I've gone back and forth with iOS and android. Love. It's platforms but it drives me crazy how long it takes android to send updates which is why I always come back to iOS. Had the galaxy s7 edge, great device but it was already 3 months behind with security patches. Is this a big deal for everyone else too?

Yea I always have gone between the 2 and the more I use android the more I realize how far behind it is and how slow and unstable it is. Android security patches are slow if they even ever come out. One thing I HATE about android is that the phone is fine for 3 months or so after you get it and then it slows down. A reset temporarily fixes it but a month later it's slow again. After about 9 months the battery starts to do funny things. I'll be glad to get rid of this note 5 and back to iOS. I had the 4 4s 5 6plus and 6s plus.

I just purchased a 64GB iPhone SE for my wife yesterday and I've played around with it for a good bit (last time I used an iPhone was a 4S back in 2012). One striking thing I noticed immediately was how great the standby battery life is compared to Android phones. Even my Nexus 5X with 7.0 Nougat and the improved Doze cant match the iPhone's standby. My GS7E fares even worse.
With that said, however, the SE's battery drains at about the same rate when the screen is on & the phone is being actively used.
iOS has gotten much better since I've last used it but it's still too restrictive for my tastes and not as efficient in multitasking.
She uses the iPhone when she goes out and uses her Note 4 when at home.
