My Personal Reasons Why I prefer an Android Phone over the iPhone

We all know that the ongoing conflict between two mobile phone giants Samsung (and other Android based phones) and Apple battle over sales dominance and personally it comes down to personal preference. 

Why an Android phone?

Here are several reasons why I prefer an Android phone over the more popular iPhone:

Google Services are much faster

I'm an avid user of Google services (Google Maps, GMail and Google+) and these services are a bit slow (particularly Google Maps) on the iOS environment on which I was disappointed. Having these services as native apps on the Android ecosystems makes it more faster and (in Google maps' case) more accurate.

Custom Launchers, Keyboards and Widgets

Another reason why I prefer an Android phone is that it allows customization of its launcher and keyboard (unlike in the iOS on which you have to resort on "jailbreaking" your which is cumbersome and sometimes can brick your phone when note done correctly). Widgets are valuable because they give you an at-a-glance look at lots of different kinds of information and quick access to valuable apps and configuration settings(see 15 Android widgets that will make iPhone users jealous).  Imagine checking your twitter by just swiping to the next window on which the twitter widget is running in background.


Here's a reason that focuses on practicality. Consider this scenario: if your iPhone rans out of battery power on an area on which electrical outlets are not accessible (outdoor travelling, etc.) you will go bonkers because you can change batteries! while most Android phones give you the ability to change batteries which makes more flexible.

Expandable Memory

Apple sells their product with three different memory capacities (16, 32 and 64GB) with each capacity having different prices ranges. an Android phone has only single price for each phone variant but it gives you the flexibility to increase your memory up to 64GB aside from the internal 16GB or 32GB memory (which can prevent bloating your phone and and possibly lag your phone due to too much memory load).

So there are the major reason why I choose an Android Phone over the more popular iPhone. This blog is nothing against Apple since I do like some of their products (the iPad and the iPod Touch) but when in comes to a mobile phone, an Android phone is my personal choice.
