Android and iOS are battling each other in every major market in the world, and gaming is the biggest part of that fight.
I play a lot of games on my iPad and iPhone -- but they're almost all paid apps. The only two free-to-play games I have on my devices are card games -- Sol Forge and Hearthstone.
I'm happy to see that 2K finally released XCOM on Android, but I would love to get Hearthstone, Trials Frontier, Monument Valley, FTL, Calculords, and Hitman GO on my friggin' Nexus 7. At the same time, those figures explain why I don't see those games on Google Play.
On the bright side, Hearthstone is confirmed for Android tablets by the end of the year, the FTL team has stated that they hoped to release FTL on Android at some point and Hitman Go is supposed to see a release on Android "soon after" the iOS release, I would expect it in the coming weeks. On the not so bright side for Android users though, is that the Infinity Blade series and The World Ends With You Solo Remix are still iOS exclusives. In my opinion, if someone wants a tablet/smartphone to play games on, the iOS ecosystem has the better exclusives, and also has plenty of timed exclusives.
Android all the way, Apple products are user-friendly girls fashion accessories
Keep in mind without those iPads, Androids might not have become so popular.
Say that all you want, but iOS has some great exclusive game Apps.
They are indeed in fashion. That's what good design and build quality gets ya.
Switched back to Android from Windows the other day. Got a HTC M8 and I'm loving it.
I was dieing to get that phone the only turn off is the camera, I can't stand it...but it's perfect size, and feel:(. If it had the S5 camera or at least the Nexus 5 camera I would have made the switch but the dark pictures just don't justify it enough for me to switch from my s4. Hopefully the S5 omega (or w.e it's called) actually comes out I'd love that phone). M8 has to be the sexiest phone ever though! I love those beats speakers!
i went from an iphone 4 to a nexus 4 and tbh ive never looked back next up i will be getting a nexus 5 yeah baby iphones pfft and double pfft on people that buy a windows phone lol android all the way for me :D
For gaming, iOS is the best I think both from a developers perspective and a user perspective. Android is so buggy and the Android users only download free games.
http://www.technobuffalo.co... Android cannot be categorically described as buggy anymore, pal.
Trust me, I develop for it and own both a phone and tablet. It is by far more buggy than iOS. Getting an app to work across all Android devices is an exercise in futility. They all run difference OS's and each OS is customized and all of them are buggy as hell. Android is awesome and I love it, but I can't lie and say it is a stable OS for development or even use for that matter.
mm.. nah I'll trust the report of a performance monitoring company over the word of some random dude on the internet. did you even read the article? apps crash half as often on kitkat as they do on the most recent version of iOS 7. development challenges due to fragmentation does not equate to android being "buggy". this is no longer 2011. kitkat runs like a dream.
IOS all the way, Android is ridiculous.
Google, why would any want to be restricted so much through iOS? Android + root = FTW. Being able to use unofficial apps (not talking about piracy), and ps3 controller with your Google device is awesome. Why on earth would I ever want to game on iOS? The only shame is the amount of apps iOS has over Android, hopefully devs will smarten up and see where the true potential lies. Apple Laptop user, I don't do iPhony.
never been a gamer through my phone, i'll stick to consoles!
