Why Switching To Android Would Be A Good Thing

In today’s world of smartphones and tablets, the market is dominated by Apple and Google, with random sightings of Windows trying to leave its mark in a fairly new territory.

Sceptics and Apple loyalists may staunchly disagree to anything coming towards them, yet there are few facts that stand straight in this debate. Let’s have a look!

1. Multiple Hardware Options

Want to own an Android-based smartphone between the 10-20k bracket? A bit more? Maybe a high-end? Then feel free to go for the Sony Xperia S, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy Duos, and many more! Android is thankfully available across an array of handsets featuring different hardware capabilities; right from camera quality, to screen size, resolution, processor, battery life, and practically everything else! And even more so, they all have the universal Micro-USB Port, something that can be found anywhere and needs no hassle to get hold of. Apple on the other hand only gives one particular option with the only difference of memory capacity. And it costs a bomb over its competitors.

2. More Apps, More Fun

Android market is booming and how! As of February 2013, Google Play is equipped with more than 800,000 applications out of which a major chunk comprises of completely free apps! And the quality of apps has been ever-improving all thanks to major players pumping money into making apps that look professional and act the part. Not just that, an equally proficient operating system and hardware that compliments the apps in all the right way is helping developers create some hi-class apps for users!

3. Multi-Tasking

Multi-tasking has always been a concern for iPhone users. The lack to navigate swiftly among apps and use multiple ones is a problem the iOS has always been riddled with. Unlike the iOS though, Android gives you the capability to run numerous apps at the same time flawlessly. Also, the ability to jump from one to another is a piece of cake, and clubbing them with each-other is something that Android does on its own! Joy, oh joy! Another upper hand that Android holds over the iOS is its ability to add widgets of several apps on a homescreen to view, offering the capability to get insights into many apps all at the same time. Apple fails to do that completely.

4. Connectivity

The biggest flaw in Apple has been the connectivity, or the sheer lack of it. Although equipped with Bluetooth, it proves to be completely useless to send across files. Lack of the new-age NFC is yet another drawback, but it doesn’t end there. The ability to send files across mail or a messenger like WhatsApp is highly restricted to images only. And that too, is a pain to attach and send. As opposed to all this, the Android camp is full of quirky features that’ll do the same and more! What Apple fails to understand is that lacking basic means of connectivity simply goes against the whole foundation of having a cellular phone!

5. Independence

Apple’s regime seems to be highly communist. No harm in that, but the lack of several amenities that can be easily catered to, yet aren’t, makes it a tough thing for Apple to sustain, and even more so when the heap of it keeps on compiling. The flexibility and the ability that Android offers to tweak one’s smartphone to his or her particular needs and serve diligently is something that Apple seems to lack, and the fashion would tend to trend in Apple’s case. The lack of a simplistic homescreen in itself proves to be a buzz-kill for a user, and in Apple’s case the phone tends to make you act according to its rules, and not yours. That’s a fatal flaw, and a flaw that won’t let Apple sustain itself in the market of today.
