An iPhone vs Android face-off video has reignited the old debate around which phone works better. While there are several companies you can choose from if you want to buy a smartphone, most of them will run on one of two mobile operating systems: iOS (for iPhones) or Android.
Both platforms have amassed their own fan following over the years. While iPhone loyalists claim their phones - manufactured by tech giant Apple - are technically superior and have better cameras, Android fans refute such claims by talking about the advantages of their phones - more functionality and more features for half the cost of an iPhone.
Now, a video that has gone massively viral on Twitter claims to show, in real time, which phone works faster. The video was originally uploaded to TikTok by user '@corylewis04'. In the 33-second clip, an iPhone and an Android smartphone are placed side by side. A user clicks on both of them simultaneously to see on which phone apps open faster.
The user opens a variety of applications - from Twitter and Instagram to the hugely popular mobile game Among Us. In almost all the cases shown in the video, apps load faster on the Android phone.
"Androids will forever be superior," wrote the Twitter user who shared the video on the microblogging platform. Incredibly enough, they used "Twitter for iPhone" to do so - a fact that did not go unnoticed.

"iOS devices are so consistent and the in-app animation and scrolling are so much smoother than Androids," one Twitter user said.
