    Welcome to iMore and congrats on your new iPhone!!

    The first thing you might want to do is prep your Android for data transfer.
    Check out the Google Play store for the Move to IOS app and install it. Certain data like Contacts and Media can easily be transferred to your new iPhone during the setup process and even app recommendations.
    Step by step instructions can be found in this article: http://m.imore.com/how-move-your-pho...android-iphone

    Good luck and have fun!!!
    Thanks. I got it downloaded and ready to go.

    Quick question about this. Can't I just use my contacts save within Gmail?

    Fantastic. I don't keep pics on my phone. I almost immediately send pics I want to keep to Google Photos. I have a trimmed down iTunes list for when I fly and don't have service. Otherwise,I will stream my Google Play Music to my phone and listen via BT in my car. That's why I only got the 32GB.

    You can also check out one of the many "show us your homescreen" threads on here for app ideas. Every so often I see an app someone has that looks interesting so I look for it in the App Store. There isn't one for the 7 Plus yet but I'm sure there'll be one soon.

    I want SIRI to sound like George Carlin. Now that would be a good way to get some laughs while stuck in traffic.

    Welcome to iMore and iPhone, lol, and needless to say, We would also like a comparison of both OS coming from your POV, considering you been with Android so long and coming to iOS, that'd be great.

    No, your information should not be lost, in case you still plan on continuing to use your android. I would suggest though checking the app details on Google Play for clarification. I would also suggest backing up your Android prior to data transfer just in case.

    I've been flipping back and forth between Android and iPhone. Have a Note 5 but ordered black 128gb Plus today. The battery life on my Note was becoming horrible, the Plus's is amazing.You'll be pleased to find many Google apps work well. You can even use Google Music if you subscribe. Maps, Drive both work. Voice recognition on Siri subpar compared to Android. Love the iOS notification panel like depicted above. All your Android type widgets there. iOS is slick and efficient. Really don't need tips. This thing drives itself.

    Also, not sure what keyboard you used on Android (I use Swiftkey on Android devices) but I've found the GBoard app that google released exclusively to iPhone for now is a great swiping keyboard choice. The text prediction is not quite as good as Swiftkey....on an Android phone......but the swiping feel etc. is much better than Swiftkey on iOS. Good luck with getting everything set up. I just made the switch myself last year, started out on Android with the OG Droid. I'm guessing you already figured it out a few posts back but yeah you can definitely set it to use your Google contacts and calendar and it works really well I think. Of course Google photos definitely works as well which is a big plus for me. I have 15GB+ of storage space with Google (free) vs. the 5GB Apple gives "out of the box".

    How do you clear app cache on this thing? I have followed some directions, but they don't work. Only deleting and reinstalling works for me.

    Unfortunately there is no way to clear the cache in a particular app. Battery Doctor app used to do that but I don't believe it's available anymore. The only thing to do is exactly what you're doing, uninstalled and reinstall.
