What phone OS do you use and why?

What specifically drew you in and made you pick the OS and are you still on it to this day? 

 

I use Apple iOS but i am thinking of switching to an android phone because of the convenience of USB C and the USB C DACs for headphones that are available. And, i am tired of iOS and want something new.

iOS because I own a iPhone… as does the rest of my family.

Android, because Apple can take their proprietary use-limiting BS and stick it where the sun doesn't shine... 🤨

Due to the above, I've likely revised posts <30 min old, and do not think as you do.

Android.  But on a device not made by Google.  It's a choice between:

 

-Overpaying for the device.  Restrictions on what/how you can use it.  Having all your data collected

 

-Marginally overpaying for the device.  Having most of your data collected.  Freedom to use it as you see fit.

iOS 100% because of iMessage.

I'm also not a heavy user - I don't play any games and I'm mostly on Instagram and Twitter, and I don't care about the aesthetics of re-arranging home screen icons, so Android is completely unappealing to me.

12 years of Android flagships, HTC Dream to OnePlus 9 Pro. 

 

Decided to try an iPhone for quite literally the hell of it (12 Pro Max) and to be quite honest, its fine. Even quite nice. Does what I ask and much smoother than any Android phone I've ever had.

Why does a DAC play into it? Most decent DACs have a removable cable; you can just get a Lightening to USB C cable and it'll work the same.

A lot of the better ones even include such a cable in the box.

 

Personally I use Android. I love the customization that it has, something that Apple is very slow to adopt.

That, and USB C. Everything I buy from now on has to be USB C. I have no desire to hunt for cables.

 

Honestly, iPhones have improved greatly over the past few years, and the only thing holding me back now is the lack of USB C.

I'd be willing to try living with apps just shat all over my screen.

 

This post would be far better if you'd actually included a poll.

How does a Google phone restrict what you can do more than any other Android phone?
