Should I Switch To Android?

Sunday, June 28th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Android, iOS, Quick Tips

When it comes to technology people can get attached to brands and operating systems like some folks do to sports teams.

Take this question from a reader: “My wife and I bought two iPhones and an iPad from our phone provider as part of a special deal. We were just getting the hang of them and liked them. Now my daughter says we should take them back and get Android phones because they are much better and let you add additional storage. Is she right?”


No! She’s not right. And not because I’m weighing in on the superiority of iPhones to Androids. I have an Android phone and an Android-based Kindle tablet and I love them. But if you like your Apple devices, there’s no reason to take them back.

Yes, some Android devices offer expandable storage. If that’s important to you, maybe you should buy Android. But more than likely you have plenty of space on your Apple devices. Bottom line: Apple and Android operating systems both work fine for most people’s needs.

If you’re happy with your device, there’s no need to switch. Would you trade in your new Chevy because someone said, “Hey you should drive a Ford!”

Use what you like.

    I became disappointed with apple products when I wanted to replace the battery in my I touch or iPod and was told they would just exchange my unit for a refurbished unit with a new battery, and for a cost of 75$.

    In my unofficial survey, when I ask why someone chose a Droid, they go on and on about studying the apps available, etc. and intellectually explaining their choice. When I ask an iphone person, all they say is, “Oh, I love my Iphone!!” A much more feeling experience. I am 67 and always a windows person. But when we got our iphones, I understand the attitude. There is just something about the apple system that anticipates my needs and questions that Microsoft never did.

    If someone would suggest I switch or try something other then what I have, especially in technology———I’d run to my computer and open WORLD START. Either ask a question or look what has been previously been written.

    I love my iPhone and iPad but admit I would like expandable space on my 16 GB iPad Air 2. I remove apps I rarely use but I’m running out of space. I don’t keep any music on it as I have an iPod Classic.
