Ace--Man, 19 Nov 2015Yes it does mean that Android is the more common choice for technical people. They are cheaper... more What technical? Are you joking? HAHAHA I had Samsung S3 ; s4 ; HTC ONE m8 ; Lg nexus 5. I found these phone easier to use than the iPhone. What a good joke. My father is 81 and he is using my old galaxy S4 no problem. Android phones are for people who want a decent phone for much less money.
heynekko, 18 Nov 2015Yes you are right. N9 with its measly 1Ghz single core and 1GB ram can open up to 60+ apps at ... moreyes you are right and i really miss old times of n9, n9 is the best phone i used in my life. quitting meego is the biggest mistake nokia made. I had greater hope on jolla. but jolla already stoped the development :(
Georgio, 18 Nov 2015Many people are buying android phones because of the priceYes, a cheaper price is also practical. Who wouldn't choose a cheaper option if the specs are on par with each other.
Georgio, 18 Nov 2015Just because you can customize more it doesn't mean that the os is for technical people.My 81 ... moreYes it does mean that Android is the more common choice for technical people. They are cheaper, but also for technical people.
I guess that a technical person would do whatever they can with whatever phone they have, but android is the more common\sensible choice.
Android can be customized much easier, whether its cheaper or not. Who said that technical people can't like cheap phones?? I'm sure that technical people would prefer cheaper phones to experiment on. For the reason that if it breaks, its not that much of a waste of money.
Hear this loud and clear. I would never buy a Samsung running this Tizen Crap. This is what is keeping me away from buying your S2 smart watch.
Tizen is not yet reaching the crowd.Samsung has to focus on marketing the phone by stating OS pros with other popular OSs.High light the OS concept than the phone itself.Phone features are obviously well identified by buyers when they buy.
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2015Wrong. People are buying android because its more practical to do so. People buy apple because... more99% of what people do with their android no matter its low , mid or high range also same what people do with iphone .
All the basic thing like Call , Message , Surf internet , selfie , Games , Music ,Video .
if they do different thing that ios cant do , only people want to show of to apple guy that their phone got lot of feature that nobody used or know they have it.
Android or Ios or windows -in that order - tizen has failed to take off -crash landing over and over last 3yrs .. Apple are becoming arrogant sadly ..now launching -nay relaunching leftovers apple 5 -4 inches screens ..good size must be size of a pocket diary 6.5 inches high tech ..you are hard pressed to find buy a leather good specs pocket diary 2016 even web stores .. give the customers what customers need n want- multipurpose cost effective built to last 2-3 yrs - ..tizen ? long long way to tipperary ..
swirly, 18 Nov 2015Lol, they should better be working on their horrible UI at the moment...:D
Lol, they should better be working on their horrible UI at the moment...
I'm naming three things:
Sony has 4K display
Sony has waterproof
Sony software/UI is much responsive and lag free than TouchWiz.
Of course I'm not saying Sony is better...you asked I answered :)
Georgio, 18 Nov 2015Just because you can customize more it doesn't mean that the os is for technical people.My 81 ... moreWrong. People are buying android because its more practical to do so. People buy apple because of social standards.
Ace--Man, 18 Nov 2015Android, being open source, has always been for technical people. It's much easier to customiz... moreJust because you can customize more it doesn't mean that the os is for technical people.My 81 year father has always had android phones. People are buying android phones because are cheap .
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2015Because they don't have to.. Because they own >50% of the smartphone market?around 22% i guess ( down from 35% i guess )..
and sort of got 4 or 5% in the premium smartphone segment
Tizen, Jolla, Ubuntu Touch they are all true Linux based mobile OS's.. The only possible alternative to Maemo 6/Meego Harmattan.. Android is going down
HD14, 18 Nov 2015I think tizen is based on pure Linux so it doesn't need heavy spec. Nokia n9 meego is an examp... moreYes you are right. N9 with its measly 1Ghz single core and 1GB ram can open up to 60+ apps at one time.. Imagine an N9 with today's 64-bit octocore and 4GB ram.. (drool)
david, 18 Nov 2015another OS... why dont Samsung pursuade Jolla, BB to use Tizen firstBecause they don't have to.. Because they own >50% of the smartphone market?
