While the popularity of the iPhone is soaring, plenty of people are running with Android smartphones instead.
Android is the name of the operating system used on many smartphones and tablets.
It is owned by Google and was launched in 2007, the same year Apple released the first iPhone. It’s basically what appears on the screen on a touchscreen device. Apple’s iPhones run a different operating system called iOS, and they don’t run Android.
Google lets any company use Android, so you will find it on Google phones, but also phones made by Samsung, LG, Nokia and more.
We’ve picked out the best Android phone cases below to keep yours in mint condition for longer.
