One such invention is the smartphone, the more current device the more features and improvements it has. Android smartphones are highly demanded and has over 80% smartphones market share. However, there are few things that an Android smartphone is unable to do such as:

However, the latest Android phones get the notification very soon but some phones which are a year or more than one year older don’t receive the notification to make their phone up to date and enjoy the latest features even after several months. Some older phones receive new version updates, eventually, but some never do. When buy phone outright, do check which version of Android they can be updated to.

All Android phones don’t have fingerprint sensors which makes the users worried about their phone’s security, only the ones that come with Marshmallow have. And to improve the security of the phones, many manufacturers started to implement the feature themselves.
5. No Default Video Call Feature

But, not to mention, there are literally thousands of video call apps on Google Play Store.
