Google’s own operating system Android has reached a very formidable place in the industry . It has become such that only iOS and Android devices take 90 % of the total market share. Both the operating systems are constantly competing with each other to see which one comes in top.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean brought some great improvements into the OS such as ‘Project Butter’ which offers 60fps and Google’s own , awesome , voice assistant , Google Now . It also brought offline typing into the arena , something which is quite revolutionary.
Android can certainly be improved in many ways and here we highlight the top features on our wish list
Starting from the bottom -
5 . A smoother , easier to use experience.
iOS is extremely smooth and offers a great experience. The Jelly Bean update has bean able to successfully match the smoothness of iOS with Project Butter which brings 60fps into the game. We want android to step up their game further. An absolutely lovely , silky smooth experience with no slow downs is what we yearn for. Also , another reason , iOS is preferred for newer users is its ease of use , we wish that Android have different modes – depending on the usage . What an exquisite feature is what this would be. A beginner , intermediate and a pro mode , for different kind of users would definitely improve its reach.
4. Gesture led interface.
The S3 offers amazing features utilizing in an amazing , innovative way , the proximity and ambient light sensors . The phone becomes smarter , tenfold. Also , it will make the phone feel more natural and intuitve. Phablets ( The Note ) would especially be benefitted by this , with multi finger touchscreen interfaces for a variety of tasks .
3. A complete UI overhaul.
The android definitely needs a proper UI overhaul as they have maintained the same look since quite a long time . Sure , the Ice cream Sandwich update changed the UI a bit , making it look much better , however , we would love it if Android introduced something new , such as the Windows Phone UI . Also , something that made it easier to use , much easier.
2. Voice , with enhanced features and broader accessibility.
An update to Google Now allowing it to do everything – launch apps , play specific music , play movies , everything else , just by the sound of the your voice. Also , if Google Now would be able to give smart answers and display scores of more sports , we would be greatly overjoyed. Also , more things could be done offline , with voice , like texting and launching apps from Google Now . Also , more language packs for offline typing would be greatly appreciated.
1. More efficient multitasking and related innovation.
Android already has efficient multitasking and more importantly , TRUEmultitasking . However , this leads , sometimes , to the whole UI becoming laggy and somewhat non – responsive at times. An efficient multitasking mechanism would definitely uplift the android experience . Also , innovations like a clipboard with multiple copy which would allow more than one piece of text etc. would be a great relief to bloggers and social networkers.
Rumours suggest that Key Lime Pie will be coming this November on the LG Optimus Nexus G , a leaked device , but remember , these are just rumours.
