    How do you feel about spending Apple prices on an Android phone with less features than say a Note 7 (which is every so slightly cheaper but more feature rich)? This is a genuine question...I am curious because in Android circles premium prices have been seen as anti-Android and anti-Google, yet here we are, Google launches their first phones and they are the exact same price as iPhone. I'm seriously conflicted and have difficulty justifying the price point, and this is coming from somebody who owns an iPhone 6s Plus 64GB and a Note 7, and who is considering picking up the iPhone 7 Plus instead of my 6s Plus.

    The bonus is of course updates and security patches...but beyond that...
    Doesn't bother me a bit. It is a nice phone from Google and I will be good. The Note 7 wasn't bad .. I loved it actually. I only returned it due to the recall fiasco. I still prefer Android to Apple so that automatically rules out iPhones. The Note 7 does have some extra features like S-Pen and whatnot but that doesn't instantly make it worth it to me as I have had many phones without.

    I got the iPhone 7 plus during the recall but in matte black. The phone is nice and it operates smoothly. However because the os is locked down, you can forget about customization. I plan on getting a note 7 again because the workflow for me is so much better and apple has nothing that even comes close to s- note.

    If you're truly a tech guy you'll get both. lol. All kidding aside, I carry around a Note 7 (replacement should be arriving tomorrow) and a iPhone. It's dumb and a waste of money but I enjoy both ecosystems to the point where I can't do without either. Both phones are no where near perfect but having both of them compensates for each others faults. Yolo...

    LOL, I like to joke about it as well and tease people about being careful with my Note when they handle it because it could blow up in their hands at any moment.

    During the N7 battery fiasco, I placed an order for a Jet Black Iphone 7 plus at my local target assuming I would never get one. Well, as luck would have it, they have one for me today. My replacement N7 return policy expires tomorrow and I'm a bit torn on what to do. I am definitely enjoying my N7. Battery is solid, lag and stutter are minimal compared to my original version. I invested in a wireless charger and Gear VR (which I have yet to fully explore). I'll lose on reselling those plus my $35 restock fee.

    I'm a gadget guy so I will probably keep the phone for a bout a year. Like many, all of my friends and family use an iphone so there is some upside to imessage, iPhoto etc. Also, that sweet jet black is calling my name scratches or not.

    Did anyone switch over during the exchange period? If so, how's the experience been? Would you make the change now if given the chance?
    Not an Apple girl, soooo, no.

    Flash support
    The iPhone has this also just like Android phones so. You just need a browser that supports it.

    Sure many other things can be possible once jailbroken but once the phone is jailbroken, there are many more benefits over Android such as:

    The ability to install Facebook++, Instagram++, NoPromosTwitter and UnderFace.

    FaceBook++ allows you to download any FB video and change a lot of things in the FB app. Instagram++ allows you to download any photo or video posted just by double tapping the pic or video and/or tapping the download button.

    NoPromosTwitter gets rid of all the sponsored garbage and the while you were away junk so all you see are tweets in the official Twitter app.

    Also, you really do't need iTunes much these days.

    Undertake allows you to use FaceBook without it showing you are actually online. When you use the website, it always show in minutes when you were last on. Underface keeps you offline even after you post something.

    Anyways, because of the above, I find it hard to not use both, iPhones and Android. There are reasons I enjoy using both. You can so some of the above on Android with the help of other apps.

    None of the Jailbreak mods matter right now since there is no JB for the iOS version that the iPhone 7 is running at the moment. I don't have a 7, just a 6S, 6S+ and a 6, all are jailbroken. No one can guarantee if there will be a JB for iOS 10.
