“The Droid Bionic or the Iphone4S,” a question that one may ask themselves if they are considering trashing their current Verizon Wireless feature phone for a power-packed smartphone. There are many factors to consider when making your choice between the two smartphones. Either phone you chose you would need to get a data package if you do not have one. Other factors include the operating system, the features, the specifications, and the network technology which all have their advantages and disadvantages. My expertise derives from two years in the wireless industry; I received numerous calls daily from consumers needing help with a variety of issues including picking out their next phone. Before making a purchase decision on which smartphone will be your next, ensure you know what the potential smartphone has compared to your needs.

First you should understand the operating systems of each device. Per mobileburn.com, an operating system “is the master software that is run on a smartphone.” It controls how the phone boots and what features will additionally be offered besides those of the manufacturer of the phone. The availability of downloading certain applications is based off which operating system you run. The Droid Bionic possesses the Android OS which is known commonly by its green robot logo or use of deserts for its different versions. The Android OS is also popular for its open development platform; this gives its consumers the ability to create applications for use on the Play Store. The Play Store is an online marketplace that offers over 200,000+ free and paid applications to its users. The Apple Iphone4 hones the 4th generation iOS, iPhone OS. The apple software was first released in 2007, and has become a must-have in many households. The iOS yields the apple logo, and has a closed development platform. This means that only developers for Apple are able to create and modify applications available in the iTunes store.
