iOS 13 vs Android 10 | Darkmode + Gestures Comparison



Android 10 was just launched and I decided to install it on my Pixel 3a XL to see what all the hype is about! With a new dark mode and navigation gestures I had to compare it to Apple’s iOS 13 on my iPhone XS Max to see how they stack up.

In this video I compare the quality of the dark modes found in these operating systems as well as the new navigation gestures Google implemented to Apple’s established gestures that came with the launch of iPhone X

    To me, the back swipe is one of the best navigation features. I use it all the time on my newly installed One UI 2.0 on my Galaxy S9, but a couple of things. First, I use swiping from the right to go back, but I also use Samsung's edge panel on the right side. So, I've positioned the latter higher on the right side, and I have to be mindful of the two different swipes. Also, the back swipe sometimes interferes with the keyboard when that's visible. So, I have to be careful of positioning for that, too, and have the hide button available on the keyboard as well.

    Like most things Samsung, it can be more complex. But, if you can make it work, I think you get a better and more customized experience than with an iPhone. That's just my opinion.

    Why is the gesture control navigation bar so small on some Android devices with Android 10? I also have Android 10, but the bar is completely long for me. It doesn't bother me, but I just want to know why.

    Instagram looks horrible when in dark mode on Android 10. The pitch black on Instagram is an eye sore…I think Instagram works better with a white background, so perhaps a gray background instead of pitch black would work better.

    I find the gestures on both the UI's as infuriating. I have excessively sweaty hands which are the enemies of gestures. Buttons were good, that's why I like the fact that Android still provides an option for them (especially the One UI).

    well, this video is just a bit outdated. today, with all the apps up to date, you get dark mode on automatically in almost all the Google apps including play store, chrome and Gmail with the toggle switch in android 10

    For Chrome, you can enable dark mode by going to chrome://flags and searching dark mode. You should enable the three options which appear. Restart Chrome and go to settings. There will be a new setting called themes. You can now enable dark mode.

    The gestures actually originated in WebOS / Palm Pre, many years ago. It's not just Google that copied them, Apple did that, too.

    Android is basically all you can eat restaurant or foodcourt, you can choose any type of food you like it's a lot of variants there is a cheap one and there is a bit pricey one…
    iOS in other hand is a fancy restaurant with specific menu in it, you just can only choose in-house menu
