Apple and Android continue to dominate the smartphone market. Samsung has led the fight against Apple with its range of Galaxy devices, while HTC and Sony also offer support to the Android army.
One area where Apple has struggled to fight back against Android is price, with the firm refusing to release budget devices to target the mid-market. Even the 8GB iPhone 5C version released this week costs a significant £429.
However, price has never been an area where Apple has tried to compete and instead its devices have plenty of other key features and selling points.
So, after listing our top 10 Android devices earlier this month, we have put together the top 10 areas where we think Apple has the edge on Android. Let us know if you agree or disagree in the comments box below.
10. Quick and easy to use
While learning how to use any new piece of kit can take some time, even the most confused tech user can master an iPhone in a short while. The layout is simple, with everything given a clear symbol and name, such as Settings or Camera.
It's easy to add email accounts and change key settings too. Compare this with the confusing widgets and icons layout of Android - which can vary from one phone to the next as firms load their bloatware and software tweaks - and Apple definitely has the edge.
The fact the interface is the same on iPads too only adds to the ease of use that makes Apple so popular.
