I’ve been an Apple freak since 1983 when my dad bought us an Apple IIe and learned how to write my first code on that thing when I was in the 4th grade. Flash-forward 30+ years and I still use Apple products every day. But, after some serious back and forth in my mind about getting a new phone I jumped ship and tried an Android out. GASP.
I bought an LG G2 last December and I really feel I’ve given it a fair shot but I can honestly say that I’ve missed my iPhone. I miss the simplicity in the UI. I miss the super-easy configuration, the consistency in the UI across apps, the tactile feel of the device and lastly the seemless tie-in across devices.
Sure, the Android is way more configurable and I can modify all kinds of settings that I can touch on the iPhone but as excited as I was about those tweaks when I got the phone I can honestly say that at this point it’s more of a hassle than anything. I just want it to work and want it to look clean. I want everything to be where it should be and this is where Apple excels.
So, come fall I’ll be returning to my roots and recertifying my Apple junkie card. Goodbye LG and welcome back iPhone.
