Are iOS phones that much smoother than Android or is it just a matter of price point that makes the struggle to pick one difficult?

Smooth talk

Apple’s iOS is so much smoother than Android, yet Android phones sell better. How come?

First things first, it’s not like iOS phones are smoother, or Android phones are not. There are many Android phones in the market, which are neck to neck when it comes to smooth performance as compared to the iPhone. As far as the selling point is concerned, there are multiple points.

First, iPhones come at a price point that not everyone can afford and Android on the side has a huge variety, starting from 5,000 going up to 50,000 (like Samsung Galaxies and stuff). So, the customer is able to choose as per budget. Second, is the flexibility in terms of options available - the customer can choose according to his/her requirements; being only camera-focused/battery life or display.

Being smoother or selling better is not directly related to consumers’ phone choices, in my opinion.
