Android Phones Still Rivalling iOS

Like many carriers, T-Mobile has been using the Android operating system for its cell phones for some time now and the OS, which is arguably the biggest rival to Apple’s iOS on the iPhone, has been getting better and better with the developments of the devices themselves.

T-Mobile android phones are some of the most in-demand, with a number of the top manufacturers around the world using this combination of operating system and carrier. The various models all offer different features from amazing high definition cameras to 4G Internet connectivity and super-fast processors.

Samsung and HTC are two of the biggest names to run the Android and T-Mobile combination, and each has produced two really high quality cell phones, both of which have been flying off the shelves around the globe.

In the case of Samsung, their Exhibit 4G even offers some customers in the US a 2-year contract. Customers can play games, listen to music and stream video with very little buffering, depending on the Internet strength, which is assisted by the ever-improving 4G Internet access and the 1GHz processor.

Then there is the Galaxy SII – the predecessor to the eagerly anticipated Galaxy SIII which was unveiled in London recently and expected in stores later this year – which has a 4.5-inch screen, one of the largest on the Android market. Samsung made a huge effort to improve battery to life to allow customers to stream and download freely and easily, and it’s no wonder why it’s such a favorite across the world.

The HTC offerings are just as good, with the Amaze 4G and One S. The Amaze is most famous for its camera, which has the ability to remove closed eyes and replace them with the same person’s open peepers from another photo. The screen is great for watching video and the processor helps it to work seamlessly.

The One S is among the thinnest on the market, and comes with the very latest version of the Android operating system, ice cream sandwich. You can store and run tons of apps courtesy of a 1.5GHz processor, 15GB of storage and 1GB of RAM, and a much better battery than ever before.

The range of T-Mobile android phones is always expanding with plenty of 2012’s most anticipated models, including the Samsung Galaxy SIII already lined up to run the “dream team” of T-Mobile and Android OS, so expect the gap between Android and iOS sales to continue to grow ever closer.

    I’d say iOS is more so a rival to Android than the other way around. Android ships more than 59% of the smartphones (at least in Q1 of 2012) and that number looks to only be increasing. With phones like the SGS3 getting record number preorders, and with some of the features its packing, I don’t see iOS gaining more tread on Android. Maybe it will with the iPhone 5, but that is still a few months away.

    I am sure that the success of Androids was a surprise for Apple as well. Apple is stuggling to win a bigger part of the market and the popularity of Android devices makes is a very difficult task.
