    >Has anyone here gone full circle with being an android power user and switching to iphone?
    Yes. Many such cases I think.
    Lagdroids awful bloat, short support, half assed and annoying etc etc.
    >How was the transition
    Good. Except that there isn't a decent open source local music player app, VLC for iOS sucks. I gave up on that and now listen more to podcasts when out and about, which is more fruitful anyway. But I miss FM radio the most, I like it for random public radio programs and classical music, and when traveling to foreign countries.
    >and would you go back?
    Never. I have fairly simple needs and this shit just fricking works for that, and with the long support I'm getting more value. With the rampant exploits out there lockdown mode is a peace of mind. Anyone on android not on Graphene is already fricked.

            Graphene probably has an edge over iphones. It's very locked down and the guy working on it was involved with OpenBSD malloc, and ported it. The stock apps are all custom and hardened.
            If you don't at least use stock pixels which track AOSP closely you are probably majorly fricked. Samsung are better with updates and such these days but it's riddled spyware bloat through and through; huge attack surface. I don't follow it closely anymore but I see news about vulnerabilities in them pretty regularly.

            Adding:
            My big problem with VLC was that it when I used it, it refused to group by folder structure. It needed album/year etc metadata to group songs together. Overall flimsy and annoying.

            You can also use any cloud service, Google Drive, One Drive etc. You can also transcode FLAC to ALAC and then use the stock music player.

            Doing it this way is suboptimal though. I think anon is asking about the actual music player, not just the ability to play files.

            I mean, if you're going to use another music player, it's w/e how you get the music on the device but with the built-in one, nope, no way around iTunes. But for all its annoyances (and there are more, like it sometimes failing to sync), it's also pretty comfy once you set it up and can send over new music wirelessly.

            I want to avoid using the icloud program on my pc to sync to the music app on my phone. Are you saying that stuff in the files app can be imported into the stock music player? Yes or no, anon.

            100%. I might be an Applegay now but I don't see anything in the world turning me into a stream-cuck.

            The MS store version is actually pretty shit, the older one that doesn't use it has a much more sensible UI and performance … although I have no clue how I found it, since most links push you to the MS store one.

            >100%. I might be an Applegay now but I don't see anything in the world turning me into a stream-cuck.
            I got a deal for 1 dollar a month a long time ago and used apple music for a while because of that. It was fine for that price, otherwise not worth it.

    got an iphone 15 pro max and apple watch to go with it like a week ago
    so I guess I'm "in the ecosystem"

    they're nice. the UI on both leave a lot to be desired imo, like the lack of a unified back button on iOS. macOS just feels janky and slow overall when it comes to multitasking and task switching
    i wish I could use newpipe or something like it. never had much other use for sideloaded apps personally. kiwi browser as my standalone youtube browser seems to work ok tho
    overall I still prefer my linux desktop when I'm home, and would probably be fine with windows too if I had to, but most of the dev work I do tends to assume you're either on linux or mac so I'd rather just use those platforms instead of WSL. plus the macbook battery life makes it a no-brainer for a laptop

    I used to be a massive Android shill
    But then I got a decent PC and it made me realize that I really don't need my phone to do everything my PC can already do. Smart Phones should be made as simple, functional, general purpose tools, and not outright PC replacements. That's why I prefer iPhones nowadays, since when it comes to phones, the end user experience is way more important than the power user experience.

I was all in running custom roms and kernels, to the point that I was running Cyangenmod nightlies. Eventually I got tired of that, and bought an iPhone 5C to try it out, been iPhone ever since. I got tired of needing to find solutions to make my phone work properly, and the iPhone just works. Is the iPhone perfect..no. But overall its better than Android. Ive considered going back the Galaxy S24 is pretty tempting, but I know that as soon as I do...I will last maybe a week and Ill be back on iPhone.

    I used Android for many years, usually Samsung phones. I got irritated with the lack of updates after around 2 years and the fact that they always forced apps like Facebook to be part of the system and you had to root to get rid of it. Yes, I know, not every droid is like Samsung.

    I switched to iPhone in 2020 and the first week was a pain to get through because the two systems do things very differently. Now I definitely wouldn't go back to Android. I just prefer the Apple ecosystem.

    i was the exact opposite. parents got me an iphone when i was in high school. never had a phone before, so i had no experience with android. whole family uses apple, i always got the newest best iphone and we'd trade down. i eventually got frustrated with iOS. it was compressing my images to jpeg without being told to, i was also annoyed with the screen dimming automatically and being unable to block ads in apps.

    i bought a refurbished android off of amazon. it was really fun tinkering with the UI and these days i just can't use the web without a dozen or so firefox extensions to block WEBP and using a user agent switcher. gif wallpapers are nice too.

    my refurbish phone eventually died. had to switch back to my old iphone, and i hated it. i prefer my new $200 A15 over my $1400 iphone. they don't live long enough to justify spending more.

    I have an Android phone (my own) and an iPhone (company phone). And I will never, ever own an iPhone because of one insanely annoying, recurring experience you have with an iPhone. Here's how it goes:
    >open phone app
    >go to favourites or recents
    >call someone
    >conversation over, hang up
    >SIKE! they hung up first and the window closed a millisecond before your finger touched the hang up button and now you've instead pressed a contact
    >but because favourites & recents screen makes pressing a contact just call that contact (whereas in contacts pressing a contact opens the contact's page, they way it is on Android), you're now calling someone you didn't mean to call
    Doesn't happen every time but it's often enough of a nuisance that I don't want to deal with it on my personal phone. No idea how such a terrible UI decision slipped through there.

    There's nothing special about the iPhone and I'm probably going to get another pixel 5 soon bc I broke the screen on this one again and it's my main phone but it's just a decent phone. It has a few exclusive features. I got it bc I thought it was a totally "pure" Android launcher but it's not and when I have to enter my passcode I have to press enter lol

    Yes. I was 100% Android until ~2016. I'd been using android phones since 2010 I think. I loved them, thought iPhone was dumb because "It's so easy so it's for dumb people" and so on and so forth. Then I was given an iPhone for work and I haven't changed back. iPhone is a million times better than Android. I don't need "customization" and all that, none of it matters. I just need to talk, text, email, and browse the web.

    Now I'm at the point I just want to talk and text... I'm on the fence about that Nokia 3210 rerelease. I think it has too many features.

          Yup. Lineage then Calyx, then iPhone.
          >How was the transition
          Fine. Was already used to the Apple ecosystem from previous exposure. No IQfy reader or YouTube client without ads sucked, but I make do with the web interface for IQfy and then block ads on YouTube in the browser. Works all the same for me, and not having a thread watcher/dedicated YT client keeps me from getting too sucked in.
          >would you go back?
          No. Terrible security, terrible cross platform integration, terrible UI.

          I have thought about doing this, but I have the sunk cost fallacy with the fancy iPhone I have. If there was a comprehensive solution where I could still have maps, music streaming, reminders, email, and calendar, I'd do it. Maps maybe with a GARMIN, not sure about music streaming since the nice Walkman's from Sony don't do Apple Music AFAIK, and then the productivity apps would have to be on a smartphone in which case I don't want some dinky dumbphone and would rather just take the iPhone. But then there's also my banking app, budgeting app, etc. Just too much shit to get rid of, and I have the bare minimum installed on my phone. I can't imagine trying to get GroupMe set up on a "hacker phone".

          Jesus fricking Christ do you guys not realize how fricking useless and extremely idiotic this topic is. It's just a fricking phone you inept monkey. If you can't change your phone at whim you should ask for government support for the mentally challenged.

          Dude that's like half of IQfy is tool optimization. Mac, Windows, or Linux? Vim or Emacs? It's just timekiller shit and optimizing for productivity that never comes. Truthfully you should be able to, but you should also realize Android sux. MKBHD switching between phones for videos always gives me a bit of whiplash for how he carelessly moves all of his shit over, but if you aren't obsessed over this type of stuff that's how it would be for most people.

            I used to rely on my phone for reminders, I'll get to that in a bit
            >email
            Use a laptop
            >Calendar
            Calendar and reminders go hand in hand. I just bought a weekly planner for my calendar and keep it with me. I just check it about 4 times a day for any other reminders. All written by hand, no screen. No battery. I prefer it over the digital shit.

            Bank on laptop, budget with a laptop excel sheet, or by hand as I do.

            Stop having friends. Kek.

            Yeah this is usually the way IQfyentoomen get away with it. Finally recovering from it luckily. You would not believe how much anxiety I had around making a Google account or downloading WhatsApp, until I did it, and realized it just doesn't fricking matter. Looking forward to when I go Will Hunting from IQfy and never come back. I can see it happening within five years if things keep going well.

            point of a smartphone is to miss carrying a gorillion other things with you. there isn't an excuse for phone and portable music, maps, email, decent camera to be separate. there really isn't. exercise self control about not installing social media apps or scrolling IQfy without cutting limbs off if that's an issue
            definitely agree about banking and budgeting though. don't see why you need that shit with you. however, there is a 2 factor authentication app i need for banking on my pc. so that's that

            moreover, if you can plan out your day to skip or to use very little internet outside of places you know you have wifi you can get extremely cheap phone plans. this naturally cuts out distractions, i download everything every morning before i leave. i unironically pay 10-15 dollars A YEAR for my phone plan.
            iOS (and i'm sure android too) allows you to control which apps have access to mobile network

            I like the separate devices due to the numerous distractions. I don't often carry anything with me outside my car except my planner, which fits in my back pocket, and my phone.I do have to use 2FA for work though, but a lot of those can be set up to call your phone or text.

            I was mostly joking, I have friends and we just text each other and not use apps to chat.

            Check out Signulous, ive sideloaded iChan pro and uYouEnhanced, objectively worse solution than sideloading on android but it works.

            although google is on the war path and the modded YT breaks every couple of months

    wouldn't the full circle be coming back to Android eventually? I'm seriously considering just getting a dumb phone

    I had an iPhone. I read some meme article that android was better so I got a pixel. The moment I texted girls from tinder they all responded with “ew why are you a green texter” and I almost never got laid. After being tired of being associated with autism and cargo shorts I got rid of it, got another iPhone, and then I had a ton of sex and eventually got married.

    I got an iPhone 13 mini a couple years ago after my BlackBerry keyone no longer functioned because it was literally the only phone available in a non-moronic size. The phone is mostly fine but the way the file system works, how something as simple as saving a file is obfuscated to be under the "share" menu where you "share" it to your files app (really everything about "share" pisses me off), and the fact that I had to buy an app so that clicking on links could open in an app instead of browser piss me off to no end.
    There's just a bunch of little things that almost seem intentionally confusing and difficult for someone who is not a total tech illiterate based on expectations of how these things should function. I will not be buying another iPhone once this one dies.
