I want to switch to android from iphone, I find ios frustrating to use sometimes despite knowing it pretty well.

 

I heard the s23 comes out like tomorrow, should I get one?

 

my iphone 13 mini battery barely lasts half the day as well which is also frustrating.

I genuinely think you just want to burn money that you just got in the past year. From all of your posts lol.

 

s22 Ultra was a  pretty harsh flop overall from everything that came about from it. Still a decent phone from all the reviews and stuff, but way to many glaring issues and bugs, some fixed some not.

 

Im questioning your phone size choice, going from one of the smaller phones to quite literally the largest, are you sure you actually want that? I enjoy big phones cause of my large hands, but most people find them not so enjoyable. 

 

I would await reviews, never pre-order based on what they promise, only buy on what they deliver.

They just want someone who confirms they should burn some money. Yes, pre-order that darn thing! (if only you could carry along a second battery for your iphone)

The only reason i bought the mini was because it was the cheapest new iphone at the time and i wanted the faster processor for games.

 

I will wait for reviews. I do that with most things anyways.

 

Im just tired of apples nonsense as well. I dont like apples ui too much, and ive tried my friends android phones and they feel more responsive/faster than my iphone.

Are you sure the responsiveness isn't due to higher refresh rates on your friends' phones? I have an iPhone 13 Pro, and it feels very responsive in part due to the 120Hz screen. An iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max may overcome that part of things. And yes, the 13 mini's battery is the smallest of the bunch... Apple's larger phones last longer.

 

With that said, if you want to try Android, I would wait until reviews of the Galaxy S23 series pop up (usually a few days before they reach stores). The sweet spot is likely to be the S23+ since it'll have a large screen and battery, but won't include pen input you're unlikely to use. I'd only get the Ultra if you insist on the expected 200MP main camera.

Nope, they all had 60hz. Apps loaded faster too.

 

I just want the better operating system. ios feels pretty limited compared to android.

That's not my experience, and I have a Pixel 6 with a 90Hz display on my desk! Don't get me wrong, it's a smooth phone, but I'd go with the iPhone 13 Pro for anything performance-oriented.

 

I also don't mind iOS these days, as Android's main advantages now are custom launchers and the occasional sideloaded app. But I also know that these can be precisely what makes it appealing, so... go for it! Samsung just announced the Galaxy S23 line, so pick the one you can best justify (the S23+ would be the sweet spot for me, but the S23U's 200MP camera...).

Check that there's not something wrong with your iphone. In theory their mobile chips should wipe the floor against any android that's not the latest flagship. Apple is usually the fastest one, just about always.

I'd like to recommend something other than samsung.  How about Motorola?  You might think who the hell is that?  But they have a very clean android experience, and seem to be very reliable.  My brother has only replace his phone twice in nearly a decade.  Each time, getting a motorolla brand android.

 

Sony seems like a good option too, excellent audio chip in those, and they have an online website just to explain how to unlock the bootloader, and don't try to prevent it like samsung does.

 

I  actually encourage you to buy used.  I know, bad batteries, limited software support etc etc.  Yeah, well I'm on android 8, and I plan to keep it that way as long as possible.  No malware, viruses, in fact it must be pver a year or maybe even two, since I've opened the google play store.  Spotify still works, and anything I use now is from f-droid.

PC specs:

 

Would like to use Linux, but using Windows 10 because wi-fi shenanigans / Linux wi-fi software issues, specific to my hardware.

 

Intel Xeon quad core, clocked down and peaks at around 0.97Ghz, even though it's set higher

2 GB DDR3 clocked down to 800Mhz and undervolted 2.8v

GPU: GTX 960 (more than enough for games I play)

SSD: Samsung 840 232GB

HDD: 4 old spinners, less than 500GB each, only two or so in use usually.  One dedicated to Linuxes, and the rest for downloads / games.
