No, if you have an Android smartphone, don't buy AirPods.
Since I first tried wireless headphones I have no longer been able to use conventional wired headphones. Its comfort and above all its good quality, are enough reasons not to reconnect headphones to the smartphone jack –If it has– and although as a general rule these devices are somewhat more expensive, the truth is that their use only brings advantages.
The truth is When you hear the word bluetooth headset, the first thing that comes to mind is Apple's AirPodsNot for nothing are they the most popular headphones and the ones with the largest market share.
However, one of the questions that you ask us the most is the following: I have an Android smartphone, Are AirPods worth it?
If you want some AirPods, better buy yourself an iPhone
As simple as that. Although it is possible you use AirPods with an Android smartphone, where all the virtues of Apple headphones are best used is with an iPhone device, as with other products such as the Huawei Free Buds Pro, which lose many functions when used with an Apple smartphone.
To begin with and although when using AirPods with an Android phone we will not notice any loss of sound quality or battery life, the truth is that we will not have some interesting functions such as automatic pairing. What is this? When we open the charging case of the AirPods and there is an iPhone nearby, it immediately recognizes them, which is not the case with an Android phone.
Another reason not to use AirPods with Android is that if we have its Pro version we will not have the automatic pause / play function that stops and starts the music automatically when we put on or do not remove the headphones from the ear. And we do not forget that to charge the AirPods we need a lightning cable ... What Android user has a cable of these to spare in the drawers? Well, nobody.
In short, the AirPods are still normal and ordinary wireless headphones if we use them with an Android smartphone. There is no doubt that the AirPods are among the best headphones on the market since they ooze quality on all four sides but honestly, there are better alternatives on the market if we have an Android device like the Huawei previously mentioned, the Galaxy Buds or the inexpensive Xiaomi or realme models.
