Poll results: iPhone users, if you were to use an Android phone as a daily driver, which would you go for?

Poll results: iPhone users, if you were to use an Android phone as a daily driver, which would you go for?
So, now that both Android and iOS have matured quite a bit through the years, and many users have had a chance to own or at least try a phone of both flavors, we imagine quite a bit of our readers have a clear-cut reason for liking their specific phone of choice, no matter what system it is on. Or, some may even own two phones or a mix between an Android phone and iPad — it's OK, we're all geeks here.

So, we wondered, for those of you that usually rock an iPhone, what would your go-to Android phone be? If, hypothetically, you absolutely can't use an iOS handset anymore, which of the many Android ones would you instantly decide to pick up?

Admittedly, the choice to pick a Nexus was not present in this poll, which we will take responsibility for and promise to rectify in some future poll. But, for the time being, it seems the Note 7 has really made a strong impression in users, many vowing to switch from iPhone to Samsung's phablet. Well, that's interesting.

If you had to switch from iPhone to Android, which one would you go for?

Samsung Galaxy S7 / Note 7
HTC 10
LG G5 / V20
Moto Z / Force
Sony Xperia X Performance
Huawei P9
OnePlus 3
I'd go for an exotic Chinese brand or a lower-range, cheaper phone

Nearly all the votes went to the S7. Yet they all ridicule the S7 everyday.

The worst issue is that he doesn't paragraph them properly. It gets really painful to read.

They just need to work on better battery life. Again. I'd trade curved glass for a battery that lasts more than 8 hours.

So when does the battery on a Galaxy not last 8 hours. If you phone doesn't last you all day, that means you use it to much. It means you need to physically interact with something other than your gadget. I watch people at a dinner table, eating together; and they will rather text each other vs just opening their mouths and talking. My Note 5 lasts me from 8AM on day one until 7PM day 2. It is very rare I need to put It on the charger back to back days.

Signal Strength plays a lot in battery life in my experiences... I lived in texas until about a month ago and would use 20% of battery for the whole day. Nothing changed except now i live in IL and battery is down to 80% left by lunch using it the same amount (if not less)

Changing carrier can easily fix that, or getting a repeater for home.

You are right, when I'm at work my battery drains fairly quick, the signal is very low. When I'm at home the battery easily lasts me more than a full day.

I'm not talking about a Note 5, which I also owned. Note 5 lasted me half a day longer than my S7 Edge. S7 Edge had a larger battery and yet gets far worse usage time. No difference in my usage, just an inefficient device. Don't compare the 2. Doesn't compute.

You have the exynos or the SD?

That was expected. Snapdragon based Samsung phones run terribly.

I don't see much ridicule for the S7, some questions and queries about some of the functions (as with any phone) and lots of butthurt about those queries from Samsung fans but I don't see any hate towards it, unlike the kind that comes from its users towards other brands...

If I didn't love my 6SP I'd definitely would have the Note 7 os S7E.

Pretty sure Unordinary is Sauce if I'm not mistaken but whatever helps you get through your day.
