I am taking the plunge and moving from an iPhone to an Android device. I've been waiting a long time for Android to get to the point that it was fast and responsive enough, with a big enough application warehouse, wide enough support, and a smooth enough experience, to support me. Android is maturing with a consistent, system-wide look-and-feel, almost every major service now has an Android app as the counterpart to its iOS-first experience, and has a bright future with wearables, home automation, and more.

I certainly won't be the first person to change ecosystems entirely. Several have done it before, some looking for change or claim freedom, some aiming to save money, some because someone prompted them, some think they may be conforming by going with the ever-stylish Apple. I am doing it for this reason: for me, Android is now a better platform than iOS.

I've been with Android since the very beginning and all of my phones have been Nexus devices running the purest form of Android. I will never use Apple products because I do not like Apple the company. Aside from the fact that one never really owns an Apple device (you merely use it in the manner Apple deems acceptable) their products are grossly overpriced for the specifications offered. In almost every way, Android phones and tablets are superior and offer many more options such as connectivity, expansion and performance. You've made an excellent choice, congratulations.
