  • - My name is Manny and I've been an Android

  • user for my whole life.

  • I have never used an iPhone.

  • I just have never really spent more

  • than like 10 seconds on someone's iPhone.

  • Right now, I have the Samsung Galaxy S7

  • and I've had that for about two years.

  • You know, it's just kind of one of those cases

  • where I've only ever had Androids,

  • so I'm not even sure off the top of my head

  • what I specifically like about it.

  • One of my favorite things is the ability to add

  • a widget to your home screen.

  • So I like to have my Gmail widget at the top

  • and I can kind of scroll through

  • without actually opening the app.

  • It's just like a really nice, quick access thing.

  • Well, I'm switching to an iPhone

  • because I genuinely think my life will be

  • a little bit more seamless.

  • 100% I felt iPhone peer pressure.

  • I've been berated for at least four years

  • to get an iPhone by my friends.

  • I don't like to look at it as me giving in,

  • but that's kind of what happened.

  • So, it's been about a week since

  • I've been using the iPhone XS.

  • It's just really different than the Android

  • and to be fair, I'm grading it against my Samsung Galaxy S7,

  • which was about two years old.

  • The unboxing experience was kind of exciting

  • because it was my first iPhone.

  • So when I unboxed the new iPhone,

  • I assumed there'd be that dongle

  • so that I could plug in my old headphones.

  • I have pretty expensive earbuds.

  • They were $120 and it really sucks

  • to not be able to use them on an iPhone.

  • I ended up not buying a dongle.

  • Like, I don't want to spend more money.

  • I already have my expensive headphones.

  • I thought I would miss the fingerprint sensor on Android,

  • but Face ID is really seamless too.

  • The camera is great and now I find myself taking photos

  • that I don't even post anymore.

  • Like, I just like taking photos on this new camera.

  • So when I had my Android phone,

  • it felt like you were getting notifications,

  • like just the necessary ones,

  • like the ones you actually needed to know.

  • On iPhone, it feels a little messy.

  • It feels like they're giving me every single

  • notification that they could possibly find.

  • The learning curve with the software

  • has been a process for me

  • because on Android phones there's a back button.

  • I found that with iPhone, on iOS,

  • the back button is built into the app.

  • So it's like kind of at the top left.

  • So I still find myself reaching to the bottom left

  • of the phone to go back to the previous screen.

  • The swiping gestures are completely different than Android.

  • That is the hardest thing I'm getting used to.

  • One thing I miss from Android is that email widget.

  • Like, I really used that a lot.

  • One of the most annoying things about iPhone

  • is that to connect to WiFi,

  • I have to go all the way into the settings.

  • It's like at least four or five button presses

  • before I get to where I can connect to WiFi.

  • On Android, you can do that so easily.

  • You just swipe from the top and then

  • you hit the little WiFi signal.

  • Outside of that, I'm kind of happy I made the switch.

  • I think everything I don't like about the iPhone

  • is a matter of me just not being used to it yet.

  • So now it's been about two weeks since I got the iPhone XS

  • and I'm liking it more and more as I use it.

  • For the most part, I can do anything

  • I need to pretty quickly.

  • I did end up downloading the Google keyboard to use it,

  • but it's annoying because I have to change it

  • to the Google keyboard every time.

  • It's almost like Apple does not want me to use

  • the Google keyboard, but I'm still gonna keep doing it

  • because I love the swipe feature.

  • I would think it would last longer than my older phones did.

  • I don't know, I guess we'll just have to wait

  • until a new iPhone comes out to see how long this one lasts.

  • After two weeks of using the iPhone,

  • I feel like my life is a little bit easier.

  • Things are more seamless than the Android,

  • but my experience hasn't been that where

  • I'm like sold on iPhone for the rest of my life.

  • I could very well go back to Android

  • depending on what kind of phones they come out with.

  • But before that I did have a Windows

  • phone for about two years.
