Most of the smartphones available in the market use Android operating systems or other OS built off Android. The other options available for consumers are iOS and Windows Mobile devices.
What makes Android a better option for those looking for a new smartphone? It’s in how it’s built. Here are some of the reasons why:
With a huge variety of options, there’s something for everyone on every budget. You can choose a phone that best suits your needs. Do you want a high performing device that can multitask? Do you want a high quality camera? Do you need a dual SIM phone?
There are endless options for you.
Some of these features cannot be found on iOS or Windows devices. They are also available in many colors and designs to suit your style. Affordability also remains Android’s strongest selling point, regardless of the manufacturer.
There are at least 100,000 more apps available for Android devices as compared to those available for iOS and Windows devices. While the gap between Android and iOS apps are close, Windows devices only have access to around 400,000 apps.
On the plus side, there are more free apps on Android than there is for iOS. In fact, some apps that are free for Android come with a cost on iOS devices. 92% of the apps on the Google Play Store can be downloaded for free.
Compare one iPhone homescreen with another and you would see that they’re identical. Meanwhile, even phones of the same model can look different when they run on Android. Each manufacturer also adds their own unique look to the user interface. Samsung even has a theme store where you can choose from a variety of free and paid themes.
From here, users can also add widgets on small homescreen versions of their favorite apps. This means that they can do a specific function or give you a quick glimpse of the app without having to turn it on and run it. Even your lockscreen can come alive and be functional with the use of customizable launchers. Your phone, your way.
One of Android’s most solid features is the level of integration with Google Apps. While iOS and Windows are catching up, there is something high level about the seamlessness of using one Google account to access everything you need.
Android devices also come with Google Now, a personal assistant that proactively offers information that could make your everyday life easier. For example, you have an event scheduled on your phone’s planner. Your Android device can remind you that it is coming up, tell you about the weather, give you directions to the venue, and how soon you can get there.
Android devices are ever-evolving and more and more options are being developed each day. Manufacturers do this while still keeping features that have proven to work well. With its affordability and positive user experience, you can find the perfect Android device for you.
