    I switched from an iPhone 4s to an HTC One M8 a while back. And while I *love* Android, I just don't like that phone. And from reading all the reports of the next Nexus devices from Google (the only acceptable Android device for me from here on out) I've decided it's just not acceptable. The cameras are okay at best on Nexus devices and fingerprint sensor on the back? Um...no. not feeling it. So today, placed my order through T-mobile for a silver 64GB 6s Plus. Gentleman at the store said I should be getting it on launch day but we'll see if that actually holds. In all, there's a few things I'm going to miss from Android but it'll be nice to hit the 90% mark on the things that I do want.

    Here's to hoping the 6s Plus gets it right!

    I'm right there with ya. Been on Android primarily for a few years. Spent an awful lot of time hunting down the "perfect" phone. Which doesn't exist, especially on Android. I just got tired of all the lackluster offerings from Android that I knew once I saw the 6s Plus I had to get back to Apple. They may not have the most "innovative" OS, but everything in Android seems like it was half baked and never worked as it should.

    Here's to being back with Cupertino!!

    I had the M7 and it was terrible; the battery life and the camera were just plain terrible. I found my perfect android device in the Note 5 but I do like Apple a lot. We'll see if I pull the trigger on buying an iPhone 6S Plus; I'm still trying to justify the purchase and dual wielding :P

    This will be my first apple phone. I was always anti iphone and had been with web OS and then android. I primarily stick with Nexus phones most recently the Nexus 6. IOS seems to have matured over the years. Hopefully I don't regret this move

    I've tried them all...first iPhone was the 5 and liked it but got bored with iOS and switched to android. Went through a few of those (Note 4, Moto series, G2, HTC m8,) and while I loved the customization of android, they all had their quirks and just wasn't as refined as an iPhone. I even dabbled with a blackberry classic for a few months (which I loved but the app market was awful and the small screen got old) finally broke down and bought a 6 which I love. Considering I also have a iPad Air 2 and a MacBook Pro, I plan on staying with an iPhone. Apple has come a long way and while they don't seem to be doing much in the revolutionary department, they still have refined the cell phone experience in a way that the other phone companies have not.

    Just left android after 4 years and started using a 6plus knowing the 6s plus was coming. Fortunately I'm using t mobile jump on demand so I basically am renting the 6 plus. I will not be going back to android. Pre ordered the 6s plus. Everything works. Apps run fast. I came from using a note 4 and note 5 and with 4 gb of ram I still feel this iphone runs apps smoother. Make the jump my friend.

    I came from webOS too. There are a few things iOS has borrowed from webOS thankfully. You'll miss the back button but you'll like the back/forward swipe which is somewhat webOS like. Obviously the multitasking cards and swiping them away is very webOS but still not as nice. Has anything been? I wish they would borrow more especially with notifications. . I think you will like the hardware/software integration. It's nice to have the company making the software designing the hardware. You'll also enjoy getting a software update when everyone else does. Obviously you will miss the customization and tweaking. I kind of missed it at first. Now I just don't care. I got a little burnt out on constantly trying to reinvent my phone experience. In any event the "worst case" scenario is you sell your phone and go back to Android.

    Or jailbreak when iOS 9 exploits get discovered and you can have your customization (Android style) and stability of iOS.

    This will be my first iPhone as well. I've used Android for the last 5 years, and BlackBerry and Sidekick before that. To me, although I still love Android it has become a bit stagnant. I've used an iPad Air for the past year in preparation for making iOS my daily driver. I have a lot of friends who say they're excited to get me on iMessage . I'm also a notorious phone hopper. I have 2-3 flagship devices each year. I think the jump to Apple will keep me from doing that. I'll most likely stick with the 6s+ until the iPhone 7 .

    I felt the same way as you about 2 years ago. Then I tried iOS and really do enjoy it. While I'll never completely give up Android, I do enjoy my iPhone as my daily driver.

    I also have a BlackBerry and Windows phone too. I just like my phones like I like food, a variety that can come with good and bad side effects!

    Two peas in a pod here...

    I've used Android primarily for 3 years and the better part of 5. I feel like it's very stagnant. And not very good for my tech OCD or a bank account with money in it. I'm really excited to get back to iOS full time. And to stop the madness of phone hunting!

    I went from iPhone 5 to a Note 3 because I really wanted a big screen phone. I enjoyed using the Note 3 and eventually upgraded to the Note 4. However, the one thing that both of those phones have had in common is the requirement to clear app cache and partition cache in order to keep the phone running smooth without lagging. I primarily upgraded to the Note 4 because of skipping/stuttering bluetooth when playing streaming music via my two cars head units. Well low and behold the Note 4 does the same thing and I can confirm the Note 5 does it as well. REALLY, you can't create an OS that can stream music without skipping and stuttering. This is a common issue across all Android devices as indicated by all the threads on Google's Support Site. What do all these phones have in common, Android OS.

    With all that said, I ordered myself a 64GB iPhone 6S Plus and I am done with Android in terms of continuing to upgrade. Don't get me wrong there are many things to like about Android and things I will miss. I am so looking forward to the refined OS and hardware all working together to provide a great overall experience. I won't be totally ditching Android, because I'll continue to use the Note 4 for work, but my personal device will be the iPhone going forward.

    I'm in the same boat, upgrading from my commodore 64 which I had strapped to a palm sander handle for mobility and wanted a similar feature set. This hits the spot!
    Dude we get it you think iOS is only suitable for toddlers and people who are 'simple minded'. Is your express purpose in being here on iMore just to make us feel stupid for using iPhone? Go back to Android Central where people actually care about the fragmented mess that Android is oh and have you not been keeping up with the SD 810 overheating issues and how so many 'Fandroids' are lamenting about 2015 being a super sh1tty year for Android phones and oh how the 820 will make all things sunshine and rainbows!!

    That Note 5 is a darn good looking phone. I actually like the design better than the iPhone. But my experience with the Note 3 and 4 pretty much turned me off. Hope you enjoy yours!

    Been there done them all as most of you. I've had BB, Android, Windows and IOS. Last week I finally cancelled my two extra lines and am now down to just two phones. Both IOS, one for work and one for personal. Just got to be too much to deal with and at some point you just have to say enough is enough lol. I'm so integrated with apple at this point it just make sense. All my family has iOS I have multiple apple tv's mac's and also iPads.

    That's been my experience with Android. Enough is enough. I'm just so burnt out on it. I need to focus on other things. iPhone still gives me a great experience that I can rely on while spending my time with my family and not constantly buying/selling/hunting for the perfect Android phone.

    The SD card and removable battery. Those two features are very useful with what I use my Note 3 for. I've got a lot of music, movies, etc on the SD card and when I have to buy a new phone, it's a lot easier to just transfer the card. I like the removable batteries because it helps me when one dies and I'm being too busy body to have time to charge. That can happen if I'm traveling or on the go and using my Note 3 as my entertainment center.

    Like once I'd taken a bus from Florida to Texas when I moved back here to San Antonio. 38 hours I stayed awake and there wasn't a working charging plug on the Greyhounds (Ugh, go figure, 4 buses with broken plugs? It was annoying) So over the course of the trip, I'd keep kept 3 spare batteries. Was about 40% into the third battery at end of trip. I'd had a Huawei Ascend at the time.

    Mostly now my main reason for keeping my Note 3 is that I'm unable to connect any iOS to my car for long periods of time. I've tried everything, they'll initially connect but drop off after about an hour. If I turn the car off, they will not connect again until I un-pair and re-pair the device.

    My Note 3 always stays connected and starts playing my music immediately. For as long as I have the type of radio as I do in my car, I'm most likely going to keep my Note 3. If it just so happens that the phone breaks permanently, it may be time to upgrade the radio!

    Oh and I'm running a really old ROM, so flash player runs really good. This has its uses with certain websites, videos, etc.

    1. Some OEM's have already fixed thermal throttling. The next chip is almost rtm anyway.
    2. Not my problem if a little posse of you here takes everything so personally. I'd say that's a 'you problem'. Use the ignore function.
    It's not that we take everything personally I could give two hoots about which OS you use but what I have a problem is with how you approach us presenting your opinion.
