Reasons Why Android Need Not Fear the iPhone 5

The highly intuitive, fast and slim iPhone 5 — the latest offering from Apple, has been launched officially with much pomp and fanfare at Apple’s San Francisco headquarters. But what has yet not been demystified is whether iPhone 5 is the greatest of all cellphones made by Apple ever. But one thing is for sure that the latest offering from Apple is not a game changer. More so for smartphone manufacturers like Samsung that rely on Android, Google’s mobile operating system, there is nothing to fear. Here is why.

Reasons why android do not need to fear the apple iphone 5

Following On

The iPhone 5’s specifications, most notably features like 4-inch Display screen, an iSight 8-megapixel camera, new processors (with speeds twice as fast as iPhone4), greater internal storage options and customized features like LTE, have been there in Android enabled phones for months now. For example features like LTE, have not yet received widespread acceptance amongst users in major cellphone markets of the world. Therefore, even though it may be a big plus point for users and fans alike, to get to experience blazing navigational speeds, but for the rest LTE as a feature doesn’t evoke much sense of utility. As for Android enabled smartphone users, they have been relishing smooth performances of the dual or quad-core devices, intuitive display with large viewing icons, VoIP services of the multifarious mobile apps and a fast internet connection. Hence, the purported new features of the iPhone5 are nothing but a follow up of similar features existing already on Android phones.

Lower tech-savviness of iPhone5 vis-à-vis Android Smartphones

In spite of a litany of high-tech features claimed by Apple, iPhone5 lacks some basic tech-savvy features like messaging, chatting & surfing the net simultaneously. With ultra-fast browsing speeds, thanks largely to 3G & 4G spectrum, it is really disappointing for Apple fans not to be able to multitask on their iPhones. On the contrary, Android seems to have cashed in by incorporating some of the most high-tech features imaginable for smartphones. Specs like Google wallet that allow users to enjoy mobile payments, excellent support for high quality digital photography, quad-core processors and NVidia Tegra 3 chips have created a niche market for android smartphones. Additionally, one of the biggest plus points for Android users is the wide range of smartphone with varying degree of interesting features available with them.

Conclusion

Apple has dedicated more time publicizing the new camera features on the iPhone 5, in comparison to battery life and other crucial hardware details. Although aggressive advertising maneuvers garner greater consumer attention, but there is nothing spectacular in the current offering from Apple that may prompt an Android enabled Smartphone clambering to respond. Whereas, previously smartphone manufacturers went on a tizzy every time Apple released a new phone, but now it seems they are ready with their own, equally capable of garnering sufficient consumer attention.

Markets are already anticipating launch of the Droid RAZR Maxx from Motorola and other Android enabled smartphones. Moreover, the challenge is no longer restricted from Android alone, since there is the Nokia Lumia 920, along with the latest operating system from Windows Phone8 that are trying hard to gain market leverage and reduce the hegemony of Apple and Android considerably

    While both of them are good, apple’s each new launch have been pretty much the same as their previous versions. Not much of innovation going on.

    Android is better than Iphone, we can install more applications and we have more freedom. Of course Iphone has good devices but we can pay less when we buy Android smartphones.

    Android always need not fear Apple, because Apple sells the mobile with the brand name and the cost is high. But Android does in an efficient way with less cost.
