It wasn’t too long ago that we put the major mobile operating systems head to head, but with big updates from both Google and Apple in the meantime, we think it’s worth another look at where they both stand. Is there a clear winner? Or are they barely distinguishable any more?

For many of us, it's hard to imagine a world without mobile phones. Yet according to the global association that represents mobile operators (the GSMA), although nearly 80% of the population in Europe were mobile subscribers at the end of 2014, this figure drops to less than 40% for areas such as Sub-Saharan Africa. This is certainly something to consider the next time you leave your mobile at home, the battery dies, or you temporarily lose reception.
Of course, mobile communications are about much more than simply convenience; there are those times when a phone call may be a matter of life and death. Unfortunately, telecoms infrastructure is typically expensive, particularly when it comes to mobile network infrastructure. As such, operators may deem it not economically viable to provide services to less densely populated areas. This means that those who would arguably stand to benefit the most are often those who have to go without.
