I am using an iPhone new 5s until October, I have been using it for two weeks. In October I will either buy and iPhone 7 or I will buy a nexus 2016 (Google is the only company worst then apple at numbering apple.) My draw to the iPhone 5s was i needed something cheap (buying off contract for and MVNO) something that did not have bloatware, had reasonably fast updates I previously used an HTC M8 with CM13 that had all of these criteria. (I seriously don't care about cameras, I like to jokingly say i had no idea my m8 had cameras.) My first impression of the iOS is it is smooth and fast. For a device going on its third birthday this thing has no major slowdowns. Their are some things I don't like about the software but that comes in the territory of switching from one platform to another after 6yrs. I recognize that iOS and Android are not just different skins but they are different OSs with different ways to navigate them. For me to go into iOS thinking it is just apples version of android would be disingenuous of me and guarantees I have a horrible user experience. (Same applies going iOS to android.) The phone is not bad in any way. I have no major gripes about the phone that caused me to run back for a refund. (There are minor gripes on my fault of adaptation.) Touch id is amazing. It is fast and I have quickly incorporated it into my day to day life. I know my next phone will require a fast fingerprint reader in the future. I love how plugin in the phone to my car stereo (no android auto or carplay) allows me to control my phone from my cars head unit. Something I can't stand my only real problem has little to do with iOS so much as apple. I subscribe to google play music and Audible. I do not ever use apple's music app. However when I plug it into my car California by U2 starts to play. Not sure whats going on but its extremely annoying. Otherwise after 8 months I am going to have an extremely hard decision choosing in between the next nexus or the iPhone 7. So far I rather enjoy my iPhone its small but needed a phone on a budget and I don't want a giant piece of crap phone. I write this as a fanboy of technology not one of any particular company. Many make too much good stuff for me to wall myself into one company and miss out. Even if I am with iPhone for 8 months I am not going to have any regrets about this experience.
