Apologies at the outset for the long and meandering post With Apple's price increases, I've been trying to decide what to do. I have a 6s, and my wife has the 4S that I bought when they were released in 2011. We obviously don't regularly buy the latest and greatest! We're both frugal, and while I love technology and drool over the latest and greatest, she couldn't care less. I don't use my phone a lot because I'm usually using my 2012 rMBP or 10.5 iPad Pro. However, my aging eyes would enjoy a plus-sized iPhone, and I could give my wife the 6s, even though she says she's fine with the little 4S. I was looking forward to the release of what we know as the iPhone X, but the price (not to mention the notch) put a wet blanket on that. I've considered the iPhone 8 Plus, but 64GB is tight and 256GB is serious overkill. However, to buy an 8 Plus with enough storage for my usage will put the total cost, including tax, at over $1000. That's approaching financial insanity for my usage. And so I'm considering buying an Android, perhaps a mid-range model with at least a 5.5" screen. My basic pause is the integration I enjoy with my Apple devices, not to mention the security of OS updates. I think I can go to Google calendar to provide the integration in that area, but I don't know what to do with music. I enjoy the integration that iTunes provides across my devices. I wonder how well comparably-priced Android models stack up against an iPhone 6s Plus or 7 Plus in practical, day-to-day usage. A 128GB 6s Plus would be $649 plus tax, and a 128GB 7 Plus is $769 plus tax. My attraction to Android is motivated by price. If I can get a better Android for the price of a 6s Plus or 7 Plus or even a comparable Android (in day-to-day usage, thinking primarily about speed and camera) for less, then I may go that route. Otherwise, I could spend the extra $100 or so, get maybe an iPhone 7 Plus, and continue using my devices as I have. I'm leaning towards the 6s Plus or 7 Plus, but I'm very open to Android. Any thoughts from those who've used both platforms are welcomed. Thanks.
