We all know today what Android is but do we know why it’s so famous? Have we ever given this thought that why android today dominates smartphone market? Why operating systems like Symbian, Windows Mobile and Bada vanished due to Android's popularity? What benefits does android offers over others? Why more and more mobile phone makers are now only making Android phones? Is it Goggles vision or short sightedness of other Operating system vendors? Let us discuss android benefits.
Android And Its Benefits:
Some of the android benefits are mentioned below
• Open source: Android which runs on Linux at its core is an open source mobile operating system by Google Inc. and is licensed under Apache License. Android came into the picture in the year 2008 when the first-ever release of the first commercial phone on this platform. Ever since that in these ten years, there have been about 7 major releases and one is lined up to be released later this year. From Gingerbread to Oreo it’s a long success story for Android.
• Freedom to manufacturers: Android operating system gave a free hand to all its manufacturers to use there OS at the core and then create overlays for add-on features which they always want to offer to their customer through their brand of cellphone. This freedom has resulted in more success of Android because you name any manufacturer in the world today all of them use Android at their core but do add their own signature themes, options, overlays and features to differentiate and highlight the USP of their products.
• Android support of new technology and hardware: Moreover android also gives a free hand to manufacturers in using the most cutting edge advanced hardware’s available in the market and they do not have to worry about the fact that weather android operating system would support them or not. Also if a manufacturer is spending a lot of money on doing R&D for some hardware technology then also they feel assured that they can fit that technology with the Android OS because of its open-source nature and robust platform. That is the reason we see today starting from Flagship phones to mid-range to low range all have android at their core, whether it’s a cheap chipset or a premium one, Android runs on all.
• Android Developer Community the Largest in the world: Coming to developer’s point of view we know how rich googles play store which we see in our phones is, it’s the marketplace where we find all the applications that are available on Android. There is not a single mobile application today in a world which is not available on Android. Earlier it used to be the iOS market only but now play store is so famous that there are applications which are only available there but not in other marketplaces. Again this turnaround is just because of androids popularity and its penetration in every corner of world weather urban-rural.
• Anyone can be Android Developer: You create an app and let play store approve it and your app is on the market, no hidden fees if your app is for free. You can earn money by having ads on your apps and more the downloads are more your earning will be. The Android SDK and application API’s are freely available by Google and you just need to have a google account and you can start making applications using Google cloud tools to make your first android application.
These are some the main reasons why android gained so much popularity and in coming future the way Android is racing ahead its popularity is going to get bigger and its competitors will become fewer and fewer in number until they also do something revolutionary as Android did.
The very first iPhone went on sale in 2007. Since then, the brand has evolved to become, unarguably, the best smartphone brand on the market. Yes, the first Apple phone was released in the same year that Leona Lewis' A Moment Like This was topping charts here in the UK and the Will Smith-starring In Pursuit of Happyness was making cinema goers cry over in the United States. Over the space of ten years, the iPhone has gone through a whole lot of development and modifications. Despite the fact that it is the most expensive brand of smartphones, it is still one of the most sought after. This is largely due to the mind blowing quality of the smartphone.
The latest in the line of iPhones, the iPhone 7 was launched in September last year and it had so many preorders that some of the users did not get their phones till January or February this year. And this is despite the fact that the iPhone 7 was on sale for £790 while its upgrade, iPhone Plus cost just a little under a thousand pounds. iPhone 7 has basically the same features as the previous two models with just a few differences. The model features a camera with better qualities than previous models. Also, the phone runs on an amazingly fast processor. iPhone 7 is easily 200 times faster than the first iPhone. Now, let us compare the progress of the iPhone in relation to the new iPhone 7. I will factor in the important iPhone metrics and features like display quality, camera sharpness, processor speed, battery life and sleekness.
One of the selling point of Apple devices is their thinness and iPhones are no exception. Apple has grown so good at this that they are often criticized for focusing on physical aesthetics than on functional attributes. However, the new iPhone 7 is approximately half the size of its predecessors iPhone 3GS and iPhone 6. It measures around 7 millimetres.
iPhones usually last an average of 12 hours. According to Apple, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have a stronger battery than other versions of the iPhone. They are reported to last two hours longer than last year's models. However, the new iPhones do not have as much talk time as earlier versions. The quad core design used for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus makes the battery last longer if used for tasks like web browsing rather than making phone calls.
Although many users complain about the battery life of iPhones, one feature of the smartphone that gets a round of applause from all quarters is the sharp quality of the camera. This aspect has been a major focus of Apple with every product launch and the iPhone has what is arguably the most popular camera in the world. If a camera has a high megapixel, you will be able to zoom your pictures to high resolutions and you will not have to worry about ruining the quality. The iPhone also pays special attention to another important aspect of photography: the size of the aperture. The aperture determines the amount of light that enters the lens and this allows for quality pictures especially in outdoors or low light conditions. The iPhone 7 has the largest aperture of all iPhones and it is an improvement from iPhone 6S' f/2.2 to an upgraded f/1.8. In relation to apertures, a smaller f-stop signifies a larger aperture size.
The iPhone usually has Pixels Per Inch (PPI) of screen range of 200. This enables the iPhone to have a better display quality than its Android counterparts. Its greatest competition in this aspect is Samsung Galaxy S7. The Samsung smartphones have a PPI of 534. Apple developed the iPhone 7 with 326 PPI and they argued that its display is too shaft for the human eyes to observe any additional improvements. The counter argument to this is that the new OLED display used by Samsung is more important than the pixel quality emphasized by Apple. The display of iPhones has not evolved as much as its other features.
There are a few brands that beat iPhones in this regard. Smartphones made by Samsung, HTC and LG have been running on 3 gigabytes of RAM at the same time that Apple smartphones were running on 1 gigabyte. A phone's RAM determines its speed of operation. When a smartphone starts running out of RAM, it lags. Other times, programmes that are minimized will have to reload when reopened by the user. This is because when a smartphone starts running out of RAM, it cannot simultaneously run more than two or three programmes. Therefore, it dumps or closes older programmes in exchange for keeping new ones open. However, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus has the largest RAM of all iPhones to date. So when you purchase one of thee babies, there is no reason for your game of Pokemon GO to reload when you minimize it to open a text message. The evolutionay chain of iPhones is usually measured from first generation to tenth generation. Each generation is marked by the launch of a new model of iPhone.
First Generation (iPhone 1)
The very first iPhone model was launched as a three in one device. It was a mobile web browser, a mobile phone and a touchscreen iPod. At the time, its 3.5 inch screen had a resolution of 320 x 480 megapixels and it was one of best smartphone displays available at the time.
iPhone 3G (Second Generation)
This iPhone model was launched with 3G in its name because it came with high speed connectivity. Its shape was also thinner than the earlier iPhone 1.
iPhone 3GS (Third Generation)
It was launched in June, 2009. It had a 3.2 megapixel camera and it was the first iPhone that could capture pictures as well as record videos. It also had a voice control system that predated Siri.
iPhone 4 (Fourth Generation)
This line was launched in 2010. It was a major step up from the 3GS. It had a high resolution retina display and an upgraded camera with 5 megapixels.
iPhone 6/6 Plus (eighth generation)
Skip five years and four generations and we have the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The phones had a display size of 4.7 inches and a high 1334 x 750 resolution. The result was a crystal clear display that was praised by reviewers. At the same time, the iOS 8 was launched by Apple and it obviously featured functions that iOS 7 did not. That was the same year that Apple announced that they had the highest number of pre orders in a single night.
iPhone SE (Tenth Generation)
The latest generation of iPhones was launched in March. It adopted a number of iPhone 5S features and put these on the market. It has a 12 megapixels rear facing camera and 64 gigabytes of storage. It also operates with the iOS 9 software.
