End-users won’t exactly notice the Android logo from their mobile phone’ splash screens but this is a start.
Expert analysts believe Google’s move goes to show that the company isn’t satisfied with the image the Android brand has. Unfortunately for the big search giant, companies that add excessive features to Android put the brand in a shadow. Consumers are thus sometimes less likely to know the operating system that actually powers their devices.
The Note Pro is a perfect example of such excessive changes. Samsung’s recent TouchWiz features not only upset Google but determined the company to impose rules to manufacturers using Android. Older Android powered devices are also expected to comply to this brand-new requirement in case of updates.
