    It's just a bubble imo, at least they can still message you.
    Ha. You never heard of blue bubble snobs?

    There is a lot of that going around in iPhone circles.

    Since the Pixels were released I bounced back and forth between them and iPhones. I was using a Pixel 2XL but the display was just not good enough even though the rest of the phone was fantastic. Still used it! I bought an iPhone XS Max 3 weeks ago and returned it after 4 days. It just was too expensive for the niggles I had with it. Given the boast of working towards software stability it still had a lot. The display was great but I distinctly didn't like FaceID. Unlock and then swipe. Generally I just didn't like that I had to look at the phone. I missed having the ability to unlock my phone while I was pulling it out of my pocket. Also, given the cost I thought the XR camera was actually better than the XS Max, but then the Pixel 2XL was better than both. It was also the simple things: put the Pixel on the Pixel Stand and I've got a great alarm clock. iOS needs more functionality. I feel like it's the phone for social interaction in many ways, while the Pixel is for getting stuff done. That plus Google had the Black Friday sale which was spectacular.

    Varies from person to person. For someone who may send video a lot that bubble color means a world of a difference.

    My transition from iOS has been very pain free
    That's a lot of money saved for sure. I didn't expect a thread like this to open. Isn't going from iPhone to Android hard because of iMessage?

    I kinda share this same sentiment. At least, that's how I feel about both systems.

    I’m hoping for the same thing. Been on iOS for about 3 years now (with some Android devices sprinkled in there).

    I’m bad. For some reason I can’t get out of iOS but I have that Android itch. The price of new Apple devices has really turned me off. It’s a joke what they charge for barely any upgrades.

    I was a pretty big iPhone loyalist too and the new ones just aren't that big of a change !

    I sold my 512GB iPhone XS Max a few weeks ago and picked up a 128GB Pixel 3 XL and haven't regretted it at all. I got a free Pixel Stand out of it.

    I was never engrossed in the ecosystem except for iMessage. The only annoying thing is one of my friends carriers doesn't support group messaging so he can't group message, however with everyone else group message with Android for all my imessage friends works great.

    It'll all come down to how tied you're to their ecosystem. I'll be honest I was terrified but a month later now and I have zero regrets.

    Because when you consider Apple is going you 2013 tech at a 2018 price or the fact that you're getting sub 1080p display on a 2018 phone for that price there is a lot to be negative about.
    I would hardly call an XR a 2013 tech, like idk the first 7nm cpu. Also, i for am glad that XR has an LCD screen for those of us who are not sold on amoled after all these years with burn in, color shift etc.

    That’s exactly how I am. I use iMessage but nothing else Apple. I use Google Hokes through my house. I have Rokus for all of our streaming needs. And my wife uses an S9. Most of my other family uses Apple, so the iMessage switch may pose a small issue.

    Was the transition from iPhone to Pixel asy? I've heard some complain that they should have stayed with Apple.

    You are correct. Sending videos on ANY Android is terrible, and Apple has it down pat.

    It's not just video. When you send someone a picture through iMessage, it is not compressed as it is with Android.

    Well that is mainly due to carriers. Carriers are the ones compressing it since the Android phone is sending it through them via the MMS protocol.. but yes Android can't do the HQ stuff because they didn't implement something like iMessage to bypass the carriers.
