Android is being used throughout the organization on mobile and tablet devices. It helps in standardization of features and apps throughout. Android is also being used on desktops of developers under virtual machine environment for testing the implementation and usage of their mobile apps to ensure the effective quality management.
  • Huge collection of supported free apps in Play Store.
  • Supports a wide range of devices.
  • Extremely customizable.
  • Available for mobile and tablet devices, even for desktops and virtual machines.
  • Lacking in maturity in terms of security handling and ecosystem.
  • Lacking in quality management of apps in Play Store.
  • Lacking in virus protection.
  • Lacking in battery management- several background apps keep running and eating the power.

Our organization currently uses the Android operating system for company mobile devices in every department. Some users prefer comparable operating systems, but overall Android is an easy-to-use software for all users and allows flexibility for all our devices. Privacy controls are an important aspect of our decision making and so far we have not experienced any issues. Donor, volunteer, and staff information are secured at all times. We even have one employee who requires hearing aid services, which is offered with Android.
  • Custom apps.
  • Great security.
  • Multi-device compatibility.
  • Issues with bugs in upgrades.
  • Quick battery drain.
  • Overheating issues.
Android is a great solution for our users for communicating through calls and texts, however, we have a slower response time through web browsers than with other products used in the past. These issues are minimal and overall we are happy with Android products. We are unable however to use Apple Pay and other comparable apps that are popular at this time.
There have been only two times that I have needed to contact Android support for technical issues and both times I received some support. I received more helpful tips from Youtube, so I now bypass support and try to do most of our troubleshooting on my own with these support videos online.

The Android operating system is one of the best systems that I have used. It is simple and robust and I love it. I know a lot of people that are using Android and they love it as well. And the Android SDK gives us the possibility to create amazing apps. Since Android 5 (Lollipop), we can build beautiful apps thanks to Material Design rules.
  • Customization.
  • Very easy to use.
  • Android SDK is great.
  • A lot of users.
  • More optimized for devices.
  • Offer updates for all of the phones.
  • It consumes a lot of memory.
Android is recommended for people who want to use a friendly operating system on their phones. It provides millions of apps and it has a lot of developers around the world.
But unfortunately, it has a lot of malicious apps. The user has to be careful with some apps even in the Play Store.
There are a lot of people that use Android around the world. There are many forums and blogs that you can read about Android. It is too easy to find information about the system and for developers, it is too easy to create an app. For me, it is one of the best operating systems.

In our organization, Android is mostly being used in the phones of our employees. Another place that we use it is on our Chromebooks. Chrome OS supports the use of the Google Play store, and so we are able to put Android apps on our Chromebooks for students to use. It makes it so we don't have to buy other iPads or android tablets for classroom use and to get the apps we want.
  • Android allows you to customize a lot of things.
  • Using Android SDK allows you to get apps not in the app store.
  • It is very affordable.
  • Can be tricky for some users if they've never used it before.
  • Not very good support.
Android is great if you are on a budget and can't purchase other operating systems for mobile devices. It is also great for installing third-party apps if you find one you like. Although there is a lot of customization options available, this may cause some users to become frustrated if they are unfamiliar with this system.
I've neither had super great nor super terrible support for Android. Since there are so many options within Android, their support team hasn't been able to always answer the questions that I have had. There has been more good than bad with their support so that is why I gave it a 7 instead of an even split 5.

We used it to build and deploy solutions for tracking and scanning delivers and products. and the affordability and cost of development/deployment is low.
  • Affordable and available on many types of devices.
  • Development and release is very convenient than other mobile platform.
  • Cost to enter is low especially when considering the hardware side.
  • Poor updates.
  • Provides very poor support.
  • Lack of support and developing/supporting for so many different versions is difficult.
Despite its flaws, it's still the optimum/cost-effective platform to bring solutions to business cases involving 1000's of users.
Documents are well documented and besides we will always find an answer from the community for most of the issues.

Android is used as an Operative System in my organization for most of the mobile devices like cellphones, tablets. Besides we have built an Android app for our customers. They can access to different options like forms and information.
  • Android systems are easy to use.
  • Android apps are easy to build and develop.
  • Android apps are easy to publish at Play Store.
  • Free android apps have a lot of publicity.
Android is excellent for running mobile apps. The Android Operating System is frequently updated.
I've not needed Android support.
