It's a good thing you can still use Google Assistant (and Alexa, and...) on an iPhone, then.

 

I won't dispute that GA is better than Siri in general, although I would actually argue that Siri is better in some ways for things like smart home control.  Try asking Siri and GA to turn a light white.  Siri?  A neutral, natural-looking white.  Google... produces yellow.

Bruh. I mean yellow is in the google logo.

You say you've always wanted to use a 'good voice assistant'. Google assistant is the best thing you can use. Siri isn't as good.

well but siri is just smoother as far as i know. I can't use GA with my screen off, sometimes it doesn't open certain apps and the reminders don't work at all. Those things don't happen with siri, plus it also gives you a ton of customization with the shortcuts app.

I switched from android to iphone when the 8 plus came out and I'll only go back to android if apple stops making phones. The software works and I have not had a single issue with it, better then I can say about android. I've been down the just put a rom on it route before and you shouldn't have to do that for your phone to be fast and smooth. I currently use a iphone 11 now and it's been solid, great battery life and camera

To be fair on a phone I’ve never found voice assistants to be anything more than a novelty, google home etc is a different story

I would go with any other phone than iPhone. all of the stuff on your Samsung can be transferred successfully. DO NOT BUY AN IPHONE!! unless you want to pay someone to make decisions for you

I've copied the entire contents of an iPhone (certainly all the stuff I care about) when migrating devices while barely skipping a beat.  And coming from Android, Apple even has a "Move to iOS" app to help you migrate from an Android phone.

 

It's really not that challenging.  If it comes down to it, you can use cloud services to store things that you're worried about so that you can grab them later.
