In the past I have bashed iOS for the lack of customability and how it\ndeals with certain things. I am now writing to praise some of its\nfeatures compared to Android.\n\nMy wife just upgraded from a Nokia Windows phone to the Samsung Galaxy\nS5. Since we are both new to the Android OS, many of its features were\nunituitive to us. However there were at least three things I noticed\nabout Android that are inferior to iOS:\n\n1) The Notification system isn't very good at notifying you. You get\ntiny icons at the top of the screen that go away sometimes. You must\nget into a habit of sweeping the Home screen down and checking for\nnotifications. At least iOS leaves them on your Lock screen to see\nwhen you pick up the phone and gives three different ways to be noticed.\n\n2) Cellular data control is all On or all Off. With iOS you can\ncontrol apps individually. There are only certain apps I want to have\ncellular capability and I have that control. The Android system\ndoesn't give you that capability. You leave the confines of your WiFi\nconnection and all those background apps are sucking up data bytes\nunless you remember to turn off data.\n\n3) Privacy control is hard to set up, if at all. Once again with iOS I\ncan control the privacy or GPS settings for each individual app. It\nhelps that I don't have a Facebook account as well since that\napparently takes over your whole phone from what I've seen on hers.\n\nI'm sure there are many other feature comparisons that you may have\nexperienced or noticed. Tell me some of them.
