Smartphone Operating Systems by Mind Map: Smartphone Operating Systems

1. Android

1.1. Pros

1.1.1. Most Android Smartphones have an option of a removable battery which allows all its users to buy an extra battery if the old one doesn’t work for some reason. If the internal memory of the phone is too small for the user, an expandable memory option is always there. A SD card can be bought for more memory. Virtual typing is the new IN THING. It’s fun for some people and a problem for some. Since the concept of virtual typing or ‘Touch Screen’ is still new, many Android phones are still available with a typing keyboard.

1.1.2. The Android Market has over 200,000 apps right now and many more are added on a daily basis. It’s very simple to install and download apps from the Android Market. If the user is bored of an app, he/she can remove it from the phone very easily, the procedures are not long and time consuming like other phones.

1.2. Cons

1.2.1. A big disadvantage with most Android phones is the small screen size. This con makes some competitors like the Apple iPhone a better option. The choice of phones available with physical keyboards is very minimum and most consumers are not satisfied with the poor image quality of mobile camera.

1.2.2. The Apple App Store is still offering better and a large number of apps than the present Android Market. This disadvantage can prove very costly for Android who’s trying very hard to give tough competition to Apple. Plus many useful apps in Android Market are not free which again means spending money buying them.
