The top 10 alternatives to Android OS
Google’s Android OS dominates more than 80% of the global smartphone market. Aside from its closest competitor, iOS (which is so closely tied to Apple that it can’t really be called a purely OS-based alternative) it can feel like there aren’t many alternatives on the market. This wasn’t always the case, as Nokia’s operating system once held a commanding portion of the space, as well as the now-defunct Symbian OS. While the wind is blowing decidedly in favour of Android-powered devices, there are a range of options out there for people who want greater privacy from Google, or just a change from the norm.
