Android vs iPhone: 3 ways Android outperforms the iPhone 15 Pro

The iPhone 15 generation has received major upgrades, including the Dynamic Island feature, improved camera with a 48-megapixel sensor and 5x optical zoom, and the addition of USB-C. However, when it comes to overall performance, Android smartphones still have an edge in several areas.

One example is Android’s Action Button, which allows for assigning shortcuts and performing various functions. While the iPhone 15 Pro introduced an Action Button, it can only perform one function at a time. Android smartphones, on the other hand, offer the ability to reprogram the power button to perform different actions when pressed multiple times.

Another area where Android smartphones outshine the iPhone is in the display. While iPhone screens have excellent brightness and color, features like always-on and a 120Hz refresh rate are restricted to the Pro models only. In contrast, many cheaper Android models offer these features, such as the Samsung Galaxy A54.

Lastly, the switch from Lightning to USB-C in iPhones was long overdue. While USB-C on iPhones allows for convenient connectivity and charging, other Android smartphones offer faster data transfer speeds and charging capabilities. For example, the Xiaomi 13T Pro can fully charge in the same time it takes the iPhone 15 Pro to reach 50% battery.

While the iPhone 15 generation has made significant improvements, there are still aspects where Android smartphones outperform them. These include the flexibility of the Action Button, the inclusion of features like always-on and a 120Hz refresh rate, and faster charging capabilities with USB-C.
