While Apple is still following Steve Jobs' maniacal thermonuclear quest against Android, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak recently admitted that he likes Android better than the iPhone, although he still uses the latter one as his primary phone. Wozniak explained Android has better voice commands and navigation than the iPhone, and added that he feels that the iPhone has too many limitations.
Steve Wozniak may have helped Steve Jobs build one of the greatest consumer electronics empires in the world, but this Apple co-founder admits that he loves his Android handset. During an interview with the Daily Beast, the Woz blasts the iPhone for its limitations and highlights a number of perks that Android brings, including voice commands that are better than Siri and navigation. “My primary phone is the iPhone, I love the beauty of it,” Wozniak says. “But I wish it did all the things my Android does, I really do.”
The statement was heard around the world, as Wozniak adds fuel to the bitter battle between Apple and Android. It’s a rivalry that harkens back to the days of Apple versus Microsoft back in the 1990s, where Apple lost out to volume, pricing and accessibility. Wozniak thinks Apple’s mobile strategy may not be differentiated enough, however, saying “there’s not as big a difference [between iOS and Android] as there was between Mac and Windows.”
