iPhone vs Android - How do they compare?

Can I use my iPhone or Android to watch TV?

Which one do you choose? What about security? Let's compare the differences here.

iPhones are traditionally considered the most secure. They are not foolproof but most malware has been written for Android phones. iPhones have a closed platform as do the old Blackberry phones. Since it is easier to break into Android, it is simply the more targeted system.

No matter which type system you have, the best way to protect your phone is to make sure you implement all the updates. Some people think this is a hassle, but it is the absolute best way to protect your phone.

Another way hackers get in is through the Apps. Apps are updated regularly to keep hackers out so make sure you are updating your phone and always research the Apps you want to add.

What about quality and features?

Both devices rate about the same for picture quality and sound when comparing the latest versions.

Features are comparable and depend on your lifestyle. Some say Android is more customizable than iPhone. Phone performance varies depending on the whether or not you have the latest version. Most of what you want to do can be done well on the newest versions of either platform.

Latency is a factor in all Internet connections. Satellite Internet latency is very slightly more than others (about half a second). However, Satellite Internet provides a steadier signal which is an advantage over other providers.

Not all latency or lag time is caused by Internet providers. Online gaming, especially MMO's, uses shared Internet servers that can become overcrowded and cause lag time. Overloaded routers in the home and even weather can cause delays. Did you know some gamers use lag switches to send lag to other gamers?

Most gaming runs very smoothly and you can find an incredible amount of information by going to Exede Community Online. There are blogs written by gamers who have tried and tested many games and give great tips such as: set game launchers to update manually only; disable peer to peer settings as needed; set Windows to metered connection.

Watching data allowance is huge. You can get late night free zones with certain Exede Satellite Internet packages. Download updates during your late night free zone without affecting your data allowance. And, if you go over data allowance, Exede only slows you down, you don't get cut off.
