Android

Do not be mislead by the title of this page: Android by and large is the best mobile operating system out there however as a fan of it, I cannot help but notice certain things which warrant attention and should be fixed right away because they are simply crucial.

This is from the same author of the similarly-styled Linux, Windows 10 and iOS lists.

I think you missed the part about walking into a store. In many parts of the country, there are no sony stores nor carriers that have them in their stores.

Getting a sony phone is becoming extremely difficult in the US in person. You can order one online, but then you haven't tried it out to see if you like it.

I completely agree with the original poster on this one. I almost switched to an android device on my last upgrade. I have been an iOS user since the 3g but am getting sick of some of the issues with apple products lately. I wanted a camera that was better than 8MP and I wanted a phone that was smaller than 5". Even then, AT&T only had one android device in the store that wasn't at least 5" and it was a very lowend Samsung. The specs were worse than the iPhone 5 I was replacing.

The only phone in the store that I actually liked from a hardware perspective was a Nokia and that had Windows phone on it so it was a non starter. It also had a 5MP camera which was a step backwards.

I reluctantly bought an iPhone 6 that day even though it's huge. I don't hate it as much as I thought, but I miss being able to use the entire screen one handed. I had to change the layout of all my apps on screen as a result and occasionally it's still a problem. Now that apple has decided to release smaller phones, but with worse specs than the iPhone 6, I'm still stuck with a touch decision on the next upgrade cycle. I may just keep the 6 and wait until the lowend catches up to what I have and evaluate what is out there.

If I could get a Google Nexus phone smaller than 5 inches or even at 5 at this point with decent specs, I'd switch. I just don't want to buy a phone site unseen.

As for the sony products, I thought about ordering one last year but then I read their waterproof seal wasn't waterproof and that many people had problems with it.

I also got a free LG tablet with that iPhone so I've had a chance to try android finally and it's decent.
