So, I decided to go for an android phone this time around, the first time I have moved away from Apple since getting hold of the iPhone 3. I was unhappy with the lack of changes, I felt I needed something new and fresh.
I opted for a Samsung Galaxy S3, well, looks like I'm back off to the phone shop to get myself an iPhone 5. The idea that I have to have anti virus software on my phone seems ridiculous. The idea that I have to reduce the performance of my phone to make the battery last three quarters of a day even more so.
NEVER have I been caught without power on an iPhone, this happened on my first Saturday with three S3. Stuck in traffic, no phone! The performance appears to lag behind my 4s in real world use. I am very disappointed in this phone.
I always used to say I'm not a apple fanboy, and although boy can hardly be used to describe me, I do feel that I am an apple fan. There are other, technical issues, that I could go into but they may be due my lack of knowledge. Yet it is precisely this that makes the difference, to sound like an apple PR the iPhone just works.
I appreciate that the maps debacle has been a blot on Apple's copy book, but my iphone has always just worked, never crashed and never has serious issues with my work exchange server.
Maybe I'm just missing something with Android, may be it is the OS of those who wish to display their technical testees, perhaps I never will get the flexibility some say it offers, perhaps it is me, or maybe not. Either way, I like Apple, I like the iPhone. Until Android offers me the speed, power, stability and ease of use I think I will stick with Apple and their iPhone.
