Android Lollipop Vs iOS 8

After Android KitKat, the update was due for some time now. Hence, Android 5 Lollipop is here, which can now be updated. Android and iOS are the leading operating systems of the mobile world and there are a few differences in both of them. Let’s find out which of the two is more efficient and worthy of your finger tips.

  Android Lollipop Vs iOS 8

Here is the feature comparison of Android Lollipop vs iOS 8:


Because of the all new “Material” design of Android 5.0, everything on the screen looks more real and physical. Shadows are casted through every object and everything you tap on, it will show a small colored or shaded ring in order to provide greater feedback.

On the other hand, the graphical overlook of iOS 8 is really modern and sharp. It is now sleek, simple and clean too. You can see the lively palette of color popping off the screen.


It is one of the core concerns of both which has become the crucial part of every Smartphone. The all new interactive Notification Bar is the new big feature of iOS 8. The user can not only view the received message but can even reply to it quickly that too without even opening the application.

On the other hand, Android 5.0 Lollipop has gifted the users with various improvements to headline notifications. Like in every phone, during an incoming call, it appears on the whole screen to notify the user, but, in Android 5.0 the scenario is totally new. The notification for the incoming call appears in a pop-up window to tap away pesky distractions.


In both the operating systems “Sharing” the content is completely different. Apple has allowed its users to share the content like music, videos, applications or games with others. But, don’t wonder how you can share devices because of unavailability of multiuser support on iOS devices.


After going through a few speed tests, it has been noted that the browsing in iOS 8 has been a bit slower than its counterpart Android 5.0.


Exclusively when it comes to gaming, Apple has always been a clear winner. Moreover, a huge collection of games is available on iOS in contrast to Google Play Store, making Apple miles ahead. 64 bit chips are provided by Apple and planning for incorporating a new gaming API is on the cards to provide more flexibility to the developers.

In order to boost the performance, Android 5.0 would also now support 64 it processor. Nvidia’s K1 64 bit chipset is now set to debut in Google Nexus 9 along with the all new Snapdragon 810 from Qualcomm.


Through the power management in Android 5.0, Google is claiming great things. The battery life has seen a boost 36%, which is about two hours. It was tested while browsing web pages over Wi-Fi. Just like in Android devices, Apple has also introduced the feature where the user can check the detailed battery consumption and see how much each application is draining. Whereas, while testing, Apple’s battery life does not seem to be as improved.
