    I have both and I will carry both, as I have two lines. I'm not overly impressed with Android offerings this side of the year. May be just before Christmas is the time to look.

    Samsung touts their fast wireless charging as something that they have but Apple doesn't and will beat Apple over the head with this fact. Whenever I see that commercial I laugh, I laugh because if you have that device... you're going to need that fast charging since Android devices are notorious for being battery power vampires.
    My genuine experience is that Apple devices have much worse battery life than Android devices, especially the 6/6S and 5/5S. I especially wonder if 6/6S users realise just how far behind similar Android devices their phones are in this respect. It's rather sad as it puts me off buying a Apple phone.

    Not just my experience, BTW: https://www.theguardian.com/technolo...h-battery-life

    I hear better reports of the 5SE - hopefully Apple will finally take battery life seriously.

    Apple kinda did make the 6S battery smaller than the previous generation 6 models.

    I've owned every model iPhone made, every Galaxy and every Note,,, I do love the toys !!!!!
    I just got rid of my S7 and S7 Edge,,, great phones and killer cameras, I'm currently using a 6s as my daily driver.

    just wait it out in 2 more months the new note will be out the new (but kind of the same) iPhone 7 will be out heck even the new nexus will be out, With so many new phones coming out in the fall i think it will be foolish to upgrade now especially if nothing is wrong with your current phone

    If your just trying something different then there's no need to wait for the 7Plus. Get the Nexus 6p for cheap and keep your upgrade incase you want to move back. Everyone think trying Android means a Samsung device but the Nexus 6p is the best way to try Android.
    This would be my recommendation as well.

    Op I'd wait to see the iPhone 7 and note 7 as others have said.

    I saw one post here that really hit it on the head: choose the os first. Decide what you like about each OS and pick the one that suits you best. I like to fiddle around with android but after two or three days I switch back to my iPhone. It's just better for me.

    It has ram management issues I've heard. Plus, iPhones lag also.

    It's hard when you like many things about both OSes. I think I have to accept that I'm just a switcher. I love how iOS manages battery but I love how Android phones can be so varied in design. Hard out here.

    Edit: I'm fickle, going to keep an Android (toss up between 5x and Robin) and just change between them when I feel like it. I like both, so the only solution is to have both (and my Windows Phone too)! LOL.

    I have no issues with my 6s plus I was just thinking of trying something different. iOS is very nice imo.
    I did the same thing back in April. After 10-ish years using Android, I decided to give iPhone a try. There are things I like and dislike about iPhone, and the same is true about Android. It really wan't much of a learning curve and after I for the Watch Sport it made the experience a lot better. Will I stay with iPhone? I have no idea. I just decided to give it a try.

    But, like everyone else has said, I'd at least wait for the iPhone 7 announcement, see how much prices drop on other iPhone's, then decide.

    Disagree. The best way to experience android is not buying a Samsung or nexus but one of those cyanogen phones that take out the google bs while making the overall os suck less.
    My best Android experience, so far, was with the OnePlus. Because of said Cyanogen.

    I'm not considering getting one, and couldn't if I wanted since I'm a VZW guy, but the OnePlus 3 looks absolutely sick.

    If it supported either Sprint or Verizon I would definitely give it a whirl. That's the only Android phone out right now that has sparked by interest. I do like the HTC devices as well though.

    S7 edge. Great device not cheaper then iPhone. I really can't say anything bad. Yet I missed the fluidity of the iPhone better updates. Not fond of the carrier updates.

    As of two days ago I picked up a 6plus and happy.

    Most of all for me I became tired of giving my $ to a company with little to no morals.

    Thrilled that Apple makes a stand and let's you know.

    My genuine experience is that Apple devices have much worse battery life than Android devices.
    It's funny, I have great battery life on my iPhone 6 Plus and so does my brother who has an iPhone 6s. Both of us can practically go two days on a single charge whereas when I had an Android phone I had to have a spare battery on me at all times since I would be replacing the battery with even light usage after four hours.

    Good God, my Android devices were absolutely horrible when it came to battery life! Absolutely abysmal battery life. I had four Android devices and all of them suffered from terrible battery life that no matter what I did, no matter what so-called "battery miracle app" I loaded, I could barely go six hours before looking for a wall outlet or swapping the battery.

    My Android battery experience was the exact opposite of what you describe.

    Oh, and how's the software updates? Oh yeah... I forgot, you don't get any because your Android OEM is too worried about coming out with the "Next Big Thing" to make people buy than to put the time and effort into developing software updates.

    Yeah, I'll take my iPhone over any Android any day of the week!

    I guess I'm one of those rare aliens who have tons of unicorn blood that i bathe in. If i get more than 5 hrs on my iPhone I'm impressed. If i get more than 2 days of standby I'm like oh sheet!! My note 5 pushes 6 days of standby (usually 5d 10when ) and i can get 13-18 hrs of heavy use a day. I played adventure capitalist and my battery was almost gone in 2 hours even with low power mode on.  says my battery is fine.

    The funny thing about the update issue is that yeah android barely gets updates but 85% of iOS updates are buggy /glitchy/have multiple major issues and have tons of exploits that can make the device less safe.  then releases another update to fix that issue/bug/w/e and opens more issues. Even if you and people here on imore don't have issues doesn't mean everyone has a device that works perfectly.

    Moral is buy what you want, do some research... DON'T go to a strictly android or iOS forum asking about competitor devices. Of course they're going to tell you their treasured os is better yada yada, go look at neutral unbiased forums for your type of question.

    IOS and android are pretty much the same, you can't go wrong with either.

    And the Android OEMs are any better when it comes to software updates? Don't make me laugh.

    Shamesung for instance, couldn't wrote good code to save their lives. TouchWiz is a bloated piece of crap, it's a RAM pig and people know it. Oh, and those colors. Oh yuck.

    Sure, Android may be good if you happen to have a Nexus device but once the Android OEMs have gotten their hands on it and put it through the meat grinder, what comes out the other end is more often than not a bug-filled lag-fest.

    I have to disagree with this. My last 2 Android phones were Nexus devices (Nexus 6 and 6P) both running custom roms. If I made it to 5pm and had any battery left, it was a good day. As a network admin I'm on my phone almost constantly; phone calls, text messages, emails, and several admin/remote apps. And all of this while on wifi.

    I have several coworkers with iPhone 6 and I personally think those devices' batteries were horrible from the start. My wife and son and the 6 and the battery was horrible. The few folks I know with 6S seem to be getting a little better battery.

    I switched to the 6S plus on April 2nd of this year and even with 470mah less battery than the Nexus 6 and 700mah less battery than the Nexus 6P, I'm still around 50% battery at the end of the day. On the Nexus phones I was having to charge on the way home just to make it until bedtime. I know everyone has different experiences with mobile devices. Maybe I got a great iPhone and bad Nexus devices? Who knows. I can only report my personal use.
