I just ordered two ATT Note 8’s for my husband and me. Very excited to try them out but apprehensive about leaving our iPhones behind as we have used iPhones since 2010 when we switched from Blackberry to iPhone 4. We use iPads, MacBooks, and Apple TV as well as Apple routers in our house so I’m a bit worried about stepping outside the ecosystem but open to learning new things. I had a Nexus 7 several years ago to play with so I’m already somewhat familiar with Android (more worried about the switch for my husband). We’re going to give it our best shot for 14 days, perhaps the year, as we signed up on ATT Next 12-month and could always switch back to Apple next year if they offer something compelling or we just miss iOS on our phones. What I’d love to get from you guys and girls is some good advice on preparing for the switch (our phones should arrive Wednesday) and how to best protect/transfer from iPhone to Android and how best to make our Note 8’s play well with our Apple devices. Specific concerns: Synching photos, messages, bookmarks Messaging recommendations Browser recommendations I’ve read before (as I’ve been thinking about doing this for the past two years and would have tried Note 7 last year but for the exploding battery) that I should try to transfer most services over to Google apps for continuity before the jump. Thanks for any and all advice/suggestions. I have enjoyed and appreciated all the info I have gleaned from following your discussions on this forum.
