Typing this on the XS Max. Not liking that I'm experiencing issues with WiFi, especially given the price. I'm considering a switch to Android for my primary device. I'm fairly familiar with them; have rooted in the past, unlocked with various techniques from XDA etc. I've had Nexus 7 and 9 tablets as well. I use a Shield TV as my main tv component. I use Spotify for music. Have a Windows based server. I do my own photo backups, but also use Google photos. I use iCloud as a cloud hard drive. Don't use iCloud photo library. What I'm thinking about is this... While many Android phones offer great features, there is no one ideal device unfortunately. I love the screen (especially the way it curves over the sides) and general hardware of the Note 9. The 1.5 aperture is a boon for low light situations. However, there are too many reports of Samsungs, including the very similar S9s slowing down over time. People say the curved edges also lead to false touches. The Pixel doesn't seem to have these problems, but the screen sucks to me, and I would really prefer to have a zoom lens. There's a new one coming out, let's see how it is. The latest Sony phone can shoot 4K HDR, and the LG v30 shoots 10-bit log 4k. It also has a quad-dac for excellent audio. Huawei has those high resolution cameras that aren't bad. The Oneplus 6t looks really quite awesome from the leaks. Love the minimal notch, the large OLED screen. According to Lew (Unbox therapy) and others, Oneplus' latest phones seem to not slow down over time. Along with that, we can expect to see the LG V40, which looks to be awesome if the screen is up to snuff, as wella s the Pixel 3. I run a business, and the thing I've enjoyed most about iPhones is the reliability. The software works in a predictable way over the year that I own each model(I always get the newest one when it comes out), and this is super important to me. Odd as this sounds, I love the built in mail app. If a phone were to slow down, and not keep up with my power user multitasking, that wouldn't be acceptable. Afaik Android also doesn't have a simple backup and restore system like iPhone, so it wouldn't be very simple to switch phones or set things up again. At the moment, I don't have time to look for and test custom ROMs and stuff like that. So the question boils down to this... Can I expect to have a fluid, reliable, fast experience with 2018 Android flagships? What kinds of annoyances, niggles or hindrances can I expect?
