You need to experience both to understand this. I have a note 10+ and I love what I can do with my phone. I do miss using an iPhone . It really just works.

However the level of finesse and attention to detail on iOS is far better and superior compared to android.

I guarantee you don't see an article like this for when Android 11 hits

Daaaamnit, 25 Jun 2020Been using Android for the last 10 years. Changed 4 android... more” Phones have gotten better and can handle the latest softwares. Why on earth are we forced to buy new devices?”

Because Android companies wouldn’t get anything from you keeping their phone for long time. It would be bad business for them. Apple have their ecosystem which making billions for them every quarter, so it’s good business for Apple to offer long support, if you are happy with your experience, you are more likely to buy same brand phone when it’s time.

Android OEMs screw their users every single year. Every year there’s people who are mad because their quite new very expensive phone is already ”obsolete”. But based on high end Android phone sales numbers, more and more people clearly got enough of it and they don’t buy those expensive Android phones anymore like they used to. In other hand Apple high end phones keep selling very well because users know they will pay for years of support.

It doesn't matter how great iMessage is, unless you live in a bubble where everyone you message also uses an iPhone it is limited in its use. In practice whatever platform I use my primary messaging app will have to be one that's available cross-platform, which rules out both iMessage and RCS (though in both cases it's Apple who prevent them being cross-platform).

The iTunes iphone-to-computer syncing software is still one of the worst UX experiences under the sun. It's blitheringly bad. Also hates you working w/ non-apple-sanctioned files, e.g. your own mp3's or videos. Also try to sync a lot of pics w/ some videos in them --- the thing will crash and you have to reboot the iPhone to continue. This is ages old bug.
They can polish their mobile experience all they want, I will minimize my suffering to syncing just my gf's iphone.
And destroying the best laptop keyboard in the business and making it the worst, and adding an anti-touch-typist "touch bar" at the top -- how does a company even do that? Screw Apple.

The only caveat is Windows 10 Home. Microsoft should really give 10 pro as default on pro devices.

Please when i see coments like "apple is more polished" i ask how please. how is it more polished, mostt of you dont use stock android, and then its more polished. On the new ios 14 update the only thing that i can say is a lil bit diffrent is the widget stack. what else?.
The issue of android is the most popular social apps end up being developed specificaly better for ios than on android.

You apple people never accept the truth its sad, infact i blame must editorial posts that d all the hyping

Guess you've appeared in most Apple posts so we know who the troll is.

GeeSquer4U, 25 Jun 2020Surface go 2, 1 tablets can be considered?Surface pro 7 is the all round tablet that blows every other Android/iOS based tablet out of the water.

Repeating same propaganda about Exynos and Samsung in every thread.

Lenovo, Asus are small companies?
I think we all know who the tr*ll is.

IPad it's no longer the only good tablet on the market.

I doubt anyone would care about widgets at this point in time. They just take up the home screen and hog the battery.

I will switch apple for this great UX

Gsmarena hyping up App Library am I the only ine who doesn't care about it? Apps on my phone are all pilled up messily on my homescreen so I rarely have to go to the app drawer and as far as widgets go I only have a weather and RAM cleaner widget on my screen
And I dont think anyone would be holding off their jump to iOS just because it lacked app drawer

Making your own device inferior.
Besides ZenUi is second only to Oxygen OS.
