    it was more practical for me due to things like imessage, airdrop, and other walled garden related things. i don't use my phone for many computer-like functions so having a filesystem and customization and so on wasn't appealing to me.

    I did. I've used android since middle school [am 22 now], had a Nexus 5X, Galaxy S3 mini, and other poorfag phones. Picked up an iPhone XR this year, and it's based. iCloud is more secure than Google ever will be, Apple has repeatedly refused to hand over data to the FBI. Not to mention Google is just DARPA-lite

    I used to root and rice on Android, kinda got over that a bit in highschool, so my XR today just werks and the OCR on iPhones images are insane. You can even touch and hold on an object in an image and it'll copy the object for you to paste it. unfortunately i showered with my xr, washed it with shampoo, and the display got rekt by humidity.

      i had the exact same experience, moved to apple for the ux in high school but recently i became more concerned with my privacy and traded my iphone x for a pixel 4 this week. the thing is, it doesnt matter if they refuse to hand data over, they shouldnt have that data in the first place. i came to the conclusion that for privacy, degoogled android > apple > regular google/chinkshit android

        i dont care if its degoogled. the difference between nexus' and pixels are that pixels are the government rebranding of a hype train the feds saw for the developer phones that are nexus'. the nexus' are an entire different breed than the pixels. the pixels aren't even advertised for developers [like the nexus was] The pixel is DARPA spyware. i feel like this is a pre-snowden era with the pixels where if you said your device had backdoors youd be told you were a schizo. well, I'm not.

      the second most private and secure option is an android with custom privacy focused rom. last time i used a jailbroken iphone it had cydia, i don't know how secure that is compared to the new privacy oriented roms on android

    I've had four Android phones since 2010 and I bought an iPad to replace my dying old laptop. The art and graphics apps I got it for to use on the go are very nice, but the App Store is too restrictive (no LULZ apps allowed apparently), the browser policy that every third-party browser has to be a frontend for Safari is nonsensical (no extensions allowed) and I can't sideload apps like I can on Android.

    I really wish Android had a good art ecosystem, it would make it much easier to replace it with a Samsung Galaxy Tab.

    I went Android 2.3/4.4 > iPhones for almost a decade > Android 12.

    I don't want to go back to iOS even though Android is not nearly as smooth and polished. The main reason Apple becomes extremely hostile when you try to escape their walled garden. It was a pain in the ass to get my data off iCloud, especially photos; and before that I even managed to lock myself out of it for a week because of some stupid security policy of theirs.
    On Android you can remove 90% (or even 100%) of Google bullshit and use the phone on your terms. This + your own cloud is the way to go.

    iPhone is #2 for me. I got a Pixel since it has "cooler" features like *magic* eraser and the best dictation function in the world, also small things like USB-C. But if Pixel phones didnt exist i would 100% get an iPhone. All other android brands are disgusting to me because of software. OnePlus was based but became one of the worst ones recently, i also had a OnePlus 7 Pro which i liked because of no notch at all + pretty much stock android

    for what i do on them (shitpost on chat services, browse reddit/social media, send/receive calls and sms), they're functionally identical. apple has no LULZ app, which is a bit cringe, but that's kinda the only issue.

    I had an Android up til the end of high school, at which point I felt ostracized for not having iMessage and decided to use my extra work money to get an iPhone XR. It was nice, but I realized social media and shit like iMessage is fucking useless so I downgraded to a 2016 SE and have been using it ever since. Still just werks, though it doesn't support iOS 16 so it may be time to migrate soon.
    For a brief stint a few months back I picked up a Pixel 4a to try and switch back to the FOSS life on my phone after returning to Linux from Winblows, but honestly it seemed like too much of a step down from my SE even though its newer It was big (despite being marketed as a "small" phone), the new Android UI is garbage (especially the shit ass notification pane), and most importantly you can't just disable Google Play Services since that breaks half of the apps. I had planned to install LineageOS but I got fucked because apparently Verizon locks the bootloader, and either way it seems the Lineage devs are cocksuckers who only support the latest models.
    All I use my phone for beyond the basic calling/texting is GPS, music, camera, and fitness tracking. Part of me wants to give Android another shot but my gf is glued tight to the Apple ecosystem and will not use anything but iCloud for photos so for the time being I have to make do.

    I used an iphone 3 for 2 days, hated it, went back to my shitty huawei ideos, then an htc evo 4g, I then got an iphone 4 and ended up giving it to my dad because i hated it.

    Apple is indeed a walled garden... walls everywhere: bluetooth file transfer was shit, the web browser was shit, media playback was a pain in the balls, file managing was shit, apps where also shit or non existant, crapple maps was trash too.

    Rooting with cydia was nice and easy but whats the bloody fucking point if you got no apps to fiddle with?

    Damn thing didnt even have a micro sd slot and battery life was ok but you cant swap a battery if you run out.

    Had some nice animations and eye candy but that was about it.

    10 years ago I had hope that Android could develop into something worthwhile. It just devolved into two markets: race to the bottom disposable phones, and gimmick "feature" phones that either try to be iPhones or are used by people addicted to cellphone lootbox games.

    Getting my family into this "ecosystem" has been a burden in the long run. Google does whatever the fuck they want with their services and apps. You can imagine trying to explain to your mom why she has 2 or 3 apps called Messages and only one of those is the "right" one.

    Software and hardware support is hypothetical. Google themselves are trying to wall off Android, as exemplified by Android 13 - it essentially treats non-Play Store apps as if they are viruses, requiring digging in submenus to give them access to do anything of merit. Any non-stock ROM will get dropped like a hot bag of shit, even within a year of the device launch. Aftermarket ROM support is rare (due to the sheer number of variables that force support to occur on a device-by-device basis), and if you do have it, good luck explaining to someone how their device has newfound limitations and specific bugs that limit their use.

    If this situation was always inevitable, I could have saved myself the headache of explaining why MMS sent to and received from relatives don't work right, or why the charging cable is different now, or why they can't get an Airdrop from Aunt Soandso.

    And all because of 1) idealism 2) trying to save $200 3) contrarianism
