Also this is widely supported that many developers use. You can get all the updates in front of you when turn on your phone.

This is where Android has a huge advantage over the iPhone.

On Android phones you can easily arrange only a few selected Apps to give your home screen a clean look and also show off the background. This is not possible with iPhone.

7.      Alternate App Markets

Android has the ability to install different applications from different markets. This is beneficial for the users as different markets mean more competition and so they offer discounts.

iPhone has a definitely amazing keyboard than Android but what is great about Android is you can customize the keyboard too along with the system. You can get better thumb typing options on Android phones. Android has alternative keyboard called Swype keyboard that changes the way you type on a touch screen phone.

9.      Wide selection of devices/carriers

iPhone is an excellent phone with good build quality. But Android is open to various top end manufacturers that have a wide range of high quality and well designed selection. iPhone has two major carriers out of the four but they have high priced monthly plans. But if you want to pay less for your plans then Android is a must have for you.

  1. Google Maps Navigation. If you largely rely on navigation system then you must most definitely need an Android phone. The Google Navigation app is an amazing navigation on Android that is not available on most of its rivals systems. What’s best about it is free!
