Which is better: Google Glass or Android?
On Google Glass, you can use the headset to view the world around you without needing to hold it in your hand.
On Android, you’ll need to hold the phone near the lens to use it, and it’s even more difficult to set up on an Android phone than it is on an iPhone or iPad.
Here’s how we compare them.
Android: The two headsets are fairly similar in terms of hardware.
Glass can operate as a standalone device, but Android requires a separate charging dock.
Glass uses a special glass-covered antenna to deliver signal to the device, and an infrared camera sits on top of it.
If you have an Android device, it’s possible to get your Glass attached to an HDMI cable to make it work with Android TV.
The Glass Lens app is compatible with Google Glass.
Google Glass uses Android OS features that aren’t present in Glass, like the ability to record videos.
But Google Glass has no built-in camera and lacks the ability for voice recognition, meaning it’s not the most powerful option for video recording.
Android is available as a smartphone or tablet, and Glass can be used on both.
The Google Glass Lens is available for $199.
Google has said that it plans to roll out Android Glass in “early 2018.”
