I’m an Android user and I don’t really have any experience with iPhones and quite frankly I’m biased towards Android for a number of reasons. And I’m a geek so I’m not the right one to judge the “easy to use” test because it’s usually easy to use anything that works. There are also a lot of Android phones out there so it would also depend on which one you compared. For example I like the Motorola droids better than Samsung.
So – I keep hearing people say that iPhones are easier for “normal” people to learn. So skipping everything else, I’m looking for opinions from people who have significant experience on both phones. Is it true? Are iPhones really easier than droids? the question assumes that users are going to be somewhat heavy users. Lets assume that besides making phone calls the user is going to do these activities:
- Email Access
- Maps and Navigation
- Voice commands for voice texting and voice navigation
- Utilities such as Calculators, timers, alarm clocks, etc.
- Usability while driving in a car dock
- Web Browsing
