    Hi guys,

    I am contemplating a change from the IPhone 6 Plus to the Galaxy s7 edge. I think the phone is awesome after playing with it some at the store. Couple of questions that I have.

    - How does iCloud email work on the s7 edge, I've had android before (S3 I believe) and the email push was terrible, emails wouldn't come in etc.

    - I have iCloud photo sharing with numerous people in my family, is there anyway to continue sharing photos taken with the s7 edge? I know it's Android/IOS but is there some sort of workaround or app? Any solutions from the pros?

    - I am also subscribed to Apple Music with family app, so I know Android has an Apple Music app now, anyone using it? How's it work?

    FYI I also have an iPad Pro I use for school/work, mainly using MS Office apps.

    Thanks! I hope to be picking one up today!

    I my opinion, since you are that integrated into the Apple Eco-system, I wouldn't switch to the Galaxy S7E.

    You will lose all your seamless integration that you have taken for granted.

    I have both devices, AT&T iPhone 6 Plus for work and Galaxy S7E as my personal device.

    Each device has its pluses and minuses.

    Again, in your case, I would not make the switch.

    Welcome to Android Central! Have you considered forwarding your iCloud Mail to your Gmail account, and just using the Gmail app on the S7 edge? https://support.apple.com/kb/ph2642?locale=en_US

    You won't get push email from iCloud but it still works. I use Apple Music and it's OK, but not as robust as on an iPhone.
    You can use Dropbox to auto upload photos to a Mac and sync with the Photos app, but not as seamless as on iOS.
    Overall I am happy with the switch from my iPhone 6splus to the S7E, but if you are that engrained in the iOS ecosystem it may be a difficult switch. I recommend you take advantage of the 14 day return policy to try it out.
