    My personal observation is that more effort "seemed" to be put into iOS apps than in their Android counter parts. I don't have any proof to back that up, however.

    A couple of good things about Android are texting to a preselected group without having to choose each person individually, and second is the way that Android will reformat the text to fit the screen when I pinch-to-zoom. I cannot figure out why IOS doe not have these two features.

    This seems to be the case. I think it has a lot to do with it being harder to write apps for Android because of all the different versions of Android devices are on, different hardware, different screens res, etc. Fragmentation amongst others problems are the reason I left Android.

    That could very well be the reason, my friend. Excellent reply. Take care and have a great day...

    I actually traded my iPhone 4s for a galaxy nexus. And yes you can say it, I was nuts. Worst trade ever. I'm usually pretty good and don't regret trades. I wanted the Vanilla Android experience. OMG I should have listened to the 1000s of ppl saying the Nexus battery was horrible. Other than that I liked the Nexus. I eventually bought a Razr Maxx and luckily sold my Nexus. Now I'm sitting with a Razr Maxx that was the bomb.com the first few months but has since slowed down, gotten super choppy when switching apps and just opening the phone dialer takes over 4 secs. I'm now on the hunt for a iPhone 4s. Lesson learned.

    I just switched from a Galaxy Nexus to iPhone 4s. I couldn't take the lag, choppiness, battery, camera, build quality and longer on my Android (I have had a lot of Android devices). IMO Apple just builds better quality products in regard to software and hardware.

    I know exactly what you mean. Don't get my wrong I love Android and it's open source. I'm actually away on a work trip and I already have someone lined up to trade my RAZR MAXX for their iPhone 4s on Friday when I return. Man I hope they don't back out on me!

    The Razr Maxx isn't a bad phone, IMO iOS just performs better, is quicker, has better quality apps, better camera, etc. My Girl has the original Razr and it stutters a bit, amongst other things.

    Sounds to me like you need to reset the phone. I have a Maxx with none of those problems. It is fast!

    I have been using my 4S for almost a year and it still is a great phone and I never have any problems with it like I had with my Android phone. Although I am still on 5.1.1 I like the consistant updates for IOS and that I can upgrade them as soon as they become available if I want to. With Android it was always a long time waiting to upgrade to a newer version. I agree too that it seems like the apps are just a little better on IOS.

    I'm not sure how Apple does it, but they simply make brilliant devices. And, to top it off developers go out of their way to make decent and good working apps for the iOS platform, too...

    So, no matter what other device I carry around from time to time, I always seem to come back to iOS at some stage. Now, be aware that there are applications and settings that I'd like changed on iOS, but that rings that same on all three platforms (iOS, Android and BlackBerry OS')...

    Well stated.

    I have not run into a full app that does not get the task done. Stock OS app or 3rd party they are solid.

    I will also agree that things can be better, always room for improvement....


    Once any company makes a perfect OS or perfect device, it is that they will stop make phones and stop developement and close it's doors, as there will be nothing else to achieve. We will never be there in any platform.

    It's been tremendous. I'm actually sitting down now about to reactivate the 5 I think. It's so weird that the Galaxy is great but there's something about iOS that keeps pulling me back in. Lol

    Im routinely getting 8.5-9 hours on 50% of my battery.

    I'm not sure. I think I needed to just get it out of my system. Couldn't activate though as when I put in my old SIM number it didn't work and Verizon customer service closes at 11.
