In Play Store, there are two apps with almost same descriptions from same developer: uTorrent and BitTorrent. What's the difference between them?

Effectively nothing. The two desktop torrent clients, uTorrent and BitTorrent used to be developed by two separate groups. Late 2006, µTorrent was purchased by BitTorrent Inc. Since then, they started shipping BitTorrent as a re-branded uTorrent, but also kept uTorrent around. Wikipedia

Because of this, they maintain one program, but have two versions separated only by name, and it seems as though they carried this over to their Android apps as well.

    The two programs share the same update description - but for some reason BitTorrent Pro is two times cheaper than uTorrent Pro.

    I guess they do this to drive people away from µTorrent, and push them towards using BitTorrent instead, so they could phase out µTorrent completely in the future. Feb 14, 2015 at 17:39

Agree with the user53233 that both were own by the same community but still feel that Bittorent is slightly better than utorrent. Following are the reason of my claim:

  1. In my 10mbps connection, BitTorrent performs better than Utorrent.
  2. when I checked both on MAC, Bittorent also feel slightly better than Utorrent. Here is a guide which can also second my opinion. https://www.vpnranks.com/utorrent-or-bittorrent/
