Clearly, the only reason iPhone users jailbreak their device is because of the “jail” Apple puts them into.I can’t imagine having a device I have no control over, a device that doesn’t give me the freedom I deserve. Even with a jailbroken iPhone with cydia installed, there are still limitations. Android is the definition of freedom because it simpley lets me do whatever I want to do without complications, and I just love it. Next to Android, I’ll definitely for Symbain OS before even considering iOS (if I ever will). If you’re considering getting an iPhone, I suggest you read this and you will be convinced that Android phones are a lot better in many ways.
1. Android is open source
Google made it a fair playground for developers and noobs and in the last few years, Android has dominated a large share of the smartphone market. I can develop an application in the corner of my room if I want to and to be honest, who wouldn’t want to do that? With an iPhone, you can only use what Apple approves and nothing more. Have you ever wondered why it took so long to have Google Chrome in App Store or why there’s no iOS version of Mozilla Firefox?
2. Android means freedom
It’s not just open source, it gives you what iOS will never offer you. You are free to do whatever you like with your device. There are tons of customizations available and Android OS is a platform that actually makes your device yours. Apple takes your money, gives you a phone and then hand down rules on what you must do with it? That sucks big time
3. Anyone can acquire an Android device
The latest Google Nexus tablet sells at $199 dollars! Can you believe that? Will there be a phone or tablet from Apple that’s so cheap? Not in a thousand years! The common man on the street can use a smartphone, or even a tablet running on Android OS. No matter how much you have, you can always get one. Samsung Galaxy Pocket costs about 18,000 Naira here in Nigeria.
4. iPhone is simply overrated
I’ve been there and I know what I speak. iPhone is just an overrated phone and all the hype isn’t just worth it. A cheaper Android device is more fun than the costly iPhone
5. Wide range of designs to choose from: That’s Android!
Well, iPhone can get boring with that similar look they all have. There are thousands of designs to choose from when it comes to Android phones and tablets. Samsung, Sony Ericsson, HTC, Huawei… the list goes on and on and I can choose to get an Android phone with QWERTY keyboard, a non-touchscreen device, a small smartphone that isn’t bogus. WTF! iPhone is boring and it all looks similar. I hate that.
Conclusion: If you really care about freedom, don’t put yourself in Apple’s jail with an iPhone or iPad. An Android device is a much better option.html
