Be Together. Not the Same. Part 1

I have been a dedicated Android user since 2009. I have always enjoyed the capabilities it possessed such as the open environment. My Android screams hack me, manipulate me, do cool stuff with me' and I say yeah, Yeah, YEAH! I got into the hype at times and in others I had to stop and think wait, isn't that what they sold us last year but in a different she'll with new fancy hardware numbers? Sometimes I feel like I keep getting led on to promises that just don't happen and honestly I'm getting tired of it.

My friends I have a confession to make: I am considering buying an Apple phone to be my primary device. 

Let's talk about how I've come to this conclusion. 

My boyfriend made some very convincing statements about why I should leave Android and come to iOS. Some of the reasons he said why I should leave were that I'm always complaining about my phone and some of its technical glitches, the lack of actually receiving phone calls when someone calls my phone, battery life, etc. I have thought about these things but I have not recently considered leaving the OS because of it. In the end he said something I think we should all remind ourselves, "a phone should phone". When I think about all of the things my phone can do I always have to give exceptions because certain things don't work as well in certain situations. I really enjoy Android and the new discoveries and innovation especially from our app developers. Also this isn't the 1st phone I have had these problems on.

Since iOS 8 and the iPhone 6 I have been applauding Apple from a distance. I say they stole this and we stole that but in the end we all need something that works well for us. People surrounding me have become more and more important which requires me to be available to them when they need to get in contact with me. I will continue to review and compare iOS to Android but here are a few things I have applauded Apple for recently that has grown my interest in the iPhone:

Bigger screen
Ability to drop the screen down to be able to reach the top corners with one hand (blew my mind)
The ability to share with other apps (I Need to be able to share with Pocket like on Android)
Beautifully crafted iPhone 6
Battery life
Good performance (even though the specs are MUCH lower than Android so I guess their chipset is da bomb
The ability to now select more than one email at a time

I have not completely given up on Android but hopefully if I decide to make this departure it will be to leave Android as it is so that when I return it will have grown and matured.

Details developing ;)

Leave me any comments or feedback below.
