I am currently an iphone user and am thinking of switching to android. Have any of you made the switch? If so what are your thoughts?
Poll would have been great but couldn’t figure out how to do that. lol

I played around with an anroid for about 5 minutes before I was ready to throw it into the wall (lol)–I have no patience. I love my iphone, but I also have an iMac & iPad, so they all connect seamlessly and make life easier more me.

I have a windows phone which works much like an iPhone with my PC. The only down side is that many apps aren’t made for my platform yet, and we’re pretty much last to get the new ones. I don’t use too many apps so its not a big deal for me, and I really like having the Office suite on my phone.

I’ve heard android is for people who don’t need something super easy to use. I have an android, I love it. Mostly, I would never switch to an iphone after a coworker told me she regrets doing it because now she can’t just download music. I guess everything has to be through itunes, which I assume means you have to buy every song? No thanks, I have a few music apps that I use just to play music on my phone when I work out or sleep or whenever, I’d be pissed if I couldn’t do that anymore.

I dislike all apple products. I love my husband’s Android, but I don’t have a smart phone myself. I’d definitely get an android though.

My DH LOVED Android–until he got an iPad. Now he can’t imagine going back!

I’m fine with either platform, but I prefer my iPhone to my husband’s Samsung. I also use Android on my Nexus and am fine with it but don’t see myself switching to an Android phone.

I hate the iPhone — DH has one, and I hate everything about it. I don’t know why, and I can’t explain it, but I will never buy one because of it. I have a droid, and I love, love, love it. I also rely heavily on google products, so the google integration on the droid is fantastic for me.

@futureSydow: I am an iphone girl. I attempted to switch to android and got the galaxy s4 and hated it. Im probably in the minority though lol. I vote iPhone all the way.

I’ve been an iPhone user for years. I tried to make the switch to the Galaxy S4 earlier this year and I absolutely HATED it. I felt like it was very messy and annoying to use. I returned it within the 14 day trial period. I tried to like it, but I really just missed my iPhone.

@soontobemrsm11: it does take more time to gather music. I have about 600 songs but that’s a collection made over a very long period of time and it’s transferred with me from phone to phone as I have upgraded. I like that I have one place where all my music is on itunes. So I don’t have to start over if I get a new phone. I don’t know how it is on android but when I did have one some years ago, when I switched phones I had to restart my music collections if I used an app for music. I use iheart radio at work and occasionally pandora too. the quality of sound on my iphone was way better than the s4 when it came to music. I totally don’t use all that the s4 had to offer though so it was just too much phone for me.

I have a Samsung S4 and love it. I hear some people say that it’s hard to use but I can use it just fine and I’m not that technology literate. It’s really big though. That’s the only drawback.
You know, every time I tried an Iphone, I simply cannot use it. I don’t know, I guess I just have the opposite problem from everyone.

@Cory_loves_this_girl: yay!! someone else who did the same thing! the people at the att store were so confused when I came in and was like “here take this shizz back! gimme the iphone 5 instead. I hate that s4” they were like whaaaaaat? really?! It was just too much going on. Being a lont time iPhone user and going to that it was just too much and it wasn’t nearly as user friendly as the iphone. that’s my opinion anyway

Great question. My droid is 3+ years old and is starting to go all wonky. It’s time to replace it, and I am overwhelmed by the options. Mr. LK has an iPhone for work and a Droid for personal use. He actually prefers the iPhone, but I think that may be because he has hated this particular Droid (the Razr) almost since he bought it. So I’m not sure if it’s a platform preference as much as it is a particular phone preference. But he says the iPhone (iPhone 4, to be exact) is faster, the apps are smoother, and the battery life is better than his Droid Razr. But he doesn’t like that the iPhone code is locked and that everything has to be “special” for it. He’s a tech guy by trade, and the exclusivity of Apple is off-putting to him. As an average consumer, I really could not care less about that aspect. So I think that when it’s time to go to the phone store, I will actually look at an iPhone this time and give it a chance to impress me. maybe it will, maybe it won’t. There’s only one way to find out!
Edit: I did read that the 5S did not score as well on durability tests as previous models. That does concern me because I am a klutz and drop my phone frequently. But apparently the OtterBox helps in this area, so I would likely buy one for my phone to protect it from me.

@stardustintheeyes: I totally agree! I hated how there seemed to be at least two ways to do everything. I just love the simple, user friendly, format of the iPhone. Plus I hated how bulky it was, it was uncomfortable to use. I’m getting my 5s next week!
