Now a days Apple and Google both are tycoons as well as competitors of each other in the field of technology.Over the last few years, Google’s Android OS and Apple’s iOS competing each other with respect to introducing new features.Now Google has announced Android Lollipop last week and introduced some features of this new version of Android OS. I found following four features in Android 5.0 Lollipop which are missing in Apple’s iOS 8.
- New and Advance Imaging Features
- More Security Features
- New Guest Mode
- Battery Saving Features
New and Advance Imaging Features
YUV and Bayer RAW formates will be used for capturing photos in Android 5.0 Lollipop. Google also give some advance features for Android L users which are still not available in Apple’s iOS 8. Advance users features includes:
- Control Capturing Settings for flash, lens and sensors
- Capture metadata (like light and noise information)
- Built in 4k video recording
Thus, Google is winner in Image capturing because Apple’s iOS 8 has no such control and no 4k video recording feature.
More Security Features
Google brings new safety features in Android L which are still missing in Apple’s iOS8. Security features includes followings:
- Pairing android L device with any of your trusted smartphone, wearable, tablet and even with a Bluetooth connected car.
- Face Unlock and drawing custom patterns.
As compared to above mentioned features of Android L the Apple’s iOS8 allow users to secure their device with four-digit PIN or sign in with thumb impression.
New Guest Mode
Google learning from users behaviours and improving android OS features in time which are attractive and useful for users.Google now introduced “Guest Mode” feature in Android Lollipop. Guest Mode is same feature which is available in Microsoft Windows OS in desktop PCs.So, don’t worried more about your android device basic settings while your’s kids playing games on your smartphone and tablets.In this way important settings of your primary user account are safe but only selected apps are available for guest user.
This feature is still not available in iOS8 because Apple’s iOS only dealing with single user.That’s why guest mode sharing among different users is not still present in iOS8 and hopefully Apple will include this feature in its next version of iOS.
Battery Saving Features
Google Lollipop save more than 1 hour battery life of your android 5.0 OS base device by using following tricks:
- Save upto 10 mins of battery by reducing performance of your device.
- Save upto 30 mins of battery by disabling connectivity features.
- Limiting vibrations & limiting some other options
Moreover, Google is also working on Project Volta to limit battery drainage.It will boost battery life.
