I was one of the people who always was against APPLE products, even though I had the iPad, i always was against APPLE, and I always used to advice my friends to purchase androids.
When Apple introduced iPhone 4s, I purchased the samsung s2, and i was amazed with the ability of customization that I was able to do, and the amount of applications that i was able to download, especially that I was a BlackBerry user, who was just stuck with its stupid ecosystem (if it has one). And then my closest friend bought the iphone 4s. I used to laugh at him, because he couldn’t do anything from what I was doing, and that is that trap that I was in, I thought I was doing more, but I did in the first few days, then I started to use the phone just like an iphone.
The thing that I wasn’t saying is that I had a mobile that I couldn’t get the accessories that I wanted, but my friend did, and i was stuck with the plasticy, out of proportion mobile that I had to use it by two hand, even though i used to argue that it is a smarter phone, with more specification, but i was in that swinging mood between loving the system and hating the physical touch of it. and that made me sell the plastic toy I used to have.
I sold the s2, and I started using the BlackBerry Z10, which I thought that it is the next innovative mobile that will be in the market, and I wasn’t more wrong about it.
I still have the Z10, and I bought the Samsung S4 to my wife, with all these air gestures that it has, and all the specifications that APPLE doesn’t have, but guess what ! all these options are switched off, because there is no need for it !! i wouldn’t hover my finger above the album to check what is inside, and I wouldn’t tilt my head to scroll down a page. and touching the screen makes me feel that I was touching a toy, it is a big plasticy phone that I can’t scroll down the notification bar with one hand, unless I do some kind of acrobatic move raising the chance to drop the phone !
So I made my decision, I’m moving to iOS, and that is for the following reasons:
1) The strong ecosystem
APPLE AppStore is the best store compared to Android Play Store, windows, and BlackBerry. It is the safest, and the richest store ever. Most of the application are built right, that runs so smooth on APPLE devices, and everyone can feel that AppStore respects the hardware that the devices have, and provide a compatible applications for it.
2) The SUPPLEMENTARY
Apple has one of the largest communities, and this community loves apple, and loves apple’s customers, and that made them produce a huge amount of accessories that are fit only for apple. Go to any mobile accessories store, and you’ll find that 70% of the accessories they have is Apple friendly. but you will not find that with the huge android providers such as Samsung, HTC and LG. I’m not saying that there is no accessories, but not as Apple’s.
3) Quality not Quantity
Until today, My friend has his iPhone 4s, and it is running iOS 7 smoothly, but I sold my S2 4 months ago, and before selling it, it had all these cheap scratches from the Cheap Quality.
Samsung provides a lot of features in its mobiles, and a lot of specifications that 90% of the S4 users disable just to save battery. I’m not saying that they are not innovative, Yes they are, but they are useless, and the devices have very low quality.
I’m saying that iPhone provides high quality products that can last a lot longer, with the specifications that 90% of the users are satisfied with, and they don’t want more. (I’m not saying about HTC, because
4) After Market Price
it is a very important features, iPhone has the highest after market price, and that is very motivational for me, maybe because I upgrade from phone to phone a lot, and because when i want to sell to move to another brand, i will garantee that I will not loose much value
I’m thinking about getting the iPhone 5s, and enter the world of iOS not by the iPad, but by the iPhone. Even though I invested some money in Google Play store purchasing a lot of application, but I think it worth it, because Apple provides the thing that are useful, not more, and it is well done, balanced device with a balanced system with the balanced hardware it has. I think I’m going to love it, and I hope so.
