If there’s one operating system that rocks the consumer market of technology today, this would be the one from Google and for sure, not a Windows 8 operating system. Google is the only company that was able to think of an operating system to beat Apple’s once-emerging operating system.
However, iOS remains to be second in line with Android. It also helps that there’s a giant electronics company that is also behind the success of the Android operating system. Samsung is the leading distributor of Android through its number of smartphone flagships that run the system. It appears that Google and Samsung continue to be having good business ties with Samsung up to this time.
The Highlights of iOS and Android Operating Systems
The Android operating system was released just a few years after the iOS was released. But, it enticed more of the consumers because it is more user-friendly and there are more applications available for the users to enjoy.
Aside from being user-friendly, the operating system was also more convenient because its interfaces are more flexible. It also helped that Google allowed several companies to purchase its rights and use it to run its smartphone lines.
Apple on the other hand, was the first ever to release a hip operating system to the market following Blackberry. The iOS system is elegant and appears to be suited for people in the corporate world. But, the updates of the operating system were intended to adjust to the needs of the consumers knowing that Android can offer more on that part.
The interface is secure and there’s no way that it can be changed by the user. Its applications also continue to gain good feedback from the users like FaceTime and Path as well.
Windows 8 Powered Phone is More Convenient
It was a little late for Microsoft to release its Windows 8 operating system for smartphones. It was already the time when Android started dominating the market and that only a few noticed the power of a Windows 8 phone.
However, according to recent reports, more consumers find the system more convenient and seem to exude in terms of practicality. Most of the users didn’t experience any lags that may interfere with any of the commands and applications.
Applications like Microsoft Office is already one of the default features and people from the corporate world love the idea that they can continue to work anywhere and anytime they want. It is a lot easier to continue unfinished documents and checking emails are a lot faster. One good reason for that is the pre-installed Dropbox application in the operating system.
However, some users complain about the limited applications that it can offer. It can never surpass the thousands of applications that Android can offer to its consumers. Also, they hate the fact that it lacks the ability to multitask as it has to close applications whenever another one is opened.
Furthermore, Microsoft continues to expect more from its operating system and that it will soon catch more of the consumers’ attention. Would you agree with Microsoft’s trust on its Windows 8 smartphone system or would you rather stick to an Android-powered one?
