The flexibility and verbose nature of Android can allow me to be highly productive when I am away from work. Tell me, when was the last time you used your phone to remotely manage your domains over a VPN, all while on a phone conference with your counter-parts in your department? I dunno about you, but my Galaxy Note EASILY jandles these tasks...that is, multiple tasks. Don't presume to lecture me on "real life". In fact...our IT department dropped our iPhones in favor of Android devices because iPhones are toys. iPhones are incapable of handling enterprise level work.



    Let me direct you to a few links which totally shut this point down.

    How many of you folks are jailbroken? Based on the above links...once you jailbreak, you are just as "insecure" than Android devices. For those of you that say "well, I am smart enough not to download anything bad"...then Android users could say the same thing. In fact, I dare say that Android users are more educated than iOS users when it comes to cyber-safety and avoiding malware.

    First of all, I'd like to point out the 1st sentence in the 3rd article. Yes; the one saying that 98% of malware is focused on Android. I'd also like to say that an IT professional like your self will obviously realize that no firewall/antivirus/similar protection software is bulletproof. I never claimed that iOS was completely impenetrable. Those articles point out a few things, however. 1st, only jailbroken devices are affected. Less than 3% of iOS users jailbreak. Think about that for a sec. Less than 3 percent of the millions of iOS users around the world are susceptible. Every android device is. Also, if, as you apparently did not, you had read my whole post you would've noticed that I said that closed doors of Apple keep it secure. Someone who jailbreaks has to go through a sometimes complex, but certainly intentional procedure to jailbreak. Someone who jailbreaks knows what they're getting into. That isn't always the case with Android. You know that Samsung I mentioned in my last post? It shipped to me from the carrier rooted. That's right, prerooted. I thought it just be a fluke, but I looked it up and every one of those phones came prerooted. Not to mention that you can find viruses in the Play store. As a Play Store publisher I can attest to how simple it is to upload anything to their market.

    The fact that you claim that Android is more secure is simply laughable no matter how you look at it.

    Call me one of those Android users that switched to the iPhone 6.

    Mind you, this is the first iPhone I purchased from myself, but I've always jailbroken my friends' phone, and had a iPhone 4 myself, for work.

    I switched to Android (Samsung Note II / HTC One M7) because of the bigger screen, better sound (to this day, IOS devices are still horrible for audio, but equalizers and headphones can relieve that) and the customization features via ROMs, enhancements, etc. through rooting. Previous to that I was on a Symbian Nokia N9 and a Sony K750 so I've tried my share of them because I wanted to see what each was all about.

    The iPhone 6 is basically Android 2012, which is fine because I like Android 2012. Thus, no major issues jumping over, apart from having to use iTunes (PITA!!!). But I'll stick with it since I've become more of a casual than power user now.

    One argument that IOS devices as a whole have going for them is more of an optimized OS / hardware combination. This is true on iPhones, iPods and iPads. The versatility of Android, while good that it gives options, cripples devices that don't have the same optimization (thus experimenting with ROMs). I don't have the time, interest or motivation to tinker anymore and everyone releases ROMs that don't really make practical sense. The other thing I like is the organization of the eco-system that is the app store. Google Play has a bunch of apps that don't work with all phones (once again, versatility) thus more time and headache to find the best app for the job.

    I know I'll switch to something else in a couple years, but I'm happy with my purchase. In the end, I'll go with what I feel most comfortable with, regardless of the label.

    I wish more people were like this. Some of you *cough*nakedcrook*cough* may not realize that I'm not a fanboy. I just like Apple more and think the Apple hate is such trash that I can't stand it. I'm glad you chose what you like best instead of what you felt hooked or pushed into.

    i myself left the apple camp on my uphone 5 and have a new htc one m8 , which is wat nicer than the uphones , its not hust the screen size apple need to grab android users its a really new ios , not just a system with a few android rips , every uphone looks the same , os on a 2 year old 5 looks the same as both 6,s , with android you get to feel you have a new phone , where as an iphone feels like an update , if ios really changes alot i might come back but it will be not just a few tweaks bit a new fresh looking os , till then iam as many 1000,s will do stay with android and sadly not apple


    Lol the changes were obviously significant enough even if they weren't for you. Don't come back we don't need you over here. C:

    User friendly??? Faster hardware. Technically the hardware can be faster, but android sucks. It will all suck until android l is released. Because they copied apples system of running software as if the whole premise for the os wasn't enough.

    I guess put it in a case or just don't sit on it. You have to expect something to happen. Use a good case, you'll be fine.
