Over the past few years I have considered going Android a couple of times but have resisted due to the problems of reliably syncing iCal and Contacts to an Android phone over USB, no cloud storage wanted. However, now Apple and Mavericks together have broken the straightforward iTunes syncing of this data to the iPhone, (as well as iOS7 breaking the chapter navigation for Audiobooks), it seems a good time to reconsider getting the large screen phone I'd love. My main questions are listed below and I would appreciate any information people can give me before I take the plunge. Is any reliable two way syncing now available over USB from Android (specifically LG G2) to iMac - as I said before, no iCloud or any other cloud syncing options please. Is there an email function like iOS Mail? I have about 10 email addresses, and need to access them all centrally on my phone via POP (don't want to use IMAP). Some email addresses from my websites, others are Yahoo - and even a Gmail one, but I don't use this one anyway. Is there an app that plays ALAC files without converting? Is there an app that plays m4b audiobooks (without DRM) and keeps full chapter navigation (i.e. can see the chapters and navigate between them, not just go forward or backwards sequentially). Backing up the phone to iMac over USB - what options are there? When browsing in Safari I double tap the screen and the text I am reading expands to fill the screen making it easier to read. Does the stock browser on Android do this, or is there another browser I could use that does? For anyone with the LG G2 - is the speakerphone any good? I use it all the time on my iP5 instead of holding the phone to my ear so for me, it's very important the speaker is good. Siri substitute - I only use the basics while driving such as "play playlist/album/artist", "send text message to XXX", "call XXX", "pause music" - is there an equivalent to use on the LG G2? I think that's about it for now, my thanks and appreciation in advance to people who reply.
