    I have had a android device before but was wondering about the major differences between iOS and android? I'm not a very tech savvy person so I'm just curious.

    This topic is kind of vast and there are thousands of articles out there on the web that cover this very topic. Not to sound cold or crass but this is a very old topic and tech writers get paid handsomely to supply the very information that you are requesting. If you have any specific questions about either once you've found a device we'll be here for you.

    I know it's a pretty vague question, but why does android seem to operate smoother than an iPhone?

    I'm curious too. I've been an Android user for always. Just wondering what iOS features would make me want to use it.

    Of all things, smoothness is probably one where iOS beats Android the most. Android has plenty of strengths - customisability, variety, etc, but smoothness isn't one of them.

    It's difficult to have a real comparison because Android comes in many shapes and sizes but also each OEM tries to tweak it to make it more unique. However there are some things that you can compare.

    iOS has always been very easy to use. There isn't a lot of customisation and as a result everything is in its appropriate place. Every app is on the home screen, every setting is in the "Settings" app. iOS has also been far more efficient than Android since Apple can tailor its software very specifically to the hardware that runs it since Apple make both. iPhones also have the best touch latency of any phone. When you touch the screen it's like the object you are moving is moving exactly with your finger. With all Android devices it's always at least a little slower.

    Android however offers a lot of customisation on the home screen. You can even change the home environment entirely by getting a different launcher from the play store. Notifications are also far superior on Android (especially on Nougat). You can reply to multiple threads in one bundle (e.g. if you have 3 emails bundled from one app you can expand them and reply to each one individually without entering the app).

    Then there's also Google Now vs Siri. This again is generally where Google Now is cigarettes considered better since it's very good at obtaining information (it's Google after all) but lacks the personality of Siri (the jokes, the answers to silly questions).

    I've barely scratched the surface of what the difference is between the two OS's but they're both great in their own different way.
