Why You Should Choose Android for Your Mobile Ecosystem

The world of the cell phone has rapidly evolved into the world of the smartphone, where new features and advancements are made available with each iteration. When it comes to selecting your smartphone, you have the choice of one of two ecosystems, and it’s probably the most important decision that needs to be made.

Apple created the iPhone, which essentially transformed the cellphone into a handheld computer. Their devices have a certain prestige, which starts with the retail package and extends to the device itself. This results in higher prices. The operating system is refined with regular updates, and the user interface is friendly and intuitive. However, regardless of everything mentioned, I would still implore you to select an Android-based device, simply due to their pricing and the various options available according to everyone’s budget.

OUT OF POCKET COST

You can buy a new iPhone X from upwards of $999, or you could purchase something that is a bit more budget-friendly. Apple’s recent acknowledgment that they slow down old device intentionally has caused them enough bad publicity for some time to come. It is true that iPhones retain their resale values as compared to Android-based devices, but at what cost?

The lovely thing about Android is that there is something for everyone. You are able to purchase a mid-tier phone for $300, or go for a flagship, such as the newly announced Huawei P20. You could get the bare minimum for a pleasurable experience, or get the latest and greatest for less than something which came out last year.

IN-HOUSE PROCESSOR

It is true that the processors developed in-house by Apple outpace the top flagships. However, they are not the only one to develop their processors in-house. Huawei has also developed their processor in-house, with built-in artificial intelligence that improves the overall performance of your phone the longer you use it, leading to better performance and battery life.

ANDROID AND GOOGLE

The Android operating system is based on Linux and is backed by Google. Since the software is based off an open source operating system, there is a large amount of development constantly ongoing, and support is available.

Google does a great job of constantly updating Android, and has created the Android One program, which offers the purest Android experience with regular security updates. The goal of Android One when it launched in 2014 was to allow people to get online while being cost-effective, allowing more people to have internet access.

SIMPLE YET EFFECTIVE FEATURES

Android phones offer features and functions in previous iterations which are just now becoming available on iPhones, such as wireless charging, expandable storage, and dual sims. Having the ability to control household devices with an IR Blaster offers convenience, ease, and additional functionality.

CONFIGURATION IS KEY

Android phones offer greater configuration options as compared to iPhones. You have the ability to choose how you want the phone to operate, instead of having to learn to operate it. If you don’t like how you access your applications, you have the ability to change the launcher.

Android devices are dependent on their manufacturers for official updates. In the event that your device is no longer supported, you can always turn to the online community for custom operating systems, which is also known as a ROM. My first device allowed me to tinker around with it and keep it functional for much longer than it should have survived. In fact, it’s still functional due to the online community and their support. You have the ability to change the boot screen to a graphic of your choice, and to remap hardware buttons according to personal preferences. McDonald’s loves for its consumers to have it their way, and so do Android and Google.

LIMITED THIRD PARTY SUPPORT

Apple devices have limited third party hardware devices that function within their ecosystem as compared to Android. When it comes to purchasing additional hardware, such as a charger or a smartwatch, you just have a larger selection when compared to Apple.

THE GOOGLE PLAY STORE VS THE APP STORE

When you buy a smartphone, you will be investing in an ecosystem, and unfortunately will not be able to transfer your applications and games over to the other. The Google Play Store, which houses the applications for Android, houses a larger selection of games and applications than the App Store. Cost is also an advantage, since applications are often cheaper from the Play Store when compared to its counterpart. Cloud storage is cheaper, greater, and more secure than that of Apple’s service offerings. In fact, everything is just more expense when it comes to Apple, including battery replacements and accessories.

THE FATAL FLAW OF THE SMARTPHONE

Regardless of which ecosystem you select, one thing can be said for sure: a smartphone has become more than a phone. Even with the ability to quickly charge your device, you will come across scenarios where you’re running low on power, which is more often than you would think with iPhones. This vital and crucial flaw has made having home-based telephone services such as AT&T home phone services, a necessity in the event of an emergency, especially if you have children.

GOOGLE INTEGRATION

On a closing note, the integration of Google services is better rooted in Android. After all, it was developed by Google. Google Services are also available for iPhones, however will never be integrated as they are in Android. A fairly large number of individuals already have a Gmail account, therefore all your information is stored in one location, making your life simply more convenient.
