The following is a twin of a video.
ANTONIO VILLAS-BOAS: So, a iPhone X and the Google Pixel 2 both are amazing phones. But, during a finish of the day, we would actually go for a iPhone X.
Design — To be ideally honest, the iPhone X just looks so most better than a Google Pixel 2. The Google Pixel 2 has kind of a utilitarian feel to it. It’ s not a bad looking phone per se. You know, it’s some-more duty over form. Whereas a iPhone X you know it only exudes pure unguent luxury with a glass front and behind and stainless steel frame. I’m flattering certain I’m being objective when we contend a iPhone looks improved than the Google Pixel 2.
Hardware — Android phones, hardware-wise, were a improved option. And actually, the iPhone X has kind of caught adult with that. The iPhone X has a glorious edge-to-edge OLED screen. There’s wireless charging now. And afterwards there’s also fast-charging on a iPhone X. So now we have an iPhone X, that has a lot of the features that Android phones used to have. Those features used to be boasting rights for Android. And now, they’re on parity.
Software — Apps only feel like they’re better optimized and better designed for iOS afterwards they are for Android. And we think there’s a very empirical reason for that. And that’s because, for app developers, it’s easier to develop an app for iOS then it is for Android. Basically, that’s because there are fewer Apple devices that developers need to consider about. Whereas with Android phones, there’s like hundreds, and hundreds, and hundreds of different phones with different specs and hardware inside. Different shade sizes. And they’re also running different versions of a Android operating system. So, Android developers have to consider about what version of Android that the Android users are using on their phones. Over 65% of Android users are using Android 6.0 Marshmallow and earlier. That’s 2015 and earlier. Meanwhile, in “Apple land,” Only 10% of users are on an handling system that’s 2 years or older. 10%! For app developers having a good idea during least of what operating system your users are gonna use really helps. The choice of smartphones that Android brings is great, but it’s also kind of a hindrance that kind of effects app development and apps.
Ecosystem — The ecosystem. We’ve listened this before. Ecosystem … yes. The iPhone works beautifully, flawlessly, with other Apple devices. It’s critical for me. I use AirDrop a lot for example. Also, we know, iMessages. That’s a outrageous think that a lot of iOS users still just grasp onto. And it’s like a large thing that stops a lot of iOS users from switching over to Android. All Apple products just work really good together. It creates only a much stronger ecosystem than what we can find on Android basically.
Stores — You know, if we got a problem with a iPhone, you take it to a store. It’s so easy. Whereas for a lot of Android phone companies, including Google, there are not a lot of stores where we can only move your device, we know, to get it repaired or get some help with something. If we have a problem with your Android phone, you’re substantially gonna bring it to your carrier. For example, Pixel 2, that’s a Verizon exclusive even yet it works with all the other carriers, you move it to the Verizon Store. And, we know, that’ s only not as finish or as good of an knowledge as it would be for an iPhone user to bring their phone to a Apple Store.
Final Thoughts — So yeah, during a end of a day we meant … I adore a Pixel 2 XL. I unequivocally do. It is unequivocally a great, good phone. It’s also a small bit cheaper than a iPhone X. For a ecosystem, for the apps, for a iOS, for the support system the iPhone, and a iPhone X specifically, would be my phone of choice.
