Long time Android fans finally felt vindicated once Android overtook iOS in the smartphone wars here in the states. But just as the celebrations began iOS seem to be recovering to retake the lead. In a war for the smartphone customer this two horsed race continues to see both platforms jostle back in forth with the lead. With Apple bringing in more android like features and the issues with Samsung's Note 7, HTC and LG's unimpressive showing last year, and Google's Pixel not being able to separate itself from the pack, people were willing to jump on what they felt was the safe bet despite the iPhone 7/7 plus catching heat for its removal of the headphone jack. As a tech fan I am cheering inside because that mean that Android manufacturers are going to have to do even more to grab customers resulting in better Android phones which equates to better iPhones and a win for customers of both platforms.
