It's been about 8 months since I switched from an iPhone to an Android phone. People told me I would not like my Android phone and would switch back very shortly. A co-worker, who went to AT&T to switch from iPhone to Android was told by the salesman that he would be unhappy. Started with the Galaxy S3 and two months later I was the proud owner of a Galaxy Note II. Neither my co-worker or I have looked back. We love our smartphones. I know I talked a few people in this forum into switching. I hope my advice was good. I am wondering how those people like their phones as they close in on a year of ownership. The best things I like about my android phone? Well, the screen of course. There is nothing like browsing the web on a screen that you don't have to squint at. I own an iPad, but never use it. That's because I seem to be satisfied with a phone that has a large enough screen that it satisfies my tablet needs. Love using a stylus. I don't miss putting my greasy fingers all over the phone. I use the stylus for everything and my screen is finger-print free. I have an extra battery so I never have to worry about my phone going dead without a charger nearby. Never could do that on an iPhone. I love the customization I can do on the phone. I love the fact that there are more free (and cheaper) apps available than there were in the Apple App Store. In all, this has been the best phone I have ever owned. Very tough for me to put Apple down, but this is one area that they have been unable to keep me as a customer.
