Of course we know, there are even more features that the iPhone does offer, but as an Android user, I found the need to talk about the things that I actually put into use while I used it as my daily.

ios wasn't easy for me at all lol. Recently switched from android and I must say the build quality is just fantastic. I have been an android fan and always will be but it doesn't hurt to try both worlds. (Although i got mind fcked with ios the first time i set it up) All great but I just love how iphones feel in the hands :D
The things Android has over IPhone are small trivial things in customization. Anyone can get used to that after a while. I’ve gone through a Pixel, S7 edge, and 7 plus. iOS is SO MUCH stabler than android. It’s faster, more respectable, lasts much longer, and the iOS basic look may be required but it isn’t that bad
Thank you. I was considering switching to iPhone 7 plus from note 5. All because iphone 7 plus jet black is sharp and pretty. But, I love the flexibility of customizing my phone. Thanks to this honest video I did not waste $900.
Im an iphone fangirl, not an apple fangirl. I still cant justify the overpriced macbooks (especially the mbp, that is the one that i would use) But i work in advertising/social media. I need a good reliable phone, and the it's super intuitive, it's just easy to use. I get the lack of options but that's just what i want; a phone that i don't wish to make changes to. Also, all the "hype" "trendy" stuff is usually available first on IOS, and for my work that's a must, to be able to try everything right away. And the camera is great. Also, ive never had the latest iphone, i bought the 6 when the 6S came out, and i bought the 6S just a few weeks ago (just because my 6 got stolen), i was using my old phone at full capacity, never felt it was _old_ or slower. And it was in great condition after almost 3 years of using it. Everytime i've used an android i can feel it getting outdated. In the other hand, my laptop is a Dell XPS 15, i can upgrade a lot of the specs, and the price is way easier to justify, my previous laptop lasted me for 6 years so... totally worth it.
At the end of the day, i think an outdated iphone (say a 5S or a 6) will beat a lot of the cheaper androids, at the same pricetag and they become great "budget" phones, if you are looking for the latest and better specs, and have the money for it, you'll probably find an Android that it's doing it better than Apple.
I used to love samsung and hate iPhone, but over the view years i've become curious why people loved it so much, surely it couldn't ONLY be because they were so brainwashed by Apple and the apple eco system..
After selling my S7 edge (A couple of things were wrong with the device imo, like it got way too hot way too fast.) i purchased an iphone 7 plus (red) and it's a great device, i don't know why i even hated on Apple.
The 2 companies are so similar yet so different. They both have their pros and cons. I don't see any reason to fight over them.
It's all about preference.
Here's why I never buy iPhone no fast charging wireless charging ir blaster lack of features I don't care how fast Apple is I take features over speed you can't download movies or music on Apple unless you use iTunes
You call that fast? My smartphone doesn't even have a transition window, it goes instantly into the app. It doesn't leave me time to go back to the home screen, that's what I call a fast smartphone. IPhone is as slow as shit, only your finger was fast.
the main reason why I left the galaxy / android to ios/ 7+. Speed, speed, and fucking speed. So sick of the lagging android OS. Battery life is top notch as well. I probably go through 25% in a 10 hour work shift. thats texting, playing games, youtube, all that crap.
And how does NO ONE state in their reviews that the iphone comes with a fucking 3.5mm adapter to give people their precious headphone jack? Its literally not a big deal.
I've had a lot of lag problems with ALL my samsung devices. I judt recently upgraded to an S7 Edge hoping to see those problems leave, but nope! On the contrary, my device heats up when I use my data, play games, and the home sometimes gets laggy. But other than that, I have no issues with my S7. I actually might get an iPhone just for the new experience. Thanks for the review!
I think iOS is pretty great, but some actions that shouldn't take more than a second to perform take quite long , unnecessarily so. Like selecting a wifi network, which requires the user to go to the settings app and tapping on wifi, then selecting a network... or having to keep apps like Google Photos or OneDrive open so that the photo library uploads can work, or having to keep the screen on while downloading something to prevent the system from shutting it down, etc etc. Simple stuff made complicated.
They both have their edges.
Best thing about Android:
- Being able to download apps, music, and videos from the internet.
Worst things about android:
- Lack of support. Most phones receive only one or two upgrades to the newer android os.
- Even the flagship phones begin to lag substantially after a year or two.
Best thing about iPhone:
- It's functional and simple to use. Messages, FaceTime works better.
- The whole apple ecosystem is smoothly connected. Macs to iPhones to iPads to Watches.
- Better app and software support for older devices. Even though things slow down, the phones remain very usable years after years.
Worst things about iPhones:
- Can't download third party apps or anything from the internet.
I have used the best android phones as well as the latest iPhones. To me, iPhones seems to meet my priorities. I like the openness of android but hate it when I have to factory reset my device in order to get it working properly after installing few apps. This is what my experience was for both iPhones and android. I would love to see android catch up with Apple with the new pixel devices.
Just switched to Apple last Saturday after being an Android user for the rest of my life. It was hard to get familiarized with my iPhone 7 plus the first couple of days but like always once you've broken into something new everything should just be fine. I'm enjoying my phone very well
samsung s8, Oneplus 3t.. and many phones is faster than iphone 7. Google pixel, galaxy s8, HTC u11 have better camera. many phones have bigger battery, better displays , better speakers,...and many features what iphone never have. ( infra port, thermal camera, fast charging, bezeless display, and CUSTOMABLE SYSTEM.. changing icons, cpu speed, display corners, animations, boot screens, ............many many.. ) Hard users cant have that stupid OS like iphone has. I want to have my own phone. Phone what reflect who i am.
I switched to iPhone because i was really disappointed with my Samsung s4 because after the first year it got really slow and hard to use. I want to go back to android but I don't want to put up with laggy phones and I haven't had that with my iphone.
i am before using iphone 6s plus I realy hate iphones now iam using galaxy s8 I am very happy to using this phone good battery bakup good camara and the lot of custamisation also.....
I dont no why people waist the money for iphone buying
As an apple user, I enjoyed this video. As i've said many times before, it boils down to what you need in a phone. I personally don't need the customisation and diversity android has to offer. I'm using a Samsung as my side device for almost a year now and I don't need the customisation possibilities it offers. Tried installing some widgets...nothing spectacular, a clock widget and a weather widget but what I found wasn't what I expected. Many apps weren't so polished as I've wished so I ditched my search for widgets. As far as I notice, android isn't equal to everyone, it depends very much on the manufacturer you buy and the stock apps they supply. Those apps tend to be the most used, with some exceptions from notable developers. That's also true on ios where, if you dig into the app store you find pretty janky apps. But as a whole, I wouldn't want to stick to a 3-4yr old android. On the other hand, a 3-4yr old iphone feels more up to date. I'm using a Samsung XCover 3 and had an iPhone 5s alongside it until march when I upgraded. I wouldn't have switched although performance was on par and the Samsung felt snappier. Games was the point where the 5s was ahead.
If someone wants a good phone, there's plenty to choose from in either camp. Look at your budget and your expectations from a device and choose accordingly. You won't miss out on anything regardless.
I use an iPhone because Apple customer support is the best in the world. No android OEM comes close. They just sell you the phone and kick you out. They don't update their devices for 5 years plus like Apple.
I had always stuck with iphone but material design persuaded me away from IOS. Until then android was down and out ugly imo. Lots of disjointed ugly fonts and mix and match layouts setting of my ocd haha ,but I couldn't go back to IOS now after having the freedom of android. My next phone I think will be a pixel as I prefer the clean, stock look. I think Google have truly upped their game Lollipop onwards.
serious question: do you still need iTunes to transfer files? and can you transfer anything other than videos, photos and apps? I like plugging in my phone to any computer, and accessing anything on my phone with no problem.
I fuck with apple cause it does what I need from a cell phone... yes I have had android too. Just like apple better and the company is based right here in northern Cali always willing to support a company in America over it being across the water.
I myself find android much more useful for me... I live in an android environment... So using IOS just seems... Meh... Primarily because its so difficult to use bluetooth from android to ios (even using ShareIT is becoming a burden with different OS) and lets be honest... You can now get cheap android with flagship speed that is not really behind the IP7...
