The entire world is going gaga over the new and powerful Android Nougat 7.0. While Android fans are gearing up to receive the software update, Apple?s iOS 10 is in beta stage.
Google, on the other hand, has started rolling out the Android Nougat update to Nexus devices like the Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Pixel C and Nexus 9. However, the really old Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 are left to fend for themselves.
Unlike before, Google enjoyed a problem-free?Android 7.0 Nougat roll out. As of today, we have not come across any major problems caused by the new firmware. However, we cannot say if this status would continue when the same update gets rolled out to other OEMs that are known for adding custom UI effects on top of the OS.
In reality, the ecosystems of both Apple?s iOS and Google?s Android are very well controlled by the respective tech giants. Hence, the problems arising because of a new update should be very less. However, looking at history, this has not always been the case. And this is precisely why an issue-free roll out is a thing to celebrate.
Android Nougat vs. iOS 10
Sure, with Apple iOS 10 in beta, the comparison with the full-fledged version of Android Nougat is not fair. And we are with you on that. However, the new Android OS has some of the best features that Apple would definitely like to emulate in the next-generation iPhones and iPads. So let?s take a look at what we got:
With the new Android 7.0 onboard, devices will be able to run two apps side-by-side (multi window capability). In comparison, the iOS devices do not have such a feature onboard.
The highlight of the new Android OS is the super-charged Doze Mode. This mode is not new to Android as it was introduced in Android 6.0 Marshmallow. However, this time around, this feature has apparently become intelligent.
To be specific, the enhanced Doze Mode will apparently be able figure out if the Android device is being stored in a pocket or a bag. Based on the decision, it will send the handset to ?low-power? mode on its own, thereby saving a lot of battery life,?ZDNet noted. If this feature is not cool, what is?
In comparison, Apple devices are not known for offering impressive battery life. Even though Apple uses all the tweaking tactics to get the best out of even the modest battery units, it?s still not great when compared to the Android counterparts.
Sure, Apple concentrates on the exterior design of the handset like nobody else, and this is precisely why the iPhones get thinner with every release. But this aspect takes a huge toll on the battery unit. As we know, having a thinner chassis means OEMs cannot house a bigger battery, which is a price we pay for the killer looks.
Furthermore, the Android Nougat allows customizable Quick Settings, which gives instant access. But then, Apple fans need not worry as the tech giant is apparently working to fix the iOS 9 Control Center.
With the new Android Nougat 7.0 update, it?s crystal clear that Google has not tried desperately to add new feature-after-feature. Instead, it has concentrated on improving the usability and efficiency of the OS.
Speaking of emojis, Android Nougat brings additional 72 emojis to keep the messaging fans happy. Apple is also known for offering customized emojis. The final iOS 10 build for iPhones and iPads might bring a lot of emoticons.
