Im looking at going to the dark side, Android and Samsung. Ive made the switch from PCs and flip phones to Macs and iphones for a few years. I have 2 phones and find the droid is beating the apple one.

Kind of a feeler thread. Id want to sell the whole set. Phone, watch, watch charger base with 3 usb outlets, battery case, battery/memory case 32gb, to name a few. No boxes, original cables or chargers. Its a verizon unlocked phone being used on the tracfone bring your own phone plan.

For me, iPhone is the "dark side" I am slowly being pulled towards. I was windows phone for years until that fell apart, then I got on Android the past year and its been just OK, my mid-range Motorola phone has let me down twice and now I have agreed to start learning xcode and help my friend develop his ios app for the itunes store so I got myself a used mac and a used iphone for testing/development. If it goes good, I may switch to an iphone for my personal phone when they announce the 7S next month. We'll see.

Well, right off the non apple phone has an sd card slot for expansion. I had a windows phone and droid. Some droids are limit where most will see up to 200 gb. Even at that some of the system memory is needed for app installation even if you put the app to the sd card. Ive had a few virgin droid phones that once you update all the crap it came with you got low memory errors. Although apple treats the memory as one chunk for apps and data its much more limited and unexpandable.

Another issue is many droid manufactures drop the previous model like a hot potato. You never get an update to the OS and you are on your own to root and load another rom. Many cases doing this you loose the ability to run some apps and any feature that the device came with its own software.

So, Samsung seems about the only brand I will buy for droid as they seem to have a lot of good features and a good mix of system ram to expandable ram. Samsung for the longest time had the ability to run 2 apps on the same screen.

Now apple products talk to each other and you can use them interchangeability. >:D For a computer you can always load up a thumb drive with the hackentoish software and turn any PC into a mac. The phones are constanly updated and easily slows down as time goes on and ultimately the ability to run the newer OS stops. Now they are on a 64 bit only software and the 32 bit models quit updating. The 5 is a 32 bit model.

Yeah, I was a PC guy then bought a used macbook from a coworker. Loved it and bought a macpro. I have windows and mac on it in a dual boot and ironically it runs windows faster than the mac os.

I also play with chromebooks, raspberry pis and banana pi computers. >:D
