Why buy an Android smartphone and not an iPhone? – Edition of 2014

An operating system with many more options

Buying an iPhone is buying a very expensive smartphone with a simple operating system that cannot be easily modified. If you want a smartphone for work, or you just have no idea about smartphones, maybe buying an iPhone is a good option. However, if you have already owned a smartphone for a few years, which is quite likely, perhaps the best option is to buy an Android smartphone. The number of options that these smartphones give users is much greater than the number of options that an iPhone gives. You just have to note that iOS still does not allow you to change the keyboard for another that has not been developed by Apple. While the ability to change the keyboard will be one of the novelties of iOS 8, Android has the ability to change the keyboard for years. Thanks to this, companies like SwiftKey have managed to gain great popularity, having the best keyboard available for Android. And in fact, the quality of these keyboards, superior to that of the keyboards installed as standard in smartphones, is what has made Apple finally have to allow users to change the keyboard on the iPhone and iPad. But this is just one of many examples. We can talk about the launcher, or we can talk about the widgets. Infinite possibilities on Android if we compare it with iOS.

Android L

Until now, Android was an operating system with many more possibilities than iOS, but the latter still had a much more minimalist and better-looking design. That changes with Android L. Google has completely changed the operating system with the new version, a new version that is already the one that will bring more news to Android in history. One of these novelties has to do with the design of the operating system, the Material Design they are talking about, in which each of the elements may have a height on the screen, so that there are different dimensions in the interface, and from that way you can give more or less importance to different elements. While Android L is going to be the version that includes the most news in the history of Android, iOS 8 is almost the same as iOS 7.

More smartphones, tablets and smart watches

Maybe you want to buy a tablet, or a smartphone, or a smart watch. The worst thing about buying an iPhone is that the tablet that you will have to buy will be an iPad and the watch that you will have to buy will be Apple’s, a watch that will possibly cost more than the smart watches available for Android. If you buy a Nexus, you can buy a Motorola smart watch, and a LG tablet. Nothing will happen, everyone can be synchronized without any problem. And if tomorrow you want to buy a Samsung tablet, or a Xiaomi smartphone, they will continue to be able to synchronize without problems. If you buy the Apple smartwatch, the iPhone and the iPad, and tomorrow Motorola is the company that launches the best smartwatch on the market, you will no longer be able to buy it, because you are not going to buy a smartphone and tablet with Android, after spending a lot of money on iPhone and iPad.

IPhones and iPads are of great quality. The problem is Apple

And, no one denies that the iPhone and iPad are of great quality. In fact, it is even understandable that for many users they are the best on the market. However, the problem is with Apple. Its philosophy that iOS cannot be synchronized with Android, and that it closes in its own operating system, creates problems for those who do not want to spend 1,500 euros. And, even those who have the money to spare, do not want Apple to have to impose that you have to buy all the devices of its brand.
