    Jerry you continue to affirm why I listen to you on podcasts and read your post. Thanks for the great information. I switched to an iPhone to see what it was like, and did enjoy it. But listening to your reviews, and reading your articles brought me back to android. Thanks! Keep up the great work!

    I went to the 6plus/6s plus for a test drive as well, but am currently using the s7 edge as my daily driver.

    Short and sweet, its probably my favorite phone. Screen is amazing, camera is great, expandable memory, size feels great in hand, and the best battery life out of any android phone I've used.

    You know what you're getting into with apple vs android. They both have their pros and cons, but I believe the s7 edge is one of the best android experiences thus far.

    I remember the first time I used noise cancelling headphones how blown away I was hearings parts of songs I had never heard before even though I had listened to the songs for years.

    I find the S7 speakers for myself to be loud. For example I was just playing Sims Freeplay and I turned the volume up and was like "too loud" and turned it back to half volume. That's just me though so anyone else could be different
    These aren't my first pair of noise-cancelling headphones, but they're a million times better than the ones I had before. So glad I found them via a review of the Bose ones I had been looking at! I am not an audiophile, so didn't know what brands were best, which is why I read a ton of reviews of a couple different headphones first. (The noise-cancelling feature was a must-have for planes, trains, being a passenger in a car with family who want to talk, etc.)

    I also find the built-in S7 Edge speaker to be really loud. I don't even have my phone ringtone volume up to the max because I find that level far too loud.

    I remember the trepidation I had about the speaker because of all the reviews and comments I had seen talking about the speakers being not so good because of water proofing. When I got my phone I honestly thought wtf were people talking about because I would have the volume up half way or more to play a game and would need to turn the sound down.

    My first set of noise cancelling headphones were only like $15. A cheap pair. But wow did the still do the job

    Am I the only one that can download music from iTunes and have it automatically appear in my Google Music miraculously with no 3rd party app?
    I have never used Google Music (been using iSyncr for many years, ever since my first Android tablet, the Asus Transformer Slider), but I still would need to transfer a bunch of songs that are not iTunes purchases (they were imported from CDs, some as long ago as twelve or more years ago), plus my playlists, so it is much easier to use just one method. I don't use the phone's stock music player, either.

    I still keep my iPhone for music. I bought a 128GB 6S+ in December just to listen to music on. My main phone is still an Android but to me, nothing beats the music player on an iPhone.

    I've tried several of the music players on Android and just can't find any that I like. After trying several and wasting hours trying to tweet the sound, I gave up. I never used or cared for iMessage much and I don't have any friends who use iPhones.
    I've been using poweramp for years and it still works great and I love the equalizer on it.

    I literally just drag and drop my itunes files onto my SD card. Computer auto converts format and I'm good to go.

    By downloading it song by song, correct? I just sync once with iTunes using iSyncr and all my music is there. Any changes are automatically updated next time I sync. No muss, no fuss. Oh, and I can also have playlists with more than 1,000 songs. Try that using Google Play Music.
    Not necessarily. You can have it cache your stuff to your SD card and you can save playlists. May not be perfect, but it works. I don't do much with music on my phone, streaming from Google Play mostly covers it, but it absolutely works with SD cards. Just like saving Play Movies - those can be stored on SD cards, too.

    Unfortunately nothing beats Apple when it comes to the music management. I wish I could get apples music player on Android. I'm not a fan of any music player on the market and forget about that mess that Google made with their music app.

    For my S7 Edge I just downloaded Samsungs music player. I use isync to put my iTunes Playlist on the phone. Best purchase I made years ago as I switch phones a lot.

    In the end I love my 6P, liking my S7E so far and love my iPhone 6S Plus as well.

    Great thread Guys.

    I'll hopefully be moving from my iPhone 6 Plus to the Samsung Galaxy s7 Edge in September.

    I'm hoping my Monster Turbines in-ear work ok with the Samsung.

    Google play music is way better imo. What's wrong with it?

    It's probably just a preference. I too like the music app on iOS over the Google app.

    Are we comparing the right music players for the right scenarios?

    Google Play Music is more suited for subscription service and hence all if its use cases are towards managing music that you subscribe to than you own to. Of course, you can do the latter, but I see a lot of use cases geared towards the first.

    Apple iTunes Music app (not the subscription service) has been around forever to have mastered the skills of personal music management.

    And that might be part of the problem. To me it's cluttered and I just want to listen to my music, not feel like every time I open the app I have to go through hoops because they are trying to sell me something.

    Exactly. I have all my iTunes music in the Google cloud so I have to use the Google music app to play it. I don't like what they've done to the music app over the years. Ever since they started with their own subscription service, they try to push that. The app DOES have nearly the same functions as the iTunes music app except that Googles has the store built in.

    There is no alternative if I want to play my music in the Google cloud at least that I know of. I'm subscribed to Apple music and I do have the app on my S7 Edge which allows me to access off my iTunes music which is in iCloud due to iTunes Match. It's just much more easier to use that app on my Android phone that it is to use Googles own to do the same thing.

    You do not have use the Google App. You can download all your music in Google Music to MP3s on your computer by using Google Music Manager. then copy to your phone or SD Card. From there use any of the many music apps in the play store. I use Power Amp and it blows all the others away.

    Read my post again. I said that I have all my iTunes music in the Google cloud. I already have it on my computer because it is in iTunes.

    I also already have it on my S7 Edge on an SD card. I do not like any of the music players I have tried on my phone so I continue to use my iPhone for music.

    I meant that you could avoid using Itunes all together by downloading the music in MP3 format. I found ITunes to be a nightmare and was thrilled that I could get away from using it at all. I thought most people felt that way as well.

    I love iTunes and I have three Macs here that I use. I will never stop using it and I buy all my music on iTunes instead of on Google.

    To get it on my S7 Edge, I don't even have to convert it. Just download and I copy it over to my S7 Edge and it plays so there is no need to convert to MP3. About the only time I listen to music anymore on my phone is while I am at home so it's not a problem to grab an iPhone to do that.

    I'm with you. Not only do I have way too much invested in iTunes to ever move away from it - not to mention a house full of Macs - it really takes hardly any effort at all to get it to work with Android. In fact, for my use, it's much better than Google Play Music will ever be.

    I use Amazon Prime Music (granted it's $25 a year). It brings all your music and play lists to Amazon music so you can keep on using iTunes like normal.

    It's great for a multi platform house... my wife uses an iPhone and all of our music is in itunes but I'm on Android.

    Worth the $25 for me.

    I love Spotify for music and I use a iPhone 6s+.
    I went from a note 4 to the iPhone. Love the sound quality on the iPhone. For android I used Poweramp. I loved that music player. Had audio equalizer and other settings. Great player.

    So, what does the iPhone player have that y'all are looking for on Android? Personally, I can't think of anything to add to what I get from Rocket Player (I use the Material Dark Purple theme). I have the paid version with the equalizer options.
