Have you switched from Android to an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus?



Apple sold as much smartphones as Samsung this past quarter for the first time in the history of the iOS-Android rivalry. While the vast majority of those who snatched an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus are likely upgrading from an older iPhone model, some of them are undoubtedly newcomers that have been waiting on the sidelines for Apple to finally introduce a handset with a larger display.

Maybe, just maybe, some within that waiting list are actually switching from Android, enticed by the larger screen, but also by the resale value that an iPhone holds, the new Apple Pay ecosystem, the camera quality, or are just curious to try out what the fuss is all about. This is why we wanted to ask you whether you are one of those users who used to carry an Android phone before, and are now into the iOS camp. Do some honest answering in the poll below, and sound off in the comments.

Explain how because from what I see you're a blind fanboy that hops on bandwagons.

I'm a sheep when I still have a Note 4 ready to be used whenever I want. :(

I do. That's why I'm still jailbroken and happy. Though my battery lately has been draining QUICK. Calling Apple or AT&T today to see if I can get a replacement.

But jailbreaking voids your warranty.

Reverting back to stock iOS doesn't. ;)

Don't bother calling AT&T. Only Apple warranties their phones, AT&T does not. Another reason to not go with Apple. PITA

A sheep with a history of 9+ Android devices. Makes sense.

Well based on the posts I have read, you straddle the fence which is fine. You don't have to choose a side when you can just enjoy both. But there are times when you do sound more like an Apple fan vs being non-biased to a platform. Based on your comment above I would have assumed you were a sheep, if I didn't see 10's of your other posts. Remember, its not what you say, but how you say it.

Hi Smurf, i think you are wasting your time arguing with some "diehard fan". I love what is works for me, i love android smartphone for daily driver and still think Apple tablet is the best tablet till this day. Okay iPad is quite expensive but you don't have to own the latest Apple iPad which for me it's basicly the same except you are hardcore mobile gamer and you need faster device my old iPad 4 is working fine with great battery life (think to get iPad air cuz it's waaaay lighter), i don't mind to switch to any device. You are no sheep, but haters gonna hate...

That was a dumb fanboy ass post. His choice phones is simply that...a choice of phone. Sitting on PA sweating him about it, is someone of low expectations/lowlife.

I wonder what goes in in 98% of these users minds because their #1 goal is to bash anyone to praises Apple or uses an Apple device.

Senseless ignorance

I just can't believe how people are appalled at SOMEONE ELSE'S phone choice. People should be allowed to give their opinion about the phone they're using, and unless you've used the phone you're bashing, your opinions should be kept to yourself. This site is just full of narrow-minded fanboys spreading cancer in the comments.

No that isn't the problem. The problem is typically Apple users will bash something on Android and then when an Apple device gets it, they praise it. Example...Size. Samsung has been making large phones since the S3. iPhone fans based the size saying it was to big and how we don't need 720p. Then when the Note came out, they all blasted it saying its to big. Then 1080p came/Blu-Ray and they all bashed that too. They also bashed QHD saying we don't need. Does everything have to be about need? Now that the iPhone finally reach these, all of a sudden Apple is to be praised and love. Mostly because the fans have to much pride and love for Apple to ever say anything bad, even when their phones or tablets don't work properly. That is why they get bashed. They also get bashed because most iFans are bigits, hypocrites, jerks and more. I could care less what phone you like, its your money you're suppose to buy what you like. But if I see you post hate on one sight when Samsung does something and then you post love when Apple does it, then you deserved to get bashed. I don't mean you personally, that's a general you. If you seem to love Apple, than you get put into a bunch or grouped with the bad Apple users. It is sad to be stereotyped, but they do it to Android users too. I use Android because I have too. I use Windows because I have too. I don't have to like them, and it doesn't automatically make me a fan because I defend my usage of them. But that is how iFans treat people. You have to take just like you give.

I've only had Androids.....they are what I know. Same with PC's......always had a Windows OS. Apple has made some cool products that have started certain trends or fads in technology...... I just don't use their products because they aren't familiar to me and because they are so "trendy" and over-priced. Basically, I just can't bring myself to becoming an I-Tard

But not everyone can. Obviously you didn't need or took advantage of the capabilities Android offers. Like Windows, they both work with all the existing capabilities your device has to offer, which is how it should be. Locking down capabilities for no reason is stupid. That is the main thing I hate about the iPhone and why I would never go back. I need mass storage. There is no reason why Apple can't separate the system from the user available storage. Open file system and transferring files over BT an attaching any file type to an email. Using these functions on a PC and having them on the phone too is a huge deal for me. Apple locking this down for no valid reason at their pricing is crazy. I didn't go Android because I wanted too. I was happy trying different phones. I started with Windows Mobile, I tried Palm OS, I tried Blackberry and Windows Phone as well. Apple basically forced me to use Android permanently because it was the only device that fit my needs. If the iPhone did everything Android phones did, I would have never switched from an iPhone. At the same time though, I have no regrets. The only way I would ever buy an iPhone, Apple would need to have the main 3 features I must have.

I had the iphone4 when it first came out, after i got it i tried to put my favorite songs in... I tried drag files in.... It won't go in... I thought something wrong with cable or not having the necessity drivers for it.... Later i found out thats the way ios works so i took it back after a week of owning it... Switched to android ever since. And its awesome... Never go back to ios. By the way, ur 2nd paragraph is exactly what i don't like about ios.
