    With android 12 looking more like the IOS.
    It's clear Samsung is making their phones simpler which is great touch wiz was horrible. I currently own a tab s7 plus which which I use for my torrents and and comics and movies a phone with storage that was limited used to be my biggest gripe wis gripe with Apple I now own airpods pro and they are great. So what's really keeping me around with Samsung is loyalty to the brand. I've never had an iPhone and the cameras I cannot lie are starting to become better and even from other iphone 12 pro max are even better then my ultra s21. Would yall consider the jump.

    And not always. Maybe Samsung is going to try to make room for Spen silo. We are at the time the rumors are going to come out. All projections are rumors till Samsung announces the phone.

    Also, I didn't say it was fact. I think the OP is smart enough to see it's a rumor not fact.

    The biggest annoyance is also the screen the s21 ultra curved edges. I hate them and I'm not trying to put the Whitestone dome or any liquid on my phones ever again. I'm honestly now just looking to capture great pictures and videos. I'm not used to the swiping though as I still use the galaxy back and home buttons. So that's going to be something I'd have to get used to.

    Well this is subjective obviously, but samsung cameras never have been the greatest. The pixel actually rates as one of the better cameras.

    I personally liked the curved screen, but again that's subjective.

    I think the iPhone is a good phone, it will get the job done. You have a 14 day return policy, you aren't out much to try it out and see if it meets your needs.

    I've looked into the new iPhone camera more than anything else about it. Even my Note 20 Ultra has better camera hardware than the new iPhone 13 Max Pro.

    I'll admit Apple has the better night mode but most of the argument between whether Samsung or Apple has the better camera simply comes down to how they render their jpegs and that's personal preference. Some prefer Apple colors, some prefer Samsung.

    Personally I won't touch iOS, my personal experience has me convinced it's an unstable buggy OS, but most people never had to deal with providing tech support to Apple products for a job like I have.

    It is entirely possible that it'll have a smaller battery... It's also entirely possible that it won't. It's also entirely possible they've developed an amazing new technology that means a small battery can last for days, probably not though.

    Never assume that people on the internet know the difference between fact and fiction lol.

    Most developers make apps to run smoother on IOS that goes from Instagram to any app that's made.

    Pre ordered the iPhone 13 Pro Max and 13 Pro today. Love my iPhones as usual and get them every year. But I love my Android phones as well and enjoying Android 12 on S21 Ultra. Personally they are all capable and great phones, one won't go wrong in any modern flagship phones. Just preference and choose what you like. If you can't own both, then may be switch once in a while between platforms if it's possible.

    But, in many cases, they hamstring apps that are excellent on Android, but terrible on iOS. One is my favorite keyboard, SwiftKey. There are many settings and features left or of SwiftKey on iOS, and that's a plain fact. This I discovered while interacting with an Apple user over SwiftKey. They literally couldn't stand how deeply they cut features completely out.

    iOS is a the Alpha~Omega to many, and yes, it is engineered to be smooth, they only have to develop for the same "system" over and over and and over. They only play in their sandbox, and users can take it or leave it.

    Android looking more like iOS how? If anything it's the other way around. Every year people talk about going to the iPhone just to find out that it's like the one that came before it. There's honestly not much different from the previous model. They really should've named it an S model as that's all it is a refresh.

    I've seen mention time and time again that this app or that app has more and/or different features on iOS but run better is not something that I've heard mentioned often. I've watched a couple of videos that address the iOS vs Android app differences and they both cited that iOS is iOS no matter what device it is running on, because they are all pretty much the same device, while Android runs on thousands of devices from different MFGRs. One of the videos said that 500 different devices are released each year that run Android. This is why some features are left out of the Android version of apps. It isn't so much that they run better but more that they have different features and/or may be more integrated into the iOS eco system.

    In the meantime, there are tons of videos on YouTube that compare virtually any device against another. You can find OS comparisons for days. The choice is subjective. Am I going to say, yeah jump on that iPhone, no, but I'm also not going to say everyone should get an Android. Everyone should find the device that suits them based on what is important to them.

    On a side note about cameras. I just saw something, cannot remember if it was a video or article, saying that Samsung just announced the development of a 200mp sensor but it wasn't slated to go in any of their devices. Yeah kind of weird, I know. They are supplying another company, I'm not sure if it mentioned who but it may have. Anyway they are rumored to be sticking to the 108mp cam in the S21 for next year's flagship devices. Probably not the foldable ones as we've seen they are selling these on the basis of "it folds" rather than specking them all out. I'm hearing this is also a price thing with them. Putting more expensive sensors in them would drive the price up is what they're saying.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Nothing wrong with iphone , i just upgraded from 11pro to 12 pro, had every iphone since iphone 3 and pretty much every Samsung since note 2 and S3 love both ios and andriod and sometimes its good to mix it up especially if you dont carry multiple devices. Can always change it up in a year or 2 see where you stand.

    Ive pre ordered the 13 pro max as well but will be selling my s21 ultra this week. I plan on getting the pixel 6 pro. The rumoured improvements and android 12 has sold me.

    Think i will give samsung a miss now as i think stock android will better suit my usage. That might change but think it’s time for a change

    Same for me it's time to try ios at least for now Samsung has remained the same and the curved edges aren't something I'm a huge fan of

    One of these days I might try apple again. Samsung is getting more and more like apple when it comes to features. If apple comes out with a folding screen I may look harder, of course after a couple releases to work their kinks out

    I sold my S21U a week ago and I’m waiting for the Google 6 Pro to give a go if the cameras are as amazing as the early non-official reports suggest. But I’m also trading my iPhone 12 Pro Max for the 13 Pro Max as the deal is better than the insane amount Samsung has given in the past. The S21 Ultra is a nice phone but a bit uncertain with photos and I am a pro team member for a grill company and have to keep up on social and I take double the photos on the Samsung to get the results I want.

    Just curious what features are getting more and more like Apple? Asking because I would really like to know. Is it about the removal of the SD card?

    SD card removal, 3.5 jack removal, Spen silo going away, for now anyway. Just seems Samsung is catching on remove things and people upgrade at a cost for memory, sell earbuds as most will just do that over adapters, and now the Spen is a $50 accessory. Stuff like that

    Those things wouldn't be more like Apple especially the jack removal(as Motorola did it first with the Moto Z in 2016) and we all knew the SD card was inevitable. Samsung is the only phone manufacturer with a true stylus so them moving to other devices as an accessory is definitely not being more like Apple(who still doesn't have one available for any phone btw). It's funny that Samsung gets condemned for removing things that were never present on other phones like the iPhone and Pixel which were never the true reason the masses pick galaxy phones. The one thing I am bummed about though is how Samsung is basically letting Apple match them in the base storage arena. For years Samsung was the leader in providing higher base storage on all their flagships now it's that's the norm. Hoping on the S22 that changes and they get back to proving optimal storage especially with the removal of the SD slot.
