PRLog - Nov. 23, 2012 - DELHI, India -- The UK's most admired OS, Android is open source software from Google. The newest version is 4.1 (Jelly Bean) although there are many handsets that are running the preceding versions such as 4.0 ICS and 2.3 Gingerbread. There are various mobile manufacturing giants all over the world, which develop their smartphones based on this hottest OS.
Android vs Window Phones
A fresh contestant in the Mobile OS market is the Windows Mobile OS that is innovated by Microsoft to deliver another choice to the customers all over the globe apart from the Android and iOS. The newest version is Windows Phone 8 OS and is obtainable through various techno giants but the preeminent one is Nokia.
Let us examine the relative merits of both these platforms to know which one is capable of beating other one:
Presently, Android offers more than 600,000 apps. All these apps are easily downloadable from the Google Play store. All these apps not only enhance the performance of your handset but also help you to make most out of it.
Windows phone currently offers only 100,000 apps for downloading, which is quite less than the apps offered by Android.
Android tenders Google Maps for navigating directions and places. On the other hand, Windows phone provides Microsoft’s Bing Maps for navigation.
The Chrome Beta on Android tenders tab synchronizing with the desktop as well, however it throws search synchronizing and bookmark in the bargain. Browser sync is noticeably absent from Windows Phone that is odd judging it will run the similar version of Internet Explorer that Windows 8 OS will in WinRT environment.
Android lets you create a series of texts you can utilize as quick auto-replies when rejecting a call. It also helps you in filtering calls from particular people. However, it does not have the capability to go into Do Not Disturb mode.
While in Windows Phone, there are no pre-composed texts you can shoot off to people you do not want to talk. Moreover it also has no Do not Disturb mode. In a single Note, Android really incurs many Apps and features that Windows phone lacks.
