Just making a thread to discuss why people would choose Android over iOS when it comes to phones. The reason I am doing this is there seems to be a lot of people on this website with odd and out there ideas to explain why someone will purposely choose the competition. This is for ligitamate reasons such as design user experience, software, availability, affordablility wand other related to that. Reason such as "apple is #$&@" or "Samsung Rules" are not valid reasons. *If you are cannot stand other people's opinions close this thread now* I'll start with myself. I previously owned a iPhone 7 after nearly 7 years on Android. Now I own a Note 8. For me the iOS experience was great but there where several small things that drove me nuts and forced me to change. One of those is the ability to set default apps. I cannot stand Apple maps or safari thry are not for me. I prefer Google maps and Chrome. Example if I recieve a text message with an address if I tap it opens apple maps. If I delete apple maps I am told to download apple maps. I have to copy the address then paste it into Google maps. Absolutely far to much of a hassle for me. Also Siri is awful compared to Google assistant which I use a lot. Other things make me really jelous of the iOS ecosystem. They have by far the best smart watch and I really would love to get an apple watch. But for me it is not worth going to the headache of iOS for. if apple where to change that to allow default apps I may get the 2018 flagship.
