“We’ve lately been of the mind that comparing Android and iOS phones primarily on specs, benchmarks, or hardware basis is folly,” notes the source while adding that ultimately it’s not about specs or features.

They say that while most consumers choose between Android and iOS on the basis of software, services, and different philosophies about openness, customization, and privacy, at the heart of things, this division is actually because “the two platforms represent different world views.”
