My Month With an Android: First Reactions

John Gholson on in UX



I should get this out of the way first – I’m no Apple diehard. I use whatever tech I like the most, which typically amounts to what tech has the best value or what tech is the most ubiquitous. I got an Apple device when I started designing apps, because there was a much greater demand for iPhone apps, not because I had to have the new hotness. It was a necessary decision that I don’t regret. I typically use my iPhone like a little laptop, probably like most of us do – playing games, poking around on social networks, watching videos, reading web content. I don’t get a lot of text messages and I rarely make or receive phone calls, but it’s still an indispensable tool in my daily life.

And then one day, my iPhone screen shattered into a million little pieces. It still works, but it’s like looking through a permanent spider-web. Kinda takes the fun out of things. I wasn’t ready to just go out and snag an iPhone 5, but my job affords me the opportunity to test drive new phones. We just happened to have an HTC One X available in the office for testing, so it was fate that I ended up testing my first Android for an extended period of time.
