This saturation is often a cause for controversy because Apple uses this to their advantage in promoting their OS adoption rate. But unlike Apple, Android as an OS is adopted by lots of manufacturers, big and small ones. Therein comes the philosophy of a centralized device from the stables of Google themselves named the Pixel. In many ways, it is Google’s answer to the dictatorship of Apple’s iPhones and their device philosophies.
