    I have been using iPhones since the 3G and Android since the beginning. Every year I think Android gets a bit closer to moving me permanently to Android. 2 years ago, I though the nexus 5 would take me to android permanently (but the camera and battery life), then this year I fell in love temporarily with the S6, then G4, and even Nexus 6 but then they both had either bloat issues and/or battery issues.

    Recently I got the Nexus 5x and thought for sure I was done with iPhones. I sold my 6s Plus and have been using my 5x exclusively for 1.5 months (which is a record for me pretty much). Everything was great until a friend handed me his 6s Plus to look something up while he drove and instantly I wanted one back. As much as I try to convince myself that Android is where I want to be, I think it's all a fallacy! I really want an iPhone and can't quite put my finger on it but it's just so much better than Android IMO.

    I get overwhelmed with Android just knowing that i CAN tinker more. I know I don't have to but I feel anxious to do so. With iPhones, I can just enjoy them. Plus iMessage rules all. I will probably get another 6s Plus soon and keep my Nexus 5x as a backup so I can have the best of both worlds. I've come to accept that I'll never be able to be exclusively Android. Anyone else the same as me? I love both platforms but I love iOS more. Maybe someday it'll happen but it's still not there.

    Perhaps you should stop wasting the money and get yourself a 6S or wait for a 7. Stock Android and iOS are pretty awesome, however, iOS definitely feels more polished for me.

    I choose iOS because the platform is more polished (as already mentioned) and has a better layout. To me, it also looks more finished (although if I could got back to iOS 6!)

    The few Android devices I've used or handled just left me wondering why the interface was so stupid and bass ackwards. Oh well.

    I choose to jailbreak because there are things Apple won't let me do, but that are possible on Android and achievable with jailbreak.

    I had a S6 edge as a backup but I thought what's the point when I can just sell it and put it in my savings.

    There isn't an OS that's the undisputed best, otherwise the others would be out of business. Personally, I prefer iOS but I'm not much of a tinkerer - if you are, go android.

    Perhaps it's the holidays that bring out the "I Love my iPhone so much I keep buying Androids..."

    Then in a twist of CRUEL Fate, Android leaves them jilted...

    I'll be picking up a sim free 6s plus 64gb in space gray either today or tomorrow. :)

    I can understand how you feel OP, I last had an iPhone when the 5 came out and when Samsung released the S4, I figured I'd try something different. Ive been on Android for 2 years and just had the GS6, but then my cousin got the iPhone 6S+ and loved how smooth and polished it was, not to mention the battery life was phenomonal compared to my GS6. So about a month ago I went out and got an iPhone 6S and loving every minute of it.
