Me encanta Android por su sistema operativo de código fuente abierta, ayuda a desarrollar el sistema operativo por medio de modificaciones para personalizarlo a nuestro gusto y utilidad, tomando en cuenta que hoy en día Android es uno de los sistemas operativos mas comercializados en todo el mundo, este desarrollo de capacidades se va ampliando cada día con millones de creaciones de nuevas modificaciones para su uso diario, creado por Google para ser usado en dispositivos de pantalla táctil. Este sistema operativo esta empleado en múltiples marcas comerciales por su velocidad e interfaz personalizada para cualquier usuario. Ademas cuenta con el la integración de Google chrome como navegador, dándole al usuario eficacia en velocidad de navegación, cuenta con su propia tienda de apps en la "play store" donde se encuentran múltiples aplicaciones para beneficiar y contribuir a la personalización del dispositivo con el sistema operativo android, algunas de estas apps son pagas y la otra gran parte son presentadas de forma gratuita.

What do you dislike?

No todas las apps de este sistema operativo están disponibles en todos los países restringiendo su uso a pesar de ser gratuitas, en otros casos el uso excesivo de este sistema operativo o funciones multiuso llegan a agotar la batería de forma progresiva o recalentar el dispositivo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo usar este sistema operativo muy dinámico si están interesados en la gestión de múltiples dispositivos inteligentes para sincronizar todos los equipos de forma optima para mayor capacidad de su uso.

"Main Advantages of Using Android"

What do you like best?

What I like most about this system is that the Android code is open, in addition to that there are more than six hundred thousand applications where most are free to use, the freedom of code allows Android to adapt to many other devices besides the cell phones, such as gps system tablets, watches. Offer total freedom to the owner of a terminal to install what you want from Android Market as a separate executable (apk) that does not limit the freedom of the user or impose proprietary software to install files or documents that we need at a certain time

What do you dislike?

What I do not like is that the Android system is not very intuitive, which hinders its administration. There is also the fact that this system does not always close all its applications, which even requires downloading an application that closes open applications, I also dislike it when an Android update is released, access depends on the manufacturer, which makes the answer may take a long time

Recommendations to others considering the product

My recommendation would be to use the Android system with confidence because it is very good and functional in all aspects, and a useful tip on my part could be to enable the energy saving modes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main problems I resolved were being able to communicate effectively with my co-workers when one of them is absent from the office

"Android is the best mobile operating system for Smartphones"

What do you like best?

Android is the most popular operating system used in portable devices ranging from smart phone, tablet, cameras, Televisons, smart watches and different other electronic devices. With its capability to access internet and lots of pc applications being ported to android its ranked as the most popular os. Google provides security patches and good feature updates every now and then. It shows the stabilty and constant support towards android market. Also the Android market gives you abundant free apps to choose from with multiple features, customizations according to one's need. Totally I feel i will continue to use my android phone for many more years to come.

What do you dislike?

With each upgrade to Android, developers and advanced users are losing certain core functionalities/ options which requires alternate patches and often rooted android devices to acheive these features. I suggest to leave these as an option to the end user where he can customize things without losing them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No question android is the best operating system available now in the market with thousands of free applications and feature rich content.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have utilzed it in our Internet of Things projects and even for developing AR/VR applications for our client. With its portable nature and core linux kernel is obviously the best customizable operating system and its easy to port and develop applications for it using softwares like unity and mandarin. We even used it for some automation projects to customize alerts through ussd and subscriber identity module.

"Sistema operativo innovador Android."

What do you like best?

Me gusta por que es uno de los sistemas operativos mas comerciales que existen entre los fabricantes de dispositivos de pantalla táctil o dispositivos inteligentes como teléfonos inteligentes, tablets, relojes inteligentes, televisores y algunos automóviles. Android es uno de los sistemas operativos mas rápido debido a sus actualizaciones, evolucionando cada año de manera eficiente haciendo sus funciones mas suaves y rápidas , esto hace que algunas opciones como la aplicación de descarga sean mas rápida de descargar e instalar. Android cuenta con un sistema de multi-tareas haciendo posible el uso de varias aplicaciones a la vez. El usuario puede sincronizar múltiples dispositivos Android con una misma cuenta de correo gestionando toda su información a la vez.

What do you dislike?

Android es un sistema operativo de código abierto masificado por millones de creadores de aplicaciones, a pesar de ser provechoso para algunos desarrolladores que desean beneficiarse de este sistema operativo, existe la contra parte de los casos de aplicaciones con archivos corruptos malware que terminan dañando el dispositivo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo a los usuarios no saturar los dispositivos con exceso de aplicaciones ya que cada una de estas con el tiempo les exigirá actualizar, para mejorar su funcionamiento con el sistema operativo Android haciendo el dispositivo mas lento y reduciendo su rendimiento.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A diferencia de otros sistemas operativos de códigos cerrados, Android le da la oportunidad al publico de desarrollar múltiples aplicaciones abriendo las puertas a los creadores o desarrolladores de aplicaciones útiles que puedan mejorar las funciones del dispositivo o para uso de entretenimiento, permitiendo al usuario descargar de forma gratuita o pagando un precio justo por su valor equivalente. Esto ha permitido que nazcan millones de aplicaciones cada día para ser descargadas por todo el mundo.

"Android the very open OS"

What do you like best?

Where do I begin on the android OS? Well android is super duper simple to use. Like you could teach almost anyone to use it in less than an hour which is great for older folks and people who aren't super tech savvy. I personally like the rooting support on android where you can modify it to your liking. Remove bloatware, and give yourself so much more access to so many features that come pre-locked. Not only is it easy to do but, even if you aren't super tech savvy they have programs that will allow you to do it with a simple button click. Android is awesome and I personally feel it's better than IOS as they attempt to limit a ton of your ability inside the OS.

What do you dislike?

I would have to say one thing I dislike on android would be that they can be infected. This is one thing I will say IOS has over android as android is open source and just about anyone can write a virus for your phone allowing them to do just about anything. This is one huge downfall of android but, personally I've never been infected with one of these virus. I have ran into a adware installer which did install a ton of advertisement programs onto my phone which was very annoying but, other than that you are good.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ability to be modded to fix business security.

You can remote into them like you could a PC.

Simple to work with so just about any employee can use it.

"The OS you don't wanna miss out on. "

What do you like best?

Android has alot of features I don't even know where to start. Trust me the customizability of this OS gives it the edge over most mobile operating systems. Easy to use interface with alot of free features you would wanna check out.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I would say i don't like is the app optimization. Looking at what they've done with the iOS you would expect more. This is not really a downside because all you need is more ram. An Android with 3gb ram will handle apps as good as an iPhone with 2gb.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely get an android OS

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Well it is my daily driver. I use it for emails, media consumption and everything you would use a mobile phone for.

"Android es un sistema operativo muy amigable con el usuario."

What do you like best?

la posibilidad de interacturar directamente con el sistema, hace de android muy manejable y se ajusta a la necesidad del usuario, además de la inmensa gama de dispositivos con muy buenas especificaciones que cuentan con este sistema operativo lo hace una opcion viable para adquirirlo, lo economico de estos dispositivos crean la oportunidad de que muchisima gente use este increible sistema operativo.

What do you dislike?

la interfaz esta muy poco trabajada en anteriores versiones del sistema operativo, sin embargo con las mejoras que presenta actualmente en su diseño, si eres pretenciosos necesitas buscar y descargar alguna aplicacion que te brinde la posibilidad de ajusta a tu antojo, este aspecto que es lo que se visualiza cada vez que se usa dicho sistema operativo

Recommendations to others considering the product

si totalmente cuenta con muchas ventajas respecto a otros sitemas operativos moviles...

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

respecto a otros sistemas operativos moviles, destaca la libertad de uso de este asi la facil utilizacion en lo que respecta a creacion y uso de software, asi tambien la disponibilidad amplia de aplicaciones gratituitas destinadas a tareas de uso cotidiano, ademas de aplicaciones de trabajo....

"Android and its Bricities"

What do you like best?

In my opinion I think it is and always will be one of the best operating systems, so I take the boldness and time dedicating and expressing my thoughts about my experiences with ANDROID, Normally we know other systems that are more cormecial but ANDROID has been I've been taking the jackpot, since part is released and applied in products that are excellent in quality and apart from good price is that any user could get it.

What do you dislike?

Normally as we know and obviously we are all very clear and recognize that there are better operating systems as you might say, more complete than Android maybe more complementary, not everything is rosy say that they lack more updates in terms of applications included in the operating system but they are in doubt is the most convenient and cheap option

Recommendations to others considering the product

Undoubtedly I recommend this operating system to eyes closed, it is complete, effective, comfortable and safe.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Obviously I have used ANDROID in my working time to be able to obtain applications in which the videocoferencia video calls and audios are easier to obtain at the moment of not being in the work area is as if it were next to the others.

"Revisión del sistema operativo Android."

What do you like best?

Me gusta el sistema operativo Android por su disponibilidad en diversos equipos electrónicos a la venta, su fácil uso hace su interfaz rápida y fluida al ejecutar aplicaciones dentro del dispositivo. Esta plataforma fue diseñada para equipos inteligentes, no es compatible en ordenadores a menos que descargues un emulador Android. Es un sistema de seguridad con poca vulnerabilidad en su estructura, dándole diversos usos al dispositivo que emplee este sistema operativo como conexión Wifi, reproductor MP4 y MP3, conexión bluetooth, entre otros. Android posee un código de fuente abierto dándole la posibilidad a los usuarios descargar su código base y desarrollar una mejora. Es uno de los sistemas operativos mas usados en la industria telefónica, viene integrado con una tienda la cual permite la descarga de aplicaciones para el dispositivo de manera gratuita o paga, la mayoría de las aplicaciones son gratis.

What do you dislike?

La mayoría de las aplicaciones conllevan un consumo de energía elevado haciendo que el dispositivo se descargue de forma progresiva, usualmente se tendría que descargar una aplicación para regular el consumo de carga y rendimiento del equipo para optimizar su duración lo cual lo vuelve un proceso tedioso.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo configurar el dispositivo de manera que su rendimiento sea optimo para reducir el consumo drástico de batería.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gracias a su código abierto Android abre el marketing en la vente de aplicaciones por medio de Play store la tienda local del sistema operativo Android, con diversos tipos de aplicaciones de utilidad para mejorar la calidad de rendimiento de los dispositivos táctil o aplicaciones de interés del usuario con la cual puede disfrutar de manera gratuita o pagando un precio equivalente a su valor. Las aplicaciones pagas en su mayoría su costo son económicas dependiendo la complejidad de su uso.

"Android en la mano de todos."

What do you like best?

Android es un sistema operativo de código abierto el cual se puede crear diversos programas que mejoren este software creando un amplio mercado alrededor del mismo. Android fue diseñado por Google para dispositivos móviles de pantalla táctil, como teléfonos inteligentes y tablets llegando a la mano de cada persona en el mundo con un fácil manejo de su interfaz y con una versión actualizada cada año lo cual lo vuelve el sistema operativo mas rápido y fácil de usar. Permite por base de su sistema de apps descargables una amplia gama de aplicaciones de mensajería instantánea, navegación por medio de Google Chrome, buena capacidad de almacenaje, cumple satisfactoriamente con las necesidades de cada usuario gracias a su adaptabilidad.

What do you dislike?

Al pasar los años Android busca la manera de mejorar mas y mas por medio de sus actualizaciones, esto quiere decir que aquellos dispositivos que fueron creados en un año especifico ejemplo 2018, se pronostica que su versión Android sera obsoleta en algunas aplicaciones para mediados de mitad de año del 2019 cuando Android lance una actualización superior que requiera mas capacidad de rendimiento de la que posee el dispositivo para funcionar de manera optima al igual que sus aplicaciones.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo mantener siempre actualizada la versión Android para mejores beneficios del software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Android es uno de los mejores sistemas operativos para dispositivos táctiles, que permite gestionar la función de varias aplicaciones sin colapsar, pero una de sus mayores virtudes lo hace una espada de doble filo, ya que todo este alto poder de trabajo tiene un gasto fatal en su batería haciendo que se descargue muy rápido, en algunos casos o en ciertos dispositivos ocasiona recalentamiento.

"Review on Android operating system"

What do you like best?

i like the operating system since it allows me to do multiple tasks at the same time,it has an easy to use interface that i don't need alot of learning on how to use it.The operating system maintainance and servicing is readily available even in nearby repair shops, the technicians can easily fix my phone in few minutes without contacting the manufactures of the mobile phone.

What do you dislike?

The bigest challge i face with my android operating system is the power retention capabilities where alot of power is needed and therefore forced to always carry power bank t help me recharge my phone frequently.i also dont like the security features of the app since once stolen its always hard to recover the phone due to ease of resetting the phone or changing the operating system with ease.

Recommendations to others considering the product

i would recommend the operating system due to its ease of use and also ease frequent upgrades on the system that enhances new features addition to the operating system users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

i have inplimented a number of marketting sollution using available apps on google play store to boost my busness.

"Android Operating System"

What do you like best?

Android operating system is designed with sleek modern parameters to fit the current technology world. I absolutely like it best of all operating system because of the ease of operation. No limitation at all to Android users, unlike other operating systems like IOS. I discovered that even inexperienced people can operate Android without having complications. So basically, it's the easiest, and very well the most affordable of all. It supports almost all apps by default, so functionality is much.

What do you dislike?

There are some setbacks although. Android gets easily infected than other operating systems, this is basically because it operates as an open source

Recommendations to others considering the product

Majority of Android users can testify to it that it's a wonderful operating system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Used various needed apps on my android with ease. I have been enjoying it for years now, all with a perfect operation and experience. It can support almost all apps that exist. I have no need or desire to change to another operating system yet.

"Android el sistema operativo mas viable."

Al ser aliado de Google permite el uso libre de las aplicaciones que procede en el mismo, se puede compartir en varios dispositivos simultáneamente facilitando su sincronía, tiene facilidad de actualización por el cual existen variedad de versiones de Android. Ofrecen a los usuarios una alta variedad de aplicaciones en su tienda integrada "play store".

What do you dislike?

La necesidad de usar múltiples aplicaciones da como resultado un gran consumo de la batería. La moderación de uso de las aplicaciones puede hacer que dure mas, pero para un usuario que usa mucho sus aplicaciones la batería no tiende a durar.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Algunos dispositivos android por el uso excesivo de sus aplicaciones en algunas ocasiones tienden a recalentarse el cual no afecta el dispositivo de forma inmediatamente, pero si sucede de forma recurrente puede sufrir daños graves con el tiempo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Android abre las puertas cada día a nuevos creadores de aplicaciones, el cual se vuelve un mercado de innovaciones para aquellas pequeñas compañías que quieren prosperar a base de una aplicación gratuita o paga. Dando la oportunidad de lanzar al mercado su producto en su tienda de apps.

"Review as a Android user"

What do you like best?

What I like the best is the open source apps available on the store. Everything is almost free. Newer updates very frequently and new feature's. It's scalability in terms of usage in different sized devices like tabs, phones and car audio devices. It always comes up with newer features.

What do you dislike?

The most disliking thing is the hanging of the devices after a certain period of time. The device hangs and it would not allow me to shutdown or restart the phone too. I feel that the android users are way too monitored by google and it makes me feel like there is no privacy for people.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use a lot of apps on my android phone.I do a lot of bank transactions on my phone. finger print sensor has made it lot easy to use any banking applications as it doesn't require me to type in the login id and password everytime. Google maps are the best in usage , where i use it for everyday commute.

"Fantastic Customization for People who truly care. "

What do you like best?

So many things to list! The freedom of not being tied to one specific app if i don't like how my current one is made i can look for others like it! I love Googles new call screening feature! With this I've cut down spam calls by roughly about 80%. I love how it's got the potential to be as advanced or as minimal as needed without cutting ties from one side or the other.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't a lot i don't like. I would prefer dark mode options for the menus but that is just personal preference.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Stay away from Samsung hype, Google Pixel Is the best experience you can get for your Money. It's clean, easy to setup and even easier to secure. You get monthly security updates and they ensure you get protected asap when emerging issues show up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mobile Penetration testing for securing mobile devices.

"Android is Boss"

What do you like best?

Comparing to IOS, I like android because its flexible in terms of access your files on your phone, you have a file manager to manage your files, The android community is big and linking devices and all is fairly simpler. I have been using it for years and its features are more close compared to that o PC and Mac or Linux, easy navigate and find what you are looking for

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I do not like about android, Im content

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to be in charge of your files and have features similar to that of pc and MacOSX, and easy to navigate

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have worked with android using apps like ODK for data capturing, I use it personally, the answer here is not specifically for trying to solve a problem but a need to be connected and have a system that suits your needs

"Android overtook iOS"

What do you like best?

I have been using Android since 2014. I started my acquaintance with Android at the time of the Holo interface in KitKat 4.4.4. During this time, managed to get a huge number of updates. Now, as the main phone, I use Meizu M3 Note, on which is a rather old version of android - 5.1. But thanks to the beautiful shell, it is pleasant to use even such an old system.Thus, we come to the first Android “Plus” - full openness of the system. Each user with proper knowledge can create his own firmware and shell for the system, one of which was Flyme from Meizu. My second device is Xioami Mi A1 with a clean android latest version - 9.0. A huge plus of the stock version of the anroid is the beauty of the Design Material used throughout the system.And full compatibility with computers allows you to handle large video / audio / photo files taken on the phone on the computer.In general, I can describe the advantages of this system for a long time, but this review page is simply not enough.

What do you dislike?

First of all, at the moment I am watching the problem of malware, various bombers and other "dark" software.

Secondly, the lack of full-fledged multitasking. This is due to the peculiarities of the architecture and the processor itself, but everything goes to the fact that in the future, Anroid will become a mini-PC

In general, I am very pleased with the system and if it were not for these minor drawbacks - everything would be much more beautiful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

At the moment, this is one of my main contacts, so all my actions related to communicating with people via the Internet are through telegrams. Thanks to this program, I can advise people and sell them my products many times faster.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have to work in such conditions under which I constantly need to communicate and contact with people. I use such programs as Telegram, VKontakte, Discord and some others as my main contacts. But since I am not always at my PC at home, I had to solve my problem. And I found it in the mobile versions of the above applications on my phone.

Now I can always communicate with my clients and provide them with technical support as quickly as possible, if such is required.

"Android is the smartest"

What do you like best?

I like the applications that android offers. Most of all that it is a mobile operating system developed by Google. The best part of androids offerings is that it is designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The audio is accessible with live transcribe which helps the employees and customers who are deaf communicate with us whenever needed and much quicker. You can see the words appear on the phone as they are spoken. The new option for flights, hotels and airfare is great for scheduling trips and business trips for our clients who need help last minute or in advance.

What do you dislike?

I dislike absolutely nothing about android. I am and always have been completely satisfied with all google products especially android.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend android to everyone. It is the smartest, simplest and has great benefits of communication for both employee, individual, family and business. Android is a must have for everyone.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems that android is solving is its artificial intelligence baked in to make every phone smarter, simpler and more tailored to each person. This makes each device beneficial to every employee because it is its own.

"It is a good app because millions of people use it nowadays!"

What do you like best?

What I like the best is that anybody can use it and it is completely free to use for anyone, anywhere which is great. I like that I can download so many games from a phone for free and enjoy. I like that there are so many games in a Android and it is more high tech with editing gears than apple which make sit the best regarding creativity tools and all. Also, I like the games that download for free form android.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike is that only certain people can use. Android phone users can use android only and the apple phone users miss out on the technology gearing tools that apple users may not get use. However, I dislike that some apps you have to pay for to use which sucks and I highly dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly enjoy the app more if there were more apps that were free where many more people would use android more.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using Android to test out games to play during my spare time and observe the difference of android from apple and test out the tech gear tools to use that many people say are good since apple users lack those tools.

"Stock android is the best OS for mobile phones in my opinion"

What do you like best?

I really like the flexibility of the system. Even if I do not like some of the software which is pre-installed by the vendor (For example, "Samsung" software), I can delete it easily. I can get the root access and change the core elements of the OS. I've used a lot of different Android devices and the best one for me was OnePlus 3T mobile phone. It is just flawless - speed, reliability, battery use, the absence of bloatware and overall quality - all of these points are refined to the edge.

What do you dislike?

I really dislike the bloatware implemented by some of the vendors. I had some experience with multiple Android devices and sometimes there are a lot of useless applications that my colleagues neither I need. Sometimes the OS lacks the ability to remove such applications unless rooted. Yet there are a lot of different devices using Android. Also, some of the older devices seem to be intentionally worsened. For example, Samsung Galaxy SIII was a great phone when just released - it worked almost flawlessly yet now it lags so much you can't even complete the simple tasks (For example, Google Maps takes ages to load). I've even tried to restore the Factory defaults and that didn't help much in this case. Yet I'm not 100% sure if the Android or the phone itself is responsible for this. Notifications management should be implemented in the older versions of Android too in my opinion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Android to both - experienced users as well as starters. It's easy to use and if you need more capabilities - Linux-based OS such as Android provides you with all tools and functions you might need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's not an exception to the Android only, but I really like the ability to tether the internet from mobile data and use the phone as a router. Sometimes I had cases where I need WiFi in the place of a building where the router's signal doesn't reach the devices. I like Google services themselves and use them a lot, so I really like the implementation of Google calendar and syncing between multiple devices. It's easy to use even for an inexperienced user.

"An Open Source OS System with really cool features"

What do you like best?

The best thing about android is its drag and drop features. The latest android studio has a greater speed and also the emulator is super fast that means code development is quite an ease. Also I am a fan of the complex nature of behaviour made simple into classes and other things

What do you dislike?

The boot time of the android studio is eternity. Also most of the features are locked, unless you do a jailbreak onto the device.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Android is definitely going in the right way. With Kotlin, development becomes quite an ease.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Android is virtually everywhere. Nearly everyone in the developing world has an android phone as it is cheap. Also the app store has a lot of apps. The benefit is that once you make up an app, it is very easy to commercialize it and can also be used internally

"A well integrated OS"

What do you like best?

I personally really like using Androids. I like that the platform is so customizble, and that I can set it up to my preferences, but I can also help my grandma use it on "easy mode." There's definitely something for everyone. Obviously, Android's biggest competitor is Apple, and it has both wins and losses here. Compared to Apple products, Androids are much more affordable, are available on a wider range of products, and are more customizable. For people with tech skills, this is definitely the preferred platform. As a non-mac user, I find it easier to integrate Android with Windows, and access my files across all my platforms. As much as I complain about bloatware, I do really appreciate the way Google is treated as a native app. I'm a big fan of google products, and I like that gmail and drive are so seamlessly integrated.

What do you dislike?

My biggest complaint about Android is that, while it is much more customizable than Apple products, Android products come with a TON of bloatware. It's absolutely absurd how much space is taken up by apps and products I neither want, nor need. The bloatware is really frustrating in part because these days, space is a hot (and expensive) commodity. Being promised 8 gigs of memory and only getting 5 because of the amount of bloatware is unacceptable, and I don't know why the platform continues to be set up to allow this. Disregarding that, it's just unnecessary and confusing, especially for the older generation. I helped some of my older family members get set up with Android products, and to them, the concept of redundancy doesn't make any sense. "So just get rid of it if I don't need it." "I can't, sorry." is a frustrating conversation to have. "Why do I need an email app if I have a gmail app?" "I don't know, grandma."Really, get rid of some of the bloatware and Android products will feel as seamless and smooth as apple products.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're new to using technology, you definitely need to keep in mind that Android has not practiced the vertical integration business strategies that Apple has. Android's biggest failures are all pretty directly related to this problem- the existence of bloatware, susceptibility to malware (on Android/Windows collectively, of course), lack of ease of setup/use (for the technologically challenged), etc. I don't think that Android should pursue this vertical integration economic strategy, that would seriously drive up prices. However, I do think it would be wise for them to try and eliminate some of the problems that are related to the broader picture of how products are made and sold.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I don't really use Android a whole lot at my current job, though I occasionally text coworkers during the workday (even though we work in a hospital, everyone gets pagers instead of cell phones, but realistically, cells are much easier to use). In my previous job, where I was a Fulbrighter through the DOS, my phone, tablet, and laptop were indispensable. I was living in rural Malaysia, where very few people own computers and people communicate primarily by phone, especially using apps like Whatsapp, WeChat, and Instagram. I found installation/use of these apps to be simple and navigable, and I was really happy that I was able to use my phone to communicate with my students on a consistent basis.

"My Android Phone (Galaxy Note 9)"

What do you like best?

I like Android because it can do way more than Apple/iOS

What do you dislike?

I like everything about Android it's way better than anything out there right now... I especially like that Android is on many many different brands of phone so you can switch Brands but not have to switch operating systems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I wouldn't say I'm solving any business problems with Android but Android is definitely a part of my everyday life because I run a business from my Galaxy Note 9 which has the newest software from Android.... and I love it

"Android Wins in My Book, Hands Down!"

What do you like best?

Android is updated regularly for free and my Samsung Galaxy phone continues to work without needing to upgrade my hardware. Android is fast and lets me multitask and download and use apps to my hearts content.

What do you dislike?

I am happy with Android and there is nothing I can think of at this moment that I dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would not consider even trying the alternatives to Android. I ignore them all because I know I am using the best that is available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

So many! I can manage all of my freelance work with my Android phone. I can access files on dropbox, respond to messages in Fiverr.com, access photos on google photos to upload to instagram and/or facebook -- not to mention being able to do the basics of phone calls and texting without errors or issues.

"Android is our favorite mobile OS"

What do you like best?

We accepted to use Android as our main OS for employees' smartphones. It's fast, lightweight, customizable, and has many apps for team collaboration and team control and permissions.

Each operation is very fast, and multitasking helps when you have to send emails, check your calendar, navigate through files that are both on your phone and in cloud storage.

New versions of Android also improve the overall experience, introducing many new and useful features.

What do you dislike?

Android offers more customizations than its counterpart and main competitor iOs, so it's also more prone to errors for bad configurations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Android is a great OS, and users are overall satisfied. You really can't go wrong with it. It's completely different from iOs, if you're used to it, but different doesn't mean worse or better. In my opinion it's worth and very recommended.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company had to provide smartphones to their employees and Android has been the right solution, we are completely satisfied.

"A revolution in the field of mobile platform technology. Android has changed the tech world"

What do you like best?

Android is no doubt one of the best software technologies in the world. It has brought a great solution for the mobile users and has really brought a revolution. High stability, clean and clear user interface, very few bugs and high reliability, these features make Android platform the best. Also the Android app store (Google Play) has countless numbers of applications which make working on Android mobiles very easy and productive.

What do you dislike?

There are a few bugs which I encounter in Android platform mobiles. With some mobiles the system gets hanged when the number of installed apps increase or the mobile memory approaches more than half of the limit. Android should not recommend integration with these hardwares if the system gets failed in load times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommended for mobile users to use Android phones

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are some good apps available on Android platforms like Skype, Office tools for mobile, Gmail and others which help me in doing office communication on the go.

"Is it better?"

What do you like best?

Android offers so much more flexibility that most other operating systems do not. Besides the fact you have Swype, you also have so many other apps you can use to personalize your device. I really like that you have the freedom to download basically any app you want and the only limitation is your storage space availability. The play store offers tons of amazing apps, but you can also download apps from the internet (just make sure it's a safe app).

What do you dislike?

I have used Android since it came out and I have yet to find one thing I don't like about it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have actually been able to solve a few problems using Android. To begin, there are some great apps out there that facilitate group messaging that allows all our users to participate without worrying about security. Also, I have been able to download several industry specific apps that have helped me figure out things such as square footage and how many gallons of paint or how many sheets of drywall we need for a specific job. I'm able to do all of this whether I'm in the office or at the store. The group messaging allows each contractor to bounce ideas off the other, or help figure out a specific problem. Basically having your computer in your hand has been the best problem solver for many companies.

"Additional security for login"

What do you like best?

The flexibility of the OS and user friendliness when compared to other operating systems

What do you dislike?

Honestly I am in love with the OS I have no dislike for them whatsoever, but I will like to suggest a new method of securing the phones using a constantly changing password that corresponds with the dates for example the password that will be entered to unlock the phone today sunday 21th 2019 will be 21042019 using the ddmmyyyy format tomorrow password will then be 22042019 , depending on the algorithm selected by the user

"Android Small Devices are Best"

What do you like best?

I like that the software gives you option to edit almost every little thing available. While it might seem complicated to some, once you are used to it, it makes life a whole lot easier having complete control over everything. iOS operations seem to be basic without a lot of room for creativity in the organization department.

What do you dislike?

I can honestly say that there is nothing I dislike about the android system, and I am preferential to it when it comes to my phone.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a software that allows you to make the changes that you want, exactly how you want them, then android is for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Android makes it amazingly easy to operate all of my software for business without too much of a hassle, as well as the ability to play with customization. I enjoy being able to set up and connect my phone exactly how I want it, and it is extremely easy to access my files and music incoming and outgoing.

"Great for users, good for developers"

What do you like best?

+ If you are a normal user, this is a very friendly system with so many possibilities even if you aren't a expert in use of smartphones;

+ Android is actually a very solid system, but Google continues to improve it even more after each update;

+ It has great integration with other Google's software, like Gmal, Chrome, Google+ and others;

+ It has a really big apps and games library;

+ Many free content and quality premium apps/games too;

+ As a developer, Google has a very good support for you to starting developing on Android platform;

+ If you are a developer, Android has great potential to reach users to your game/app around the World, once Android is very popular on many areas around the globe.

What do you dislike?

- As a developer, actually, it's a real challenge to have some attention on Android official appstore (Google Play Store), because there is so many good apps and games available and most of them, free (for you as a user, this is very good);

Recommendations to others considering the product

As a user, this is a very good system. You can customized many features on it, to make it good for your daily tasks. With Android you have so many games and apps available and most of them are free, and the premium ones, are very good (in most cases).

As a developer, it's very cheap and easy to develop to it. There is various options to make a game or app for Android, and not only Google's Android Studio, but it is a very saturated platform too. Only a good project could not be the enough to you for getting some attention, you will need a good marketing as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a user i use Android on my smartphone and i'm very happy with it, because it really helps on my daily tasks.

And I'm an indie games developer too, and Android was my first platform that i released my games. and i continue to develop for it until now.

I made this choice because mobile has a great potential to reach users for your creations, it's cheap and it's not very difficult to start developng to it.

Unfortunately this platform is saturated with the amount of game and apps launches that occur every day, and this makes it difficult to get some attention, especially if you are a indie developer and don't have the a lot of money to invest in marketing.

"Only one of two real options in the cell phone area. As light computers, it's great alternative. "

What do you like best?

The breadth of applications for Android is beyond compare. It's likely even larger than IOS since there is the official play store, amazon apps, as well as many 3rd sources. Not all of the apps are good, but there is plenty to find for most any need. The nature of the OS is also that it can fun on many platforms - not just smart phones. This has been a real boon. Finally, as compared to IOS, Android can be had at a lower price point.

What do you dislike?

It's not as clean as IOS. It can be buggy - especially with new updates. It's not uncommon for a new patch to require subsequent updates to take care of unforseen problems. Also, not all patches are available on all devices. My phone runs the newest 7.11, however I used six android smart boxes at work which are limited to androird 4.0 and wont update.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be aware that compared to IOS (or even Windows) that Android has many, many different people writing programs for it. Much beyond the native Google programs, you will be on your own. Be ready to find some time fiddling with programs to get them to work the way you want them to (or searching to find the right program for your need).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Beyond the cell phone market which is well known, Andoird also offers small "smart boxes" - basically stripped down pc's runing android software. These boxes make any monitor or TV into a smart tv. We use these at church / non-profit to show power point & video in six different rooms. These smart boxes cost less than $40 ea! So we were able to buy them for less than a single copy of Windows let alone the price of a Mac.

"Android is a great mobile operating system - and easy to develop for"

What do you like best?

As an app developer it is nice to be able to put together once piece of software and have the huge customer base and ecosystem that Android provides. The support services, such as Play Store, make it even easier to do upsells and other revenue generation components within an app.

Second Android is very user friendly so there isn't a huge learning curve for people new to mobile computing to be able to get up and running.

What do you dislike?

The biggest problem with Android is the lack of ability to upgrade the O/S. On many devices Android is "customized" by the device vendor so when a new version is released it can be months (if ever) that you actually get the O/S upgrade. An example of this is I have Android in my car running the navigation and other functions. The company that made the Android device for the car has never upgraded their "customized" version, so it's starting to lack new features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Right now when developing applications there are really 2 options - Android and iOS. It is important to consider your audience and start there. It is also important to consider what the needs will be and make sure you can support as many older versions as possible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

From a developers standpoint the biggest "Feature" is the enormous ecosystem provided by Google for Android. When you release an app it's in front of millions of people right away. You don't have to maintain internal infrastructure like you do with a web application and can update and control versions instantly.

"User Friendly"

What do you like best?

We use Samsung tablets for work and operate an Android system. It is user friendly, if updates are needed it will automatically pop up and ask, so no going to search for updates. The apps available make it easy to be productive for what I am required to do. I think this would be a great product for someone new to using tablets and the Android operating systems. The Android system is easy to learn and it brings in known programs such as Microsoft Office and Google chrome. I like that I can use these features on this system while using my tablet.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that it sometimes looses battery life faster when using the wifi but that might be expected since you are working on it more. I try to keep it turned off if not using the tablet. Overall I can charge once and have it last for a couple of days before having to recharge.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a Samsung phone, the Android system will operate almost exactly like that on any device, which is great!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to work on the go wherever I am in the world. This system and tablet allow me to stay on top of my work I have realized and it truly saves me from carrying a binder full of papers around, now it is all electronic.

"Team Android"

What do you like best?

Android is an easy to use operating system that can be examined/learned/manipulated. It is highly customizable and available on a wide variety of products. The open nature of Android creates a different feel for each user which is what I like best.

What do you dislike?

Android recently added a video chat feature to it's call program that does not appear to be universal for each user (unlike facetime for apple).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Choose team android over apple unless you would like a simple 123 operating system with no room for creativity

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work in an office full of apple products and I am the lone android user. I have found my phone to be more compatible in terms of setting up collaborative functions (google calendar and chat).

"Android over iOS"

What do you like best?

Android is open sourced (to most extent anyways). It is flexible and open, meaning it gives you a lot of option to customize your home screen, buttons etc. You can play around with it and customize the whole phone to your own liking. I always found using Android easier than using iOS. Moreover, testing an Android app in your Android phone is free and super easy, unlike in Iphone where you have to pay to have that use.

What do you dislike?

The Play Store is full of crappy apps. The one thing that Apple has over Android is that each and every app in Apple Store goes through a rigorous quality process which makes sure that the apps are of good quality. Google needs to make the filtering a lot more strict.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not overload your phone with apps. Delete any unused apps as they can clutter the phone. Do not download apps from third parties.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have an Android phone all my life.

"Very user-friendly and customizable!"

What do you like best?

I switched to Android phones and Android OS from Apple iPhone and iOS. The systems are like night and day. Before, Apple was more secure but now there are so many security patches and regular updates to Android OS, that it has become extremely secure when not rooted. Carriers still control the updates so any new add-ons are filtered through them, so potential for malware to find its way inside the update packet is slim to none. Further, Android allows third-party downloads and non-Play Store apps to be loaded onto the device, whereas a stock iOS device requires all downloads to go through iTunes or the App Store.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes with non-stock Android (i.e. with manufacturer and carrier bloatware) can become bogged down and slow, but this can be alleviated by stopping many of the bloatware apps' processes and disabling updates for them, and by clearing your cache regularly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want access to a multitude of apps (not as many as Apple has, but is that really a huge factor?), customizable interface, third-party download access, and many security patches and security apps, I'd strongly consider an Android device/Android OS.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Android allows me to seamlessly interface with my Citrix server at work and check my emails, my PeopleSoft leave balance/schedule/calendar, access my Microsoft Office Products, and connect with a select few other work programs.

"Best Mobile OS available"

What do you like best?

Android has an excellent interface and exposes truly great APIs for developers. Android has been paving the way for a number of years in creating new smartphone features before the competition, and provides superior user security.

Android has absolutely excellent extensibility and gives developers far more flexibility when developing apps. The Play Store is far less restrictive about what apps you can submit, and more predictable with deployment of new versions. I also find that the 3-button nav bar is far superior to a single button interface.

Android is based on Linux and open source, which makes it extremely robust, and adds a number of useful tools for developers willing to root around in the guts of the OS.

What do you dislike?

Android has traditionally not had the same performance as its main competitor because Google does not control hardware and software, so they can't optimize Android as much as they could otherwise. This is changing with the new Pixel phones.

Android also has issues with manufacturers and carriers bogging down the experience with bloatware and unattractive skins. Only a small number of manufacturers, and phones straight from Google, avoid this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't cheap out on Android devices. Always get high-end hardware if you can, especially the new Pixel phones from Google

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My Android phone is an excellent productivity tool, allowing me to manage communication, and even SSH into servers when I'm on the go. The possibilities of what I can do with my Android phone are nearly limitless.

"Many Apps"

What do you like best?

It is possible to find many applications that use this operating system for its operation. Since experts have detected few vulnerabilities in its structure, Android also stands out for its security.

What do you dislike?

The delay of updates. Each time a new version of Android comes out it can take a few months or a year to get to our Smartphone because the manufacturers only focus on the products they currently have leaving aside to what it was a year ago.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Android is good for many apps, so it helps you in different work areas. It very customizable so you can choice what do you prefer for your smartphone.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Android´s browser is more efficient when you are loading any page and that helps me to do my work more efficient, Also, It supports many file formats so I count on it at any time with any file.

"ANDROID!!!"

What do you like best?

The one thing that I like the best that android delivers that Apple doesn't is the availability to change any aspect of the device with the know how. With android I can install 3rd party apps. I can go into the device and change settings under developer mode. Also, I feel that android is much more windows friendly.

What do you dislike?

There really isnt anything that I specifically dislike about the android itself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a fully customizable device, android is the way to go. I like all the integrations that it has especially with input device. I have been able to plug in any usb keyboard/mouse and they work perfectly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have two different jobs and I am able to download apps better and easier. Also its easy to get updates and notifications for both jobs.
