Top 10 Android Features that the iPhone does Not Have

Top 10 Android Features that the iPhone does Not Have

There are quite a few solid reasons that the Android and iOS are at the top of the list as far as smartphone operating systems are concerned. They both have their own uniqueness and if you have decided to go for Android instead of the iPhone then make sure you are making use of the features listed in this article.

10. Alternate Keyboards

We all know that typing on a little tiny keyboard is not all that fun. Fortunately, Android users have the choice to install other keyboards and use the one they are the most comfortable with.

9. Automation

This is a very useful feature and the powerful application that lets you make use of it is called “Tasker”. This transforms your smartphone into a superphone. Tasker enables you to turn certain settings for particular applications ON and OFF according to the location and time of the day.

8. Custom Home Launchers

If you have jailbroken your iPhone, you have plenty of options while customizing your home screen. However, using third party software, you get to a whole new level of customization with Android.

7. Widgets

Yes, they do take up a bit of space on the display, but there is nothing like having a weather widget conveniently showing you the weather right on the home screen or a music widget telling you about the track that is currently playing.

6. Removable Storage and Battery

If you run out of built-in memory on your iPhone, then there is really not much you can do besides deleting some stuff. If you have an Android phone, however, you just pop in a new SD memory card and have acres of space.

5. Wireless App Installation

It is not an easy job to look through a tiny app store and find just the application you are looking for. Using third party software with Android, all you have to do is click the install button and the app will be on your phone.

4. Custom ROMs

One of the coolest things about owning an Android phone is that the operating system is open source. This means that there is no one correct version of the operating system. You can change the code and tweak it according to your liking.

3. Controlling Your Phone from Your Computer

Using this feature, you can actually control your phone wirelessly using your computer. Whether it is the sending of text messages or browsing of the web you want to do, you can do it from your PC.

2. Flash

It does not matter what you think about Flash. It exists everywhere and is probably here to stay. So if you want to access websites made in Flash, or watch videos that require Flash to run or play Flash games, it can all be done right on your Android.

1. True App Integration

Google Voice is now available for the iPhone, but the experience will never be the same as that of Android. The Android version of Voice integrates itself with the default dialer of the phone. Unlike the iPhone, you don’t have to navigate to the dialer yourself.
