Used to having their favourite OS thrashed by iOS lovers for being less stable, Android users will be glad to hear this: the latest versions of Android OS are far more stable than iOS 7.1, the latest version of Apple’s mobile platform. Android Gingerbread is the worst version of Android in terms of stability. While iOS 7.1 has the lowest crash rate in Apple’s recent lineup, and beating Android GingerBread by just 0.1%, it is far worse than Android 4.x.
An excerpt from the news item:
The study was done by Crittercism, which processes over 30,000 requests per second in real-time from over 1 billion mobile users. The study took into account complexity (hardware x OS version x carrier), app responsiveness, and app uptime. It found that iOS 6 crashed 2.5% of the time, iOS 7 got better with a 2.1% crash rate, and iOS 7.1 is the most stable at 1.6%. But, Android was far more stable across the board with Gingerbread (2.3) at a 1.7% crash rate, and all versions from 4.0 and higher had crash rates of just 0.7%, meaning iOS 7.1 crashes more than twice as much as any Android 4.x version.
