    I like the design. Looks "different", and thats what Google go for. But my biggest issue is Android. I just prefer iOS. Not an Apple worshiper or anything, quite simply - its just much easier to use.

      I'm leaning toward the opposite. I'm considering an Android phone for my next device as I feel iOS has become a huge, inconsistent, bloated mess. I'm not sure about anyone else, but iOS 11 has made my iPad more difficult to use, not easier.

        Yer, I'm with you. iOS 11 is all over the place in terms of UX consistency. Super annoying to deal with across devices, little less so across apps (but still annoying). But I'm just not convinced Android has enough switching power to convert me. Maybe I'm just stuck in my ways, but iOS still looks good enough to stay with (for now).

        I'm with you. I will most likely be switching to Android for the first time in my life (minus a brief interlude with the Moto X in 2012 for 2 weeks until I dropped it and it broke) when my iPhone 6s is paid off.

      Android has come along way in the last couple years. I switched from iOS to Android a year ago and it was a breath of fresh air. I honestly believe that Android (starting with Nougat) has surpassed iOS in terms of design consistency, simplicity, and features. I encourage you to give it a try!

      You'd think after using a phone your whole life you could graduate from something so "easy to use" and simple like iOS.

        "Graduating" would imply you're moving up to a more advanced level. For me, I'm not sure Android is more advanced. Advanced means different things to different people. With a device that I use every day, it means being efficient and easy to use.

        I actually want to move off iOS, sick of Apple and their monopoly on the market. But Android just doesn't cut it for me... yet.
