Why Should You Choose Android Over iPhone?

Apple’s CEO, Timothy Cook, was indeed successful on putting their iDevices and their iOS 7 on top of the headlines. The blogosphere couldn’t even breathe of all the news talking about all the bits and bites of Apple. Some are good news; some are not, but that’s just the way it goes, isn’t it?

Not to pile on the good news; not even on bad ones either, but I guess somehow Android deserves the limelight despite of what Apple offers. Here in this post entails a few reasons on why you should choose Android over iPhone—and to justify which smartphone really is smarter.

#1: Screenshot made easier

How do you take a screenshot on your phones? Well, when you are using an Android phone, which is not either the Galaxy S3, S4, Note 2, or Note 3, you’ll pretty much have to press and hold the menu and the power button simultaneously—and this is somewhat likely how you do it with iPhone. However, when you use the aforementioned high-end Android phones, you can just actually snag a photo of your screen by using its feature Palm Swipe. In this way, you just have to slide your hand in a “chopping” position from left to right across the screen, and then you will hear the shutter sound. See? It’s pretty much easy.

#2: Convertible Phone to USB drive

Wait, what? Indeed. Stating the obvious here, your Android device has an inclusion of micro-SD memory card slot—this is what Apple’s iDevices lack. And so, you’ll definitely have fun filling it up with files and whatnot. And you can even use it like a USB flash drive. Just connect it to your computer using a USB data cable and store or swap files on your device so long as it can accommodate the file size. Can your iPhone do that?

#3: A shortcut it is

What are smartphones for? What are gadgets for? I can’t stress this enough; they are made to help people carry out their everyday activities in a less complex way. Not to mention, they keep us socially connected in every way. And knowing that Android holds the throne of being the most customizable of all mobiles, tweaking has never been more of a surprise. This trick I’m about to say will save us time and a lot of swipe actions. Did you know that you can actually make a shortcut of phone numbers on your home screen? You just have to hold down your home screen until a menu pops up, choose Shortcuts, select Contact, and choose your favorite contact or the person you mostly interact with. So, the next time you have to call him or her, you don’t have to dig your phone book just to get in touch with him or her. All you need is a simple tap and… oh! Hello!

No matter how much you tap each Android phone and iPhone just to defend which phone gets the throne, each launch of the two will be always going to kill the other—leaving you hard-pressed to know which one really deserves it. But it’s all apparent that Android is the most flexible of the two. Sure enough, iPhone can do some of the tricks, too, but you still have a need to have your iPhone jailbroken so as to do so. Now, who do you think deserves the limelight?
