I have been using an iPhone since 3GS and currently have an iPhone seven that I bought when it first launched. In-between the iPhones I used Google Nexus 1 and OnePlus 3. Even though I primarily use Apple devices (MacBook, iPad, Apple TV, AirPods), I am considering trying Android again. The main reasons are: - 90% of the apps I use are available on both platforms. - There are some good user features on Android that as I power user I can benefit from. - The price for the new iPhoneX on thereon forward is just too much even for a big Apple enthusiast like myself. Two years ago I tried OnePlus 3 and eventually returned to an iPhone. Here is the summary of why this happened: https://forums.macrumors.com/thread...bout-one-month-of-android-experience.1992078/ With the upcoming release of OnePlus 6, I am considering giving Android and OnePlus another try. Specific Questions: Privacy From what I have read, OnePlus removed user experience tracking and made it an opt-in option. Does anyone have more insight into this? I understand that my data is not that important and that no one really cares about it other than advertisement agencies who want to sell more stuff. However, there is just an uncomfortable feeling of working with Google rather than Apple. Any comments on this matter? Photos I will have to switch to Google Photos to replace Apple Photos or use something like Plex for local storage. Plex is an option but not the most appealing one. What concerns me about Google Photos is that there is no desktop app and they will have to be managed and organized and edited online. for those of you who have used Google Photos, what is the experience like compared to Apple Photos. Then there is the question of privacy and photos. All of my photos are family photos but nevertheless, how do you feel about Google vs Apple storing all of your photos? Notes With an iPhone, I have access to Bear Notes and Devonthink for notes. I need a desktop app. With Google, my main options are Evernote (expensive subscription) or Simplenote (not as good as Bear app). Did I miss anything? Messages I understand that I will simply have to suck it up and let go of iMessage. How is the android messenger for iOS nowadays? I hear that Google is planning to fix messaging in 2018 by releasing something similar to iMessage.
