Study: Android 4.x is more stable than iOS 7.1

Posted by


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.

  1. I think this is a pile of crap, this so_called Study. Excuse this Latin.

    It’s not everything you can compare and contrast. Like, is Eye_bee_kay more intelligent than Mr Mo.? It depends on your yardstick.

    // Android Gingerbread is the worst version of Android in terms of stability./

    What are the talking about.?

    I used Gingerbread for long, and at no time did I feel like throwing the device against a concrete wall.

    The supposed stability of an OS is also heavily dependent on the quality of the third party software on board..

    Comparing TWO platforms for stability is just not ON.

    if the device hangs, it may not have anything to do with the OS !!

    with Android being less restrictive regarding apps placed on its Store, any Clown can jump to any conclusion regarding its stability…

    The interplay of OS, hardware,and apps is soon complex that things used to happen on the Desktop World that no one could explain..

    Let people stop comparing PineApples and Oranges, jor o
