    Currently own Apple

    Considering taking the plunge. I currently own an Iphone.
    It's between Iphone XS Max & Samsung S10+.
    The cost of a Samsung Galaxy S10+ is more budget friendly than Iphone XS Max.
    I have an Ipad which I like being able to transfer automatically from my phone.
    Leary of Google Photos.

    In advance, grateful for feedback.

    Thank you!

    You're in the apple environ. So it'll be tough to escape. Personally I wouldn't go samsung. I'd look at Motorola but you'll have to spend $500 or less. I don't know if you're dead set on having to spend $1,200 though.
    I will be Judged on how I helped the poor, sick & others in need; strangers & loved ones alike.

    Honestly I wouldn’t bother. You’re gonna get a longer lifespan sticking with an Apple device then you would Android considering Apple supports their devices with updates for about five years where as Samsung just now started with three years on only their newer phones. Besides price are there particular reasons why you’re considering Android?

    I prefer Apple devices. I love them with all my heart. Yes, the price is high, but once bought & forgot. That’s it.

    Personally I think top tier Androids or iPhones are a waste of money for most people. Or a status symbol. Interesting that people will spend a $1000+ for a phone and then worry about finding the cheapest plan/carrier.

    Mainly due to there being not much difference between carriers these days, no matter if you use a mvno or not. Carriers don't overly matter, they all work pretty much the same, devices however are more important to the user, as that's what stores all their data and is what they have in their hands using all the time.

    Apps rule phone functionality. Many/ Most android - Google Play Store apps are also available on the Apple App Store.

    I feel like I get the best of both Android & Apple when using my iPhone SE 2020. I speak to Siri to ask for Google Assistant, which I think is

    better than Siri. Both Apple & Google maps, Google Photos, Google voice, Google Duo audio-video chat or FaceTime. iMessage yes, Google

    messaging app, no. Google voice messages yes because you have a separate number.

    Functionally, most everything on Android can be used on an Apple iPhone. So why switch ? Just my 2 cents.

    They may be available on the google play store but they don’t always look or perform the same as they do on apple devices. There is a huge difference using things such as Instagram and Snapchat on an iPhone vs an android. Even some of googles own apps work and look better on an iPhone.

    Fantastic point ! I’ve not used Android phones enough to realize this. So, apps are optimized on an iPhone it sounds

    like, whether from the Play store, or the App Store. Great to know - thanks
