    Default Are you really content with the iPhone?

    There was a time when I would pay close attention to every new smartphone or other mobile device that was introduced. I was one of those people who had to have the latest and greatest, and I shutter to imagine the amount of money I spent doing that crap...lol...All of that changed when I purchased the iPhone 4S in October 2011. Since then, I have not even entertained the thought of buying anything other than an iPhone. I'm serious. In no way am I saying that the iPhone is THE best smartphone on the planet, however, I am saying that the iPhone is the absolute BEST smartphone for Just Me, D......Do any of you feel the same?

    D, I couldn't agree more with this post. Same scenario for me as well. I can add that while using blackberries for the 4+ years prior to switching to an iPhone I was content as well, but I was always one of the people that wanted an iPhone - Verizon just didn't offer it otherwise I'm sure I would've had one sooner than I did in 2011 when I purchased my 4S, and then in 2013 I moved onto my 5C. I had brief "want" to try android so I did watch the Samsung S4 for a short time, but when it really came down to actually making the move I just couldn't. I really am truly happy with the way the iPhone works for ME, and as of now going forward, in the future I plan on staying with the iPhone unless something else was to become available and do better (function wise for ME).....which as of now I have a hard time believing that

    Same here D I use to window shop the sprint store every month when I stopped in to pay my bill and check the cellphone database every morning to see what's new. The iPhone was on the bottom of my list till I got my i5 that's when I realized it's what I was looking for the whole time

    See, what helped me realizing of being content with the iPhone was actually experimenting with Android.

    I've been with the iPhone since it's introduction, then I was curious about Android. I played with it many times, but it's never was my primary device.

    Took a tour with the Note 3 for about a month, take note (no pun attended)... The Note 3 is a beast of a phone. But at the end of the day... I prefer the iPhone & everything that Apple provides with it.

    I can honestly say I'm glad there is competition because it only helps Apple to build a better iPhone.

    I'm the same way. I had BlackBerrys for 4 or 5 years and was happy with them, but I always wanted to try the iPhone. Once I did in 2012 I was hooked. It meets or exceeds all of my needs. I haven't thought of switching to anything else in 2 years and I don't expect that to happen.

    Yes 100% without a doubt when it comes to tech toys or tech like the iPhone which this post is about I would never keep anything that I could not get to suit my needs and from my first iPhone until my 5S I am very happy with it because and this has been said before but it truly suits my needs and something overlooked but my lifestyle. I mean that I don't need a mini TV on my belt in it's holster. I am very contented with it and how I use the apps and just the phone itself to make my everyday life much easier. I can't think of any other phone that I have been so happy with.

    Default Re: Are you really content with the iPhone?

    I think I'm content.

    I started with PPCs back in 2004.

    Windows Mobile was the greatest thing to me back then. Then I switched to a Treo, hated it. Went to a Audiovox 6600, today people know them as HTC. I've had every major Windows Mobile device.

    The iphone launched and it didn't interest me. I was so into custom roms on windows mobile.

    In 2009 I switched to android and loved it.


    Then windows mobile became windows phone. I switched to it and absolutely hate it. However windows phone still intrigues me, I have a Lumia with 8.1 on it, but I just can't see myself using it daily, maybe once every few months.

    Any-who I switched to a iPhone 4S in 2012, I now have a iphone 5 and plan on getting the 6. Apps are just better on iOS. Plus I love the design of the iPhone.

    I can finally say that I'm content with the iPhone. Left twice for android and just recently came back with the 5s. iOS is just better for me.

    I have always liked the iPhone since I had the 3G, and I grew up with pretty much that as my defining Smartphone experience. I know if that experience is in Apple's DNA, and these guys really do live and breathe iOS in Cupertino, I know I can always count on an iPhone as a daily driver.

    Default Re: Are you really content with the iPhone?

    I love smartphones, at least I used to. They now bore me somewhat. That said, I have been through many phones, but since the 3gs, I have settled down with the iPhone. I continue to window shop and play with other people devices, but I am not giving up my iPhone. I have an iPhone 5 and I dont feel the need to change it to a 5s, it simply works, and works well. I imagine I would be upgrading to the 6, but I am stuck on iOS. I would have a secondary device to satisfy that itch to play with the different, but my iPhone will be my main phone, unless something drastically changes.

    Not the best. It certainly lacks in multi-tasking. Just look at BB 10 and you will realize. Also, the gimmicky animation when the app is minimized needs to cut down. It slows the entire process. It needs to happen in a blink of an eye!

    That was me only with at&t (Really Kataran SPRINT? LOL), only I found iLove early with iPhone 3G. I have strayed a couple of times (Nexus4, Galaxy S4), but soon returned after the "Novelty" of Android wore off. Now my time with the iPhone 5 will be up in Sept., and I eagerly await the iPhone 6 ...

    I've strayed a few times since getting my first iPhone back with the 4. I always come back when I realize that the entire time I'm on an Android I'm trying to make it behave like an iPhone!

    I think that I have a better understanding of my true needs now verus in the past. While I was quick to try out the Galaxy S3 and the Note 2, I was able to pass on trying out the S4, Note 3, and now S5 (although I did spend some quality time with each of them in the store). However, as each iteration of android and its devices continues to improve on lag (or lack thereof), screen quality, camera quality, etc....it is getting more difficult for me to pass up. Right now, it is the imessage, group messaging capabilities, and app quality that are keeping me with the iphone. If the iphone 6, or whatever they decide to call it, does not offer a larger screen as a choice, it may be time to consider a longer text drive of android alternatives.

    Interesting question. I would have to say 'no' ... but ...

    I absolutely adore my iphone and the thought of being without it, like I am now due to breakage, is annoying.

    I will always use the device that best suits my needs, whether it be iOS, Android or Windows phone. Really, the only reason I am using an Android device and an iPhone is that I need a larger screen and currently the iPhone doesn't offer that. As we all know, this may change in the next iteration and if that is the case, I will have no qualms in getting rid of my Android devices and moving over to iPhone completely.

    Whilst I do use other devices, I would never do so to the exclusion of an iPhone and I will always have one in my stable of phones.

    iPhone works TOO well. We have my wife's niece and nephew this week. They're at the aquarium. We have a group message. She's sending EVERY friggin picture to the group for her sister/brother-in-law. I miss my Androids inability to consistently receive group messages! Lol
