Bye-Bye Android

I’ve been an Android use for nearly three years. While at first blush I enjoyed the flexibility, the customizability, of the platform the bloom is definitely off the rose. I had an HTC Evo 4G LTE, and while nice it had touchscreen issues. My next phone was a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, with a beast of a battery. Thing is, under KitKat, I constantly had it charging. Not to mention that either installing, or uninstalling, apps would make its vaunted quad cores freeze. Then there were the random reboots, the overheating, etc. Beyond that Google implemented restrictions in how the system could write to the SD card. Having just got the latest OS, Lollipop, installed, I’m still seeing random app crashes. And the phone just feels slower than it should.

I’ve switched back to IOS, on an iPhone 6 Plus, and it feels like coming home. It’s beautiful to look at, and hold.

And it just works–without getting in my way.

So, yes, I’m happy, but YMMV. This is my blog, and I can say what I want. iOS haters can get off my lawn.

Peace out.
