Brian Coriour, 50 minutes agoI’m still going for Android as the winner. I can download a YouTube version that has no ads, no need… anymore“I can play ps2, psp, gamecube games and so on on my phone through emulation”
How does that work with scoped storage? Is it a pain to manage your files or does it work just fine if you throw everything into something like the documents folder?
hmm, 15 minutes agoI also see times where IOS taps the scale while Android taps up. So what’s the news for… moreI honestly don’t expect iOS’s market share to drop anytime soon unless China puts Huawei fully on Apple in China. Apple’s prices have certainly crept up, but I’d say recent years, when prices have been closer to Android flagships, have been the exception rather than the rule. I think most people are already pretty entrenched in the operating system they like, but there are still a lot of people who probably wanted iPhones that they just couldn’t afford. Eventually they will be able to afford them at some point.
Super Android 22, 1 hour agoI honestly agree that ios atm is better than one ui and stock android, I don’t understand… moreI don’t see how Pixel tries to be like iOS, but the real reason why people who want a clean OS and updates would buy a Pixel over an iPhone is because they find iOS too restrictive. Some may also find it too expensive these days. I have had 2 iOS devices, the first being the OG iPod Touch. It was a solid product at a time when the web browsing experience on Android was still pretty bad. The other is the iPad Mini 6, I like the size of it, and it’s fast, but other than that it’s probably the most disappointing tech product I’ve ever bought. But it’s mostly because I don’t like iOS than a problem with the hardware itself.
I also see times where IOS taps the scale while Android taps up.
So what’s the news for? There are times when IOS also taps the scale in the future and then taps up again, as we see happening so far. So what’s the news for?
Super Android 22, 1 hour agoI honestly agree that ios atm is better than one ui and stock android, I don’t understand… moreYeah, if they’re so eager to emulate Apple, why not just switch to iOS? I don’t see Android getting better, only worse. They say it’s for “privacy” like restricting access to APIs from sideloaded apps, but malware still finds ways to get around it? Doesn’t sound like privacy to me. I even agree to install the app and enable the accessibility features of the app. If you’re using a sideloaded FOSS app, it probably has more privacy than the apps on the Play Store anyway. Even if I stay on Android 11, I suffer. Apps that rely on those restrictive new things, such as limited storage like Minecraft, which worked FINE on older versions of the game! Some apps have stretch scroll even while I’m still on Android 11!
As for OneUI, another funny thing I realized is that I remember a toy camera with “Normal” and “Fine” quality options. How about a thousand dollar phone? You can only change the aspect ratio. You can no longer change your resolution in the stock camera app. Why? Probably to fill the storage more that you can’t upgrade so you are implied to use cloud storage. You can at least change the video resolution and frame rate, but I wonder how long it would take for that to go away too?
I’m still going for Android as the winner. I can download a YouTube version without ads, I don’t have to pay. I can play ps2, psp, gamecube games and so on on my phone through emulation. I can download movies and TV show apps for free with no ads and no payment. I can even get any app on playstore for free. By going on Google and typing the app name and at the end I’m typing APK. And now I have it for free. Android gives much more freedom than iPhone. You can’t do any of this on the iPhone. You have to pay to forcibly remove ads on YouTube. And no emulation and no apps that give you movies and TV shows and anime for free. And if it’s illegal, maybe Google should be shut down. They give it to me like this 🤷🏻.
Super Android 22, 1 hour agoI honestly agree that ios atm is better than one ui and stock android, I don’t understand… moreSamsung had a good thing for One UI. In my opinion, it started to dip after 4.0. 4.1 even feels unfinished. Here’s just one thing: on One UI 3.1, I can only drag my finger partially down to see just a few of my notifications, then drag them back up. On One UI 4 you have to drag it pretty much all the way down. The brightness slider looks worse and notification icons are all the same and it looks weird, notifications are not grouped anymore and they all have rounded corners which is probably more taxing to display, it just feels… off. It doesn’t help that One UI 5 literally traps the app icons in spheres and gives them one solid color.
Anonymous, 1 hour agoUnderstandable. Android tries to become restrictive like iOS while still being clunky Android and…moreI honestly agree that ios atm is better than one ui and stock android, i don’t understand this fanboyism about stock android or mainstream meadia/tech sites having some following for one ui lately. Pixel is the worst for it, it literally tries to be ios but fails in most areas / feels like a fake ios with barely working features.
If you only want top notch software support then go for iPhone over Samsung or Google devices (it’s obvious what they are trying to focus on), if you want something different with unique features / more flexible with feature set then go to a different Android maker than Samsung and Google, you also have more consistent and not broken hardware. (Huawei used to be miles ahead, but we saw how America hates Chinese brand success)
the graph is not from 22-09, but from 2019-2022, please correct the message
Understandable. Android tries to become restrictive like iOS while still clunky Android and they will switch to iOS. This comes from an Android 11 user who is considering iOS when I replace my phone when Play Store apps and the like stop supporting Android 11. I hate Android 12 and above. Scoped storage is stupid if there’s nothing the user can do to allow an app to use any area they want (I know there are probably ways around this, but the fact that it’s meant to restricting me is a problem). I couldn’t figure out how to get an app to read a single folder from my Micro SD card. I MUST use my internal storage and only in specific folders, such as the documents folder. I can’t just create a folder in the root file system and put things in there that an app can access. Look at Minecraft: it’s harder to navigate all the way to the data directory, and Google only wants you to use their built-in file manager if I don’t want you to. I hate stuff that you and apps start migrating to it and I hate it, I can’t turn off the bounce scroll animation without literally turning off all the other animations first. The stuff looks more padded and the fonts look bolder and coarser, icons are no longer shaded and have a stupid outline that I can barely tell them apart, I don’t remember. I’d rather have iOS than stock android and I’m getting more sick of One UI with every update.
.alpha, 2 hours agoSoon you will all be using Apple/NSA phonesNo chance.
Rather, President Putin will order Sarmat 29 to be used on the US.
Ah, yes, Apple’s almighty monopoly!
Why does that chart start at 20% and end at 80%? 🤔
Brace yourself for comments from haters 😏
No negative comments. But it’s my personal choice. I will never replace Android with iOS. Freedom and adaptability are more important to me.
Soon you will all be using Apple/NSA phones
The unknown in the Chinese market is HONOR.
uposs, now this is full of negative comments hahaha
clickbait fake news targeting Apple
So almost 4 Android smartphones also every 1 iPhone
So only a few people get completely ripped off on their hardware by Apple or so I hope
While many of the mainstream popular Android smartphones are expensive, they are also less expensive, as Apple is anyway
I wonder what market share is of smartphones budget smartphone or value for money
