Once upon a time, the debate over smartphones was a lot more hotly contested than it is currently. These days most companies are moving towards a more homogenous look and feel — with each passing year, smartphones are beginning to look and perform a lot more like each other than previous iterations. Essentially, they all make powerful sleek rectangles.

We have reached a point where all major smartphones are continuously reaching insane levels of specs in all areas. Cameras, screen fidelity, battery life — it’s all increasing in quality at an exponential rate, and we’re all the beneficiaries of this technological arms race.

So the question of whether one should opt for an Android or a competitor becomes more a matter of ecosystems, rather than hardware. For years, certain predominant all-encompassing ecosystems have sucked in many a lay consumer purely out of convenience. Sacrificing the superior customisability of Androids because some ecosystems are just “easier”.

People become invested in a platform purely out of convenience, so even though a competitor might be offering products more suited to creative needs, some may be reluctant as it’s just too hard. But Androids connect as intelligently as any other ecosystem. Samsung, for example, has a seamlessly connecting ecosystem.

Products like the Samsung Galaxy Buds2 and the Galaxy Watch4 allow users to block out the world seamlessly with active noise cancelling and the ability to control the entire ecosystem from a tap of a watch. 

With the Galaxy S22 Series, users can easily capture high-quality photos with the pro-grade cameras or capture professional-level audio, and then take that content and utilise the full potential of a digital canvas via the Galaxy Tab S8 (with the smooth, natural flow of the S-Pen). This all connect seamlessly back to the S22 via Clip Studio Paint*.

With the Samsung ecosystem, you can work from anywhere. Whether you’re working from home, a cafe or a yoga studio, you can easily work productively with the Galaxy Tab S8. From split screening multiple apps with Multi Window, to transferring documents with ease between devices. 

Feeling inspired? Check out the vast range of devices in the Samsung Ecosystem for all your creative needs — so you can be you, your way.
