Is the Android OS bigger than the brand?
For the last two years, I’ve bought over half a dozen smartphones running Android OS and realized they came from different handset brands — Samsung, Sony-Ericsson, HTC and just recently LG (the Optimus 2X, my very first LG phone ever).
One thing came to mind — has Android grown so big it’s now even bigger than the handset brand? What I mean is that consumers will start trusting and/or buying devices not primarily because of the brand but because it’s running on Android.
My personal experience might be an isolated case but I’d like to hear what others think. Is Android OS a bigger influence than the handset brand when buying a smartphone?
