Before the launch of Android OS, there was very less you could do with your mobile phone. There were no high-end games, no big screens, and the touch screens phones were very limited. Earlier you had to struggle a lot to get to the option you are looking for, but with Android, it’s all the way simpler and better.
There are many other things that Android is responsible for, one such thing is downloading torrents on Android with any torrent client for Android. There are dozens of free torrent clients for Android available in the Play Store today, we will discuss the 5 of the top opens (in my opinion).
