    However, as of yet, I still hate the OS. Maybe time will tell, but the lack of a proper back button, awkward multi-tasking and bizarre file management is frustrating me right now.

    Re: Do you like your iphone?

    I was an avid Android user, (S7) but just switched to iOS 10, iPhone 7 Plus. Fancied a change and absolutely love how both hardware and software work seamlessly together. Everything just seems to work, smoothly! Can't say over time I won't consider switching back to Android, but if google get to the same experience as iOS? Then I might switch back!

    Re: Do you like your iphone?

    I started of with iPhones then moved to Android a couple of years ago with the LG G3 due to the price of iPhones. I did enjoy my LG G3 and the android experience, but I couldn't wait to get back to ios. Android is ok, but everything works so seamlessly in IOS.

    Apple devices seem to age slower too (I can easily use an iPhone for 4 - 5 years but my android devices need upgrading after 2 - 3). If you have an iPad or Mac, everything syncs beautifully between them. My history is the same across all three devices. I can pick up phone calls or reply to text messages on any of the devices. I can start doing one thing on one device and finish it on another.

    I find Android and IOS are both good systems and sometimes it just comes down to personal preference, but I personally love my iPhone 6 Plus and would never go back to Android.

    Re: Do you like your iphone?

    I've had a 5c for a few years now; liked it for the first couple, have hated it for the last couple roughly. It's slow, not in comparison to more modern phones, but in comparison to how it was when I got it - that's after a complete factory reset, making sure I have enough spare memory, and all the other stuff - it just can't handle the modern OS. Stuff is buggy. How much it's Apple wanting to force upgrades on their customers, and how much the app-makers insist on upgrades that are optimized for newer phones, I don't know, but the situation is getting untenable for me. My choices are to keep this phone and use the apps less - co-incidentally I've decided recently to delete social media and check e-mails less, so I'm naturally becoming less reliant on it, and I'm also lazy af, so that seems most likely; get the smallest samsung or sony I can find, assuming it's around the same size as my 5c; or, lastly, I might consider getting a dumbphone.

    That's interesting. I used my iPhone 3GS for about 5 years with no problems. In fact I still use I as an iPod. I do think the 5C was a bit cheaply made and underspeced though. One things for sure, Apple are such a greedy company so I wouldn't put it past them to be trying to get you to upgrade.

    I like my iPhone 6 and I think the size of iPhone 7 Plus is better, but larger than 7 Plus will not be my choice.

    Re: Do you like your iphone?

    I have an iPhone 6 for work, and a s7 edge for personnel.

    I can't get on with the iPhone. It just isn't as intuitive as android, no a swipe down for quick access features, no one click back button/multi window. Restrictive custom/tweak ability... Etc etc

    Swipe up for customisable features, down for notifications etc. Double press to see all open apps and then select the one you want.

    But a lot is what you are used to. I found switching from Android to Apple a bit odd (although I had been using an iPad which is very similar) but I now found going back to Android very strange. It’s not that it’s better or worse, just different. There are a couple of features I liked on Android but don’t have on IOS, and vice versa. What is more important is the ecosystem, and for me, the Apple ecosystem gives me the best of all worlds, but of course YMMV.

    Re: Do you like your iphone?

    I had iphone 2/3/4 then moved to android with the samsung note series 2 & 4

    I've been back with iphone 6S for a while, but may be moving to android again soon

    I never really got out of using the note4 big screen for browsing, and it stays in my laptop bag
    still due to many 2FA being on google authenticator on it...

    Really, on a basic level any device with the essentials lastpass, evernote and dropbox will work for me.

    Re: Do you like your iphone?

    Hate it. Only have it as I got it for free. I brought the 3GS and it was fine then got this 5S for free. Going to android as soon as I see something that interests me and has a headphone jack.

    The only thing I still love about my iphone is the fact that I ditched it 4 years ago.
