    Welcome, I was a long time Android user (since the "OG Droid" days) and made the switch a couple months ago as well. It was definitely a bit of adjustment as you've found out yourself in some aspects, but overall the experience is great. As far as the 16x9 thing goes, I'd just take it in the normal 4:3 ratio and then crop it to 16x9 if you really want a widescreen effect. Many phone cameras that offer both ratios already are doing this. I think the higher end Lumias were the exceptions.

    I have to agree about the stock keyboard, I was using swiftkey for years on Android though so the ability to use it on iPhone now really helped. It's not quite as good as the Android version, but close enough that I don't mind much. I never use the voice dictation function anyway. The only thing I really miss vs. the Android version is long pressing the letter keys to get numbers, symbols, etc.

    I had the Note 5 and then I switched to the Nexus 6P for a brief moment but ended up coming back to IOS. Both android devices were great but there's really no comparison with Apple's ecosystem. First the apps look and function way better on IOS (Material design has helped a bit though). Second the iPhone works perfect with the bluetooth in my 2015 model car whereas with the Note 5 and Nexus 6P always had connection and call quality issues. Lastly I own 2 Macs and continuity and handoff are so convenient and easy to use. Apple has always had the upper hand in software quality even though it has been slipping a little lately. Not to mention the amount of accessories available for the iPhone is mind blowing. I also got tired of looking for ways to improve my battery life, turning things off, trying different apps but always ended up with inconsistent results, with the 6S Plus I leave everything on and still have about 50% left when I get home at night.

    I am amazed at the battery life. When I first used the 6S Plus I was disappointed, even though I didn't wait to judge after the "break in" period. Now that the battery is conditioned, I get 12 hours of use and I am a heavy user! I just put my phone on the charger at 40%, it's 11pm, and it was off the charger since 1pm. So yeah, that is awesome!!!

    I cannot thank you enough for the tip on the program!!! I downloaded it and I am in love. Easy to learn and adjusting ISO, Ratio and anything else if phenomenal!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
    I love this app too. I got it free on sale. Adjusting iOS and shutter speed allows you to take great low light shots and videos. That overcomes the low light weakness of the stock app.
