Student-Friendly Android Features You Won’t Find on iPhones
The Android vs. iPhones debate has been a prevalent issue among tech enthusiasts. People are constantly trying to figure out which has better features, but both have its own unique set of features that may prove useful depending on one's needs and preferences. At the end of the day, it's honestly up to the user to decide which kind of phone they're more comfortable using. iPhones have a cool and exclusive set of features you won't find in any other types of mobile phones (such as AirDrop and iCloud storage). On the other hand, Androids also have their own types of features that iPhones don't.
If you're heavily reliant on your Android mobile phones or gadgets for online learning (or if you're looking to acquire one for educational purposes), here are some exclusive features that might help you during your study sesh:
Any student will understand the struggle of multi-tasking. You will constantly need to access various apps and documents when you're trying to study. While you can easily switch between apps, it is still not the same when you have two "windows" open at the same time the way you could when you're using a computer.
Android phones have a split-screen functionality, called the multi-window support, which is super helpful if you need two apps or windows running at the same time on-screen. You can have a document open simultaneously with your notes for easier note-taking.
Picture in Picture feature.
Similar to the multi-window support feature, the Picture in Picture (PIP) feature of Android allows users to continue streaming certain video content while accessing other apps. In PIP, however, you have the video or image as an overlay at the bottom right of the screen instead of having it side by side with another app.
This feature allows users to acess or browse through other apps without having to exit the video they're trying to watch. This will prove especially helpful for online classes that make use of modules in video form.
Bluetooth (for file sharing).
iPhones have the exclusive AirDrop feature for tranferring and sharing files between different gadgets, but it's exclusive to Apple products only. Androids, on the other hand, allow users to freely share photos and files between different units, regardless of brand. Need to transfer a file between Android gadgets from two different brands or manufacturers? Bluetooth can easily assist you with that.
Easy file transfer.
Similarly, it's far easier to transfer files from your laptop into an Android phone. You simply have to plug it in the USB port and you can instantly start to drag and drop files as you wish. The process in iPhones might be a little more complex seeing as you'll need the iTunes app to transfer files between Apple devices.
While Apple has recently added a widget feature in its latest iOS versions, Android devices are less strict when it comes to customizing your screen with the widgets you need or often use. On iPhones, the widgets are neatly organized and limited to just one screen. Whereas on Android phones, you can customize the size as well as the placement of widgets on your phone screen for easier accessibility. If you have files that need to be easily opened or online articles you want to instantly read, freely customizing your widgets on an Android's home screen is a huge help.
The thing about iPhones is that you are only limited to a certain amount of storage, depending on the unit you chose to buy. And if you want bigger phone space, you'll have to shell out extra money to get a new model with more storage capacity. Sure, there's iCloud, but it could prove a struggle as well because you'll need internet connection to constantly be backing up your phone's files.
In Android phones, however, there is an option to access external storage because most units have a SD card port where you can easily plug in memory cards (which you can buy at a cheaper price point compared to getting a new phone altogether). You can store your e-books, files, and other school needs in this separate storage unit without the need for high-speed internet connectivity.

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
