By the end of 2012 it was clearly evident that iPhone will bring home the baton in this marathon for dominance. The Rome was not made in a day and so was the iphone. It took a huge amount of time, money and effort for developers to give away something so magnificent. The marvellous looking iphone is an outcome of demand cry which prevailed in later half of the previous decade. There are reasons attached to the development of this machine; firstly, lack of a versatile device which can handle communication and entertainment at the same time, secondly, huge demand for a technological shift in the mobile communication industry.
The iPhones scores over others in terms several features which hold the key to the survival of standoff. Although most OS today support multi tasking but this is where iPhone takes the game away from all others, due to excessive features provided by platforms like Android, Blackberry Os etc the battery runtime takes a beating but in case of iPhone it is not much of an issue. In terms of openness, yes it may be regarded that there is a wide scope of improvement.
The default software keyboard of iphone will win a clear majority in terms of usability. The nimble and silky movement of screen helps in managing all your searches chiefly. The system wide search in iphone is exceedingly good at what is does, searches include even the e-mails. In terms of notification displays iphone may not be at the pinnacle but is still manages to grab the attention of user by making up for that in terms of other features. The voice to text feature is better than most of its competitors and because of the new SIRI it works even better than earlier. Due to mammoth rise in demand for it iPhone application development across world is picking up and developers are searching for newer and improved iPhone apps.
Sync modes are fair enough but plugging in and connection to itunes should be hassle free i.e. wireless connection could have done the trick over here. Connectivity issues like wifi hotspot to several friends are being worked upon and soon Apple will come up with a more sophisticated technology which leaves no stone unturned to prove iPhone's dominance here. The iOS update is genuinely a tough call to attend for others as the ecosystem in which an iPhone is present is updated until of course your phone is the oldest of the lot. Going by the numbers the Appstore has almost thrice the number of application in Android market but yes it is full of redundant and frivolous applications. And genuinely if you go by the experience of users iPhone is unbeatable in terms of gaming and entertainment; excellent display quality and brilliant sound quality make it a euphoric experience to use an iPhone. Quality if graphics and sensors make it so close to reality that it is almost impossible to imagine anything better than this. Well the others have too much to catch up with crowned King of the mobile communication at least in terms of mobile application development.
