Which Is Better, iPhone or Android? Let the Debate Rage

Qualcomm has put up the list of innovations in its blog post. The findings showed that iPhone fared better when it comes to fingerprint sensor for login, calls, music and podcasts, search, set-to-vibrate option and Siri.
The post claims that Qualcomm and Android partners were both the first companies to achieve industry firsts such as wireless charging, dual cameras, phones with OLED displays, bezel-less designs, phones with 4K resolution, and much more. Apple is expected to finally rollout this sign-in technology in the iPhone X, years after Microsoft/Nokia and many Android devices makers first implemented it. But facial recognition has always sucked, and Apple was right to ignore it during this nascent phase. They are accusing the chip maker of asking for royalties that are too high for Standard Essential Patents. "Qualcomm has enabled some notable world firsts on Android, and some remain Android exclusives to this day".
Qualcomm is at war with Apple, and at the bottom of this report you'll find the many reports that we've covered on this battle.
The first technology it references is super-fast Gigabit LTE, which is a nod to Apple and Qualcomm's ongoing legal spat over licensing fees. It mentions the Gigabit LTE, available in all Snapdragon 835 devices. It offered a fisheye-like view to the world using the tech.
Qualcomm says it helps "countless companies across the globe to commercialize our inventions at both speed and scale, and with a choice for consumers on price points and features".
Iris scanning technology links to the Galaxy S8, but it actually debuted on the Galaxy Note 7. Although the chipset company listed sample devices (not to be confused with pioneers or firsts), we are pretty sure the Galaxy S8 still does not have a dual camera on its back.
The Qualcomm list also gives a hint at the specs and features of the iPhone X that will be unveiled tonight. But it was only last year that the LG G5 broke among the masses as a dual camera phone.
Then again, with Apple trying to destroy Qualcomm's business model worldwide, Qualcomm's bombastic attack on the iPhone prior to Apple's big event should be expected to some degree. The company seemingly believes that it is no longer necessary to be first.
The new iPhone will grab the spotlight, but Apple's other moves are even more interesting.
