Last week, we ventured into the AC forums to see what aspect of Android annoyed people the most. We saw a few different responses, ranging from things like slow updates, app quality, and value depreciation.

While there's no doubt that Android has its faults, there's also plenty to like about the operating system. It's highly customizable, you have more hardware variety than iPhones, and so on.

Taking a look at the forums once more, here are some of the things about Android our members like the most.

  • It's not Apple.
  • I mean, have you seen the Pixel? It might as well be.
  • Customizability is the biggest pros. The biggest con is the duplicity of Android apps because of skins by manufacturers. I understand that most people need manufacturers apps because they're not really electronically advanced. Give me basic Android and let me do me!!
  • My favorites are mostly about the software / OS: - Call screening: the greatest. Can't remember my last robocall.
    - Integration with Google Home: it's great to set reminders on one of my google homes and have it ring on my phone later.
    - Integration with my other devices: my desktop computer, chromebook and phone are all just different windows to my stuff.
