Android One , Android Go and Android - Which One Should You Go For ? 1
This is an extract from the article I wrote for Pulse Nigeria here –


Android One , Android Go and Android - Which One Should You Go For ? 2
The Android Operating system has grown at such a rate
that 7 out of 10 person’s use an Android phone. It seems Google’s masterplan is
actually working. Now I know if you aren’t the Tech kind of person there’s
still a chance you’ve heard Android is named alphabetically after desserts.
Android
Versions
Android 1.6. Donut.
Android 2.1. Eclair.
 Android 2.2.
Froyo.
 Android 2.3.
Gingerbread.
 Android 3.0.
Honeycomb.
Android 4.0. Ice Cream Sandwich.
 Android 4.1.
Jelly Bean.
 Android 4.4.
KitKat.
Android 5.0 Lollipop
Android 6.0 Marshmallow
Android 7.0 Nougat
Android 8.0 Oreo
Android 9.0 – That hasn’t been named yet but I’m
guessing It’s Peppermint
Now you’ve looked at the list there’s no Android Go
and there’s no Android One, it looks confusing but you shouldn’t get confused.
Android One and Android Go are variants not versions of the Android OS and in
this post I’ll be explaining these variants and when you should go for each
one.
Android Go
I’m starting with this because it’s the most recent
variant of Android. Android Go is basically a stripped down version of the
mainstream Android OS; you can call it a lightweight version of the Android OS.
It comes with light weight apps and has a data saving feature that effectively
reduces data usage all around the phone to make sure the device runs smoothly.
Android Go is targeted at devices with 1GB RAM or lesser. The initial devices
that ran on 1 GB RAM and lower on the normal Android OS struggled to keep up
and sometimes kept freezing constantly so Google came up with a solution to
deal with it by developing Android Go.
Phones running on Android Go get constant updates from
Google and If you have a low budget but wish to keep up with the latest updates
in the Android world then Go is definitely your choice.
Android One
One of the annoying things smartphone manufacturers
usually do in most phones is to pre install bloatware; apps that aren’t needed.
These apps take up the space in the device without adding any value to it.
Android One takes all of that away by giving you a clean stock android
experience.
Android One Phones are also supported by Google and
get updates periodically for a period of two years and I believe most people
don’t use phones that long, I don’t use phones for more than 6 months
personally.  If you’re looking for a
phone that has no bloatware but has at least 2 GB RAM, then an Android One
Smartphone is your best bet.
Android OS
Depending on the manufacturer, the regular android OS
will come with 3rd party pre-installed apps, a customized UI – XUI
for Infinix, MIUI for Xiaomi, HiOS for Tecno and lots of other amazing UI’s.
This offers everything Android has to offer with no
limitations. If you love customizations and don’t really like a clean stock Android
experience, there are millions of mobile phones running on this to choose from.
Most Flagship de

vices run on this, so if you are
looking to get a tweaked UI with all of what Android has to Offer then go with
the regular android OS

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore 13

I woke up to a very disappointing news yesterday,Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore and believe me I was very upset about this move. This is coming at a time where Huawei is making changes to the Android market as we know it and Google revoked their licence based on mere accusations,

Accusations that haven’t been even proved to be true. This decision would probably worsen the trade war between China and the United States.

The consequences of this may end up affecting all technological markets and the world economy in general. Don’t forget that Huawei is the world’s second-largest seller of smartphones

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially

Newer devices from Huawei will not be able to install Android updates, or any Google apps, including Google Play Store and Gmail. However, you can simply access those Android updates through AOSP and GAPPs but without any support from Google.

Donald Trump had accused Huawei of working for the Chinese government, installing back doors in their networks and devices to facilitate surveillance, without any evidence at all.

This made the senior manager of Huawei get arrested a few months ago. Since then, both China and the United States have imposed tariffs on their respective products. Recently, the Trump Administration added the Chinese brand Huawei to the blacklist of the Department of Commerce, hence, forcing American companies to stop having commercial relations with Huawei.

However, according to Reuters, Google is the first to comply with the recently approved law, but other US companies that have commercial relations with Huawei, like Qualcomm, Intel, NVIDIA, will have to make a similar decision.
