Android OS has always been the major competitior for the Apple's iOS. Check out why I have always preferred Android phone over the iPhone. This is my first article so be sure to leave feedback in the form of a comment. :)
Another article to drive up fighting. Carbon copy of the 360 vs PS3 and in the end everyone forgot what gaming was all about.
But come on. Android's interface is head over heels better than iphone and windows phones.
Video proof on why Android > iOS6
in time they will be like Nintendo VS Sega ... just old news. and thus the circle of life.
Read the article and I still don't want one. I'll just stick to Apple products Android just doesn't do it for me.
It's simply matter of opinion. Have you tried any Android phone?
I don't know anyone who has an iPhone who has actually tried any android phones. Even when I show them what I can do they say well - my iPhone can do this...and then I show them that my phone can do the very same things. then they just say that the iphone does it better...***facepalm***
A Droid site saying you should buy a Droid phone, that's like Wendy's saying not to buy Burger King.
There conspiracy of Wendy's hehe
As much as I disagree with you on most things budget, I'd agree this time and say that an article like this is obviously skewed. I hate when Playstation sites bash Xboxes, or Android sites bash iPhones...makes no sense because that bias is always there.
Andriod is the obvious choice for me. 3.5" screen, o ty. 1 central button to retard proof people not smart enough to figure out what 2 more buttons might do, no ty again. A price point of 2-3 times more for slower hardware, no ty even more.
The article says that 'almost 36%' of smartphones being made run Android OS, but sources generally seem to place Android with around 60% of smart phone sales and a little more than 50% of active smart phone usage. http://www.bgr.com/2012/07/... http://www.email-marketing-... http://www.phonearena.com/n...
Thanks for indicating that. I wrongly quoted the Q2 2011 percentage. Will correct this now.
I'm still trying to find a reason why I should ditch my 4S for an Android phone, but even these kind of articles aren't selling me. Most of the things they've just described are either just small conveniences that aren't game breakers or the iPhone can already do them. I think for newer customers Android is a great option but for those that already have an iPhone, I wouldn't go switching over completely if things actually work for you. Think i'm going to stick with my iPhone for a while now - it's fast, does everything I need it to do, and iOS 6 beta is currently running great!
Guys the article is basically meant for newbies. After using both the iPhone 4S and One X, I found Android platform to be more useful and to be something which users might prefer. I know how good iOS is but what I wanted to clear here was that Android is not that bad as some people might consider it. In fact it wins over the iOS at certain places. I'm not saying to leave iOS. What I'm saying is that one should have a go with both the platforms and the choose accordingly. I did this and found Android better than the iOS so went for it. Others might have done the opposite. So, article is just meant to point at some of the reasons for which I chose Android.
All the reasons of owning an ios device over an Android have slowly (if not already) disappeared. Now it's a matter of opinion as opposed to what is actually a better overall product. The original iphone was miles ahead of the competition, heck, even the last iteration iphone was arguably ahead (as an overall premium product). They dictated the flow of the market. Piecing together the right technology into achieving an overall balanced device. However the Korean and Japanese electronical giants that contributed to the technology of the iphone are now in search for the success of their American business partner. Hence, better competition. Although I now prefer using Android ICS over iOS which to me iOS is lagging in features, I will remain agnostic until the iphone 5 is released. Only then can we sum up a fair and equal comparison between HTC one X vs Iphone 5 device running the latest Jelly Bean and iOS 6.
Pretty solid reasons to buy all smartphones, but I think I'll stick with my windows phone. Never thought I'd say that, but it's really great.
I've been a die hard apple fan since day one! It's all about preference. Iv grown accustom to having the iPhone. They both have their ups and downs. I must admit that the android is better in its on way. I like the freedom without having to jailbreak your phone with android. I like iPhone's simplicity and design. We'll see what happens when the iPhone 5 comes out. We'll see if android is better then. Smile.
Prefer USB mass storage to using a software to sync content with the phone.. That'd be my main reason for staying away from apple..
Spot on sir. Everything is just easier for the computer minded. ios is for sheeple. Kinda like COD. Trying using bluetooth on iphone and connect to any other phone, oops you can't. Pathetic. Don't get me wrong, iphones are well built, siri is very nice. But SS2 is better then 4s in everyway. Oh btw, SS2 takes much better video and pictures then the 4s as well.
i m in love with windows 7.5 mango !!
I'm just happy with the control Apple has over the iOS. I worked with Linux and after years there were too many flavors to keep it interesting for me, now I'm afraid the same will happen with Android (how many versions are active today ?).
Android phones just offers high specs and very PC like freedom where kids and techs flourish. Its a carbon copy of windows but just for phones. For the average phone users, there not interested in the bells and whistles. They just want a phone that works. Hence why iphone has been so successful. This is the same as 1995>2006 period where each phone had one more feature with a price tag doubling. Then everyone got bored and smart phones came about.
