Android. 5 reasons why I like pure Android.

Android. 5 reasons why I like pure Android.

Android users are constantly arguing about which operating system shell is better. Sometimes you can even find a separation of preference between the two skin types at the level of separation between iOS and Android. In such cases, people are simply not ready to accept someone else’s position and very actively resist the opinion of another, although in general there are almost no big differences between shells from different manufacturers. But pure Android is very different from them, which I like much more than almost any shell. Today I want to share five reasons why I prefer pure or bare Android to all other green robot options.


  1. Android updates
  2. Unnecessary programs on the phone
  3. Working with Google services
  4. Increasing the speed of your smartphone
  5. Familiar interface

Android updates

When manufacturers take on the task of creating their skins, they have a much harder time when it comes to updates. You must first adapt the shell to the new version of Android and only then roll out updates for your users’ smartphones.

Carrying out these works sometimes becomes so complicated that the manufacturer simply “scores” on them and does nothing to ensure that smartphones, which were not sold very much, have up-to-date software. Even security updates are sometimes delayed and users simply don’t get them on time.

Some manufacturers even speculate on this so that people buy new models. To do this, it is enough to show a new smartphone that will be better in some way, and it will also have new software features that could be added to old models through a software update, but no one needs this.

Unnecessary programs on the phone

Many manufacturers … Why are there many? Everybody! They love stuffing their shell with all sorts of unnecessary software. When they say that they have their own editors for everything, as well as applications for entertainment, it looks beautiful, but in reality it is much easier to use services from Google or recognized world studios.

And many more like to install partner apps that do not benefit anyone at all, except for the phone manufacturer, who received money or profitable partnerships for this . The worst thing is that not all of these applications can be removed, although sometimes you really want to.

My “favorite” of these applications are branded browsers that the devil knows who transfers user data. And okay, only if to offer targeted advertising – Google also uses this – but often the data goes to no one knows where. Recently , Xiaomi was caught doing this .

On smartphones with pure Android, none of this. Sometimes manufacturers can install a couple of applications, but this does not load the phone’s memory and the user’s mind. You can put up with this and coexist in one reality.

Working with Google services

And sometimes some shells are not able to work with part or in rare cases with all Google services. In this case, you have to go around workarounds and try to return the functionality you are entitled to by Android ownership.

This will be especially true for those users who are used to the same applications on a smartphone and another device, be it a PC, tablet or another smartphone. This applies to all stock Android devices, including devices released under the Android One program.

Increasing the speed of your smartphone

An important component of pure Android is its speed. Even on an inexpensive weak smartphone, it will work quite smoothly, unlike shells, which can sometimes produce friezes on flagships. Now it has already become a rarity, but sometimes even performance does not help to fix the situation .

This is due to the fact that Android is quite well optimized, and shells can be overloaded with graphic elements, services, or simply not be developed enough. As a result: lack of RAM, processor overload and slow applications.

Familiar interface

What I’ve always appreciated about iOS is that when you switch from one phone to another, you get new features, but the main interface has a clear consistency.

So it is in pure Android. The main style changes from version to version and at the same time retains its idea. And most importantly, the whole system looks very monolithic. Everything in it is collected and adjusted to each other. There is no such thing that one menu is made in the corporate style of the manufacturer, and the other is either forgotten or scored , but as a result, everything looks very different. This is especially true of the phone menu and applications.

And it’s also very infuriating when part of the interface is made in the corporate flat style, and part is almost in skeuomorphism. Someone gets used to such sloppiness, but it only starts to piss me off more and more every time.
