Android is the most popular smartphone OS in the world. It hold a well reputation among the companies producing smartphone and the geeks. Currently, Android holds almost 60% smartphone market and almost every smartphone producing company has tried their hands on it (expect Apple, Of course like HTC, Samsung, LG, Sony and many more. The list is much larger.
But, there are many cases against the companies producing the smartphones based on Android. Recently, Apple filed a case against the biggest smartphone company in the world, Samsung and the decision of the judge was in the favour of Apple and was awarded whooping $1.05 billion.
So, there are many companies looking the alternative of Android. Which is possibly not much easy. There are many advantages of using Android. First of them is it is open source. You can do whatever you want to do to it. Another is that it has a hung apps in its play store. The app is the heart of the smartphone. Your smartphone is worth nothing without app and games.
There are many other OS available in the market such as Windows Phone by Microsoft, iOS by Apple (only used by Apple), and another one from Samsung. Even there are alternatives coming such as Firefox OS by mozila. This is the only OS today which I find can give competition to Android as it will also be open source and yes, mozilla is a big brand. So, only time can tell which OS will lead the market but sure, Android is not going to be on the bottom.
