Surprised Android Convert
As I'm sure you've all heard before from former Android users, I am now a pleasantly surprised happy owner of a iPhone 5s 64 gig in space gray.
I have owned an original iPod for quite a few year's and I love it, but swore I would never buy an iPhone. Family members that had them always had cracked screens, call reception was horrible and they couldn't customize their iPhones the way I could on my droids. I had been an Android user for the past 6 years and figured I would be for life.
Fast forward to now. I was looking to upgrade my phone and was looking at all the new phone's and the one thing I kept noticing was how big they were getting. Now I am a petite gal with small hands and for the first time I started thinking about the iPhone due to it's smaller size. I don't watch movie's or play games on my phone so I really don't need a huge screen. And the glitches and lags in the Android system was getting on my last nerve along with the never-ending bloatware that I didn't want or use but couldn't get rid of. So I narrowed it down to either a Samsung Galaxy S4 or iPhone 5s. So off to Best Buy I go to compare because they were the only place that had an iPhone 5s in stock in the 64g size. I have 25g on my iPod and wanted the extra space.
Now you would figure that Best Buy would have had a demo iPhone set up and someone knowledgeable to help explain the differences in the 2 systems and show me the ropes so to speak - I didn't think that was such a far fetched expectation. Instead, what I did get was a list of what I'm not going to be able to do with my iPhone that I can do with Android as far as customization of contacts, ringtones etc. I was pretty annoyed by this point, but knowing I had 2 weeks to play with it and could return it if I didn't like it, I took the leap and got the iPhone. I'm pretty good at figuring things out, so why not.
Well, I've had the iPhone for 5 days now, and I have to say that I don't think I'll ever go back to Android. I have my iPod collection on my iPhone now, I have it somewhat working in my car though there seems to be issues with Ford Sync, but it's a Ford issue - had Android issue's also after an update. There is a big learning curve, and I am still figuring out a lot of thing's, but it's going to take time. I have figured out that the girl at Best Buy was wrong with what she told me I couldn't do, and from browsing through this forum, I have found a lot of useful information also. All in all, I have to say I'm pretty impressed. It's a beautifully designed phone, perfect size, and so far I haven't had any issues other than me forgetting that I'm not using Android anymore. Kudos to Apple!!!!!!
