It is a well-known fact that Android Smartphones are becoming more and more relevant every day. Besides being the global leaders in regards to smartphone software, Android has managed to gain popularity in view of the fact that it provides a large number of Apps for its users, fact that helps to expand the whole mobile experience, which is the main desirable characteristic of the current smartphones.
The main difference between Android and Blackberry is the purpose of the mobile itself. At first, it was clear that Blackberry was a business-oriented device and concentrated merely in the e-mail service, whereas Android had always kept its preference for the applications and the possibility of customization.
As time goes by, Blackberry seems to practically have lost its primal purpose and it’s willing to attract a great number of young users, creating and adding services such as Blackberry Messenger and other apps more addressed to younger audiences. But at the same time, these smartphones continue to be too formal for some users, who would want a more personalized device.
Android Smartphones are also excellent in terms of e-mail and messaging, but what really stands out, as we’ve mentioned before, is the great variety of apps that it includes, as well as the interfaces for social media services, such as Facebook or Twitter. That and an easy and well-structured functionality is what make Android mobiles an excellent choice when faced with the eternal dilemma: “Which smartphone should I buy?”
