          Email sent! Congrats!

    • You know, I initially went android solely because I was anti-Apple.. Then when talking to friends about how awesome my phone was and its capabilities, they said their iPhone didnt have flash, turn by turn directions, and Swype…
      I made the right choice for the wrong reasons initially, but i made the BEST decision pre ordering my S3!

  • I’ve been a fan since day one.  Launch day G1, followed by the MyTouch 3g Slide, than the Droid 2.  Now I’m loving the Galaxy Nexus.  I don’t intend on straying from android ever.

  • I’m an Android fan(boy) because it gives me so many options. Can do so much without even needing root or custom ROMs. and, great community always there to help a sen out!

  • James Murphy

    I’m an Android fan because I can do almost anything with my G-Nex.

  • Simple. Android ROCKS!!!

  • For the customization of course

  • I’m an Android fan because of all the options I get to really make my phone my own, where every part of it is me and not just a big mess of icons.

  • I’m an android fan because its open source, and there are so many different models and handsets available, unlike the phone of a certain fruit we all know. I also appreciate the vast customization features and apps. There’s also a pretty large community if you want/need help with anything that you might want to do. Android FTW!

  • Scotty Brown

    So apparently, we broke Twitter. Awesome! <3

  • oryan_dunn

    Doh, they don’t make any cases for the Amaze 4G.

  • Deadeye37

    I’m an android fan because it is very open and customizable.  I can tweak pretty much everything on my phone so that it is exactly how I want it.  Also, there are a lot of phone manufactures, so I can find that perfect phone that looks, functions, and is priced how I want it.  No “my way or the highway” here.

  • Fernando Montenegro

    Why I’m Android fan? Because Android is the best mobile OS. Is pretty like iOS, easy to use, easy to install apps, customizable and all aspects and is from the big papa……… Google :) 

  • Altephore

    I love Android because there is no monopoly on hardware and open source rocks! You can’t beat Android’s level of customization!

  • I’m no fan, are you kidding me?!

    I love it, android is my life, my salary etc…

    Thank god(google) android exists.

  • Mark Sussman

    I’m an android fan because I am google integrated to the max!

  • Amy

    I’m an android fan because it’s open source and I don’t like being told what to do with my phone! 

  • I love Android because no matter how old my device is, someone has a recent rom for it. Still rocking the G1!

  • Jim

    I’m an android fan because it’s not apple.

  • Jason Joseph

    i love android b/c it has become my life.

  • Destroybabylon7

    I’m an Android fan because I’m an Artist and revolutionary thinker. Android is the perfect platform for those who wish to express themselves and learn of themselves.

  • Im an Android fan because of the open source which allows free thinking developers to make some awesome apps. and Cruizerlite to make cool cases

  • SDL

    I’m an Android fan due to open source. It’s cool to see something made for one specific device ported to work on other devices.

  • will

  • Android gives choice.

  • I’m an android fan because it is more open than all other OS’s for phones. And it’s not APPLE!! LOL

  • Bogart

    Because I don’t like being told what I want to do with my phone.

  • Inertiaman

    Because science.

  • I am with Android because I have big hands and a 3.5 screen wasn’t working for me. The note was made for people like me.

  • I’m an Android fan because I like having a choice.  I like the fact that I can buy almost any microUSB cable and be able to charge and sync my phone.  I like the fact I can log-in from almost any computer with an Internet access to download apps, books, and music without having to download software.  I like the fact that there are different models and sizes to choose from instead of being stuck with one particular model with one size.  I like the Android notification system.  Most of all, I like Android because I can personalize it however I want despite some CEO saying that Androids all look alike and the underdog operating system they chose allows them to be different when their homescreen looks exactly like all the other devices that use the same underdog operating system…  Choice is good!

  • JBLmobileG1

    Android is all about customization and that is exactly what I want on my phone. It is very cool to see how android develops, adding new features and functions that redefine mobile technology.

  • Georgioray

    I love Android because it’s completely customizable and who doesn’t love calling their OS Gingerbread or Ice Cream Sandwich and so forth?

  • Justin Hinkofer

    I’m an Android fan because it promotes individuality and customization. It allows people to be creative, make their phone unique, and set up their device to best serve their needs. 

  • Anjie Cai

    Because the s3 is so hot that it melts

  • sw4gd4ddy

    Android isnt just an operating system its a way of life. Between never being more then 20 mintues from a charger to figuring out if a dev has had a chance to make an android version of his successful ios app. Android has consumed my soul constantly looking for new roms and themes.  

  • GoogleFan2021

    Android is more open to developers than. Apple. Plus their arent one boring look like apple. Android comes in diverse devices. From small and quaint to Big and powerful. and all the colors of the rainbow.

  • Relkma

    I love android because it is the most customizable and fun to play with and free to do what you want os out there in my opinion!! Plus the community and developers make it even better!!

  • Because we are not Sheeple.  We believe in Choice, in Freedom, in Competition, in America!!!

  • HF

    Not Apple. Need i say more.

  • razor_vlade

    Im an android fan because it always delivers the best experience!

  • mike_hilly

    because Skynet was launched August 19, 2004. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?

  • because its powerful, simple to learn, and most importantly the apps

  • Nearmsp

    I am an  Android fan, because iPhone is not yet offered on T-mobile.

  • Because I prefer an Ice Cream Sandwich over a rotten Apple.

  • dayne517

    1) because the s3 is the sexiest phone ever

    2) because iProducts suck

    3) see second bullet

  • K Gaines

    Because if God gave me the choice of everlasting youth or all knowing wisdom… I’d be too busy searching my S Voice for “teach me how to Dougie” to hear him!

  • Francis2492

    You can run any app you want, hardware choose and customize

  • Ivan92116

    not having to deal with iTunes. 

  • Tjbear6

    It is simple, intuitive, and allows for freedom and innovation.

  • apps, apps, apps!

  • Terence Truong

    I am an Android fan because it gives more freedom to use your phone unlike how you need to jailbreak your iPhone. Wondershare is developing an iTunes like software that will work with Androids, and later iOS and Windows Phones. Also, there is a variety of Android phones compare to the iPhone where its sole proprietary phone made and design by Apple. Users want customization, yet easy to use. Android is that, it is developing and growing every single day. From Cupcake to Jellybeans, Android always make their codenames funny. I love Android. My twitter: @aznking100:twitter 

  • BlaydesEdge

    I use to deal only with Iphone & Itunes thinking it was the best, until a friend told me to stop spending money and start saving while getting more to enjoy. I am happy to say 4 years later I have totally forgot about my obsession with the other and I am sold with the convince and flexibility of the android. Android is by far the best OS around and anyone who says differently really hasn’t given it much of a chance. I will never go back so please keep the best coming! :-)

  • I’m sticking with android because of multiple reasons. First, the G1 was my first phone that had some actual features and yet didn’t enrage me to the point of breaking it(it died from being soaked in body wash). Then came along the G2, which was just perfect due to the amazing performance, and with it’s community enabling me to learn how to go into extremely deep customization that would be impossible on any other platform.

  • laphoneuser

    I love Android for three reasons:  Options, options, and more options.

  • dolphinschick21

    I’m an android fan because I love customizing my phone and I love how easy it is to do it. I love all of the apps for the phone and how easy the user interface is. And you can get all this without rooting your phone!! I am an android fan because the android community is awesome and google is amazing with their support. Android lets you have the most out of your device.

  • because i can access e-bay, facebook, twitter, etc and i get great navigation apps, too

  • I love android because of the open source and is not apple, plain and simple. :)

  • Keyan X

    I love Android because the community that surrounds it, is simply unbeatable

  • Luffypsp

    I love android because cruzerlite make cases for its devices.

  • N C C 4rm 831


  • C_ramirez06

    I love android because it just works. Great variety of phones not just the IPhone!

  • I’m a Android lover due to the apps, developers, roms galore available to us as a community!

  • I am an Andriod fan because it’s the best platform out there. 

  • Kelvin Jan

    I’m an Android fan because I love to customize. iOS is seriously just the most boring thing to look at and with all the great devs out there like Whitehawkx, who works on AOKP, roms like AOKP are just stunningly fast and customizeable. 

  • Craigers

    I’m an Android fan because of customization.  I’m an Apple fan, but you can’t beat the ability to customize your phone your way with Android.

  • I am an android fan because of its flexibility and nerd-friendly policies.

  • Andra Kenner Jr

    I am an android fan because of the revolutionary change of customization.

  • I am an Android fan because in a time where corporations are looking at the bottom dollar, Android was a push for something beyond money.  It was an attempt to really bring something to the masses that was not there before. I’m an Android user since the G1.

  • Customization and app selection.

  • epauli

    I like to customize and play with settings and set my phone up the way I like it.  I like the apps and the google integration.  Overall, Android let’s me have FUN with my phone!

  • morrm1

    I love the customization, the ease of developing apps and the variation of hardware (unlike the iPhone… one device and that’s it)

  • Aaron Garrett

    Its faster, has a variety of options for phones, most commonly they have larger screens and it can be customized. Aka its better that the iPhone.

    • Scotty Brown


  • rjayTmoFan

    Short and simple: Android is everything that the other competitors are not! Open source, User/Nerd friendly, revolutionizing and never disappointing. 

  • Kewweb32125

    I’m n Android fan because it gives me the best option over IPhone.

  • Patrick Flynn

    Honestly… I like android for one reason: hackability! I can make my phone mine to the smallest details and squeeze more life out of it!

  • triangle8

    Definitely the open platform that allows me to choose the type and size of device I want.

  • None

    I am an android fan because that is all TMO wants to sell me.

  •  I love the open *sourceness and customization of Android! I don’t see IPhones with widgets or another home launcher to customize…

  • TerryBerg

    Being a computer geek since I was 9 and a 386 was the latest and greatest, I have always had a love for gadgets. When the iPhone came out in 2007 I was one of the first ones to have it even though I was a long time windows/Linux fan and really don’t care for the Apple environment. When it came time for an upgrade the Galaxy s had just been announced and I was amazed at how awesome the phone looked and didn’t hesitate to purchase even with no android experience. I would NEVER go back to Apple coming from a free market open source OS that works so well. I would have to be crazy! I enjoy the fact that I can customize every facet of android… the app support is there and the phones offered are far better than Apples iPhone. What more could I ask for?

  • Aaron

    So everyone is thinking the same thing as myself… Customization. The fact that you can set up your home screen the way you want it whether it be with widgets, shortcuts or whatever, android us the best way to go, and the phone selection is absolutely insane. Can’t wait for more.

  • Lsjsjansnsn

    I like the cheapness and shitty apps that android offers and the really blazin slow speed, only thing good is that they can offer “4g” antennas

  • Pixiejonnie

    What i love about Android is the way that they bring the new technology that everyone wants and dont charge extra just because of the name of the product. with Android theres something for everyone.

  • Alishah Momin

    Let’s see….android is open source for the main reason, which allows for cool customizations and custom roms, more free apps, multiple high-end manufacturers, greatly superior hardware, etc.
    Hoping to get the GS3 soon! 

  • Spartanstew

    Been an Android/Google fan for several years due to their open source, their advancements, and just the fact that they’re Cool.   Unfortunately though, I don’t do twitter, so guess I can’t win.

  • chanjim

    It’s easy to gain root on Android, allowing full backup/restore, among other things!

  • Ben Stewart

    innovative, customizable, integrated – what more could you ask for?

  • I like them because u can make it your own. I love android ever since the first one came out, my first one was the G1, then the Galaxy S Vibrant and now hopefully the Galaxy S III.

  • i am an android fan because of all the pros it has against apple! also android is such an amazing software and brings out the true beauty in a smartphone.

  • Talltexanmike

    Been android fan and tmonews fan from day one.

  • Anand Gohil

    it would be nice to have a brand new G1 just to keep as a vintage type item

  • Is there anything better than Android ? Ummm, the answer is NOOOO!!!

  • Nahoou

    Because Android is just simply the best and most intuitive operating system ever. It has literally revolutionized the mobile platform of cellphone devices and is and always will be optimized to build upon itself to adapt, learn and become a leader amongst all tech operating systems.

  • Has Hlay

    Because Android is very easy to use and extremely customizable

  • Even_Steven805


  • Jeff Lambert

    I choose Android because it is so Open. For Example…something as simple as if I want a custom keyboard…well I have many to choose from. To the more involved – boot animations to custom roms + kernels.  I love the ability of a pretty much non restricted O.S. and Android is just that.  Android for me is a Hobby and I Love It!

  • The amazing community of people developing for it. The Devs are why android is the way it is today.

  • Greg Riley

    Android is simply the best OS period.  Open source and customizable, no other OS comes close…

  • Because I invented android…

  • Love its versatility of course! It fits the users who seek simplicity, fits hobbyists who seek to develop apps for it. Best of all, copying songs and movies to listen and watch is much more easier without having to convert!

  • Because Android is open, free and awesome!

  • Because of the awesome community behind all of the devices!

  • I’m an android fan because the versatility allows for nearly unlimited customization that blows iOS out of the water.

  • Jtoofaur

    Android was made for the ability to customize to a person,s liking and for users to do what they want to their device, not just to make money as Apple does numerous times.

  • I love Android because of its versatility and its power.  It’s easy to use, yet it can do everything I want it to do!

  • I’m an Android fan because it opened up doors for “options” & “freedom.” Android allowed a similar iPhone experience to be ran across ALL carriers (no matter postpaid, prepaid),  or whatever your price range & personal preference for device status (low-end, mid-end, & high-end) & on many manufacturers devices. This allowed for everyone to feel the Android love. Android with Google allowed for constant growth & innovation which came the improvements via. Android versions (ex: Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, etc.), giving users more features & the removal of many bugs & glitches. Android spawned lines like the G like via. T-Mobile which was great for the most part, & I always considered T-Mobile’s Nexus line in my opinion, lol, the MyTouch Line, & the DROID for Verizon. Android even brought the thought to be dead Sidekick line back for the Sidekick lovers (which I was one, even thou I didn’t pick up the Sidekick 4G), but I knew many who loved it. Android allowed me personally to become a smartphone user. I always had the money & smarts to be a smartphone user, but I felt like it was too unappealing to me & to business-like when their was just Windows Mobile (eww) & Blackberry (eh), Android allowed me to easily transition into the Smartphone line & love every bit of it. I have been able to do so much on my Android, watch videos, take pics on the go, stream music & video, load flash on websites, actually PLAY mobile games & love it just as much a console gaming & handheld gaming (Nintendo DS for example), take notes on the go, write poetry, & so much more. Also, with the addition of Android’s app, most apps are free, so I never really had to fork over half of my body just to enjoy a app, a lot of times there were free versions of the most popular apps, you just had to deal with a few ads, which is ok. Android has fed my love for individuality because of course it’s ran on different manufactures (samsung, htc, motorola, & etc.), all the themes, home alternatives, wallpapers, live wallpapers, so no Android is the same, so even if you have the same exact device, you still are “you” on your Android. In conclusion, Android finally brought “convenience” in the palm of my hands, especially with the HTC One S, I can now listen stream music whenever I want to, talk to my friends via. voice call, text, browse the internet, talk with my social networking buddies & express myself via. Twitter, Facebook, & Tumblr, feed my love for my obsession with taking pics of myself (being my personal digital camera on the go), & playing video games. Oh, & not to forget Android allowed me to speak to one of my favorite female artist/entertainers Ciara, because of the smartphone power my MyTouch 3G had 3 years ago with sending me a text message with the saynow number to call in, & all I had to do was touch the number on my phone & press call, & I got in quick to get in my call. Android personally is perfect for me, this is why I love Android.

  • I love android because of what it represents, freedom to do what you the owner of the device wants to do!

  • I love the flexibility and customization of android. Open-source allows for amazing things!


    I love android because it has great apps and personalization. It lets me put my phone the way I want it and not how everyone else has it. It can be unique and average depending on lifestyle and interest and likes. Since android has been out that is the only type of phone I buy, if it does not have android I don’t buy it and I’ve been threw many phones from the motolora cliq (first one) to the mytouch line (more then one mytouch) samsung vibrant and galaxy sii and the amaze.
