Better browsing capabilities
While the Safari on the iPhone does give good browsing capabilities, it’s the only option available for iPhone. Which makes the iPhone a little rigid. Another thing is that Safari does not use Adobe Flash player. So you can’t view multimedia content that plays on Flash. Cut to the browsers on the Android phones, they are probably the more versatile ones. Android phones can accommodate multiple browsers that provide Flash compatibility.

Android phones are built on Linux. Everyone knows the code base. This makes it even better for improvements. When the code is known by a wider section of people, improvements to the mobile phone can be made by a wider section of developers. This is a much better thing, than being a proprietary architecture, that only a set of limited people know about. But, the downside of this is that hackers might know how to get their way into Android phones. Yet, this is not a weakness, because if the open source community gets a whiff of it, it is plugged immediately.
There are a lot of other things that make Android phones better than the iPhone. Now with many mobile phone, smartphone, and tablet manufacturers turning to Android, the gap looks to widen more.
