The debate between Apple and Android users continues to be fierce. Over the years, both operating systems have seen many updates and now share many similar features.

However, even after so many updates, there are still some things exclusive to Android phones. To help you decide between the two, here is a list of the top features that iPhones lack:

1. Storage Upgrades

This can be one of the biggest advantages of Android phones over Apple products. Most Android phones offer the option to add additional storage by purchasing a micro SD card.

For anyone who stores large files for work or many photos, this means you can even transfer that data from one phone to another effortlessly.

2. Using Multiple Copies of an App

On Android phones, you can create clones of apps and use multiple accounts on them. So, if you want to use two WhatsApp accounts on your phone, you can make a clone of the original WhatsApp app and use another account on the clone.

3. Creating Multiple Users and Using Guest Mode

Multiple users and guest mode are a blessing for users who share their smartphones with other family members or friends. On Android devices, this feature was introduced with Android 5.0, while Apple has completely overlooked this feature over the years.

4. Using Apps from Other App Stores

Android devices usually come with the Google Play Store for getting new apps. However, Google has not locked Android into just one app store, with Samsung, Amazon, and other manufacturers having their own app stores. iPhone users, on the other hand, are limited to installing apps from the Apple App Store.

5. Split-Screen Mode

Especially for those who work on their phones, being able to view two apps at the same time is a really useful productivity feature that allows you to do more in less time.

Android users have been enjoying this feature since the release of the Nougat update. iPhones, on the other hand, have not caught up with Android phones in this regard.

6. Change Font Style and Size

One of the great advantages of the Android system is that you can customize the interface to look the way you want it to. One of these customizations that you can do on Samsung and some other Android phones, but not on the iPhone, is changing the system font.

While the default system font is suitable for most people, you should still have the option to change its size for better visibility (especially for older users) and change its style to personalize your phone according to your taste.
