Ashleigh Allsopp, To be honest, if I wanted to move away from iOS I'd probably look at Windows before Android. It is at least different as opposed to a blatant ripoff. That said my next phone will continue to be an iPhone.
Ashleigh Allsopp, No. For a number of reasons. I struggle to find accessories like blood pressure monitors available for Android. There are thousands of other accessories for iOS. I tried Android but hated it, because I couldn't use it. Got frustrated with Android within minutes, despite being a copy of iOS, probably got to used to iOS. Hate the tiles on Windows Phones. But I do like the new Blackberry OS, in fact if I did have to buy another phone, I would love the new HTC with the Blackberry OS. But then again, problems like apps, games, music, accessories etc, makes me go back to Apple. I believe Android users really only use it for making phone calls and texts, as their internet use is small, very small considering it's meant to have a bigger market share. Hardly using smartphones for what they where designed to do, apart from making calls and texts.
my partner has had two Android phones in the last few years ( one that she was offered very cheaply and the other was a gift from a family member ) and she hated them for all sorts of reasons. She ended up buying a £15 very basic Nokia 100, which only does texting and calls.
Needless to say, she's very keen that I should get a new iPhone because she can then have my old iPhone. There's no way that I could imagine switching to Android. IOS integrates very well with my Macs.
Android phones only integrate with Google and I've had massive problems with a Google account being shut down for 'security' reasons, but Google do not answer any of my e-mails about it and the account can no longer be accessed. If the information associated with that account had been important, I would have been totally screwed.
my partner's company has issued senior staff with Android smartphones as replacements for their Blackberry phones. They have proved to be very unpopular and they don't seem to be anywhere near as reliable or durable as iPhones or Blackerries.
My partner now uses her old iPhone as her main phone, but needs the Android as well so that she can access the corporate mail service while away from the office.
