    I am tempted to try out an Android phone--screen envy. I feel if I had a larger screen on my iPhone, I wouldn't feel the need for an iPad quite so often.

    How do you sync all of your typical iPhone data(music, movies, calendar, etc.) using a Mac?

    What do you miss the most after leaving the iPhone?

    I haven't left iPhone yet and I will always need one for development but

    That being said, if the next iPhone cycle doesn't include one with a bigger screen 4.8 inches or bigger, I will probably be switching to the Note3 or whatever is out at the time.

    Depends on the vendor as some of them have software to sync your devices. Standard Android allows you drag and drop to the internal storage.

    The only tiny thing I miss about the iPhone is the notifications for all apps in the lockscreen, other than that I miss nothing.

    the OC
    for music i use google play music. it took me a couple days to upload all my files to their servers, and i stream the music from the cloud to the device. it's an ok solution, but i'm not a big fan of the music playback interface.

    for calendar, i use smoothsync for cloud calendar. two-way sync for icloud calendar events; it was easier than transitioning all my calendars to google calendar.

    and for contacts, i use whatever address book from gmail.
