Top 10 reasons to choose Android over iPhone

Top ten reasons that screams you should choose Android over IPhone

1. Storage:  All of the latest high-end Android phones, including all the major Samsung phones, the HTC M9 and the LG G4, start with a more-reasonable 32GB of internal storage.
The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are priced like high-end phones, but that doesn’t stop Apple from skimping on storage. For starting prices of Rs. 44,000 and Rs. 50,000 approx respectively, you get just 16GB of internal memory. After you deduct 1.3GB for iOS , you have almost no space for the 12-MP pictures you’ll take, the 4K videos you’ll shoot, your music collection or iTunes movies, which can take up between 1 and 3GB depending on resolution.

2. Freedom: The app store for apple is restrictive and tightly controlled. Whereas, the Google App Store is generalized, marked into many categories, You can also take any APK file you download and sideload it on your own. But its not possible in IPhones.

3. Customization: My favorite part about Android phones — customization. If you enjoy being able to customize your phone, then Android is the way to go. Don’t like the standard keyboard that Android comes with? Easy! Just download a third-party keyboard app that replaces the stock one. Don’t like the entire launcher that runs your phone? Download a new launcher. Want to make your phone have a layout exactly like a Windows phone? Yep, you can do that, too. 

4. Removable battery : Not all, but many of the Android phones out there will have a removable battery that you yourself can take out and replace or service to your liking. After you use a phone a while, the battery will start to lose its original capacity. It’s not a matter of if the battery life starts getting bad, it’s a matter of when. It’s just how batteries work.

 So, say you’ve had an iPhone for a long time and it doesn’t last long at all before it needs a charge. Well, too bad, you’ll have to go to the Apple store or some store that can service it or you’ll just have to live with it. 

5. A back button : Android’s back button provides a really simple and helpful way to return to a previous screen no matter where you are. The button even works across apps.
On the iPhone 6s, you can use only app-specific navigation or hit the home button to end up back on the home screen. That’s a lot more swipes and taps that waste your time and tire your fingers.

6. Screen Resolution: Today’s iPhone 6s Plus is still stuck at 1920 x 1080 while the mainstream 6s clocks in at a mere 1334 x 750. By contrast, the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium has a 4K (3840 x 2160) display and several mainstream Android phones offer 2560 x 1440 screens, which makes them a lot sharper for high-res video viewing, reading and gaming.

7. Universal Sharing: On Android, you can share to any service whose app you have installed: Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or anything you’ve installed. Try that in IPhone.

8. Expandable memory: Memory card slot is not available in apple whereas a card slot is available for android phones. The majority of Android phones offer expandable memory. That means you can pop open the back cover or a slot on the side of your phone and put in a micro SD card which then becomes added memory to your phone. What does Apple do? Well, they’ve never offered expandable memory for the iPhone. 

9. Widgets: : On the iPhone, you can put a few select widgets in your notification drawer, with Android, you can choose from thousands of widgets that live on your home or lock screens and provide everything from music playback to weather and note-taking. 

10. Split screen: If you want to multitask on your phone, you want an Android phone from Samsung or LG. Both of those brands let you split your screen between two apps, allowing you to, for example, look at the company Web page in one window while you reply to your boss’s email in another. Google hasn’t built multiwindow mode into the Core OS yet; it is adding that ability in the next version, called Android M. Apple is adding a split-screen view in iOS 9, but only for tablets, not phones.
