    I have the iphone 5s. and I am really considering dropping iphone and going for an android. I'm just so unhappy with my iphone. Not sure if I should upgrade to a newer iphone or go for an android.
    I suggest visiting a store that has working models of iPhones and Android phoneslike a Best Buy or a carrier storeto help you with your decision. Put some thought into it. What do you not like about your current iPhone? Is it a non-issue in the newer iPhones or Android devices? What are the trade offs for switching? People often find that the grass isn't any greener on the other side. Then again, sometimes they're glad they made the switch.

    I thought the opposite was true especially because of the Samsung Note 7 problem. Android phones are a bit easier to use and more popular. But Iphones have better touch tactile funcionality , quicker and stronger wifi signal I have found.

    And you have some people here who use both and all lol! You can't pay me to give up my iPhone SE or my Honor 8. I said up thread that I might switch but I honestly switch between the two as I want and I really like it.

    At this time, there's no equal to the iPhone SE package on Windows Phone or Android, so for the first time in months, I'm trying to see if I can get through a month only using it.

    That's quite a list and it actually had me thinking about how many I had on your list of smartphones. I actually had eight of them only two was missing (Samsung SG3 & Note3).

    It was a toss up between S7 Active and Pixel and I went Pixel. Something tells me if I went to Android first I'd be all Android, but went to iOS instead and now can't get use to Android. I'm cautiously optimistic about the BlackBerry Mercury. Will have to see.

    I'm excited to see the Blackberry Mercury and may buy it if it arrives on Verizon. I had the Priv for quite a while and really enjoyed it. Rocking the iPhone 7 matte black at the moment.

    I'm really thinking about switching. iPhones in the last 5 years have almost always had a hardware issue.

    Man my list is about this long as well, I would have to add a couple of devices like the sidekicks, iphone 2g, 3g,3gs,4 and 4s. its some android phones I had also but just like you said android just over complicates things.

    I hear ya. The switch isn't an easy one. But good luck if you decide.

    I feel the switch from BlackBerry or Android to iPhone is easiest cause it works "out of the box", but if you use stock Android it's very similar except the reliance on Google apps. If you're using an iPhone but have your contacts, photos, and calendar sync'd to a Gmail account the transition is seamless.

    Must be nice to have two quality devices at one time. I remember when I had three (iPhone 5s, Blackberry Z10 and Samsung Note3) devices and at that time all were premium devices and I enjoyed all three, but when I left the house my iPhone always seem to be the one with me. That's when I made the decision to just have one device....needless to say, but I choose the iPhone and haven't looked back.

    I'm starting to get this concept. It's nice that the iPhone generally works well even though it has hiccups too, here and there. Even though I still like my Honor 8 and Lumia 650 quite a bit, my iPhone offers the least amount of compromises.

    It's been refreshing to just use and not think about it.

    It's kind of funny. The more the iPhone and other devices advance the less I seem to want out of a phone. Apparently the average person glances at their phone or checks their phone 150 times per day for about a minute. That's 2.5 hours. That's a lot of time especially when it doesn't consider more than a 1 minute glance check in.

    So my iPhone 7 128GB is ready to be sold. I have officially removed Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter from my life. I'm am a heavy LinkedIn user and like the forums. Not a huge camera and picture guy.

    I can get about $600 cash for my iPhone 7 and buy an SE for $449 and have $150 left over. It makes sense. I don't need the screen real estate. I just need phone, email, text and a few apps.

    Yea, so I'm thinking the SE is a good fit to change things up. Only issue is a work issued 6s. Having 2 different size phones and keyboards can be annoying.

    Honestly i have started liking the Iphone with time now. You had definitely some premium devices to use all along.
