Does the Android operating system compare to Apple's iPhone?

This is a review on the Android Operating System, I will be reviewing Android on the Samsung Behold II Cell phone although the Android Operating System is very similar for every phone.

Before I had the Samsung Behold II cell phone, I had the Motorola Cliq by t-mobile and I returned that phone after 3 days.  The Motorola Cliq seems extremely fragile, its very heavy and thick. The operating system on the Motorola Cliq is slow and constantly has errors when you use it for social media and other functions.  I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS MOTOROLA CLIQ CELL PHONE.  BUT ANDROID OPERATING SYSTEM IS GREAT.

Reviewing the Android Operating System for Cell Phones

Overall, I think that this operating system is great. Its really helps to keep me organized and has made my life very convenient. The touchscreen on the Samsung Behold II works great and is very responsive. Here are some of the advantages to the Android operating system that I think are very important.

  • By far my favorite feature is the ability to download hundreds or maybe even thousands of apps for free.
  • One of these apps is called Mabilo ringtones and you no longer need to pay money for ringtones either. You can easily download ringtones straight to your phone for free.
  • I downloaded tons of apps for free, and my phone still runs as fast as it did when I bought it.
  • Picture Quality is good enough for me. I would rate it 4 stars. Pictures come out clear and vibrant, but its obviously not as great as a digital camera with flash.
  • I am able to get directions straight from my phone when I need to find a restaurant or address. For this I use the app called Google Maps, which is free and easy to use.
  • I get all my news on this phone, and it actually saves me a lot of time because I do not need to watch the news all that often. I know headlines before the news comes on because I downloaded the free news app by Thomson Reuters. Thomson Reuters is a great resource for news as they report Top News, Technology, Stocks, World News, Internet News, Politics, Science, Health and many other categories of news that you may be interested in.
  • You can access the Internet easily with this phone, including youtube and social media sites. I can easily update twitter posts using the free twitter apps that I downloaded.
  • Reception on this phone is great!! Never really have problems.
  • Very easy to use and learn to use, the hardest thing to get use to is typing, but its not difficult, I just needed to get accustomed to it because I had a blackberry before this.
  • The life of the battery isn't as bad as I thought as long as you download the free app that helps you save power. I think the app is called power manager. The phone can easily go a day or more if you turn off 3G connection using power manager.

To download ringtones or Chameleon and other Software you can check out the link below, they have all the ringtones you could need.

      The Behold II is definitely an impressive smartphone which suit all our Android needs. Needless to say though that the Droid is everyone’s favorite right now so T-Mobile will not sell as many Behold II handsets as expected. The Samsung Behold II has a brilliant 3.2-inch, 320-by-480-pixel AMOLED display, a big upgrade from its predecessor's 3-inch, 240-by-400-pixel TFT display. The Behold is packed with all Google services that you require to have access to while on the go: Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps, YouTube and Google Talk.

      The Android OS is one of the best out there. I still don't know if it is better than what the iPhone offers, but I think it is one of the only true contenders.
