Pros: Excellent software/application support Thousands of Apps (free) to download online Wide variety of phones (to suit your budget) – Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorola Frequent OS updates (for improving performance) Android phones can also function as a router to share Internet. Multitasking
Cons: Some phones become sluggish (slow) after installing many apps. Most of the Android phones are touch screen phones without keyboard (there are a few exceptions) Most of the features need internet (which is not major issue now) If you are buying an expensive android phone you might not like the fact that there are many phones available at really cheap prices which operate on Android.
Verdict: If you love to experiment with new apps and games, and chat with your family and friends on whatsapp and other messengers, this phone is for you.
