Android OS Smartphones and iPhone IOS Smartphones are used by high-fraction of Smartphone Users. Android vs iPhone in Nigeria who is winning?, well some people believe that Android OS Smartphones are outselling the iPhone IOS smartphones in Nigeria’s mobile market. In today’s post we are going to discuss the reason why it is so but before we start saying one or two things about it let’s say something about the “duo”.
SOME DETAILS ABOUT ANDROID OS SMARTPHONES
Android phones are the most used smartphones in Nigeria today and simply because of its simplicity and easy user interface, everybody really knows how to operate an android phone without been guided even to a primary school student, I was surprised when my 5 years old brother was operating my Android smartphone like a pro I was surprised and amazed when I saw him operating him and I had no option than to let him keep operating it. Android Phones are supported by reputable companies such as Tecno, Samsung, HTC, Infinix, InnJoo and many of them, they have really helped in moving the Android usage upward, they have made different customization on each of their manufactured smartphones to what people really needs and different processing and storage capacity. Android OS versions was recently updated from 5.0, 5.1 (Lollipop) to 6.0 (Marshmallow) which is the current version as of now which many Android Smartphones have started receiving updates from each of their manufacturers. I can’t forget the Huge organization that contributes to the high productivity of Android OS Phones which is Google, Google really is the backbone of all android phones because they provide Applications for download in .APK format for every Android smartphones, they bring their services into Android Phones by pre-installing all Google related applications and they give about scheduled security updates to help prevent viruses or malwares that can destroy the device if not taken care of.
SOME DETAILS IPHONE IOS SMARTPHONES
iPhone IOS smartphones are owned by Apple which is a well reputable company in the whole world, Apple headquarters is based in US , iPhone smartphones have been for a while now and they are the most valuable company in the world. Apple announced the launching of its first iPhone in 9th of January 2007 and later on that year Apple Launched its first ever phone called iPhone 1G and since then they have been become great company and an authoritative company. Most the latest iPhones comes in 4.7 inches – 5.0 Inches and Apples Latest phone is called iPhone 6 plus and many have been aspiring to get it.
After Discussing some things we need to know about the “Duo”, now let’s see why most people said Android OS smartphones is Outselling iPhone IOS Smartphones, but before we start please grasp a full bucket of pop-corn near you because am going to take you through the ultimate reason why a normal Nigerian we reject an iPhone for an Android phone. See;
High Cost of Purchasing :- The cost of purchasing an iPhone in Nigeria is jaw-breaking, they will rather purchase the mobile phone of N30,000 than to buy a mobile phone of N200,000, it’s a normal thing everyone thinks here in Nigeria. It only takes a determined person here in Nigeria to dish out N200,000 to buy a new mobile phone whereas the money can be used to purchase 2 to 3 laptops for home use or business purposes. Let’s say an Infinix smartphone sells for N19,000 and an iPhone sells for 150,000, taking a close look at the specifications and other details of the two (2) mobile phones they have no distinct difference which means the specs are really the same, example is when the R.A.M [Random Access Memory] of the Infinix and iPhone are both 2GB and a storage capacity of 16 GB for the both, which phone will you choose?. Android phones are affordable to all in the sense that you can even get a brand new android phone in Nigeria for as low as N10,000 and get a fairly used for less than N10,000 which is why you should know what you must check before buying used mobile phones in Nigeria and with this you can get a very good android phone which makes Android phones a mobile market stable product.
User Experience :- Android smartphone are known for their simplicity and also have a nice user interface to create good experience for the user, like I said at the beginning of the post, operating of android phone is very easy and the Menu icons are well arrange to make clicking and operation tidy, this type of operation is lacking on an iPhone and what I mean by lacking is the absence of back button or icon on iPhones which is not good and the absence of Bluetooth to send and receive files , the back button supposed to be there to make easy navigation through different pages. Android offers simple to use, flexible interface for users which makes it very easier for anybody to use it. All Nigerian gamers knows that playing games with android is very easy and not as buggy as other phones like iPhones and most of Apple iPhone games are premium games which you will have to pay to download can you imagine? To play game I will have to pay again.
FREE USE OF APPLICATIONS :- Google which is the backbone of all android phones makes it easier to install applications on your android phones using the Google PlayStore , According to reports there are billions of applications stored in Google’s directly in which most of them are free and can be used to solve the problem you downloaded it for or the ones you downloaded for fun. This kind of feature is not present in Apple store, in Apple store you would have to pay for the applications, lets you just wanted to try out and you paid for it and the app didn’t solve the problem you paid for you just have to delete it and the few bucks is a lot of money. You cannot just install any application on your iPhone without passing it true iTunes which you might pay before downloading it.
FURTHER CUSTOMIZATION :- Android phones can be further customized to fit your needs by accessing the source codes if you are a competent programmer which is very good but Apple’s iPhone is not allowed to be edited for further customization since it is not open source.
SHARING :- Android users including me enjoys sharing file from one android phone to another phone using wireless connections such as Fileshare, Xender,e.t.c which can be very fast to transfer large amount of data or using Bluetooth to send files from my android phone to another android phone or mobile phone or to a desktop computer and can even install third parties applications on my Android phone without having to verify the application efficiency with Google . This feature is not included on Apple IOS smartphones in which there is no Bluetooth available to send or receive files unless from another iPhone user or you download it from the Apple IOS stores and third parties application cannot be installed on the phone unless it passes through the APP Store.
NOTE : My friend once told me that Apple’s iPhone is made for High class people not really for the youths. Maintaining an IPhone is not an easy job what of the amount of subscribing for browsing although Android browsing charges is not cheap but recommended over that Apple’s. “It is better to go for the devil you know than to go for a foreign devil”.
