People have a love n hate based relationship with their cellphones. It is inevitable. Some fellas like to maintain the hate curve, which goes on for years, despite of different cellphones. As for me, I have had a rough time with the iPhone 4. Yes, I belonged to the Antenna Gate generation. Top if off with a proximity sensor error, things just didn’t cut it for me.
I quit using the Apple communication brick after turning it 3 times, without any improvement in its glitches. On the contrary, I maintained a brief eye contact with Android powered smartphones. Some of them are really good; some of them are bad, as if walking live on steroids.
Good thing about Android is that it moves rapidly. Just a short time period and we’ve already seen hundreds of Android OS based smartphones and different versions of the OS as well. Plus, there’s this cool story about the addition of near field communication in Android 2.3. But I think that the developers still need to learn a lot, to come up with something flawless and impressive.
The rapid smartphone release cycle itself is demeaning the Android platform value. It’s like, you start loving this Smartphone and the next few days roll out a newer version of it. You’re in the middle of a fix, never knowing which one to go for. That’s probably the main reason that Android is trying to level against the iPhone through the app department. Yes, Google’s policies are pretty lenient, so developers feel comfy while creating something for their Android buddies.
Plus, Google does know that the instant release cycle thing has its disadvantages. Andy Rubin, Android Project Leader said it himself; “I’d like to see just two releases on yearly basis.” So what’s the best way of getting a flawless Android smartphone? Well, keep your eyes open for specs. Wait for a while, find a nice smartphone, use it and then turn it in for another one.
