Android vs. iPhone

I’ve had an iPhone since it first came out in 2007.  I loved it….. but now there’s so many memory things to update/upgrade… the cost of the iPhone…. it’s a lot!  But most of my friends and family are iPhone users.  Does that mean I should stay on iPhone?  No…. and if you know me…. you’ll know that I research the crap outta everything I do or think about doing.

Verdict:

If I did get an android, it would have to be a Google flagship phone that automatically sends out updates like the iPhone.  Right now, I think the Google Pixel 2 or Google pixel 2 XL would potentially be a great buy for me.  Here’s my pick: Google Pixel 2 XL.

Instead of Facetime: Google Duo

Instead of iMessage: WhatsApp

Instead of iCloud Photos: Google Photos

Instead of iCloud library/books: Google Drive, DropBox

Cell phone option instead of AT&T: Google Project Fi
