Even if a device dedicated to a particular function is usually best in its field, the smartphone offers an acceptable compromise that fits in a pocket. Paradoxically, it is also the success that has set back the iPhone, one model can not be sufficient to meet the expectations of an entire population. It was therefore a credible alternative, and has created Android, the Google system.
Now mature, it offers features and ergonomics like this with Apple’s advantage over customization and the disadvantage use a little less intuitive and offers downloadable content less well organized than in the AppStore.

Others try the difference with a smaller footprint or otherwise in excess by making the junction with the tablets.
