android phones don’t have. Boom Sound?? i guess you shouldnt buy the GS4 since its lacks it…

    Seriously. How come when new Android phones are released, Apple fans just look away because their smug in knowing they love their device But man every time a new iphone is out, the android nerds come out their basements with pitch forks in hand trying to convince themselves that the iphone is bad out of their own insecurity.

    I mean, the fair comparison would be iOS 7 vs Android 4.3 or iphone 5s vs any single Android phone, but you cannot have all “100″ of these features on one single Android phone and no one carries around all these phone for these features.

    plus also, this is full of inaccuracies:

    1. App integration with Operating System….. Uhh Facebook and Twitter are intergrated. Debunked

    4. Google Now (with card notifcations)…. i have google now and I have SIri.. I think iphone wins since we have both.

    6. Widgets…. iOS has widgets via the notification center with weather and stocks, the accurate statement would be 3rd party widgets.

    9. Photosphere (panorama) – without the use of a third party app…. We can do this via 3rd party and why the fuck does 3rd party not count??? Your list is full of features from 3rd party apps

    10. USB host – USB OTG…. umm on iPad if you buy the adapter, you can view both USB pictures and transfer them also works with SD Card.

    Then the list starts getting ridiculous and just stupid nerdy shit that is from 3rd party apps mostly and that most Android phones cant do.

    But this one is funny.

    39. Allow multiple Gmail accounts on one device…… Dude, I can set up multiple Gmail accounts in both the Apple mail app and the official gmail app, which by the way looks far better than on Android.

    And this is all coming from a dude who has owned 16 android phones. I bought the g1 on day, I rooted it. I installed Cyanogen before their was a website and following. I bought ever nexus device ever released and just got fed up with the inconsisten ugly Windows-like mess of Android. the bloatware, the OEM skins, the updates that never come… the feeling that I had to hack my fucking 600$ phone to get it to work right. Alll drove me to iPhone just like Shitty as windows drove me to Mac a few years ago.

    Android has become the Windows of the PC world. thats not a compliment.

    • Tom-Helge Andersen

      You said: 1. App integration with Operating System….. Uhh Facebook and Twitter are intergrated. Debunked

      I say: That’s not the point. The point is that peoples want to share many things via other things than just Facebook and Twitter. What about Google+?

      Oh, you debunked your self.

      You said: 4. Google Now (with card notifcations)…. i have google now and I have SIri.. I think iphone wins since we have both.

      I say: Why have 2 when you can just have one, that is Google Now witch is way better than Siri now?

      You said: 6. Widgets…. iOS has widgets via the notification center with weather and stocks, the accurate statement would be 3rd party widgets.

      I say: You clearly don’t get the point with widgets at all do you?

      Oh, can you remove those widgets in the notification bar on iOS if you don’t want to use that and want to use like a Google+ or a clock widget there?

      You said: 9. Photosphere (panorama) – without the use of a third party app…. We can do this via 3rd party and why the fuck does 3rd party not count??? Your list is full of features from 3rd party apps.

      I say: Basic things like this should be in iOS out of the box. Just sending everyone to the AppStore just to get something and just simply handicap the whole iOS just because of that is not the most clever way to go forward.

      You said: 10. USB host – USB OTG…. umm on iPad if you buy the adapter, you can view both USB pictures and transfer them also works with SD Card.

      I say: Witch adapter is this?

      You say: Then the list starts getting ridiculous and just stupid nerdy shit that is from 3rd party apps mostly and that most Android phones cant do.

      I say: You are wrong here. This list is taken out of what a Nexux 4 / Oppo Find 5 can do. You are just crying because you have realized how freaking bad iOS is when it comes to choices and functionality.

      You say: And this is all coming from a dude who has owned 16 android phones.

      I say: Yes, and by owning 16 Android phones, i’m pretty damn sure he knows what he’s talking about.

      You on the other hand can’t do much more than just cry here.

      • Justin Hubbard

        I responded by the mods never approved for whatever reason.

        Any way, your comment and this list is junk.

        But PS, I’m the dude who owned 16 Android phones. You read it wrong.

    • http://people.ign.com/mrfrodo24 MrFrodo24

      I just want to say that the reason you can compare Android to the iPhone 5S is because all iPhones run the same OS and perform the same functions. As a matter of fact, the 5S has slightly more features than other iPhone models running iOS 7 (e.g. AirDrop). So by comparing the Android OS and all its entities to the 5S, you are by extension comparing Android to iOS 7; a logical comparison.

      Also, Android is not the Windows of the PC world. It’s much better than that, and seeing as you’ve owned 16 phones, you should know that.

    • Bob Bobby

      yeah the list is comparing android with iphone 5s because all iphones do the same shitty thing. Other than the fingerprint scanner(which we do have on android) name one thing that iphone 4 can’t do but iphone 5s can.

      1. about app integration i dunno cuz i never used ios :p

      4.why have 2 when u can have it all in one

      6. LOL u obviously don’t understand what he meant by widgets. lemme ask u a question: can u put a email, gmail or even calculator widget?

      9.that’s because there are some things that u can do with third party android apps such as tasker, but u can’t do those things on ios neither by stock apps nor third party apps

      10.*ipad

      and about third party apps: at least we can do those stuff with third party apps but ios can’t

  • Ruthless007

    What a load of nonsense. Are we talking about smartphones? Or are we talking about 32-bit PC’s with a Bill Gates WinTel mentality of yesteryear?

    I’m still failing to see the point of implementing “ground-breaking” features, with no real-life purpose. I mean, connecting a mouse to my smartphone? HDMI cables? Run as a host server? WTF!!

  • keldorn

    on IOS 7 if you are in a call and:
    -you receive a SMS, the sound from the call will be dropped and the SMS sound will play. There is no way not to hear the SMS tone, unless you put your phone on silent via the button on the side. My old nokia phone, in the same circumstance, it muted the SMS tone AND auto opened the SMS, so i see it after i end the call. bwahahahahaha
    -your alarm clock sounds and there is no way to stop it from ringing while in a call. yes you can stop it AFTER it started to ring, but not before. Not even putting your phone on silent, via the button, works. The alarm will ring and it will be anoying, you will hurry to stop it. On my old nokia, if the alarm sounds while i am in a call, it gets automaticaly muted.
    -basicaly i can say the same thing about -any- event that has a sound warning, while in a call. They all make the call sound drop, they play their own sound, then return you to the call. really really dumb.

    Also:
    -you cant play an mp3
    -you cant set an mp3 as a ring tone
    -you cant set a ringtone longer than 30 second, even tho in my country, the actual ringing before busy tone is 1 minute
    -you cant add a single music file to your playlist from a friend’s computer
    -you cant add a video file to your play list from a friends computer
    -you cant print except to airprint printer
    -you cant really use any bluetooth headset

    this list is getting too long, i will stop here.

    I bought a 1.2 ghz quad core, 5inch, 8mp camera, 1GB ram, double SIM, graphics chip, 1280*720px…every app runs like hot knife in butter. MONEY SPENT: 9000Rs.= 142 USD….IF I GO TO BUY IPHONE IN INDIA
    its 42000 Rs. = 664 USD. I will have to sell my Kidney to buy Iphone 5C.

  • Jason Parker

    100+ features. but maybe 5-10 are actually being used. rendering all of these “nice” features utterly useless. yeah, I gotta admit, android does have things that are better than iPhone. also, iPhone does have panorama even before iOS 7, without downloading a third party app. obviously, whoever wrote these 100 features that iPhone does not have forgot to do actual research. Another one, a person can find more pornographic apps in the android market, than he or she will in apple app store. Also, just because the majority of androids have removable batteries doesn’t mean all of them are like that. to name a few, moto x, droid razr maxx, HTC one x, etc.

    P.S. an iPhone can outlast any other androids out there. simple is genius, not the other way around.

    Android would’ve never been around if not for the iPhone. >=]

    • AppleMinions,☞,BowDown

      800 million active users, over 1 billion activated. It’s a little far fetched to believe only 5 to 10 of these features are being used. And the uselessness is subjective. Because what you may find useless, others would find it as a godsend. Classic iFan comment! And a iPhone can’t outlast the Note 2!

      • Andrew Zoll

        Maybe, maybe not. But it can outperform it, even if the Note 2 is using steroids to alter test results.

  • Patrick

    so can someone tell me what Android phone can do all 100 of those things? cause clearly you’re compare the iPhone 5s to 101 Android phones that can’t do all of those features on one device

  • Netwern

    They have Airdrop though, it’s same like Wi-Fi Direct.

  • lolololol

  • catallie dean

    you guy’s need to do your research again lol apple does have Bluetooth mouse , apple TV & other cool things and yes we can use Google on our iPhone’s

  • Bruce Wayne

    This list is authentic. But answear yourself following questions:
    How long is the list of core-features IOS 7 can and Android can’t? (find an Audiointerface and Sequencer Software on Android, Quality apps etc..)
    And Secondly:
    How many of that features do you really like to have?
    x Use a bluetooth mouse (dafuq??? :) This is what a touchscreen device is for?)
    x Always Listening (Moto X / AutoVoice) (Yeah, why not some unnecessary akku-drain.. (NSA: “easy.” :))
    x Control Televisions (why would I want to do that? Every TV has a much more practical remote with hardware buttons…)
    x Air Gestures (Am I the only one who doesn’t need that sh**? Also I don’t need fingerprint unlock stuff, but thats a practical timesaver at least..)
    x No Porn Apps: the last thing you would expect spyware from, isn’t it? And that on the device you are giving your full trust with phone numbers, locations, eb_anking and so on?? Really??
    x Change system wide font size: iOS7 has that
    x Dual User (NO THIS IS MY SH!T go away other users!)
    x Run Ubuntu (Yeah, we all wan’t this ‘supreme’ and ‘touchfriendly’ OS on our P H O N E S… )

    I think I could go on killing all items on your list, well, maybe not all, but most of ‘em. But now question yourself, turning on your mind and thinking, what is it I REALLY need from my device? :) Maybe you are that Sumsang Galexy S 25 User, totally. But maybe, you’re just the iPhunny 5sggsg user. But maybe all that should not be a kind of dogma, that you foist on someone or even all people you meet.

    peace! :)

  • Kenneth T.

    I can put a comment on almost all numbers on that list. But the Header alone shows how much waste of time that wold be.
    “100 Things iPhone 5S Still Can’t do Android Can”

    Next time try sit down with your friends and then think hard about how many things on that list is Android and NOT product specific or app specific.
    And maybe do a little research to be sure that the iPhone can´t do what you claim it can´t.
    And maybe… just maybe consider finding some new friends?

  • august

    i think a jailbreaked iphone is mutch better than al androids. i think that you can download mutch amazing apps on cydia that i has feuters i can’t do whit an android…
    this is the reason i bought a iphone 5s instead of my old s4

    • ThePandemicMoon

      You can also root android and do the exact same features, but that’s not what this article is about. Plus, jailbreaking voids your warranty.

  • Roca

    From the video on youtube:
    1) App Integration: This guy is an idiot… its there, and i use it all the time!

    x) Multiple accounts: Its a phone or public device?

    From the list: (randomly selected for now)

    14) Apps that allow gesture based control: I just cant imagine the level of his stupidity! Its been there since iPhone 4

    22) It’s certainly there!

    24) Run Ubuntu? Why in the hell?

    27, 28) For what ? if he means silent/loud, two basic profiles are more than enough…

    25) Its a PC or a phone?

    10) A,B: No SD business here
    C: Gadget/APP(for free :P) is available, and can do everything with it…

    36) iPhone’s file system is way different, they didnt want to comprise on speed and efficiency… SD card use is more vulnerable to these…

    37) Certainly i did replace my battery on my iPhone… 2 screws, job done!

    38) Its not a pendrive for godsake

    41) It is there… but under the option child lock!

    34) It has its own… highly efficient… only except for the app Apple Maps… Though google maps is available

    43) U can, and i’ve done it.

    47) OMG>>> i do it all time

    49) I did messed around with it, it was fun

    53) TouchID

    57) ever heard of SIRI

    63) We just want it to be simple!

    71) Seriously? did that technology even got invented?

    66,67) would love it, but sadly i agree, but not all android phones have these…

    76) Present!

    78) Yea, exactly… one word, simple… you just listed same things differently different times!

    88) Again… same things, differently, different times! Siri!

    84) Private apps available, and data monitor itself is inbuilt. or u get SMS notifications…

    85) Wireless option is available or gadget wil work

    87) What the heck? thats the basic!

    82) Who are they? why do we want an android-only developer for iOS… we have similars!

    89) No need of safe mode… its never goes faulty enough for such! The entire system is different… thats their speciality… Both iOS and Mac OS

    94) Its certainly not needed… it will handle itself!

    100) Not needed… and we no need to control other iOS devices… Everything is delivered to everything… love that feature… just goddamn love it… dont know when i’ll be having all Apple, and will experience it myself… Till now just seen it on skype and friends telling me about it…

    86) entire app is available as trial if you want… and there are grace periods option too…

    69) fuck you… i’ve seen many, wont comment on using them

    72) Dont know what it is

    58) Not only televisions, but my PC, and many other stuffs

    81) I use it at nights when im at bed!

    56) Adobe is not ready to develop one… The one you use from android, you have to root, and is a 3rd party different one… we have different method for that…

    55) Its my phone, why do i wanna hide… i would just put them in a folder… and i’ll lock it… certainly, apps are available…

    51) iTunes Radio

    44) yea right… two ways is just not cool enough… i need the ability to draw pictures, faces, diagrams, dance on the phone????

    30) Literally against bluetooth data transfer… iStore is more than what u think… Safe and best!

    5) true HD? we have more than that!

    8) you dont need… we ran a test, i typed faster than my fast typing friend.

    7) Poof, my god, everything is just 10 points and you just listed it different times… its not a freakin pc…

    9) oh really? check yourself!
