While the ordinary proving ground of the smartphone may be the mean streets of the city, devices are to be found on the field of battle, too — and if a report from DoDBuzz is to be believed, Android may soon be giving way to iOS for some special operations forces.
According to a source not authorized to speak to the media, the Samsung device that acts as the brain of the Android Tactical Assault Kit is a clunker.
It lags, freezes, and needs to be restarted too often; the iPhone 6S, apparently, is faster and smoother.
A split screen view of a drone s live video and the map showing its route, for instance is better on Apple hardware, the source said: It s seamless on the iPhone.
The graphics are clear, unbelievable.
If the switch took place, the ATAC would become the iTAC, at least for certain Army special operations field work.
