Para mi los impresindibles
Poder cambiar la bateria, poder poner almacenamiento adicional y los mas relevantes los widgets :)

Sorry Iphone Lovers :)

10. Alternate Keyboards

From text predictors like Swiftkey to the innovative like Swype and the downright adventurous like 8pen, you have a lot of different keyboard choices on Android. Typing on a tiny phone keyboard isn't anyone's idea of fun, so it's great that Android provides so many options to make it as painless for people as possible, and super easy to install. The iPhone has other keyboards, but they're usually separate apps that require you to import text to another program—it's just the kind of system-level functionality that's hard to get around.

9. Automation

One of the most powerful, useful Android apps around is Tasker, the automation program that lets you turn your phone into a superphone. You can turn settings on and off for certain applications, by location, time of day, and pretty much any other condition you can think of. With the right commands in place, Tasker can access the deepest and darkest settings on your phone, which is something you just can't do on other platforms. Be sure to also check out our second list of Tasker setups, three handy Tasker profiles from our readers, and how to roll your own "Find my iPhone" for Android. Similar apps like the battery-saving JuiceDefender would also fall into this category.

8. Custom Home Launchers

Full size
While iPhone users can customize their home screen quite a bit if they've jailbroken, they don't allow the kind of customization that you can get on Android with custom home launchers. Third party launchers can add all sorts of extra features to the home screens of your device, like gestures, different kinds of shortucts, and even low-level settings that can help speed up an older phone. Whether you're using the super-fast LauncherPro or the insanely customizable ADWLauncher, third-party launchers add a ton of configuration to your device.

7. Widgets

Sure, they take up a bit of space, but there's no substitute for the convenience of having a big weather widget right on your home screen, or a music widget to show you the currently playing track. Even more useful are the to-do list widgets, that take an "in your face" approach to productivity, which is not only effective but necessary from people, as they don't require you to actually look for your to-do list—they're always reminding you of what you need to do. If you've jailbroken, you can get widget-like apps for the iPhone, but you can only put them on your lock screen—not the actual home screens that you're always swiping through.

6. Removable Storage and Battery

Full size
It isn't part of the Android software, necessarily, but Android's open nature allows for quite a few hardware advantages too—namely the ability to take out, swap, and upgrade your battery and SD card. If you find that you've maxed out the storage on your iPhone, you're pretty much out of luck, whereas with an Android phone you can pop in a new SD card and have gigabytes more storage to play with. Similarly, you can swap out a spare battery for longer trips or even get an extended battery that'll help your phone go longer without charging. Photo by Hiroyuki Takeda.

5. Wireless App Installation

Browsing for and discovering new apps should be fun, not challenge to make it through a tiny app store with your sanity intact. The App Store and Cydia App Store aren't exactly fun to browse on your phone, but you either have to download apps on your phone or plug it into iTunes to sync them all over. With the new Android Market, or with third-party sites like AppBrain, you can find a cool app, hit the install button, and it'll be on your phone the next time you pick it up. It doesn't get much more convenient than that.

4. Custom ROMs

While there are a lot of third-party apps that give you advanced features on Android, one of the coolest parts about the entire OS being open source is that people can take it, tweak it all over, and install their version instead of the one that comes with your phone. Whether it's the feature-filled CyanogenMod or the interface-overhauling MIUI ROM, there's little limit to how much you can tweak your Android experience. As with launchers, these give you a lot of system-level tweaks that you just wouldn't be able to get this easily on other platforms—and it puts them easily within users' reach. Whether it's tweaks that speed up your phone or features like FM radio, custom ROMs are without a doubt one of the biggest advantages to Android's openness around.

3. Controlling Your Phone From Your Computer

This one's a little more out there, but we've featured quite a few apps that let you actually control your Android phone from your PC—whether you just want to send texts from Chrome or access any of its other functions right from a web browser. Yes, you can VNC into your iPhone, but it's not the same as using a separate app that accesses its baser functions.

2. Flash

Say what you want about Flash, but it's everywhere you go, and when you're forced to view the web without it, you realize how much you actually rely on it day-to-day. Whether its accessing fully Flash web sites, watching Flash videos, or playing games like the ones on Kongregate, having Flash installed on your phone and tablet let you access a lot of things you otherwise couldn't have. We may grimace when we hear its name, but it's too prevalent to go without. It just feels like you don't have the whole web at your fingertips.

1. True App Integration

Full size
Google Voice may finally be available for the iPhone, but the experience will never be the same as it is on Android. Other iPhone apps always direct you to the default dialer and visual voicemail apps, so even if you want to use Google Voice full time, you have to manually navigate it to yourself. On Android, apps like Google Voice integrate directly with the operating system—if you want to make calls with Google Voice, every call you make from the phone's dialer goes through Google Voice. When you click on a phone number in your browser or in Google Maps, it goes through Google Voice instead of sending you to the wrong dialer. True app integration like this makes using custom phone, SMS, voicemail, and even browser apps absolutely seamless on Android, which is something you won't find on the more locked-down iPhone platform.

Me gustan los Custome Launchers y los teclados a veces los del fabricante son basura en especial el xperia mini, los custome ROM's son una excelente opcion siempre y cuando el telefono de uno este soportado sino son un dolor, lo de la bateria estoy 99% seguro que no es android el que hace que se puedan cambiar las baterias jejeje pero bueno las baterias en la mayoria de los fabricantes con poco tiempo ya no guardan buena carga... si se compara con un iphone que por experiencia propia luego de años literalmente aun rinde bastante si se comparara con una bateria de otro celular sea o no android (Nokia son la excepcion... eso si es calidad en ese sentido) Widgets son un gasto de recursos aunque puede ser cool... en mi caso los evito a mas no poder, instalacion inalambrica de aplicaciones hay que sacarla de la lista ya que en iOS 5 ya se puede, controlar el cel remotamente tambien se puede pero requiere jailbreak asi que digamos que se puede quedar... Mobile Flash sorry pero apesta en grande, solo para videos... la memoria expansible me queda mis dudas, pues esta bien que se pueda expandir aunque el limite normal anda por los 32GBs el OS no es muy agil aun con estas, son lentas y las rapidas valen demaciado caras si las compararamos giga a giga con lo que costaria en un iphone; instalar apps en la tarjeta funciona pero no es del todo perfecto, prefiero sinceramente que tenga 32gbs internos que capacidad para expanderla y no porque los iphones si lo tengan creo que mas cel con android deberian tener esa capacidad interna o mayor y si le quieren adicionar memoria expandible pues excelente pero no me ha convencido hasta el momento utilizar este medio como base principal de almacenamiento


Por mas mala que sea la bateria uno la puede reemplazar cosa que NO puede hacer en un iphone.
Yo ando dos, y tengo un cargador de bateria y eso me da continuidad aun si tener encuche cerca.

Los widgets no hay que tener un monton, y mas bien ahorran bateria. El widget de control de energia me permite en un solo 'dedazo' desactivar o activar muchisimas funciones del telefono para ahorrar bateria.

Y con el almacenamiento externo igual es una gran ventaja sobre iphone, aunque si las aplicaciones corren mejor en el telefono puedo agregar el almacenamiento adicional para fotos, musica o en mi caso 8 distribuciones linux que tengo instaladas en la SD.

Yo antes no podía opinar ni del iphone ni de android, ahora si me puedo dar ese lujo :jojo.  Hay un sin fin de cosas que se pueden hacer en android, las apps son infinitas, llegará el dupia que pueda sacarle el jugo completamene a mi tablet.

Desde hace unos dias que un amigo se trajo un iphone desde usa, lo pudo usar un par de dias y luego se bloqueó des pues de hacer una actualizacion, tuvo que llevarlo a desbloquear y ahora quedó mira me y no me toques, porque si le da actualizar se le vuelve a bloquear.  Sus menus su per cerrados no permiten hacer mayor cambio en el escritorio, siempre es su per monótono.

Chaco, como se llama ese widget de la energia?

Yo estuve usando el iphone de mi hermano el fin de semana.
La pantalla a hoy me parece diminuta,
el sistema de notificaciones me parece desastrozo, por dicha ya en el nuevo Ios se lo copiaron a Android.

Me hacen falta los widgets y poder poner el launcher que yo quiera

Muerte al ibrick

También puede usar el control de go widgets

Con el widget de control de energia se puede configurar que las actualizaciones automaticas del market, y la sincronizacion de las cuentas se realice solo si se esta conectado en una red wifi, asi que este widget sin duda ahorra mucha batería.
