Android is the most popular mobile phone operating system of today, occupying more than 80% of the smartphone market all around the globe. The reasons behind the demand of this Google made OS are many. Among them, the top factor is the number of apps in Google play store. Android is a much simpler platform to develop an app thus, attractive for qualified and creative developers with fresh, innovative ideas. Also, it is much easier to earn right amount of cash through Android apps than iOS, Blackberry, Tizen or Microsoft apps. These facts made more and more quality app developers start developing innovative and exciting apps for this platform. Some of the most downloaded apps in Android store are chat, games, social media, security, online shopping, news, and photo editing apps. And without any doubt, this abundant amount of quality apps in the Android market (which is called Google Play Store), made Android come this far. Also, the neat and simple user interface, people’s favorite brands such as Samsung, Sony, Symphony, Walton, Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo using this OS in their smartphones, low price, etc. are some other causes for the fame of this operating system.
Like other countries, usage of Android smartphone is rising steadily in Bangladesh. Here in this page, you will find latest released Android smartphone price in Bangladesh from over thirty brands including Samsung, Symphony, Xiaomi, Huawei, Walton, Sony, LG, HTC, Micromax, Oppo, Lava, etc.
After the first release in September 2008, this operating system is continuously being upgraded to match the latest technological standard, or in other words, it is continually trying to bring better technology and user experience through its new versions and updates. The Android update history goes like this – Alpha (1.0), Beta (1.1), Cupcake (1.5), Donut (1.6), Eclair (2.0–2.1), Froyo (2.2–2.2.3), Gingerbread (2.3–2.3.7), Honeycomb (3.0–3.2.6), Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0–4.0.4), Jelly Bean (4.1–4.3.1), KitKat (4.4–4.4.4, 4.4W–4.4W.2), Lollipop (5.0), Marshmallow (6.0), Nougat (7.0) and Oreo (8.0). With every new update, Google optimizes the software even better, makes security improvements, adds new features, fixes small bugs, etc.
Like everything else in the world, this leading platform also has some drawbacks or negative sides. The strongest one is the security. Because the OS is quite flexible and open for developers, hackers can attack much easier in Android devices than Windows or iOS as these systems follow more strict rules for developing and publishing apps in their platforms (arguably). Not only that but because Android is also the most popular platform with a tremendous number of users, so often hackers are more interested in it. So, if you are highly concerned about your privacy, you may like to consider iOS operating system from Apple or Windows OS from Microsoft. Other than the security issue, Android is quite a charm, and we don’t claim that Windows phone or iOS don’t have any security issue at all.
Some of the worldwide most downloaded Android apps are Whats App, Facebook messenger, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, etc.
