What is the difference between an android cell phone and a non-android cell phone?
One has android and the other has another operating system to interface with the hardware. I don't think there's much to this question. And if it were to be answered by going into specifics of how different OSes handle the hardware it would be a too broad answer.
I'm a little confused... :uhh:
Android: Very customizable. Open source operating system is easily changed, hacked, manipulated, and molded to fit whatever functionality you had in mind. Your friend definitely has one to try. Found on all platforms for all prices depending on what hardware and software version you are interested in. Second largest app store. The battery is usually replaceable.
iPhone: The first smartphone that was actually smart. Always turns on and always works. Same operating experience on all iPhones. The screen has the most pixel density. Hardware is made for Apple to Apple specs and cannot be changed. Has the largest app store. Most phone accessories are made for iPhone ranging from alarm clock docking stations and credit card scanners to stun guns.
That is the difference..
