    If you could install Android on your iP6 and have all the functionality of the Apple Hardware would you give it a try? Wouldn’t that be like having the best of both worlds. I know it would never happen, but just a thought.

    Ok already I get it “like having the best of both worlds “ bad choice of words this was not meant to be about iOS vs. Android. It was meant to be about trying an alternate OS on my Apple hardware. I like to experiment with things, how stupid of me to use Android as the OS of choice.

    It would be interesting to try.. but I like iOS better than Android by much. Specially Jailbroken iOS.

    No. Freaking. Way.

    And I question your judgment when you proposed the premise "best of both worlds". I have an iPhone 6 Plus with iOS 8.1. I already have the best of all worlds.

    No way for me either. If I was looking for a phone running Android, I would perform the proper research and buy the one best suited to me. I've decided iOS best suits me, so there's no way I'd want my iPhone 6+ with Android.

    No. I've already experienced Android and still do. Android is better in your opinion but not for a lot of us. I'll keep Android on my aging nexus and periodically remind myself why I left it behind in the first place whenever I get that "grass is greener" feeling.

    No - why would I want to install a junk engine in my beautiful designed Ferrari with an awesome factory-installed engine?

    Not at all "grumpy". I just get really annoyed at threads like this. Why would I want to replace iOS on my Apple device with android anything? As I said, I question your judgment to even suggest that it would be a good thing.

    Oddly, if everyone said "wow, what a wonderful idea", you’d be happy with that outcome. But when I say "no freaking way", you label me as grumpy. Karen quoted my post and agreed with my take. You didn’t call her out. Sau124 said "why ... install a junk engine in my ... Ferrari" and you don’t call him out. Why are you focused on dogging me?

    Like I said, I HAVE the best of ALL worlds - an Apple device with an Apple OS that was designed to run on my Apple device.

    The only reason I never really give a real thought to buying any of the Android based devices is because I can't stand the OS. I can't consider it the best of both worlds when there's nothing appealing about the "other world" to me.

    This^. That OS is just terrible. Honestly, I enjoyed BBOS better than Android....and that's saying a lot.

    My intentions were not to annoy you or offend anyone else on this forum, as I said, I was simply curious to see what people thought. Being the tech junkie I am I like to mess around with things “ like the best of both worlds” maybe a bad choice of words again I apologize for that. I did not intend to call you out on anything, I respect your opinions and you post, and to the Ferrari comment if I could afford a Ferrari I could afford to open the bonnet and mess with that also, and that’s what I would most likely do it’s just the way I am.

    It’s not about iOS vs. Android it was just about tinkering with are device’s with that, Peace.

    Heck No!!! LOL. I used to have Android and only used it for a brief period and did not like the software. Though that was several years ago and the Android platform has surely evolved since then, I still love the seamless flow of the iOS and OSX ecosystem. This is just what works for me. Android may work fine and dandy for others, but not for me.

    I come from Android and still own an Android tablet but I'm not going to regret the day it needs to be upgraded (to an iPad).
    Although I missed some Android features when I just got my iPhone I noticed I preferred to use the much smaller phone over the tablet, only because the way IOS behaves. I think that says enough 😉

    I would have to say nope. As much as I luv the customization of Android, the Apple iOS beats it in every other way for the way I use my devices.

    The only reason I run an iPhone Is the iOS.... Yes the phone is nice too but if the android phones ran iOS I'd be more likely to try that

    No. I've had tons of Android phones and I haven't been happy with any of them in the long term. Not to mention, the iPhone 6's hardware wouldn't get too far running Android as it's a huge power and graphics hog and requires three times the RAM as iOS to run not quite as well, so it's just not efficient enough for me. I understand people who use both, but I've never really had the desire to use both simultaneously.
