Considering Switching to iPhone from Android – Seeking Advice

2: Seeker
2: Seeker

I've been a dedicated Android user for as long as I can remember, and I've never had the chance to use an iPhone or any Apple product outside of store displays. It's not due to any particular ideology; I simply couldn't justify the additional cost compared to the competition.

Now, with the recent shift of iPhones to USB-C, I'm genuinely contemplating making the switch for the first time. Given the massive popularity of iPhones, there must be something significant that attracts so many users.

I'm reaching out to the community for advice. What are some compelling reasons you think I should consider making the switch to iPhone? Conversely, are there any significant drawbacks or reasons why I might want to stick with Android? I'm eager to hear your experiences and insights. Thanks in advance for your input!

Hi @gillshreyas 

I think people like Apple products such as iPhones because they simply work and because they are all the same in regards to the software iOS a person who has used iPhones can pick up any iPhone and instantly know how to navigate around it. 

Their phone's are well made and customer support is exemplary. 

However the phone in some respects works as Apple wants it to for the owner. 

What I mean by this is that Android is open source thus allows more customisation in many ways. 

IOS is sandboxed thus not allowing as much customisation but that said Apple are starting to add more. 

The introduction of the USB-c isn't something Apple really wanted to do but had no choice if they wanted to keep selling iPhones around the world. 

For my wants and needs I prefer Android due to the customisation I can have thus having my phone work and look my way. 

Moving from one operating system to another can be daunting at first in regards to learning how one is different from the other known as am ecosystem however one soon adapts. 

Many years ago i moved from iPhones to Samsung and haven't looked back.

You can see what phone I use in my signature below. 

Maybe visit an Apple Store or Network Highstreet Store to get hands on with a working demo model to see what you think.

If I can be of any further help then please don't hesitate. Take care.  😎
