Today, the great debate rages as to why people should invest in Android phone. These are among the latest and greatest of smartphones that you have to choose from today, and they offer a lot of different options for people. Of course, choosing this OS over others like the iPhone, BlackBerry, or even Windows Mobile devices is going require a little bit of time to research the different benefits and features that you can appreciate in a device like this. If you’re questioning whether you should buy an Android phone or not, here are some great reasons to consider it.

Home screen customization is a lot nicer than what you get with other OS devices on any Android phone. You can add and remove widgets, apps, contacts, and change wallpapers so that your home screen is exactly what you need. Plus, with multiple home screens, you can easily have room for everything to be just a touch away, no matter how much you have on your phone. Another perk of the Android phone are their cameras. These phones all have high quality cameras, many which are 8 megapixels and 720p HD video quality. If you’re looking for a stellar smart phone that can double as a digital camera when you don’t have one on hand, these devices take the cake.

Android phones also offer the option for removable storage. With a micro SD card you can expand the storage capacity of your phone, swap cards for different storage options, and get up to 16GB of extra space on almost all the devices that run the Android OS. When it comes to speed, these phones also have faster processors than other smartphones on the market today. You’ll lose a little bit of battery life for having a better processor, but all in all, it’s worth it.

There are a lot of different reasons to buy an Android phone. Even if you just don’t want to be locked into the constantly upgrading world of Apple technology with an iPhone, the Android makes a great choice. So many people like the simplicity of the user interface and the unique features that this OS has that they’ve sworn to never go back to a different phone again. You should check out Android for yourself and see everything that it can do. If you want one of the most popular, functional smartphones on the market, Android is definitely the phone for you.

by VISHAL GAIKAR - on Feb 24th 2012 - 1 Comment

It’s time to big celebration over at Samsung Headquarters as the Korean cell phone company announced that the critically acclaimed Samsung Galaxy S2 has hit a whopping 20 million sales worldwide.

In early 2011, they announced that the 10 million Galaxy S sold. Later that year, they reported that the Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy S2 had exceeded 30 million units sold in 15 months (the Galaxy S, introduced in July 2010, 20 million units and Samsung Galaxy S2 , launched in Korea last April and May in France, 10 million units). 

This time, they just announced they sold 20 million Samsung  Galaxy S2 in less than ten months. A performance for which Samsung should have now surpassed the 40 million Galaxy S and S2. According to Samsung, taking just 10 months to hit the mark puts it ahead of the original Galaxy S (hovering around 22 million sold) by 7 months. 

Recall that the iPhone 4S had over 4 million copies sold in one weekend, while it took 55 days to Samsung to surpass 3 million copies of  Samsung Galaxy S2. We have no unofficial figures, however, analysts said, the iPhone 4S could also exceed 30 million units sold in early 2012.
