As crazy as it sounds, iMessage in itself makes me not want to leave Apple. I'm a huge fan of Android products, and love google ( I actually use google drive and photos over iCloud) - but the ease of sharing high quality videos via iMessage and air drop keeps me hooked. My friends and I just got back from Whistler B.C. One of us had an Android, the rest iPhones. Every time a video was shared in a group message with him it looked like it was from 1991. When that barrier is broken, good shot I jump ship.

Here I am in 2018 with a new LG V30 that I like alot. Being an Apple Smartphone owner since 2012, and frankly being rather bored of buiying what feels like the same phone again, and again. Being in the Silicon Valley all the people around here and infatuated with the Blue bubble, myself formerly included. iMessage will always be superior, and Apples keyboard is just flawless. I do miss a lot of things from my iPhone but I'm glad i broke out of the ecosystem (also own an iPad pro) and am figuring out this android lifestyle. The longer I've been away from iPhone the less I miss it. Lets get a few things straight though, Apple seems to have better reliability, Apps are built damn near flawless compared to androids versions (Snapchat/Instagram look horrible through android) But I've loved the freedom of my LG V30. Sure the selfie camera sucks, and the camera can be a bit laggy. But its so awesome to be able to have no restrictions. Plus that QUAD DAC thing called a headphone jack. HEll YES! (Despite it being on the top of the phone) The camera software is dope, Google play store isnt as bad as i thought it would be, and there is definitely an adjustment period. But I've finally enjoyed being on the other side. Too many people around here are walking iPeople hipsters. I never left iPhone because of one thing. iMessage. Now, its not so bad. sure texting isnt as seamless but it gets the job done. The LG V30 has plenty of faults, as did my iPhone 7. But I've enjoyed both phones for very different reasons. But god damn that LG V30 screen is pretty nice, and it doesnt have huge bezels like every iphone has had. And fuck iPhone X's face recognition. Fingerprint will always be superior, and more comfortable.

I am part of the apple ecosystem I had an android and windows back in 2014 but I had so many problems and i had the latest flagship at that time samsung galaxy s5. I also had an alienware desktop. I had been tempted to switch to apple at that time but I stuck with samsung and windows till the 6s came out. I saw the 6s and I tried it at my local apple store and that day i saw the simplicity of it and bought it and sold my s5 the same day. Then i had that for 6 months and bought an iMac but i still kept my alienware for gaming. Everything was so simple as all your information was tied together. Everything u do on ur phone happens on ur computer. I bought an apple watch because i found one on offer for $169.99 brand new and that worked seamlessly. Now i have an iMac pro and a macbook air when i travel. I also have an iPhone 8 plus, apple watch series 3 and an ipad pro. Everything works together which made me switch.

I think what might ultimately lead to consumers, like myself, leaving the ecosystem, is the price of the iPhone. It's true, there are "lower cost" iPhone models now, but most of the completely or more new products start out at over $800 bucks after taxes. MacBooks and iMac have a longevity reputation that Windows computers can't seem to match right now, but I don't know if the iPhone has the reputation. Thoughts anyone?

I haven't found another "family of products" that works so well anywhere else. Although I think soon Google will be a major competitor with their own line of products.

There is no such ecosystem. Google Music is far better, Assistant is far better, YouTube is far better...there is NO ecosystem, it's only fanboys. I carry both iPhone and Note 8 and most of the time carry Note 8. Why? Google ecosystem.

Wish dumb dumbs would stop saying the services Google offers are free. Your personal information is worth money, hence why Zuckerberg is rich af. Apple services like iCloud charge you in cash instead of data. I, like many, prefer this.

the ecosystem apple sucks you into is a costly one which makes them more money which is why they use their own proprietary connections... It's garbage.

Speaking of migrating from one to another it's much easier to go from android to apple then apple to android have noticed and I am the guy everyone goes to for tech advice and troubleshooting. apple users, I find, have the lowest technical knowledge.

Android has have all these features for years now. Apple is just playing catch up but at a high cost. I remember re-coding a NAS server in 2003 and now look where we are? NAs servers are pre made and pre coded with interconnectability with our smartphones

I kinda dont get the point. As a customer I DO want my tech to cooperate and apple has managed this best so far. I have recently bought macbook as my first apple device and I already see why (for average user) it actually is superior. The tech should serve you, not the other way around, it should work as smoothly as possible with minimal steps required from the user. Just compareing OS X to windows, the difference is huge, it actually is the best laptop for everyday usage (notice that Im saying this while not being hooked by the ecosystem). Its shameful that other manufacturers haven't gotten even close to what apple has going on. One more thing - google should have released their desktop OS years ago. If they did, I wouldnt have to switch to OS X. If they build their own laptops with their own OS, in the way apple does it, I would use that instead of macbook. Basically I would use anything just to ditch that fu***ing windows.

This video is like step one in AA meeting ... Hi my name is Steven and I have an Apple problem. Can never leave... too deep in. I have way to much content, apps and accessories that moving to a better phone is super expensive because of the sunk cost. And I am very aware of the fallacy. Leaving is a slow careful exercise that will take a long time.

I hate how Apple shoves their ecosystem down your throat. I would probably use an iPhone if Apple made it easy to use Google for everything. All I want to do is set my default Mail to Gmail, maps to Google maps, photos to Google Photos, etc etc. But Apple makes it impossible without jailbreaking.

iPhone user for a long time now, Just bought the pixel 2 Xl Comes in tomorrow. Hopefully I made the right decision! Been really frustrated with how Apple slows down the previous phones. and been having serious problems with mine. Hard to go spend $1,100 on a phone that they admit there going to throttle in a year or so... After watching your vids all week I’m really pumped for the pixel. Keep up the good work man! 👊

I know that tech people tend to have an affinity for Windows and Android because of the customization possibilities and when I was younger, I did too. But I don't have time for that any more. I recently built a new PC as a file server. Countless hours later I was still configuring - even after finishing the physical build. I finally just broke down and bought a Mac Mini. Worked right out of the box with almost no configuration. Even as a remote FTP server. Plus it works like a dream for interacting with the rest of the Macs in the house. ECO SYSTEM FTW

Apple knows a lot of its users are locked into this ecosystem. That's why they've been slowing their older iphone models. Because they know they that people will inevitably upgrade to another iPhone. This is a fucking scam in my opinion. But apple fanboys are too stupid to realize.

Only really a fan of the iPhones / iPads just purely because of iOS. The UI is simple and easy to use. Not a fan of Mac OS though. Also don’t really use the Apple services like Apple Music and tend not to use iCloud
Esteban Albanesi (3 days ago)
Marques, you say that we shouldn't get locked in an ecosystem and that's great. But its kinda tough to do when apple makes it so hard to get into! I mean, I use a windows pc and an android phone and I always have used windows (or ubuntu linux) and before that a symbian OS Nokia. But Apple makes it so hard to use just one of their products. I actually owned an ipod back in the day and it was fine to be used in windows but switching to an iphone for me is just out of the question.. first of all when I try using one I feel dumb since I cant figure out the UX right away coming from every version of Android.. then it forces me to do everything by their rules.. its just too bossy for me.. like you said.. its either all apple or nothing and I prefer a little diversity.. apple drives me away by wanting to pull me in. I'm not saying that the products are bad, in fact most of them are great and some better than what you can get in other ecosystems.. but I feel like apple wants to suck my blood!!
Esteban Albanesi (3 days ago)
Also I have to say that what apple did in the US is amazing.. folks just can't get enough of apple.. its sorta like a drug to most users.. thay need their fix! Most apple users are so blinded that they wont even consider something different even if its half the price with the same or better quality.. marketing rules!

Don't get me wrong I understand where you are coming from with the "don't be blind to other great products out there" but has anyone ever thought that maybe people like apple just because they are comfortable with it and its ecosystem. Nothing more nothing less.
Lars Leion (3 days ago)
I have actually never really cared for being tied to ecosystems. I've been drawed to solutions that can be used across devices. I recently got an iPhone SE for cheaps as a replacement for my Android, and I just received and answered my first call on my macbook. So. Smooth. And. Seamless. Man, I can feel the ecosystem grabbing me like the Kraken haha. Made me think of this video. I still feel the same way about ecosystems, but it'll honestly be hard for me to go back now.

Tim Harmer (3 days ago)
I've been a long time lover of Google and that won't change but the thing i really want to get rid of is Microsoft. Using a 5 year old laptop now (when new it was top spec) but every-time there is an update, something breaks or stops working. Also, why does one day my laptop works fine and the next day it takes an age to open a file! This is why I really want to integrate a iMac into my Google ecosystem. Is it easy to do?
