Android was created due to the idea of an iOS competitor.

It’s not about features were talking here, we all know Android is miles ahead of it. It’s just the idea of Google buying Android and doesn’t know what to do with it in the first place. Then iPhone came along and the rest was history.

Umm, When Android came out, it offered a real multitasking OS from day one. Plus it was written around Java with the premise of not being tied to any specific CPU architecture. To sum this was its Achilles heel at first, because mobile CPUs sucked at the beginning. Plus ARM CPUs were single core 16 bit and 32 bit processors with no embedded GPUs. As time went on GPUs as well as memory controllers, DMA, IPU, and more were embedded on mobile SoCs. These mobile SoCs exponentially were getting so fast that they can run desktop apps and more. Including VR, AR, with more tools and utilities than ever before. It’s no wonder why we still see mobile sales climbing. With over 1.5 billion smartphones being sold annually with Android taking the vast majority of those sales. It’s no wonder why smartphones have become users primary computing device. Not to mention Androids agnostic platform helped to propel it, not only on smartphones, but tablets, watches, cars, TVs, cars, appliances, SBCs, Chromebooks, and more. It’s why both Microsoft and Apple saw an agnostic platform could future proof themselves as well. Not being tied to any specific hardware architecture helps to protect users applications in the long run. That’s why Microsoft has their Universal apps, and Apple with their Swift platform. They both saw that their developers when they compiled and optimized their applications for some specific hardware, and if that hardware changes, then the developers have to go back and change their applications. With Android this was not so, and apps can run on X86, MIPS, multiple ARM SoCs, plus those apps scale better. Now today for every app that is added on Apple’s app store 3 are added on Android or Google’s play store. Look at Apples latest iPhone X. Developers have to make their iOS apps work on the iPhone X’s new display. You don’t see that on Android, because it scales very nicely. Say what you want about Android, but it is here to stay, and is leading the way.

Dude use paragraphs… And I will say this, bragging about the Play Store having more apps is nothing to brag about, there’s a lot of trssh on the Play Store, you can type in WhatsApp and get 7 different entries with the apps all using the icon, etc, there was even a fake WhatsApp that got many installs and was high up on the top free list, that looked just like the real thing

If you really want to get technical, then there is lots of crap on Apples app store as well. Sure Google needs to clean things up more. Now that is all you focused on.
19. mikehunta727 (unregistered)
There is very little crap on the App Store actually as Apple screens every single app ,. You wont see duplicates on the App Store like you do with the Play Store sometimes, also malware is wide spread in the Play Store due to poor screening by Google.

“the only reason why Android has such a high market share is because of the amount of devices available from low to high, that’s it”. Really is that what you believe? First of all Android OS offers more features and functionality over iOS for years, and it still does today. iOS nonfictions suck monkey balls to this day. You still don’t have real multitasking or split screen multitasking on iPhones in 2017, or the latest iPhone X. iOS system setting are still limiting, and restricted compared to Android. You even have to go to iOS setting to change camera settings in 2017. For years Apple has been taking features that have been in Android and have been implementing them in iOS.

You forget that Google’s business model is based on ads. The more apps the Play Store has the more ads they can slap every where that’s why they don’t take the Play Store app entry process seriously

I don’t need to be a developer to know that there is a ton of trash on the Play Store that should never be on the Play Store, you have no argument here, obviously Android is a more flexible OS than iOS, no one has argued that, my whole point was about the apps on Play Store and how there is a lot of trash on there that should not even ever be there in the first place, which you won’t find on the App Store

Even if you concede that Android changed because of iOS that’s it. You don’t just develop an OS from scratch in a few months and it be acceptable. Google had been working in the mobile space for a long time as a search engine but wanted more. Android was that opportunity.

Even this demo phone had 3G while Apple had to wait to release a new phone to catch up with Android….

You don’t have to watch the video to see how it looked like: it looked just like the iPhone OS.

Google always did and will copy Apple no matter what. Google survives because of Apple. Google is just a search engine prior to purchasing Android and YouTube. They didn’t innovate anything, they copied and added features, that’s all they did.

That’s all Apple does now. All these great features people are touting on this year’s iPhone models weren’t invented or even innovated by Apple. Even FaceID is a technology they got from Microsoft’s Kinect.

Impressive how far things have come since the beginning. Even just web pages in general. Looking at that website they pulled up made me cringe.
