Android P vs. iPhone X: Which navigation with gestures is better?

Google introduced its new beta version of Android P during a conference at its I / O event in 2018 with such interesting news as Google News, adaptive battery, editing screenshots, artificial intelligence in its virtual assistant and in Google Photos ...

The truth is that the conference led by Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, had a bit of everything: funny touches of humor, very innovative novelties and many surprises. However, despite offering many new features, some of the features of Android P seemed to be inspired by iOS 11 .

One of the functions that reminded us most of Apple's mobile operating system is the navigation with touch gestures in Android P. Interestingly, they are very similar to the usual gestures of iOS, but they are strangely similar to the new touch gestures of the iPhone X. But which of these navigation systems is better?

How the futuristic design of mobile phones has completely changed its operating system

The war between iOS and Android takes years and years to see how users discuss what operating system is more fluid, more stable, more complete and which of them offers a better user experience, greater performance or more customization. However, reality tells us that both operating systems are much more similar than we thought . And a clear example of this is its navigation system with tactile gestures.

After the removal of the start button on his iPhone X, Apple had to completely redesign its tactile gesture system to offer its customers a more intuitive navigation. And in Android, basically the same thing happens. Since 2011, all Android mobile phones used a navigation system based on three touch buttons on their screens: back, home and multitasking . Now, everything has changed.

With the arrival of new mobile phones with a spectacular Infinity screen that covers the entire front of the devices, it is imperative to create a specific navigation system for them. Google has already begun its transition to controls based on touch gestures . But Apple has been doing it since the end of last year. Which navigation system leads?
Android P vs iPhone X: the battle of tactile gestures

Although both navigation systems look exactly identical, they are not. To access the App Switcher (the user interface of the application multitasking) of the iPhone X it is necessary to slide your finger up from the bottom of the touch screen. But, in addition, you have to make a small curve with your finger to the right.

On the other hand, to access the multitasking screen "App Switcher" of Android P you just have to swipe up. Nothing else. Apple reserved this tactile gesture so that its users can return to the home screen in a more comfortable way.

Additionally, in Android P, if you lengthen the tactile gesture by sliding your finger a little more, you will have the possibility of interacting with a panel in which all the applications installed on your device are found. And this is very convenient.

Of course, both mobile operating systems offer another series of tactile gestures to open the Notification Center, the Control Center or to activate the virtual assistant . But its intuitiveness is so basic that it does not support comparisons.

In short, I personally love both navigation systems. Although I miss a button or a tactile gesture that allows to close all applications at the same time. But the truth is that these new tactile gestures are very useful, easy to use and allow us not to miss the physical buttons. After all, the two systems are so similar that it is difficult to opt for one or the other.
More Android P innovations inspired by iOS 11

As mentioned previously, Google also incorporated other very useful improvements in its new beta version of Android P. The arrival of artificial intelligence will cause a before and after in the digital era , completely revolutionizing the way we use our mobile phones. In Android P, artificial intelligence will positively influence the virtual assistant, the news of Google News and the Google Photos images.

Finally, it is worth mentioning some other new features of Android P that caught our attention in the I / O conference in 2018. Google seems to have been inspired by iOS 11 to offer its users a quick editing system of screenshots very similar to Apple , and a functionality to change the brightness of the screen automatically.
