    Yeah, you started last time when you were getting ready to buy a phone and bought an iPhone8. I am waiting on iPhoneXR. Will only be $50 more than an 8. I am on my second iPhone a 6s. Love that it connects with my iMacs.

    I have always had an iphone but recently I washed my dads android in the washer and it still works perfectly. That was pretty cool.

    Always have had Android, I think I'd be lost on an iPhone. No complaints. It's just a phone to me, I don't do anything creative on it. Only learned to take a photo recently, but..I'm an old fart.

    I have seen this kind of thing said often and I don't get it...I'm an IT professional (now retired) and I've always found iOS to be far simpler than Android...relative to user interface and access to apps, etc. I guess we are all different for sure!

    I tried an iPad and ended up sending it back after the trial period. My brain (perhaps poisoned by years of pc use) just didn't seem to connect with the Apple system and it was anything but intuitive for me. Think I need to try again though, as I am also increasingly annoyed by Microsoft and the relentless, unavoidable, inconvenient updates.

    iOS and MacOS get updates, too, Baboo,,,but not weekly in most cases!

    This is usually my "argument" against androids. They are very difficult to navigate IMO.

    Husband has an iPhone, I have only ever had Android and I HATE when I have to use his. So much different than Android. Obviously if an iPhone was all I ever used, I would probably feel similar about Android.
