However, Apple's dominance of the market is no longer secure. Newcomers have caught up fast, with products such as the Samsung Galaxy, Sony Xperia and HTC One taking an increasing share of the market.
Reasons to purchase an Android phone over their fruity rivals include a choice of screen size (iPhones are all 3.5 inch), more options for customising your home screen and expandable storage options (many Android phones let you expand and swap storage with a removable SD card).
A little known additional benefit of opting for Android over Apple is that you can get a refund on Android apps bought from Android Market if you change your mind within 15 minutes of purchase -- currently Apple's App Store does not offer refunds to its customers.
It is easy to find up-to-date information about the latest products. On the internet you could try T3, TechRadar, Engadget, MobileMag or PCadvisor. In print, check out magazines like Android or Mobile Europe. For Q&A you could try the forums, including Android, AndroidCentral and TalkAndroid.
You can buy Android phones pretty much anywhere -- online at Amazon, and from supermarkets and phone retailers. The Android phones available from Chinavasion offer the same features as the major brands but without you having to pay major brand prices. We are careful to source only the best quality devices. Each one is tested before it is shipped to you. Many of our phones devices are built in the same factories as the brand name tablets -- and to the same high specs.
Ease Of Use and Comparing Prices...
Non-branded phones do not normally receive automatic 3G/GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) data connection settings from the mobile network provider. However the 3G internet setup is easy. Users need only enter four connection parameters into their phone's settings. The settings are readily available from service centers and provider's websites.
All Chinavasion products are built to the same high standards. However higher priced items are likely to have larger screens, higher CPU rates, dual processors and larger RAM. The quality of the camera is also a contributing factor, with higher spec lenses and higher MP (mega pixel) counts for even sharper images. Higher priced phones may also have additional features such as an HDMI port or GPS. Some screens have enhanced high definition (HD) displays. Greater screen resolution adds to the cost but you are sure to appreciate watching your favourite movies on a pin-sharp HD screen.
Recommended Android Phone...
The Android 4.0 "HDMIDroid" (CVFD-M310-2GEN) lets you share your pictures and movies. Equipped with its own HDMI video output you can hook up the Droid to the HDMI input of a television or projector and run your own slideshow or video presentation from your phone. No additional expensive HDMI adapter is required to get HDMI video. The Droid has its own 4.3 inch 960 x 540 pixel display, a built in 4GB memory (expandable to 16GB) and a Dual 1GHz Core processor for advanced performance and genuine multitasking capability. In short, it's a high performer with enough brain power and speed to cope with whatever you ask of it.
