Android devices continue to be more reliable than iOS
- Whether your smartphone is with an Android operating system (which is likely to be reading these lines) or iOS mounts, you will have at least once seen “crashing” an application or having some malfunction in general. Software, as well as hardware, is not perfect and therefore quite normal, but which of the two operating systems would be the most stable and reliable from this point of view?
According to Blancco Technology Group’s report titled “Q1 2017 State of Mobile Device Performance and Health Report,” the number of general device malfunctions has increased both on Android and iOS. As far as reliability is concerned, however, it is the green robot to have the best: the report, which analyzes the so-called “failure rate” (includes excessive performance problems that can not be solved by the user), includes data coming from millions Of devices of both systems to which diagnostic tests have been performed.
The Android device failure rate stands at around 50%, with a slight increase over the fourth quarter of 2016, while the iOS counterpart has risen from 64% to 68%.
Again, according to Blancco data, iOS applications “would crash” triple times compared to Android: this kind of malfunction represents for iOS 28 percent of all “failures” of Q1 2017 versus 10 percent of “rival”. Other major issues are overheating (3% on iOS), GPS connection (0.5% on iOS), weak signal (6% on Android) and camera (3% on Android). Below you will find information about North America and the entire market.
The report argues that, as far as iOS is concerned, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have the highest levels of “failure rate” (ranging from 3 to 10% and 3 to 11% respectively), while on the other hand Samsung Galaxy S7 the “black sheep” (9%). In fact, these latest data may not be very significant as they relate to three of the best-selling devices on their respective platforms.
Are you surprised by these statistics or did you expect it? Do you find that Android is now more stable and reliable than the eternal “rival” iOS? Let us know what you think in the usual box of comments.
