    Whаt аdvаntаgеs dоеs Сhrоmе ОS hаvе оvеr аndrоid?

    I think thаt
    Сhrоmе stоrеs yоur prоfilе, prеfеrеnсеs аnd аpp dаtа in thе сlоud, tо еnаblе ассеss frоm аnywhеrе.
    Аndrоid stоrеs this оn thе dеviсе оnly.
    Сhrоmе ОS is lеss frаgmеntеd thаn аndrоid.
    еvеry nеw rеlеаsе оf сhrоmе оS will wоrk wеll оn еvеry сhrоmеbооk.
    Сhrоmе ОS is vеry sесurе, rесеntly it wаs unаblе tо bе hасkеd аt pwn2оwn.
    Сhrоmе ОS is оptimisеd fоr kеybоаrd аnd mоusе.

    I landed on this thread seeking answer. Thanks for doing a comparison. I have used Android devices, however, I have never tried Chrome OS. Are there are devices using Chrome OS apart from Google Chromebook?

    The Chromium OS is basically the Open Source version of Chrome OS. Google does not provide people with the latests build for ChromeOS but you can get builds for Chromium OS and install them on any computer to turn an old laptop into a Chromebook. You could do this in order to give new live to old hardware. You could also build ChromeOS yourself if you are so technically savvy and inclined.

    So, yes, you could turn an old laptop, even an old desktop into a Chromebook.

    I don't think all that holds true. I am using Android and:

    Android stores my profile, etc in my Google account, so when I get a new Android device, when I log into my Google account, I can set it up with my profile and preferences which have been saved, even my calendar notes;

    I haven't done any defragging on my Android devices so I cannot say if its fragmented at all. However, since the storage is in memory, fragmentation is of little consequence;

    Every new release of Android works on all Android devices built for it. This is the way things are going forward. There is no way that a new operating system will work on old hardware which does not have the capability to handle it;

    I haven't had any problem with viruses yet on my Android devices;

    The Android devices I use can use both keyboards and mice, plus the touch screen, of course;

    Naturally, I am speaking from personal experience. My experience may be different from other people's.
