Here's what happened when I left Android and switched to an iPhone 7

The X Compact is very midrange. Not bad but it leaves a lot to be desired, camera wise.

I finally switched to android this past weekend (S7) and i am blown away. Everything i used to download and apply with a JB (which took hours, sometimes days) is already included in this phone. My wife has an iphone and we have shared calenders which i was able to sync to my S7 calender easily. I love the freedom of choosing default and general apps that I like/want, i love the SD card capability, the look and feel of the phone and the amazing camera. Cheers
Also, Notability is an incredible note taking app available only for iOS and MacOS...with some advantages over OneNote. I can find nothing nearly comparable with Android.
Still, it's hard to walk away....especially with the Note 8 in the near future.
When you play back the audio, you can touch any part of your typed or handwritten notes, and the audio will immediately go that the part of the recording.
This is a key part of my work in life, so it's a big deal. A surface tablet could possibly work, but the short battery life and some stability issues make it too risky. Notability has an excellent, super reliable, light weight app on all Apple platforms, too....syncs up nicely across them.
I searched for a reliable, well designed note taking (and recording app) for Android, but was stunned to find nothing. There was maybe one, but the reviews were horrible.
I have tried using a separate voice recorder while taking notes (using OneNote), but that was buggy with horrible audio. Perhaps I'l keep experimenting. I'd love to stick with Android because I'm fully "googled" in terms of Docs, Calendar, some Keep, email, Drive, etc.
At work, the powers that be decided to give us each a 3rd screen; an Apple iPad. I feared it, because my non-techie wife was always asking me "how do I...?" on her iPhone. As a committed android user, I had no idea about anything on her phone. But now that I'm getting used to the iPad, I'm seriously thinking about my next phone. It may just be an iPhone. More later.
https://youtu.be/s5VGB4GdShQ Sorry guys... I'm Android user for more than 4 years and I still got my Nexus 5X... but the iPhone suits me better. The "customizability" is overrated. The updates on Android are not received over the air equally. Overall feel is laggy and the reason for that is the not good memory management of the Linux underneath and the virtualization of the java and the java itself. iOS is based on BSD which is Unix, which is better than Linux and there is no Java and virtualization (apps are written on Objective C). Yes, it is a closed system but that ensures stability. And also when an app is developed by someone, Apple are testing it for 3 months before they publish it on the App Store (that includes the updates). Don't get me wrong. Competition is a very good thing and we, the users, are the winners here because we get to choose what suits us best and the competitors are evolving fast :) So whatever you choose don't hesitate to try the other thing and don't hate the opposite thing, because you never know when you're going to start loving it (as it happend to me) ;) Life works that way! Cheers
Laggy in MArshmallow and Nougat is non existent, that is a problem of the far past's android versions together with Java issues, come back to end of '16 and of course mid-range to high end hardware, not some obscure low end, 3rd world phone or tablet.

Android is not that.
Android is not that.
Nexus user: "Nice to get updates and betas.. sweet deal .. " Google : "Yes, it was a great run, now, we are going to raise the price to match Apple, take all the hardware cues from Apple, and call Nexus Pixel... get your credit cards ready guys! Oh, and we May keep a few of you Nexus folks in the loop for updates about ... half of whatever Apple does for it's users... enjoy your phone while you can, and watch out for malware!"
