Android Services

Smartphone manufacturers find it very challenging to ensure that their devices are up-to-date with the latest variations of Android. While they have to make sure that their devices can support the latest version of the Android OS, they also have to ensure that their devices have the latest hardware in order to make complete use of the features that the newer versions enable. For example, if the latest version of Android provides mirroring technologies then the smart phone's hardware must also be able to support this. Hence, a major challenge that smartphone manufacturers go through is getting the latest handset to the market and in time with the release of a new version of Android. Even though software updates are important for OEMs to ensure that consumers have the latest operating systems, the presence of older hardware in devices can compromise on the device's overall performance.
