When it comes to features, iOS 10 beta and Android N Developer Preview are unique in their own special way. Both pack in a lot of great features under the hood. For instance, iOS 10 brings to the table several visual and feature refinements, whereas Android N has powerful multitasking features such as multi-window apps support out of the box, even on smartphones.

Android N interestingly passes up on a lot of feature additions and instead focuses a lot on refining what's already there. Overall, Android N feels extremely snappy compared to Android Marshmallow, and this is a developer preview release we're talking about here. We're quite sure Google will throw in more performance polish in the final shipping build.

iOS 10 on the other hand is seeing its first beta build being handed out to developers. With occasional bugs around different corners, iOS 10 still feels snappy. We're quite certain Apple will throw in a lot of visual refinements and performance enhancements into the mix as more beta builds of iOS 10 are released. We will, of course, highlight them out for our readers as they arrive.
