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.

Nice reading, Have used Android before but after I bought a BlackBerry z10 I can't go back. I only get mad trying to use my wife's Sony z1 and more trying to do something on a IPhone.

On my phone I just swipe with my finger on the screen, no button click to unlock, close a app or anything.

Swipe up and right you get in to your mail/messages. Only swipe up will show running app. Swipe down will show your other status. If the phones locked you can still read messages if you click on them.. It just works. z10 has no fast hardware but the os make's it fast. Thes days I also can run Android app without converting them (I do need the files thou).

Before 10.2.1 there was a lot of problems and with 10.3 it will even get better ;)

So test a BlackBerry ;)
