    IPhone devices feel more premium in your hand, ios is much smoother than Android, applications made for ios are better in terms of graphics, features, smoothness, etc.
    Operating system gets more frequent updates, ios has matured and adopted more functions like widgets, control center, etc. IMessage and facetime are powerful features once user gets used to. Finally the system security, Long lasting device lifetime....etc.
    Let me say that I have used all flagship devices made by Samsung and recently sold a S8 plus (too buggy compared to my 7plus) regardless of the ton load of features I gave up by abandoning the the android.

    Do you want to use an iPhone? If the answer is yes, then go and buy one. After that, take the time to learn it and hopefully, you’ll enjoy using it as much as we enjoy using ours.

    If you need somebody to convince you, I would say don't switch. Switch only if you know that you want or need to.

    I switched for one major reason, and a few minor reason. One of the minor reasons was that my whole family, extended family, and almost all of my friends, use iPhones, so iMessage is much easier for all of us. The other minor reasons are that I trust Apple's security design and appreciate the updates more than Android. The major reason is that no Android phone maker supports their phones as well as Apple does. I live close to an Apple Store, and there are plenty nearby. There is no Google Store, Samsung Store, LG Store, Motorola Store, etc., anywhere near me. (Or anywhere, probably.) One of my Android phones was damaged and every replacement I received had some sort of problem, the last of which (the headphone jack didn't work) I finally decided to live with until it was time to upgrade.

    However, see my first sentence...

    1) More fluid UI. Less stutters/lag, on "weaker" processor and RAM. Leading to...
    2) Better battery life in a smaller device (iPhone 7 vs Moto X 2015...I know, 750p vs 2K resolution; 4.7" vs 5.2")
    3) OS updates come to ALL devices simultaneously, regardless of carrier.
    4) Great camera.
    5) iMessage and FaceTime to family (all but two members have iPhones)
    6) As said previously, SUPPORT.

    I think that Google with the Pixel phones are striving to become like Apple. They want to be in control of all aspects of the phone experience from hardware to software. If I was building a phone I would use the iPhone as the template and strive to match the iPhone experience. More than likely I'm switching from Android to iOS. Mainly for security and productivity. I have a Nexus 6 and it is so laggy and buggy and only two years old. The hardware works but, I believe that this is a software issue. An example would be the camera. Pretty good camera module that is mated to a sad excuse for camera software. The camera now is all but unusable. I will miss the big 5.98 screen but, I will not miss the pitiful user experience.

    I use a MacBook Pro and an iPad Mini which I've recently acquired. So I am somewhat familiar with the Apple ecosystem. I don't have to convince you. You need to convince yourself. Good luck in this endeavor...

    i would say that if you use many of the google products then maybe an android phone will be better.
    if u use more of the apple products then maybe it will be better to use an Iphone

    iOS is more secure and polished than android. The only downside is you can't customized it your way as you do on android.

    Apple hardware is known to long last if kept with good care,+ apple always stand behind their products when comes to customers satisfaction.

    Updates - Unlike Android, Apple updates usually reach your iPhone immediately as and when they come out.

    Security - Security of your Android smartphone can be breached far too easily in comparison to an iPhone.

    Simlicity - no doubt that Android gives us loads of customization options, but there's a saying too much of everything is not very healthy either.

    No bloatware - iPhones do come with their own share of bloatware, but the undisputed king of unnecessary bloatwares is Android. Most of pre-loaded apps on android don't even use it at all in our life time.

    Ads - There are lesser intrusive ads in apps on iOS as compared to those in Android platform.

    Safety - You may cry out of joy all you want over the freedom you get in Android, but that freedom comes at a price. Security of your Android smartphone can be breached far too easily in comparison to an iPhone

    Only you can make the decision. It's a personal preference. I moved from Android to Apple on a personal level in January. My company has us using the ipad and am used to it so it. I was having serious issues with my Samsung and just fed up. I had been thinking about it for quite awhile actually. I just didn't jump into it. I kept playing with the 7plus when I was in a Verizon store and when my back order fell thru and was told it wouldn't be filled due to production being canceled that was just the icing on the cake so to speak. DONE. Like a bad relationship, it was time to move on. Not looking back.

    Yeah, there are always advantages and disadvantages (especially if you are with Samsung bloatware). I did the jump some time ago and dont regret it.

    I switched because of the updates that even old iPhones continue to receive. On android your lucky to get one upgrade before it's obsolete. And every time an update comes it promises better battery life, and ALWAYS does the opposite

    thank all you guys for the great answers. i have talked with some other people using the iPhone and i think that my next acquisition will be an iPhone. it has get better support than android and that means that the phone will be useful for many years and not like the android after one year not getting any update and be forgotten at the deepest point of the sea.

    Not sure if this thread is still active but I'll contribute. I've had so many different flagship phones between Android and apple in the past few years. I've had the Pixel since December and I've been loving it, although I'm ready again to go back to apple. I love everything Google does, and the Pixel support is unreal. I use the daydream VR headset sometimes but it's more of a gimmick.
    Almost all of my friends and family use iPhones or some kind of Apple device so the ecosystem is much more inviting. iMessage is the best thing apple has ever done and it's the reason I go back to apple everytime

    Welcome to iMore. You want someone to convince you to switch?...Switch because I said so (LOL), just kidding. If you want a device that just works the way it should day in and day out without all the "constant tweaking" then the iPhone is for you. Thanks for joing iMore. We hope to see you around the forums with your new iPhone ...ENJOY

    i've moved your thread to the general discussion area, anyway, no one can convince you to do anything, I have both, and I like both. After-all they are the platform that are going places, currently.

    Just saw this post. I jumped over in January and I am extremely pleased. I have no glitches when I get updates. Battery life is outstanding on my 7+. My only complaint is I wish ringtones were easier to download. Other than that it's all good
