How Android bests the iPhone

The Android operating system beats the iPhone in a number of areas. CNET tell you what they are.

CNET readers often ask us just how the Google Android operating system compares with the iPhone's OS. And with good reason, for Android has grown into a formidable player in the smartphone world. Of course, Android is different than the iPhone, but variety is nothing to fear. Android may lack some of the Apple handset's glamour, but the OS and its gallery of handsets offer a lot to like. And if anyone ever tells you that the iPhone is always superior to Android, you really should listen no further. The little green guy beats the iPhone in quite a few ways, some of which we've wrapped up here . And hang tight, iPhone fans, as we're prepared to extend you the same courtesy. Check back later this week for ways that the iPhone can overpower Android.
