iPhone 4S Seducing Android Users with Fluid UsabilityNovember 17, 2011 • Posted by CrackDefender in News • Tags: Apple, Apple Iphone, Iphone 4s • 0 comments
Now that the iPhone 4S has been launched and the honeymoon period is over, there are a few faults beginning to show, like yellow tinted screens. However, a few Android users have moved over to use the iPhone and there is
usability factor they discover that will keep them using the iPhone.
The Android interface is powerful and there are some really great smartphones out there using it however a lot of power has been put into the new CPU of the iPhone 4S. The Apple A5 has a lot of functionality that is working on the dual-core chip and there are no pauses as you move from one function to another. This is the feeling you get from the Android, as you scroll around the screens and move from application to application, there is the accumulation of all the different functionality fighting to use the CPU and an occasional lag is felt. Compare this with the absolutely fluid and smooth operation of the apps in the iPhone 4S and you are hooked.
On the other side of technology is the experience of many Windows owners who experience the great smoothness of operation when they first get their machines, only to find down the line with the addition of one bit of software and another plugin there that everything changes. The smooth browser experience that comes with a new machine becomes the World Wide Wait, as these lags accumulate and slow the experience right down.
It is going to be interesting which of the devices, the Androids or the iPhone will suffer from this accumulation over time. With the iPhone already making itself felt with fluid operation right from the start with its new chip on board. The Apple A5 may have been under-clocked at 800MHz (the chip can go at 1000MHz), to save the battery life, but it seems that it is still running fast enough to allow the software to run seamlessly.
