One single screenshot proves that Android murderes iOS when it comes to usability

according to a mobile expert, a single screenshot shows that Android is years ahead of iOS when it comes to usability.

The image is a screenshot of ZDNet's writer David Gewirtz’s Galaxy S4 home screen on, he explained that he regularly uses Android devices and iOS devices, so he's better positioned than most to see disparities between the two platforms.

"Take a look at the screenshot above," "What do you see? What you see is information and control. This is the home screen on my Galaxy S4. I’ve been tweaking it on and off over the past year, until I got it to be exactly the way I want it."

"What you’re looking at is a combination of widgets and icons. The iPhone doesn’t have widgets. The iPhone presents simply page after page of icons. Even worse, you can’t scale the icons, so if you happen to be over 40, you’re forced to squint at your home screen to get anything done. It’s even worse for those damnable folders, with their incredibly teensy icons — and you can’t even set a folder icon."

David goes on to explain that Android’s home screen is designed with usability, flexibility and utility in mind, and it can be whatever you want it to be, that how customisable android can be. While iPhone's home screen is simply a grid of app icons that are static, for the most part.

“When it comes to home screen flexibility, the iPhone is even less flexible than the Palm handhelds were back in the 1990s. By comparison, the iPhone is positively regressive,”
