  • Bogus

    Freedom from Apple!

    Android has way more options for cellphone users. If u want a phone with slideout keyboard, Android. If u want a phone with a charm that lights up when it rings, Android. If u want to customize the look of ur phone and the way it runs, Android. I would tell them there is only 4 iphones. 5 if u count the 4S. And guess what, they all still look the same. The only way u can make yours different is by decorating it with cases or stickers. Booyah! Go Android or go home.

  • Freedom. the ability to use a different software keyboard or launcher or email app or web browser. the freedom to choose for myself what i use.

  • I would tell them to switch to an Android system because you can make your home screen customized and keep all of the other apps and things you don’t use a lot on pages you don’t have to see.

  • Brian Miller0513

    That’s is a no brainer. I would tell them that the android experience lets you express yourself in a way that the other OS’s don’t.

  • I woul

  • John Suh

    root acces and dont be a apple tool

  • Eddie Sprouse

    Well if you want the device with the most options and the only one that truly lets the user decide how to use the device then it is a no brainier! 

  • Android is just such a pleasure to use compared to the many phone and devices that are out there. I love having the choice of hardware, with the right shape and size to fit my needs.

    The ability to have free navigation is what sold me at first, but the fact that the majority of apps are either free or ad supported is what signed the deal. 

    I always thought that Windows Mobile was the way of the future. Then, IOS came out and it seemed revolutionary. When Android 2.1 hit, it opened up so many doors for customization…and it gets better every day with each new version!

    Embrace the Android…you’ll never look back.

  • Richard Tubbs

    Android is on the cutting edge of innovation, giving you control over your phone and media. Android is the only platform where the products are made based on what the consumer wants, everyone else makes a products and then tells the consumer to want what they made versus making what they want.

    For starters tell them that with every android device they get free voice guided turn by turn navigation. And if they buy even a year old high end model, they get DLNA and HDMI out, and then I’d talk about live wallpapers knowing how easy some of my acquaintances are impressed.

  • Because Android is reliable and superior.  Just do it.

  • Uncannyzebra

    Switch to android because of customization.

  • It’s an operating system that lets you feel free.  There are no real restrictions on what you can do.  The customization and support by manufacturers, Google, and developers is unparalleled.  It’s an operating system that embraces change and invites you to be a part of it.

  • Jaredpepper

    Google rules… apple sucks

  • Mavericks1f

    Android is Better Than I*hone Because of the NEXUS! Nuff Said

  • Please let me win!!!  EVERYONE should switch to Android because ANDROID is where it’s at!!!  Buy a cheap phone, ROOT it.. Upgrade to the latest OS for free lol. 

  • complete customization (especially if you’re rooted) 😉

  • Its all in the customization.

  • I would tell them if you want to go with a phone that is ultimately restricted and will control your usage, then go with an iphone. If you want a great phone that has up to date features and will not restrict your usage, choose android

  • Jaime

    Android is  cumstomizable in every sense of the word. And…let’s face it, we’re NOT ALL baristas! (No offense to baristas) 😛

  • really you can do anything with this phone. iphone you can do what apple says you can. its your life, do you want to have to have permission to do things.

  • Steve Hunt

    One word: Freedom. With android you get the freedom to decide which device you want (iphone vs. many android phones), freedom to choose how you want to set up your phone, freedom to root (with a lot of support and options), freedom to think for yourself and not be censored.

  • Do it, android is amazing

  • Either be locked down with no customization, OR be on top of everything with your entire phone to be customized to anythj g you want.

  • One word, Open. Android is accessible in so many ways that the iPhone is not. From the market to the sdks to the boot loaders well until the phone companies get involved. Android is freedom and who doesn’t want to be free.

  • def bc of the customization of android! you can do things on this os that can be done on no other operating system including ios.

  • Francis Scardino

    thats pretty simple. Choice and Freedom to do what you want with your phone. There are others that allow it, but no mobile OS gives you the freedom to do what you want and how you want to do it. 

  • Androids far more developed and its technology is way further ahead than any other phone, even the iphone.

  • Am I too late? … yep.

  • You should switch to droid because deserts are better then apples everyday of the week

  • Because it’s not Apple! If you want to be told what to do go with them. If you have your own mind ANDROID RULES!!!

  • 4G LTE, done.

  • Because IPhones are for hipsters.

  • Anthony Hopf

    For the freedom of choice and the backup of Google and devs

  • 11knives

    Because apple sucks the creativity out of you. Oh… and it’s just that much cooler!

  • Because the OS is actually conductive to change and becoming better

  • ironick

    You get more for your money vs. I*hone.

  • Stability + Regular Updates = Win

  • JR

    Task management would be the biggest reason.  But face unlock is just cool.  

  • Alan T.

    You can use flash!

  • Danielsag

    Its not IOS

  • Because that’s what smart people do.

  • HelloWorld

    Customization, Open Source, Fastest Phones… Blah Blah Blah, All it matters are the delicious software names they come up with. =P

  • Why would I (I did) switch to Android?    First and foremost, CHOICE!  I love that I could choose from multiple different phones.  I can choose any number of available models or even carriers.   I love the availability of everything Android offers.  Android also looks to the FUTURE.  With the software updates more can be added (and fixed in some cases).

    CHOICE: There are models I love, from Droid X to upcoming Nexus.  There are lower end versions my Mother would be thrilled with when she upgrades her phone soon.   So far I convinced my Sister to change from her BlackBerry to Android and my Brother in Law from WebOS to Android.  My Mother is waiting for her upgrade to be due.  So many of my friends have switched from BlackBerry, iPhone, and Windows, to Android after showing then why I love my Android OS.

  • We have flash !
