    I was looking for this thread and did not find it so I posted this in an old thread I found. You can move it here if you want.

    after using android for many years, I think I may be making a switch to IOS. The family sharing is becoming too much of an obstacle. My kids are getting older, and they all use facetime with each other, and when I have my ipad around, then with me as well.....

    Anyone in my situation? I still like the use of android better as I find it generally better at sharing, but IOS got family stuff on lockdown.

    Considering that Samsung refuses to debloat its Touchwiz skin, that it bootlocks its devices to all hell on top of that, and that HTC/Google seems determined to use software as an inferior option for image stabilization in their cameras for their Pixel phones, I think this stands to become the best Android phone on the market when it is released.

    Yeah, I used to be on the Samsung Galaxy train for years, but after trying an LG phone with stock Android I never looked back. And the lack of bloatware is glorious

    Get a V30. Is your G5 still under warranty?

    Yes. They're sending me a brand new G5 but I have to send mine back. Being a long time Verizon customer helped. They even arranged same-day shipping. I'm thrilled. @BoogerDawson

    Android is far superior to iOS. Apple sure has some dedicated fanboys.

    after many many years on android, I'm about to switch to iOS....... sure, the operating system IS better, software reliability is a wash as well, but holy fuck, that USB-C is total trash. My charger is about to break again, 2 times in a year FFS. I fucken baby my phone, while every kid in my family has an ipad, they are rough with it, and it survives the test of time. My son's ipad air is like going on 3 years now, and still works great. The android fingerprint reader sure as hell works better than any apple version, but that goddamn charger is the only and last straw.

    Going to be a bitch to use iOS fulltime as I do own an ipad air, but I have no choice at this point.

    Whenever I see or hear someone touting the advantages of Android over iOS but using a Samsung with Touchwiz, I tune out. That's like someone arguing about the superiority pizza over burgers, but eats at Chuck-E-Cheese.

    I'm seriously considering the Essential Phone from Andy Rubin. That Titanium and ceramic is super nice and very close to stock Android.

    The only thing holding me back is the sub par camera (compared to other flagships) and the lack of waterproofing.
