Date Added: Aug 02, 2011
|As Android is an open platform it is not limited to a certain cellphone manufacturing company, you are bound to find differences in the features and performance of every Android enabled device.
Following are some key considerations you should keep in mind when you choose your next Android based Smartphone:
1) Choosing the right carrier: Almost all the top mobile carriers offer Android phones along with the purchase of their connection. On the first look, the deal may look very lucrative with cheap charges from carrier for calls, texts, data plans etc. coming along with your choicest Smartphone but; its of no use if the carrier does not have coverage where you live or travel very often. So, you need to be very careful at this and do a thorough research of the availability and coverage of the chosen carrier at required places.
2) Budget considerations:
The problem arises especially when you are a bit tight on budget for an Android based phone. There are a number of cheap Android phones available in the market due to increasing popularity of this OS. But on the darker side, many of these phones are cheap due to inferior hardware and configuration which may not be able to do justice with the demanding OS i.e. the phone may hang often or may work slowly.
In order to cope up with the increasing competition in the Smartphone platforms industry in terms of features, various upgrades to this OS are introduced from time to time. You should thoroughly check the current version of Android that the phone has and the upgradeability of OS to higher versions.
Due to the open nature of Android platform, it is being introduced by almost every manufacturer with slight modifications in look, working and interface. For example, Samsung has a TouchWiz interface in its Android phones which lets you add widgets and facilitates direct access to various phone features and online resources while Motorola has a MotoBlur feature which delivers constant updates to you related to your social networking profiles. So you should choose the phone whose features suit you best as per your requirements.
