“When will Grovemade make a wood case for my Android phone?” It’s a question we’re asked often, and it’s a good one. After all, Android devices are the most popular in the world. Last year, more than a billion Android devices were sold, which is nearly five times the number of recorded sales for Apple iOS devices during the same time period. Yet, regardless of Android’s seeming omnipresence, we are certain that we will never make a case for it now or in the future. Here’s why.
Android is an operating system and not a phone. Just as iOS powers the iPhone, Android runs Google's Nexus, but because its source code is completely open, it's also found on Samsung's Galaxy, Motorola's Moto, HTC's One, LG's G Series, and just about any other smartphone that is not an iPhone. In 2014 alone, Samsung, Motorola, HTC, and LG released a combined 135 new phones that, individually, do not sell exceptionally well compared to the iPhone.
