10 things in iOS that will annoy Android users

Every operating system out there has its own kinks and distinctive features – no matter if its hardware platform is PC, ultrabook, tablet, or smartphone, there is no unified way to go about things, as manufacturers try to create a user experience in their own way, based on how they envision the platform should work. So, naturally, when a customer has become used to one system, jumping on to another will result in a period of adjustment, which will be filled with minor and not-so-minor annoyances – some of which don't go away and may prompt the user to go back to their old software.

So, what happens when one who has spent years with Android handsets gets an iPhone as a daily driver? Well, Apple has been known for keeping a tight grip on the way its iOS operates, which is in stark contrast with Android's openness, and this difference in philosophies will be a main cause for annoyances during the adjustment period. But there are a few other specific quirks that may break the initial or even overall experience for some users, so we went ahead and did our best to find the 10 most notable offenders.

Before we start the list let us accentuate that this does not mean that one OS is worse than the other. And fear not, the same list is done for the opposite side, too.
