Once you have broken an iPhone's screen and have to pay that by yourself, you will return to android phones.

My wife switched to Mi 10 ultra after the iPhone.
She said why can't iOS be more like miui... That's the power of Android!!!

I am impressed by iphone smartphones but it lacks KNOX SECURITY.. dont reply that traditional answer over eras (iphone is full security), I mean KNOX makes another surface for storing data, so ISP could not enter your knox folder..

One thing the reviewer didn't mention, is that on iOS apps are just better than they are on Android - and that includes Google's apps. That's the main reason I've moved to iOS from android, apps just work.

HomeKit is fantastic compared to SmartThings, and is controlled locally by my AppleTV. Instant switching of smartplugs etc, compared to a 5+ sec delay at times when using their own apps.

I got a 13 Pro Max as well, came from a S21+. S21+ just about made it through a day, even with a Galaxy Watch 4 doing some of the work. With the 13PM/Watch Series 7 I'm seeing 2.5 days easily from the phone, and a busy day with the Watch has it about 20% battery by midnight (I do 18 hour days). Less than 20 mins on the charger has it up to 50/60% for sleep tracking, and it'll go back to 100% on the charger in the morning while I shower etc.

Meahwhile Android copying all the negative things from Apple, such as 3.5mm jack removal, limiting user freedom, making modding/rooting very difficult, less functional UI etc. This makes Android worse than it was.

As a result, you can see who improved and who deteriorated. If fanboy like Android consumers keep denying the facts, Android will worsen even further. Rather, we need to accept the facts and pressure the OEMs and Google to stop their agenda

-dropping headphone jack
-limiting user freedom restricting rooting/modding in the name of "security"
-reducing overall functionalities for looks

But not the good, such as
-fastest chipset and storage
-things fuctioning more reliably and consistently

Honestly there was a time I would use an iOS phone, but not anymore. I just don't love it as before... As Android provides me with a lot of varieties.That alone is enough reason to make me prefer it.

When you say compact size, Please also insist on lighter weight , i feel 170gm is optimal weight to hold

You can still swipe only from the left side, and some apps require you to close x to go back.

It has a very inconvenient UI.
