    Well David, some people just aren't College material. 8th grade is comfortable to them and they decide to stay there for a few years. You will know when you are ready for the Ivy league and Android will still be here.

    I switched to android. I ******* hate it.

    I have been an iPhone user since day one. Yup, that ****ty metal, heavy, 2g device. I've never used another phone (as my everyday) since than. Sure, I've played with phones and used some for weeks at a time (I used to work at AT&T), but the iPhone was always my go to.

    Recently, the S4 and the ONE came out. The specs, and hype, the marketing.... really intrigued me. I said, "You know what? **** it. I'll get an android. These phones are top notch, and they have more features than I know what to do with, I want to switch". For the past 2 years, I've been complaining that Apple is.... BORING.... LACKING INNOVATION.... EXCLUDING SIMPLE FEATURES.... ETC. Trust me, I am NOT a Apple fanboy. I complain PLENTY about how the iPhone should have specific features (as simple as A SCREEN BRIGHTNESS CHANGER WITHOUT HAVING TO GO INTO THE SETTINGS). Trust me, I know how it is guys... Finally, I made the switch.

    I bought this S4. From AT&T. Man, it's a sexy phone. Sleek. Big display. GORGEOUS display. Removable battery, added storage, quad core, the list goes on. This phone on paper, is unbelievable. But that's where it stops.

    Immediately beginning to use this phone (as my everyday) I release how.... laggy it is.... how complex it is.... how it has features that are simply ******* STUPID. I'm moving around this QUAD CORE device with 2GB of ram and noticing just suttle lag all over the place. In the menu, in apps, etc. I'm realizing that the fact that my finger DOESNT NEED TO TOUCH THE DISPLAY FOR IT TO STILL TRIGGER I TOUCHED IT, annoys the hell out of me. I realize all this stupid bloatware from the manufacturer / att (yes i know about rooting, and I did that later).

    I miss my iPhone.

    Moving around android just annoys me. Its too detailed. There are WAY too many options. The flexibilty and the customization options are INSANELY overdone. The phone is powerful. The phone is ultimately designed to make it how YOU want it, but it goes too far. I miss my iPhone.

    I miss the simplicity. I miss the smoothness. I miss the fact that everything, just, worked. I dont know. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm close minded. But Android overall, seems to be just trying to hard to stand out.

    All I want in a phone... is a phone... that just works. Smoothly. Take out all this bull**** that is added in these days... take out all the features that obviously NO ONE will use, and focus on the usability/reliability of the device. Focus on what the user ULTIMATELY will be using. Take out the bull****. Make it straight forward. Why do these manufacturers push so far to 'customize' their devices claiming it gives the 'ultimate experience'? No it doesn't... it bloats the phone and makes it overwhelming.

    Ok, I'm dont ranting. I'm curious to hear what you guys have to say. Any of you iPhone divorces? Would love to understand what you think about these new phones. I'm willing to give it a shot, but I'm unsure....

    I have been an iPhone user since its inception. I just switched to Android 3 days ago when I bought the Galaxy S4. I can't say I have had any of these issues. Granted it is taking some time to get used too because its different, but so far I have enjoyed it. I will admit, I actually hate the weight of this thing. I wish it were a tad heavier. For now though, I think I am going to push on through and hang on to this one.

    It would be interesting to see how the OP experience would be on a Nexus with stock Android. Touchwiz is the most oem tweaked customization of Android and I'd agree it's starting to go too far.

    I didn't say they would have trouble *finding* them. I said they wouldn't want to *need* to find them. That's what I thought the issue was as well - just wanting to use the phone and not have to think about adding or changing anything more. TouchWiz sounds like it might not be the best though. Maybe something in between?

    This phone is too sophisticated for you, go back to the iPhone with your geritol friends, for you to come here and trash this phone, you should be banned, call tim cook, he will be out of a job this time next year, he will bring down apple with his dumb *** decisions. Apple is a 7 yr old phone with a 7 yr old technology, you obviously are a person who hates change, I have a Motorola Razor if you want it, enjoy your iPhone.

    Why is it some people feel their manhood is threatened if somebody doesn't like their operating system as much as they do?

    p.s. If you think newer operating systems and change are the best, how come you're not switching to the new Blackberry?

    I've got a HTC One and I don't have any "lag" (at least by my definition). So, I don't understand how a new S4 could be so noticeably laggy. Is this lag seen when moving around the OS, or is it with your browser or some other network related activity? I'm wondering if the lag is due to your data connection?

    In the end, if you're happier with an iPhone then go for it. IPhones are good smartphones, especially if you like the Apple ecosystem.

    Turn off some or all of those features or root and install aosp on it. Or return it. My step son sees all the other Android phones in our home and still stays on iOS. It boggles my mind sometimes but there's gotta be some reason why he prefers it other than kids his age assume iphone is the best.

    I was an iPhone user to and just recently bought the HTC One, love it! Like the other posters in this thread with the HTC One, I don't experience any lag either. Better screen (for me), definitely not boring like iOS is. Give it a few weeks, it might grow on you.

    Folks (you know who you are), there's no need to insult anyone. There's a reason why there are multiple choices available to us. No one approach to smartphones is going to be right for everyone. If the iPhone is a better choice for the OP, whatever the reasons, that's his choice. The OP didn't criticize anyone here for preferring Android; he just gave us reasons he didn't like it. Some responders have tried to offer legitimate support, which is what this forum is supposed to be about. Criticizing or making fun of the OP accomplishes nothing.


    To the OP: Switching to a different OS, whether it be Android, Windows, BB, or anything else, is going to entail a learning curve. If you don't want to put in the effort to learn a new platform, then sticking with iOS is definitely your best bet. If you are willing to make the effort to learn a new approach, and accept that Android doesn't, and never will work like iOS, then I think the platform has a lot to offer. In many ways I think it's better than iOS, but there are certainly some things iOS does better. iOS is, indeed, much simpler, but the trade-off is that it's much less flexible.

    Choose the device that works best for you, and enjoy it. If your choice is the iPhone, then hang out here: iMore.com | The #1 Site for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV owners . If you really want to give Android a try, there are lots of people here who are willing to help with any questions you might have. But if you just want to complain about what you don't like, you'll just be wasting everyone's time.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Buddy, I know how you feel. I'm in exactly the same shoes. I upgraded from an iPhone 4S to the Galaxy S4 and after giving it about two weeks to make sure I'm giving it a fair chance, I still.... dislike it. Mainly for the horrible camera(compared to the iPhone), poor in-call sound, constant lag, and ugly interface. Still, after extensive testing, its a tossup!

    iPhone has a better interface, but Samsung has a much better screen, and buttons for going back and options button.
    Samsung has bad in-call quality, but Samsung compensates for it with a good speakerphone (which is not any worse on the iPhone though)
    iPhone has much better colors during daylight shooting, but Samsung decimates the iPhone during night shots. (despite some reviewers saying otherwise, my real life shots clearly show a huge advantage the Samsung has over the iPhone) Take some night shots and you'll see what I am talking about. I was absolutely shocked!

    First few days of use, I was gonna call AT&T and quickly exchange this for an iPhone 5. Now I am not so sure anymore... Very, very hard decision.

    I switched recently from a life of iPhones to the HTC One. It was a little scary at first especially since my wife and I share our location and use iMessage to communicate. Since she is very happy and comfortable with her iPhone 5 I wanted more customization and a new challenge for myself. I like that I can determine what should happen if something is clicked. Open the stock browser or Chrome - my choice. Sadly my home screens look exactly like the two screens on my iPhone did. But there is just so much more to explore and that's what gets me excited about this new phone and OS. Also I use a software to connect to my corporate email system and the Android version runs laps around the iOS version. Keep trying and enjoy the ride.

    Default Re: Hi. I'm David. I switched to android, and wish I never did.

    Keep it a while and give it a chance. I had iPhone for years and went to the galaxy s3 this fall and just upgraded to the s4. I will admit I got the iPhone 5 but was intrigued by android. I had the first one years ago and didn't care for it but I figured it had to be better after all this time. I bought the galaxy and used it on wifi only at home like a mini tablet but kept using my iPhone fro my actual phone. After a couple weeks I found myself thinking the iPhone was way too small and kept trying to use a back key. I finally bit the bullet and stuck a sim card in my android. I am happy I switched and at first really missed some of the features of iPhone but I just don't anymore. There are plenty of apps that you can install to help you in your transition. SwiftKey keyboard has the autocorrect osest to iPhone, glow fly has the iPhone type notifications for texts but a step up because you can reply right from your home screen. I also enjoy having a led light for notifications as well. Just keep it for a bit and play with it. Do a Google search on top android apps and play around. Good luck but ultimately in the end go for what works best for you.

    Honestly I want to hear from a user who switched from iPhone and explain their process.
    I will try to give my two cents on this topic. Are Samsung's features gimmicky....yes. Can you turn them off? Most likely (don't have an S4, sorry) as most of the features could be disabled on my S3. The lag....where are you seeing it? Like another post asked is it a web page? or is it just exploring the phone itself? If the latter, that is probably TouchWiz (Samsung's User Interface) which I admit isn't so wonderful. I prefer Nova Launcher available from Play. If the former, Android multitasks, so some of it is loading the webpage, some is paying attention to your input.

    You showed severe dislike for the hover feature. I am reasonably certain this can be turned off, try Settings>Display (guessing here)

    Apps....the last I knew, there were (and may be still) a majority of developers who choose to focus more time/money/programming on iOS apps. I even had some games that I fully believe that using the iOS version gave an advantage over Android in PVP situations.

    As for smoothness of the OS, I read the link posted explaining why, and it is rather interesting. But I am digressing.

    It is a new OS, and a learning curve should be expected. I went from a Galaxy S2 to an S3, and still had a learning curve. The responsiveness to my touches even seemed different.

    In the end it really comes down to a few key points; First, iOS isn't for everyone, nor is Android. Second, how much time do you wish to invest learning a new OS? Third, only you can say (Insert OS here) is the best for me.

    The last thing I can think of is to say thank you for having an open mind to the point of trying. I know many iPhone users who won't even look at my device because it is not Apple.

    I am having the same quandry. i was a NOKIA guy , then right to blackberry. now am considering the S4, but have fooled around with some Android phones and there is nothing intuitive about them , like a Berry. the learning curve is the part that is keeping me from pulling the trigger. have tried friends Iphones and it is smooth as stated , apps are plentiful, but boring at the same time. hard to explain. I do wish the S4 was a little less complicated. i have seen people struggle with their Androids. but, I guess when you finally get it is where you get the payoff!

    You are right to criticize Android it is overwhelming for newcomers and Samsung with the S4 has amplified that horribly. If you can try a Nexus and you will find that it for the most part just works and that it has no crap crapping it up and is plenty fast. It may even feel enough like an iPhone to help you adjust. You can try going back to your iPhone but I think you'll just end up back being frustrated. I started out on Android in 2010 and bought a carrier branded phone I hated it but I also hated going back to a dumb phone so I toughed it out ******** about the next Android I got as well until I finally went Nexus with the Galaxy Nexus last spring. It had its problems but I was so much happier with my overall experience. I have to fuss with my friends and family's Android devices and they run some great phones and terrible. You work for ATT you have access to some really nice phones even though they tend to **** on what they get. Hell while you are out trying new things try Windows Phone it is simple it is colorful it is easy to use. The app selection maybe smaller but it is an entirely new platform for you to explore hell you can even go for Blackberry's Z10.
    If it helps just because you can do a lot doesn't mean you have to. Keep poking at it and eventually you'll be comfortable with something. I hope you find your phone happiness somewhere.
