4 android ios features

Both Android and iOS are competent mobile operating systems, while Android does have a few functions that the iPhone still lacks. It turns out that some functionalities are still only accessible on Android phones despite all the improvements. We’ve listed 4 unique Android features that Apple’s iOS misses.

Clone App

You can replicate apps and utilize numerous accounts on Android phones. Making a copy of the original WhatsApp program and using a second account on it will allow you to utilize two WhatsApp accounts on your phone.

Download Sammy Fans App

The software of some Android phone makers, including Xiaomi and OnePlus, has this feature. If your Android phone does not already have this service installed, you can download a third-party clone app from the Google Play Store.

Modify default system apps

You can’t really customize many default apps on an iPhone. iPhones now have the option to change their default apps, except for the Email and Browser apps, according to the iOS 14 upgrade.

A phone running Android offers much more. Any third-party software with a better user interface and feature set can replace all of the standard apps, including the phone, messaging, digital assistant, and home apps.

Always on display

Many Android smartphones have an always-on display option that enables you to monitor particular details like the weather or battery life without waking up the full screen.

It can be customized to show app notifications, the current date and time, the music you’re listening to, weather alerts, and other information. For smartphones with an AMOLED screen, the feature is useful and battery-saving. iPhone lacks this feature so occasionally your screen may wake up to notifications, which can be annoying.

Install Custom ROMs

Custom ROMs are enhanced editions of the Android OS that come with a tonne of customization options and better functionality. The primary benefit of custom ROMs is that they provide your Android phone access to the most recent software, which increases the lifespan of the device.

You can have full control over your Android phone if you have root access. Once your smartphone has been rooted, you may add various mods for personalization, overclock or underclock the processor to boost efficiency or battery life, use a portion of your internal storage as additional RAM, and even boost the screen above 60 Hz. iPhone doesn’t offer to root, and it’s more difficult and doesn’t give you as much access to your device.
