With the iPhone 5 launch just a couple of weeks away, Android users have more than one reason to switch to iPhone 5, drawing themselves away from the Google platform.
Apple’s smooth integration and attractive design could grab some Android-loyalists away from the technically more impressive products such as Samsung Galaxy S3. Apple roll-outs generally have a certain and distinctive “wow” factor to them which sets them apart from the competition.
If iPhone 5 lives up to its hype, some users who may be frustrated with the Android ecosystem that could irk users with the pace at which wireless carriers approve version upgrades to existing Android devices, may shift focus to the Apple’s ‘next best thing.’
The interface design of iPhone is tweaked in such a way that almost any task that is handled on the device can be done in an intuitive, straight-forward manner. More Android users are running the version of Android their OEM and carrier have agreed is the best choice for them. This means that bloatware and a UI re-skin done more to differentiate the product from competitors than to improve the user experience.
Google has offlate transformed Play Store it from the old “Android Market” for apps only into an iTunes-style general content hub, offering books, movies, TV shows. However, people who are serious about music and TV on the go could still find the iPhone to be a better option.
Apple has surely taken its time to come with a 4G-capable phone. 4G/LTE is now an expected feature at the high end. So, in all likelihood, the iPhone 5 will be the first of its line to boast 4G connectivity.
