Last year in BCM112 I wrote a blog about open source v closed source when it comes to phones and really, it’s all down to personal preference. None of what I said in the post has really changed until the iPhone 7 came along. I quite like listening to music and using my headphones for long periods of times and with the iPhone 7 having no headphone jack what I needed from my phone suddenly wasn’t going to be given to me. The most shocking part is that it has nothing to do with the main argument of apple v android. Which is about open source v closed source apps and platforms. This article looks at and breaks down the main differences between the two and after all this googling in case I need a new phone soon, I’m starting the agree with my meme… or ill just get a pixel.
