Both operating systems introduce updated interfaces, new ways to interact with notifications, updated security features, designs, keyboards and more. So which software release is better for business users?
Well, Android Lollipop does provide more features than iOS8.
But, let us compare the two based on some of their features to form our opinion as to which is better for us.
Android apps have been updated with its “Material Design”. Streamlined interfaces, and apps in general have a more consistent look across the board and it even offers the developer to use that design in their android apps.
iOS 8 design is similar to its iOS 7. iOS 8 is introduced with a flatter icons and cleaner layouts.

It will allow user to unlock there device without entering the password. There will be unlocked when they are close enough to the device like Android SmartWatch.
But the drawback of both the OS security is everyone cannot use this security feature until they have iPhone 5S or Android Smartwatch.
We can’t say exactly how Android Lollipop and iOS 8 will affect the battery life of the devices. But Android Lollipop has an additional battery saving mode which iOS 8 doesn’t. Android Lollipop coming with the new battery saving mode which give the Nexus 5 90 minutes more battery life but the battery life of iOS8 is similar to the old operating systems of Apple.
