One Area Android Falls Short of iOS
As powerful as the Android platform is, one area it still falls short is a small but important one. Despite the fact Android rival, iOS has had the functionality for quite some time, Android still lacks a native solution for backing up your device. iOS gives their users the ability to back their devices up using iTunes. This means that in the event of a data loss or even a device replacement, iOS users can simply do a restore and once again have access to all their data. Android users on the other hand, have it a bit tougher. In the event of a data loss situation, Android users are up the proverbial creek without a paddle. True enough, it is possible to create a backup on Android using various methods involving root. The problem with this is, the average person doesn’t get involved with rooting their devices, and thus don’t have access to those solutions. As far as Android has come since its beginning, it has made very little progress in this department. There is no reason an Android user shouldn’t be able to backup their devices should they wish to. Hopefully in the future, Google will finally add this much needed functionality to the Android platform.
