Within the past six months, the mobile phone operating system battle seems to have come to a head with the release of Apple's iOS 8 and Android's 5.0 Lollipop. A report on Mashable on how both operating systems fare when compared with each other says that "iOS 8 has as many features as Android" while on the design side, which was historically Apple's edge, the Android 5.0 Lollipop "has an almost iOS-level of fit polish and finish."
