You may have heard geeks talk about ‘stock Android’. Have you ever wondered what they mean? Stock Android is essentially just ‘Pure’ Android, with no skins/overlay on top of it. Google devices like the Nexus range, and to a great extent the Moto X, and the Moto G, are all based on stock Android. People using the Samsung, HTC, LG or Sony smartphones and tablets aren’t using stock Android, because the software in their devices are essentially a themed versions of stock Android flavored further with more features and bloats to be simplified.
Enough talk about what it is, let’s take a look why it’s the best!
- It is Stock – Meaning no creepy overlay on top of it, so it’s the fastest amongst all!
- Fluid Experience – No lag, whatsoever could be noticed on Stock Android, While other UI’s like TouchWiz, FunTouch OS, will lag a little bit here and there.
- Easier than ever – It’s stock, meaning there’s nothing too complicated about it. Everything is super-simple to use, with huge and beautiful icons.
- No Excess Dump – There is no additional apps from the manufacturer like the ‘S’ Apps, so its a clean User-Interface with no need to ‘hide’ apps to make it look clean
Obviously, you might say why choose Stock Android, and not the others? No offence, but the Samsung’s TouchWiz has a ton of features while compared to Google’s Stock Android! Stock Android is checked and reviewed strictly before its release, so there are no noticeable bugs, whatsoever. Also, Stock Android isn’t too hard work to design, so it’s updates are the first! While other UI’s may take up a month or two to release the same update in their style.
So, after reading this article, this may have changed your mind! If you are very particular about perfection in the software of a device, Stock Android’s for you!
