The real and objective reason why iOS is more fluid than Android

Android or iOS? IOS or Android? One of the million questions that plagues geeks. Each person is a world and has their particular tastes, however the figures and benchmarks sometimes lead to confusion. And is that, what good is that the shift Android has twice the RAM than the iPhone 7 if then it goes slower? Are we going to open so many apps at the same time as they are shown in the videos? No, neither speedtests nor benchmarks help us too much to choose what we truly need for our daily lives .

It does not make sense to judge a mobile by its specifications or by tests that we are not going to carry out in our day to day . And yet there is an undeniable fact: usually for the iPhone is usually a walk with respect to the competition: yes, they are more secure and stable (that is undeniable and we have already explained many times), its operation is more intuitive but also have more fluidity, and there is an objective characteristic to confirm it: latency.

What is latency?

Speaking fast and to be understood, latency is the refresh time of the screen . Or even easier: like when the doctor gives you a hammer (care, of those therapeutic) in the knee and measures the time it costs for your leg to react. In mobile, a fast latency gives the sensation of immediacy: you touch the screen and it reacts instantly. On the other hand, if the latency is low, touch the panel and wait for the reaction of the device.

Eye that we speak of milliseconds, that is to say, the thousandth part of a second and even then, it is noticeable .

Why is iOS more fluid than Android?

No, we have not let ourselves be carried away by the love of Apple. Apple designs the hardware and implements the software, so the integration of both is optimal , something that does not occur in Android, where manufacturers have nothing to do with the operating system developers, so you'll see that in many cases New mobiles are not even compatible with the latest Google OS.

And also Apple seek excellence in terms of user experience . As detailed in Andro4All:

    The iPhone X simulates virtually a complex process that the system works at 120FPS every time you touch the screen, so the feeling of fluidity is brutal.

Even so, the latency of all terminals of the bitten apple is optimal. Without going any further, another recent example is the iPad Pro, a pioneer in including the retina screen at 120Hz , something that later came to Android thanks to the Razer Phone.

A user of Reddit has entertained himself grouping the latency of mobiles of the last 20 years (among many other devices). Here there is no cheating or cardboard, are objective data that show the reason why iOS is more fluid than Android :

In the table, the black and red color represent a very high latency , that is, a feeling of low fluidity. On the contrary, lighter shades imply greater fluidity, that is, lower latency. See how the GameBoy Color sweeps over any Android.

One of the most flagrant things for Android is that even the oldest iPhone have lower latency than Android now. A lot of work to do in Google and one more reason to stay in iOS.
