Concerning this week’s topic of ‘I love gadgets’ I decided that I would do something a little different in comparison to other podcasts, in order to explore what I could with technology and the creativity it would allow me to exploit.
I have decided that I would do a short cover of the song ‘anything you can do’ sung by Betty Hutton and Howard Keel. The cover feature lyrics written by me and are compiled in a way that would feature apple and Samsung arguing over who is best in computerised voices! enjoy 🙂
There’s no doubt that Apple phones are one of the biggest sellers in the world, although this does not diminish the ongoing battle between Apple and Android users.
The battle goes far deeper than simple aesthetics, one of the main differences to be pointed out first is the smart phones interface. While the iPhone runs on the iOS and has a simplistic fixed layout that allows users to interact with ease, Samsung allows total customisation that cannot be achieved with the iPhone unless one jailbreaks it. To some this customisation is an important aspect as it allows them to personalize their phones layout to their liking, to others it over complicates the system and represents a cluttered distraction.
Regardless of the constant argument over which phone is ‘better’ at the end of it all they both do the same thing. They both make calls, send messages, takes photos and anything else one would look for in a smart phone. It all comes down to personal preferences, an aspect this ongoing battle seems to ignore time and time again as we are blinded by our loyalty to the brand. I for one as an iPhone, during this week have found multiple faults in the Apple product, possible as many as I find in android products. This left me with the question, ‘does it really matter which is best?’
