    Hello everyone! My name is Blair and I’m a 38 year old single father of a wonderful 6 year old daughter, Kenadie. I live in right outside Philadelphia in Levittown.

    So the traitor part ? I have been on Android’s since literal day 1 when I preordered this crazy looking litttle phone called the G1 from T-Mobile.
    I’ve worked on ROM teams and used to it mess with whatever phone I had multiple times a day. But it just got old and boring. I didn’t want to mess with my phone anymore and just wanted one that worked great without fussing with it. So I got the Pixel XL. For a while I had what I wanted. No needing root and no ROM flashing to work great.
    Long story short, a buddy of mine was first to come to iPhone early this year. After I talked with him about iPhone for a long time and after my pixel xl and android just kept getting slow and buggy. I made the switch. And I’m in love. I’m also feeling like an ***** for bashing Apple for so many years.

    I love this phone. I’ve also seen how other iphone uses treat others and wow! No real bashing and no real trolling? That’s great! Lol

    Anyways, enough with the long *** post. I’m glad I swithded and am so excited to keep finding all the cool stuff about iOS and iPhone.
    So I’m here to stay. Sorry Android but I need this polish and consistency and that’s I’m having on my iPhone.

    Welcome. What iPhone did you get? They are great phones and I used to be the same with bashing on them. iPhones are great, lots of apps, clean, fast, just perfect for a busy life. :-) glad you’re here :-)

    I chose the space grey iPhone 8 plus. 64gig. I also got a second hand Nike Watch Series 2. My lg urbane just wouldn’t stay connected to the iPhone. I’m also in love with my Apple Watch. Lol. The battery life’s insanely good. So far I’m so very happy with this switch to iOS

    Glad you’ve found the right phone for you. I to have Consistently bashed iPhone without ever owning one, so when an opportunity presented itself I purchased a iPhone 7 just to have as a 2nd phones and actually gain some experience with the platform. My main phone is a Galaxy Note 8.

    What I’ve learned so far? For me , iPhones are solid devices, good hardware and iOS is very solid software no real complaints. But it hasn’t blown me away. If I had to choose 1 for me I would go with Android. It may be familiarity, idk but if I could try to use imagery I would say Android in its current state feels like a big open city where anything is possible (good or bad) like NYC. On the other hand iOS feels like a small southern town where everything runs at an even calm pace, no excitement, no surprises just a solid due as expected everyday pace. I hope that makes sense, it’s the best example I can provide for my thoughts.

    Don’t get me wrong, in actual real life I like small towns, and honestly I’ve come to enjoy iOS! I won’t bash it again, unless it’s warranted lol. I now like having both ecosystems, my note 8 is my big beautiful city with all the glamour and lights that u occasionally need a break from and my iPhone 7 is that super comfortable, scenic rural town in the mountains everyone should visit every now and then.
