The purpose of this report is to prepare market analysis of Operating Systems for Smartphones. Over the last decade, mobile phones have become one of the major means of communicating both voice and data. Today, mobile phone is virtually a social necessity for most of us. Increase in computing power of mobile phones, improved bandwidth of wireless technologies, and internet technology have led to the introduction of Smartphone which provides greater levels of intelligence to its users. This intelligence lies partly in the phone itself and partly in the smarter-network in to which it connects. This intelligence is a potent combination of hardware used to build the Smartphone and software i.e., operating system which runs on

In Manjoo’s view, “It’s hard to call Android anything other than a resounding success. Well, except for one small thing: Most Android phones are crap” (Manjoo). Although Manjoo acknowledges the fact that Android is a very successful company, in making this comment he rejects to succumb to the extremely popular operating system that is Android. The unresponsive touchscreen, unnecessary software, overall layout of the home screen is unattractive and difficult to comprehend and the overall cheapness of the phones frustrated Manjoo. I believe that one of Android’s main problem is not the software but the companies providing the service. Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T all add extra adware to Android devices that are paid for by companies such as Blockbuster and NFL which cannot be removed from the phone. Consequently, the perfect phone expected by the consumer is not being delivered.

Odds are, that in your pocket right now, is one of the single most advanced pieces of technology. But how did it get there? Your smartphone is the culmination of a movement that started more than fifty years ago. Although, technology as a whole has grown more in the past fifty years than in the past two thousand years. It all started with the creation of the personal computer. The first desktop computer to be mass produced and sold nationwide was the MITS Altair 8800 in 1975. However, interest in computers was very high before that point in time. In fact, several technology companies and industries already took shape before that point. These desktop computers, as well as mega computers marked the beginning of an era. This era is one that
If you are a dedicated iPhone consumer you must realize that you have basically bought the same phone over and over again. It is time to trash the iPhone and get a new Android. Although Apple’s tyrannical iPhones took the cake by far in the beginnings of the smartphone revolution, Google Android soon came in to assert its dominance over the now pathetic iPhone, much like an omega-wolf taking down an alpha-wolf to become the new leader of the pack. With Android’s wide variety of smartphones, like the well-known Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One, consumers have more options than ever. Also, the Android phones themselves are unequivocally better when it comes to customizability. On Apple’s part, software features are severely lagging; Whereas,
In the most recent market analysis from the NPD Group, iOS has assumed control of 43 percent of smartphone sales. The analysis further shows the market for basic phones has dwindled and that the cell phone market is fast becoming a smartphone market. The demand for anything other than smartphones is evaporating. This push toward high-end smartphones is helping not only Apple, but also Google and Samsung, which are benefiting from the desire of consumers to carry these all-powerful ‘mini’ computers in their pockets. With the connectivity these smartphones present, users are never left ‘out of
We are expert at the degrees of user interface (UI) / user experience (UX) for Android. We have the tools to do it accurately; and the challenge of having to manually write some code is welcome.
Smartphones are a mobile technology that utilizes an advanced operating system in portable devices. Currently, the advanced operating systems employed on smartphones are IOS and Android. IOS was developed by Apple and is exclusive to its mobile devices only. However, Android is an open source operating system that is utilized by various smartphones on the market. Nevertheless, current smartphones employing either operating system encompasses the capabilities of a cell phone, camera, computer, mp3 player, external hard drive, GPS, and internet connection. This collection of technology on one device makes it very advantageous for businesses and convenient for individuals. According to Smith (2015), this is supported by the fact that 64% of American adults have a smartphone for various tasks.
