Phil Schiller: Products That Run Google Android Are Inferior to the iPhone

Posted by · 14247 views · Translate
Speaking with the WSJ, Apple SVP Phil Schiller said that products which run Google's Android operating system are inferior to the iPhone. Schiller's comments come just one day before Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S IV smartphone.

Apple's research shows that four times as many iPhone users switched from Android than to Android during the fourth quarter, according to Schiller. He also said that Android users are often running out of date operating systems and that the fragmentation of Android was "plain and simple"

"Android is often given a free replacement for a feature phone and the experience isn't as good as an iPhone," said Schiller. He feels that Android suffers in part because different elements come from different companies; whereas, Apple is responsible for all its hardware and software.

"When you take an Android device out of the box, you have to sign up to nine accounts with different vendors to get the experience iOS comes with," he said. "They don't work seamlessly together."

The 'iPhone 5S' is predicted for release this summer in order to compete with Samsung's new Galaxy S IV. It's rumored that the device has already entered production.

As much as I love my iphone 5 much more than my note ii (which I am posting this with btw) phil schiller is just a douche inside outside and all around. While its true phones like the s3 and note ii overall suck balls when it comes to storage or basic os format, there is no need to blatantly just say the os is overall inferior, I mean just look at htc and sense 4.x or even better their new htc one (M7) which I look at as an android iphone 5 basically in terms of build. Sense 4.x and 5 makes for as close to seamless function as android can get. Samsung fails horribly in many areas which is where I think this is more directed towards, but that is just from my point of view. #FUCKYOUPHIL

+1Billion ^ The HTC One is easily superior or at least the equivalent of Apple in terms of premium hardware. The current Android OS smokes my locked down crippled and limited iOS on all of my 5 iPhones purchased in the past.

I am happy you camp on the Droid side... however I would love to hear why you prefer the Google platform? Mini SD card slot? -- thats hardware. Larger screen? -- again hardware. A pen? -- lol hardware yet again. Android? -- its open? You are open to more Security troubles. You are open to more Viruses too. Your Phone DOES NOT upgrade its OS. WHY ON EARTH do you LOVE ANDROID? What is it you do personally with Android to make your life better... ? Open provides you with customizable screens? eye candy -- doesn't improve anyone experience or use. True multi-tasking? -- okay but it really sucks the multitasking on Droid. And with cheaper models of phones that run Droid... there just isn't enough ram included to manage apps well. The top Samsung Phone COSTS no different than Apples top Phone. try now to convince everyone... come on.
