We live in the age of smartphones. By now, a significant percentage of mobile users in the Land Down Under operate a smartphone on a daily basis. With plenty of choices from different brands, it can be hard to choose a phone that will best suit your needs. In an article for Business Insider, Steve Kovach shared his thoughts on the advantages of buying an Android phone.
According to Kovach, the most favorable feature of an Android phone—such as one that can be purchased from a Telstra shop in Melbourne–is that it is highly-customisable. The Android operating system is a very open platform: From tweaking the appearance of the homescreen to designing a custom ROM, an Android device can be anything that a user wants it to be. Android units are designed to accommodate apps that can customise nearly every aspect of the phone, unlike in other devices that are stuck with their particular designs. One can change the keyboard, add widgets, and edit the phone’s theme almost in a flash.
