I’m switching to the iPhone because … (insert your own dubious reason)

by: Simon HillSeptember 24, 2012
Every time a new version of the iPhone hits the market we get a slew of articles from tech writers explaining why they are switching to Apple’s latest wonderphone and leaving the fractured hell that is Android behind. Obviously this kind of article is classic clickbait and fair enough, writers want people to read their articles and it’s their job to deliver eyeballs. The fact that most of them are full of fatuous reasoning and lack any real substance is what tends to aggravate the reading public.

Apple’s iPhone 5 fails to impress [Poll]

by: Simon HillSeptember 12, 2012
Well Apple has announced the new iPhone 5. It pretty much conforms to the rumors that were flying around before the San Francisco event kicked off. It’s certainly an improvement on the iPhone 4S, but is it enough to tempt you away from Android? In a word – no!

Nielsen: Android continues to grow in the U.S., teenage smartphone ownership on the rise also

by: AdrianSeptember 11, 2012
You can always count on Nielsen to come up with the most interesting tech-related reports, and its latest such study is no exception to that rule. After seeing Android comfortably leading in the U.S. smartphone OS share back in May, the company's survey conducted in July revealed even more impressive numbers for Google’s mobile operating system.

One rotten Apple spoils the smartphone market

by: Simon HillAugust 30, 2012
Apple is the most valuable company in the world, and yet it is using patent litigation to bully its competitors. Are the huge profits justified? Can Apple stay on top as goodwill for the company dissolves?

Google services on Android vs. third-party services on iOS

by: Simon HillAugust 21, 2012
As Apple strips Google services out of iOS and adopts more third-party options, Google continues to integrate its own services more on Android. Does it make sense for us, or is petty squabbling getting in the way of the best user experience?

Flurry’s Android vs iOS app revenue report called into question

by: LucianJune 20, 2012

I have nothing against stats that put Android in a bad light. If anything, I’m usually glad they appear, because they highlight some problems that I had raised long before, hopefully prompting Google to do something and improve Android in that specific respect.

What I really can’t stand, though, is when statistical data presented as accurate is downright misleading. Like my all-time-favorites, the Net Marketshare guys, who keep publishing misleading data, over and over again, even though it’s a clearly inaccurate description of the mobile market share that they present as accurate.

But I think that soon I’ll have some new favorites, the [...]

Nielsen: US smartphone owners now a majority, Android leads comfortably

by: AdrianMay 9, 2012

Yes, boys and girls, it has finally happened! For the first time in history, most U.S. mobile subscribers now own a smartphone. At least that’s what we can make of Nielsen’s latest report, which says that, in March 2012, 50.4% of all American mobile users had a smartphone in their possession. That leaves a 49.6% share for basic phones (or dumbphones, as we sometimes call them), which is not half bad, if you think about how wildly popular Android and iOS devices are.

Android is still the dominating force in the United States, with a total of 48.5% of all smartphones running Google’s OS. Apple’s iOS is second, with a 32% market share, while RIM, Windows Mobile, and [...]

iOS vs Android: Why Android is the better option, according to one Youtuber [video]

by: Ankit BanerjeeApril 26, 2012

It feels like the Android vs iOS debate has been going on for centuries, even though both just arrived on the scene back in 2007. Lot of people fall on both sides of the fence and the “fights” have certainly been numerous and loud, ranging from intellectual debates to random name-calling.

One Youtube user wicked4u2c has taken the time to release a series of videos talking about the advantages the Android OS and devices have over Apple’s iOS and the iPhone. There are 4 videos so far, of a 6-part series, and each is of quite a decent length, so the guy obviously put in a lot of time and effort into making them. The first video can be considered an [...]

Android achieves liftoff in the world’s biggest market

by: AdrianApril 11, 2012

If there was still anyone that doubted Android’s booming success in the global smartphone market, the most recent report from Analysis International should once and for all establish the mobile operating system’s dominance. According to said report, Google’s Android operating system is the most popular smartphone platform in China, leading the race against Symbian and iOS with an almost unbelievable 68.4% sales share in Q4 2011.

With a population of around 1.3 billion and an estimated 990 million mobile phone subscribers, China is the world’s largest mobile phone market, so you can imagine this latest report will come as one of the best news that the Android received [...]

How can Android tablets dominate the tablet market?

by: Darcy LaCouveeApril 5, 2012

Whether we like it or not, Apple’s iPad has been the star of the tablet market and has overshadowed Android tablets in pretty much every aspect and area. But is this to remain? Let’s take a closer look.

While we are still in the early stages of 2012, all signs are pointing to Apple’s latest product becoming the new star of the market again. After all, sales figures don’t lie, right?

However, while no apparent leader has risen from the pack of Android tablets, there are many encouraging signs. First of all, competition is a good thing. While no one tablet alone has the means to dethrone the iPad’s impressive sales figures, collectively, they [...]
