Default New Phone: Apple vs Android

I am in the market for a new phone. I currently have an iPhone 5S and looking at the 6S, 7, or a Galaxy S7. I've never had an Android but have read great things about them, and looking to try it out. In some ways they are ahead of Apple/iPhone in my opinion. The one disadvantage is that I also own a Mac so it would mess up that 'Apple ecosystem' that is already in place.

But I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with any of these devices and would be willing to share your thoughts/suggestions. I am not looking to buy right now, just exploring my options. Thanks!

I replaced my Samsung S6s with Samsung S7s this past spring and have been pleased overall. My Apple products were all OK and all overpriced.

If you're a long time iPhone user, the Droid will take a lot of getting used to. I kept mine for 2 weeks and it just never grew on me. Back to a 5s now.

I would go with an LG v20, or wait until spring to get an s8. Hearing rumors that the s8 will have a 30mp camera.

If you like your previous iPhone and are comfortable with it then stick with it. Phones, much like Ford/Chevy are a personal preference, both have their pluses and minuses.

Default Re: New Phone: Apple vs Android

I've always had an Android and currently have the Samsung S7 edge. My girlfriend was an Apple user all the way up to when the S5 came out in 2014. For her the transition was much easier than expected, which I think was aided by my being there to troubleshoot. If you don't have a long time Android user, it may take a little while to get used to, but I rarely hear of someone who at least tries to learn it, feel really compelled to go back to Apple.

Default Re: New Phone: Apple vs Android

I agree with previous posts. Switching from apple to droid or vice versa is uncomfortable for at least a month. If you have the patience to stick it out, you'll like either one. If you like the system integration of your mac and your phone, it definitely will not work as well with android. apple will not play nice with anything by their own stuff. One of the reasons I keep my samsung is just to spite apple for being so snotty about their stuff. That, and the removable battery, expandable storage, s-pen and how well it connects to my tv. That said, I'm keeping my macbook and never getting another PC. I just wish all these tech companies would play nice and let consumers decide which products they want in each category and not intentionally make stuff incompatible just to force people to drink the full pitcher of their kool-aid.

Now you know that aint ever going to happen. They will force it down our throats until the last phone is bought. With that said, I prefer the Android, but nothing wrong with apple really. I guess it just pisses me off seeing people act like kids in a candy store everytime they release one that is the same as the previous lol

I am starting to lean more toward iOS since that's what I am more accustomed too. I am skeptical about not having a headphone jack on the 7 though.

I have a 7 plus coming in the mail. It should be fine. The new headphones connect via the lightening jack, and they have an adapter for the old headphones.

Plus I'm sure that now some off market company would be able to come out with a dual/split lightening jack so that you can have your headphones and phone plugged in at the same time. Doesn't seem too complicated?

My sister had the 5S and just upgraded to the 7 about a week ago. So far she's been happy with it, although she can't really tell me why it's better. I'm a droid guy myself, so I couldn't tell you why either lol.

As a software developer, I've had to become familiar with iOS, droid, and even Microsoft mobile devices. It really is just personal preference imo and as someone that doesn't like a lot of change, I would stick with what you're already comfortable with.

I just upgraded my iPhone 6 to the 7 and I love it. It's the little things about it that I really enjoy. I love the camera quality, the extra speaker provides great sound, iOS 10 is beautiful, and I haven't had any problems without having the aux port.
