The Android OS is Linux-based and partly open source, is more similar to a PC than the iOS. Android is now the world’s most used smartphone platform, which is used by several different types of phone manufacturers. The iOS, however, is only used on Apple devices.

Again, currently, the North American market favours iOS, with 53% smartphone domination. ANDROID OR IOS? WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD?
