    Honestly, because the iPhone/Apple ..."IT JUST WORKS". Not taking anything away from Android, but the customization is the only thing I liked.
    For me the biggest problem with Android is battery life. Always had to get an extended battery. The Plus I never have to worry about. And it is nice that it's always on. I rebooted my Android daily just to reset the memory.

    My problem with Android hasn't necessarily been battery life, but that there are 8 billion phones and not a single one has everything you would want. And they all tend to have an issue or another. IPhones do tend to have less issues - plus with less options it is harder to constantly look for the next best thing.

    I have the Samsung Note 4 and like the ability to download from the internet, change keypads etc. But this phone has problems. My biggest problem is that it is slow. I got a signal booster rrom Verizon but it didn't help. Don't know if an iphone will solve my problem.
    An iPhone solves -almost- every problems =P

    OP- I can type up a 2500 word essay on why you should leave Samsung, but without knowing you, I can't tell you what to get. I can also do an essay on why I finally went with iPhone, but the short version is:

    1) 5S and earlier were too, narrow, therefore the keyboard, for lack of a better word, sucked.

    2) Podcast. I've been a podcast junkie since the first generation Nano was released. It's so much easier on an iPhone because I don't have to sync a device to a computer. iPad was okay for podcast in the car and at home, but not in the field.

    3) Device integration. Text messages also come to my iPad and Mac. 'nuff said.

    4) Security/Privacy/TOS. Tim reassures me that I am apple's customer, not product.

    I'll stop there. Now can we please get back to the lover's quarrel ???

    I would suggest changing carriers. The reason why I got the 6plus is because of its screen size, feature benefits and clear screen. It's a hot phone and I'm looking forwards to the refreshed 6s plus version.
    I'm very happy with the phone I have so why not try this baby?

    LOL Safari isn't slow... I do think the OP's problem has more to do with Carriers than the device itself but I never try to discourage anyone from getting an iPhone, lol.

    After years on Android and having my 6 plus for some months now and owning an iPad, iPad 2 and iPad Air that is my experience and my opinion. Given my ownership history, to suggest I'm discouraging purchasing Apple mobile doesn't make sense.

    Btw I think it has something to do with memory size (1 gb), memory management and OS issues having multiple pages open in tabs.

    The amount of ram doesn't matter and iOS definitely doesn't have memory management issues. It does more with 1 GB than Android devices do with 3GB+. At the end of the day fewer people have ram issues with iOS than they have with Android.

    Limits of 1GB vs. 2GB RAM in iOS Devices

    "iPad Air 1 and iPad mini 2 users have been feeling the pain from day one, with Safari tabs being unable to be kept in memory for any decent amount of time due to the miserable 1GB RAM and the 64-bit A7 (and similarly the A8) requiring ~30% more memory for apps. Good luck to users of the Zombie iPad and its close cousin, the iPad 2, with a pitiful GB of RAM. Just try loading heavy sites like The Verge and watch Safari reload tabs or even crash."

    Yup.....my experience as well. And if memory is not an issue, why is it likely the S versions of iphone will likely come with 2gb? Why did Apple increase the memory on the Air 2 from 1gb to 2 gb?

    I think RAM does matter in iOS, just not remotely as much as it does in Android. ...but that makes sense since you do have a bit more control in Android. You could have a launcher and widgets taking up a lot of RAM or just keep things simple. My 6+ does provides a much better experience with 1GB of RAM than I've seen Android phones with 1GB provide.

    This is my experience too. I get better general performance out of my 6+ than I did out of my S6 or Nexus 6 with 3gb of RAM.

    Of course it matters. Android devices keep apps and browser tabs running in the background for multitasking far more than the iPhone is capable of. This isn't even a new topic up for fresh debate, it's been common knowledge in the tech community for years.

    Besides iOS in dire need of a more updated ui besides Ives silly icon switch which was a half hearted effort, this is the only area Apple needs to keep up with Android. And better app interoperability. And Siri.
    That's the one thing I will disagree with. I don't think that Apple needs a UI refresh at all. I really like the design of it and how it functions. When I was on Android I noticed that I used widgets less and less as the years went by until I finally just had one widget with a single bottom row of icons and used the app drawer mostly to find what I needed.
