Smartphones are ruling the world. Everyone is having a phone of their own these days. Windows and Android are the options we have to choose among while purchasing a phone leaving aside the most popular and costly phones like Apple and Blackberry, as they are usually considered to be rich man’s phones. While android is the most popular handset, windows also offers great features and both have their limits. So here I provide you the comparison of these two, so that this article may be helpful to you while you plan to buy a new phone or even to get an idea about android and windows features. Let’s see the fight between Android vs Windows.
ANDROID- Being the most popular handset, android has the highest market share, but that doesn’t mean in anyway that android is the best. There are dozens of models in android handsets to buy that you can select among the various options available choosing among the various high quality brands like Samsung, Sony, Motorolla, Google Nexus, Asus and many more.
WINDOWS- Windows handsets may be from few brands, but those brands are of high end quality which rarely make cheap hardware. So Windows may not have many options to choose from but the best are here too. Windows handsets are from brands like Nokia, HTC, Samsung and all.
ANDROID- At the last count there were around 7,00,000 apps on Google play store which will with no doubt put the Android on the top in this case.
WINDOWS- The windows phone store is still hovering around 1,00,000 apps even it is almost two years past the release of the Windows OS
But we cannot say here that android is the best as there is more vulnerability in the android platform as it is prone to rogue apps and Windows store is safe in that aspect.
3. Upgrades and Versions
ANDROID- Android is an open platform OS to an extent which allows the handsets to use older versions of Android in order to meet their lower hardware specifications. In some cases, many handsets don’t even get the software updates.
WINDOWS- Microsoft endeavours Windows phone 8 but it is dependent on the hardware makers passing on upgrades to end users.
4. Speed, Stability, Features
ANDROID- Android’s openness is a backlog to it in this area as well. As there are plenty of handset makers under platform Android, it has both cheap variety of phone which offer no features and high end phone which has high quality features. There is a lot of speed, stability and features in the Android world and that’s why I advise to ultimately look for reviews while choose to buy a phone.
WINDOWS- It is stable and also have a couple of extra features like Rooms and Kids corner which will make the phone unique and also kids friendly.
And being a Windows phone user since the last three years, here are a few things that I need to share with you in this article. Windows phone is ultimate in looks and its home screen is very rich compared to that of an Android phone. And the People app in Windows phone is my favourite that it actually allows you to synchronise the contacts of your SIM with the various other apps like FB, Skype and many others which allows you to have a glimpse of the person’s activities at one place. And I don’t think that android is good in these things.
So have you come to a conclusion of which phone to buy.
