10. The size of the display.
Fifth iPhone can boast a diagonal of 4 inches, which is considered quite average among the best Android phones.

For example, Galaxy Note II has an impressive screen diagonal of 5.5 inches.
A desktop that can be filled with widgets of your own choice is a big plus for Android. In iOS, to get to the widgets, you need to enter a special menu.
Running applications on Android continue to work even in a "collapsed" form. But on iOS the application ends its work, as soon as the user stops using it.

6. Exchange of files with the computer.

By the number of available applications, both systems are almost equal, although Android owners have more opportunities to get applications for free. And the presence of Android embedded Adobe Flash almost does not limit users in the process of Internet surfing.
