5 reasons why I chose iOS over Android

At the beginning of January it will be 5 years since I bought my first iPhone… I bought a low-quality smartphone, slightly overpaid, but for all the time it did not disappoint me. Despite the fact that even then they looked askance at the iPhone 6 Plus and considered it not the most successful Apple smartphone, it was a completely new experience for me. Before that, I had been using Windows Phone for 5 years: if Nokia Lumia had not been out of order right before the New Year, my acquaintance with iOS would have happened much later. I have no regrets: life has shown that the iPhone is the best choice. Let’s go back to 2017 for a while: I’m telling you why I chose the iPhone over the Android smartphone.

I tell you why I chose iOS in due time

IPhone interface

Until the moment I bought the iPhone 6 Plus, I only used Symbian, Windows Phone and a little e-book on Android. You see, after 5 years with Microsoft’s OS it is very difficult to choose a new smartphone. In comparison, a change of place of residence suggests itself: what to do with yourself, leaving your home is not very clear. The same thing happened to me in early January 2017.

Deadly number: iPhone 7 bought on credit and iPhone 6 Plus bought with last money

I did not dare to buy a new smartphone on Windows Phone: even then the system began to bend slowly, people fled from it like from a sinking ship, and it was not entirely reasonable to spend money on Microsoft Lumia 950. Given the fact that e-book on Android was quite problematic, and the OS did not impress, iOS seemed to me the most understandable, although it was not devoid of shortcomings. Thanks to this, I got used to it very quickly – just like when I got acquainted with Windows Phone.

iTunes for iPhone

Well, basically, in iTunes everything is clear from the very beginning.

Despite the fact that many people hate iTunes (and I, too), especially for Windows, I had experience with this program by that time. For two years I was transferring music to my iPod Shuffle and got used to how things worked. Apple player played an important role: iPhone 7 without headphone jack just came out, which meant you could easily switch between iPod and iPhone.

ITunes had a lot of cool features back then, and what impressed me most was the ability to create a backup. Unfortunately, on Windows Phone, this feature was implemented as poorly as possible. Getting to know iTunes was critical when choosing an iPhone.

Battery in iPhone

2017 is the time when pro autonomy of Android smartphones joking, probably, all for years to come. This Android flagship is now capable of working longer, although it still loses to the iPhone. And in those days it was quite normal to sit with Samsung near the outlet. The iPhone did a great job: even then it had a lower battery capacity, but the iOS optimization and the processor’s energy efficiency allowed the smartphone to be used for a long time.

The iPhone charged much faster than the Nokia, and the battery performed better than the Android

Compared to Nokia Lumia – heaven and earth. My Windows Phone smartphone was discharged in a couple of hours after launching the game and the player at the same time. I was scared of repeating the same scenario with an Android smartphone, knowing that my boss kept his Samsung charged all the time. With the iPhone, none of my friends had such problems – another reason why I chose iOS.

ICloud in iPhone

I didn’t understand Android at all, but I knew a thing or two about the Apple device ecosystem. For example, what an iCloud account gives. I sold my iPad 4 the year before, having previously backed up my photos, games, and other important documents. I really wanted to use this function again, especially when all the data is in the smartphone.

iCloud is one of the reasons why I chose the iPhone

Windows Phone had problems with this: if you want to transfer data to a new smartphone, you will have to suffer. Lots of. Given the fact that recover data in android, according to the stories of my friends, it was through the stump-deck, iOS was again the winner.

IOS settings on iPhone

The first versions of Windows Phone did not have a lot of settings – for this the OS was disliked by everyone, and the owners were considered insane. Over time, it became more interesting to customize Lumia: first Windows Phone 8.1, then Windows 10 got interesting chips, but they were all within reason. Android to this day has a lot of different options and switches – I’m still confused about the settings Android TV on TV.

IOS settings don’t take getting used to. You don’t even need to go into them – everything is already set up for you.

I wanted something simpler, a smartphone in which it was enough to set a cute wallpaper for the screensaver – the iPhone 6 Plus was perfect for this. By the way, I still practically don’t change anything in the iOS settings, because everything works fine anyway.

Windows Phone was a special operating system that I remember with a kind word. But iOS was the most suitable for me, in some moments they even somewhat resembled each other. The same thing is happening now: take a look, now there are widgets, tiles in iOS (for example, in the Weather application).
