Although Android has been around for a long time and has hundreds of millions of users worldwide, there are still many misconceptions about the operating system. Here, let’s take a look at 4 myths that many people often think about Android phones.
All cheap phones
This is the most common mistake that many people still think about Android phone models. In fact, this operating system is used for a lot of different phone segments, from cheap to expensive. There is no shortage of high-end phones using the Android operating system, such as Samsung’s Galaxy S, Note or Z Fold series.
The number of Android users is less than iOS
This continues to be a misconception. Since its launch, the Android market share has never been less than iOS. According to the latest report of 2022. Android dominates 69.74% of the global smartphone market share. Meanwhile, iOS accounts for only about 28%. In some developing markets, Android’s dominance is even more apparent. In Asia, for example, Android has a market share of 81%. This figure is up to 90% in the South African market.
Android phones are often jerky, laggy
Basically, the stable operation of the phone is mainly based on hardware, not software. Therefore, the phone is prone to jerks and lags because the hardware does not meet the needs of use, or is damaged or damaged.
With high-end Android phones, the rate is very low, similar to Apple products. You can completely use it for a long time without worrying about your device being slow or laggy. Of course, with cheaper phones, this situation is inevitable.
Harder to use than iOS
In the early days, iOS could be considered a very simple operating system, easy to use. However, over the years of development, iOS and Android are getting closer and closer together. Today’s iOS has added many features that were previously only available in Android. That has made iOS much more complicated than it used to be.
