WHY TO USE WHATSAPP OVER HIKE?- TECHNOLOGY

  WHY TO USE WHATSAPP?

Social media plays a very important in our life. We use them everyday and can't afford live without it for a day. Whenever we hear the name of social media, first name comes to our mind is Facebook, which is not the most usable social media application. The social media application which we use the most is WhatsApp.
WHY TO USE WHATSAPP OVER HIKE?

WhatsApp replaced the messenger in our mobile phones and allows us to send the text message and multimedia message without charging a single penny. WhatsApp was found about 9 years ago from now and haven't been replaced since then. But im 2012, another messaging app, Hike was launched with more features than WhatsApp and has more built-in features than WhatsApp and it was said that Hike will replace it but it didn't happened! Why? 

ADVANTAGE OF WHATSAPP!

Here's the reason!

i) SIMPLICITY:

Simplicity matters a lot to many users and WhatsApp has advantage over simplicity as compared to Hike. WhatsApp has very clear, smooth and simple UI which won't create confusion to the users. On the other hand, Hike is complicated for some users. Hike had tried to introduce the wall like Facebook but it is not that good. The messages menu, chat menu is very straight forward to WhatsApp users but its not the same for Hike.

ii) SECURITY:

Security is one of the main factors while choosing any application and WhatsApp is best in it. I am not saying that Hike isn't secure but WhatsApp is better. The end to end encryption in WhatsApp is just awesome in terms of privacy. No matter what will happen in future, your message can't be seen by any other people(hackers) and also it won't be revealed to any of the agencies(Govt.) while Hike's messages can be revealed to the Government(in some extreme case) or anyone can get access to your messages.

iii) AVAILABILITY:

The main attractive thing social media is its availability so that we can connect to more number of people. WhatsApp is available for many mobile phones, i.e. from simple multimedia phones to smartphones. Few years ago, I was using Nokia 206 as my secondary mobile phone and at that time I came to know about WhatsApp availability reach. On the other hand, Hike is not available on simple multimedia mobile phones. Hike is available only on Smartphone OS which might not be accessible to many people who are not using smartphones.

iv) STORAGE:

WhatsApp is also very light compared to Hike. We can't ignore the fact that WhatsApp can't be moved to external storage but still it takes very less storage as compared to Hike. Hike, being a heavy app(compared to WhatsApp) occupy much more memory. The reason behind this is Hike's additional software. Hike is loaded with AI, light games, news app, memes and currently they have added a blue packet(which let you earn money through Hike) which let Hike to use more RAM and storage as compared to WhatsApp and consequently it slows down the phone with less storage and RAM.

v) ALTERNATIVE:

Consider that you have a mobile phone which has 4GB of storage with 512MB of RAM and its already has photos and videos in it and now you want to use social media app. Will you download it or not?.. Obviously not! But you will obviously find the alternative way of using those apps. Here comes the alternative way to use social media app.

You will find that all the social media apps has its browser version for those who can't use apps. Similarly, WhatsApp can be accessed through WhatsApp web whereas Hike can not. This is very major factor that makes WhatsApp better than Hike.





vi) WHATSAPP CALLING:

Who don't love free high quality calls? WhatsApp call is one of them. Hike also provides the facility to call over internet but WhatsApp calling feature is just of another class. Also, the video chat on WhatsApp is of top class and it will be injustice for it to compare it with Hike video calling quality.

vi) WORLD WIDE FRIENDS!:

We always like experimenting and try to make our life better and so does app developers. Developers make many application where we can share our group link and from that invitation link many people throughout the world can join that group and in this way we can make many friends.





That's the differences or we can say advantage of using WhatsApp over Hike. But many people will say that Hike allows us to send more heavy media files through Hike, i.e. up to 100MB but tell me one thing, who shares a media file of over 20 MB on any messenger? For your information the world average to share a file is 13 MB.

They say Hike has 'Hide Chat' feature... But tell me one thing, who will use that 'Hide chat' feature when you will use App lock?

The only advantage Hike has over WhatsApp is the sticker but WhatsApp is going bring the stickers soon.

Share it!!!
