If you’ve ever used an Android phone during the early days of the mobile operating system, then you know just how wonky the overall experience could be. General jank, navigational stuttering, overheating, and slow speeds over time – the problems with most early Android phones made it hard not to jump to the land of iOS.

Of earlier models, Samsung Galaxy phones like the S4 were notoriously bad in terms of slowing down over time. Sure, most phones naturally degrade in performance over time, but there was (and still is to a certain extent) something about Samsung phones that made them age in the worst way possible.

Why is this?

Likely culprits exclusive to the Samsung lineup include its bundled feature set and user interface, but general issues related to aging hardware only compound the issue.

The short of it: Modern flagship devices on both iOS and Android are incredibly fast. Most are overkill when stacked up against current app requirements. Differences in speed are mostly negligible and come down to your preference for navigation (quickness on Android vs fluidity on iPhones).

Whether you’re an iPhone or Android user, the utility of speed has never been more useful. Writing documents, composing emails, capturing life’s moments, and generally keeping the flow of life intact – phones have never been more useful. These days, most people are using their phones as pocket sized computers instead of solely relying on them as a means of communication.

And when you find yourself in the moment of crucial multitasking, there are few things as annoying as running into a brick wall of lag or stuttering. While the majority of high end phones have matured in terms of speed, it’s still worth looking into whether or not your next device is ultimately up to the task.

Which begs the question: are iPhones faster than Android?

The answer, like most involving technology, is mostly ambiguous. In some aspects, the hardware delivered by Apple is superior to that found in Android device, but ultimately, speed is often a factor independent of a device’s hardware.

Does Android have Siri?

Quick answer: No, Android phones do not support Siri. Siri, similar to apps like iMessage, is exclusive to the Apple ecosystem. The best alternative available on Android phones is Google Assistant.

Despite what reservations you may have about Apple, there’s no denying that the iPhone offers unmatched integration, fluidity, and useful features that are dead simple. One popular feature that most iOS devices offer is the inclusion of Siri. It is one slice of the digital assistant market, a sector that has been booming over the past few years.

What was once thought of as absurd and impractical has now become commonplace in the daily lives of users trying to make calls, send texts, set reminders, attain information, and automate in a general sense.

At this time, Siri is exclusive to the Apple ecosystem. This means those using Android phones (Samsung Galaxy, Google Pixel, OnePlus, and so forth) will not be able to use the feature. Unlike various exclusive Android features, there is no unofficial APK (Android Package Kit) for Siri.

Why is Siri absent on Android?

Apple thrives on its exclusive suite of features and products, and making something so integral to its growing AI division wouldn’t make sense from a business perspective. The evolution also benefits the growth of Apple’s catalog of services and products.
