Guys what’s up it’s Chris from DailyTekk.

Today I’m going to show you what makes iOS and Android different by focusing on some of their similarities.

They both have features like lock screens, home screens, multitasking and cameras — and even run many of the same popular apps.

And when it comes to competing software, the big question is what the user experience is like for each: looks, ease of use and overall functionality.

So today I’m going to take a look at several basic features within both OSs to help you choose the right one for you.

Now a quick note before we get started: different Android phones are going to have slightly different hardware features like cameras and processors and even slightly modified versions of Android itself, getting a look at these core features should give you a pretty good idea about what to expect from the Android operating system.

Alright so this has been a comparison of some of the core, common features shared between iOS and Android including running a few popular apps.
