We know that iPhone is a “must have” for many people, but we are even more sure that there are much more Android users around there. Actually, we – Android lovers – can give anyone 10 great reasons why Android is better than an iPhone .
As long as we are not here only to compete, keep reading this post till the end and learn few tricks and apps and start optimizing your Android right now.
THAT’S WHY ANDROID IS BETTER
We have much more hardware options!
And that means that you can choose which one fits better to you. There are no limitations while buying your new smart phone. Until today Apple has launched 8 types of phone against almost 200 smartphones that uses Android. There’s no comparison when talking about hardware, not mentioning that each smartphone has a different layout, different from the Fruit, that all of them are almost the same.
Install whatever you want…
Sometimes this is a negative point, because this makes the mobile phone more open to viruses, but c’mon! You can have any app you want and most of them absolutely for free. There’s no one saying “No” to new apps and controlling what you will have or not.
Widgets simplify our life
To understand the difference between Widget and App, a Widget is a shortcut or a window that requires frequent update like a calendar or the weather information. So, the widget works alone, updating the needed information and it’s always reachable, saving you time. This way you don’t have to open an App, but simply the Widget, to check quick informations on your mobile phone.
Transfer Files via Bluetooth
If you didn’t know this yet, we must tell you that on iPhone the Bluetooth has only one function: to pair with others gadgets or accessories. With an iPhone you can’t simply send a photo to another person, or music. But with Android you can! You have the freedom to send your files in the best and easiest way you want. Bluetooth is one of them!
Your smartphone with your style
Android is the only platform that let’s you personalize your smartphone the way you want. You can change almost everything, from color to items. If you have an Android and didn’t know this, well, the Android users must use ROMs to change the complete interface of it. The most populars are CyanogenMod and MIUI.
Transfer your files in a very easy way
With an iPhone, you must have iTunes to transfer the datas from your computer to your telephone. Or iPhoto to import your phone’s photos. There’s no easy way and even the biggest Apple fan gets angry while loosing files with those automatics sync. Well, this never will happen with Android. You can transfer your files the way you think it’s better and enjoy 100% of every media you have. There are no limitations, just simplicity!
Any sound can became a ringtone
If you want to make your dog’s bark a ringtone, you can. Or that mp3 music you love, you can. Android is very flexible and you can change your ringtone for any sound you want within only few steps. No difficulty, no money spent, no nothing. Want to know this function on iPhone? Well, if you don’t want the standard sounds, you have to go to the store and buy a new one. With some luck your favorite music will be there.
Your Android will work a little like a normal Computer
There aren’t limitations while multitasking. And when we talk about multitask, we want to say several apps working at the same time, while your widgets are updating, the new updates are coming and on. iPhone is a little more like this after the 4th edition, but it’s not like an Android, that works a little more like your personal computer.
Get a better keyboard, if you don’t like Android’s one.
Contrary to an iPhone, which you must stick to the original keyboard, with Android you don’t have to. Typing in a mobile phone is a great problem since the firsts models. And with Android may not be different and your fingers don’t fit the original keyboard. So, if this happens to you, feel confortable to download another keyboards and enjoy your phone at most!
And the best for the last: it’s cheaper.
Not only cheaper, but with a great variety. It’s almost hard to believe that this simple and better platform is cheaper. We can show in our fingers how many Androids smartphones are more expensive than an iPhone. Maybe one and another, but all the others are more accessible than a hard to deal iPhone.
