Samsung Vs Apple (boring I know)

Had an iPhone since the iPhone 4 and am now due an upgrade from my iPhone 6. Not too impressed with the latest iPhone 7. Doesn't seem much different to the 6.

So was thinking about upgrading to the Samsung Edge.

Anyone got one. How does it compare to the iPhone?

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and an iPhone SE. The Edge looks pretty and does loads of things no one ever uses, but Android just doesn't compare to the user experience of iOS.
  • I agree with the above post. IOS is better..I have tried to get on with Android but it just doesn't do it for me. I have an iPhone 4s which is a 5 year old model and it still runs well albeit has just received its last software update as IOS10 is not available for this model.
    So I may have to upgrade in the next 12 months as when Apps stop getting updated. Would any android phone be current for 5 years? If I was to get an Android phone it would not be a Samsung as it is full of bloatware. I would be looking at Nexus or Motorola as I believe they run pure Android.

    Sorry, you're right, boring & been done to death! I have tried iPhones, can't get on with them and prefer Android all day long. My teenagers won't have anything else but Apple so horses for courses.

    If you're going to make the switch, the LG G5 is worth checking out IMHO

    iOS is inferior IMO. Android is more flexible in how it can be set up and allows the phone to be connected to a wide range of other devices with ease where as with iOS you're stuck with what Apple think is best.

    If you want the Apple system you have no choice but a pricey Apple phone

    Another Android recommendation I'd make is the new Moto G4.

    My mate has the G4 Plus (same resolution and P.P.I as the iPhone Plus range) and it flies.

    It pretty much runs stock Android (so no bloatware) and will receive updates from Google much quicker than some of the competition.
    It's not your credit score that counts, it's your credit history. Any replies are my own personal opinion and not a representation of my employer.

    The reason iPhones are "less flexible" is security, for the Apple white paper on the subject see:

    Bad timing, new Google phones seem to be just around the corner...
