The disparity between cell phone sizes produced by Apple and Samsung are apparent. Ever since Steve Jobs’ passing, Apple’s popularity has dropped amongst consumers.

Easily, the most well known cell phone developer is Apple, but, as the San Jose Mercury News noted, ever since Steve Jobs’ passing, Apple’s stocks are dropping.

 Their competitor, Android, is picking up pace in the great consumerist race, with an increase in popularity. Both of these companies produce cell phones, tablets, and computer devices.

 Personally, I have owned an iPhone, iPad, and iPod, all of which are creations of Apple. I currently use a Samsung Galaxy SIII, and love it. I prefer the Galaxy over the iPhone for many reasons:

1) The Galaxy has a larger screen which is better for people who enjoy playing games on their phones. Also, the screen makes surfing the internet and watching YouTube videos much easier as one’s fingers do not mis-click.

2) There are easier shortcuts. For example, if one wants to sync one’s Facebook account with their phone, one’s newsfeed appears in a window on one’s home screen. Also, contacts on Facebook, including peoples’ emails and phone numbers, sync into the contact list.

3) The camera on the Galaxy is exceptionally better than the camera on the iPhone. The Galaxy’s camera is twice as large, allowing for clearer images and videos. This also makes editing photos all the more easy.

4) The screen on the Galaxy is smoother and does not smudge as easily as that of the iPhone.

5) If one already has one’s music on iTunes, like I did, one can still sync one’s music to the Galaxy.

In contrast, the iPhone’s smaller screen makes clicking things harder for people with larger hands. Also, the poor resolution makes pictures more pixelated. All of these reasons amount to more than enough persuasion for me to purchase an Android phone over the iPhone.
