Samsung didn’t include any IP rating for the A51, so you should avoid getting your phone wet.

IOS vs Android
Apps Available on iOS vs Android
Android has more apps on Google Play, which currently has 2.5 million apps available, and Apple’s store has 1.8 million apps. Traditionally, IOS has been a more profitable platform for developers, so there has been a tendency for new apps to appear there first, but that is changing as Android’s market share continues to grow. In the U.S., iOS still leads the way, but developers around the world are increasingly targeting Android first.
Play Store still has a higher percentage of free apps than the Apple Store, but the best mobile games still land on iOS first – and they don’t always come to Androids. Ultimately, quality beats quantity, so this is a win for IOS.
Apple devices in most cases beat Android devices on speed tests that involve opening several apps one by one. However, it should be noted that the difference could be in how app developers develop their apps for Android vs. iOS. The fact that they are on both platforms does not mean their internal working is the same.
Android doesn’t really have security problems. Google is just more lax than Apple about what applications it will let into its app store. The best way to keep malware off your Android gadget is to only get apps from Google Play store. Google reports that 0.16% of all apps contain malware.
iPhones are inherently more secure – because IOS is a closed system and you can’t download apps from any source other than the Apple store.
This has always been one of Android’s major strengths. It’s very easy to customize your phone. Setting up the layout you want on your home screen and adding widgets and shortcuts is as easy as it gets.
You can set backgrounds on iOS as well, and there’s limited support for widgets, but you don’t have the same level of freedom. Android also allows you to set up third-party apps as your default options for many things that are still locked down on iOS. If you enjoy tinkering, or you want a unique, personalized look for your home screen, Android is for you.
