Should You Jump Ship From Android to iPhone?
You may have seen the "funny" infographics online welcoming iPhone users to the "modern world," but you may actually want to switch camps!
If you're already an Android user, it might be tempting to go out and pick up an iPhone, despite the fact that you may already have been enjoying many of the same features Apple is introducing with the next iteration of the iPhone. You may be asking yourself if you should jump ship from Android over to the "dark side," as your friends may call it, to the Apple side of things. Here are some points to consider if you're thinking about switching over.
Are you tired of unstable apps?For the most part, iOS is a lot more stable than Android. You don't have to worry about killing tasks, apps being force closed, or issues with the latest software upgrades causing an unstable atmosphere. iOS is quick, smooth, and free of the bells and whistles you have to worry about with an Android phone. And while many users will tell you that Android phones are smooth and without issue as well, for the most part as a user of both the iPhone and Android devices the iPhone has consistently come through where the Android phone has caused more issues.
Are you looking to simplify your smartphone usage?There's nothing simpler than an iPhone. Everything about the devices are meant to maximize usability and simplicity. There's one tactile button you need to worry with, simple drag-and-drop mechanics, and everything is straightforward. That's what the entire OS is built upon, and if you're tired of expansive options, customization, and want to go for a more streamlined approach to your communications device, an iPhone is the way to go.
Are you looking to keep up with current trends?Let's face it. Owning an Apple iPhone makes you part of the "in" crowd. Maybe you're tired of having to find a phone case that fits your hefty Android device. Everyone makes phone cases for iPhones, and the new models are no different. If you've already got the Macbook Pro, the iPod, or the iPod Touch, you might as well take the plunge. Plus, all of your devices will be able to interact with each other.
Are you looking for a better selection of apps?While the Google Play store is rife with plenty of games and utilities that the iPhone has, the truth is the App Store happens to get most of the updates and new components of said apps first. iPhone apps often receive more complete apps as well, and they tend to work better -- at least, for the most part.
