Comparison: Android 5.0 Lollipop Vs iOS 8
Whatever smartphone model we choose, everything we do is pretty much dictated by the kind of operating system it uses. Both iOS 8 and Android 5.0 are latest releases of two mature mobile platforms. They come with comprehensive app stores that provide us with untold thousands of 3rd party apps and games.
The Lollipop and iOS 8 embrace the same minimalist, more flattened design. It’s a huge departure from earlier releases with more prominent design elements. In these modern user interfaces, we can get smoother animations, bolder colors and an updated typeface. However, changes seem to be less visible on the iOS 8, because it has adopted the flat design last year in iOS 7.
The Lollipop has its notification system overhauled with its interesting pop-ups. The iOS 8 comes with more interactive notifications that allow us to perform related actions, such as dismissing and replying straight from notification. Both platforms now offer integrated voice-command system, which can be enabled just by saying either “Hey Siri” or “OK Google” key phrases. They allow us talk with our phones using natural languages to get relatively accurate information. While Lollipop continues to be a highly customizable platform, the iOS 8 now supports 3rd party keyboard.
