What android phone?

I came to iPhone from android and they the pretty much the same once you get used to them. Only thing i don't like about android phones is that you can't get new updates sometimes. Without the updates you can't get certain apps. Also they take way longer to charge and die faster than iPhones.

It was the single biggest mind fuck I think I've ever experienced, going from something so simple to something you have to click 9 different things while licking your elbow to achieve. I'll never go back to a droid based device, I literally hated it so much I fixed my iphone within a week of it messed up and switched back to it. And I don't think I've seen a phone freeze/ lock up so many times and it would randomly kill apps mid use, and it wasn't that the phone was old or anything it was brand new outta the box. IMO stick with apple.

Stick with current iPhone 4 or get samsung note 2 for free

Everything I read said the battery life is way better. Basically it's a better phone over all just more complicated

I'm also good with technology so I can adjust and learn quickly. (I'm going to be a computer programmer). So if you aren't good with technology, the switch might be like what happened to sole.

Been there, done that. Tried droid after droid after droid, and I'm back to an iPhone. I did like that I could customize the droid's software so easily, but I also like to use my phone as a phone. No matter what droid, whether it was stock or not, it turned in to a slow glitchy mess in 6 months or less. I've been close to 6 months without syncing my iPhone and it's just as good as the day it came out of the box. Don't switch IMO.

Androids do tend to glitch. My s2 worked for about 6 months and then it just randomly started freezing and overheating.

All in all, iPhone is probably better.

just do what I do get a car charger, every time I get in my truck I plug my phone upto my stereo and it charges it, so by the end of the day I'll still have at least 80% battery left

Battery life isn't what bothers me. My phone will freeze, crash, close out of apps and is super slow

Never had an apple product myself. Two co-workers were hard core into apple stuff. Both got fed up and went android. Right down to apple tv, laptops, everything.

If you don't want to ever be able to change anything, stay apple. You want to be able to do things to it, get android. # of aps, no real difference. Customization/not & multitasking are big differences. Plus if you want a bigger screen of course.

I went from the iPhone to the note 1 when it came out. Had it 2 days and returned it. Hated it you can do more with it but it's a pain to use. It's not used friendly like an iPhone is. Then I tried 4s to galaxy s3 and have the s3 to the gf and kept my iphone. Hated it. I tried twice and couldn't do it. Now I have the 5s and love it. Unless you have always used an android you don't wanna go to it. It sucks. That's just what I think.

I use the note 2. Battery life is 10x better then an iphone. Of course battery life depends on how the phone is used. It's not complicated , just more options to choose from. Go to you tube and look at some videos on the note 2. Btw screen size is awesome! I could never go back to a small screen. Hit me up if you need some help setting it up(if you get it).

as for the 6 month glitch people are talking about I rarely see issues with the note 2. Had mine since the day it came out and no issues. The iphone is slow due to 3g only. Note 2 is 4g. Note 2 is a quad core processor. Speed won't be a issue with it.
