Android 5.0 Lollipop experiences fewer app crashes than iOS 8



When choosing a smartphone is often the first question in the room: Android or iOS? That depends basically on your own preferences from. A study now shows, the latest iteration of the mobile operating system from Google proves to be more stable than the competing product from Apple. As a result, Android 5.0 Lollipop crashes  is more stable than iOS 8 apps.

There are now companies that deal exclusively with the evaluation of system performance. Such has recently dealt with the juxtaposition of Android and iOS. The data shows Android 5.0 Lollipop has more app crashes resistant than iOS 8, the latest version of the mobile operating system from Apple. The crash rate is lower by as much as 0.2 percent.

In iOS 8 crash 2.2 percent of the applications in Android 5.0, there are only 2.0 percent. For while Google has managed to scale down the crash rate, they have risen for iOS since the last comprehensive version jump by 0.3 percentage points. With Android 4.4 KitKat measured by Crittercism figure was 2.6 percent, which is on par with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the year 2011 – the behavior under Android 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 Jelly Bean published data. However, the proliferation of Android 5.0 according to the latest figures still somewhat limited, however with Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S4 Moto G (2014) and co popular devices these days are supplied.


2.0 percent Android 5.0 vs. iOS 8 2.2 percent
2.6 percent Android 4.4 vs. iOS 7 1.9 percent
2.6 percent Android 4.0 vs. iOS 4        —

The measured crash rates depend meanwhile greatly from the solid to rate hardware. This is especially true for Android and the large number of cooperating producers – and thus the test results all the more remarkable – but also Apple maintains older device models with the latest iOS version equip. In addition, the tested applications play a significant role. To this end, unfortunately Crittercism published data. Last year the company but also issued a study on the crash behavior of Android and iOS, which does not coincide with the actual measurements. At that time one crash rate of 0.7 percent was reported for Android 4.0 and 4.4, with iOS 7.0 or 7.1, 2.1, or 1.6 per cent. It is unclear to what extent has Crittercism the test procedure may be modified to now come to the numbers to be heard.

However, in the end, the average user should anyway no difference between a crash rate of 2.2 percent or less within everyday notice and thus be happy with two mobile operating systems – other factors allowed time out of it.
