I have been an Android fanboy for at least 4 years but I got fed up with the lack of updates from Samsung and the release of so many models over a short period of time. I also got tired of hacking my phone because it ultimately took away too much of my life and I was never satisfied. So I decided that I wanted a phone that just works. Well the problem is that it really does not work as reliably as my previous Android phone (the Note 2) and not as reliably as many people in media makes it out to be. Issue 1: I lose sound after a few days. There is nothing I can do but reboot the phone. It happened this morning in the NBC news app, 2 times in the Apple music app and 1 time on youtube. It happens immediately after playing sound. When I need sound again thats when the issue pops up. Issue 2: Bluetooth magically turns on after turning it off. Issue 3: I have unexplained crashes to the desktop when using Safari or Google chrome. Issue 4: Lag. Sometimes theres a small amount of lag on the keyboard. Not every time but its very random. I thought every Apple device (including an iPhone 5s) was supposed to run circles around the competition. Its not as bad as my other Android devices but the iPhone still has it. Issue 5: Yesterday when I was in the bathroom at work my wife tried to do a facetime session. So of course I ignored the call but she called again using traditional voice. So I rejected the call but when I went back to my internet browsing the phone became so unresponsive I had to reboot it. At the time I was praising how Apple was going to make a huge comeback next year. This was when I felt really bad about my purchase. Issue 6: My level is off (-2 max) but its not really a big deal. Everything works fine so Im just going to wait. Issue 7: I like the Android store much better. The review system for apps is behind Googles. It shows reviews for the most recent update and not the lifelong rating. Its as if people are reviewing the update and not the entire app. That really does not help me if Im new to iOS. And its very difficult trying to find apps you want. Issue 8: There should be a close all button when viewing all the running apps. I count 52 apps and even a reboot (after my sound went away) did not clear them. Im not going to search through 50 apps when its just quicker to re-launch the apps. I bet this is stealing tons of memory. I can go on but this reminds me of all the growing pains Android had in the early years. Now it feels like Im going through it all over again. Im pretty much stuck with my purchase and I hope Apple fixes these issues with iOS 7. I dont want to give up on Apple just yet but so far its not a pain free start. Plus my wife would kill me if I walk into the house with a Note 3 and I don't want to play the wait and see game with updates.
