There was a time when Symbian was the Smartphone king. But since the launch of IPhones and Androids, the times have changed. No Doubt IPhone has a great OS and Build but what we cannot deny is that Android is the new king. Its fast overtaking the market share and most probably will emerge as having the largest smartphone market share this year.There was a time when Symbian was the Smartphone king. But since the launch of IPhones and Androids, the times have changed. No Doubt IPhone has a great OS and Build but what we cannot deny is that Android is the new king. Its fast overtaking the market share and most probably will emerge as having the largest smartphone market share this year.
So here we will discuss the top 5 reasons why you should choose an Android Mobile Phone.
1. Lot of Phone Options to Choose From
Unlike Blackberry and iOS, Android is an Open Source OS and a lot of Phone manufacturers have launched the mobile phones supporting Android. They are built on different hardwares, have different physical builds, dimensions and specifications, ability to support external micro sd’s, camera’s, and most importantly faster processors.
One can choose from a low budget Android Phone to a High Budget Android Phones. The Phone prices starts from $100 and goes upto $700 so you get a lot of options to choose according to your pocket. Whereas Apple has launched only IPhone which is high end phone thus cannot be afforded by masses and Blackberry (Outdatesd OS, Physical Build and Over Priced) has no longer features comparative to Android and IPhone.
2. Ability to choose your Desired Carrier Service
With Android Phones you have the ability to choose your preferred Carrier Service. So it means that you have better alternatives, better tariff options, plans, signals to choose during this tough economy phase.
3. Power of Google and Android Market
Undoubtedly, Google is one of the largest Technology company in the world. They would keep on updating with the Android OS with the latest features, bugs and fixes. We have seen the Android Growth from V 1.5 to V 3.0. Also the Android Market is growing at the fastest pace and Google would keep on adding tons and tons of applications which would soon make Android Market overtake Apple Market.
4. Flash Support
This is a big point for me, although Steve Jobs stressed that Flash isn’t important but we still see in our daily browsing life that there are lot of Websites that have some part of it as Flash. This is where Android comes into play, it is the only major OS that supports flash. Flash Fanatics have no option to choose other than the Android.
5. Staying in Touch
Android has the best connectivity tools. Android Phones will have email apps built in, and you’ll be able to use this and any social networking apps either with a SIM or Wi-Fi to get regular updates.
Setting up mobile email is easy. Gmail is handled separately from other email, and after you’ve entered your address and password, your Gmail account will automatically sync with your Android device.
Both personal POP and IMAP email and Microsoft Exchange (work based) email is also supported and you can set up multiple accounts. You may need some login information (SMTP and POP servers for personal email), but that’s easily obtained from your email address provider if you don’t have it to hand.
Your Android device may come with social networking apps, such as Twitter and Facebook, built in. You can also put widgets, such as TweetDeck, on a home screen to help you stay in touch.
At the end of the day, when you are choosing your Phone we suggest you to not get caught by IPhone and Blackberr hype and compare the features of Android with other phones fairly.
