Which platform crashes more, Android or iOS?

Mobile app monitoring company Crittercism found that between December 1st through the 15th, 23 different iOS operating systems and 33 operating systems crashed with the largest proportion coming from iOS 5.1 with 28.64% of the overall number of crashes...

It's the same type of question like which country has more cell phone users -- mainland China or Germany? The obvious answer is mainland China due to its large population.
So when asked which OS crashes more, the obvious answer is iOS -- same logic. Android devices tend to have larger screens, 4G, and crappy battery life so it make sense iOS devices will crash more often -- the iOS have more run time.
Now if the question was relative in nature like which OS crashes when up and running ... again, this is obvious.

Good point... and if they did an operating system analysis of the the both iOS and android crashes, android will lose big time... i owned both before just to see how they satisfy my needs and android phones crash most of the time, you will need to take the battery out and put it back in for it to work again. if this was a case for iPhones.. nobody would own any iPhone because they wouldn't be able to take the battery out.
Common sense. wtf..

That makes absolutely no sense. I do know one thing... fanboys of Apple and their products can find an excuse for damn near anything negative about Apple or iDevices...
146. remixfa posted on 04 Feb 2012, 12:08 2 1
really.. ardent... really?
so, not only do you think iOS is more secure and less buggy, but it crashes more because there are more phones out there?????
dude, pay attention to reality. iOS is less secure, and more buggy. There are LESS iOS devices out there than Android devices and its crashing MORE. give it a rest.

I can't wait to see all of the iApologists weigh in. I wonder what approach they will pursue? Attack the report author as biased? Challenge the data sample? Or?

I bet most of the crashes are from iPod touch 4gs on 5.0.1. It's incredible how bad that update has messed up mine (and many other people's on apples support page). Apps crash like crazy :/
44. ardent1 posted on 03 Feb 2012, 03:05 0 1
I did not install Infinity Blade 2 on my ipod touch 4G -- after playing IB 1 on my iPad2, it was clear the itouch was struggling to keep up with the game.
I also had problems with 5.01 on my itouch, however, I really like 5.0.1.
50. TechnoTechyes posted on 03 Feb 2012, 03:20 5 0
Pretty much they do say that 5.0.1 is the big problem for Apple.

Glad to know I'm not the only one. I swapped mine out at an Apple store, and the new one seems to be working for now. As soon as the next iPad comes out though, I'm selling the iPod.

android for me... experiencing right now auto reboots even no apps are running >
43. smartphonelover posted on 03 Feb 2012, 03:02 5 1
If you installed a task manager that could be why. My GS2 was doing auto reboots at random. But after uninstalling the task manager I had it hasn't auto rebooted since. At least as far as I can remember.

What was that about Android apps being unstable and force closing all the time...?
This is going to be so much fun.

To clarify, so that I am not misunderstood: I am commenting on iFanboys' tendency to fall back on tired old jokes like "Android is great, but-FORCE CLOSE! LOLBBQ" and think they're being clever.
However, this study seems to indicate that they don't have so much to laugh about after all.

Oh you mean how Android phones sometimes reboot themselves? Or what about the freezing and lag a lot of Android phones tend to have?
46. Sniggly posted on 03 Feb 2012, 03:07 10 2
You mean the freezing and lag that a lot of *low end* Android phones have? You know, the ones with 600-800 MHz processors? Maybe 512 megs of RAM if they're lucky? Almost zero internal memory?
Yeah, some Android phones are crappy. But not even close to all of them are.
Btw, where do you get off commenting on Android's behavior? You owned one model that glitched out on you; hell, we don't even know what you did to it. You've never shown yourself to be particularly intelligent; your unironic devotion to pro wrestling is just one key indicator of this. You probably did something to f**k your phone up, didn't you?
Also, do you know how often I get comments from older iPhone users about how laggy and glitchy their phones get?

I have an iPhone 3G... +1 to laggy and glitchy.

Oh look, Squiggly commenting on my pro wrestling name again. Actually, I never said I owned one Android phone. I said I owned a Droid. I never said that was my own phone, but good job on trying to backpedal with an excuse for Android's poor stability. i get off commenting on it because I can, just like you do, and there's nothing you can do about it so get over it and stop complaining every time I do.
Btw, to the geniuses thumbing my comments down, please continue to do so. You're not hurting my feelings.

My android gets 4 hours of battery life when surfing the net.
47. Sniggly posted on 03 Feb 2012, 03:09 5 2
Yep. Your Android is also the Triumph, a phone notorious for its s**tty battery life.
Also, the battery dying faster when you do something that requires heavy resources AND a near constant connection to towers? Kind of a no brainer.
103. The_Miz posted on 03 Feb 2012, 11:48 1 5
Like the Thunderbolt? Razr? Rezound? Galaxy Nexus? I can think of many with piss poor battery life.
121. protozeloz posted on 03 Feb 2012, 17:41 1 0
All of them 4G phones with nearly double the data speed ;)
126. KingKurogiii posted on 03 Feb 2012, 18:21 0 0
with the CDMA/LTE models over 10 times as fast. ;D
128. protozeloz posted on 03 Feb 2012, 20:37 1 0
And lets not forget the bigger screens that make playing, reading, typing and surfing really enjoyable and the packed extra ram to store more apps in multi task . Yeah the horror the bloody horror :p
130. KingKurogiii posted on 03 Feb 2012, 21:06 1 0
not to mention slimmer form factors even with these hungry 4G radios. :P
124. tedkord posted on 03 Feb 2012, 17:59 1 0
Yes, true. However, if we were to underclock the processor by 20%, allow only one app in memory at a time, disable the 4g radios (and lose that awesome speed) and remove all real-time widgets, we'd have much better battery life, too.
138. jroc74 posted on 04 Feb 2012, 09:29 0 0
You CLEARLY have never used a RAZR or Rezound.

so what if they have poor battery life? the iPhone isn't any better. and btw when was the last time you heard an android phone exploding due to over charging? or the battery of an android phone randomly catching fire? hmmm.... NEVER. can't say the same about the iPhone tho
157. BattleBrat posted on 05 Feb 2012, 14:29 0 0
My RAZR gets 2-3 days battery life and i proved it, the 4s cant even idle for two days, so off with you and your lies!!
158. KingKurogiii posted on 05 Feb 2012, 19:35 0 0
I have a Razr and even though I use GO Launcher there's no way I could get 2-3 days without turning the brightness to 0, turning LTE and background data off and never use it IF that even gets me into a 3rd day. mine even says 7 more hours on the little battery page you have so much faith in and it's at 15%. I know this thing would die in another hour and a half TOPS with my kind of usage.
159. KingKurogiii posted on 05 Feb 2012, 19:46 0 0
and btw I'm REALLY missing my keyboard. as much as I like this phone there's a pretty good chance I'll decide to trade it for a Droid 4.
160. remixfa posted on 05 Feb 2012, 21:35 0 0
you will get over the keyboard eventually. it takes a little while. once you do you will never go back. no worries.
bout to post some pix of my current battery state. :)

I type well enough with the on-screen even though i do have little qualms like the letter "I" always being capitalized but like you said I'll probably get over those kinds of things. the phone's disadvantages to not having a keyboard is 1. when I type in Landscape it covers up most of the screen which I knew about before hand but using this Razr all the time is reminding me why having a keyboard was such a good thing in the first place. 2. when typing in these kinds of text fields if you ever move the blinky word spawning thing I don't know the name of it's nearly impossible to get it where you want it. that's not just the case with this keyboard however in fact Motorola's Multi touch keyboard is the best on-screen keyboard I've used followed by Thumb Keyboard and Samsung's Keyboard which means I don't want to have to use a third party keyboard with arrow keys because the thingy is being dumb. keyboards are definitely ftw.

Based on my experience with quite a few iOS devices, it's not as apparent as android crashes because most of these crashes do not have an accompanying notification saying that the application has crashed. In android there is always a notification saying the application has crashed or offer you an option to wait if the application hangs
Easiest way to find these issues is to look at the comment section in the appstore. Lot of EA games are littered with comments about apps crashing (not surprising)

I agree, it seems that the iPhone just stops the app and goes back to the main screen. It's smooth, but when it happens I want to kill the thing. Apple probably has a patent on doing that though, so I'll never expect the same experience.
