I like more the G products than others... It fit my needs. If you want a good Android experience, take a Nexus or a Pixel, but if you want something else, take another brand.
I think, if Google can make the hardware more often on the Nexus/Pixel, their are going to rule the cellphone market.

But why would you want to? Surely this should be the other way round... Android to iPhone

I am an Android user (Nexus 5X) and occassionally get sick of the bugs (they are rare but still piss me off, also in google products in general), but apperently getting an iphone won't solve my problem so.... Guess i will just deal with it then.

It is obvious you are suffering from Ignoramus. It is a fact and has been reported everywhere that IOS since IOS 5 has more bugs than Android. If you read anything you would have known that.
IOS does not display crashes. It hides the crash report and restarts the app, while Android displays the crash report and gives you option what to do. I know this because I am a developer.

Please read before commenting on stuff you know nothing about.

I do not know about windows phone so I cant comment on that.

iOS has its bugs, Windows 10 has its bugs, but Android has more bugs than iOS and Windows combined. That's why it's an unreliable OS, when compared to these.

The number of times Android and its apps force close or the device needs a restart or a factory reset is much greater than the number of times a Window/iOS device would need these.

After 1 year of use:
- Android = 3 factory resets, and a device restart is needed every 2-3 days
- iOS = no factory resets needed, and a device restart is only needed 1-2 times a month or after an update
- Windows phone = no factory resets needed, and a device restart is needed only after the OS receives an update.

IOS that has been less stable than Android since IOS 5? Go read a book.

I use to listen to you people when I didn't own an iPhone or iPad. After owning them I can say all this nonsense about ios not freezing is a lie. As a heavy user I have made my iPhone and iPad freeze many times.

I can honestly say people who use IOS only make calls and read text. That's the only way it is butter smooth 100% of the time.

"ios is Almost bug-free" holds for me. This thing has always been super reliable and smooth. It's the reason why I would never buy an Android phone again, although some of them have nice hardware (note 7) or price (one plus 3)

Unresponsive screen is rampant
When I make a call and the network goes off the screen goes entirely black for almost half a minute.
You guys should stop extolling iOS/iPhone like it's perfect!

Why would someone even consider switching from an (almost) bug-free, streamlined OS such as iOS (or Windows) to something that force closes apps, has numerous bugs, is filled with security holes, and performance-wise is the slowest of the bunch.

that's pretty good move from google
