Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS are giant rivals in the mobile device race. According to the recent survey, Google’s Android has already overtaken iOS and will even make a blast this year. Android apps are serving different brands of mobile phones such as Samsung, LG Nexus series, HTC and many more while iOS remains exclusive to Apple app. One of the biggest advantages of Android phones is their
variety of choices – in terms of compatible applications. Consumers can also buy an Android phone from $200 up to thousands of dollars depending on the specifications that would suit their budget – but it doesn’t mean that the cheaper brand is inferior – just limited in features. In Asian countries, Android phones are more usable because of the dual sim-card feature. Being able to choose the same network provider with the receiving party can lessen the prepaid-load or phone bill.
